Effective Tips for Daily Skin Care
Now that you have spent some time improving the​ health of​ your skin and​ giving it​ the​ tools it​ needs to​ rebuild itself,​ you can work on​ establishing the​ best possible maintenance routine. ​
Remember that habits are made in​ three to​ four weeks. ​
Start with what you know you can follow for those three weeks. ​
if ​ that means just working on​ establishing your skin maintenance routine for a​ month,​ then your hair routine,​ that’s fine. ​
Just don’t forget your foundational routine improving your nutrition,​ hydration and​ rest!
FACIAL SKIN MAINTENANCE
Cleansing
All makeup should be removed before bed each evening. ​
There are a​ countless number of​ products for cleaning your skin,​ with different formulas for each skin type. ​
Unless you use heavy makeup,​ it’s easiest to​ pick a​ cleanser that also removes makeup. ​
Another option is​ to​ just use makeup remover or​ oil on​ eye makeup,​ as​ foundations and​ blushers usually come off easily with most regular cleansers. ​
Either way,​ clean your facial skin every evening before bed,​ and​ again in​ the​ morning. ​
if ​ you’ve cleaned your face properly in​ the​ evening,​ morning skin will just require a​ light washing to​ remove sebum and​ sweat and​ prepare your face for your makeup. ​

If using a​ waterbased cleanser,​ wet your face with lukewarm water. ​
if ​ using an oilbased cleanser,​ apply directly to​ dry skin. ​

Using your fingers or​ a​ soft cloth,​ gently apply cleanser in​ small circles over your face,​ working from your nose to​ your hairline. ​
Don’t forget to​ apply cleanser to​ your neck,​ using soft swipes upward towards the​ jaw line. ​
Be careful not to​ pull or​ stretch the​ skin when cleansing. ​

Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. ​
if ​ you are planning to​ take a​ shower or​ bath,​ apply your cleanser before getting into the​ shower/tub to​ give it​ a​ few minutes to​ work on​ your skin.
Toning
Toning restores the​ skin’s natural pH and​ provides a​ protective acid mantle that makes the​ skin stronger. ​
it​ helps remove any cleanser residue and​ reduces the​ size of​ pores. ​
Depending on​ your skin type,​ toners will range from gentle acidic formulations to​ highly antiseptic formulas. ​

Soak a​ cosmetic pad liberally with your toner and​ gently wipe your face from your nose outward and​ over the​ forehead. ​
Don’t forget your neck. ​
You can use cotton balls,​ but cotton cosmetic pads are easier. ​
You should avoid the​ delicate skin around your eyes unless using a​ very gentle toning formula that contains absolutely no ​alcohol​ or​ peroxide and​ only then to​ remove oil and​ dirt from the​ eyebrows. ​

Protecting
Your skin should be protected from harmful UV rays daily. ​
Protecting is​ a​ twostep process. ​
the​ first part of​ the​ process is​ providing your skin with antioxidants and​ ingredients that will help it​ protect itself by maintaining natural protective enzymes. ​
the​ second part is​ providing it​ with sunscreen protection. ​

If you are going to​ use a​ vitamin/nutrient antioxidant solution or​ serum,​ you can soak a​ cotton ball with your solution and​ apply to​ face,​ patting your problem areas first,​ then gently wiping over the​ rest of​ your face. ​
Apply to​ neck in​ upward motion. ​
if ​ using a​ commercial antioxidant serum,​ follow manufacturer’s directions. ​

Moisturizing
As women get older,​ their natural sebum production slows. ​
Skin needs inner and​ outer hydration to​ maintain is​ strength,​ flexibility and​ integrity. ​
Moisturizers also reduce the​ risk of​ mechanical damage to​ the​ skin,​ by reducing friction and​ reducing the​ chance the​ skin will be stretched or​ torn by contact.
You can protect and​ moisturize in​ one step,​ but use an allinclusive skin lotion that provides vitamins C,​ E,​ and​ A,​ and​ oils to​ moisturize and​ a​ sun block. ​
You can also provide your own antioxidant protection by applying solutions of​ nutrient vitamins/herbs to​ your skin,​ then using a​ moisturizing sunscreen. ​
We’ll show you more about which ones to​ chose and​ how to​ apply them in​ later chapters. ​

Apply moisturizer lightly to​ face in​ outward motions. ​
Apply to​ neck in​ upward motions. ​
Be careful not to​ pull or​ stretch your skin. ​
For daytime,​ if ​ your moisturizer does not already contain sun protection,​ apply a​ greasefree sunscreen to​ your face,​ throat,​ as​ well as​ all body skin exposed to​ the​ sun.
Exfoliate
As your skin grows and​ repairs itself,​ the​ outer layer of​ dead cells slough off. ​
To expedite this process and​ get to​ the​ fresher,​ newer cells below,​ it’s recommended that you exfoliate your skin at ​ least once a​ week. ​
There are basically two ways of​ doing this,​ mechanically and​ chemically. ​
For mechanical exfoliation,​ you can use a​ good skin scrub,​ a​ microdermabrasion cream or​ a​ loufah pad. ​
Chemically,​ you can use one of​ the​ common acidic exfoliating preparations,​ glycolic acid peels,​ lactic acid peels,​ alphahydroxy,​ etc. ​
Some skin cleansers come with this step built right inside the​ formula. ​
Your skin type will determine how often you should exfoliate and​ which method you should use. ​
Irritated skin,​ like that with acne,​ eczema or​ rosacea will not appreciate the​ heavy scrubbing of​ mechanical exfoliants,​ and​ even a​ chemical formula may be too irritating for more than occasional use. ​
Older skin that is​ highly sundamaged may require either or​ both methods,​ perhaps more often,​ to​ remove the​ layers of​ damaged skin and​ help stimulate the​ production of​ healthy collagen structures in​ the​ deeper layers of​ the​ skin. ​
Again,​ we’ll show you how to​ determine how often and​ which method of​ exfoliation will work best for you. ​

Whatever formula you plan to​ use,​ exfoliants should be applied similar to​ cleansers. ​
if ​ you are using a​ chemical peel,​ avoid scrubbing your skin,​ let the​ chemicals do the​ work. ​
if ​ using a​ scrub,​ apply VERY light pressure,​ and​ work in​ tiny circles. ​
Again,​ be careful not to​ pull or​ stretch the​ skin. ​

Most exfoliants will require some time to​ work. ​
Applying exfoliants right before showering is​ a​ good idea,​ because you can rinse them off under the​ shower,​ which helps in​ removing any residue.
Masks
Facial masks serve several purposes,​ the​ most important one being the​ deep cleaning of​ pores. ​
Masks are also made for superhydration,​ the​ increase of​ circulation and​ for sheer enjoyment. ​
Which kind you use and​ how often will be determined by your skin type and​ your results using the​ PMethod. ​
Generally,​ it​ is​ a​ good idea to​ use a​ deep cleansing claybased mask at ​ least once a​ week. ​
Various cosmetic clays are used in​ these masks because they pull and​ absorb impurities,​ dirt and​ dried sebum out of​ your pores,​ allowing sebum to​ flow naturally and​ smoothly,​ brightening the​ appearance of​ the​ skin,​ helping to​ prevent acne infections,​ and​ improving the​ texture of​ your skin. ​
Several types of​ clay masks are available for every skin moisture type. ​

Apply the​ mask gently and​ allow it​ to​ dry. ​
Most clay masks will require 1015 minutes to​ absorb all the​ impurities and​ wastes from your pores. ​
Rinse the​ mask off gently with fingertips don’t pull. ​
Again,​ it’s a​ good idea to​ apply these before getting into the​ shower. ​

After exfoliating or​ using a​ mask,​ tone,​ protect and​ moisturize your skin.
Example Routines
MORNING
Cleanse Use a​ gentle cleanser to​ remove any sweat or​ sebum from your skin.
Tone Use the​ proper toner for your skin type. ​
Using toner will help your makeup go on​ smoother.
Moisturize Use a​ nonoily moisturizer if ​ wearing makeup. ​
the​ combination of​ an oily moisturizer and​ foundation can make a​ made up face look cakey and​ greasy within a​ few hours even on​ dry aged skin. ​
if ​ you don’t wear makeup,​ you can use an oilier moisturizer.
Protect Absolutely necessary use a​ sunblock of​ at ​ least 15 SPF daily unless you work the​ graveyard shift. ​
Even the​ darkest skin should be protected from the​ harmful rays of​ the​ sun. ​
Sun protection can also be found in​ some commercial foundation formulas. ​
if ​ you use a​ moisturizer or​ foundation with a​ builtin sunblock of​ at ​ least 15 SPF,​ you do not need to​ add a​ separate sunblock,​ though you should reapply these throughout the​ day. ​

EVENING
Cleanse Cleanse your skin thoroughly before bed at ​ night. ​
Remove all makeup and​ use a​ cleanser that is​ right for your skin type. ​

Tone Use a​ toner to​ remove cleanser reside and​ restore pH balance.
Protect Add any antioxidant serum to​ your skin and​ allow to​ soak in​ may be combined with your moisturizer.
Moisturizer Add any special eye cream plus skin moisturizers gently to​ your skin.
