What motivates you the most to do your skincare routine?

Are you afraid of acne breakout?

There are many different types of skin disorders both women and men have problem with, and the most common one is ACNE prone skin.

Acne or Acne Vulgaris is a skin disorder, that manifests its symptoms in many ways. In general, you can divide this condition into two categories, noninflammatory and inflammatory. And within these two categories are found dozens of subcategories (blackheads/whiteheads, cysts, nodules etc.)

There are numerous causes of this common disorder and one of them is HORMONAL IMBALANCE. And yes, you can have this even your teenage years passed long time ago. If you are in your 30s and about to get a period, you might think that breakout on your face was caused by eating small piece of chocolate while PMS-ing or by forgetting to deep clean your face with that super promising expensive skin care product. That zit would show up anyway. You can’t put all the blame to food that you eat. And for sure don’t get upset for all those mornings you woke up with leftovers of the makeup on your face you just had no energy to clean off night before.

So what do you think is the reason why so many people fail to get rid of acne?

One of the reasons is - you can’t treat hormonal imbalance with a facial cream. Skin care products can help you to ease the symptoms, but to cure the condition, you need to find out what is exactly the main cause of the problem.

Best thing to do is to make an appointment with your dermatologist who can help you understand your skin problem rather than trying to test skin care products on your own.

Of course, there are many things you can do for your skin to prevent acne. Besides discovering what types of food affect your skin in a different way, cleaning your face is essential.

What type of daily skin care routine are you looking for? Regardless of how many products you usually like to use, it all starts with simple washing. That’s to assume your face has no make-up on it. ‘No pain no gain’ doesn’t apply to skin care, and that means you are not helping your skin by rubbing vigorously cleanser both to wash your face and to take make up off - at the same time. Your face after, shouldn’t look like somebody just gave you a few slaps. So to avoid that, use separate product to take the make-up off, and different one for cleaning. Apply GENTLY.

There are so many make-up removers on the market and its not easy to find THE ONE that does the job for you.

That’s because we all have different skin types, and we all use different make-up products. We are all spending days in a different type of an environment that affect our skin in a different way. What works for me maybe won’t work for you. And that’s the reason why you won’t find THE BEST ONE AND ONLY ONE PRODUCT out there. There is always going to be THE NEXT ONE to try.

Skin changes as we age, and our environment changes daily. It's not the same now as it was three weeks ago. Maybe you haven’t had enough sleep, maybe you had too much coffee, and maybe humidity in the air was too low. And all of this shows on our faces.

Now back to make-up remover. Years ago, I stopped spending money on different make-up removers. You know, one for face, different for eyes, another special one for hard waterproof mascara. And of course, I had one of those red lipsticks that won’t go off easily no matter what kind of make-up remover you try. At one point in my life I just gave up on all of them. I had too much of everything and became all too expensive. So, I switched to oil. I was already using it in my hair routine so why not test it as a make-up remover.

Regular olive oil. Or any other natural oil. Not skin care product with dozens of ingredients where one of them in certain percentage is olive oil, but 100% olive oil. It is interesting that even among 100% olive oils you will find differences in look and taste depending on the countries or regions they are produced from. But that’s another topic to discuss.

Jojoba oil also proved as a valuable part of my skin care routine as it feels slightly lighter on the skin. And both can be used in the hair care routine too.

In conclusion, this is the base for any skin routine you choose to do: first remove the make-up, but make sure the product really does the job by gentle applying with no reaction on your skin after it.
