Secrets to Great Skin

The two most important steps in every basic skin care routine is a good antioxidant and a good sunblock. A basic skincare routine has four steps for the day. Cleanse, treat (antioxidant), moisturize and protect (sunblock).  And three steps and night, Cleanse, treat and moisturize.

1. Cleanse:

The cleanser doesn’t need to be expensive. It just needs to be targeted for you skin type. If you have dry skin a cream cleanser or a mild exfoliating cleanser, for product penetration is best. Normal/combination skin types can use a gel or cream cleanser. For oily or acne skin types a cleanser with Salicylic or Glycolic works great.

2. Treat:

The treatment product should be a antioxidant for the skin. This is one of the most important products for the health of your skin. A topical Retinol is great for cell renewal. Vitamin C products are also great to protect the skin from photo ageing and sun damage.  Green Tea Anti-oxidant Serums offer free radical protection and protects the skin from damage.

3. Moisturize:

Moisturizers can ease the discomfort of dry or taut skin. And will improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Oil free or a skin clarifying moisturizers are recommended for oily or acne skin types.

4. Protect:

Sun protection is a must. The sun emits harmful UV rays that cause photo-aging (wrinkles, hyperpigmentation) and even skin cancer. Chemical free sunblocks are safe for all skin types.
