Use a facial cleanser specific to your skin type
The first and most important step to help remove makeup, dirt, impurities and excess oil. Prepare your skin to receive other skin care products designed to help your skin maintain a healthy state. Choosing the right cleanser for your skin type means you will get your skin clean while leaving it well balanced.
Cleansers for dry to very dry skin
Cleansers for normal to dry skin
Cleansers for combination skin
Skin cells turnover on average every 28-40 days. In order to see new, fresh skin, it’s important to remove the older, outer layers of dead skin. Exfoliating helps brighten and smooth your face, unclogs pores and can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
There are 2 types of exfoliation: physical and chemical. Physical exfoliators have scrubbing ingredients to help remove dead skin from the surface of skin. Cleansing brushes and exfoliating cloths also use physical exfoliation to smooth skin. Chemical exfoliators use key ingredients to break down the bonds holding dead skin cells to skin so the cells can be rinsed away more easily.

Use a retinol-based product
A retinoid is a derivative of Vitamin A compounds that have been shown to be the most effective treatments for reducing fine lines, wrinkles and even acne breakouts and blemishes. Start with a low dosage 1-2 times per week and gradually work your way up over time.
If you are someone who is not able to use retinol due to sensitivities, try products containing bakuchiol which is a plant-based, natural alternative to retinol that is suitable for sensitive skin.
Finish your skin care regimen with a moisturizer. Moisturizers are multi-taskers that maintain or replenish precious moisture and some also deliver anti-aging benefits.
Lighter weight gel moisturizers are great for oily skin, yes, oily skin needs moisture too. Richer, cream moisturizers are great for drier skin.
SPF – Sunscreen
Helps to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays, which can lead to skin cancer and definitely premature signs of aging. Use every day, regardless of time of year, sunny, overcast, rainy and indoors too.
You can choose a moisturizer with SPF or a separate sunscreen to apply after your moisturizer.
