For a better health of the skin it is important to have a good skin regimen and here I have listed 5 main steps in the skin care that suit every skin type, every age, unless you are an infant. Keep reading to know more about what changes you need to make in your skin care regimen.
Cleansing the first and very most important step of a beauty regimen. Cleansing removes dirt and debris from the skin. Cleansing kills the bacteria on the skin that breed on the cellular debris and excess oil production in the follicles resulting in acne. A good cleanser will maintain the pH of the skin, Kill bacteria and cleanse of all the debris and excess oil production without stripping the skin’s natural oils. Excessively drying cleansers strip the skin’s natural oils more than necessary and these oils when in the right amount protect the skin from harmful external environment.
Exfoliation is important to remove the dead skin cells that sit on top of the skin and make it look dull and grey, as the skin cells may not shed as effectively on its own. Exfoliation of the top layers of dead skin cells send messages to the lower layers to produce more healthy skin cells. Exfoliation can be performed from daily to thrice a week depending on the strength and coarseness of the product. Exfoliation in your regimen will make the skin look more plump and healthy, giving a natural glow.
Serum: Basically these are the concentrated forms of a particular ingredient or a combination, unlike the very less percentage in a moisturiser. Serums are the liquid elixir that our skin requires. Serums come in many different forms for different skin types and conditions. Serums are the treating factor in the skin care regimen. With all different types of serums available on the market such as vitamins, AHAs, natural ingredients choose the ones with a good percentage of active ingredient and your skin will thank you for it.
Moisturise: Dry or Oily, Old or young, moisturisers are the thirst relievers of the skin. If you have an oily skin it does not mean your skin doesn’t require moisturisers, Oily skin can still be dehydrated. Always moisturise the skin. Good moisturisers for Oily skin type have more water content in them hence water based moisturisers. Dry skin types lack oil hence the most suitable option is an oil based moisturiser. A well moisturised skin always appears healthy and radiant
Sunscreens provide the skin with protection against the sun & heat. Sun damage is the biggest factor in ageing. Protection from the sun is necessary no matter what skin type it is. Sun also increases the melanin production of the skin hence tanning the skin and an increase if the skin suffers from freckles, melanoma or other hyper-pigmentation problems.
