It is easy to get overwhelmed with skincare especially when products are being released almost every week.  Today, it is a “must-have” ingredient, and tomorrow something else. With all these products being released, it would be really hard to determine which product you really need and which is just a trend. To guide you through all these, I have put together some tips that will help you on your journey to healthy and happy skin all year long.

  • Make sure you are layering your products correctly; The order in which you apply your skincare products is very important. When products are applied correctly, your skin receives the full benefit of each product, and if not, not only will your skin care regimen be ineffective, it could make it worse by causing irritation. An easy rule for you to follow when applying your products is to go from the thinnest consistency to the thickest consistency.
  • Exfoliation is Key; Exfoliation definitely helps in improving the appearance of your skin because it removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin leaving your skin feeling smooth.

Also, exfoliating your skin helps to unclog your pores, making it a lot easier for your skincare products to penetrate into your skin.

There are 2 main ways to exfoliate your skin; physical exfoliation (using scrubs), and chemical exfoliation (using acids like AHAs and BHAs).

  • Learn to listen to your skin; Listening to your skin is super important. It’s going to save you a lot of time, money, and stress. For example, instead of getting upset about irritation or a breakout, ask yourself why you are breaking out, that can be your skin’s way of letting you know that whatever product you’re using may be too harsh, or probably, you may have changed your diet.

Once you learn to read the signs, it makes taking care of your skin easier and maybe all you need to put an end to the skin issues you have been having.

The last tip which is a bonus tip but is super important is

Sunscreen is a must; whether it’s on cloudy days, or in the winter, your skin should always be protected. Applying sunscreen daily will protect your skin from sun damage. A large percentage of how your skin ages is directly related to its exposure to the sun and you can control that.  Just apply sunscreen every day. Your skin will thank you for it.
