When it comes to cleansing your skin it’s always best to go with a mild cleanser unless directed otherwise by a dermatologist or your doctor. It’s important to pick a cleanser that works with your skin type such as normal, oily, combination, and so on so forth.
Cleansing twice daily is extremely important when it comes to the care of your skin. As you sleep your skin repairs itself known as cell turnover. Where your skin produces new skin cells traveling from the lowest epidermis to the top, shedding the dead skin cells off. When you fail to cleanse the skin prior to bed or in the morning when you wake you are not allowing your skin to breathe and get the full effects of this cell turnover thus resulting in break outs, lackluster appearance, bags under the eyes, and much more.
You are never too young to invest in a good eye cream. Eye creams serve many benefits and purpose for protecting, rejuvenating, and moisturizing such delicate skin.
Need I say more? Sunscreen every day is the one part in your skin care routine you should never miss. All exposed areas of the skin should be protected especially your face. This helps with skin cancer prevention, dark spots, and aging. You can never be too careful. Be sure to find a good sunscreen that works for you. There are many moisturizers and cosmetics in stores that have a SPF with broad spectrum protection which is important. Just because the sun isn’t shining doesn’t mean those harmful rays aren’t going to reach your skin.
This relates back to the cleansing twice daily. Completely remove your cosmetics every night no matter what. Just think about how much you’ve touched your face throughout the day or your phone to your face. There is so much potential to transfer bacteria it’s important to cleanse your skin putting yourself at less risk for clogged pores, acne prone skin, and premature aging. Crunched for time? Super exhausted? Keep facial cleansing/cosmetic removing wipes by the bed so you never have to worry.
Water is truly amazing when it comes to the care of your skin and really your overall health in general. It is essential to stay hydrated in order to promote healthy cell turnover. While drinking water isn’t a cure all for dry skin and staying moisturized, it sure helps in the process. So stay hydrated but don’t forget to pamper your skin with a good daily moisturizer.
Go ahead say it, “I need my beauty rest”. Feels good doesn’t it? It’s important to get an adequate amount of sleep every night. As I state on the cleansing twice daily point, the night time is prime time for your skin when it comes to cell turnover and repairing itself. If you are not getting a full nights rest then you are depriving your skin of some much needed repair time. When you don’t get enough sleep it shows on your skin.

Exfoliation is a wonderful thing when it comes to your skin. It’s very important to take in the type of skin you have and your current skin situation when introducing exfoliation as you don’t want to irritate the skin and cause further problems.
