Skincare is one of the most–if not the most–important part of any beauty routine. Of course, beauty always start from the inside out, so make sure that you drink six to eight glasses of water daily. Also, use an SPF high enough for your skin type, weather you’ll be exposed to the sun or not-eat a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables–and don’t forget to get your beauty sleep!
Oily/Acne Prone Skin
For those with oily and acne prone skin, things can get a little tough.Make sure you use a lightweight cleanser and an oil-free, water-based moisturizer. Toner is a very important part of your routine as well- make sure you apply it especially on the T-zone.
Dry skin is affected by the climate, so make sure that you always moisturize. Start off by washing the face with a soap-free emollient cleanser and use a creamy moisturizer during the day and at night. Make sure you don’t scrub your face too hard-use gentle motions as to not irritate the parched skin.
Be sure to use unscented, hypoallergenic products on your face, as your skin is very susceptible to infections, redness and inflammation. Be careful in extreme climate changes and with spicy food especially. Avoid using hot water when cleansing. Use at least an SPF 30 on both your face and your body.
Combination skin deals with both dry and oily skin. The oily part is usually around the T-zone so make sure you use a good toner around that area. Moisturizer the rest of your skin with a rich cream.
Because mature skin is very sensitive, wash with a cream cleanser that tissues off instead of rinsing with water. Try products with active ingredients such as vitamins and minerals. If you need to, use a whitening product to even out skin tone.
