Editorialist narrowed down an effective skincare routine to cleanser, sunscreen, and moisturizer. The outlet was adamant that your skin type and history of skin issues play an important factor in the products you choose. Los Angeles dermatologist Dr. Jessica Wu recommended using cleansers or moisturizers that come super packed with SPF in a two-for-one deal.
You should always start with a cleanser first. Per Everyday Health, a cleanser that contains glycolic acid is preferable for oily skin as it acts as an exfoliator. Incorporating salicylic acid into your daily routine can also be beneficial because of its antibacterial properties, per Harper’s Bazaar. For people with sensitive or dry skin, Editorialist suggested a cleansing oil or balm that will be softer.
The type of moisturizer you reach for also depends on your skin type. Per Insider, dry skin responds best to moisturizers with peak hydrating qualities, while those with oily skin should stick to ones that are water based instead of oil based. The entertainment outlet also recommended lighter products to combat acne, and alcohol-free moisturizers for those with sensitive skin.
