The Importance Of Good Skincare

You may have gotten away with washing your face and body with the same bar of soap for the majority of your life, but there comes a time when you have to stop, look at yourself in the mirror, and decide whether or not you’re ready to put that bar soap aside and embark on a new adventure that we call skincare. All joking aside, skin care is one of the most important ways that you can take care of your skin. Let’s take a closer look at some things you need to invest in and why.


The most important thing that everyone and their mom needs to invest in? Sunscreen. And no, we aren’t just talking about sunscreen to bring to a day at the beach (although that’s important too)! We’re talking about the kind that you should be wearing every day. You may not realize it, but even in November, your skin can still be exposed to the sun’s harmful rays which can cause sun damage and may even increase your chances of developing skin cancer.


Another thing everyone should invest in? A good face scrub. By using a face scrub about 2-3 times a week, you can get rid of dead, dry skin which will encourage the growth of newer, healthier skin in its place— leaving you with smoother skin in the process.


Now that you’re giving up on bar soap to wash your face, try investing in a facial cleanser that’s designed for your specific skin type in mind. For instance, if you have acne, look for one that contains acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.


There are two different types of moisturizers: daily and nightly ones. Try investing in both of these. A daily moisturizer usually contains a light sunscreen and will protect your skin during the day. A night cream or moisturizer contains properties to help moisturize and heal your skin while you’re sleeping.
