BASIC TIPS # 1: For Everyday

• Remove dead cells from the surface using a washcloth. No need to scrub, simply polish slightly.

1. Cleansing: Wash your face with a gentle cleanser once or twice daily, depending on your skin type. (If you have an oily skin, twice a day. If you have a dry skin, once a day.) You should never sleep with makeup on (but you already know that!).

2. Exfoliation: Exfoliation can make the difference between a skin that looks good and one that looks incredibly well. This will be much more important as we get older. Whether you2993a6e5b1f93317713aa0a7097ee0becc use a glycolic acid cream, a retinoid, or a simple scrub, the idea is to get rid of dead cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin. This not only makes your skin feel better but also allows the moisturizer to penetrate better. At night you have more time to exfoliate, do it several times a week after washing your face (less often if your skin is dry or sensitive).

3. Moisturizer: moisturizers contain emollients that are occlusion ingredients that seal the moisture in the skin, and humectants, which attract moisture. All skin types benefit from these creams, unless you have severe acne. If you need proof, look how silky and soft your skin looks and feels after the moisturizer sets. Your skin will benefit in using a products that are compatible with your skin type: dry skin likes heavy cream and oily skin needs an oil-free gel or lotion.
