Hello readers!! for a minute we got serious huh! Lets tone it down and get on to keeping a flawless skin. Everyone knows the key to looking flawless, is an unbeatable skincare routine, that keeps the skin nourished glowing forever!!
First off, you need to get your skin, i mean, understand your skin. know your skin, what trips your skin, what does it react to. You already know all the steps it takes to beat your face and slay all day, you need to do the same to achieve a flawless skin.
GET A FACE CLEANSER! Don’t tell me you still think the body soap you use wipes away all the dirt on your face, if you do, you are still living the Middle ages. There are various types of facial cleansers that help to rid the skin of the dirt-clogged pores and excess oil. Facial clenasers are available for all skin type sin the market, it is important that you use that which suits your face. The main rule is oily skin types are better with water-based products like The Ordinary’s Squalene Cleanser, Neutrogena’s Refreshing Face wash, LaRoche Posay’s Foaming Gel Cleanser amongst others. While, dry skin types are better with hydrating products like Cerave Hydrating cleanser, Neutrogena’s Hydro Bosst Gel Cleanser amongst others. You need to be sure of your skin type first before making your preference.
TONE THAT FACE! The goal of skin care is to balance the natural complexion of the face. You can see them as nutrients that enhances the performance of other skin products to be applied on the face. It should be applied after cleansing and before putting anything else on your face. I highly recommend The Ordinary’s Glycolic Acid,but this should be used alongside a face moisturiser. Hylauronic acid and Rose Water are perfect for all skin types.
GET YOURSELF A SERUM!! Serums are the skins best allies when it comes to skincare routine. Those bottles are the magic wands for a flawless skin! They help to manage several skin issues, from dark spots to wrinkles. Its considered optional but an anti-oxidant serum is highly recommended to protect the skin from daily exposure.
LAYER THAT MOISTURISER!! This step keys in all nutrients previously applied on the skin. It softens and hydrates your skin,while protecting the facial oils on the skin. Doctors recommend the use of mositurisers all year round
DON’T FORGET SUNSCREEN!! Sunscreen is your skin’s best friend no matter the weather you are in. Its not limited to summer girls, bin that myth. The UV rays are very much present, don’t be caught unfresh. Neutrogena skincare products carry high SPF and is very suitable.
