I’ve been thinking a lot about skin care lately as my skin seems to be on a good plateau right now, which is great. My regimen the past year is working and keeping it all in balance. My hormonal acne around my jawline has stopped, and my skin doesn’t seem overly dry. It’s funny because I love any kind of special treatments and skin care gadgets, so I’ve been thinking I might want to incorporate a new one into my routine. Then, I look in the mirror and think, “why mess with what I have going on?”
I recently spoke with the owner of Doll Face Skincare Studios, Lila Castellanos, about what we should all be doing when it comes to skin care and she said, “The two most important parts of any daily skincare routine are skin cleansing and exfoliation, both of which are vital to proper skin care. The first step is removing makeup with remover or an oil-based cream. Follow with a cleanser that is well-suited for your skin type.
Exfoliation involves rubbing the skin with an exfoliator or scrub in order to get rid of dry and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It’s considered one of the most important aspects of any skincare routine because it helps prevent many skin problems while increasing blood circulation, equating to healthy and glowing skin.” Woo-hoo! I’m on the right track then. I usually use a chemical exfoliator in the shower a few times a week and of course I fully wash my face at the end of each day, so good to know that I’m doing the right things.
