Natural Face Skin Care Routine at Home- Basics
1. First, you need a good and gentle cleanser
Find one that can thoroughly clean the face epidermis and is gentle enough not to leave it dry and rough.
After the wash, it should feel supple and not rough.
You can use a cleanser or soap but the most important thing is, it should be mild enough to retain your natural face protection and should be fit for its type as well.
Liquid cleansers are the most versatile but may not work very well on the oily face while bar soaps are the best option to remove oil and dirt.
2. Second, moisturize, moisturize and moisturize.
Need I say more?
This step is very important because it can replenish the epidermis of the natural moisture that has been washed off during washing. And with its natural moisture replenished its natural defences are restored as well.
The best moisturizing products should contain safe and effective ingredients such as glycerol, ceramides and hydroxyl acids which also help remove dead cells and replenish its natural oils.
3. Third, protect it from UV rays through a good moisturizer with sunscreen.
This step is the most ignored in facial care regimes. Some moisturizers may already have SPF as part of their ingredients but if your product does not have it yet, then please do include this in your regimen. Too much UV rays can cause skin cancers and hasten photo ageing.
So there you have it. These three simple steps can take you a long, long way when it comes to facial health. So just keep it simple and stay beautiful effortlessly!

Four Steps for Skincare routine
probably your friends talking about their night long skin care regimen that they need to do night after night just to get a clear and beautiful glow.
But the truth is, getting clean and a clear healthy glow is not that hard or that lengthy. All you need to do is follow these three basic steps in facial cleansing and you are well on your way to getting that naturally radiant and clean face!
All you need for this step is clean water and soap.
The most important thing that you need to keep in mind is to use a cleanser that is fit for your face type.
For those with a dry face, it is highly recommended that you use cleansers that have added moisturizers to avoid irritations after the wash.
For those with an oily face, however, it is advised that you use a clear facial cleanser and wash your face twice a day.
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead cells to reveal a newer and more radiant layer at face. This process should be done at most twice a week, just in time for epidermis to regenerate a new layer of it.
There are actually several ways to get an exfoliation, from retinoid and chemical peels. For those who do not want to apply any chemicals on your skin, you can use the good old scrubs but do it very gently if you do not want to feel sore and red after the process.
This is essential, for all face types, and yes, even for those with oily faces
. It all depends on the kind and the amount of moisturizing cream that you put on.
Apply just enough until you feel your epidermis being supple and avoid over moisturizing or you will clog up your pores.
Even in cloudy days, UV radiation can still cause damage to your face. Never forget to moisturize before heading out that door. Keep yourself and you protected at all times.
This simple regimen can only take a couple of minutes of your time so there is no excuse for you not to do it every day. They are simple and effective and can make you look fabulous in no time.
