At Derma Point, we have the best dermatologists who have revealed what products they use on a daily basis and what ingredients make a difference when it comes to their own skin glow. It is not sufficient to have great skin-care products: you also need to apply them in the right order for those products to be most effective. Your routine will depend on your type of skin, your products’ ingredients, and formulations, and on what time of the day you are using it.
What are the kind of skin types?
The correct routine begins with realizing what kind of skin you have. You will know how to take care of it then.
Dry skin is patchy, flaky, scaly, or rough whereas oily skin is shiny, greasy, and may have inflammatory acne; Combination skin is dry in areas like the cheeks and oily in the forehead, chin, or nose; After using some makeup or other items, sensitive skin can burn, sting, or cause tingling; Normal skin is balanced, clear and not sensitive to things.
Depending on your type of skin, pick an ideal cleanser. For normal or combination skin grab a mild and gentle cleanser. Rinse properly with warm water and pat it dry. For dry skin type use an alcohol-free gentle cleanser preferably with no added fragrance. Exfoliation once a week is recommended since it removes flaky skin and makes it clear. For oily skin wash your face, add an oil-free foaming cleanser. With plenty of warm water, shower. Afterward, you may want to use a toner or astringent, but be careful because it might irritate your skin. Take more precautions for sensitive skin. Do not exfoliate often. Try not to use alcohol, soap, acid, or fragrance-based products. Instead, look for soothing ingredients like aloe, chamomile, polyphenols from green tea, and oats on the bottle. The fewer components in a commodity, the happier your face can be.
Next, you may want to apply a toner that exfoliates as it extracts dead skin cells with ingredients such as glycolic acid. Twice a day, hydrating formulations can be used. Do not simultaneously use exfoliating toner and retinoids, or other exfoliators.
If you want to pamper yourself, serums containing antioxidants like vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, exfoliants such as alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), or lactic acid will also just improve your skincare routine, but do not have to be necessarily done.
If you have dark circles or if your eyes look puffy in the morning, a hydrating eye cream at night can cause fluid retention which will make your face brighter. This should be applied before a moisturizer
You may believe that your skin is too oily but it is necessary to moisturize at least once every day for all skin types. Apply it to help lock in moisture when your skin is still wet from washing or rinsing. Find a moisturizer that is light and oil-free whether you have acne or your skin is oily, so it won’t obstruct your pores. In all the other layers of product you have added, moisturizer hydrates both skin and locks.
Your moisturizer may have sunscreen but using separate coverage, too, is a smart idea. In no time the sun will damage your skin. Look for a sunscreen that offers an SPF of at least 30 for broad-spectrum protection. Wear it on a regular basis, even if it’s not sunny and it’s cold.
Make sure you wash off all your make-up before you sleep!!
