Flawless beautiful skin is something that everyone wants. If you want to achieve flawless skin you have to start with a skincare routine. One of the most important things to remember about a skincare routine is that consistency is key. You HAVE to be consistent. Your skincare products will start training your skin and if you aren’t consistent it will throw everything out of balance.
A good skincare regimen will have a morning schedule and an evening schedule. A good morning routine should consist of cleanser, serum and a light moisturizer with sun protection. Do not forget the sunscreen, it is very important and will prevent your skin from premature aging. A night routine should have a cleanser, serum and a thick night cream. A thick cream should be put on at night because your body does a lot of its healing while you are sleeping. A thick cream will last on your face longer and give all those nutrients in the cream a chance to work its way into your skin while it is healing.
Something you should also take into consideration when setting up your skincare regimen is your skin type. There are four basic skin types: dry, normal, oily, and combination skin. If your skin is dry you should use products that are hydrating. With normal skin you can pretty much use any cleanser but you don’t want to over do it. If you use too many hydrating products, your skin can become too oily. If you use too many products that strip the oil off your skin you can begin to develop dry skin. For oily skin, an oil-absorbing cleanser should be used. This will help your skin throughout the day to not become so oily. At night use a cleanser that is not as harsh, if you are using a harsh cleanser morning and night it can strip your skin, causing it to become inflamed and irritated.
Now let’s talk about serums. Serums are my favorite part of my skincare routine. There are so many serums out there and you can use a different serum everyday if you wanted. Serums are used to treat a specific problem like pigmentation, aging, pollution, or dryness. If you are concerned about aging use an aging serum. I use a different serum in my morning routine than I do in my night routine. In the morning I like to use an antioxidant serum to help protect my skin from the harsh pollution in the air since I will be outside alot during the day. At night I like to use an anti-aging serum to prevent my skin from premature aging. There are so many serums out there and it is so easy to find one with any skin concern you have.
How you treat your is how your skin is going to look. Be consistent with your skin. It can be hard to take care of your skin after a long day but your skin will be happy and healthy if you do. There are millions of skincare products out there to choose from. If one of them isn’t working for your skin, try something else! Always love your skin.
