If you have no idea were to start I say look for a solid 3 part system to begin with and add products for your specific needs as you go along.
- Cleanser-find a cleanser that works for your skin type. Gel and Foam work great for oil, creams are best for dry skin types. Steer away from heavily medicated/ acne cleansers in the beginning. Sometimes the skin breaks out because of misdiagnosing skin type or over cleansing. Simply finding the right cleanser does wonders.
- Serum/Treatment- Find a serum or target treatment that will focus on a particular skin concern you have. Serums are much more concentrated and can aid in changing skin condition.
- Moisturizer- Everyone needs a moisturizer,period. Find one that is oil-free, with an SPF of at least 30, no exceptions. The sun is your biggest enemy when it comes to aging and dealing with issues like hyper pigmentation/acne scarring.
Start here and add products like eye creams, exfoliating scrubs, masks,etc once you get your skin focused in on a solid 3 part system.
I love lines like Dermalogica and Kiehl’s for beginners, they take a lot of the guess work out of skincare and the product selection is pretty amazing.
