5 Must Have Skin Care Products

14 Nov

A girl applaing skin care productsWith numerous skin care products presented on the shelves of beauty stores and the pages of magazines filled with advertisements, it can be hard to know what you actually need and what you don’t. While each person’s skin care needs are different than another’s, there are certain ones that all women need.


You need a cleanser to wash all of the day’s dirt, makeup, sweat, and oil off your face. You also need to wash your face in the morning because sweat and oil can accumulate overnight. Washing your face with a good cleanser not only makes your skin look and feel cleaner, it can also prevent acne by preventing the buildup of oil that clogs up pores. Most people benefit from a mild cleanser, which cleans the skin without over-drying it or clogging pores. For people with sensitive skin, there’s diverse gentle cleansers, which is made with a nonirritating formula and is fragrance-free.For those with really oily and acne-prone skin, there are a lot of cleansers with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Benzoyl peroxide kills acne-causing bacteria while salicylic acid unclogs pores.  


You may not see it, but your own skin is clogging your pores. An exfoliator removes the dead skin, makeup and other products that are trapped in your pores. If you want to look years younger, get rid of that dry or dead skin buildup on your face and body with the help of an exfoliator.


Moisturizer hydrates the skin so that it feels soft and glows. Even people with oily skin may still need a moisturizer. Those with oily and acne-prone skin should choose a moisturizer that is oil-free and noncomedogenic, which means that it won’t clog pores. To get the most bang for your buck and to save time on your morning routine, choose a moisturizer that contains sunscreen, which will protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays without clogging pores. At night, use a moisturizer with retinol, which helps unclog pores, fights wrinkles and sun damage, and stimulates collagen production.


Even when it’s cloudy outside or you don’t expect to be out much, you need to wear sunscreen. The most important reason to wear sunscreen is that it reduces your chances of getting skin cancer. Consistent use of sunscreen will also prevent wrinkles, skin discoloration, and rough texture. Ever wonder why the skin on the areas of your body that isn’t exposed to the sun much is so much smoother and clearer? It’s because it hasn’t been damaged by the sun. The sunscreen should be a broad-spectrum one, which means that it protects against both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays, and have a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.

Lip Balms

When talking about skin care products, it is important to mention soothing lip balms that condition and nourish delicate lips. In addition, they moisturise lips and protect them from such environmental factors as the bright sun and cold wind.

Once you find the basic skin care products that work best for you, you can then add in other products, such as a mask and exfoliator, if you find that your skin needs it.
