Sometimes it may seem like your skin is impossible to manage, especially when you wake up and find a huge zit on your nose or your skin is so dry that it’s visible. The good news is that there are ways to prevent and treat common skin conditions.
Wash your face twice every day (morning and night) with warm water and a mild soap made for your type of skin. Gently massage your face with circular motions. Do not scrub. Too much washing and scrubbing can cause skin to get irritated.
It's tempting, but you shouldn't. Popping them can push bad material further into the skin, leading to more redness and even worse. If you notice one coming, especially before an event you want to look your best for, use a natural cream that will relax the skin.
Avoid touching your face with your fingers or allowing other objects to touch it that can collect sebum and skin residue like your phone. Touching your face can spread bad material that can cause irritation, redness and zits. Wash your hands before touching your face.
Though the first step to building an effective new skincare routine is choosing awesome products, the second step is figuring out which one comes first, which is second and so on. In addition to providing the best results, using the right item at the right time will help maximize the wondrous effects of each product in your routine.
Serums, night creams, and other treatments may be luxurious, but fancy products won’t work their magic on a canvas that hasn’t been cleaned. From face washes to no-water-required cleansing waters, it’s easy to find just the right cleanser for your skin.
Exfoliating should be done once or twice weekly to tackle built-up dirt and oil. It will reduce dullness, and sweep away any unneeded skin cells (which promotes proper cell turnover). When using a scrub, focus on areas with blackheads or flakiness.
This step hold lots of skin-boosting benefits, including balancing the skin’s pH levels so your skin is in top shape to absorb serums and moisturizers. The toner helps restore the skin and provides the nourishment your complexion needs to look fresh.
Almost done. Smooth on a moisturizer or a night cream to give your skin a big gulp of water. Hydrated skin equals happy skin. Moisturizers are especially important for dry or sensitive skin, since dry skin can cause the oil glands to go into overdrive.
