Properly Sequenced Order For Applying Skin Care Products

Do you have questions about whether or not a product is best used in the morning or night? Are you confused about whether special treatments should be applied before or after moisturizer or sunscreen?

These general guidelines should help provide specific directions about when and how to use skin care products.

1. Apply eye makeup remover on a two-sided moistened cotton pad and swipe the eye area in a downward direction. Flip the pad and wipe the eyes until clean. If necessary, turn the pad inside out or use a newly moistened pad and repeat until the eyes are completely clean.

2. Cleanse the face with a cleanser that best suits your skin type and condition. Cleansers should be used twice a day.

  • oily or combination skin – foamy cleanser or face wash
  • normal or combination skin – cleansing lotion
  • dry skin – milky cleanser
  • very dry or mature – cleansing cream

3. Toners are used after cleansing. They remove residue left by cleansers and they restore the skin’s natural pH after cleansing.

  • oily and acne prone skin – astringent
  • normal and combination skin – toner
  • dry, mature and sensitive skin – fresheners

4. Exfoliation removes the dry, dead surface cells that makes the skin smoother, helps unclog pores, helps product penetration making them more effective and improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture.

  • limit exfoliation to once a week  ( 3 times a week for  oily skin types)
  • use exfoliants at night to avoid leaving the skin exposed to the elements during he day

5. Masks work best on freshly exfoliated skin. Used weekly, masks can:

  • tighten and tone the skin
  • draw impurities out of the pores
  • clear up blemishes
  • hydrate
  • nourish
  • calm and soothe
  • rejuvenate the skin

6. Serums are thinner liquids and eye creams are usually thicker to protect thin, delicate skin. Serums and eye creams are applied under moisturizers.

7. Moisturizers seal and protect the surface of the skin. Even oily skin needs hydration or it will have to overcompensate for dryness and produce more oil or become dehydrated.

8. Daily sunscreen is imperative for healthy skin. Sun exposure not only leads to skin cancer, but to

  • aging
  • hyperpigmentation
  • capillary damage
  • free radical damage
  • collagen and elastin deterioration

Which Is The Right Treatment Option……..Electrolysis or Laser Hair Removal?

An initial consultation is required before any hair removal treatments can begin. Medical history, condition of the skin, as well as the density and type of hair to be removed must be obtained. Advice regarding suitable treatments based on the information obtained are provided to each client. For example, electrolysis is more effective than laser for those with blond, red or gray hair and those with sparse, fine hair. Conversely, laser would be recommended for a fair skinned individual with dark hairs and/or a large area to be treated. In many cases, it is very effective to combine both methods of hair removal.

FYI – “Skin is the window to the body’s overall health”

An individual’s skin type is primarily based on how much oil is produced in the follicles. Generally, an individual’s skin becomes drier over time. Skin types include dry, normal, combination or oily. Sensitive skin is considered a condition and acne is considered a disorder. All skin types need proper cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating.

 

1. Dry Skin

  • lacks natural oil secretions that protect us from environmental damage and aging
  • follicles are usually small
  • While common for someone with dry skin, dehydration is a condition that can be seen on all skin types. Dehydrated skin lacks water. This is different from dry skin that lacks oil. Drinking plenty of water and hydrating the skin with moisturizers can help minimize the effects of dryness and dehydration.

2. Normal Skin 

  • has a good oil/water balance
  • follicles are a normal size and the skin is usually free of blemishes
  • maintenance and preventative care is the goal for this type of skin

3. Combination Skin

  • both oily and dry at the same time
  • pore size changes from larger to medium just outside the T-zone on the cheeks next to the nose
  • deep cleansing and regular exfoliation help to keep the skin clear and blemishes minimal

4. Oily Skin

  • characterized by excess oil production
  • pore size is larger over most of the face
  • requires more cleansing and exfoliating than other skin types. However, over cleansing can make matters worse. If the skin is over dried, it is not balanced and the body’s protection mechanism tries to produce additional oil to compensate for the dryness on the surface.

 

  • Preventative measures for skin care include avoiding the sun and wearing sunscreen.
  • Proper home care, skin treatments and ingredients such as antioxidants, lipids and AHAs can be beneficial.
  • A good diet, vitamins, water intake and exercise all have a positive effect on our health and our complexion.
