Step 1: Know Your Skin Type

Who doesn’t want great-looking skin? Start by knowing your skin type. Then you’ll know how to take care of it and what skin care routing fits you.

  • Dry skin is flaky, scaly, or rough.
  • Oily skin is shiny, greasy, and may have big pores.
  • Combination skin is dry in some spots (cheeks) and oily in others (forehead, nose, and chin).
  • Sensitive skin may sting, burn, or itch after you use some makeup or other products.
  • Normal skin is balanced, clear, and not sensitive.
 Step 2: Cleaning Normal/Combo Skin

The most important step in skincare routine is cleaning your skin so don’t just grab whatever soap (read why you shouldn’t use soap on your face here)is in the shower or at the sink to wash your face. You don’t have to buy fancy, expensive products. You just need to find skincare product that works for you normally a skin cleanser works like the lemon skin cleanser . Use a gentle cleanser or soap and wash — don’t scrub your face. Rinse with plenty of warm water, then pat dry.

Step 2: Cleaning Dry Skin

If you have dry skin, use a gentle cleanser that doesn’t have alcohol or fragrance. Those ingredients can dry your skin out even more. Gently wash your skin, then rinse with plenty of warm water. Don’t use hot water because it removes the natural oils from your face faster. Try exfoliating once a week to get rid of flaky skin cells. It will make your skin look clearer and more even.For a skin cleanser for dry skin try our lemon skin cleanser you can get it here and for exfoliating try our dermaperfection clay mask.

Step 2: Cleaning Oily Skin

If your skin is oily, use an oil-free foaming cleanser, dermaperfection skin cleanser.to wash your face. Rinse with plenty of warm water. You may want to use a toner or astringent after you’ve washed your face, but be careful because it might irritate your skin. They can remove extra oil, making your face less shiny, and help keep skin clean.

Step 2: Cleaning Sensitive Skin

If your skin is sensitive, start by washing it with a liquid wash to stabilize the  ph of the face then wash it with a very gentle cleanser like the dermaperfection skin cleanser. Be sure to pat — don’t rub — dry. Exfoliating may irritate sensitive skin. Try not to use products that have alcohol, soap, acid, or fragrance. Instead, look on the label for calming ingredients like aloe, chamomile, green tea polyphenols, and oats. The fewer ingredients in a skincare product, the happier your face may be.

Step 3: Moisturize

You may think you’re too young to need moisturizer — or your skin is too oily — but all skin needs moisture. Moisturizers help keep your skin from drying out. Use it every day, no matter what skin type you have. Apply it while your skin is still damp from washing or rinsing to help seal in moisture. If you have acne or your skin is oily, find a moisturizer that is lightweight and oil-free, so it doesn’t block your pores like the forever bright that is just made for oily skin.

Step 4: Put on Sunscreen

Your moisturizer may already have sunscreen in it and if not you should try our fairtone plus cream that has spf. But it’s a good idea to use a separate sunscreen, too. The sun can damage your skin in only 15 minutes. Even though you’re young, you can get skin cancer. Look for sunscreen that works against both UVA and UVB rays with an SPF of at least 30. Wear it every day, even if it’s not sunny and even if it’s cold. The sun’s rays can reflect off water, sand, and snow. Reapply every two hours.

When Should You Wash?

You can dry your skin by washing it too much, so once a day is fine for most people. In the morning, rinse your face with lukewarm water. Use a soft towel to pat it — not rub it — dry. At night, washing with a cleanser or gentle soap helps get rid of the day’s dirt and makeup. If you exercise, play sports, or have PE, you may want to wash your face afterward with a gentle cleanser. Sweat can clog your pores and make acne worse.

Don’t Wear Makeup to Bed

All the above mentioned skin care  routine will go to waste if you sleep with your make up on as when you’re tired, it can be tempting to go to bed without washing your face. But leaving makeup on your skin can clog your pores and cause acne. So use a gentle skin cleanser like the lemon skin cleanser or makeup remover to wash it off. Use a soft wash cloth or cotton pads. If you use acne cream, now’s a good time to put it on — when your face is clean and when you’re not going to be putting on makeup.
