The key to developing a skin care routine that works for you is to analyze & know your skin type before buying any skin care products. Regular re-analyzing, about once every 6 months, is necessary as the nature of your skin will change over a period of time. Adjust your skin care routine accordingly.
To analyze your skin, do the following:
Wash your face with a facial cleanser.
Wait for at least half an hour to allow oil time to return to the skin.
Examine your skin in a mirror under good daylight or a white-light.
Check your skin type before purchasing products. Still not sure what your skin type is? Schedule a facial.
