Skincare 102: Facial Skincare Tips

      To keep your face looking as youthful as possible, you need proper skin care. Here I'll show you how to properly cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your skin while never leaving the house without at least 30 SPF sunscreen. 
      I've dubbed this process "The Basic 4-Step Skincare Regimen," which I outline in this article. I also include organic skincare tips for the growing number of you who are concerned with putting only natural, organic products on your skin. 
      How you care for your skin is utterly dependent on the type of skin you have: oily, normal/combination, dry, sensitive or sun- damaged. Find out what skin type you have.

Step 1: Cleansing
Simple is key here. You need a good cleanser that your skin responds well to, and stick with it: 

  • Choose a creamy cleanser if you have dry skin or a clear cleanser if you have oily skin. For you organic types, you can cleanse skin with milk or yogurt (who knew?). 
  • Be careful not to cleanse too often, you risk over-cleansing skin, see signs you are over cleansing your skin. You really only need to wash your face at night to remove makeup and sunscreen, which can clog pores. 
  • Simply apply cream, then wipe off, no water needed (if you have hard water, it can be especially harsh on skin). Most women prefer the water method: Use warm water to loosen dirt and clogged pores. Use a dime-sized bit of cleanser, then rinse with cool or lukewarm water. 
  • Make sure you remove eye makeup with a proper makeup remover. The area around the eye is delicate so don't pull or rub too hard. You can also use olive oil as a natural eye makeup remover.  
  • In the morning, a splash of lukewarm water is all you need (I find it's great for removing excess oils from your nightly moisturizing).
Never wash your face with hot or cold water (both can cause broken capillaries). 
Step 2: Moisturize 
A basic rule of beauty is that if you have dry skin, you should invest in a basic moisturizer. So how much should you moisturize? Your skin will tell you. When your skin is tight, it's crying out for moisture. Be careful not to over-moisturize -- this can clog pores.

For you Dark skinned ladies , nothing beats a good oil for your skin. You can use extra virgin coconut oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil or jojoba oil as an Overall Body Moisturizer. Are eye creams necessary? Well maybe. Why? The skin around the eye contains no fatty tissue and is therefore very thin and susceptible to wrinkles. Eye creams are formulated to "thicken" 

this area.
