How To Create A 3 Step Facial Skin Care Routine

by Bonnie Gordon

Every day, you should be washing your face. A great deal of oil and dirt builds up throughout the day and if it isn't washed away, it can clog pores and make your skin appear blotchy and cause irritating that can create more wrinkles making you look older. To ensure that you are washing and caring for your skin in the best way possible, you will want to create a 3 step facial skin care routine. Here's how:

Pick a Cleanser and Use Correctly:

The first thing that you need to do is pick a cleanser that is best for your skin type. If you have dry skin, then you want a cream based cleanser that will help to moisturize the skin instead of dry it out. If you have oily skin, then you want to choose a cleanser that is gel based. This will prevent extra oil from building up on your skin while still keeping it moisturized. The cleanser should be applied in circular motions on your skin when it is wet. Don't forget to apply the cleanser around the nose and hairline (areas that most people forget). Once you have applied the cleanser, rinse it off with cool water.

Choose a Toner and Use Correctly:

Toners are great to use after cleansing your face because it helps to temporarily shrink pores to prevent dirt and oil from easily becoming trapped. You want to choose a toner that has a moisturizing effect if you have dry skin and one that has a higher alcohol content if you have oily skin. This is also going to remove traces of cleanser left on your face to make your skin appear more even in tone. To apply, use a cotton ball and remember to get around your nose and hairline with this, as well. 

Choose a Moisturizer and Use Correctly:

Even if you have oily skin, you want to use moisturizer because this will prevent your face from becoming more oily throughout the day because your body won't feel the need to excrete as much. The best moisturizer to use is one with SPF to help protect your skin from the sun. Sun exposure is what causes wrinkles and your skin to age more rapidly. You should apply the moisture all the way down to your neck, as well to prevent wrinkles here, as well. 

By creating a proper 3 step facial skin care routine, you can be sure that your skin will stay young and beautiful. If you need further help diagnosing your skin type and choosing the right cleansers and moisturizers, you should consider seeing your dermatologist or a place like Advanced Urgent Care
