Your Questions About Skincare

William asks…


What’s the steps of skincare, first washing off by facewash, then cleansing, then toning and finally moisturizing? I actually want to know which one should be first, using facewash to wash off face or using cleanser? I know later would be toning and moisturizing.

Hi! It’s awesome that you’re asking about the correct steps as there is a LOT of misinformation out there. There are 3 basic steps: Cleanse, Tone, and Moisturize. You first Cleanse with your choice of cleanser; the cleanser can come in a lot of different varieties (like dry skin/oily skin/sensitive skin) and also different consistencies (cream/lotion/foam). Yes it can also be called face wash or face cleaner or face soap (NEVER actually use soap on your face as it will mess up the pH balance). Put the cleanser on your face and wash off with warm water with your hands or a washcloth (try not to use a washcloth more than 2 or 3 times because of bacteria buildup). Then, you’ll need to fine a Toner (sometimes called astringent or refresher). This is ALWAYS a liquid product that you apply on your skin using a cotton puff. Last step is Moisturize, and as you can imagine there are many types of moisturizers as well. A lot of them come in jars or bottles, some with SPF protection and vitamins, some more basic. You should do all 3 steps both morning and night for optimal results and try to be consistent. If you have any questions or need me to recommend products, just email me!

Oil of Olay works WONDERS! Buy one of their facial mask creams, and some of their daily use products. In just a few days (2-3) your pimples will look ready to burst, which at this point I would say its okay. But continue using the products daily and your skin will clear up!
Low on cash? : You can use things at home to make your own all natural healthy products.
The best natural skin product is honey!
