Skincare 101

Regardless of your age, you absolutely must take the time and the investment to care properly for your skin.  The days of skipping a night or two here of there of properly washing and moisturizing your face must come to an end.  I’m talking to you!

Admittedly, there are a zillion skincare lines out there, with each product promising to perform one miracle or another.  Here is a cheat sheet on some basic products you should be using.  Some of these may carry a hefty-ish price tag, but your skin will thank you in the years to come.  Trust me!!

 

Cleanser.  A gentle cleanser is all you need.  Less is more here.  Avoid any cleanser that “foams” as it can be very drying.

Daytime Moisture.  Look for one which include an SPF (duh!) and a light tint.  Never skip a day of this!

Exfoliant.  Once you go Clarisonic, you’ll never go back.  Used daily, it can slough off dead cells and any other sludge that may accumulate on your skin, especially if you live in an urban area.

Eye Cream.  This is one you need to start early, girls!! A splurge, yes.  But it will help your anti-aging war, as well as reduce dark circles and puffiness which may result after a late night of fun.
