How To Create a Skin Care Routine That Matches Your Skin Type...

One of the most important things you can do for your skin is to develop and stick to a skincare routine. Good skin care is important because it helps your skin stay in good condition. You're shedding skin cells throughout the day, so it's important to keep your skin glowing and in good condition. An effective routine can help prevent acne, treat wrinkles, and help keep your skin looking its best. You need to create a skincare schedule to meet your specific need. 

Why Create a Skincare Routine?

Skincare routines can help prevent breakouts, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and help keep your skin looking and feeling great. The best skincare regimes exfoliate dead skin cells, moisturize skin, and give it the nutrients it needs for a healthy glow.

The 4 Steps to Skincare...

  • Step 1 - A Cleanser
  • Step 2 - An Exfoliant
  • Step 3 - A Moisturizer
  • Step 4 - An SPF

Cleansing is the most basic aspect of skincare, everyone should do it daily. Depending on the needs of your skin, your time, and your budget you can include steps to remove makeup, exfoliate, tighten pores, and apply some sunscreen.

Knowing What The Right Skincare Routine Is For You

Which skin type are you? oily, dry, or sensitive. Do you wear makeup? Are you outside in the sun for a good part of the day? Are you willing and have the time for a regimen? And lastly consider your budget. Skin care products can be expensive. Pick products you like and can afford.

Consistency With a Skin Care Routine Is Key

Consistency means sticking to the skin care routine even when you do not feel like it. :-) Sometimes you will feel you do not have the time for your routine. It can be difficult sticking to your routine but the results will be worth it. You should be cleansing at least twice a day. Enjoy using products that you enjoy working with. Try using products with essential oils that make you feel good, like Cosheao Soaps. Keep your skin care products in a visible place so you use them. Keep it simple, do not implement a complicated routine.

What Skin Type Do You Have?

If you are unsure of your skin type you can consult with a dermatologist or esthetician. They can help you determine your skin type. Once you determine which skin type you are you can choose products that will give you an effective skincare routine.

  • Normal Skin - Not too dry or too oily
  • Dry Skin - With dry skin your skin may be itchy and flaky, especially in cold weather. Mature skin that is dry tends to wrinkle. Make sure you moisturize both morning and evening if you have dry skin.
  • Oily Skin - Oily skin will be shiny. You may have issues with acne or breakouts even as an adult. You still need to moisturize, but choose something natural and include exfoliating at least once a week.
  • Sensitive Skin - You may have an allergic reaction to many things if you have sensitive skin. Pay close attention to the ingredients in your products. All natural with no synthetic fragrances would be best. 

The 4 Main Steps of a Skincare Routine

  • Cleansing - Washing your face in the morning and evening with a gentle cleanser and warm water.
  • Toning - Balancing the skin. Balancing Toner removes any traces of dirt, oil and makeup, and other surface impurities gently without damaging the skin or causing unnecessary dryness.
  • Moisturizing - Hydrating and softening the skin. Use a face oil with essential oils. That advice applies to those of you with oily skin as well
  • Exfoliating -Twice a week use a gentle exfoliating scrub or mask This is especially important for normal and oily skin.

The goal of any skin-care routine is to tune up your complexion so it’s functioning at its best, and also troubleshoot or target any areas you want to work on. We have focused more on face care but skincare for your body matters also. Exfoliating to eliminate dull skin, moisturizing for relieving dry skin, and use of natural products to calm skin and improve your mental health works helps holistically.
