Your Skincare is about YOU
Hey Glam Fam! I am currently typing this up at 12am because I can’t fall asleep (blaming the 4 hours nap I took earlier) and instead of aimlessly scrolling through my phone, I decided to open up my laptop and start typing!
Today, I’m here to tell you to make sure your skincare routine should be based off of YOUR skin type and YOUR skin concerns. Not someone else’s! The skincare products you are using should be specifically for you. We are definitely living in a social media & digital age, where we have access to find out about so many different products. If you type skincare on Instagram or Youtube and you will be bombarded with endless content!
While it’s awesome to see so much information about skincare, things can also get very overwhelming and misleading as well. For example, many people will purchase skincare products due to the hype around it without even asking themselves whether or not that certain product will actually benefit their skin. This then can lead to overbuying and overuse of unnecessary products and this can overwhelm your skin’s health as well. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.
It’s so important to know and accept the fact that everyone’s skin is different, not everyone will have the same routine, and not everyone will reap the same results. Just because a product shows amazing results on your friend, doesn’t mean it will do the same for you. For example, someone with dry skin is going to be using heavier and more hydrating products than someone with acne-prone skin. A person in their 20s is going to be using different products than someone in their 50s. I could go on and on about the different scenarios.
Well then Susie, how do I find out what works for me?
First, identify your skin type. This is extremely important. You have to know what you’re working with before you start reaching for products. Are you normal, dry, oily, or combination?
Second, address your main skin concerns/conditions. Acne, dry patches, redness, sensitivity, etc. This is when you can make the products even more specific and catered to your own individual skin.
Third, if you can, make the investment and reach out to a licensed esthetician. (For more serious skin issues, I recommend seeing a dermatologist.) Estheticians, like myself, specialize in skincare curation and skincare customizations! We carry products that are results-driven and can really help your skin’s health and concerns. In addition, we can recommend professional facial treatments that will work hand in hand with your skincare.
In my next blog post, I’ll be going over how to identify what your skin type is and the types of products you should be using based on that.
