Many individuals do not take care of their skin. These people take their skin for granted. Face care is extremely important because the skin has basic needs that it must have in order to stay healthy. The skin on the face needs more care than the skin on other areas of the body because it contains more oils. As a result, dirt and oil can get trapped in its pores. In addition, the face is exposed to more environmental elements that could damage its skin. A proper skin care regimen should be applied to the skin on the face in the morning and evening.
Face care in the morning can be brief and can be done in either the shower or at the sink. A person should start by washing their face with lukewarm water and a cleanser. Bar soap should be avoided since it could dry the skin. Also, instead of rubbing the skin with a towel, an individual should blot it dry. Next, apply a toner to get rid of any residue that is left over from the cleanser and to get rid of any left over make up. Afterwards, a moisturizer should be applied to keep skin feeling soft and smooth away wrinkles. Sunscreen should be applied after using moisturizer to avoid damage from the sun.
An evening face care routine starts in a similar way. A person should begin by washing their face with a cleanser and pat it dry. Next, they should use a toner on their face. Then, they should use an exfoliator to get rid of dead skin. This will allow other products to penetrate the skin and it will leave the skin looking brighter. remember to massage the exfoliator gently. Usually an exfoliator can be applied twice a week but it will vary by brand. Lastly, a moisturizer that is specified for skin type should be applied.
Once, a person gets in the habit of daily face care, their regimen will only take five to ten minutes each day. The skin will be healthier, clearer and softer. In addition, damage from environmental factors will be minimized. To keep skin healthy people should avoid going to bed with make up on and use a sunscreen regularly.
