3 Simple Steps for an Effective Skin Care Regimen

Facial skin care should be an important part of your daily routine. Let’s talk about the 3 simple steps for an effective skin care regimen:

  • Cleansing
  • Toning
  • Moisturizing

Cleansing

Cleansing is an essential part of a facial skincare routine. Cleansing aids in removing dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris or pollutants you may have come into contact with throughout the day. Gently cleanse the skin in a circular motion outwards using a gentle cleanser and rinse with luke warm water. Pat your face dry with a clean wash towel (do not rub).  Cleansing should be done at least twice a day i.e. morning (as part of complete facial skin care routine) and evening (on a standalone basis).

Toning

While toning isn’t necessary, it’s proven to help those who combat oily or acne-prone skin.  It’s also beneficial to restore the pH balance post-cleanse. Toning helps remove traces of dirt, grime, and excess cleanser that may have been left behind. Not only is toning beneficial for pH balance it helps protect, moisturize, and refresh the skin.

Moisturizing

Moisturizing is the most crucial part of a facial skin care routine. Not only do moisturizers prevent your skin from getting dry they aide in protecting and preventing. In the short term hydrating makes the skin look healthy by smoothing rough and flaky skin, locking in moisture, and giving the skin a more plump appearance. Over time moisturizing allows the skin to operate at its peak performance when it comes to cell turnover. And of course in the long haul moisturizing is beneficial to combating premature aging.  That’s a win, win if you ask us!
