A common myth in facial skincare is that all routines are identical and have the same three steps. It is time to debunk this longstanding legend and go over why everyone should have different routines in order to uniquely treat their faces.
A complete skincare routine varies and depends on skin type and daily activities. Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing with an anti aging face cream are the basics for most, but some people do not need to follow as many steps as others in order to maintain youthful, healthy looking skin.
Read on to learn the variations of facial skincare routines based on your skin type.
- Anti Aging Face Cream for Oily Skin
- Anti Aging Face Cream for Dry Skin
- Anti Aging Face Cream for Combination Skin
If you have oily skin, chances are you over-treat your skin because of the annoying over production of oil in the skin cells. Unfortunately, constant stripping of oils through cleansing actually causes the skin to produce even more skin to counteract its attempted draining and leaves the face even greasier.
A great routine to follow for oily skin is as follows:
- Wash face with a deep-cleaning cleanser to reduce excess sebum, oil from glands on the face, and other surface contamination from the daily elements that come in contact with your skin.
- After washing, use a hydrator such as Perricone’s Skin Clear Hydrator which regenerates and encourages skin to not overproduce oil because it replenishes it with a balanced amount.
- With oily skin, a great additional step to try is a toner or other oil free anti aging cream which can help clarify and tone while calming inflammation that can be caused from acne, a common problem for oily-skin types.
- A final step that many do not take but makes a world of difference is adding a supplement to make you skin clearer. Perricone offers many, such as Skin Clear Supplements, which are a perfect 30 day supply to check out if you enjoy the glowing results.
Dry skin may seem like a curse but when it comes to treatment, it’s the easiest. Since dry skin’s biggest dilemma is the lack of oil, all that needs to be done is cleansing and replenishing daily. This means moisture, moisture, moisture because, even when the weather is warm and humid, your skin still thirsts for it.
A great routine to follow for dry skin is as follows:
- Wash the face with an oil based cleanser so your skin is not left dry and lacking elasticity which is physically painful.
- Immediately after washing the face, pat dry gently, leaving some moisture behind and generously lather on a thick anti aging face cream such as Perricone’s Intensive Moisture Therapy to be sure to lock in the moisture and repair your dry fatigued skin.
- In addition to skin care products, be sure to stay hydrated by drinking water throughout the day as well.
Unfortunately, combination skin has the best and worst of both oily and dry skin types. This makes dealing with this skin type difficult and up for interpretation based on what you know works best for the dry and oily patches on your face. Generally, combination skin has an oily T-Zone, which includes the forehead, bridge of the nose and chin, while the rest of the face is dry and itchy.
A great routine to follow for combination skin is as follows:
- First, pick a gentle cleanser that will work with the varying skin dryness and oiliness on your face. Be sure to gently foam the cleanser into the face and rinse thoroughly.
- Follow this with patting your face completely dry and applying a great anti aging face cream such as Perricone’s Face Finishing Moisturizer heavily on the dry areas of the face. This can include the exterior perimeter and cheek area and sparingly on the oil zones.
Remember that a complete skincare routine with anti aging products is different from person to person. Evaluate your skin type frequently and make proper adjustments so your skin is looking its best, always.
