The importance of Skincare

Why is having a shower everyday important? that’s the exact same way skincare is important. The only difference here is that the skin on your face is far more venerable than the skin on your body and need’s extra care.

I never paid much mind to my skincare and for someone with oily skin you’d think I would be but no, instead I focused more on which foundation to buy next when the current one ran out which of course didn’t help my skin at all.

Having a proper skincare routine helps you understand your skin more and helps you know exactly what your skin needs. Is it hyaluronic acid? What balance of AHA and BHA does your skin need? Do you know your skin type?

The first step is knowing your skin type which then determines what products will help you maintain your skin in a way that you are happy. According to

”If your skin feels tight, your skin is likely dry. If there is noticeable shine on your nose and forehead, your skin is mostly likely normal/combination. If there is shine on your cheeks in addition to your forehead and nose, you most likely have oily skin.”

This is the simplest way to determine what type of skin you have. Your skin sheds itself every single day, it needs extra care as the new skin is introduced to the surface. Taking care of your skin helps with premature ageing, dark circles and in all honesty the glow is prominent which is why I now pay extra attention to my skin.
