The skin of the face is considered the perfect canvas to show off a cute makeup look.
When it is in good condition, cared for, and prepared before applying cosmetic products such as foundation and other cosmetic products, the result will be perfect skin.
It is essential that from the age of 25, you start to take care of your skin using products appropriate to your needs and maintain a daily beauty routine if you want to always look young and radiant with or without makeup. Regardless of age, caring for and protecting the skin is an everyday thing. Especially when exposed to the sun, pollution, and daily changes in the weather.
Are you ready to show off an always youthful and radiant skin?
Below I will make a list of products that should make up your facial skincare kit:
1. Cream or cleansing gel
Choose a product that suits your skin type (oily, combination, or dry). Creams usually contain more moisturizing agents and are perfect for dry or very delicate skin. In the case of combination or oily skin, better use a cleansing gel with more detergents.
All facial cleansing creams are gentle but have ingredients that are capable of removing all dirt or oil from the skin.
Dermatologists do not recommend the use of soap on the face. For the rest of the body, soap works well. Soap is not recommended for the face due to the detergents, fragrances, and other properties that most soaps have.
Instead, facial cleansers are specially formulated for the delicate skin of the face. They generally have a low pH, which is more acidic but does not compromise the skin’s coating. Soaps, on the other hand, have a high pH and are more alkaline. Products that have high alkalinity tend to irritate the skin.
The face scrub is a substance that can be natural or prepared in a laboratory whose function is to remove all the dead cells from our skin to make it look beautiful always.
Exfoliation of the skin is an essential part of your beauty routine to eliminate dead cells and impurities and, thus, look radiant and beautiful skin.
Exfoliation is not a treatment that you should do daily since you will not be able to dry and flake your skin. It is recommended that you do it yourself, in the bathroom, every week, or 15 days, although you can also go to a specialized beauty center. If you are constant, in a few days, you will see how your skin changes, looks splendid and without blemishes.
Facial tonics are astringent used in the cleansing and exfoliation process of the skin. Toners help remove excess oils and bacteria that the cleanser sometimes fails to withdraw from the skin, and many women love this product because it leaves the skin feeling fresh and clean.
In our basic beauty routine, there are specific steps that we should never forget: Wash + Tone + Hydrate. The first and last steps are almost inevitable, but many women are completely unaware of the benefits of using a facial toner, and many others don’t know how to use it.
But you must look for a facial toner that is suitable for your skin type. It is essential that you look for an alcohol-free tonic, otherwise you will end up with super dry skin (for a few days), because your skin, to replace the oil and fats that you eliminated, will produce double sebum.
- It balances the pH levels in the skin.
- Remove excess oil and shine.
- Refines and unifies skin tone.
- It reduces the size of the pores.
- Reduces redness and irritation.
4. Special Serums
Facial serums are cosmetic products that are used in conjunction with the moisturizer, have a higher concentration of active ingredients, and are applied once or twice a day, preferably at night.
Wearing beautiful skin requires time and care for it, especially as the years go by. Depending on your skin type and age, more or less hydration is needed, so serums (or serums in English) are an excellent alternative for all skin types. Face Serums are lightweight, absorbs very quickly, and leaves skin instantly smooth and smooth. The best ones have antioxidants and ingredients like retinol to fight the signs of aging and wrinkles. They can also help make pores less noticeable. It is recommended to use these products from the age of 30, which is when the natural aging process begins.
5. Moisturizing creams (face) or Rose Water
This step is essential for any skin type. Verify that the cream of your choice has a sun protection factor (SPF) of number 20 or higher, even in winter. This way, you will avoid sunspots and premature aging.
Facial creams prevent the skin from becoming dry, dull, rough without elasticity, and with a tendency to peeling, widespread in the wintertime.
Face creams are one of the most widely used cosmetic products for both men and women. It is not only an aesthetic issue, but one of skincare since environmental agents such as wind, sun, and pollution, and internal agents such as stress and the hormonal state deteriorate our skin and protecting and repairing it is one of the functions that face creams have.
Creams have specific functions (spots, wrinkles, etc.), but the truth is that it only attenuates this type of situation, but does not eliminate the effects.
On the other hand, rose water also hydrates the skin, and its use is more recommended in the case of oily skin that needs something lighter and non-greasy to maintain a certain amount of water and look fresh and radiant.
6. Eye contour creams
The eye contour moisturizer will help keep the delicate skin around the eye hydrated to defend it against aging processes better and keep in mind that it suffers from lazy microcirculation and accumulation of toxins that give rise to visible signs of tiredness such as dark circles and the bags.
A good eye contour is just as important as the application of a correct moisturizer and should be one more product in your daily beauty care kit.
A good eye contour will allow you to get a much brighter look, with more unified and hydrated skin.
7. Lip balm
The lip balm is the complement that should never be missing in our kit. Having well-hydrated lips is necessary, but also creates a feeling of freshness and well-being.
It is perfect for preventing lips from being dry or chapped, and its benefits can be summarized in three, mainly: it protects nourishes and repairs.
It is essential to choose a lip balm with protection against UVA rays, since the skin of the lips is susceptible and has almost no melanin, so it is very unprotected against the action of sunlight.
Exposure to the sun is necessary for the life of human beings because it helps us fix calcium to have strong and healthy bones, and also lifts our mood.
Sunscreens are products for external use that are classified according to the substances they contain, which act as a protective barrier for the skin against solar radiation.
- A good sunscreen must have the following benefits:
- The excellent absorption capacity of ultraviolet radiation
- Resistance to external agents, such as sweat or water
- Do not cause skin irritation
- Be stable in the sun
9. Makeup removers
The makeup remover is a product that will help us to remove all the makeup carefully that we use on our face and should be chosen to ensure that this is so and that our eyes and face are free of any makeup residue.
It is necessary that when we remove makeup, we first start with the eyes until we thoroughly remove all the shadow makeup and mascara and continue with the rest of the face so as not to mix the products used for the face with the products used for the eyes and even more afternoons—time to remove makeup.
10. Micellar Water
Micellar water, as its name suggests, is made up of micelles, which are particles that trap dirt.
Micellar water is known for its makeup removal function, but since it does not contain oils, it does not remove all the remains, primarily if you have used very strong or waterproof products. In these cases, you should also use your usual makeup remover.
These products usually have extracts of chamomile, aloe vera, or roses, which also can calm the skin, and therefore are very good to use as a tonic for those with susceptible skin.
It also serves as a makeup primer since, despite leaving your skin more hydrated and clean, it will make it look better and last longer.
Now that you know which are the facial products that will allow you to show off young and beautiful skin, it is worth investing in quality products because the results you will obtain will be incredible, and your skin will always thank you.
