Depending on your skin type, it’s important to wash your face at least once per day. If you wear makeup, be sure to remove as much makeup as possible and then cleanse the skin. There are many different types of cleansers that can be customized to your complexion’s needs. Cleansing helps to remove dirt from your pores to keep skin acne-free and bright. 


Serums are made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deep into the skin. Serums provide a high concentration of active ingredients to address skin concerns like acne and wrinkles. Vitamins are often combined into serums and can help you to add vitamin C into your skincare to brighten and protect, just like how it works to protect your immune system. To be introduced to the best retinol or serum for your skin type, it is important to talk to a skincare specialist so that you can get a product that will address your specific concerns.

Moisturize and Protect

For the last step, it is important to finish with a moisturizer. Moisturizers combat both dryness and dullness by balancing the moisture in the skin. If you’re going outdoors or plan to sit by a window all day, it’s also important to add an SPF to protect against sun damage. 

By following these three simple steps you are well on your way to radiant skin and a self-care routine that will keep your mind at ease. You can contact a local esthetician to find out what products would work best for your skin type.
