Skin Care 101 is simply routine. So, what does that routine look like? Let’s dig in.
Routine Is King
Routine is king. Good skin is really about taking care of it on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. It sounds simple, and it is if you are willing to do the work.
Every day, twice a day – once in the morning and again in the evening, follow a four-step process.
- Cleanse. Cleansing is a vital part of your skin care routine. Makeup, dirt, and oils that accumulate on the skin’s surface can clog the pores and cause everything from acne to dry patches. Cleanse morning and evening before toning.
- Tone. Toning only removes any unwanted dirt and oil that cleansing may have missed but it also hydrates, tightens, and balances to prep the skin for serums and moisturizers. Tone morning and evening after cleansing.
- Treat. Treatments are like superfood for your skin. Because serums contain smaller particles, they penetrate the epidermis on a deeper cellular level, working faster and more effectively. What’s your skin craving this moment. What are your biggest concerns with your skin? Deep wrinkles and lines and sagging skin?Age spots and skin discoloration? Crow’s-feet and sagging skin around your eyes? Fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes? Dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles around eyes? Loss of firmness and sagging skins? Treat those concerns twice daily after toning.
- Moisturize. Regular moisturization can keep skin young by slowing the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Moisturizing helps to plump your skin and give it a healthy glow. Proper balances the skin better health, diminishing the occurrence of rough patches and blemishes. Moisturize twice daily after treating your skin. Remember to use a daytime moisturizer with sun protection in it.
So, What About Weekly and Monthly?
So, what do you with your skin weekly? Two to three times a week, use a mask to help detoxify on a deeper level than cleansing and toning alone. A mask also adds an extra dose of nourishment for skin that glows with good health.
What should you do with your skin monthly? Believe it or not, a monthly visit to the spa can help your skin. A professional facial can help treat and eliminate some of those skin concerns. Also, get professional references before booking an appointment for a spa facial.
