A basic skin care routine comes with 5 items:
- a cleanser
- sun block.
Each one contributes differently to the skin, which means that although skipping one or two may be possible, it’s usually best to have the whole army at your disposal.
This one can be used at least twice a day, once in the morning and another in the evening before going to bed. The cleanser’s job is to “cleanse” the skin by removing all the dirt, dust, and grime that resides in your pores. If left overnight, this dirt could very well be the start of a pimple.
A toner’s job is to tighten the pores so that no further dirt can get in after you’ve scrubbed it clean with a cleanser. A lot of women skip toners but you’ll find that the key to a blemish free skin are pores that are tightly closed, therefore creating a smooth, flat, and resilient surface. Like the cleanser, they are used on a daily basis.
Exfoliants should be used less often because the can lead to irritation. Essentially, what this does is get rid of the dead skin cells that may be lurking on your face, therefore allowing the younger, fresher skin to break free. Exfoliants are best used once a week since it essentially works as “micro scrubs” that can leave the skin raw and tender when used often.
