Masks, creams, exfoliants, serums and lotions – with all the steps there are out there to promote and maintain healthy, youthful looking skin, it can be tricky to know when enough is enough – or when it’s not enough.
Every woman’s skincare regimen should contain a few basics, but there are other moving parts you can add or subtract given your specific skin type and needs. Everyone should be using a face wash once or twice each day, and usually this requires a lotion or other moisturizer to follow up with. Of course, there are variations on this, too. If your skin is acne prone, you probably want a cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to fight pimples and an oil-free moisturizer that won’t clog your pores.
If wrinkles and other signs of aging are a concern for you, eye creams, serums and night creams might be good to add to your skincare regimen. Using a super-concentrated anti-aging cream like Hydroxatone’s Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Complex might be good if you’re worried about crows feet, deep wrinkles on the forehead and uneven skin tone. If you’re concerned about the size of your pores or wrinkles, you might want to add a serum like Strivectin-SD Power Serum for Wrinkles.
