Good skin means good skin care. No matter what your complexion is like at the moment you too can have good skin if you follow a regular skin care routine that is compatible with the type of skin that you have. But, what constitutes a good skin care routine?
Good skin care involves the use of five skin care products, the first of these being a water-soluble cleanser. This should be used every day to deep clean your pores, freeing them of grime and sweat.
Secondly, you'll need an exfoliating product. This gently removes dead skin cells from any type of skin, whether dry or oily, revealing smoother more supple skin cells beneath. Exfoliating products which consist of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) are best.
For people with spots or blemishes the third product should be a disinfectant toner, such as a toner containing the active ingredient hydrogen peroxide or benzoyl peroxide. Those without blemishes should just use an irritant-free toner. Skin toners protect the pores that you have just cleansed and help to prevent them from becoming infected.
The last two elements needed for good skin care are often combined into one product. A moisturiser or foundation containing a sunscreen of SPF 15 restores your skin's suppleness and provides protection from the sun's harmful UV rays, the affects of which are known to accelerate the ageing process.
