One of my New Year's resolutions was to take extra care of my skin, and I wanted to start a skincare routine but I had so many questions, like what products should I buy? In what order I'm supposed to use them? What is a serum? and many more.
In order to do it right, I've decided to visit a dermatologist and she gave me a simple advise: cleanse, treat and moisturize.
Cleansing is the basic first step of any good routine. The way you do it and the products you use are very important, always choose a cleanser that fits your skin type and be gentle, is your skin, embrace it and love it.
Also, remember, every night you must clean your skin (yes, again), always take off your makeup and remove any dirt and oil out of your pores.
In order to treat your skin properly, you can use Toner and Serums. Using toner helps you to balance your pH, especially now that we have to use face masks all the time. Serums are very helpful in order to reverse all the sun and pollution damage.
After you've cleaned and treated your skin, is very important to moisturize to keep your skin hydrated and fresh; during daytime, she recommended me to use a light moisturizer that will soak faster. At nighttime you can use a heavier coverage to create a barrier and seal ingredients for a glowy skin the next day.
My dermatologist told me the most important step in my daily skincare is the sunscreen, you have to use it in order to see how the rest of the products work, she explained me that the Sun is the number one reason why skin ages.
Even if you work indoors, you must use sunscreen daily, I was shocked when she told that also the computer light affects your skin,and of course, sunscreen is my new BFF.
I committed to myself to follow this steps and I really hope to see my skin healthier and prettier for a longer period of time. I hope this little blog helps you and inspire you to take care of your face and love yourself.
