If your skin care routine does not seem to be working perhaps the one you have isn’t meant for your skin type and it is time to develop a new routine that is better suited for your needs. This happens a lot more often than you might think. It is important that you start to behave and shop for your skin type. It doesn’t matter if you have oily, dry or combination skin or if your skin is sensitive or sun damaged; there are products and caring methods that will work with every skin type. However, there are some common mistakes that are made even if you are getting everything else right. Our previous post on effective solutions to clear acne scars and common acne remedies was a bit more broad but this one will be focused on more general skincare techniques.
This article will talk about proven and successful skin care routines for different types of skin.
If your skin is very oily and you can’t do anything to dry it up even a little bit, it is time to seek a dermatologist’s advice. Diet and skin care habits are equally important in this situation. Make sure you are not stripping the oil off your face every time you wash. Do you cleanse with bar soap? If you do then you should stop right now because it could be causing the problem. There is also medication that is based on retinoids that can help you reduce the amount of oil your skin produces at the application sites. It’s easy to aggravate your oil glands because they are sensitive and react to all sorts of external influences.
Wash your hands thoroughly before you wash your face. This morning wash will remove oils as well as night creams. If you use cleansers regularly it’s important to remember not to over cleanse. If your face is dry, then you can apply a light moisturizer after the water splash. Of course if you have oily skin, then you won’t need to do that.
Dermatologists all over the world agree that the most important thing you can do to care for your skin is to choose a good sunscreen. Everyone knows how bad it is for your skin to have too much exposure to the sun. Even if you aren’t a regular sunbather, after years of living the cumulative damage effects will begin to appear. Don’t believe anybody who tells you that you won’t face the same risk by tanning in a salon.
Don’t get fooled by cooler weather or rainy days. Your face can still be harmed by UV rays because they are always present.
Regardless of your particular skin type, you need to apply the right kind of skin care to your face and body. If you are just getting started with your skin care program, or for some reason need to change products, then you will most likely find that you have to experiment a little before finding the ideal skin products for your type. Because it’s a fact of good skin care you can’t let it discourage you. In order to get the best results once you’ve found the right product you’ll want to stick with it long term.
