Yes, we said it three times. Locking in moisture is the key to supple, smooth skin. A good skin care regime is vital. Be gentle, yet thorough. Overworking your skin can cause inflammation and swelling on its surface.
Wash your skin every morning and exfoliate your skin once a week. Gentle exfoliation removes micro particles and oil from the pores, but over-washing can strip away the skin’s natural moisturising oils which creates patches of dryness and irritation. Remember to pat your skin dry, rather than rubbing it vigorously.
Apply moisturiser in the evening and the morning (and the afternoon if you feel like it). Just be sure you are using the best one for your skin type, the time of day, and the season. People with the best skin are acutely aware of their skin type and how to manage the moisture levels within.
If you have sensitive skin, look for products with “ceramides,” one of the three types of lipids or fats in the skin.
