The science of skin care has advanced by leaps and bounds over the past 20 years. Well-formulated products really can treat even the most stubborn skin issues, from acne to dark spots, wrinkles, rosacea, uneven skin tone, blackheads, large pores, dry skin, oily skin, and, to a minor extent, even sagging skin. Because one product or one "miracle" ingredient can't do it all, it takes several different products to achieve these amazing results. Yes, skin care is rocket science, but it doesn't have to take a lot of time, either!
The vast amount of information about ingredients and products can leave you wondering what to use, when in your routine to apply it, and how often to use it for best results. The following step-by-step guide will make your morning and evening routines a breeze, and speed you along much faster than you would think. We promise that following four steps will lead to practically overnight results and continued improvement of your skin over time.
Find the right AHA or BHA for your skin type here.
At night, adding a state-of-the-art moisturizer (one without SPF) will provide your skin with beneficial ingredients minus the sunscreen (which your skin doesn't need at night), and will eliminate flakey patches if you have dry skin.
TIP: Those with oily or combination skin should use a moisturizer with a lightweight lotion, gel, or liquid formula (toners work, too). Creams and lotions are ideal for those with dry skin. Have normal skin? Use whichever texture appeals to you!
