Good Facial Care Regimen
Just as all people are different, so is their skin type. Your skin type plays a big role in determining a good facial care regimen. Your face requires a lot more care than other areas of your body because it is constantly exposed to weather, pollution, and sunlight. All of these factors damage your skin. Most men and women know the basics of skin care, however many do not use a daily regimen. Taking care of your skin can allow you to look and feel great. You should have a morning and nightly regimen that you stick to. This is a loose guide to follow and should be altered depending on your skin type.
Steam allows your pores to open to allow a deeper cleaning. You can use a facial steamer or simply use a warm washcloth. Wring the excess water from the cloth and lay it over your face. Allow to set for at least a minute or two. Another easy way is simply taking a hot shower. If you use the shower for this step, be sure to continue on to cleansing immediately after you get out.
Use a gentle face wash that is recommended for your skin type. Use the recommended amount into the palm of your hand and lather it with warm water. In a circular motion massage the cleanser onto your face and neck. Rinse your face and neck, then pat dry.
Toning is important because it removes any dirt or residue that may have been left from cleansing. The toner also ensures that any soap residue is fully removed. Squirt the recommended amount onto a cotton ball and wipe your face and neck.
To ensure that your skin is hydrated you should use a good moisturizer that works for your skin type. In the morning you may want to use a moisturizer that includes SPF. In the evening you can use sweet almond oil in place of a normal moisturizer. Sweet almond oil is great for your skin. A good facial care regimen also includes exfoliating and/or masking on a regular basis, around once a week. With a good regimen you can age much more gracefully as well as have beautiful, glowing skin.
