Everyone dreams of a flawless skin but when it comes to taking care of it we seldomly do it.
Girls have alot of skin issues and face skin is the most sensitive part of the body so it needs the most care.
And to avoid these skin problems and have a flawless angel-like skin there are some routines that need to be followed.
A basic skincare routine consists of 6 products and 5 subjects as:
- Eye cream
These are the basics of routine which should be followed religiously twice a day except exfoliation and mask that is for twice a week
These two should be followed after cleansing and then followed up by serum after skipping toning.
Let's just jump into a detailed description of these steps:
Start with a clean slate. The best way to ensure that every trace of dirt is removed from the skin is by double cleansing. Remove makeup and pollutants first with micellar water like Garnier micellar water, then wash your face with a cream cleanser, if you have normal to dry skin or gel cleanser, if you’re oily to combination skin, to break up any dirt and oil still lurking around.
Our face is naked to a lot of dirt which sits on our skin. And is a habitat of dead skin cells that settle on our skin and age our skin fast. To avoid it we should resort to exfoliation every alternate day. By regular or chemical exfoliants, but make sure that the fibers of exfoliator shouldn't be really hard. The best type of exfoliation is chemical exfoliation
Once scrubbing is done It should be followed up by a good mask or face pack to seal up the screen and minimizing of the pores. There are alot of masks available in the market in various variety.
- Disclaimer: These steps will be followed only twice a week
Once face is completely clean its exposed to alot of hazards like blackheads etc as cleansing opens the pores so to shrink those pores and to tighten the skin next step is toner. The best toner is the witch hazel toner by Thayer, or rose water. A good toner feels like a bit stretchy on the skin when the mask will be applied use of toner won't be necessary
Go for an alcohol-free toner
This is my favorite step which is a serum since its the game changer product Since serums are full of powerful hero ingredients like antioxidants and retinol etc, we should apply them early in our routines so our skin can really soak it up. Serum should be applied by patting on the skin rather than slathering it so that it penetrates and absorb completely. A good rule of thumb is to apply thinner formulas underneath thicker ones
The undereye area is the most delicate part of our face and the first to show signs of aging, which is why it deserves its own special step in your regimen. Gently tap on eye cream with your ring finger to keep it young and fresh
Coming down to the final step in the routine. Moisturizing is what keeps skin hydrated thus supports skin to fight wrinkles and other signs of aging This includes oily skin types which usually skip moisturizer thinking it will make skin more oily but When your skin senses dehydration, it actually produces more oil which can make matters worse, so it’s important to maintain skin balance and hydration.
