Importance of Daily Skin Care Routine

13 May


Irrespective of your skin type, having a regular cleansing regimen every day is critical for good skin health. Most skin experts advise that excessive cleaning should also be avoided at all costs.

Washing your skin  twice a day with a good facial cleanser that is designed for your skin type helps keep acne and other skin infections under control.


Cleansing gets rid of left over makeup and cosmetics that will end up clogging your pores. It also removes  any sweat and environmental impurities from the surface of the skin. Many cleansers also hydrate the skin and make it supple and elastic. It is very important to use the correct cleanser for your skin type. Avoid using regular soap to wash your face as it is highly alkaline which will dry out your skin. Scented soaps remove the normal protective sebum layer from your skin. This tends to make your skin lose its normal moisture and, in some cases, may even stimulate an oily skin to produce more oil.

Toning your skin is the second step in your daily skin care regimen. Toner gets rid of any excess cleanser that is still on your skin, refreshes the skin and evens out its pH levels. It also enhances cell renewal and refines the texture of your skin. Use a toner that gives your skin the vitamins and minerals it needs and you will see your skin revitalized in no time at all. The toner should be applied right after the cleansing (twice a day) and be left on.

Tanning Skin Care

Protecting your skin from sun rays is another daily skin care routine that you should adopt. Sun blocks are available for all skin types. Select one that suits your skin and use it diligently.

Moisturizing your skin and keeping it well hydrated is an important step to follow. It helps the skin to maintain its normal moisture balance, restores moisture into your skin and also helps to create the perfect base for your foundation. Many people with oily skin believe that moisturizing is unnecessary for them. But this may not really be true. Allowing your skin to get excessively dry may actually worsen your skin problems and cause acne or red patches. Drink plenty of water each day to clear out the toxins from your skin and to keep it supple and elastic all day long.


Another daily skin care tip is to pay attention to the products that you use on your skin each day and note how your skin feels or reacts afterwards. This helps you identify the cosmetics, creams and moisturizers that suit your skin best and have the least harmful impact. The same attention needs to be paid to the hair care products you use since these may also have an effect on your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin.

My daily skin care routine is pretty much the same. I’ll soon share with you all the products which I normally use and will also discuss some more issues related to skin care in my upcoming posts. So, stay posted and take care!
