Everyone wants to look the best we can. If we were able to pick flawless, beautiful and glowing skin then we would. It’s a no-brainer. A solid skin care routine is certainly one way of ensuring that this is achievable.

What’s a good skin maintenance routine? Is there a universal size that works for all ?… Unfortunately no. There are many different kinds of skin, and each type requires its own special, loving care. So , the question becomes what do I know what’s right for me?

No matter if you suffer from dry, oily or combination skin, as well as acne-prone skin, we’ll try to give a basic, easy to understand guide on how to start your journey into the difficult world of skin care products.

Any good skincare routine should include a cleanser,NAD + Face Serum  followed by a toner, then a serum and lastly a moisturiser.

The cleanser you pick should match your specific skin needs. For oily/combination/acne prone skin a good place to start would be a gel cleanser or something like Elizabeth’s Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser for combination skin to ensure that not too much oil is added. If you suffer from dry skin, a cream cleanser would be best for you. StriVectin Comforting Cleanser would be the ideal choice for this.

Then, we’d suggest a toner. There are three primary types of toners to pick from. First, if you suffer from dry skin, a cleanser with a low alcohol content is recommended. Alcohol can cause dryness to your skin so stay away from it if you are able. The Lancome Tonique Confort Hydrating Toner would be one we’d recommend for this. If you have oily skin, you might want to choose a toner which also exfoliates. This is because of the greater chance that oil will get trapped in your pores and possibly creating breakouts. If you suffer from combination skin then it’s a bit of a judgement call but it’s possible to use either type of cleanser but always avoid products that contain alcohol, particularly when it’s a large concentration.

Next comes the serum. Some people may wonder if it is necessary to use both the moisturiser and a serum… but if you want to get the best results , then it’s. The purpose of a serum is to provide skin with deeper effects than a moisturiser can. They penetrate down into the epidermis and provide an intensive boost of nourishment for your skin. The various types of serums include exfoliating serums, brightening serums as well as anti-ageing serums. firmsing serums and hydrating. Based on what you wish to achieve and what your skin’s needs are will naturally determine what serum you pick.

Finally, moisturisers. There are many moisturisers out there but to simplify things, we’ve put them into three main categories. Humectants, Emollients , and Occlusive. In a nutshell humectants are intended for those who suffer from dry skin and assist to keep water in to hydrate the epidermis (the top layers of skin). They accomplish this by drawing in water from the air surrounding them, and also by taking water out of the dermis (the layer beneath the epidermis) to moisturise the surface skin layers. They are also beneficial for people with oily skin but still want to moisturise as they won’t increase the amount of oil in your skin. Emollients are great because they replicate the action of the natural oils in your skin. They can also reduce the volume of fluid loss (we lose an unknown daily amount of water, partially by leaking between pores) by filling in the gap between the skin cells. Lastly in our list will be the Occlusives. They are specifically designed for dry skin or those with eczema-related conditions. They create a physical barrier in between the surface of your body and surroundings, which helps to keep moisture in and preventing further loss. They’re surprisingly dense when compared to other moisturisers.
