Everyone wants great skin, but finding the perfect routine can be a challenge. When you’re first getting started with skin care, it’s best to keep it simple and try products with natural ingredients. Keeping it simple will allow you to find out what works for your skin type and what doesn’t. As with any skin routine, you’ll want to keep an eye out for dryness, redness, and peeling when it comes to trying new products.
Try these easy steps to create your perfect skin care routine:
After a long day, it might be tempting to skip washing off your makeup and hop into bed. However, when you sleep with makeup on, your skin does not get a chance to generate new cells. This can result in dull skin and breakouts in the morning. An easy fix for this is to establish a cleansing routine in the morning and night that will remove all makeup, dirt, and impurities on your skin. It’ll only take 30 seconds, and you’re guaranteed to wake up feeling more fresh faced-- and also have a nicer glow as you start your day.
While you could get away with skipping this step, a toner can really help tighten and tone your skin for the day. Your pores will look smaller and you’ll have a great base for applying makeup. At night, it acts as another way to remove dirt and oil from the skin, or any makeup that could be left over. It’s always best to thoroughly clean the skin in order to prevent breakouts.
This is the most important step! Don’t skip your moisturizer. At morning and night, it’s very important to refresh your skin with a moisturizer that suits your skin type. Even if you have oily skin, moisturizer will not make your skin break out more. It will actually help keep your skin balanced. During the day, choose an oil-free moisturizer with at least SPF 15 to protect against fine lines and sun damage. For evenings, choose a night cream that with restorative benefits that will help improve your skin as you sleep. Vitamins A & E are great choices to include in your night creme. Before long, you’ll be saying hello to beautiful skin!
