What Is the Ultimate Skin Care Routine?

To take perfect care of your skin, you have to be disciplined. You cannot skip cleansing in the morning or use an anti-aging cream occasionally. The big question is what the best skin care routine is. This short guide will help you to answer it. Follow the tips below to ensure that you will get the desired results.

Choosing the Right Products

The first factor which you should base your choice of products for your skin care routine is your skin type. There are cleansers, moisturizers, masks and other essentials designed especially for oily, dry, combination, normal and sensitive skin. Just keep in mind that hydration is important for all skin types when making a choice.

The next factor to consider is your age. Usually, the products are divided into decade-based categories – 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s and over, as they reflect accurately how the skin changes over time. The third factor to consider is whether you have any specific issues that you need to target such as acne, wrinkles or uneven pigmentation. Once you have the right products, you can build an excellent skin care routine to use daily and weekly.

The Best Daily Routine

Perform the following steps in the morning:

Cleaning – A gentle cleanser will help you to remove the excess sebum which has built up on your face at night.

Toning – The job of the toner is to keep the skin tight and to prevent the clogging of the pores. You need to apply only a thin layer of it.

Moisturizing – The ideal moisturizer provides both deep hydrating and protection from free radicals. You will benefit from using a product with SPF 15 or higher. If you have oily skin or simply don’t like wearing heavy makeup during the day, consider a product with tint which will mask blackheads, dilated pores and other imperfections and let the skin breathe at the same time.

The steps to perform in the evening are similar:

Cleaning – You can use the same cleanser as in the morning. Still, if you wear heavy and/or water-resistant makeup during the day, you may want to use a potent makeup remover beforehand.

Night cream application – Use a skin care products which targets your particular problems. Most treatment creams work best at night because this is the time when the skin recuperates. Remember that sleeping for at least 8 hours every night should also part of your beauty routine.

The Ideal Weekly Routine

There are some home skin care treatments which should be used weekly rather than daily. These are:

Exfoliation – Use a product which is especially designed to remove the dead cells from the topmost layer of the skin. This helps to remove impurities and to stimulate the production of new cells. If the classic scrub is too harsh for you, consider exfoliants based on fruit acids.

Mask application – The main job of a facial mask is to extract impurities, but you can also get deep hydration and nourishing. Apply the mask after taking a shower or a bath for best results and don’t keep it on for longer than recommended.
It’s time to start following the ultimate skin care routine.

What Is Skin Resurfacing?

It’s natural for people to want to achieve perfection in everything that they do and in the way in which they look too. Skin resurfacing is one of the major methods for removing imperfections from the face, neck, hands and the rest of the body. These range from wrinkles, fine lines and age spots to scars left by acne, diseases, injuries or surgical treatments. There are three main types of skin resurfacing treatments and each one works in a specific way to produce the desired results. It is worth looking at all of them.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

This is the trendies of beauty treatments at present. It involves using pulses of strong light for removing the topmost layer of the skin and heating the layers below. This triggers a natural response in the body. It produces new skin cells to heal itself. As a result, the skin becomes smoother and softer. The application of heat stimulates collagen production. With more of this essential compound, the skin becomes plump again.
Given its effects, laser skin resurfacing has a wide range of applications. It is used extensively as an anti-aging treatment for the removal of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and sun spots and for fighting sagginess which usually occurs on the face and neck. This treatment can also be helpful for removing different types of scars including acne scars. It usually works best for scars with small to moderate depth.

Chemical Peels

These skin resurfacing treatments have been around for quite some time. A specially formulated mixture is applied on the face and often on the neck too. It has to stay on the face for a short period of time. Then it is removed gently. The purpose of the peel is to remove the topmost layer of the skin and stimulate skin regeneration. This doesn’t happen immediately, however. The process is gradual and make take up to several weeks to be completed.
While chemical peels trigger the growth of new skin cells like the laser treatment does, they don’t provide the same high stimulation to collagen production. That is why it typically takes longer for people to get the desired results. Still, they work well for removing various types of imperfections, from age spots, discoloration and wrinkles to acne scars. They help for brightening the skin too.

Dermabrasion Treatments

Dermabrasion is the medical name of mechanical exfoliation. The treatment involves the use of a specially designed device for removing the topmost layer of the skin. It has to be operated by an experienced dermatologist, of course. Microdermabrasion offers less deep skin resurfacing. There are even microdermabrasion tools designed for home use.
One of the key things which make dermabrasion and microdermabrasion stand out is that the treatment can be performed with an advanced precision tool which has a very small tip. This allows the dermatologist to target fine lines, wrinkles and spots in small and sensitive areas such as those around the eyes and the lips. That is why microdermabrasion is often used for enhancing the effects of chemical peels.
When choosing a skin resurfacing treatment, you need to consider your skin type to make the best decision.
