Try This Skincare Tip

Most skincare advisors and dermatologists recommend these three to five simple products to have flawless skin without the long routine. Depending on your skin’s sensitivity and needs, a simple cleanser, an exfoliation process weekly and an excellent moisturizer (SPF for daytime use and depending on your skin type, a thick or lightweight formula) are the three essentials to great skincare. You can add a serum and toner depending on the results you are looking for.

How to Choose Your Cleanser 

When choosing a cleanser, go with the one that helps balance your skin’s natural oil production. If it is too drying, you could create a problem that wasn’t there in the first place. Simple, gentle and fragrance-free cleansers similar to Perricone MD High potency nutritive cleanser can help keep your pores clear and keep your skin’s natural oils.

Balance is vital …

Balance is vital when maintaining simple skincare. Exfoliation can be trickier as it’s essential to use gentle products. All of us have different skin types; it is recommended to talk to a professional before choosing an exfoliant that may be too rough for your skin. The main thing to keep in mind is enzymatic exfoliants are less abrasive and cause less damage than chemical or physical scrubs. You do not need to exfoliate daily – once a week garners excellent results.

Light or Heavy Moisturizer, That is the Question

As for moisturizer, it depends. Moisturizer is a great skincare tool in your daily and nightly routine. A lightweight daily moisturizer with sunscreen can be a game-changer. We say lightweight if you wear makeup during the day; otherwise, if you have dry skin, go ahead and apply a product with a bit more substance. Nighttime is a different story, as this is a period where your skin is undergoing major repair. As always, consult with a professional to figure out what you need to bring equilibrium. You might need a light oil or a nourishing creamy formula. The key is to keep skincare simple. Most of us do not need fifteen bottles of who knows what on our counter to have great skin. Plus, it is better for the environment to use less products also as it creates less plastic waste. Keeping a simple skincare routine maintains beautiful skin and lessens waste.
