Your Facial Skin Care Routine – The Top Dos and Don'ts
We all have been stumped from time to time over where exactly to go in the wealth of facial care products that are available to us. Do you need creams, softeners, plumpers, or hydrators? Or are they all the same thing?
Before you lose all hope, here are some simple dos and don'ts to caring for your skin and establishing a solid facial skin care routine. These tips will guide you through the many cosmetic aisles in your local drugstore so that you can find the right products to work with your skin.
Find a Cleanser Tailored to Meet Your Needs
Look for a cleanser that your skin responds the best to and that will work correctly for your skin type to give you the highest quality facial care. Bar soaps should be avoided, as they are known to dry out the skin and cause irritation.
Also, be careful not to cleanse too often in your facial skin care routine, since over-cleansing skin can actually cause damage. Washing at night is recommended to remove makeup, dirt, and all the oils from the day.
Using water that is too hot or too cold can also be harmful because it can cause broken capillaries to the skin, leading to severe and irreparable redness. Use warm water to loosen oil from the pores to give you the best facial skin care result.
Exfoliate to Help Your Makeup Go on More Smoothly
Be sure that you do include this vital step in caring for your skin, as exfoliating will slough off all of the dead cells on your face that can mix with your sebum (oil) and cause sticky masses that contribute to breakouts. Sounds nice, huh? But it really is a concern to make sure you are using an exfoliant to remove the dull layer from the top of your skin.
Exfoliating is also beneficial to women who are having issues with the appearance of their makeup on their face. If your makeup is beginning to look dull and flaky, then use an exfoliant to remove the dead surface cells and give your makeup a much fresher look.
Do Not Skip Moisturizer!
This, I would say, is one of the most common mistakes that men and women make in their methods of facial skin care. Many people with oily or combination skin shy away from moisturizing, as they feel it will cause their skin to be even more greasy and problematic. False!
Find a quality moisturizer and begin to use it with any skin type because the number one goal for facial care is balance. Cleansing and moisturizing will balance your skin perfectly, while neglecting to moisturize will cause the skin to dry out and produce even more oil. That is precisely what you were trying to avoid!
I recommend my clients look for natural skin care products that contain Shea Butter, Grapeseed Oil, and Honey – all natural, healthy emollients that will improve the condition of your skin without harmful side effects like clogging or drying.
On the flip side, it is possible to cause clogged pores by over moisturizing, but if you are combining cleansing and moisturizing, then you can create the perfect balance for your face!
Moisturizers seal moisture into your skin, which is the prime aid in keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay since sagging skin is due to a lack of moisture and elasticity.
Now that you have learned the right and wrong methods of facial skin care, you can take these tips to heart when you are searching for the best facial skin care for you. They may seem simple, but there are some of the building blocks to revitalizing a dull complexion.
