While it is important to find a routine that works, it is more important to embed these 4 things in your skincare routine.
Key Elements of your SkinCare Routine
- Cleanse: Find a good cleanser that works for your skin. One that your skin responds well to. Once you find it, stick with it. In the morning, you can splash lukewarm water on your skin to remove the excess oil accumulated from your nightly moisturizing. Keep it simple.
- Exfoliate: Most people skip this step in their weekly moisturizing. Don’t. If you properly exfoliate your skin, you will see the difference. It is often noticeable.
- Moisturize: Don’t wait till your skin is tight and crying for moisture before you do this. However, don’t over moisturize, it clogs your pores. A moisturizer attracts moisture and protects the skin by forming a barrier that holds in the water that is already there. Get a good moisturizer.
- Protect: Even black skin needs protection from the sun. Get great sunscreen and protect your skin from the harshness of the sun. The sun is the number one cause of wrinkles! Purchase 2 moisturizers, one for the night and one for the day that includes UV protection.
These 4 elements are key to your skincare routine! Take them seriously
