National Cleanse Your Skin Week - Daily Skin Routine

CleanseYourSkin

Hi Beauties,

I hope you have been enjoying all of the great blogs I have released thus far this week for National Cleanse Your Skin Week! If you have missed any of the blogs, no worries. You can view/read them here.

Alright, we are officially on Day 3! We're going to discuss which products you should be using on daily basis. This blog will be divided into two as I like to keep them short and to the point.

Without further ado, let's jump into the daily products we should be using on our skin!

Daily Routine

Cleanser
A cleanser is the first product in your skincare routine and should be used at least twice a day morning and night (maybe more depending on your lifestyle). Cleansers are used to remove dirt, oil, makeup, etc. from your skin. This step must be performed to prepare your skin to receive other products you will apply in your routine.

How to use your cleansers properly:
Apply your cleanser to wet skin. How you cleanse your skin is up to you. Hands, cloth, brush, etc. Apply it in a circular motion on your face, chin and neck for at least 30 seconds but no more than 60, then rinse. You want to cleanse your skin twice (double cleansing method) if you are using products targeting a skin issue such as acne. We will discuss these products in tomorrow's blog.
Toner
Facial toner is basically the in-between skincare step. It's meant to be used after washing your face but before using your serum or moisturizer. Face toners prep the skin for moisturizers and serum while getting rid of excess excess oil and stubborn dirt or makeup leftover on your face after you wash it. Keep in mind, toners are not a replacement for washing your face.

How to apply a toner:
Once your skin has been properly cleansed, apply toner to a cotton pad and apply to your face, chin and neck. Toner come in all forms (liquid, spray, cream etc.) No matter which one you have, ensure you apply it all over you skin.

Serums

A serum is a skincare product you can apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing with the intent of delivering powerful ingredients directly into the skin. Serums are particularly suited to this task because it is made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients.

These high concentration of active ingredients have been scientifically proven to tackle specific skincare issues (think dark spots, blemishes, free radical protection, etc.). Actives are usually suspended in a gooey, gel-like substance–this can be anything from water to silicon or even oil.

How to use a serum:

Serums should be applied after you apply your toner. You apply it before or after the toner dries, and before you apply your moisturizer.

I hope you this blog was informative for you. No this isn't new information but sometimes we need to better understand why these products are important to our skincare routine. I know when I was younger, I admired celebrities skin, thinking it was due to having them having money. That's not entirely true. Using pH balanced products on your skin and using products that tackle your skincare issues is all most of us need.

Make sure to check out part two of this blog where I discuss moisturizers, SPF and eye creams as part of your daily routine.

See you in the next blog!

    @Kisha: Girl yes! Serums are the business! You need to get into it, lol. Serums are the products that give you a high percentage of active ingredients for anything you are wanting to work on. Whether moisture, acne, discoloration, etc. serums are where it’s at. And yes, I’m already on it.

    @Georgina: I’m so happy to hear that. There’s a lot of information out there that’s it’s easy for one to get confused or overwhelmed. Keep focused on the goal!😉

    I’m loving this blog series. What a myth buster. The way you broke this down makes it easier for me to understand to and see where I’m may gone wrong.
