1. finding a cleanser:

washing your face is the first and most essential step of your skin care routine. wash your face twice a day (mornings and nights) to avoid clogged pores which can cause acne.

CAREFUL!: FOR PEOPLE WITH EXTREMELY DRY SKIN: “overwashing” can cause extreme dryness to skin which can cause breakouts or acne.

2. finding a toner:

toners are liquids that help your skin to find balance. they have nutrients that absorb easily and support your skin.

  • hyaluronic acid: hydration
  • rose water & green tea: calming irritation
  • vitamin c & e: anti aging

3. finding a moisturizer:

use moisturizer all year around for all skin types!

your skin type and the perfect moisturizer

  • oily: gel
  • normal/combination: lotion
  • dry: cream/soft cream

PRO TIP: use sunscreen! a lot of sunscreens have a grey-ish or white-ish teint which can be a problem, but sunscreens keep you protected from the UV rays from the sun and keeps your skin away from aging fast.
