In order to make sure that the product is working effectively for you, you must know how to make the right use of all those products ranging from face wash to face mask. Over massaging the product or applying it the wrong way can cost you your precious beautiful skin. This is why we have formed a guide for you explaining how to make the most of your skincare products.
Washing and cleansing your face is the most important part of your skincare routine and that certainly can’t be done without the right face wash. Firstly, you should pick a face wash that is suitable for your skin type to make sure that it is working favorably for you. Whether it’s you starting your day or ending it, the face wash is the first thing that you use in your skincare routine. The purpose of using a face wash is to help your facial skin in getting rid of dirt and grime but to make sure that it’s doing its job perfectly you should follow the right steps. Firstly, you should dampen your face and then take the face wash on the palm of your hands and then massage it gently on your face for about half a minute. After that, you can rinse your face with cold water.
Scrub is the most tricky part of your skincare routine. One wrong move and you can end up with irritated skin and sometimes it can also result in open pores which can be too dangerous for your facial skin. You should avoid making a few mistakes while scrubbing your face and that includes over-exfoliating, doing it too firmly, and leaving the important zones of your face. Take a teeny weeny amount of scrub on your finger and gently massage it over your wet face in a circular motion. Make sure to cover all the blackhead prone areas while scrubbing your face. People with combination and oily skin can scrub their face thrice a week while others with dry, normal and sensitive skin can do it twice a week.
Moisturizer is one of the most important steps of skincare routine. Take your favorite moisturizer and apply a generous amount of it on your face. You can put the product on your skin when it is still a little damp to make sure that it penetrates deeper into the pores. Be very gentle while slathering the product and after applying the moisturizer, tap your skin to allow better absorption.
Of course, your morning skincare routine isn’t really complete until you have applied the sunscreen. Not only it protects your skin harsh UVB rays but it also makes sure that no radical damage is caused to your skin. Also, you should apply the product on a daily basis and not intermittently. No matter if it’s sunny, overcast, or rainy; you cannot afford to miss out on applying sunscreen throughout the year. Keep reapplying it every two to three hours to make sure that your skin remains protected.
Sundays are for skin pampering and the best way to treat your skin is by putting on a face mask. Applying a face mask not only relaxes your facial skin but also leaves your skin feeling cool, clear and glowing. Just know that applying too much of the product isn’t going to give you any better results. And also make sure to not leave the product on your face longer than prescribed time on the packaging.
