Whatever your skin type is, you can create a skin care regimen that works best for your skin with quality and modestly priced items that you can find at a beauty store.

It is very important to buy skin care products that are legitimate. The cheaper imitations that are flooding the market may look legitimate — as well as please the purse — but they have been found to contain ingredients that at best irritate the skin and which could, in the worst cases, cause permanent damage to both the skin and the brain

With so many products to choose from, it’s sometimes difficult to find which facial formula works best. Before purchasing any skin care product, it is important to make sure it is suitable to your skin type:

Here are some face basics for your skin care regimen:

It is very important to wash your face twice a day, but if you manage just once it is still ok. When cleansing it is important to your skin that you do not overdo it and in the process strip your face of all the necessary oil nutrients. And eventually leave your skin feeling dry, itchy or tight.

For oily skins products that have salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide are a great choice. While for combination or dry skin it’s a better choice to choose products that are cream based.

There are so many benefits to exfoliating, from getting rid of dead skin and getting softer skin. Exfoliating your face helps to give your face a better texture.

If your skin feels rough or dry, exfoliating is an easy way to revive dry, and dull skin.

And like it is for all other products, when choosing a face scrub it is important to choose one that is suitable for your skin type. For oily skin you can choose one that has salicylic acid or glycolic as these ingredients help with oil control. For dry skin or combination skin it is preferable to choose a face scrub that is creamy or oil based scrub.

This is a great addition to your skin care routine. Though some people find it optional. Using a toner can be a great in that addition because it contains ingredients that address specific issues. Toning helps to get rid of debris like oil or traces of makeup. It also soothes, repairs and smooths the skin diminishing blemishes and minimizing signs of inflammation.

When choosing a toner it is advisable to look for one that is alcohol free as alcohol can over dry your skin.

When looking for a moisturizer look for one that has a broad spectrum(UVA/UVB) preferably SPF 30. This will help to prevent your skin from the aging UV rays of the sun.

For people with oily skin, lotions are more preferable to creams because lotions are a bit light, and look for products with formulas that have exfoliating ingredients like salicylic acid or glycolic.

If you have a dry skin, just as cream based products are the best when choosing a face cleanser so is it when choosing a moisturizer.

A great addition to your skin care routine because of all the benefits that sunscreen has in protecting the skin against the UV ray of the sun. Choose a sunscreen that has a broad spectrum of SPF 30 and above.

You can add sunscreen to your daily routine mostly if the products that you have do not have broad spectrum UVA/UVB or SPF.
