Skincare is an English term that means skincare and refers to the daily routine that one must have to maintain healthy, hydrated, smooth, luminous and young skin for longer.
To be able to have all the benefits of skincare, it is important that in the care routine products are used according to the person’s skin type, that is, whether it is dry, normal, mixed or oily, whether or not there is sensitivity and if you have easier acne onset. See how to know your skin type. So, taking into account the type of skin, the daily care routine and the most suitable products can be indicated by the dermatologist to have better results. Thus, the skincare routine can be done as follows:
Cleansing the face is essential to maintain healthy skin, allow cell regeneration and enhance the action of products that are applied to the face. Correct cleaning removes impurities, excess oil, dirt and pollution accumulated during the day, dead cells and makeup.
Cleaning can be done with a cleansing gel, cleansing milk or micellar water, adapted to the skin type. It is important to apply a tonic at the end, which helps to remove the traces of impurities, tones the skin, reduces the size of the pores and prepares the skin to receive the active ingredients. Cleaning products should be applied twice a day, in the morning and at night, before hydration.
Exfoliation is a very important step because it helps to remove dead cells, unclog pores and promote cell renewal. For a long time, it was advised to do this step only twice a week, so as not to harm the skin. However, there are already some softer products with smaller particles to allow this care to be done every day, without being abrasive to the skin.
In addition to the physical exfoliants, which are those that have microspheres in their composition, there are also chemical exfoliants, with alpha-hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid or lactic acid, which can be applied daily or according to the dermatologist’s guidance.
The serum is one of the most important in the skincare routine, because it has the most concentrated active components, compared to creams, and penetrates deeper into the skin, allowing a more effective treatment.
The serum can have a moisturizing, antioxidant, anti-ageing or anti-stain action, for example, and should be chosen taking into account the person’s concern for their skin.
Eye creams serve to moisturize and protect the eye area, as well as prevent ageing and prevent the appearance of bags in the eyes and dark circles. These products have a finer texture than face creams, being more easily absorbed by the skin.
The eye cream should be applied morning and night, on the bony area around the eyes, with gentle touches.
The day and/or night cream gives to hydrate, nourish and protect the skin against external aggressions, like as pollution. The day cream must have sunscreen or must be followed by the application of sunscreen.
This product should be applied to the face, neck and neck, avoiding the eye area, after cleaning and applying the serum.
In addition to these precautions, it is important to have a healthy and balanced diet to maintain skin health. See the following video on how to keep your skin healthy:
