  • The first and most important step when starting a 
skincare regimen is to find out your skin type.
    The first and most important step when starting a
    skincare regimen is to find out your skin type.
  • This
    helps you choose the right products to use so that
    your skin benefits most, in the shortest possible time.
    Most cosmetics, cleansers, toners, facial masks and
    other products have the skin type they are best suited for mentioned prominently on the packaging. When
    shopping for products, make sure to pay special attention to this information.

  • Another advantage of knowing your skin type is that you know which ingredients are likely to be harmful to
    your skin. For example, for those with sensitive skin, apricot scrub is best avoided because it is too
    aggressive and harsh. Salicylic acid is good for acne prone skin. For those with oily skin, products
    containing salicylic acid are also a good choice. To make a judicious choice of products, you do need to look
    at their ingredients. Knowing your skin type lets you pick products with all the right ingredients to give you
    healthy and great looking skin.

  • Caring for Normal Skin

    Normal skin is the easiest to care for. The best products to use for this skin type are those that support
    normal skin functions. Of course, even normal skin does break out at rare times or develops rashes or skin
    blemishes when exposed to certain products. But this skin type usually bounces back to its normal healthy
    glow with some help from you with the right skin care products.

  • To care for normal skin you need a gentle cleanser which also works as your makeup remover. Keep your
    skin well hydrated with moisturizers and toning gels. Use a hydrating gel mask once a week to keep the
    skin supple and to keep dry skin problems well away. Serums and day creams to nourish and protect the
    skin during daytime and firming eye creams, night time creams and oils allow normal skin to repair cell
    damage and regain a healthy glow for the day ahead.

  • Caring for Dry Skin

    Dry skin requires extra special care, especially during winter months. Regular and effective cleansing is very
    important for dry skin since clogged pores further reduce the available sebum. Use a mild cleansing milk to
    ensure that the dryness is not worsened by the cleansing process. Avoid washing your face too many times
    as it strips the skin of essential oils and moisture. Cleansing once before applying makeup and once at night

  • is sufficient. Cleansers that have good moisture retention are good choices for dry skin. Avoid alcohol
    based toners that dry out your skin. Use a toner with honey or mint instead.

    Use nourishing creams generously. Pick creams that have vitamin E to give your dry skin new life. Vitamin E
    also postpones the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Under eye creams are also good options. But if you
    are using a heavier one during the daytime take care to remove it thoroughly at bedtime.

  • Oil massages with natural oil (e.g.: olive/coconut) before bath help your skin stay hydrated after the wash.
    Take short warm showers and keep away from all bath soap bars (except those with high fat content).
    Apply a rich moisturizer right after your bath so that it can penetrate your skin most effectively.

  • Caring for Oily Skin

    Oily skin has a natural barrier against moisture loss which is why you can avoid rich moisturizers for this
    skin type. However, some oily skin types may be prone to dryness in winter months. Then moisturizing is
    necessary.

  • Proper cleansing is a very important part of your oily skin care regimen as to prevent acne. Cleansing clears
    your pores and ensures that there is no debris clogging them leading to blackheads, infections and other
    common oily skin problems. Use oil control cleansers (e.g.: with activated charcoal) or those containing
    salicylic acid and avoid those containing sulfates.

  • People with oily skin may, if necessary, carry out exfoliation twice a week. This removes buildup over the
    epidermis. Moisturizing serums are better choices than lotions or creams. If your skin becomes dry with the
    serum use one that hydrates.

    Although oily skin does have its own natural protection, you should apply sunscreen when you go out.
    Avoid sunscreen- moisturizer combos and opt for lightweight sunscreen-only products. For your weekly
    facials, use clay based masks that absorb the excess oil from your skin.
