I have been wanting to do a skin care article for quite some time now, because I finally have the experience to talk confidently about the subject. About three years ago I started learning all I could about dermatology, with a focus on facial skin care specifically. I read books, researched online, watched documentaries, and even subscribed to Dr. Schultz’s wonderful YouTube channel dermTVdotcom. All of this exploration has lead to a clearer understanding of skin and what it takes to care for it. So without further ado, here’s what I’ve found works best for my skin.
My Normal to Dry Skin Care Routine in 5 Easy Steps
- In the morning upon waking I wash my hands followed by my face with warm water.
- After my face is wet, I apply a pea-sized amount of 100% Pure Nourishing Carrot Facial Scrub, and in a circular motion work this into the skin for 30 seconds.
This product is worth every penny and it smells amazing. I noticed a huge difference from my previous cleanser that contained sulfates, which stripped all of the moisture out of my skin and left it feeling very tight. I’m a believer in the saying \”You get what you pay for\”, BUT you also have to be knowledgeable about what you’re putting on your skin. Not all expensive things are good, and $18 is not bad compared to some products I’ve purchased in the name of skin care. Be aware that the skin absorbs everything straight into the bloodstream and can be more harmful than eating toxic things. When eating something harmful, let’s say processed foods filled with chemicals, the body can digest and filter it. There is no such thing when it comes to topically applying something to your skin. All of those bad ingredients just seep right into your blood.
