Daily Skin Care Routine

Hey ladies, I wanted to do a little note about the importance of caring for your skin daily. There are four main stages of care.

1. Cleanse - using a daily FACE cleanser is vital to removing dirt and other impurities from the surface of your skin. Cleansers such as those from St Ives, Clean & Clear or Aveeno can be used.

2. Tone - user a toner such as Witchazel or Astringent is also very important as not all the dirt and makeup (if any was worn) was fully removed from the skin so this is where the toner comes in. Witchazel and Astringent are similar but differ in that an Astringent contains alcohol which can be very dehydrating for people with Dry Skin or irritating for people with Sensitive Skin. Benjamins and Bunny's Witchazel can be used and Astringents from Clean & Clear and Olay can be used.

3. Moisture & Protect - applying a moisturizer containing SPF 15 or more is crucial to adding water back to the skin after the cleansing and toning and also to protect the skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Having oily skin does not mean you have water in your skin. Your skin CAN be oily and dehydrated, so its crucial to add back the moisture to the face. When you starve the skin of water it will produce more oil to compensate for the lack of moisture. This will cause your face to be oilier.

I hope this was help.

Take care.
