Quick fixes for every skin type

3 steps you can’t afford to skip

By Mercedes Sanchez

While not everyone’s skin is the same, there are some basic (and imperative) routines that every woman should practice regardless of her skin type.

 

Cleansing

For women with sensitive skin, cleansing in the morning and before bed are two steps they can’t afford to miss. I always recommend women with sensitive skin to cleanse with a no-soap cleanser, like Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash, to cleanse and nourish skin. Look for products that are hypoallergenic and don’t have any dyes or harsh chemicals.

 

Moisturizing

Even if you fall more on the oily side, adding moisturizer to your daily routine is encouraged. Not only does moisturizer often act as an anti-aging regimen, it also keeps your skin healthy because it hydrates. Look for a moisturizer that’s kind to the skin, has pure ingredients and doesn’t contain alcohol. I like Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer to keep my skin nourished all day long. Only apply a small portion if you have oily skin.

 

SPF

You should be applying SPF to your daily beauty regimen year round, but especially now that we’re approaching the warmer months. Using sun protection prevents dark spots, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and of course fights against harmful UV rays.

No matter what your skin type, these are three steps not to be missed!
