I’m always telling you guys how important it is to have a solid skincare routine. When you take care of your skin, it thanks you by staying youthful and healthy! So many of you ask me what products I use or what products you should use so I created a little guide of skincare recommendations based on each skin type.
Before you read the chart with my product recommendations, it’s important that you first get to know your skin before choosing which products you need. What are the different skin types? There’s oily, acne-prone, dry, normal and combination. Using products made specifically for your skin type is essential, and you can’t do that until you identify your skin type. Take a little trip to your makeup counter, aesthetician or a dermatologist and they can easily help you out.
Now that you know your skin type, here are some useful charts that will help you with product recommendations categorized by different skin types. You’ll find my recommendations for cleansers, moisturizers, eye creams and sunscreen. You may see a few repeat products throughout the charts, like sunscreen and eye cream, and that’s because those products work well on various skin types. Also I omitted toner from my skincare recommendations as it’t not a product I regularly use.
Please keep in mind everyones skin is a little different so I recommend sampling products before you buy them to make sure they will work for you.
For acne prone skin I recommend products with ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide to help clear up any breakouts.
For someone with dry skin, I recommend gentle cleansers and super hydrating moisturizers and eye creams.
If you have normal skin, you’re in luck. You can use a variety of products on the market however make sure you don’t use anything that is to harsh or abrasive.
If you have oily skin, I recommend products that help absorb excess oil and give the skin a matte finish.
I hope these charts inspires you to take the initiative to start a skincare routine and stick to it! Taking those few minutes each day and night to care for your skin will help keep your skin healthy and clear. It is an invest that truly pays off!
