Want great skin or your make up application to appear like your second skin? It starts with the basics steps of your skin care.

Step 1: Cleansing

First find an appropriate make-up remover.

Next, look for a skin cleanser that fits your skin type. A creamy cleanser is advisable if you have dry skin and a clear cleanser if you have oily skin.

Use the cleanser to remove any traces of make-up on your face. Avoid cleansing too often just basic washing your face in the night before you sleep will help. You can also use warm water to loosen dirt and clogged pores on your face then a bit of cleanser.

Finally, rinse with cool or lukewarm water. When you wake up the following morning you can easily rinse with lukewarm water to remove any oil on your face.

Cleansing your face will also help return your skin to its normal PH balance.

Step 2: Toning

Toners help with removing traces of make-up, dirt or oil on the face.

Step 3: Exfoliating

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin therefore allowing new rejuvenated skin to surface. This helps improve the appearance of fine lines and mild acne.

Exfoliating your skin every week will make a whole lot of difference. You can use a scrub for this. Scrubbing your face will help remove the layers of dead skin cells that give your complexion a dull look and keep your skin glowing. Use a gentle scrub because the skin on your face is delicate.

Step 4: Moisturizing

Getting a good moisturizer is important.  It helps form a barrier between your skin and the environmental conditions by forming a protective layer that will enable your skin to retain the amount of moisture it requires.

No matter the skin type, moisturizer is important.
