How to build a good skin care routine
Irrespective of what your skin type is, an everyday skin care routine should be everyone’s top priority, in order to maintain your overall skin health and thus improve specific areas of concern like scarring, acne, pigmentation and dark spots. Your daily skin care routine should consist of 4 basic steps. These can be done once in the morning and once before bed.
Always try using the best skin care products available. Choose a cleanser which does not leave your skin very tight after washing. Try cleaning your face just twice or maybe once, if you have a dry skin and you do not put makeup, as you can end up losing your skin’s natural oils.
Note, even oily skin needs moisturizer, but try to use one that is gel-based, light-weight, does not block your pores and non-comedogenic. For dry skin, use more of cream-based moisturizers from Korean skin care products. Many popular brands will label their skin products as cream or gel on their packaging.
A good serum containing vitamin C or peptides or growth factors are best suited in the morning, under sunscreen. During the night, prescription retinoid or retinol work best.
You should apply sunscreen with 30 SPF, about 15 minutes before going out, as it takes some time to activate. If you have darker skin tone, you need to apply more sun protection as hyperpigmentation is much harder to correct. Try using Korean skin care products, as they offer broad-spectrum UVB/UVA protection.
Always use products which best fit your skin type as well as sensitivity. Remember to read the labels properly. Few skin care products, like prescription retinoid or retinols should be applied at night.
