How To Create Your Personal Skin Care Routine

One thing you need to remember first and foremost is that your skin care routine is personal and adapted to your body makeup and lifestyle. So if you plan to start your own personal skin care routine, know yourself and devise the best routine suited to you.

Step #1: Know Your Skin Type

There are 5 basic skin types.

1. Dry skin is flaky, rough or dull, less elastic, easily peels and irritated.
2. Oily skin is shiny and has big pores.
3. Combination skin is both oily and dry. The usual dry spots are the cheeks and the usual oily parts are the forehead, nose and chin.
4. Sensitive skin has a tendency to easily react to cosmetics and other skin care products. The skin stings, burns or itches.
5. Normal skin is a clear and balanced skin.

Assess your skin type and from here learn the best approach to take care of your skin, and what products are best to use and avoid. Take note that your skin type changes as you age. So if you have normal skin in your teenage years it is possible to have dry or oily skin ten years after.

Step #2: Get the Essentials

Keep your skin care products basic and simple. The bare essentials are enough for your daily routine. Keeping more than necessary will only clutter your dresser and eat up your time.

 

Step #3: Cleanse

You have to cleanse every day to remove excess oil, dirt, and makeup if you applied it. Choose a cleanser made of gentle solution and that is water-soluble. As a quick tip, refrain from scrubbing especially your face. Constant scrubbing irritates the skin. Pat to dry only.

 

Step #4: Use a Toner

RENEWTM also addresses multiple skin problems. Aside from eliminating acne scars, RENEWTM also reduces pigmentation, wrinkles, and photodamage in just 15 to 20 minutes.

 

Toners are used after cleansing. When you find the perfect toner for your skin type, it helps restore the pH balance, and inevitably promotes healthier skin to make you look younger and fresher. Regular toning will make skin feel smoother and softer.

Avoid using toners with alcohol and astringent ingredients. It causes skin thinning, irritation and redness. It also impairs the production of healthy collagen. Go for water-based formulas with antioxidants and mild substances.

Step #5: Exfoliate

Toners are used after cleansing. When you find the perfect toner for your skin type, it helps restore the pH balance, and inevitably promotes healthier skin to make you look younger and fresher. Regular toning will make skin feel smoother and softer.

Step #6: Moisturize

Moisturize every day, no matter what age you are, no matter what skin type you have. There are those with sunscreen and those especially formulated to be gentle on acne.

There really is no secret to having healthy and glowing skin. Just be diligent and lovingly follow your skin care routine.
