If you use no other skin care products, a cleanser should be part of your daily routine. Unfortunately, there are many self-proclaimed lazy people who claim not to have enough time for even the simplest skin care maintenance. Before you end up with blemishes and premature wrinkles, think about establishing a bare-bones routine that even the laziest person can keep up with on a daily basis.
Use a Moisturizing Cleanser
The two most important elements of any skin care routine are a moisturizer and a cleanser. Ideally, you will cleanse your face and moisturize it twice daily, both in the morning and before bed. However, if you are truly not going to take that extra step, using a two in one product is better than using no product at all. There are cleansers available that will moisturize your skin while cleaning it, making them excellent products for people who would otherwise not be moisturizing their skin.
Makeup Remover Wipes
One of the biggest skin care mistakes that people make is going to bed with makeup on. This clogs your pores and leads to a wide array of skin care problems. The best practice is to remove makeup with a gentle cleanser every night as part of your bedtime routine. However, makeup remover wipes will work in a pinch. Just be sure to use them gently, as rubbing can cause irritation and the unnecessary pulling motion can lead to loose or sagging skin.
Protection from the Sun
If you do absolutely nothing else for your skin, you need to make sure that you are taking proper precautions against sun damage. Unprotected exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can lead to sun spots and wrinkles as well as more serious conditions such as skin cancer. Remember that SPF is essential all year long, not just in the summer. You can take care of this essential step by choosing cosmeceuticals that have sun protection built into their formula.
The older we get, the more important it is that we prioritize skin care in our daily routines. At the very minimum, everyone should be using a cleansing product as well as a moisturizer, such as the products offered by Genovo Skincare. It is also absolutely essential to use proper protection from the sun, whether in the form of an actual sunscreen or a skin care product with SPF built into the formula.
