The best way to ensure your skin stays smooth and healthy is to implement a daily routine to care for and revitalize it. Skin care doesn’t come in a one-size-fits-all method, though, so it may take time and a bit of experimenting to find out what works best for you.

What Is Your Skin Type?

The first step to building a routine that works for you is to know what type of skin you have. Only by knowing your skin can you know how to take care of it. Figure out which of the following descriptions matches your skin best:

Dry Skin

Dry skin is flaky, scaly, or rough. Stick to gentle cleansers that don’t have alcohol or fragrances, because these things can dry you out even more. Be gentle with skin as you wash, then use plenty of warm water to rinse. Make sure the water isn’t too hot, as it can remove the natural oils from your face faster. Exfoliate once a week to get rid of flaky skin cells.

Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, you’re used to your skin being shiny and greasy, and you may have big pores. You’ll want to avoid cleansers that have oil in them. Rinse with plenty of warm water. Be careful with toners or astringents because it might irritate your skin. They are useful, though, for removing extra oil, which leaves your face less shiny and helps keep you feeling clean.

Combination Skin

Skin can also be a combination of dry and oily. You may be dry in some spots, such as cheeks, and oily in others, such as forehead, nose, and chin. Find something that works for you, but don’t feel you have to buy fancy products. Apply a gentle cleanser or soap with your fingertips, and don’t scrub your face. Rise with lot so warm water, and pat dry. If you experience your skin getting to dry or oily, try a different cleanser until you find the right match. This is also a good method to follow if you have normal skin, which is balanced, clear, and not sensitive

Sensitive Skin

Your skin may sting, burn, or itch after you use some makeup or other products. Avoid products that have alcohol, soap, acid, or fragrance. Look on the label for calming ingredients like aloe, chamomile, green tea polyphenols, and oats. You want products with fewer ingredients to keep your skin happy. Use a gentle cleanser, rinse with warm water, and pat – don’t rub – your face dry.
