We all dream of having smooth, flawless skin, but with more products on shelves and more skincare advice we see on the internet, it’s not always easy to find the perfect skin care routine that works best for you. In this article, we’ll be discussing some of the essentials. From choosing the right cleanser for your skin type to the importance of cleaning your makeup brushes, we’ll be giving you some tips you can use in your skincare routine. When done regularly, these tips will show their effectiveness on your skin no matter what your age is.
Have a simple skincare routine
When it comes to taking care of your skin, you have to know what works and what doesn’t work for you. Some products may not be as effective to you compared to others. Making your skincare routine simple with fewer products saves you a lot of time and money. So it’s better to use products you trust and make them the core of your skincare routine.
Moisturize twice a day
The best time to moisturize is in the morning after taking a bath and before going to bed. Also, avoid moisturizers that are too heavy in fragrances, make sure you choose a moisturizer that is light and gentle on the skin to keep away from skin irritation.
Hydrate inside and out
Skin products that are cleansing, moisturizing, and anti-aging usually contain hydrating formulas that keep our skin looking bright, clean, and fully moisturized. But it’s also important to hydrate on the inside, drink at least eight(8 oz.) glasses of water every day to keep yourself well-hydrated.
Skin benefits from sleep, too. Having a complete and relaxed sleep every night avoids our skin from having acne breakouts. Bedsheets and pillowcases are also factors when it comes to taking care of our skin, using clean silk pillowcases are beneficial to our skin since silk slides down our skin easily and prevents creases and wrinkles.
Don’t forget your sunscreen
Rain or shine, indoors or outdoors, we should have sunscreen all the time to protect our skin from harsh sunlight, extreme heat, and UV rays. Try to find sunscreen win an SPF of 30 or higher and sunscreen should also be reapplied every 2 hours for lesser exposure.
Clean your makeup brushes
Dirty makeup brushes tend to collect dirt and bacteria that could clog your pores or irritate your skin. Wash your concealer and foundation brushes a least once a week, twice a month for eye brushes, and once a month for the rest of the brushes you have. You can clean your makeup brushes with a drop of gentle shampoo and warm water, then use your hands to lather and massage the shampoo on the bristles of each brush. Then you can lay the brushes sideways on a towel to let them dry.
Choose the correct cleanser according to your skin type
Know what your skin type is first, try to identify what your skin needs(such as hydrating, anti-aging, acne prevention, etc.) because not all cleansers are the same. Some are formulated for specific reasons and some might not be effective on your skin if you have the wrong cleanser.
