Everyone has different skin types, and it also reacts differently to the different seasons and weather conditions. For instance, winters make the face a lot drier than usual, and the summers makes the skin oily. For some others, the weather does not matter, for their skin is permanently oily and sticky. Needless to say, caring for the skin regardless of skin type is imperative. One of the key aspects of skincare - face wash, which dermatologists recommend you do at least twice a day: once in the morning after you wake, and at night, as part of your night-time skincare routine.
But, there are lot of people who don't even know some specific techniques, based on the skin type. Find out more about it here.
* For dry skin: If you have skin that stays dry all day long, you need to exercise caution while washing your face, otherwise it will turn drier, itchy and more flaky. Also, dry skin is understood to be more sensitive than regular skin. Use a face wash which is alcohol free, paraben free and fragrance free. Make sure you choose the one that leaves your face feeling hydrated. You can also use a little bit of face oil.
* For oily skin: Oily skin makes you more prone to acne. You are recommended to use a mild face wash which is ideally foam-based and has cleansing gel in it. When you wake up in the morning, wash your face with cold water and the face wash and then dab gently with a clean towel. Don't forget to apply the toner (rose water), followed by cleansing milk for effective skincare.
* For combination skin: This can be tricky, but you need to avoid products which are too strong for you and can possibly strip you of your natural oils. People who have combination skin, their T-zone, forehead and chin are oily, while the rest of the face is dry. It is advisable that you use a face wash which has exfoliation properties.
