Every day a new brand pops up with their line of skin-care products to help you deal with the most common problems like acne, pimples, skin-tone etc. But it gets kind of hard to decide that what are the actual products that you need and without which you can survive. Let’s go through the path of skin-care and discover which products are necessary for everyday use to keep your skin healthy and glowing and take you through the process.
Step 1. Cleanse
Cleansing oils become an important part of our lives and changed the way of taking care of your skin since its discovery, it is so simple yet effective. All you need to is cleanse the oil and follow with milk, water, foam or gel-based cleanser whatever is best suited for your skin. Double cleansing ensures complete removal of oil, dirt, bacteria that could have clogged in pores of skin.
We can’t lie, our life (and our skin) changed forever when we discovered double cleansing – our fave K-Beauty trick – it’s so simple, yet SO effective. All you do is cleanse with a cleansing oil and then follow with a milk, foam, water or gel-based cleanser, depending on your skin type. By double cleansing, you’ll ensure that all of the makeup residue is removed as well as any oil, dirt, or bacteria that’s clogging your pores. This will also allow your next skincare steps to absorb more easily and penetrate further into your skin. You only need to double cleanse in the evening or after wearing SPF and makeup, so you can skip the oil cleanse in the morning, and just use a water-based cleanser that suits your skin type, to start the day.
Step 2. Tone
Toning is the next essential step to everyday skin care routine. The most important thing it does it remove the leftover makeup residue and you will be amazed when you will use it as to how much makeup residue remains even when you remove it through simpler means, as well as chlorine and minerals in water. It depends on skin tone that either it is alkaline or acidic, if it is alkaline, take a slightly acidic toner. What it does is it reduces the amount of environmental impurities to penetrate into your pores. So, it is a must!
Step 3. Moisturize
Before we move any further, it is important to realize that moisturizing is important but finding the right moisturizer is even more important and there is no denying to the fact that it is one of the most important products on your shelf. The main function of moisturizer is to hydrate and restore your skin without making it look and feel greasy. People will oily skin think they do not need this at all whereas this is in reality counterproductive because your skin when dehydrated, it will pay off for the lack of moisture by producing more oil. Lastly, you need to moisturize in day as well as night.
Step 4. SPF for daytime
This is THE MOST IMPORTANT product of your daily skin care, like without it, your skin-care is incomplete, ask any dermatologist if you do not believe us. And we are rightfully lazy about it until we discovered that exposure to sun directly is proportional to skin aging because the powerful UVA and UVB rays can result in fine lines, aging, wrinkles, dark spots and even skin cancer!! This is really scary specially in areas where there is sunny mostly so wearing this skin-care product daily is crucial. Make sure to look for sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher with a 5-star UVA rating.
