If you’re new in the skincare world, trying to know what exactly you need can be a daunting task because there are numerous products available and it’s your skin we are talking about here. One little mistake and you’ll be dealing with breakouts and burns.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the essential skin care products that every woman should have on hand at all times.
A cleanser is more moisturizing and hydrating than your typical face wash. Ideally, you should cleanse your skin morning and in the evening, paying extra attention and care when removing makeup at the end of the day. If you have acne, it’s best to go for cleansers with Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide.
When your skin is dry and irritated, it actually causes breakouts and acne. By moisturizing your skin, you can reduce your chances of any skin problems arising. If you have oily skin, do NOT skip this step since that results in your skin getting dehydrated and you breaking out.
Serums are skin care products that are designed to deliver high concentrations of specific active ingredients to the skin. to deliver high concentrations of specific active ingredients to the skin. They are to be applied after cleansing but before the moisturizer. If you have sensitive skin, make sure you do a patch test before you go ahead to apply it on your face.
4. Chemical exfoliant
We specifically said chemical because the DIY scrubs usually cause tears on the skin whiles the BHA and AHA exfoliants are non-abrasive. Exfoliation helps speed up new skin cell production, clear away old skin cells and unclog pores. Don’t overdo it.
This is arguably the most important product but we often overlook it’s importance. You should apply a high-quality SPF 30 sunscreen daily, even if you’re indoors most of the day.
6. Eye cream
The skin around our eyes are the thinnest so they show signs of aging first. The mistake most of us make us to forget about this until we see wrinkles forming but prevention is better than cure. Applying eye creams help to keep the skin under and around your eyes hydrated and plumped.
We hope this helps you out.
