To keep facial skin healthy, it is not enough to apply moisturizer when we feel that the skin is dry … And it is not enough to undergo facial treatments when we already see that there is no solution.
Ten rules to follow in our facial skin care routine to achieve healthy, young and radiant skin.
1. Be consistent
It is useless to take care of our skin only when we see that its appearance is not good. In skin care, prevention is key and consistency even more so.
2. Know what type of skin you have
Not all skins are the same and therefore there are so many types of products for their care. It is essential to know our skin to choose our perfect allies.
3. Cleanse your face twice a day
Cleaning the facial skin is essential for all other care to bear fruit. At a minimum, wash your face twice a day: once in the morning to remove toxins released during sleep and once at night to enhance the restorative function of sleep.
4. Choose your moisturizer with the help of a specialist
The moisturizer is a must. The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. Hydration is essential and, therefore, let yourself be advised by a specialist when making your choice.
5. Apply moisturizer twice a day
It is common to think that moisturizer should only be applied before bed, but it should also be done in the morning. It is recommended that the day cream be different from the night cream since, as we have seen in the previous point, the functioning of the skin is different.
6. Remove makeup well, but gently
It is obvious, but we will repeat ad nauseam. At night, remove make-up well so that the regeneration of the skin when falling asleep becomes effective. Of course, removing makeup well is not synonymous with doing it aggressively.
7. Take special care of the eye contour
The skin around the eyes is especially thin, sensitive and more prone to dehydration. Hydrate this area as much as you can.
8. Exfoliate your skin
As a general rule, we should exfoliate the skin twice a week. However, the frequency will change depending on your skin type: oily skin needs more exfoliation than dry skin.
9. Protect yourself from the sun
Now that summer is coming, this point is especially important. Even if it’s just to go to work, apply sunscreen and make sure that this cream is the last product you apply in your routine.
10. Get cosmetic treatments to enhance your routine care
Aesthetic treatments will help you keep your skin clean and perfect.
