The Best Ways to Care for Your Skin
Taking care of your skin is not always the easiest or most convenient chore. The way you wash your face is just as important as what you wash it with. With the proper routine, washing your face can help you avoid breakouts and inflammation.
One of the biggest mistakes people make in their skincare routine is avoiding washing their face before bed. Throughout the day our skin produces an oil buildup, so it’s important you’re cleansing as dirt and oil can cause both acne and redness. Also, washing with a makeup removing cleansing cloth is not recommended as they can leave behind a residue on your skin. It’s best to still rinse with a cleanser afterwards if you do use a cleansing cloth.
Another tip to care for your skin is one many of us avoid: washing with lukewarm water. We know, no one wants to shower with cold water, but your water temperature can actually have a negative effect on your skin. Washing with hot water can cause your skin to dry out quickly as it strips your skin of its healthy oils.
The best tip we can offer is to ensure you’re using a cleanser for your specific skin type. If you have acne-prone skin, you should not be using the same cleanser you’d use if you had dry skin. Find a cleaning wash that fits you and your skin best. And don’t forget to moisturize directly after washing your face so your skin cells can effectively absorb the moisturizer.
