Maintaining clean and healthy skin can be a challenge. It can be difficult to know what exactly your skin needs considering everyone has different concerns. Whether you are dealing with acne, hyperpigmentation, scarring, or uneven skin tone, having just the right products in your skincare can help relieve you of all of these issues. If you have ever found yourself switching from cleanser to cleanser, you won’t have to worry about that anymore. We provide a list of all of the products you need to clean, moisturize, and maintain healthy skin!
The first and most important thing you need is a gentle face cleanser. If you have oily skin, you can find a face wash that is made to balance and regulate your oils. The face wash you choose should always be water-soluble. Also, be wary of the pH levels because basic levels will dry out your skin.
If you wear makeup, you must remove it before washing your face. It does your face no good to be washing it with a full face, mixing your facewash with your makeup. This can further clog pores. Micellar water is a great product to use to wipe your makeup off before washing your face.
A toner can also be used to remove makeup, but it is used more specifically to help set the skin and prepare it for other treatments or serums you plan to apply to your skin next. Think of it as a pre-serum or pre-moisturizer. These products are gentle but are also rather effective in helping the skin.
This is a substance that is naturally produced in the body, but when your skin gets too dry, you might need to find a bottle of it. This product is best applied to the eyes because it is gentle and will help this part of your face retain moisture. The eyelids and the skin surrounding the eyes can dry out easily, which is where hyaluronic acid can help.
Glycolic acid is considered an anti-aging product by many, but it can be used for people of all ages. This product helps with evening out the skin’s tone and texture. It can also be used to help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. This product helps with plumping and brightening the skin.
Moisturizer with SPF
As you go about your day, you want to make sure your skin is protected. After washing your face in the morning, it is highly recommended that you use a daily moisturizer with at least an SPF 15 in it to protect your skin from the sun. This can save your skin later on.
Retinoids are perfect for getting rid of dark spots, breakouts, and fine lines. Retinoids must be used lightly because they can irritate the skin. A small, pearl-sized amount of a retinoid is more than enough. These should be applied only at night because retinoids will break down in the sun.
At night, after washing your face, you will want to use a heavier, creamier moisturizer. This is so that the cream can sit on your face while you sleep and leave it feeling hydrated and moisturized when you wake up. Nourishing your skin while you sleep is just as important as how you nourish it during the day.
It is suggested to use a serum with antioxidants in it at night. Antioxidants typically have ingredients including vitamin C, algae extracts as well as naturally revitalizing ingredients such as rosemary and peppermint.
If your skin is dry, you might want to look at a chemical exfoliant. A chemical exfoliant is something to use only as needed because it can harm your skin if you are using it too much. These products will strip your skin of dead cells, leaving your skin feeling soft, new, and rejuvenated. It is best to use these exfoliants that are better than face scrubs because face scrubs can tear the skin.
