Creating a practical skin care regimen requires having the right basics in your arsenal to get fresh, glowing skin — not just on the face but also the entire body. Below are five basic products to include in your list.
1. Bath Gels
Shower and bath gels are making waves in the skincare department simply because they truly work. One of the best things about using gels is that they clean the skin without stripping it of its natural oils, thus preventing it from looking dull and dry.
This product leaves a protective film that keeps moisture longer, keeping your skin looking fresh and smooth, all over.
Keep a separate product for cleaning the skin on your face, and consider the type of skin you have. For those with especially sensitive skin, using simple mild cleanser can solve common skin problems such as dryness and irritation. Cleansers are mild enough to wash off any impurities in the skin without removing its moisture.
Keep skin looking fresh and supple by giving a good scrub once every week. The skin renews every 7th day, and this product is ideally a 6th-day regimen that prepares your skin for the next renewal cycle. Scrubs slough off dry and dead skin cells to reveal a newer, fresher layer of skin.
Never underestimate the restorative power of skin toners. If your skin has been exposed to the sun longer than usual, making it dry and dull, using a toner specifically designed to restore the skin’s pH levels will bring it back to the right condition.
It’s also formulated to shrink pores, making the skin surface look smoother and more even. If your skin has recently suffered from dryness due to products that contain harsh ingredients, using a water-based toner can help bring the moisture level back to normal and return your skin’s natural glow.
There is a cream formulated to address specific skincare needs. Eye creams are specifically formulated to maintain the moisture and elasticity of the sensitive skin around the eyes. Eye creams prevent the early onset of fine lines and wrinkles, keeping the skin looking smooth and youthful.
Day and night creams, on the other hand, take care of the rest of the skin on your face as well as your neck. Day creams are formulated to keep your skin moisturized throughout the day and are packed with SPF to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays.
Night creams improve skin elasticity and restore any moisture that your skin has lost over the course of the day. As the skin works overnight to restore and repair your skin, boosting it with night cream can improve the renewal process, giving you better skin each morning. Now that’s a good start to your day.
So if you’re looking to improve your skin care regimen and vow to have better skin this year, include these five tried and tested products in your list and see how your skin starts looking amazing day after day.
