Taking effective care of skin has never been an easy task. And, although most women realize the importance of taking good care of the skin, few achieve success in doing so. This is because of the way they take care of their skin. Simply choosing a skincare plan, and following that for the sake of having a skincare plan can never produce effective results. For instance, women who have been following the skincare regimen of cleansing their skin in the morning with the same cleanser and then lathering up heavy dose of moisturizer must contemplate the reason why they have not been able to get that glowing appearance that has always eluded them. There is certainly some reason for this, and women must probe it deeper to get the answer.
However, getting that glowing skin is certainly possible if one follows this great morning ritual.
Cleanse The Face With Plain Water
One must do away with the process of using harsh cleansers, and instead cleanse their face with plain cold water first thing in the morning. This will help them get rid of dirt, bacteria, dust, etc that might be sitting on the face. Further, cold water helps in shrinking the pores naturally and thus prevent further intrusion of foreign particles into the skin.
The next major step is exfoliation; however, again, the old practice of choosing harsh scrub to exfoliate the skin is not at all necessary. So, one say no to rough and harsh granule scrubs which produce negative results for the skin. Instead, this job could be effectively done with the help of a wash cloth. It must be dipped in warm water and then moved in circular motion on the face. Starting from nose one should move towards cheek, and then chin, to reach the neck finally. This simple step is highly effective in taking great care of the skin.
Using a great quality toner is always advisable to women. This does the job of balancing the pH level of skin, as well as preventing the skin from going dry. Besides, toner facilitates in effective absorption of various other ingredients into the skin. Again, one must go for quality, as other toners might not prove to be effective.
Serums are always preferred by women and recommended by experts nowadays since they address the specific issues of skin. For instance, there are serums that specifically address the problems of wrinkles, black spots, etc. The reason behind this is the presence of active ingredients in serum as compared to moisturizers. So, one must choose the serums carefully. The serums must be properly massaged. Further, Vitamin C enriched serum is found to have great results, as it is compatible with skin most of the times.
Moisturizer Plus SPF
Next major thing to ensure in the morning skincare regimen is to have the cream that has moisturizing as well SPF properties. This eliminates the need of lathering on different creams. Further, the manner of applying the cream is also important, as one must massage the cream on the skin by making gentle upward strokes. This process should be carried out for a couple of minutes to ensure it seeps into the skin.
