Hello skin care connoisseurs! Welcome to the Neat Skin Care Co. NY blog.
This is where you'll find interesting tips, trivia and quirky, fun facts about skin and skin care.
Our first blog post is from our very own Skin Care 101 page. It's a treasure trove of useful information that we felt compelled to spotlight it for our very first blog entry.
Before we became such "Neat-freaks" ourselves we were just as confused as you on how to use skin care products the right way. Because yes, there is a correct sequence of applying skin care products properly! After all that you're investing in quality skin care products, applying it properly is a must-do to achieve maximum results.
We hope you enjoy reading our first journey into skin care blogging.
Getting the occasional professional facial procedure at a spa does NOT replace a daily skin care routine. Adapting an at-home daily skin care regimen is the best way to maintain healthy, glowing skin and prevent breakouts.
Additionally, just using sunscreen everyday can dramatically reduce redness and irritation. Make it a habit to use sun protection everyday.
Correct way of applying skin care products:
STEP 1: CLEANSE
It’s important to cleanse your face to help rid it of impurities before moving forward with the rest of your skin care routine and heading out for the day or getting ready for bed. Cleansers can strip the skin of hydration, which is why it’s important to use a hydrating and nourishing skin cleanser. Use our Radiance Skin Cleanser. It is a sulfate-free cleanser that does not disrupt your skin's pH or weaken its barrier. It also detoxifies and hydrates.
STEP 2: REVITALIZE/TREAT
This is where the most active products in your routine come in. You want them on clean, bare skin without dead cell build-up, to give the products the best chance of penetrating deeply.
Use Luminous Peptide Elixir, Retinol Youth Recharge Serum, Glowing Day Serum.
STEP 3: MOISTURIZE
To choose the perfect moisturizer, consider the following guideline:
Normal and combination skin: This type of skin is neither too dry nor too oily. In order to maintain the natural moisture balance of the skin, it is recommended to use a water-based moisturizer that has a light and non-greasy feeling. Use Selfie Magic Facial Moisturizer.
Dry skin: For those with dry skin type, choose a moisturizer that helps to restore moisture to the skin. It is better to use an oil-based, cream moisturizer that contains moisture boosting ingredients. These products will help keep your skin hydrated. Use Boost Complex C Moisturizer.
Oily skin: Acne is a common problem for oily skin. Though oily in nature, you need to apply a suitable moisturizer on your oily skin. Use Selfie Magic Organic Jojoba+ Pomegrante+Lemongrass+Vit. E or Selfie Magic Organic Argan+ Sweet Orange +Vit. E Facial Oils.
Oily skin is the result of overactive sebaceous glands in the skin. Applying facial oils on the affected parts will show amazing results. It may seem counterintuitive to use oil on oily skin, but our cold pressed, additive free oils can help reduce oiliness. This is by modulating sebum production.
Sensitive skin: For sensitive skin, use a moisturizer that contains soothing ingredients such as aloe vera. Make sure the product does not contain fragrances or dyes. Use Selfie Magic Facial Moisturizer.
Mature skin: As you age, your skin tends to become drier as the oil-producing glands become less active. To keep your skin soft and well hydrated, opt for an oil-based moisturizer along with antioxidants to combat age related skin problems like wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and so on. Use Selfie Magic Facial Oil Argan+Sweet Orange+Vit. E and Selfie Magic Facial Oil Jojoba+Pomegranate +Lemongrass+Vit. E.
STEP 4: PAMPER
Applying facial masks is the perfect way to give your face the extra pampering it needs to withstand and combat the daily stressors our skin endures. From environmental free-radical agents, other stress related, hormone induced skin breakouts to sun exposure, facial masks is that added special treat our skin needs.
Clay masks help draw oil and dirt to the surface of the skin. Kaolin clay provides light tightening and sebum-absorbing effects. Use Keep It Smooth Masque to tone, hydrate, nourish, draw out impurities, help blemishes heal, calm and soothe, and rejuvenate skin.
Whatever level your skin care game is at, whether you're just looking for that perfect cleanser (Radiance Cleanser) or maybe you're ready to step it up with more targeted products for revitalizing and rejuvenating your skin (Luminous Peptide Elixir, Retinol Youth Recharge Night Creme, Glowing Day Serum), we've got all your skin care needs.
