Great skin is not simply a matter of DNA — your daily habits, in fact, have a big impact on what you see in the mirror. But depending on which product reviews you read or aesthetician you consult, there is a dizzying number of opinions on everything from how to moisturize to how to protect yourself from UV rays. Ultimately, caring for your skin is simply personal. Here’s what you should keep in mind to sort through all the noise.
Three Main Steps
Think of your skincare routine consisting of three main steps:
1)Cleansing — Washing your face.
2)Toning — Balancing the skin.
3)Moisturizing — Hydrating and softening the skin.
it’s not about creating perfection.” Allow these three steps to become your daily ritual that fortifies your skin and grounds your day.
It’s Takes Time
The science behind skincare products has come a long way, but there’s still no such thing as an instant fix — you need time to reap the benefits, says Dr. Rachel Nazarian, a Manhattan dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group. “Results are only seen through consistent use,” she explains. Generally, aim to use a product over at least six weeks, once or twice daily, to notice a difference.
Tip: With any skincare product, apply in order of consistency
