Skincare is not as difficult as it seems. Simple and few products applied constantly give more effective results instead of ample products. If you are a beginner, you can be confused as to which products are to be picked from the market. So, here's a list of products that beginners need to have-
A face wash or cleanser is the most basic product in your skincare routine. It helps in removing the oil, dirt, and bacteria that your skin gets in touch with. Face wash in the morning time gives you a fresh start and helps your skin in repairing itself and get rid of dirt accumulated throughout the day. Moreover, it also helps the skin in gaining the maximum benefits of the applied products. Just check your skin type and choose face wash accordingly.
The serum has become a crucial product in the skincare routine lately. It is a lightweight water-based skincare product that resolves various skin issues like acne, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, etc. Its main ingredients are hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, AHAs, BHAs, and vitamin C. The serum’s main purpose is to remove the visible signs of aging and protect the skin from all free radicals.
Our skin loses moisture throughout the day. Hence, it needs to be moisturized to remain younger-looking, soft, and supple. Moisturizers come with different ingredients to serve different skin types. Moisturizers help in avoiding extreme dryness as well as oiliness. After cleaning your face and applying serum, take a pea-sized amount of moisturizer and apply it to your face using your fingertips by rubbing it gently in a circular motion. Keep doing it until the moisturizer is all absorbed by the skin.
Sunscreen has become an unavoidable part of today's life. The harmful UV rays and the increasing pollution affect our skin to a great extent. Applying sunscreen regularly helps big time in preventing skin aging, sunburn, and even skin cancer. Always go for a 'broad-spectrum' sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for full coverage. Don't forget to reapply it after every 2-3 hours, especially when you're sweating or swimming.
