Caring For Normal Skin


Hardly anyone wakes up with clear, glowing skin these days. Even if they consume adequate amounts of water, eat healthily and exercise. That’s because there are pollutants in the air that greatly affect the texture of your skin and cause your skin to appear dull and tired. It’s only with the right routine and products that you’ll be able to achieve the “natural beauty” that everyone is raving about.


As many with normal skin types, you’ll probably experience dull, tired looking skin and your texture may be slightly rough and worn. You’d want to restore your skin to the radiant, glowing and smooth texture you know it can be.


If you follow the routine we’ve outlined in this post (and our product recommendations) you’ll achieve your best look and your best skin in no time at all.

But, before we dive into the routine – do you really have “normal skin?”


Normal skin is characterized by not being too dry or oily. People with dry skin will generally have a feeling of tightness on their face, and if not moisturized properly will lead to peeling. Whereas people with oily skin will experience oiliness on their nose, forehead, cheeks, and chin. Someone with normal skin may have some oil on their nose and forehead, but in most cases, oiliness will not be an issue.

So, how do you take care of your normal skin?


Well, I’m glad you asked.


Like all skin types, if you want to have fabulous skin you’ve got to take care of it. That all starts with developing the right routine.

To do that you can start by following the exact process we’ve outlined in this post:

Step 1: Cleanse


The first step to enviable skin is to cleanse. You want a cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of all its natural oils (sebum) or disrupt its PH. An effective cleanser that will remove the pollutants from your skin and make your skin feel like it can breathe again.

Step 2: Tone


You don’t need to use a toner both in the morning and the evening unless you apply makeup heavily. What a toner does is allow your skin to absorb whatever you’re applying next. This should be a good moisturizer or serum. If you want all the benefits of a moisturizer to penetrate your skin (and not just leave an oily residue) you need to have used a toner.

Step 3: Moisturize


You can moisturize with either a serum or a regular moisturizer. Serums usually exclude occlusive ingredients that prevent the moisture you’ve placed on your skin from escaping. As a result, they’re usually lighter than moisturizers and absorb into your skin far better. However, they’ll also evaporate quickly and won’t leave your skin moisturized for lengthy periods because they haven’t sealed in moisture. What they do though, is target your skin on a cellular level to improve various aspects like hydration, aging, and dryness.

Step 4: Add Sunscreen


Once you’ve moisturized, you’ll add sunscreen as a layer of protection against sun damage. Even if the weather outside is overcast you still need to apply sunscreen. Sunscreen doesn’t just protect your skin against the sun that you see, but the UVA/UVB rays you don’t see. If you don’t want to end up having tons of patches and blotches of uneven skin or sunspots, you better apply a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 20 during the winter, and SPF 50 or higher in the summer.

In the evening you should repeat these steps (minus the sunscreen).

Optional steps:


Twice a week you should exfoliate and apply a mask. By exfoliating, you’re removing all the dead skin cells that have accumulated over time, allowing your natural, healthy glow to shine through.


A mask, on the other hand, can serve different purposes, from providing in-depth moisture to deeply exfoliate your skin.


At the end of the day, you can have healthy, radiant skin in no time at all, if you simply follow the steps we’ve gone over. And, in no time at all, you’ll be able to post beautiful #bareface selfies online.
