Welcome back, dearest friends of Amiro
Great skin isn't just a matter of genetics; your daily habits have a significant influence on what you see in the mirror. It's time to pamper yourself with products or devices that are tailored specifically to your skin's needs among a dizzying number of options in the market. We strongly hold that skin care is a matter of personal preference. In this blog, we will sort through all the noise and build our own skincare routine.
Determine your skin type
When we are talking about skincare, one of the most important things we need to do is figure out our skin type. Only by knowing our skin type can we determine which skincare products are right for us and how to properly care for our skin. There are normal, dry, oily, and combination skin.
Normal skin is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced skin. Normal skin is characteristic of fine pores, good blood circulation, a velvety, soft, and smooth texture, and no blemishes. If we have normal skin, we can pretty much use any type of skincare product or device.
Dry skin is just as it sounds – dry. It may feel tight, flaky, or even rough to the touch. If we have dry skin, we need to be extra careful when choosing our skincare products as many can actually further dry out our skin. Look for products that are specifically designed for dry skin and avoid those with harsh chemicals or drying alcohols.
Oily skin is characterized by an excess of sebum (oil) production which can leave our complexion looking shiny or greasy. Oily skin is prone to comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and to varying forms of acne.
Combination skin has two or more distinct skin types on the face, and the condition of our skin may change depending on the season. The mixture skin type is distinguished by dry, flaking skin on the cheeks and excessive oil and shine on other regions of the face.
Identify your skin concerns
Since we have a better understanding of our skin type, it's time for us to identify our specific skin concerns, whether it's breakouts, dryness, or redness. A few tips below may help:
- Observe your skin in both natural and artificial light. This will help you get a better idea of any areas that may need extra attention. Specifically, observe your skin throughout the day to find any areas that are especially dry or oily.
- Think about any recent changes in your lifestyle or environment. Medications, new skincare products, and recent exposure will affect your skin.
- Keep track of any skin issues. Note when they happen and what seems to trigger them. If your skin issues persist, please consult a dermatologist.
Research ingredients beneficial to your skin
One approach is to look at the products that you already used and to see if you can identify the key ingredients that work so well for your skin. Once you've got a list of potential candidates, you can start doing some research on each one to find out more about their benefits and how they might fit into your skincare routine.
Another option is to consult a skincare expert or dermatologist to get their recommendations on which ingredients would be best for your individual needs.
Whichever route you choose, researching skincare ingredients will pay off in the long run. Armed with knowledge about what works well for your skin, you'll be able to put together a customized skincare routine that will give you the best results.
Create your skincare routine
The aim of any skin-care regimen is to fine-tune your complexion so that it functions optimally, as well as to troubleshoot or target any areas you want to work on. Although there is no one-size-fits-all solution to skincare, We can create our own skin routine based on our needs, and allow these following steps to become our daily ritual that fortifies our skin and grounds our day
- Cleansing: Washing our face is the most fundamental activity in any routine, for our skin comes into contact with environmental pollutants that should be removed gently. For everyday cleansing, your skin type should be considered.
- Toning: Toners are efficient at balancing the pH level of the skin, making it less prone to oiliness and infection and giving it a more vibrant and smooth appearance. It can be a useful way to incorporate specific ingredients that you might not have in your other products or to add another layer of skin-replenishing. Such ingredients may include Alpha and beta hydroxy acids, Hyaluronic acid, and vitamins E and C.
- Moisturization: Apply a moisturizer immediately after cleansing while your skin is still damp. This will help lock in hydration and prevent dryness.
- Exfoliation: Exfoliate once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and promote cell regeneration. Be sure to use a gentle exfoliator that won't harm your skin.
