Facial skin care 101 (Back to Basics)
Facial skin care is more a matter of discipline than anything else. A facial skin care routine is what you need (and you need to follow the facial skin care routine with complete seriousness). So let’s check what comprises an effective facial skin care routine. Well, very simply, a facial skin care routine can follow the following 4 steps:
Step 1: Cleansing
Step 2: Toning
Step 3: Exfoliating
Step 4: Moisturising
Here is the interesting part, I manage to compile some of the products suited to address each steps. This may help to ease the burden of you finding the right ones in the sea of stuff in the market place.
Step 1: Cleansing
The first thing in facial skin care routine. Cleansing helps in removing dust, pollutants, grease and extra oil from your skin, thereby preventing damage to your skin. Just spot your face and neck with a good cleansing lotion or cream and gently massage it into your skin using upward strokes. Use a soft face tissue or cotton wool to wipe your face in a gentle patting fashion (do not rub). Cleansing should be done at least twice a day i.e. morning (as part of complete facial skin care routine) and evening (on a standalone basis). Water soluble cleansers are the best for inclusion in your facial skin care routine.
Cleansing #1 (Soosul Cleansing Foam)
This is a rich lather foam cleanser that removes makeup residues and impurities effectively it’s a weak-acid cleanser made of the mixture of Phellinus linteus “Sang-Hwang”mushroom extract and natural vegetable ingredients. While most soaps are alkaline, this cleanser is weak acidic and protects rough, severely dry, oily or sensitive skin and normalizes all the problems of trouble-prone skin that gives it an identity of a well verse foam cleanser.
It also effectively prevents pimple breakouts, which many of us are having, especially when we are stress adds up the pollution we been dealing with daily it all sums up for this annoying acne breakouts. This improves resilience and vitality of the skin.
For its benefits summary it has anti-acne, anti-aging and whitening effects. Providing your skin an all in one benefits cleansing experience, considering of the things that it can offer, think giving it a check on your list.
Step 2: Toning
The next in a facial skin care routine. However, this is the optional part of the facial skin care routine. Mostly, proper cleansing can compensate for toning. Toning helps remove all traces of dirt, grease and excess cleanser. Instead of making it part of your daily facial skin care routine, you can do this occasionally i.e. when you have been exposed to particularly harsh environment/pollution.
Toning #2 (Skylake Oriental Herb Relax toner)
An all-natural toner formulated with oriental herbal extract. A refreshing aromatic mist soothes the skin making it calm inside, this fully rehydrates, tones and balances your skin condition, this will really leave your skin with a cool and revitalizing sensation because of its 100% natural herbal essence spray that is suitable for the whole family.
This product proves its authentic natural properties. Known to soothe, hydrate and empower skin’s natural healing abilities to renew its appearance. I find this product one of a kind of all the natural toners out there as a proof of being authentically natural, you can also spray it in your eyes doing it a favour to soothes and refresh your tired eyes. Quite amazing! For daily use this will be your great buddy.
Step 3: Exfoliation
An optional step in everyday routine for facial skin care. However, exfoliation is necessary at least once a week (or twice, depending on the skin type and the environmental conditions). Exfoliation finds its place in facial skin care routine because of the natural tendency of skin to replenish the skin cells every 3 or 4 weeks. As a facial skin care technique, exfoliation helps in removing the dead skin cells that block the pores, thus assisting the skin in the natural process. However, excessive or harsh exfoliation can cause damage to your skin; so you need to balance it out.
Exfoliation #3 (Skylake Cleansing powder)
Skylake Cleansing powder is a gentle facial scrub comprising of a variety of oriental herbs to exfoliate and polish away dead skin and impurities. This Bottle keeps creating a buzz around the shoppers hearing their testimonies around with the satisfaction they got from this cleansing product. Like it helps to refine their pores, lighten freckles and pigmentations. Another thing is it promotes a fresh, radiant and glowing complexion as they felt their facial skin really got a boost.
As a natural herbs product it is suitable for all skin type, which everyone will not worry of any irritation it can cause. But then as a rule of thumb just follow the direction as it is. Maybe, it’s time to follow the crowd and see yourself why is this cleansing powder being the talk of the town?.
Step 4: Moisturising
In fact, moisturising is the most important part of facial skin care routine. Moisturisers prevent your skin from getting dry. Dry skin is really undesirable since it cause the upper layer skin to break, leading to dead skin cells. Again, use light upward strokes to make the moisturiser more effective. Moisturisers work the best when applied on warm and damp skin. So do not try to remove all the moisture in the previous steps of facial skin care routine.
Moisturising #4 (BAEGAYUL Peony Moisturizing Cream)
BAEGAYUL Peony Moisturizing Cream contains Paeonia albiflora flower extract from Jirisan Mountain, it spreads smoothly while hydrating and revitalizing our skin. Creating a moisture coating barrier without stickiness, it also protects the skin from harmful environmental factors.
Besides the normal facial skin care routine, you should also exercise the following for facial skin care:
* Use proper make-up remover instead of just washing it away
* Pay heed to your skin type and the environment, when choosing facial skin care products.
* Before you start using a new facial skin care product, test it by applying it on a short patch of skin e.g. ear lobes.
* Never rub your skin too hard.
Once again a healthy skin care regimen boils down to discipline, doing our due diligence to search for good stuff that really works for us. And following the right step that it requires in terms of application. Hope this simple topic will give you a bit of ease on your next pursuit of your Facial items.
