Sometimes simple changes or integrations into your skin care routine can significantly affect the look and feel of your skin. When you want to achieve better skin, three major factors can help you achieve significant benefits.
Improve Your Makeup Removal
If you wear makeup, you need to remove completely your makeup. Do your typical nighttime face routine to take off your makeup. Next, take a cotton pad with a little witch hazel or other mild astringent and use it to wipe your face. If you find there is makeup left on the pad, you are not doing enough to remove your makeup.
Use makeup removing wipes to remove most of your makeup. You may need a separate makeup removal product to remove eye makeup and some types of lip products. Many people find a face brush during cleaning is more effective at removing makeup. Make sure you focus on areas along your hairline, around your nose, and under your jawline. These areas are easily missed when removing your makeup.
Exfoliation is important to keep your skin looking its best. Since you are removing dead skin cells, this allows healthier, smoother, and more radiant skin to shine through. Additionally, your facial products, such as moisturizers and serums, will be more effective because they can penetrate your skin more easily. The amount of exfoliation you need will depend on your skin type and if you have additional skin concerns.
Start by exfoliating two or three times per week to see how your skin reacts. Some people benefit from using face brushes as a way of cleansing their face and doing a light exfoliation all at one. If your skin is sensitive, you should choose try face brushes with very soft bristles or use facial scrubs with small amounts of fine particles.
Serums are increasingly popular for a broad range of skin concerns. The benefit of serums is they are concentrated products and are designed to penetrate better the skin. No matter the serum you use, make sure you follow the packaging directions. Most serums are meant to be used at night, after your cleansing routine. Using them at night allows more time for the product to penetrate the skin before being washed off or otherwise wearing away.
A good skin care routine is essential to maintain good skin quality. Although there is no magical way to prevent any skin concern, a good skin care routine can help you keep your skin looking its best.
