Creating a Skin Care Routine
posted: Nov. 30, 2020.
Blemishes and breakouts are more likely to occur if you have a haphazard approach to skincare. Establishing a daily skincare routine and visiting your Tulsa, OK, dermatologists, Dr. Lynn Anderson and Dr. Kristen Rice can help you keep your skin healthy.
Key steps in your skincare routine
Skincare routines don't have to complicated to be effective. In fact, these suggestions can help your skin look and feel its best:
- Clean Your Skin in the Morning or Evening: Cleaning your skin removes bacteria, dirt and oils that collect on your skin during the day or night. If you wear makeup, be sure to remove it thoroughly before you go to bed. Makeup may clog the pores in your skin while you sleep, causing irritation and pimples. Cleansing your face first thing in the morning and just before you go to bed is a simple step that offers important benefits for your skin.
- Choose the Appropriate Cleanser for Your Skin Type: Before you select a cleanser, you'll need to consider if your skin is dry, oily or sensitive, or if you have a combination of both dry and oily skin. Look for cleansers that mention hydration if you have dry skin. Foaming cleansers are a good choice if you have dry skin, while a non-foaming gel cleanser may be just what you need if you have combination skin.
- Follow Cleansing with a Moisturizer: Moisturizer keeps your skin soft and smooth and also makes fine lines less noticeable. Using a moisturizer every time you clean your skin will keep it from becoming too dry or too oily and may help you avoid acne breakouts.
- Use Sunscreen Daily: Sunscreen is an important addition to your skincare routine year-round. Daily use of sunscreen decreases your risk of skin cancer and also reduces visible signs of aging, including lines, wrinkles and age spots. Look for sunscreen or makeup or moisturizers with sunscreen included that offer a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30.
During your visit to the Tulsa dermatology office, your skin doctor can recommend the best skincare products for your skin type and also share tips, recommendations and treatment options that can help you look your best.
