How to Build the Best Skin Care Routine Suited for You
When you’re looking to improve your everyday skin care routine, there are quite a few things to take into consideration so that you are tailoring your experience to the needs of your skin specifically. Some people have oily skin, others have dry skin, and many people experience combination skin. Depending on the weather, the time of year, what you eat, what you drink, and the products you use, your skin can evolve and behave differently.
It may sound silly to discuss skin this way, but when you think about it, the skin is the largest organ of the body. The skin on the bottom of your feet, for example, varies greatly from the skin on your face and neck. In order to take good care of the skin you’re in, you must first assess exactly what your skin truly needs.
Back to Basics – Skincare 101
Before we discuss more in-depth approaches to building the perfect skin care routine, it is important that we go over some basic skin care rules.
First and foremost, before attempting to address your skin’s needs, the first thing you should always make a habit of doing at least twice per day is thoroughly washing your face. This might sound like an elementary suggestion, but you may be surprised how many people simply forget to deeply clean their skin. When you wake up in the morning, after spending several hours in a deep slumber, your face is riddled with natural oils that have been seeping out of your pores all night, as well as numerous microscopic dead skin particles. Start your day with a fresh, clean palette instead of putting products on top of the oils and dead skin! If you don’t wash your face, you will clog your pores further and be more prone to oily skin and breakouts.
Then, before bed, deeply washing all of the dirt, residue, make up, pollutants, and other harsh microscopic particles off of your skin is absolutely imperative. Splashing water on your face quickly and hopping into bed is simply not going to be effective. We cannot emphasize enough that washing your face thoroughly at least twice a day is one of the important keys to healthy, youthful, radiant skin.
Next, after washing your skin in the morning, it is important to apply sunblock. Even on a cloudy day, the harsh UV rays can cause irreparable damage to your skin, speed up signs of aging, and put you at risk for more severe skin conditions as well. Find a sunblock with natural ingredients that is at least SPF 25, and make it a habit of putting it on your clean face in the morning before going anywhere.
The More Natural, the Better
Now that the basics are behind us, we can get to the nitty-gritty. Tailoring a skin care routine to your exact needs can be challenging, because you want to strike a perfect balance of taking good care of your skin, using products that accentuate your beauty, and not overdoing it so you don’t damage your skin accidentally while trying to look and feel your best.
After your face is clean and you applied a thin layer of sunblock, consider using a natural moisturizer if you have dry skin or a natural toner if you have oily skin. This will help you control the issues your skin might be prone to experience throughout the day ahead of time.
When it comes to your makeup choices, natural is always better. Look for products that contain very few ingredients, and that use minerals and plant-derived ingredients instead of chemicals.
Try to avoid products that contain parabens and other toxins found in many makeups. Always read the labels and choose natural, holistic products for your skin’s benefit.
In the evening, after you wash your face and your skin is completely clean, dermatologists recommend a three-step process to promote healthy skin. First, apply a clarifying toner to make sure your pores do not become clogged. Next, apply a retinol-based natural cream or serum, which acts to restore skin’s elasticity and prevent or minimize fine lines. Finally, after your skin is dry, apply a light layer of a moisturizer. Retinol-based creams and serums are known to have a drying effect on the skin, so a light moisturizer can help balance it out. If you are prone to having oily skin, look specifically for a natural moisturizer made for oily skin, because it won’t contain ingredients that will over-moisturize and cause breakouts.
