Skincare 101

If you've already got a solid routine, you can read to brush up on this basics.

What You Really Need

A cabinet filled with different jars, tubes, and bottles does not guarantee good skin. You can put a hole through your wallet on the latest creams and serums, but the truth is you need only a few things. Regardless of your age, your face can fare very well with a few targeted items, listed as follws:

Moisturizer with SPF (day time)

Moistruizer without SPF or a night cream (night time)

Eye cream

Makeup remover


*These are the basic products everyone should be using on a regualr basis.

Your A.M Routine

1. If you've cleansed properly the night before, you don't need to wash your face when you wake up. Splash your face with water is just fine. (Although I personally prefer using a light cleanser to ensure my skin is supple and opens the pores so they can absorb moisturizer)

2. Apply moisturizer with SPF (or use a separate sunscreen if you're going to be exposed to very strong sun). If you want to wear makeup over your sunscreen, make sure it's a lightweight sunscreen. Some sunscreens are not compatible with makeup, and it's diffcult to apply products on top of them.

3. Apply eye cream under your eye only. (It's not necessary to use it on your eyelids in the morning as it will interfere with any eye makeup you are wearing)

Note: Consider changing your products seasonally. In the warmer months, a light lotion may be better for your skin than a heavy cream and you may want to use a higher SPF. In the colder months, with dry heat inside and damp conditions outside, a richer cream may be the way to go.

Your P.M Routine

1. Before bed time, you *must* wash your face, otherwise you're risking yourself to blackheads, breakouts and flare-ups! If you're not wearing much makeup, use a cleaner that doubles as a makeup remover.

2. If you're using a serum, then the time to use it is after cleansing. (You can skip this step and move right to moisturizing). Serums go under your moisturizer, use a few drops or as much as directed and smooth onto skin.

3. Moisturize with a cream or lotion that's free of SPF or a night cream. Don't just slap the cream onto your face, neck and chest, really massage it in. Take the time to *push* the product into your pores while they are still open can boost the circulation to your face.

4. Apply eye cream gently around the entire eye area, including eyelid, but be careful not to get it into your eye.

Smart Skin Food

Your diet is an important part of your skincare regimen because the health of your skin and the foods you eat are directly related. Much of this is common sense:

---> Try to reduce the amount of fried and sugary foods that you consume.

---> Make sure you get enough leafy green vegetables and brightly coloured fruits.

---> Get some salmon or other oily fish into your diet. (Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids)

---> Make sure you're drinking enough water and not too much soda.

I do not create many comments, but I looked at a few of the responses on "Skincare 101".
I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's okay. Could it be just me or do a few of the responses appear as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I'd like
to follow everything new you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your social
networking sites like your linkedin profile,
Facebook page or twitter feed?

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Greetings! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm
trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.

If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your site. It appears like some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.
Many thanks

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

However think about if you added some great
photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its niche.
Good blog!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both educative and entertaining,
and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
I'm very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.

Any tips?
