Many people invest on skincare, especially when they reach adulthood. However, no matter how expensive your products are, they won’t be as effective without a proper skincare routine. Here’s how you can make it work.
Wash your face. Accomplish the basics of skincare first. Using a gentle soap or cleanser, wash your face with warm water to remove dirt and oil. This allows the succeeding products to work well on your face and also prepares your skin for makeup.
Treat your eyes. Wrinkles and fine lines are more obvious around the eye area. Prevent these from developing by using an eye cream that suits your skin type. Aloe-based creams are best for puffy eyes while creams with grapeseed extract are ideal for dark circles.
Apply moisturizer. You need to restore the natural moisture of your skin. Never miss this step because doing so will only dry out your face and make it more prone to lines and breakouts. Gently massage a small amount into your face, neck, and chest.
Wash and exfoliate. Never miss the washing part, especially if you’ve been out the whole day. It is also important to exfoliate at least once or twice a week. Use an exfoliating cleanser that goes deep on your skin to remove dead skin cells and other impurities.
For Morning After
Use serum. A facial serum for anti-aging is best used at night as it repairs skin problems while you sleep. Serums go deeper than moisturizers allowing its active ingredients to work on your skin overnight. Gently massage it into trouble spots for quicker results.
Apply night cream. Night creams are just like moisturizers except that, well, they are used at night. Use a cream that’s rich in vitamins and antioxidants to help repair skin damage and make you look fresh and bright in the morning.
Research on the best products for your skin type to make sure that your face gets the care it needs. The routine may be daunting at first but putting an effort will reap you lovely rewards in the future.
