Take Time to Cleanse Your Face
Cleansing is an important step in a skin care routine that helps to remove dirt, oil, bacteria, and helps eliminate dead, flaky skin.
Here are some tips on how to achieve optimal results from your cleansing routine. You deserve it!
1. Remove your makeup. Start your routine by removing your makeup. Your makeup adds an extra barrier between your cleanser and your skin. Once you have completed the makeup removal step, your skin will be ready for cleansing.
2. Understand your skin type. Your skin type will determine what your skin needs to achieve a balanced, beautiful complexion. Here is a breakdown of the most common skin types:
Normal to Dry: People with this skin type have a generally healthy appearance with a clear and even texture and small to medium-sized pores. They do not have oil on the “T” zone and may have occasional tightness or flaking.
Dry: Those with this skin type have no oiliness, small pores, and may have red or rough patches. Skin can feel tight and itchy and exhibit visible flakiness.
Normal to Oily: This skin type is generally clear with small to medium sized pores and some oiliness in the “T” zone.
3. Don’t Exfoliate every day. When it comes to exfoliation, it’s best to do it 2-3 times a week, not every day. Exfoliating every day can actually make your skin more oily (especially if your skin is on the oily to acne side) because it’s stripping your skin of its natural oils, causing your body to over compensate which means even more break outs! When you exfoliate try using the SeneDerm Solutions Polishing Exfoliator for a gentle exfoliation or the Facial Resurfacer when you need a heavy-duty scrub.
4. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. The final step of your routine is to hydrate your skin with a serum and or a moisturizer to seal in all the good vitamins and nutrients for your skin while keeping harmful free radicals out. For the ultimate moisturization, try using the Climate Control and SeneSerum-C, then use the Day Time or Evening Moisturizer as the last step to your skincare routine.
Following these simple steps, you’ll find your skin looking and feeling better from the inside out and you’ll have a flawless canvas for you to apply your long-lasting SenseCosmetics®.
