Skincare is an important part of any beauty regime. It can be a real minefield and you may not know what you are doing. In this article I will show you how to get the best results from your skincare routine.
1. Use only good quality products.
This is the most important tip for your skincare routine. You want to use only products that are made by reputable companies, with high standards of safety and quality. If you find a product that is cheap and nasty then it’s probably going to do more harm than good.
2. Don’t use too much at one time.
If you apply a product too often then you can actually damage your skin. For example, if you have dry skin you shouldn’t apply moisturizer or lotion every day. Instead, apply them twice a week.
3. Wash your face thoroughly before applying any products.
Washing your face thoroughly will remove any dirt and make sure that you don’t introduce any new problems into your skin.
4. Don’t overdo it.
If you are using a lot of products then you need to take it easy. You don’t want to overwhelm your skin. If you are using a product that is meant to reduce acne then don’t use it every day. Instead, just use it once a week and see how your skin reacts to it.
5. Don’t forget your neck and decolletage.
You should always use a good quality moisturizer for these areas as well.
6. Don’t use harsh products.
You should always try to avoid products that contain alcohol, acids, and other harsh chemicals. They can irritate your skin and cause it to react badly.
7. Don’t use products that contain fragrances.
These products can actually clog up your pores and cause your skin to look worse.
8. Don’t use products that are too strong.
Some products are too strong for your skin. These can be very drying and cause your skin to become flaky.
9. Don’t use products that have a strong smell.
Some people think that if they have a strong smell then it must be good for their skin. This is not true. Some people can be allergic to certain smells and so they can end up with really bad skin.
10. Don’t use products that aren’t suitable for your skin type.
Your skin type can affect the way in which you use certain products. For example, if you are prone to acne then you should use products that contain salicylic acid.
11. Don’t use products that you don’t like.
Don’t use products that you don’ like because you think that you need them. Try out different products until you find something that you like.
12. Don’t forget to cleanse.
You should always cleanse your face before applying anything else.
13. Don’t forget to tone.
Tone your skin after washing and before applying your products.
14. Don’t forget to exfoliate.
Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells from your face. You should exfoliate at least once a week.
