How to do three skin care steps in detail?
In the last article, we learned about the three basic steps of skin care. Now, let's go into the details of these three steps with me.
Skin Care Routine: Step By Step
Step 1: Cleansing
Let’s talk about why facial cleansing is so important for a morning skincare routine, and night.
A common benefit of facial cleansing is removing oil, dirt, and other unwanted elements on our face. In addition, cleansing helps boost hydration. Regular facial cleansing is an important factor in maintaining proper hydration on the face.
Excessive dirt buildup on the surface of the skin can cause blockages of the pores, which allows bacteria to penetrate causing inflammation, which in turn can cause acne. For best results: cleanse morning, night and after exercising.
Step 2: Serums
When to apply serum? & How to apply serum?
Typically serums are applied after toners, just before a moisturizer or SPF. Serum can be applied with your fingers, patting it on and smoothing it out. Ensure coverage of your entire face, while allowing the serum to absorb into your skin.
Step 3: Moisturizer
What is a Moisturizer?
The main purpose of moisturizer is to hydrate the skin and leave your skin feeling soft to the touch. Moisturizers can sometimes have an SPF, which helps protect from the sun.
When to apply moisturizer?
A moisturizer can be applied in the morning or night. A moisturizer application should be applied as the last step before makeup is applied. Apply the moisturizer just after the serum, before makeup application.
For nighttime application, apply moisturizer as the last step before going to bed. Application should be after the serum. If a serum or toner is not being applied, apply moisturizer after cleansing your face.
How to apply moisturizer?
Use fingers to dab moisturizer in key areas on the face such as forehead, nose, chin, cheeks and neck.
Begin spreading the moisturizer into skin using a swirling motion until the moisturizer is absorbed into your skin. Wait for the moisturizer to dry before applying makeup.
