FIND THE RIGHT ROUTINE FOR A HEALTHY SKIN

Whether your skin is covered with acne, is itchy and red, or has brown spots on it, there is a skincare routine out there for you that will help you to have a balance and healthy skin.

 

But first, be aware of the facts: skin is the largest organ of our bodies… so it’s important that you take the advice of experts.

 

If you had heart problems, you’d consult a cardiologist.

 

If you had digesting problems, you’d consult a gastroenterologist.

 

If you want to know which skincare routine is best for you, you have to talk to professionals about it. 

 

WHY IS SKINCARE ROUTINE SO IMPORTANT?

 

When your skin is harmed, it’s extremely hard to go back.


Prevention is way easier than reversal so, when it comes to your skin, you are always better safe than sorry.

 

A lot of harmful factors such as UV rays, infrared radiation, pollution and stress may affect it and make it prematurely age.

 

Those can create wrinkles at a young age, overall dryness, dull complexion, weird spots on it… the list goes on!

 

When you are disciplined with your routine and use the right products, it neutralizes free radicals* caused by these harmful factors. Ultimately, it protects your skin and improves its appearance.

 

Of course, doing clinical treatments with professionals is a wise idea. Who are we to say it isn’t?

1. ACNE SKIN

Your skin is oily, has pimples and doesn’t really peel naturally. As you probably know, acneic skin is often caused by hormonal fluctuations and stress, which provoked an excess of sebum, dilated or clogged pores and blemishes.

 

What you need are products that will absorb the excess sebum to minimize shine, clean pores and prevent other imperfections.

 

Your ideal routine:

  • Use a cleanser for acne to clean your face, jawline, neck, front and behind ears (if you wore makeup during the day or sweat a lot, double wash it)
  • Apply a toner to remove excess oil, tone and hydrate your skin
  • Apply your treatment medication if your dermatologist prescribed you one
  • Moisturize it A LOT with the right products
  • ALWAYS protect your skin with a good sunscreen (FPS 50)

 

You can exfoliate GENTLY once a week.

2. DEHYDRATED SKIN WITH ROSACEA/BLOTCH

Does your skin feel itchy? Does it burn when you get out of the shower? Does it become red easily? It can be dehydrated with rosacea or blotch which makes it harder to treat.

 

Unlike acneic skin, your skin has a lack of sebum which causes dryness, skin rash and overall discomfort. Genetics may be responsible but, more often, external factors, such as sun exposure, cold weather, heating and stress, are behind your dehydrated skin.

 

What you need are products that will moisturize your skin and reduce the redness without causing more harm. All the products you use have to be mild to minimize irritation and calm your skin.

 

Your ideal routine:

  • First, always clean your face with a soft cleanser like milk or oil
  • Wait for a minutes to avoid the burning and stinging sensation
  • Apply a complexion correcting and hydration gel or serum
  • Apply a moisturizer or a natural oil to seal everything
  • ALWAYS protect your skin with a good sunscreen (FPS 50)

3. HYPERPIGMENTED SKIN

If some brown spots have appeared on your skin and keep appearing over the years, you might have hyperpigmentation. This skin discoloration is created by an excess of melanin (the natural pigmentation of your skin), which is caused by UV exposure, hormonal fluctuations (most of the time caused by a pregnancy, the pill or an IUD), past acne blemishes or trauma like sunburn.

 

What you need are products that will light up your complexion and prevent the stains from increasing. It’s also important to choose products that fit your skin type (oily, dry, something else?) and will help your hyperpigmentation.

 

Your ideal routine:

  • Clean your face with a clarifying cleanser
  • Apply a vitamin C serum
  • Apply a complexion correcting serum and a hydration serum
  • Apply moisturizer
  • ALWAYS Apply sunscreen (FPS 50) every day

No matter how problematic your skin is and how old you are, being consistent with your skincare routine is one of the most important things you can do if you want to age beautifully.

 

However, finding the appropriate routine isn’t as simple as it seems! Sometimes, you may think you have a certain skin type but the products you are using distort what your true skin type is.

 

We strongly suggest you visit a medico-esthetic clinic like Espace SKINS or see a dermatologist (if you have more serious issues) to find out what your skin type is and what to do about it.

 

Final tips: when you go to your rendezvous, be open minded and bring all the cosmetics you use so the experts can give you more suitable advice.

 

Your skin and your older-self already thank you for that!
