Skin care products plays an additional care to our skin other than our diet and health. Skin care products penetrates externally into our skin to treat and maintain it depending on its properties and purpose. It is crucial to treat your major skin trouble first and later for other skin concerns. Let’s see how we could work this out.

For those who uses makeup, always remove your makeup especially before heading to bed. It’s alright to skip once in a blue moon but if you continuously repeating this habit, this will not do good for your skin. Every makeup has different properties and we all love how makeup could do wonders to make us look beautiful but once these makeup applied onto your skin, it oxides and the properties works on selective period. Once the properties expires from its selective period, it becomes redundant and since it is still on your skin, it will clog your pores. Just take that your pores needs to breathe with the goodness of skin care product instead of makeup.

To find the right product that works perfectly for you is really tough, even I faced the same matter. This is where you need to know your ingredients that helps to fight your skin trouble or maybe sensitive to it. Salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are the common ingredients to fight acne but that doesn’t meant it will suit you, some will need to opt for organic or gentle products. For cleansers, we don’t really need expensive ones unless they are remarkably good for you. The reason for not recommending expensive cleansers is we use it in such a short time and rinses it away right after. Massaging it onto your skin for 2-3 minutes will help to draw out dirt to unclog your pores.

Many has a misconception that moisturisers are always oily and sticky after applying.  It really depends on which type of moisturiser that you’re looking at. If you’re afraid in resulting oily and sticky feeling, try to look out for oil-free, gel or water-based moisturiser. There is a difference between oily and moist. Moisturised skin should not have that oily deposit on your skin surface and if your skin is not receiving enough moisture, it will produces oil to keep your skin moisturised. So which is your pick?

No matter which type of skin you have, sun protection is always important before you head out for the day. Again, it has formulation of oil-free or water-based sun protection products. Excessive sun exposure will lead to pigmentation, premature ageing skin or what worse, skin cancer. Sun protection also helps to preserve the properties of previous skin care products applied. Sometimes we get post-acne scars, sun protection helps to prevent the scarring to get any darker.

Facial treatments is a bonus care for your skin which also known as an extensive skin care in your beauty regime. Acne skin needs a lot of attention and by using suitable facial treatment, it also helps to relief your skin from acne. If facial treatments offered from beauty salons are too expensive, try DIYs like Honey Oat Mask, Charcoal Mask and Deep Cleansing Clay Mask. If your option is beauty salon, select salon which is recognize by its brand and results for assurance that your treatments are worthy. If your option is DIY, understand how the ingredients could be beneficial to your skin.

In addition, you need to keep the good work on to maintain your skin and try to avoid touching your face as often because you touches many other things around and might transfer the bacteria or dirt to your skin.
