THE ULTIMATE SKIN CARE GUIDE


Proper skin care is more important than some people realize. Regardless of your age, skin type, or your tone of skin, it is vital that you take good care of your skin as you do the rest of your body. Below offers informative details about various types of skin and the routines you can do in order to keep your skin looking vibrant and feeling healthy.

Normal Skin

Normal Skin

So, say you already have relatively good skin. This means that there is a wonderful balance between dry and oily, and you rarely experience any kind of breakouts, reactions, or blemishes. Even your pores are hardly noticeable. Nevertheless, you still must maintain that balance to keep a youthful glow.

Cleanse

Since your skin already appears normal, it is better that you focus on gentle daily cleanses. Something with a mild amount of retinol in it can help with collagen levels.

Also consider a scrub twice a week to exfoliate your skin. This will help with the debris on the surface of your skin without stripping it completely of its natural oils. Find one that rubs in with ease thanks to a good amount of enzymes so that you are not forced to aggressively scrub your skin, something that can cause irritation.

Another easy skin care routine you can do for normal skin is using basic cleansing wipes. These are useful when you’re on-the-go and don’t have time for a full cleanse. Your skin will still appear healthy and refreshed.

Moisturize

Since your skin is normal, you don’t require anything too heavy. Something that is lightweight will absorb well on your skin. Keep a lookout for those with antioxidants that not only can help fight off aging, but can also do away with free-radicals.

Another important feature is finding a moisturizer that has a good amount of sunscreen protection for morning use, and also having another moisturizer without SPF for evening use. If you want to use your evening cream as a part of your morning routine as well, just remember to apply it prior to using your SPF cream.

Oily Skin

Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, you usually have medium to large-sized pores and tend to notice shiny skin right after washing your face. This happens frequently to those that have overactive oil glands, and this can lead to you dealing with more breakouts and finding frequent blackheads. The routine below can help you combat that oily skin for the better.

Cleanse

Due to oily skin causing blackheads and frequent breakouts, you need a cleanser that can go deep enough to handle the problem. Something that is gel-like can help loosen up the root of the issue by penetrating deep enough into the pores. A product with alpha hydroxy acids or salicylic acid can help exfoliate, unclog pores, and reduce the production of oil.

Add a scrub into your skin routine as well, and since it is oily, two to three times a week is a good amount of times to use a scrub. Find a scrub with a dual-action formula so that you don’t have to rub too hard, and also find one with enzymes that will lift the debris from your pores.

An exfoliating mask is another good idea to help cleanse oily skin. One with enzymes can help not just with the pores, but with removing dead skin cells. This can be used two to four times a week to help fight off blackheads.

Moisturize

Oily skin does best with lightweight moisturizers that keep the skin hydrated just enough. Something that is high in antioxidants like Vitamin C can help reduce the damage done by free-radicals. Also, a moisturizer that has amino acids and other nutrients keeps the skin nourished without overwhelming it. Be sure that it is oil-free and contains some sunscreen for protection during the day.

Dry Skin

Dry Skin

When it comes to dry skin, your skin’s barrier layer isn’t retaining moisture and water the way it should. This leads to flakiness and redness. Proper moisturizing is more than beneficial when it comes to fighting off dryness, but you cannot forget about the cleansing as well.

Cleanse

Try to avoid cleansers with foam as they can strip away much-needed lipids. Opt for the cleansers that are gel or cream-like instead. A cleanser that is high in healthy ingredients such as antioxidants, ceramides, and Vitamin E provides good oil to the skin that will protect and nourish. Look for something that acts as a hydrator as well such as kelp extract.

It is recommended to put on a hydrating facial mask two to four times a week as well. Search for products that contain ingredients like bromelain. It is a protein-digesting enzyme that can help break down the dead skin cells on the surface, which can fight off the issue with flakiness that so many with dry skin experience.

Moisturize

Dry skin requires a right moisturizer that hydrates and allows your skin to not just absorb, but to keep that hydration all day long. Find one that absorbs easily without leaving behind an oily residue. Products with amino acids such as histidine and glycine can help restore your skin to a healthier glow.

You can also add in a serum to your moisturizing routine, something that contains antioxidants that will hydrate your skin. Products that have emollient ingredients will help lock in that moisture. Serums work best when used as a layer underneath your usual moisturizer.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive Skin

For those of you with sensitive skin, it can seem like an endless and trying task to find products that won’t cause irritation in the likes of breakouts, redness, dryness, and other aggravations. Seeking out gentle cleansers and moisturizers will be more advantage to you in your long-term skin care routine.

Cleanse

Products with healthy oils such as soybean oil are high in antioxidants in addition to Vitamin E, which will better nourish your skin without aggravating it. It would be beneficial to find a mild exfoliator that is unscented. Products that are scented can cause irritation for your already sensitive skin.

If you need something even lighter, cleansing facial wipes can help clean your skin without irritation. Products that have ingredients such as Aloe Vera can contain anti-inflammatory properties, which is useful if you frequently experience itchiness or redness. Extracts such as green tea also help with anti-inflammatory properties in addition to smoothing out skin.

For those interested in doing a scrub, find gentle ones with ingredients found in your cleanser. Limit yourself to using it perhaps once a week.

Moisturizer

Moisturizing sensitive skin doesn’t have to be difficult anymore. Search for products with similar ingredients to your cleanser. For instance, moisturizers with green tea contain antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties to protect your skin from oil and bacteria while still hydrating it. Extracts such as plankton and even licorice-root can further calm down the skin.

Combination Skin

Combination Skin

Those of you with combination skin may have one of the most stressful tasks of balancing between different skin types. Whether you have normal skin in one place and dry skin in the other place, or you bounce around from oily to dry, there are a good number of products available to help.

Cleanse

A gel-like cleanser may be your best bet here. It is both refreshing and easy to rub in. The best products for your combination skin are ones that offer numerous of benefits. For instance, those with ingredients such as salicylic acid that offers anti-inflammatory properties, which is useful if you occasionally have irritated skin. Products with that type of ingredient also aid in reducing oil production and unclogging pores.

Search also for cleansers geared toward sensitive skin as they offer various healthy oils like grapefruit peel oil that is gentle enough to not disrupt the balance you’re trying to achieve. It can further benefit you to use two different types of cleansers, saving one for the morning and the other at nighttime. This way, you are able to address your different skin types throughout the day.

As for scrubs and masks, seek products that have useful enzymes such as papaya that can breakdown and remove dead skin cells. They also help free up those pores and grant you a smoother, even skin tone. Scrubs and masks are best used for your combination skin type two to three times a week.

Moisturizer

A great moisturizer to help with combination skin is light in weight and features useful ingredients like green tea extract. Products such as these can leave your skin with a more subtle glow, and with frequent use, can improve the appearance of aging. Search for moisturizers that focus on antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties to calm troubled skin and cut down bacteria production.

Combination skin also does rather well with various serums. Find some with peptides that stimulate collagen production. Products with Vitamin E and C will help your skin better absorb these beneficial ingredients.

For Men

Just because you’re a guy, that doesn’t mean your skin care routine has to be that different from women. You just have to account for facial hair and razor burn. Other than that, there are many similar products that you, as a man, can use to keep your skin healthy.

Cleanse

If you find yourself prone to razor burn, then consider looking for sensitive skin cleansers that are loaded with oils to properly nourish your skin cells. Products such as these offers a gentle exfoliate process that shouldn’t intervene with your shaving routine.

You can consider scrubs and masks as well at least two times a week. It is necessary to breakdown all that buildup of debris that your skin sees throughout the week. A gentle scrub with enzymes can lift debris from your pores, removing blackheads and leaving your skin with a faint, yet healthier, glow. If scrubs usually irritate you, then find ones that are gel-like with microbeads as they offer a relaxing, soothing experience.

If you’re a man that barely has time to shave let alone properly cleanse, then there is no issue with using cleansing towels. Just look for the types with extracts like cucumber fruit that can soothe your skin. You can even throw these towels in your gym bag for a quick wipe down after a workout that leaves your skin free of dead cells and revitalized.

Moisturizer

Whether you need something lightweight or a little more help if you have dry skin, moisturizing is important after cleansing. Products that are silky won’t leave behind an odd residue, and they’re easier to rub in. Find ones that are advertised toward all skin types and ones that have plenty of nutrients and vitamins to restore your skin and fight off damage from free-radicals.

You can even use serums in between your cleansing and moisturizing. If you’re having problems with dead skin, find products with acids like glycolic acid that loosen the dead cells on the top layer of your skin.
