If you have heard that you should take care of your skin and develop a healthy Skincare Routine, that is correct! It isn’t unusual to know you are supposed to do something, but not really understand why you need to do it. Without understanding the why, how can you be motivated to make that extra step when you are tired and really don’t feel like washing your face at the end of the day?
Our skin is our body’s largest organ and is the first thing that everyone sees when they look at you. Recently there has been a lot of talk about getting that “glowy” look. I’m here to share, you can’t get the look without putting in the work. There are three reasons why developing a skincare routine is imperative to healthy glowing skin with fewer wrinkles.
- Removing dead skin cells
- Preventing build-up of dirt & oils
- Treating & preventing wrinkles
Short term and long term results from a poor skin care routine should be enough to kick us into gear. There are so many products out there it can be confusing to understand what products we need for our skin type.
For me, I have combination skin, which is one of the most complicated, because you are all of the skin types in one! I will share what I have found to work the best for me, but if your skin airs on more of the oily or dry side you will most likely need a different skincare routine. For combination skin your regimen generally should include:
- Eye Serum
Over the years I have fine-tuned my routine to air more on the clean beauty side of things. This means that I try to use products that don’t have as many harsh chemicals. Here are my go to:
- Oil Cleanser: Currently using Green Clean
- I mask twice a week with more of an exfoliant than daily: I use Origin’s Original Skin Mask
- Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Serum
- Tata Harper’s Hydrant
- SPF: Goop
If you are unsure of your skin type you can always go into Sephora, Ulta or go talk to a local Aesthetician to get some insight on how to care for your skin.
