In essence, cleanser is face-specific soap. Cleanser is what you need to gently and effectively remove the dirt, oil, and impurities that accumulate on the skin’s surface throughout the day. Use a cleanser that suits your skin type – whether it’s oily, dry, or combination – you can pick from gel, cream, or oil-based cleansers, as well as micellar water or gentle cleansing bars. Cleanse twice a day – once in the morning and once at night to prevent your skin’s pores from clogging up with grime and causing breakouts.
Often underestimated, a toner plays an important role in balancing the skin’s pH levels and preparing it for the next steps in your skincare routine. A toner penetrates the skin, giving it instant hydration, as well as removing any dead skin cells. It also aids in tightening pores and promoting a smoother complexion. Toner is made to be applied after cleansing your face and before moisturizing. Look for toners with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid or shea butter, like our Pearl Facial Cleanser.
Moisturizer is an absolute essential component of any skincare regimen and is easily the most crucial step. Regardless of your skin type – oily or not, moisturizing is a non-negotiable step. A good moisturizer hydrates the skin, preventing it from becoming too dry or too oily. Choose a product with ingredients that cater to your skin’s needs – look out for products with moisturizing natural oils. You’ll love our range of moisturizing body butters, made with ingredients like shea butter, papaya oil, and cocoa butter, suitable for facial and body application.
Sunscreen is the ultimate defender against hyperpigmentation and premature aging effects caused by harmful UV rays. Invest in a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and apply it every morning, even on cloudy days. Using sunscreen shields your skin from sun damage, reducing the risk of dark spots, wrinkles, and skin cancer.
Additional Products for Specific Skin Concerns
There are many other skincare products on the market, just be sure to keep it simple and use only those that cater to your skin shape specific needs. Layering on so many products may affect your skin negatively. Limit the products you use to only what you need, and if you have specific skin concerns, consulting with a dermatologist can provide personalized recommendations for an effective skincare routine tailored to you.
