What Is The Best Skin Care Routine?

  • Sharebar



This was another questions answer:
Healthier skin is dependant on a balanced diet, hydration, adequate physical exercise, protection from the sun and a daily skin care regimen. You can follow four easy steps to improve your skin’s health.
Step One — Cleanse. Cleansing you skin and removing dirt, makeup and other impurities that clog your skin is essential. You should cleanse your skin at least twice a day with a mild, non-irritating cleanser. Your cleanser should not strip your skin of its natural oils and it should easily rinse away.
Step Two — Tone. Using a toner rehydrates, cools, nourishes and refreshes your skin. Toners remove any remaining traces of dirt, makeup or oil you cleanser may have not removed. It’s good to use a toner that is alcohol-free, as alcohol may dry your skin.
Step Three — Exfoliate. Exfoliants help remove dead cells that accumulate on the surface of your skin. Make sure the exfoliant is not granular so you do not damage new skin. Exfoliants with alpha or beta hydroxy acids improve the skin’s rejuvenation process, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles.
Step Four — Moisturize. Just as the rest of you body requires hydration and nutrients, so does your skin. Your skin should be treated with a daytime moisturizer that provides a broad spectrum sunscreen daily. At night, using a more intense moisturizer helps to rebalance and normalize your skin as you sleep.
These four basic steps can firm and restore your skin’s natural suppleness. Each step is also beneficial for any skin type. You can choose products that are specific to your skin’s special needs to achieve healthier skin :)

  3. personally, i wouldn’t use all those steps. that is overworking your skin, and could maybe cause damage. if your skin is oily, dont use a moisturizer. keep your face as dry as possible, well, only the oily part. for the dry part, maybe use a lightwieght moisturizer. if u dont have acne, which i dont know if u do, dont ever use an acne product. it is not meant for your skin. use an oil-free cleanser, nothing special, and dont use an exfoliator, they dry out your skin. maybe that is why your cheeks are dry. toners also tend to be harsh on the skin, so i would skip that step too. whatever u use, i would make sure it is oil free. but if a product is making your skin dry, drop it now. this will just make your skin produce more oil to compensate. find a product that is right for u, experiment and sample. ther r sooooo many types of products, so just make sure that product is made for your skin type. good luck!
