Washing your face can seem like a chore when there's 10 other things to do. But skipping your cleanser in the morning and evening isn't a wise choice. Your morning cleanse is going to remove the oils and sweat that have built up throughout the night. Your night time cleanse is going to remove all the dirt, SPF, makeup and skincare products that were applied in the morning- giving your skin a clean slate to apply your nighttime products.
Depending on your skin type, exfoliating 1-3 times a week has a ton of benefits. Exfoliating unclogs pores, removes the buildup of dead skin cells, improves product penetration, evens skin tone and helps with acne breakouts!
Moisturizing daily will help keep the skin hydrated. Skipping your moisturizer can lead to an overproduction of oil, due to the skin trying to overcompensate for the lack of hydration.
Sun Protection or SPF.
SPF or sun protection factor is what's going to protect you and your largest organ. SPF helps to prevent premature skin aging caused by the sun- including wrinkles, sagging and age spots, UVA and UVB damage, along with the scariest one of all.. Skin cancer. Everyone, including men, women, children- no matter what skin color, MUST wear SPF daily!
The best advice to give someone starting a skincare routine is to be consistent. Consistency is key when getting on a skincare regime. Whether it’s applying your moisturizer every night or exfoliating your skin twice a week, it is important to maintain to keep your skin healthy!
