Determine your skin type
Oily, dry, combination, acne-prone... determining your skin type can be overwhelming, especially if it's ever-changing with the seasons. Our best advice in regards to your skin type is to book an appointment with a professional. They will be able to determine your skin type and set you on a path to discover products that are right for your skin.
It's important to cleanse your skin morning and night to remove all of the dirt, oil, and makeup that has built up on your face throughout the day. Cleansers come in a variety of forms- foaming, gel, cream, milk- and they can be used with or without water. When looking for a cleanser it's important to find one that is gentle enough for your skin but still effective in removing all the dirt and impurities.
Exfoliating is an important step in any skincare routine, especially if you have oily or acne-prone skin. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and debris from the surface of the skin, which can clog pores and lead to breakouts. There are a variety of exfoliators on the market, from physical scrubs to chemical peels, so it's important to find one that is best suited for your skin type and needs.
No matter what your skin type, moisturizing should be part of your daily skincare routine. Moisturisers help to protect the skin from the sun, keep it hydrated, and can even help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. When choosing a moisturiser, be sure to select one that is suited for your skin type and contains ingredients that you know are beneficial for your skin.
Along with moisturising, sunscreen should also be part of your daily skincare routine. Sunscreen helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays and can help reduce the risk of sunburns, skin cancer, and premature aging.
Be sure to choose a sunscreen that is right for your skin type and provides broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Make sure you check out our SPF 50+ Prep and Set Bundle from The Quick Flick to cover all your sunscreen needs!
Treat it like you mean it
Just as important as finding skincare products that are best suited for your skin, it's also essential to treat yourself with some self-care now and again. Try setting aside a little time each day to relax, read or catch up on some sleep, and be sure to eat well so your skin is getting the nourishment it needs from the inside out!
This beginner's guide to skincare is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to taking care of your skin. By following these simple steps, you're on your way to discovering what works best for you and your skin type!
Skincare can be a daunting task, but with a little knowledge and some trial and error, you'll be on your way to finding the perfect products for you and your skin. So get out there and start exploring- your largest organ will thank you!
