Skin Care 101

As the school year winds down and summer is just around the corner, a need for good skin is a necessity. The constant change in temperature and UV rays from the sun can cause irreversible damage. Taking care of your skin is one of the simplest and most rewarding things you can do to prevent skin problems such as acne, inflammation, discoloration, redness, dryness, and puffiness as well as giving your skin a healthy appearance. The most basic step of skin care is washing your face. Washing your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser such as Bioré Revitalize 4-1 Self-Foaming Cleanser, day and night, removes oil and dirt buildup that can clog pores and lead to acne and irritation.  Using a gentle scrub like, Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub, once a week in place of your normal face cleanser, uses microbeads to lightly buff the surface of your skin leaving it smooth and soft to the touch.  Washing your face gives you a refreshing feel, but while it unclogs your pores, it also leaves them vulnerable. Using a toner like the Bioré Triple Action Astringent after cleansing can greatly enhance the benefits of your face wash. Toner removes any excess cleanser not removed from the water, tightens your pores, and restores your skins natural ph.  No skin care regiment is complete without a moisturizer.  Moisturizing your skin, in general, delivers nutrients, balances and fortifies for healthy looking skin, makes makeup easier to apply, as well as replenishes the moisture lost form acne products.  Tinted moisturizers such as the ones from the Sonia Kashuk collection not only provide a more full coverage, but also contain SPF 15 to protect your skin from harmful sunrays. Using a nighttime moisturizer like Bioré A Hard Day’s Night can hydrate and restore skin’s moisture lost during the day as you sleep.  These four easy steps will greatly improve your skins consistency and give you a glowing appearance.
