Every woman should practice regular body skincare to keep their cells fresh and healthy. In order to get the best results out of your current beauty retinue, consider making a few changes in your lineup:
1. Exfoliate, then cleanse. Exfoliating your skin is a great way to remove the dead skin cells that sit upon the epidermis to maximize the effects of your cleanser, exfoliate first - you don't want dead skin getting in the way of a good wash.
2. Use products in order of their strength. For example, if you're using a blemish controller, toner and moisturizer, apply the blemish control first. Otherwise, the toner and moisturizer will form a barrier between your skin and the ointment.
3. Wash with warm water. Tepid water opens up your pores, allowing you to get the deepest cleanse. To get the best results, finish with a splash of cold water to tighten up your skin after washing.
4. Increase absorption with heavy moisturizers and serums. Most ladies like to finish their faces with a good coat of moisturizer to keep their skin supple. For best results, use a product made with natural butters, oils or waxes.
