A skincare routine is an essential part of taking care of your skin. It is important to choose products that are suitable for your skin type. There are five different types of skin, which are dry, oily, combination, sensitive and acne-prone.

  • Dry skin often lacks oil and feels tight after washing it. This is because the sebum production in the pores has been reduced or has stopped altogether.
  • Oily skin produces more sebum than necessary and is prone to blackheads and breakouts.
  • Combination skins have a balance between dryness and oiliness, but one side may be more predominant than the other depending on the time of day or season.
  • Sensitive skin, may have one or more of the following: redness, itching, burning, or tightness in areas of your face or neck, dry patches or eczema patches.
  • Acne-prone skin has red, swollen, and sometimes painful pumps usually occurs on the face, neck, chest, back, or shoulders. It's caused by a number of factors including genetics, diet and hormones.

Cleansing

The first step towards healthy skin is clean skin. Any skin care routine starts with a cleansing process. Because facial skin is most exposed to the dust and grime in the atmosphere. Washing your face after you’ve been out is a must. But do not overdo it. Excessive use of soap and other cleansers can produce excess oil and breakouts or sores. Particularly if you have oily skin.

Hydration is an essential part of skincare. The skin's moisture barrier keeps it hydrated and healthy by locking in moisture. If the skin's barrier is damaged, it won't be able to hold on to moisture, which can lead to major hydration problems.

Dryness, scaly, dryness, redness, and skin irrationality are a few examples. It's the most important way to maintain healthy, glowing skin. Drinking plenty of water daily is good for your skin as it helps get rid of toxins in the body.

Hormonal changes

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when the dead skin cells and the oil clogs the skin pores. Sebaceous glands become overactive and secrete excess oil. This then blocks the pores in the skin. Which, in turn, leads to inflammation and redness of the skin causing acne.

The main cause of acne is hormonal changes. Acne is the most common skincare problem affecting people, especially teenagers. Usually, acne fades in the late 20s but some people, mostly women, face this problem even in the forties and fifties. The majority of those affected by acne only experience it in a mild form. Severe acne could lead to emotional and physical scarring.

There are many ways to clear skin acne caused by hormonal changes. These include oral contraceptives and topical solutions like retinol, alpha-hydroxy acids. As well as, natural solutions such as tea tree oil, green tea. Diet can also play a part to reduce acne. Avoid sugar, dairy products, red meats, refined carbs, such as white bread and pasta.

There are many ways to keep your skin healthy and clean, for example, cleaning your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser, using sunscreen during the day, and exfoliating once a week. These are just some of the many ways that you can maintain skincare hygiene.
