The ultimate skincare goal is to have beautiful, healthy glowing skin. Achieving glowy-looking skin can be difficult without the help of makeup. But it isn't impossible. Today, we will talk about the four steps that will help you achieve glowing skin, no matter what skin type you have!
Use cleansing milks
Cleansing your skin is vital to achieving healthy skin. However, some cleansers can be harsh on the skin and disrupt our skin's natural pH balance. This is why, using cleansing milks is a great gentle option to clean your face. Cleansing milks are great for all skin types but are especially great for dry and sensitive skin types. However, those with acne-prone skin should be wary of using cleansing milks and might benefit from a cleanser that targets acne. Cleansing milks are made out of natural fats or animal-based fats. It has a lightweight milky texture and leaves your face feeling soft and clean. Cleansing milks are usually made without additives or foaming ingredients and don't need water to emulsify. Cleansing milks can remove makeup, dirt, grime, and sunscreen off of your face. It's best to use a cleansing milk in the morning and double cleanse at night.
Double cleanse with cleansing oil
We have all heard of the double cleansing method, and it's not just a trend; it's here to stay. Double cleansing is an excellent method to incorporate into your nighttime routine. The first step is to use a cleansing oil on a dry face; this will eliminate all dirt, grime, and makeup off your face. Then the second step is to use a water-based cleanser on damp skin that suits your skin type. Next, you can use a cleanser to either smooth or exfoliate or hydrate your skin. However, it would be best if you tried to avoid harsh cleansers that could strip your skin's natural oils away. For normal skin, you should use a moisturizing or creamy cleanser. You should use a gentle, non-irritating cleanser for dry or sensitive skin. You should use a lightweight cleanser that tackles acne and excess oil for oily or acne-prone skin. You should use cleansers to get rid of excess oil for combination skin but are still hydrating for your dry spots.
Exfoliate your skin with chemical exfoliants
Using AHA or BHA in your routine is a great way to get rid of those dead skin cells! AHAs and BHAs can remove dead skin cells and improve skin texture. Typically AHAs improve fine lines and wrinkles, discolored skin, age spots, and enlarged pores. While BHAs improve sun-damaged skin and the appearance of acne. AHAs are usually best for dry to normal skin types, and BHAs are best for normal to oily or combination skin types. You must consult your dermatologist before adding any active ingredients into your routine and always conduct a patch test before full application of the product. Once you incorporate AHAs or BHAs into your routine, it's best to start slowly and use it once a week and gradually increase your usage.
Use vitamin C in your routine
Vitamin C is a super ingredient in skincare products. It's the reason for glowy-looking skin, as it can even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of those pesky dark spots. We found the best way to incorporate vitamin C into your routine is to use essence or a serum. Both essences and serums can penetrate the skin deeply, increasing the chances of seeing your results quickly. When using AHAs and BHAs and vitamin C, it's best to use vitamin C during the day and follow up with a good sunscreen. And to use AHAs and BHAs at night time following a hydrating moisturizer.
