A skin care regimen is essential for healthy and flawless skin. If you follow a healthy skin care regimen, regularly and diligently, you can prevent a number of skin concerns and flaunt healthy flawless skin for a long time.
Here is a step by step guide for a simple and effective skin care regimen. Practice it twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.
Step 1 – Cleanse
Use a gentle cleanser that removes all traces of dirt, sebum, dead skin cells and make-up particles from within the skin pores and cleans your face thoroughly without leaving it dry and flaky. Cleansers keep the skin clean and therefore prevents acne breakouts as well. iS Clinical Cleansing complex by Innovative Skincare is great for resurfacing, deep cleaning and is anti-acneic. It is powerful but can be used on sensitive skin and does not leave the skin dry. It also contains antioxidants to fight free radicals.
Step 2 – Tone
Toners help remove last traces of makeup and residues that might be left behind by the cleanser. Moreover, it soothes the skin and also moisturizes it lightly. Also, it maintains the pH level of the skin. Look for toners that contain potent antioxidants and skin nourishing ingredients that help soothe the skin. Try using Skin Care Heaven Re-texturizing Toning Pads with 15 Percent Glycolic Acid.
Step 3 – Exfoliate
Exfoliation is an extremely important part of a skin care regimen. It helps to scrape off the accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface and makes a dramatic difference to the skin’s appearance, feel, and function. It removes the built-up layers of skin that aren’t shedding on their own due to sun damage, age, hormonal changes, chronic dry or oily skin, genetics or the use of poorly formulated skin care products. Use exfoliating products like scrubs that contain alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids as they tend to increase the collagen production within the skin cells and make the skin surface appear more smooth. Use Skin Care Heaven Anti-Aging Exfoliating Scrub. It gently removes dead skin cells and excess oil by delivering a soothing wave of heat, leaving the skin soft with a youthful glow.
Step 4 – Serums & Treatment Systems
Serums are generally rich in antioxidants that protect your skin against the harmful effects of environmental free radicals (caused as a result of sun damage and pollution etc.) Antioxidants nourish the skin and help delay the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps the skin to heal, create new collagen, produce healthier skin cells, and improve skin’s resilience. iS Clinical Poly-Vitamin Serum is a great choice.
Step 5 – Moisturize
Use a good moisturizer, one that suits your skin type, to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day and night. Women with dry skin should use a rich creamy formulation while women with oily skin should stick to something oil-free and lightweight. Also, remember to change your moisturizer with every season! Skin Care Heaven Anti-oxidant Oil-Free Moisturizer contains Green Tea Extract and Vitamins A, C and E which assist in minimizing sun damage and infuses antioxidants into the skin while soothing and moisturizing.
Step 6 – Protect against the Sun
Use a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects against the UVB as well as the UVA rays of the sun. use at least an SPF 15 sunscreen while venturing out. Also don’t forget to reapply your sunscreen after every couple of hours so that you can be assured of continued protection. Try La Roche Posay Anthelios SX, a non-greasy moisturizer and Sunscreen all in one.
