Cleanse, tone and moisturize daily. This is what all us ladies should do to maintain a healthy complexion. In addition to the 3 basic steps mentioned, this article will discuss 5 things you should be doing on a daily basis for healthy skin.
You want to cleanse your face daily to get rid of bacteria, dirt, oil, and makeup. The type of cleanser you choose will depend on your skin type. The main skin types are normal, dry, oily, and combination. There are foam cleansers, as well as gel and milk cleansers on the market. Biotherm Products have many types of cleansers to choose from that cater to all skin types.
Exfoliating is important because it helps to remove dead skin, which if not removed, will cause breakouts, acne, and many problems. This should be done at least once a week, but no more than twice a week, as it can be very drying to the skin.
Many people feel that cleansers do a good enough job at removing dirt, oil and makeup, but research has shown that one of the most important benefits of toning the skin is that it helps to bring the PH levels (acidic and alkaline)back to neutral which should be around 7. You want your skin to be in the middle of the two.
Toning also helps remove make up, preps skin for moisturizer and acts as a detox.
In order for your skin to stay hydrated, you will need to moisturize daily, especially in the winter months, as the skin will lose lots of moisture during the cold. You should select a moisturizer based on your skin type in order for it to work properly, and to prevent issues with the skin. You can find moisturizers shopping online, in department stores, or in drug stores.
Here’s a breakdown of the skin types, and the best moisturizes to use with each type.
Normal-This is the easiest skin type to care for and using an ointment is good enough.
Oily-This skin type works best with lotions as opposed to creams
Dry-Creams are the top choice for dry skin. This is because of the oil content in them which makes the moisturizer thicker, and enables it to be absorbed into the skin.
Combination-Use lotions that are free of acids if you have combination skin. A good product for combination skin, which is the hardest to find products for, is Biotherm Aquasource. This product can also be used for normal skin.
Use sunblock daily to protect the skin from harmful UV Rays with an SPF of 50 or less.
