A step-by-step guide to cleansing your face whatever your skin type.
Dry or sensitive skin
Use a cleansing milk rather than a foaming wash to prevent skin drying out, and avoid products with mineral oils and alcohol as these can irritate the skin. choose a granule free or enzymatic exfoliator, and follow with a hydrating mask to put back moisture. Keeping things simple will ensure you don’t overload your skin with ingredients and will minimize reactions.
Normal to combination
There are a variety of products which can be used without too many problems. you may need to pay special attention to an oily t-zone and use a hydrating moisturizer if your cheeks tend to be drier than the rest of your face. regular exfoliation will keep skin looking healthy, and a weekly mask will benefit specific needs like rejuvenation
Oily or acne-prone skin
A good-quality facial wash is the basis of clean, spot-free skin. use products with ingredients like salicylic acid, sulfur, and clay, which remove excess sebum and impurities. look for formulas that are oil-free, avoid extra rich products and exfoliate twice a week to remove dead skin cells. never sleep with makeup on to avoid blocking pores.
Look for products with anti-wrinkle or lifting actions and be vigilant about removing makeup each day to keep skin fresh. cleansing milk and lotions tend to benefit women experiencing a loss of moisture and a firming or collagen-rich mask will help keep skin plumped and youthful.
