skincare: how to make your skin perfect
“Investing in your skin is a lifetime commitment, and the earlier you start, the better the results.”
If you’re like me, you’ve been using the same cleanser and moisturizer for a while. But that’s not enough! You want to do more to your skin or do makeup, and I’m here to help. Follow these steps and you can have glowing skin in no time.
Know your skin type.
If you’re not sure what skin type you have, don’t worry–it’s easy to find out. Just follow these steps:
- Gather some products that might work for your skincare type. For example, if you have dry or combination skin and are looking for a moisturizer with SPF protection, consider getting one of those instead of an oil-free serum or moisturizer with no added benefits (i.e., all-natural).
- Apply whatever product(s) you’ve chosen over your entire face (avoiding close contact with lips). Let them absorb into the skin before moving on to another application area or vice versa; this way they’ll last longer than if they were applied directly onto both sides of your face at once!
Pick the right products for your skin type.

skincare type is a big factor in how well a product works for you, so it’s important to look at what kinds of products are available before you make your purchase. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, look for an oil-free moisturizer; if dryer than usual, try an exfoliator instead of an oil-based moisturizer; and if sensitive but also oily (or prone to breakouts) find something that won’t irritate or clog pores. Some ingredients like fragrance can also be irritating–so read labels carefully and test out multiple products before committing to a full bottle!
“Skincare isn’t just about looking good, it’s about feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin.”
Use a gentle cleanser.
The first step to making your skincare perfect is using a gentle cleanser. Make sure you choose a cleanser that is suitable for your skin type and use it regularly.
There are many different types of cleansers in the market today, so there’s no need to feel overwhelmed by all the options available! Just look for ones that feel good on your face and leave it feeling clean without stripping away any moisture from your pores or leaving behind residue after rinsing off with warm water.
Exfoliate gently, once a week is enough.
Exfoliating gently, once a week is enough. Once you’ve started exfoliating, it’s important to keep doing so regularly. The more often you do it, the better your skin will look–but don’t overdo it! It should only be done once per week. If you’re using an aggressive scrub or peel as part of your routine and find that it’s irritating your skin or causing redness or swelling (for example), then stop using those products immediately until they have time to calm down naturally.
Tame oil with other products.
If you’re looking for a way to tackle oily skin, try using a mattifying primer or foundation before applying your makeup. This will keep the oil at bay and make sure you don’t look greasy throughout the day.
“The key to perfect skin isn’t a miracle product, it’s a consistent and effective skincare routine.”
If your face has been especially oily lately and you’re not too keen on wearing makeup all over again (which is totally understandable), then consider blotting papers! They work by absorbing excess oil from the surface of your skin so it doesn’t get into pores or cause breakouts.
Some people also swear by misting their faces with water instead of spraying them with toner–it’s just as effective at reducing shine but doesn’t have as many harmful chemicals in it either! Be sure not to use these methods too close up though; otherwise, it’ll dry out quickly leaving behind an unpleasant film over everything else underneath (and yes: this happens often).
Think about your sunscreen every day!
Sunscreen is the most important part of your skincare routine and it should be applied every day, even on cloudy days.
The only way to protect your skin from UV rays is by wearing sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30+. It’s also important to apply it 15 minutes before going outside or sweating and after swimming or sweating heavily (or both).
“Your skin is a reflection of your overall health, so taking care of it should be a top priority.”
There are a lot of things you can do to make your skin just right so you can look great, and feel even better
There are a lot of things you can do to make your skin just right so you can look great, and feel even better. First, use a gentle cleanser that won’t strip the natural oils from your face. Then exfoliate gently once a week with an oil-free face scrub or cream (like Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion), but don’t overdo it–this is supposed to be gentle! If you have dry skin, use an emollient such as Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion instead of an oil-based product like GlamGlow YouthMud.
If you have oily or acne-prone skin, then apply sunscreen every day before going out into the day since sunlight causes breakouts (and they’re not fun!).
“Healthy skin is beautiful skin, and taking care of it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive.”
We hope this has been helpful and that you feel empowered to take better care of your skin. Remember, there are lots of great skincare products out there—so if something isn’t working for you, try another brand! And remember to always use sunscreen every day!
