 If your current skin care routine isn’t having the results you expected maybe you need one that is better  suited for your skin type. The wrong skin care routine is very common but it does not have to be complicated. It is important that you choose skin care methods and products that are created for your specific skin care needs. It doesn’t matter if you have oily, dry or combination skin or if your skin is sensitive or sun damaged. There are products and grooming methods that will work with every skin type. Of course, there are lots of common mistakes that can be made, even if you get the skin care products that work with your unique body chemistry.


In this article I will be covering some time-tested and doctor-approved skin care routines for different skin types.

 Oily skin

If you have extremely oily skin that seems to defy all efforts to manage it, then it might be time to see your dermatologist. Diet and skin care habits are both important in this situation. Try not to strip your face completely of oil when you cleanse it. Does your cleanser come in bar form? People with very oily skin shouldn’t use regular detergent bar soap because it dries out the skin which increases oily glands. Using all natural, organic soap instead of harsh detergent soaps will equalize your sebum production. Look for products that do not contain harsh lathering agents such as SLS. It’s easy to cause imbalances in your oil glands because they are sensitive and react to all sorts of environmental influences.

 A fresh, clean look

Many people do not always think about things other than cleansing and moisturizing. However, there is another facet to skin care which is exfoliation. Exfoliating is the process whereby dead skin cells are removed leaving you with a smooth, glowing top layer of skin. If you aren’t removing these dead cells regularly you are setting yourself up for an acne breakout. I always recommend using natural exfoliating products to minimize any skin damage such as natural bristle skin brushing and sea sponges.


 Is toning skin necessary?

Many people wonder whether or not they should tone their skin because there are many kinds of toners out there. So do you know if you need to tone or not? There is no real straight answer concerning these products and even experts tend to differ on the matter. One thing that everyone can agree on is that they remove oil from the skin. If you have a dry skin type, the toner isn’t always necessary. Toner could, however, be quite useful if you have oily skin. But even those with oily skin should never, ever completely strip the oil from their face. This is a skin care mistake that often results in the skin’s overproduction of oil. Instead choose toners with added vitamin E, essential oils and aloe vera juice to replenish your skin with the moisture that was stripped away.

  If you are tired of fighting a losing battle don’t worry- all you need are some good trouble shooting methods to find the cause of skin troubles. Don’t try anything new until you are absolutely positive what your skin type is. It is not wise to move forward without this information. If you are not sure, as a professional for advice on the matter. Then, and only then can you begin seeking the right skin care products for your skin type. Take a look at the products you are using and make sure they specify what skin type they are made for!
