We all want to look the best we can. If we had the ability to choose to have flawless, beautiful and glowing skin then we would. It’s an easy choice. Making the decision to implement a good skin care routine is certainly one way of ensuring that this is achievable.
What is a great skin care routine? Do you have a standard size that will work for all ?… Unfortunately no. All of us have distinct skin types and each skin type will require its specific, personal care. So the question is NAD + Face Serumwhat do I know which products are best for me?
No matter if you suffer from oily, dry or combination sensitive or acne-prone skin, we’ll try to provide a basic and easy to follow step-by-step guide for starting your journey through the complicated world of skincare products.
Any effective skincare routine must be a combination of cleanser, followed by a toner, then a serum , and finally a moisturiser.
The cleanser you pick should be one that meets the needs of your skin. For oily/combination/acne prone skin a good place to start would be a gel cleanser or something like Elizabeth’s Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser for combination skin to ensure that not too much oil is added. If you have dry skin, something like an oil cleanser might be the best choice for you. StriVectin Comforting cream cleanser would be perfect for this.
In the next step, we suggest a toner. There are three major categories for choosing a toner. If you are suffering from dry skin, a toner with a low alcohol content would be the ideal choice. Alcohol can cause dryness to your skin so keep it off when you can. Lancome Tonique Confort Hydrating Toner would be something that we would recommend to you for this. If you have oily skin then you may need to select a toner which also exfoliates. This is because of the greater chance of oil getting trapped within your pores and creating breakouts. If you suffer from mixed skin, it’s a bit of an individual choice, but you can use either type of cleanser but again, try to be cautious with products that contains alcohol, particularly if it is a high concentration.
Following is the serum. People may ask if it is important to use the serum and moisturiser… and if you want the best results , then it’s. The purpose of a serum is to provide skin with deeper reaching benefits than a moisturiser can. They penetrate deep to the epidermis and supply an intense boost of nourishment for your skin. The many types of serums include exfoliating serums, brightening serums, anti ageing serums, moisturizing serums and firming products. Depending on what you hope to achieve and your skin’s needs are will most likely determine what you will choose.
Finally, moisturisers. There are countless different moisturisers out there but to make it easier, we’ve grouped them into three main categories. Humectants (humectants), Emollients (em. In a nutshell humectants are designed for people with dry skin primarily and help to keep water in to nourish the epidermis (the top layer of skin). They do this by drawing in water from the air around them and then drawing water upwards from within the dermis (the layer beneath it, the epidermis) to moisturise the surface skin layers. They’re also great for those with oily skin, but want to moisturize, as they don’t increase the amount of oil in your skin. Emollients are great because they mimic the effects of the natural oils that are found in the skin. They also can help decrease the volume of loss of fluid (we all lose an indeterminate daily amount of water partly through the spaces between pores) by filling the spaces between skin cells. In the last category is the Occlusives. These are designed for extremely dry skin, or for those with eczema-related conditions. They form a physical barrier in between your skin and surroundings, securing moisture and shielding you from further loss. They’re surprisingly dense when compared to other moisturisers.
