Basic Skincare, Part Three: Skin Type
We have covered cleansing and exfoliation but have only briefly touched on skin type, even though knowing and understanding your skin type is really the first step in basic skin care. As we’ve discussed before, your skin type falls into one of four general categories: normal, oily, dry, or combination. Along with these skin types, you may also have a condition such as sensitive skin, acne prone skin, sun damaged, dehydrated, or aging skin.
There are several methods you can use to help figure out your skin type.
Basic Skincare, Part Two: Exfoliation
Now that you know how to properly cleanse your skin, you’ll want to establish an exfoliation routine fit for your specific skin type. This brings us to the common question, “What is exfoliation, and why do we need it?”. Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells through either chemical or mechanical manipulation. “Off with the old, in with the new”... in layman’s terms. Promoting skin cell turnover and forcing your body to do it quicker, like it used to in your youth, is the key to anti-aging, smooth skin, and blackhead-free pores.
Basic Skincare, Part One: Cleansing
Skin cleansing really shouldn’t be a complicated concept. But so many things have been shoved in your face, how can you really be expected to know what to do? Everyone has different skin, therefore the same product that works for your sister may not be for you, or what was a miracle for you may wreak havoc on your coworker’s face. And what’s promised by a YouTube makeup junkie who has mastered the art of hiding imperfections may not work for your low maintenance non-camoflauging makeup style (raises hand).
