The Basics of a Skin Care Routine

The Basic of a Skin Care Routine



Your skin is the most important part of your makeup look. It's the canvas to your painting. If you don't take care of it's you will regret it either now or later. It's also important to change up your skin care routine as you age or your skin change.

There are many different type of skin and what works for one person might not work for you. This is why I love making my own custom skin care routine! But if this is your first time in learning about skin the first thing you will want to do is asset your skin. See if there is any skin damage or natural aging to think about before embarking on this.

Firstly ask yourself the following question, to asset your skin

1. Do I have acne?
2. Oily skin or Dry, a mix of both.
3. Spots whether light or dark
4. Under eye circles?
5. Thinning Skin?
6. Scars?
7. Patchness?
8. What do I do to, or with my skin? (Like tan or wear makeup)
9. Other problems.

Parts in a normal skin routine

Makeup Removals
Baby Wipes, work great they are cheap and do safe for even a baby skin.
Some people also use olive oil or coconut oil to remove eye shadow. If you have acne prone skin, I don't recommend it.

Wash
This is the cleanser to your skin, removal oil, Bactria, and left over makeup. It can have medication.

If you have acne prone skin look for a cleanser with Salicylic Acid, it should be listed on the back of the product. It helps in fighting acne.

Forming Cleanser are great for dry skin.

Toner
Restores skin pH balance. A lot of people don't use toners.

Mask
a mash draws out impurities from the skin. Although, there are some masks that do more. Using a mask maybe 2 times a week, masks are not for everyday use.

They are better wipe of with a skin *damp wash cloth.

Treatments
Retinol
Rids the skin of dead skin and creates skin turn over, as well as collagen.
Start off with a low % and more up. Don't use everyday. Be careful, when use wrong it can damage the skin.

Zinc Oxide
Astringent removals excess oils. Reduces, inflammation and the appearance of zits.

Benzoyl Peroxide
Is a great Spot Treatment for acne.

Peptides
Helps fight wrinkles, by rebuilding collagen.

Serum
Made to go deep within the skin a good serum allow nutrient to help the skin.

Different serum have different vitamins, here are some of the more common ones.

-C
Producing Collagen and antioxidants.
-E
Helps fade scars, anti-aging, and and great for sun burns.

Moisturizer
Help seal in Moisturize. If you have dry skin, invest in a good one.

Night Creams
Great for preventing wrinkles, under eye circles or promoting collagen.

Chemical Peel
Not everyone needs a peels! They in my option are for damaged skin, from scarring or pigmentation problems.

Tools
Wash Cloth, use a new wash cloth every time.
Clarisonic Brush, this is great highly recommenced by dermatologist and YouTubers.
Exfoliate Tool, I use Modesa Facial cleansing Buff 3 times a week. (Plus, they only cost a dollar at the Family Dollar store, great right?)

Age and Skin care routine
When your are in your middle 20's, maybe even early start prepping for winkles. You want to stop them before they start. Peptides are great when it comes to helping wrinkles.

*Don't forget about your neck! And hands. Nothing show your age more than the neck and hands, because the are also easily forgotten.

Sensitive Skin
If you have sensitive skin you need to be careful of necessary chemicals and scents. Natural is better for Sensitive skin, also look for mild cleaners and don't uses hash exfoliation tools.

a little note, sometimes where you start a skincare routine, your skin breaks out. It can be a trail and error process to see if the product works for you. You could start off one product at a time or dive it. Another thing it could be is the impurity being drawl out of your skin. Give it a couple days, see if it starts clearing up before discarding a product.

If nothing else use this information and invest in a prepackaged system! Thanks.
