Every person has their own unique skin concerns and something to address when it comes to creating a proper skincare routine. With no skin being the same, it is important to keep this in mind when you are adapting your skincare routine for your current needs and be kind to yourself along the way!
Here are 3 of the most common skin concerns and some ideas you can try out to address each one:
Dry skin needs that extra bit of moisture and nourishment, and products can make a big difference in the health and appearance of dry skin. But start first with proper hydration internally!
Then address dry skin by incorporating a nourishing moisturizer, hydrating serum, short and lukewarm showers to avoid drying out your skin further, and proper cleansing of the skin at night with a nourishing nighttime skincare routine to help your skin soak in all the hydration overnight.
You can also add in a targeted face mask to boost hydration and give your dry skin a little extra TLC. Online for example, among the Blue Lagoon face masks, you can find specific masks for nourishing and soothing dry skin. After removing it, apply your moisturizer while your skin is still damp so it locks in any and all moisture.
Sensitive skin keeps you on your toes as you stay in tuned with weather, environmental stresses, overall health, and product impacts on your skin so you can care the best for your skin.
Some people find they are sensitive to specific things, and others find they just have sensitive skin all around. It is important to pay attention to what your skin responds to, and also remember that this may not always be consistent because sometimes sensitive skin just responds to one thing on a specific day!
Some care ideas to keep in mind are: staying hydrated, not overdoing it with skincare or makeup, removing sunscreen and makeup every night, and slowly introducing new products to see your skin’s response before continuing use.
Acne Prone Skin
Acne prone skin requires extra attention for the products you are putting on your skin and how you are treating it overall. There are many different factors that cause spots and acne prone skin, including overall health, stress, lack of sleep, genetics, hormones, etc.
So doing things like sanitizing your phone, washing makeup brushes, not wearing makeup to the gym, taking lukewarm water showers, and properly washing your skin without disrupting its natural barrier are all critical.
For additional support, speak with your doctor and perhaps a dermatologist as necessary to discuss a plan for the best care of your skin.
Remember to keep in mind that you could be doing everything you possibly can for your skin topically but there maybe are other factors that are impacting or heightening acne-prone skin so it’s worth looking internally as well!
