Why do you need your routine & # 39; Marie Kondo & # 39; to give?

First of all, it is useful to know why cleaning up your beauty cabinet – or & # 39; Marie Kondoing & # 39; your routine is useful.

& # 39; Your skin can & # 39; & # 39; become immune to products because over time they may develop a tolerance for certain ingredients and formulas, & # 39; Melanie told FEMAIL.

& # 39; I like to cycle and try different seasonal products and depending on how my skin feels. & # 39;

When it comes to her loose cycle, the skincare expert said she is a fan of using lighter and more breathable products in the summer and heavier, more occlusive items in the winter.

& # 39; It is important to remember that skin care expires after opening, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; I would save nothing more than 12 months, less for organic products. Always store your products in a cool, dark environment or in the refrigerator. & # 39;

What should you keep if you have dry skin?

For those struggling with dry and flaky skin, Melanie said there are seven items that are worth keeping in the spring.

& # 39; Oil-based products specially developed for dry skin are a great idea & # 39 ;, she said.

Same as an antioxidant face oil, a hydrating serum that contains ingredients such as squalane, niacinamide and hyarulonic acid.

When it comes to a moisturizer, Melanie said that something & # 39; nourishing yet breathable & # 39; good for the day, before using & # 39; something richer and more occlusive at night.

& # 39; Search for ingredients such as shea butter, maringa and rosehip, & # 39; she said.

Finally, make a healing face mask and gentle enzyme exfoliant your best friend.

What should you clear up if you have dry skin?

If you suffer from dry skin, Melanie said there are several products that do more harm than good.

What is the ideal morning skin routine for all skin types?

* Gentle Cleanse

* Antioxidant Serum

* Eye care

* SPF moisturizer

& # 39; Get rid of too many active ingredients, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; Including one or two in your regime can certainly be useful – but the key is to look for soft actives and keep it simple.

& # 39; It is important that your regimen contains a careful balance of active substances, as well as soothing and nourishing products that nourish and protect the skin. & # 39;

Melanie said you should stay away from anything that is too intense – such as salicylic acid and glycolic acid, as well as highly perfumed and alcohol-based products.

What should you save if you have combination skin?

What is the ideal evening routine for all skin types?

* Double cleaning

* Corrective serum

Advertisements

* Eye care

* Moisturizer

* 2 – 3 x exfoliating

For those with combined skin, Melanie said it's all about balancing your oils and dryness.

& # 39; Hold an AHA-based cleanser, a water-based antioxidant serum and lightweight moisturizer, & # 39; she said.

You must also have an exfoliating physical scrub to be used two to three times a week, and a salicylic stain treatment for stains.

& # 39; A variety of face masks and multi-masking is a great way to address different concerns for a combination skin, & # 39; said Melanie.

Clay masks will work wonders on oily T-zones, while drying zones need a hydrating treatment.

If you want to get rid of some items and want a combination skin, Melanie said that beeswax, lanolin and other occlusive ingredients offer & zero benefits for oily or normal skin & # 39; (Melanie depicted with Phoebe Tonkin)

What should you clear up if you have combination skin?

What should all skin types always do?

* Check the use date of each product carefully.

* Everyone needs an SPF in their regimen and there is one for every skin type. Always use a broad spectrum UVA / UVB sunscreen to protect against all UV rays.

If you want to get rid of some items and want a combination skin, Melanie said that beeswax, lanolin, and other occlusive ingredients offer zero benefits for oily or normal skin.

The same can be said for drying cleaners that remove the skin surface and rough scrubs and exfoliants.

Finally, ditch soap – which is both irritating and drying out for your complexion type.

What should you keep if you have oily skin?

Oily skin types benefit well from cleansers based on gel or AHA, and BHA serums and face masks based on clay.

Melanie said that a salicylic acid stain treatment is also good for any imperfections.

What should you clear up if you have oily skin?

On the other hand, anything that is too heavy – such as a rich night cream or face oil – will add more oil to your face.

Milky cleansers are also bad news for your skin type.

What should you keep if you have sensitive skin?

What should all skin types always avoid?

* Do not immerse your fingers in pots, as this will spread bacteria and attack the product.

* Make sure your products are always sealed between uses – tighten the caps securely.

Finally, if you have sensitive skin, a mild oil-based cleanser or a milk-based solution is a must.

& # 39; A calming serum is also good, & # 39; said Melanie.

& # 39; Search for ingredients such as vitamin K, niacinamide, shea butter or sqalane. & # 39;

Gentle AHAs such as lactic acid or amino-based amino acids work well to wipe away dead skin, and a soothing moisturizer is the product for you.

What should you clear up if you have sensitive skin?

& # 39; Sensitivity can be exacerbated by incorrect use of active or aggressive skin care products, so be careful when using it, & # 39; said Melanie.

Avoid physical scrubs and glycolic acid, or something with an odor.

& # 39; Retinol should be dumped during periods of increased sensitivity, & # 39; Melanie concluded.
