Your Daily Regimen
Keeping your skin healthy means following a daily regimen that will moisturize and fortify the skin. Building that regimen is essential for healthy skin.
Cleansing and Nourishing the Skin
Cleansing eliminates grime, dirt and bacteria, but it tends to be hard on skin. Select cleansers that are free of soap and mineral oil which can dry and irritate your skin. Cleansing should only be done once or twice a day. Once is preferable if you have sensitive skin. Rinse your skin using warm water, rather than hot water. Hotter water can cause irritation and dryness.
Rich cleansing products without soap feature a gentler blend of beneficial ingredients that will cleanse the skin effectively without drying it.
Maintaining Proper Moisture Levels
Moisturizing is one of the most essential steps in your daily regimen for skin care. Hydration helps to create a protective barrier between your skin and the environment. It locks in moisture and deflects debris and dirt.
A hydrating or moisturizing lotion should be used after you cleanse your skin. If you choose a moisturizer with SPF sun protection, it can serve a dual purpose. Emollients in these lotions work especially well on sensitive or dry skin.
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
Sun protection is extremely important. The best products will irritate the skin the least while providing more protection to block out the harmful rays of the sun. Some of the best sun blocks are fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, so that they do not aggravate acne-prone skin or irritate sensitive skin.
Be Mindful of Makeup Choices
If you have dry skin, use liquid makeup types that are silicon-based. This will cause less irritation. Face powder also works well to put your best face forward.
Keeping Your Skin Fresh and Dry
Treating skin properly doesn’t end with the face and hands. You do not need to irritate skin to protect from odor during your long days. Many deodorants contain chemicals that may cause irritation of your skin. Choose a deodorant that does not contain fragrances. Roll-ons may also be most effective for you, applied just after you step from the shower in the morning.
Keeping Skin Healthy
Your daily regimen should help in providing you with a healthy, beautiful complexion. Select formulas that work best with your type of skin. This will mean less irritation and reaction from products.
The Importance of a Daily Skin Care Regimen
Cleansing may be the first part of your skin regimen, but toning the skin is important, too. Skin should be toned and treated if you have any type of problem skin. Moisturizing should be done in the morning and at night, and sunscreen should always be used in the morning, before you head outside for the day. If you will be in the sun, reapply your sunscreen every two hours.
You may wish to use an big exfoliation once a week, and use a gentler exfoliant more regularly if your morning and evening cleansing are not keeping your skin as clean as you would like.
Use Products for Your Skin Type
If you have normal skin, utilize skin care products that will not strip the moisture from it. Light moisturizers can be used after mild cleansers, and add sunscreens last.
Oily skin has demands that normal skin does not. Balance your skin by using products that don’t add oil to that which your skin already produces. Select oil-free, light moisturizers and use sunscreens.
Using good moisturizing products can help dry skin. These will help to repair a damaged lipid layer and trap moisture in the skin. Choose creamy, gentle cleansers and moisturizers that give back to the skin.
