Know Your Skin Type

Understanding what your skin needs, means you can find the best products that will work well for your skin. Everyone’s skin is different and unique. There are categories for skin types which can be used as guidelines to help you find what products will be best suited to you. Depending on whether your skin is dry, normal, oily, combination, sensitive, acne-prone or aging, you should be using very different products. You can even end up being a mixture between a few skin types, or your skin may change with the seasons. You could be dry during winter and oily during summer, which is why you need to be aware of your skin and change up your routine.





Always Double Cleanse

Double cleansing is so important as part of your skincare routine. Make sure to wash your face twice, because one wash just isn’t enough. Whether you have has makeup on that day or not, it is essential at the end of the day to remove all the dirt, grime, makeup and pollution that can build up on your skin. Cleansing once removes surface dirt, but cleansing twice penetrates your pores.





Don’t Apply Too Much Product

When it comes to skincare, ‘less is more’ is the perfect rule. If you apply too much product, it will end up being piled on and can block your pores. Also, it will be a complete waste of product as your skin won’t be able to absorb it all if there is too much placed on the skin.





Don’t Forget To Use SPF

The sun is extremely dangerous for your skin. A lot of people tend to think that the only damage the sun can do to your skin is burn it, however it can destroy your skin. Over time the UVA rays that penetrate your skin can damage the collagen in your skin, which can lead to deep wrinkles and sagging skin. Make sure you wear sun cream; your skin will thank you for it!





Make Face Masks A Regular Thing

A lot of us will associate face masks with a one off pamper night with friends. However, they are actually really important as part of a regular skincare routine. Face masks can help to address a range of issues, from oily and acne-prone skin, to dry and sensitive skin. You need to make sure you find the right mask for your skin type.





Exfoliation Is Key

Making sure you regularly exfoliate (at least once a week), is so important for getting rid of dead skin cells that block your pores. It will clear out dead skin, dirt and grime that can lead to spots and blackheads, and will also brighten your complexion. It is great when applying other products too as it will help to penetrate deeper.
