knows that in order to have beautiful and healthy skin, you need
to take care of of it by cleansing, moisturizing and protecting.
However, to really have beautiful skin, day after day, you have
to go a step further than that.
Cleaning: You want to clean your skin with a gentle, oil-free cleanser
that has been dermatologically tested not to clog pores. If you
are prone to breakouts, try using a salicylic acid cleanser, it
will clear your face over time. Do not forget to remove your makeup
from the eyes with an oil-free makeup before you wash your face,
cleaning alone can not breakdown mascara and you end up with a dark
mess under your eyes in the morning . Wet your face and lather cleanser
in your hands before applying to the face.
It gets rid of dirt and makeup that cleaning leaves behind, it also
helps bring your skin back to its natural pH balance. Apply the
toner with a cotton ball or pour the toner on your hands and massage
over the face. Try toning with a low alcohol base, because alcohol
tends to be very dry on the skin. If you have extra dry skin use
a soothing toner with moisture based ingredients.
Hydrating: Try to always moisturizer after cleansing, even if you
have oily complexion. If your face is oily, try using a oil-free
moisturizer that will give your skin a matt-finish and help your
makeup go on smoothly. If you have normal skin or combination, try
to use an light moisturizer that will not clog pores. If you have
very dry skin, use a heavier moisturizer in the morning and at night.
Use a moisturizing cream that contains SPF 30 or more in the morning
to prevent pre-mature aging and protect if from the sun.
Exfoliating: Exfoliate at least once a week to remove dead skin
cells. If your skin is sensitive, do not exfoliate every night it
could irritate your skin and cause breakouts. If you are prone to
breakouts, use a mask twice a week to remove impurities. Take good
care of your skin and you will have the beautiful skin you deserve!
