Beauty products are big business and there is an ever increasing variety in the shops or online. With so many companies selling a variety of beauty products, how do you know what’s right for you or what you need to look for?
There are beauty products of all different types of skin. Find out your skin type, Normal, Dry or Combination and then choose the products for that skin type. Beauty products are applied in a certain order, particularly where skincare is concerned.
For instance, step 1 is always to cleanse. Rejuvenate your skin by clearing away the dirt, debris, or extra oils that accumulate on the dermis, the skin. There are different cleansers on the market and each affects your skin in a different way. Lotion cleansers are generally better for people with dry or sensitive skin. Foaming cleansers work with oily or combination skin. Use cleansers sparingly as some product can have an over drying effect, stripping your skin of its natural oils. Gel cleansers don’t lather much, but they work well on oily, combination or sensitive skin.
After cleansing you skin you should use a toner. Toners are designed to restore the PH Balance of the skin. Strong cleansers may strip away too much oil, toners replenish the critical vitamins your skin needs for a healthy glow. You can simply apply the toner with a cotton ball to your face and neck. Whichever brand of toner you use make sure you get one that does not contain alcohol, as this can dry and irritate the skin.
After clearing pores and restoring the PH Balance, then apply any serum, or whatever you are using to correct existing problems. Serums are specifically designed to solve skin problems from acne, redness, and general irritation. If you are taking proper care of your skin then you probably don’t need correctors. In the majority of cases this step is just a temporary one.
After you treat your skin, you’re going to want to protect it with a Guardian. A skin Guardian is a type of beauty product that creates a type of bubble around your skin. It works great to protect against smoke or even second-hand smoke if you’re going to be in that kind of atmosphere. A guardian will smooth your skin and preserve its radiance.
The next beauty product you need is a good moisturizer with SPF or sun protection factor. Most companies combine sun protection with moisturizers these days. Moisturizing is important for everyone because moisturized skin is more resistant to damage caused by the sun or by harsh weather conditions.
A Good Routine
Some people’s skin can handle more beauty products on it than others. If you like the products that you’re using and you’re following all of these steps; try cutting back on the number of steps. Try dropping a serum or guardian for a few weeks. Then see how your skin reacts to fewer products on your face. There is a tendency for us to underestimate the power of our skin to rejuvenate itself – sometimes a rest is good.
