What Should Your Skin Care Regimen Consist Of?
Now a more advanced regimen would consist of the following:
1. Cleanser: It removes surface dirt and impurities.
2. Toner: Refreshes skin, removes excess oil and product that your cleanser didn't remove (don't use at night).
3. Treatment product(s): Includes serums, eye creams, spot treatments, masques/masks, etc.
4. Moisturizer: Hydrates your skin.
I know that sounds like a lot. If you're lazy or cheap (haha) start with a basic regimen consisting of a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. All products should be used in the order listed above.
Here are few things you should keep in mind when looking for skin care products:
+ For sensitive skin use hypoallergenic and fragrance-free products. Usually anything containing less than 10 ingredients.
+ Normal/dry/dehydrated skin types should use a cream facial cleanser. Oily skin types should use a gel cleanser.
+ Have dry skin? Avoid using products that contain alcohol, it will cause your skin to become tight and dry.
Hope that helps!
