The Basics: Skin Care Routine for Healthy Skin
There are four basic steps when it comes to basic skin care routine. The steps include cleansing, exfoliating, toning and moisturizing. Cleansing is important to remove dirt and excess oil in the skin. These may clog the pores that will increase the likelihood of breakouts. Exfoliating, on the other hand removes the dead skin cells to prevent skin dullness. For toning, this step removes other impurities that were not removed by your cleanser. Last, but definitely not the least, is moisturizing. This is important to nourish the skin and prevent dryness.
These are all important to maintain healthy and radiant-looking skin. Although, other variations may also be used depending on what your skin needs.
Skin Care for People in their 20s
People in this age group are very prone to acne breakouts brought about by the fluctuations of hormones. When this happens, the sebaceous glands in the skin become more active making your skin oilier. Because of this, it is important to find a good cleanser that will wash away the skin’s excess oil. Wash your face twice a day to prevent oiliness. It is also important to protect your skin from sun damage by wearing sunscreen.
Skin Care for People in their 30s
For those who are in their 30’s, one thing to remember is that the skin cell turnover time will start to slow down. As a result, the skin may look duller than usual. It is therefore important to exfoliate at least once a week to remove the dead skin cells. In addition, fine lines and wrinkles may start to appear on the latter part of this age group. A good serum may help you with this problem. As always, sunscreen is very important.
Skin Care for People in their 40s
The effects of skin aging may become more pronounce once you reach your 40s. Because of this, you should also be more aggressive in fighting them off. The first thing you should do is to protect your skin from sun damage, which is one of the most common culprits of wrinkles and fine lines. It is also important to moisturize your skin to prevent dryness and dullness.
Skin Care for People in their 50s and up
By this time, you should be focused even more on your anti-aging efforts. Aside from this, you also need to address your pores, which may become more visible because of the loosening of the skin. The skin care routine is still the same when it comes to cleansing, exfoliating, toning and moisturizing. You just need to find good skin care products that will also help you on your anti-skin aging efforts.
Skin Care for Men
Men may not be so particular with their skin care routine compared to women, but this does not mean that they do not need to take care of their skin. Men should wash their face with cold water in the mornings and use liquid soap not bar soap for their face. They should moisturize daily and exfoliate once a week to ensure healthy and glowing skin.
Skin Care for Oily Skin
One of the most common skin care problems is oiliness. This results from the overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands. There are several steps you can take to help your oily skin including: use lukewarm water when you wash your face as this removes oil better than cold water does, use a soapy cleanser, a toner and a moisturizing serum instead of a cream based moisturizer. Using a clay mask once a week can also be effective.
