The basics os skincare part 1

Part 1: Cleansing Tips

  • Facial skin should be cleansed every morning and evening.
  • Use a cleanser that is gentle and that will not strip the skin of its natural oils. Even acne prone skin should not be stripped of all oils.
  • Wash your hands first then wet the face.
  • Use a dime size amount of cleanser and gently massage into facial skin using circular motions for 30-60 seconds each morning and evening.
  • Only use your fingers to cleanse the delicate facial skin. Abrasive washcloths or scrubs can irritate the skin leading to bumps and blemishes.
  • A good cleanser should be gentle enough and effective enough to use to remove all eye make-up.
  • Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Do not scrub or rub facial skin.
  • Cleansing in the evening is important to remove makeup and residue from the day. This will allow for better penetration of your anti-aging serums and creams. Evening cleansing will also decrease pore clogging and breakouts.
  • Cleansing skin in the morning removes the excess dead skin cells from the skin’s regenerative and anti-aging processes that occurred during sleep.
  • Cleansing skin in the morning also decreases oiliness during the day especially for acne prone skin.

Product Cocktailing for Customizable Skincare

Product cocktailing is the art of blending and applying two or more products together to take your beauty results to the next level. It also helps streamline your beauty routine and save time by combining steps. This technique can be done by combining similar products (formulated to work synergistically) at once, and then applying to your face.
