You don’t need dozens of products to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. Building a solid skin care routine with just a few select products can completely transform your skin. Most skin types need six basic skin care products: a cleanser, toner, eye cream, serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen.
Some people believe that water alone is enough to cleanse the skin. However, for most people water is not a sufficient substitute to a good facial cleanser.
Daily washing with a high-quality product like the Dermal Balancing Cleanser from Dr. Sylvia Skin Care can help remove dirt, dead skin cells, bacteria, pollutants, and other impurities from the face.
The best cleanser for mature skin is one that strips away dirt and grime without removing essential oils on the skin.
Use a gentle, soothing skin toner to remove any leftover oil, dirt, or grime left behind by the cleanser. While toners are best suited for individuals with acne-prone or oily skin, they can also be useful for aging skin.
The Gentle Soothing Skin Toner for mature skin by Dr. Sylvia Skin Care is an excellent option for maintaining a more youthful complexion. It’s also infused with soothing agents like chamomile and bosweillia serrata to calm redness, fight inflammation, and desensitize the skin.
- Eye Care
As we age, the skin around the eyes becomes more prone to dryness. We start to look tired and frequent movements of the face contribute to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. An anti-aging cream like Elastifirm Eye Cream by Dr. Sylvia Skin Care can help restore moisture to the skin and protect against free radical damage.
- Anti-aging Serum
This next step is one that many women forget. Face serum offers a high concentration of active ingredients that penetrate deep into the skin to remedy a wide range of skin concerns, such as wrinkles. Use a face serum like the Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum or Vitamin C 20% Serum with Ferulic Acid by Dr. Sylvia Skin Care after cleansing and toning and before moisturizing. Clinical studies proven that stem cells in Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum helps to stimulate collage as well as prevent collagen breakage. While most serums are lightweight their effects are usually powerful and fast-acting.
Also, Vitamin C is a great antioxidant that protects your skin from free radicals such as UV rays and other environmental factors which are major contributors of aging skin. Studies have found that the skin can benefit from using Vitamin C not just in day but also during the night. Vitamin C helps to prevent skin damaged in the day as well as to continue skin repair from post-sun damage at nightime.
Moisturizer can help prevent and treat dry skin. It is especially important after showering as hot water can strip away your skin’s natural oils, leaving your skin parched.
Opt for a light, non-comedogenic moisturizer that won’t irritate your skin, like the Clarifying Moisturizer from Dr. Sylvia Skin Care. This skin treatment in Singapore contains a blend of naturally purifying essential oils that help keep the complexion clean and clear.
- Sun Screen
One of the most important components of any skin care routine is sunscreen for face and body. Every time you go outside you’re exposing your skin to harmful UV rays. Not only can long-term exposure to UV rays cause sunburn, it can also cause premature aging of the skin, wrinkles, and even skin cancer.
Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis, like the Oil Free Sun Protection SPF 30 by Dr. Sylvia Skin Care.
You can easily turn this into a night time skin care routine by skipping sunscreen and adding a calming mask to lock in moisture into your skin.
Remember, achieving healthy, youthful skin is not always easy. It involves the use of a targeted skin care routine made up of high quality products that is proven effective by clinical studies.
