Skin Care Tips: One of the main things people ask me is, what are the steps when applying skincare.
1. First it's important to cleanse the skin, and sometimes our skin requires a double cleanse. ex. makeup can be hard to get off initially.
2.Following your facial cleanser, a face toner is a quick, absorbing liquid that helps to remove excess dirt, traces of oil and makeup, correct and balance the pH of your skin, and helps control acne.
3. Next apply a serum. Serums ,should be applied twice daily. They are the first products that should be applied to the skin after cleansing and toning. When layered underneath moisturizers, serums act as targeted treatment for wrinkles, pigmentation and redness,
4. Moisturize, You want to use a moisturizer for your skin type. If your skin is dry you may want a moisturizer that is thicker and more hydrating. Oily skin you will want to use a moisturizer that is thinner in consistency and non-comedogenic, non-clogging.
5. Sunscreen, whether you will be in the sun all day or not. You will want to use a sunscreen daily.
This will help prevent wrinkles and prevent sunburn. Sometimes we don't realize we can still be effected by sun even if it doesn't appear to be sunny out. Even if you are just driving or riding in a car, your skin can still be effected from the rays coming into the window. What to look for in Sunscreens. Look For Broad Spectrum, Zinc Oxide, Titanium or Zinc for Sensitive skin, Choose SPF Above 30, Water Resistant if going in the water.
My favorite is the Brand Glo, its light weight, you can get in plain or with a tint for your skin type.
