Our skin sheds dead cells throughout the day, and new skin is coming on the top, so it is very important to take good care of baby skin to keep it healthy and glowing
When you’re a beginner and trying to find one good routine that works for you, just remember one rule
Keep it very simple and follow it everyday
So without any delay let’s start with our morning routine
First thing that you must do in morning is, remove excess oil from your pores
For this purpose you can choose a good salicylic acid based face cleanser. As a beginner you can start with 0.5% SA face cleanser, but if you have active acne, or blackheads on your face, you can also go for 2% salicylic acid face cleanser
Salicylic acid has BHA, it goes down into your pores and removes excess oil. It also fights bacteria that causes breakouts on your face
Just rub it and leave this cleanser for 2 minutes on your face, and then you can wash your face with water.
After rinsing there is no need to pat dry your face. Salicylic acid removes oil from your pores, it is very obvious that it will make your skin dry, so next thing that you need to apply on your face is a layer of humectant to lock moisture of water into your skin
Just put few drops of a good hyaluronic acid serum on your face and tap it on your face
Next you can apply a layer of gel based moisturizer on your face,
make sure it should be fragrance free, if you don’t have any, you can also apply aloe vera gel on your face
End your morning routine with layer of sunscreen. Your sunscreen should be broad spectrum and with SPF 30 or more
Apply 2-3 layers of sunscreen on your face, and you’re done
Now coming to night skin care. Night time is best to treat skin issues with the help of actives.
In night time, you must do double cleanse your face,
first with oil cleanser to remove sunscreen and make from your face, and after that you can use any gentle face cleanser to remove dirt and impurities
After double cleansing pat dry your face, and let it dry completely before putting any active on your face.
If you have dull skin, you can use vitamin C serum. It is rich in anti-oxidants that makes your skin glowing and brighter.
Retinoids are best if you have problem of acne, large skin pores, clogged pores etc.
As a beginner you can start with tretinoin 0.025% for retinoid treatment. Apply a thin layer of retinoid on your face, and after that apply a layer of moisturizer on your face
