Skincare Regimen for Every Skin Type | Style & Life by Susana

Beauty is in the skin. Take care of it, clean it, scrub it, tone it, moisturise it, oil it, and put on your best clothes, even if there is no special occasion, and you’ll feel like a queen.

 

If society is hard on you, fight back by pampering & looking after your skin.

 

Skin is political. Be a rebel.

Keeping your skin in tip top shape requires daily attention, but once you get into the right routine it’ll become second nature very quickly.

The same goes for other key tasks to keep your skin glowing, like knowing how to clean makeup brushes. Before we start talking about the actual regimen it’s key to identify your skin type first.

Once you’ve done that you’re good to go! So, let’s check out a skincare regimen for every skin type:

OILY SKIN

The main characteristics of oily skin are:

  • A greasy feel and shiny appearance
  • Visible pores
  • Prone to breakouts

 

If that sounds like you, the following three-step routine will work well for you:

  1. Cleanse: Use a gentle cleanser and avoid normal soaps, which can dry out the skin. Combine with warm water to lather and rinse thoroughly.
  2. Tone: Use a cotton pad to apply a balancing toner, getting rid of any left over cleanser & readying your skin for moisturising.
  3. Moisturise: Avoid oil-based moisturisers and opt for something lighter that won’t block the pores. Apply sparingly as too much product can cause clogging.

DRY SKIN

The main characteristics of dry skin are:

  • Looks scaly and patchy
  • Feels tight, itchy
  • Be sensitive to new products

 

As with oily skin a combination of cleansing, toning & moisturising is essential:

  1. Cleanse: Choose a moisturising cleanser that’s foamy. Again, avoid regular soaps and use warm water to spread the cleanser around your face before rinsing thoroughly.
  2. Tone: Add a few drops to a cotton pad and wipe to prepare skin for moisturising. Opt for a sensitive toner that contains non-drying properties.
  3. Moisturise: Apply a rich moisturiser straight after cleansing & toning. Look out for something that’s super-hydrating, and be generous when applying.

COMBINATION SKIN

The main characteristics of dry skin are:

  • Looks scaly and patchy
  • Feels tight, itchy
  • Be sensitive to new products

 

As with oily skin a combination of cleansing, toning and moisturising is essential:

TOP TIPS FOR HEALTHY SKIN

Now that we’ve established a daily cleansing, toning and moisturising regimen – let’s look at a handful of other top tips to keep your skin glowing:

  • Carry out your routine in the morning & at night
  • Never go to sleep with your makeup on – you’ll look great sleeping but not so great when you wake up (!!) 🙂

I don't like to wear too much make-up, only the very basics [concealer, mascara, blush & lip-gloss] when I am out & about casually. I'm extremely diligent [seriously anal] with my skincare every morning, and night.
  1. Keep your beauty tools &applicators clean otherwise you increase the risk of spreading grime and bacteria. In particular it’s vital to keep a close eye on your makeup tools. If you’d like to know how to clean makeup brushes you can click here for more information
  2. Always test any new product on a small area first, just to make sure there’s no reaction

There you go, a skincare regimen for dry, oily and combination skin.

Don’t be afraid to experiment – it’ll probably take a few attempts to get it right, but once you do you’ll create your own routine, know what works for you & your skin, and you will love the results.
