If you have normal skin, you’ll know that you’re lucky enough to not have to deal with acne, breakouts and rough, dry patches on the face.
However, you’ll also know that despite this, you still need to follow a strict skincare regime using good quality products in order to keep it this way!
Here are some important points in keeping your normal skin type fresh and healthy.
1. Be Alert
While normal skin may not be at risk from developing lines and wrinkles as early as skin that is dry, you’ll need to watch for telltale signs of aging, especially around the eyes and mouth area.
Finding a good quality, peptide-rich treatment, such as Solvaderm’s Stemuderm, will reduce muscle contractions which, in turn, discourages fine lines from forming and fortifies the skin matrix.
2. Ditch the Soap
While it’s tempting to just wash the face with whatever soap comes to hand, using a specially formulated cleanser will have multiple benefits and keep skin from becoming over-dry.
Many soaps contain harsh cleaning ingredients whereas a quality cleanser will have the ability to cleanse thoroughly while preserving the skin’s natural oils.
3. Say No to the Sun
Protecting your skin from the sun is one of the most important things you can do and will drastically reduce your chances of developing age spots, deep wrinkles and other signs of photo-aging.
While it goes without saying that you should always use sunscreen, products such as ACE-Ferulic provide complete protection from ultra radiation and help to lighten areas already affected by hyperpigmentation.
4. Drink it Up
Even if your skin is generally clear and blemish-free you still need to make sure that you stay hydrated, even in the winter when it can become dried out from central heating.
Drinking water throughout the day flushes out toxins, helping to maintain a blemish-free, evenly textured complexion.
5. Tone Up
Most of us are guilty of skipping the step of toning in our daily skincare routine, especially if we have a normal skin type.
While it might seem unnecessary, using a toner after washing the face not only wipes away any traces of cleanser and excess dirt and make-up, but it will also help reduce pore size and balance the skin’s PH levels.
Solvaderm’s Maxatone, part of their Daily Skin Care System, is perfect for rehydrating the skin and improving its clarity and texture.
6. Exfoliate with Care
Scrubbing away at the skin to get rid of those pore-clogging dead skin cells will leave your skin red, rough and irritated. and while exfoliation is an essential skincare step, a once-a-week treatment is enough for normal skin.
The natural alpha-hydroxy acids contained in Solvaderm’s Glowpeel will boost the skin’s complexion and gently smooth away dead cells that give the skin a dull, tired appearance.
7. Choose Right at Night
Skin repairs itself when we’re asleep, making it the perfect time to use a rich serum that increases suppleness, elasticity and vital collagen levels.
The Stemnucell serum in the Solvaderm range uses stem cells that encourage self-healing, increases cell longevity and promotes the production of collagen to create a youthful, wrinkle-free complexion.
8. Moisturize Right
Although your skin may not be prone to dry, flaky patches, using a moisturizer on a daily basis will have numerous benefits. Not only will it provide a smooth surface for applying foundation, but it will also create a barrier that protects the skin from bacteria, dirt and irritants.
Choosing a product that is formulated with SPF protection too, such as Solvaderm’s Dermaxsol, means that your skin is less susceptible to the damaging effects of UVA rays and early signs of photo-aging.
