Everyone’s skin is different, so getting that regimen that works for you will take some time. It’s all about trying new products like oils, cleansers, toners, face masks, etc. The hardest part isn’t finding the products, it’s actually just starting the process. So to start your skincare journey, we’ve created a list of different products to help get your skin in great condition. Here are some different products you should purchase and get on the patch to healthy skin.
1. Foaming Cleanser
If you have sensitive skin, foaming cleansers are a lot more gentle on the face than traditional cleansers. They don’t strip the skin of its natural oils and leave you feeling refreshed and clean.
Containing antioxidants and nutrients, toners do an extra swipe of cleansing but they also help balance the skin by bringing back the moisture that was lost with cleansing.
3. Micellar Water
If you don’t wear makeup, it’s not particularly necessary in your routine. Micellar water contains molecules that help attract impurities and lift them from the face.
4. Vitamin C Serum
This vitamin helps protect, strengthen and smooth skin. This is definitely one product that is needed in your skin regimen!
5. Skin Exfoliators
There are two options: you can go with an exfoliating cleanser or you can do a facial brush. You should only exfoliate twice every week, not every day. Here are two great options you should try out:
6. Oil Cleanser
For our folks with oily skin, we know the first thing you want to do is dry your face out but that’s the worst thing you can do. Stripping the oils from your face only prompts your face to create more oil. Using an oil-based will cleanse your face without leaving it feeling dry and tight.
7. Bio-Peel Gauze Pads
An alternative to exfoliating is bio-peel gauze pads. They help remove dead skin cells just like an exfoliating scrub does.
8. Hyaluronic Acid
The best time to fight aging is now, even if you’re in your 20s. The earlier you start, the better off your skin will be in the future. Hyaluronic acid helps keep your face moisturized and fresh. Use this before you add your moisturizer.
9. Face Masks
There soooo many different types of face masks that deal with different skin problems. So you need to identify the problem and go from there. But this Aztec Healing Clay Mask is a great place to start.
After you are done with ever don’t forget the most important step: MOISTURIZE! This should be a daily thing and should be done twice a day!
