When it comes to skin care products, we only want the best. There are so many choices, and we need to make a good choice from all that. Now the question is what to buy? When you are buying beauty products, you do not need to fill your shelf with all kinds of things. Just go for the basic ones that are absolutely necessary like sunscreen, cleanser and moisturizer.
Sunscreen or sun block works as a protector of your skin. This magic potion protects your skin from the scorching heat and the harmful ultra violet rays of the sun. Remember, sunscreen and sun blocks are two different things, even though it seems like they are same. Sun blocks create a barrier between your skin and the rays of the sun. They work like a protective shield. But sunscreen on the other hand works differently. It absorbs the UV rays, but does not let the skin absorb it. You can use any one of them to protect your skin from the sun.
Cleanser is another important component. It cleans the dirt that accumulates on the skin. There are different types of cleansers available for different types of skin. Go for the one that is made for your skin. Those who have natural skin can use any natural cleanser.
Those with sensitive skin have to be extra careful. It is better to avoid cleansers that contain chemicals. Also avoid harsh face wash and soaps as well as grainy body scrubs. Harsh face wash and cleansers will take away the natural moisturizer and make the skin dry. Grainy scrubs will shed off the upper layer of the skin, which is the protective layer. This will leave the skin exposed to heat and pollution. Organic cleansers are helpful for both oily and sensitive skin. But those who have combination skin should find the cleanser that is specially made for combination skin.
Moisturizer keeps your skin well hydrated and also protects the skin from the dirt and make up that compile on the skin. Moisturizer is a must for every skin type.
There you go, now you know what you must have in your shelf when it comes to skin care.
