Basic Skin Care Routine
Executing a basic skin care regimen is central to having the healthy, attractive skin that you want. Follow these essential steps consistently:
Establishing a daily routine of proper cleansing is an important first step to producing healthier-looking skin; it can even help eliminate skin problems. It is especially important to cleanse at night, so that makeup, sunscreen, bacteria, and pollutants do not have opportunity to clog pores.
Do not rely on traditional bar soaps; they can be harsh and even strip natural oils or cause irritation. Treat yourself to a cleanser appropriate for your skin type – one that leaves your skin barrier and pH levels in proper balance. Shira’s Pure Coconut Oatmeal Cleanser is ideal for cleansing skin deeply without being harsh.
Removing dry, dull cells from the skin’s top layer through exfoliation really improves texture and radiance. How frequently you exfoliate depends on age, skin conditions, and the type of exfoliant used. There are many exfoliating products on the market that are gentle enough for daily use, but be careful: exfoliating too much can lead to thin, irritated skin.
Shira’s AHA Treatment Scrub is an example of an exfoliant that delivers professional-type benefits. It contains finely granulated bamboo and jojoba beads as well as Alpha Hydroxy Acids to unclog pores, exfoliate skin, and renew the skin texture. When you get in the habit of exfoliating regularly, it makes it possible for serums and other treatment products that you use to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.
To help alleviate and correct skin conditions – rosacea, hyperpigmentation, expression lines and wrinkles, acne, and so on – you need specialized treatments. Most skin care brands offer product lines that are segmented by skin condition to guide you through the product selection process, which can be quite daunting.
Beware of products that tout unrealistic results or that claim to be all-in-one solutions. Skin care treatments are effective when proper concentrations of premium ingredients are matched with delivery systems that interact with and mimic skin behavior. Since its inception, Shira has developed product collections with very specific ingredient and delivery strategies, to treat a wide range of skin conditions.
Using a moisturizer daily really helps to prevent and treat dry skin. Moisturizers work by holding water in the skin’s outermost layer, but that’s not all they do. They can protect sensitive skin, improve skin tone and texture, mask imperfections, and more. The moisturizer that is best for you depends on many factors, including your skin type, your age and whether you have specific conditions.
People with normal skin need a light moisturizer that contains natural oils, whereas people with dry skin may require heavier lotions with humectants to lock in moisture. For those with oily skin, there are oil-free, noncomedogenic moisturizers, which will not clog pores. And people with sensitive skin should look for moisturizers that are fragrance-free and contain few ingredients.
