The Best Daily Skin Care Regimen For All Face Types

Posted by Dr. Patrick Proffer on October 22, 2019

Your skin is your most important feature. It’s the first thing people see when they see you. It is also the largest organ in your body. As a result, it’s crucial to take care of your skin to ensure you always look and feel healthy.

Unfortunately, your life is hectic. Between work, school, and family and friends, you don’t have much time left over for yourself. And, more often than not, your skin is one of the first things to be neglected. Perhaps you don’t apply moisturizer in the evenings. Perhaps you skip washing your face in the morning. Or, perhaps, you forget to put on skin care products altogether.

Which begs the question: is that such a bad thing? How important is your daily skin care routine? And what is the best way to reduce imperfections and protect your skin from damage?

In this blog, we’ll determine why taking care of your skin is a necessity and provide you with a daily skin care routine to help you achieve the clear, glowing skin you’ve always wanted.

Why You Need A Daily Skin Care Regimen

Wrinkles, fine line, acne scars, and age spots can take a toll on your confidence. Unfortunately, many of these problems get worse over time – particularly if you don’t take care of your skin properly.

That’s why a regular, healthy skin care regimen is so important. The products you use every day have a significant impact on the health and quality of your skin.

Cleansers

Cleansers are best known for their ability to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. Using a cleanser is also the best way to avoid acne and clogged pores. Many dermatologists recommend using a cleanser twice a day.

The type of cleanser you use, however, is just as important as how often you use it. Rough bars and chemical washes can strip the healthy layers off your skin, while heavily fragranced washes can cause allergic reactions.

Toner

After you wash your face, it’s important to follow with high-quality toner. Cleansers can often leave your face feeling irritated. Toner helps calm your skin, removes any lingering dirt or oils, balances your skin’s pH, and diminishes redness.

Serums

If you struggle with dark spots or acne, you know how frustrating they can be. Acneic scars can linger months – even years – after the acne has been treated. Additionally, dark spots are often stubborn and hard to remove.

That’s where repairing serums come in. The active ingredients of serums can reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and scars by gently removing the top, damaged skin layer. Retinol-based serums can also help reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles, improve skin texture, and decrease redness.

Moisturizer And Moisturizer + Sunscreen

Those with dry skin know the importance of daily moisturizer in preventing acne and improving skin texture. But did you know those with oily skin can also benefit from moisturizer? As counter-intuitive as it sounds, moisturizer can help reduce oily skin by preventing skin from drying out and creating more oil to replenish the dry skin cells.

An added benefit of moisturizer is that many brands include sunscreen for your morning routine. Sunscreen is crucial to prevent skin cancer, which can be deadly. It also prevents sunburns and slows signs of aging.
