Skin Care Regimen

Typically, a skin care routine consists of the following steps: washing, exfoliating, moisturizing and sun protection. Most people opt to stick to their regimen twice a day, especially when they often stay outdoors, or are exposed to pollutants for long periods of time. Doing your routine in the morning and before sleeping at night is usually the case.

Cleansing unclogs your pores and washes away make-up and dirt accumulation, while moisturizing keeps your skin from becoming dry and prevents premature ageing. Various beauty experts advise daily exfoliation to remove the pileup of dead epidermal cells, but doing it daily may lead to irritation and other skin problems in some people. In a week, once or twice exfoliation is usually enough, but applying sunscreen throughout the day is a must. Protection from sun damage caused by ultraviolet light UVA and UVB is what most experts say as the most imperative step in any skin care routine. Since these damaging sun rays are the number one environmental cause of skin cancer and premature ageing, it never hurts to apply sunscreen or beauty products with UV blockers whenever you are exposed to the sun.

Now that you have learned the basics, your beauty regimen must always be optimized for the type of skin you have-whether it be oily, dry, combination or sensitive. Skin type may vary because of many factors: diet, age and season. Surprisingly, a low-fat diet tends to make your skin dry, while a diet rich in essential fatty acids may improve it. Menopause may also affect your skin type, sometimes turning oily skin into dry skin. During summer, the skin is likely to be oilier, while during the winter season, it is apt to become drier.

For these reasons, determining the type of skin you have and your needs is a must in creating a skin care routine. There are numerous skin care products and cosmetics suitable for a particular skin type, so choosing your products can be fairly easy. But as time goes by, adjusting your routine as your skin changes is a useful idea.
