Use the right products for your skin
Knowing your skin is so important if you want to ensure it stays clear from breakouts. Find out what skincare brand works best for you and make sure to test around, a lot of products have sample sizes available for purchase before you commit to a full size. Try out different cosmetics and keep note of what causes your skin to become oilier, and what lasts all day without irritation on your skin. If you’re really unsure of what type of skin you have, then visit a skincare specialist and have them assess it for you. Also, keep in mind that different areas on your face may have different needs, so using one product on your whole face may not be what you need. No matter what skin type you have, always make sure to moisturize. If you have oily skin, opt for a moisturizer that is oil free and has hyaluronic acid in it to help combat breakouts.
Exfoliation should be a part of your skincare routine every day. It’s been said that when you’re in your 20’s, you should exfoliate twice per week, when you’re in your 30’s you should exfoliate three times per week and when you’re 40 you should exfoliate up to four times per week. Exfoliating is important because it helps take off the dead cells sitting on the surface of your skin and lets topical products absorb much easier into the fresh, healthy skin on your face. Stay away from products that use seeds or sharp nuts as their exfoliating agent and opt for fruit enzyme scrubs that won’t scratch your skin. Also, always ensure that your skin is steamed and warm while exfoliating, preferably while in the shower. Steam helps add moisture to the skin while you’re exfoliating.
