Skincare 101 - 3 Steps to Healthy Skin

Step 1: Cleanse
Washing your face and using toner IS important! Cleansing your skin twice a day allows you to prepare your skin for the hectic day and wash it all away at night. The environment isn't so nice to our skin whether we realize it or not. Washing your face at the end of the day helps to wash away the impurities.

Take 2 minutes out at the end of your day to just gently massage your face and know that you're giving your skin some much needed pampering.

Step 2: Tone
Often times this step is devalued. Here at timetospa we get the question all the time; Why is toning so important? It’s just one more step that I have to do. Toning is important for 3 reasons:

1. It helps to remove any excess cleanser that may have remained after rinsing your skin

2. It acts as a de-greaser to help control oiliness

3. It balances the PH (or the acidity) of your skin back to a normal level after you’ve washed.

Your skin needs balance. So why is this rule so important? Think of it this way: would you put a fresh coat of wax on your car if you haven’t even washed it yet? Using all those wonderful moisturizers & anti-aging boosters is a great thing for your skin but the efficacy of the product isn’t going to be at 100%.

Step 3: Moisturize
Moisturizing is good—FOR EVERYONE! Oily, dry, combination, sensitive, normal or a mixture of all five. Every skin type needs moisture. Often times you’re not sure what type of moisturizer your skin needs. A good rule of thumb to follow, is if you have primarily dry skin, your moisturizer needs to be a little heavier and contain more hydrating ingredients such as Vitamin E. Oily and combination skin types should use a lighter moisturizer. If your skin is prone to being oily, stick to products that aren’t heavy and provide a light coverage.
