It’s 8pm and it’s been a long day. Morning meetings, yoga during lunch, noon meetings, peak hour traffic home and now you’re finally home. The first thing any sane person would do, is kick off their shoes and just crash into bed. There is one problem with this though – your face would look like a car wreck the morning after because you forgot about your healthy skin care routine!
The importance of a daily skin care routine First, it is only THE largest organ and yet we somehow seem to have a flippant attitude towards giving our skin as much care and attention as it deserves.
Second, our skin works 24/7 to protect our bodies from harsh weather, UV rays, and a host of other unpleasant sensations, so setting aside a few minutes each day to tend to our skin seems a small price to pay.
Third, beautiful skin is a lifelong process. A healthy and beautiful skin takes work and daily maintenance. It also helps to identify and prevent potential skin problems.
Types of skin care routine The 10-step Korean skincare routine anyone? It’s all the rage now, and there is something to be said about Korean women and their flawless, perfect skin. Or you’re likely to know people, who washes their face with a simple facial cleanser and their skin looks like a baby’s bottom.
Different skin types requires different skin care routine. Once identified, that’s when you learn what’s good and bad for your skin.
The basics: Getting started
Cleanse Water and a washcloth is going to cut it. Unless you’re living in a vacuum, you’re not safe from bacteria. Using a gentle, water-soluble cleanser twice a day removes debris, oil, and makeup. Keeping skin hydrated, keeps pores clear and reduces the chances of breakouts or a dull complexion
Exfoliate The supplest skin is free from dead skin so gently scrub them off. It’s tedious to do this every night so focus on the problem areas – visible pores and blackheads
Toner Ditch your full-of-alcohol toner and tighten those pores with skin-replenishing ingredients hydrate, refresh, and revitalize the skin’s surface immediately after cleansing. This is your preparation for maximum absorption of what’s coming next.
Taking it a few steps further: long term investment
Now say this out loud – Replenish, rehydrate and regenerate. Your new mantra for 2017. Something so simple yet easily skipped. Moisturizers improve skin’s appearance, helping to keep it feeling smooth, plumped and soft.
