A Basic Skin Care Routine

As a beauty therapist, caring for my skin is something I MUST do.  The difference between being an ordinary skincare user and a person more educated on the ins and outs of skincare is knowledge, a few skills, and more knowledge.

Knowledge liberates me.

The more I learnt about skin care, the freer I became.  Not to buy what I ‘like’, but to be freed to buy what I (not what the counter girl says) need.  I’m also freed from the need to spend money on products that I don’t need; and learn to make more economical purchases.  (However, I have at many times of ‘weakness’ bought products I liked, not those I needed!  But aren’t we all guilty of that? 🙂

For those of you who are still learning this, the main skin care routine (for both men & women) consists of the following:

  • Cleanser
  • Toner
  • Exfoliant
  • Serum
  • Moisturizer
  • Sunblock

You need more or fewer products depending on your skin type, the concerns you have and to some extent your gender.

I’ll cover more on skincare for men and women in the future posts soon.

I like this picture for a skincare advert.  Spot anything?
