If you don’t have a skincare routine, now is the time to start. By opting for chemical free and gentle skincare products, you can help to rid your skin of impurities and encourage healthy new skin to grow. With these four products, you can start to get the skin that you’ve always wanted.
If you’re a fan of the all-in-one bar soap method of using the same bar of soap to wash your body, face, and hair with, it’s time to pick up a new habit. Formulated with your face in mind, cleansers are designed to not only clean your skin but help preserve some of the skin’s natural oils, so that you won’t breakout. When looking for a facial cleanser, look for a mild formula that won’t cause your skin to breakout.
Sunscreen isn’t just for the beach— in fact, it should be worn every day. If you’re going to spend money on one skincare product, it should be your sunscreen. As the only layer of protection that is going to prevent your skin from getting any further damage, sunscreen is virtually a skin saver. Look for a sunscreen that is packed with zinc oxide, which will help to not only protect your skin from UVB rays but UVA rays as well.
When applying sunscreen, make sure that you get a thick white layer all across your skin and then slowly rub it in— this will help to ensure that you’re getting the best coverage.
Keeping your skin moisturized will help it to not only retain moisture but it will also prevent you from getting wrinkles. The dryer your skin is, the more likely it is to crack, which causes your skin to gradually wrinkle over time. When looking for a facial moisturizer, make sure that it’s specifically designed for your face, because a lot of body lotions will only break you out. After you cleanse your face— both morning and night— apply a pea sized portion of moisturizer on your skin and slowly work it around your T-zone and cheeks, avoiding your eyes.
It might seem like a frivolous purchase to make, but scrubs are another one of the skincare must-haves for everyone. Scrubs help to open up your pores and clear up any blemishes that may be causing you to breakout. Simply use the scrub 2-3 times per week when in the shower and focus on breakout prone areas like your forehead, chin, and nose.
From getting a good cleanser to wearing sunscreen every day, these four things are skincare products that everyone should have.
