Basic Skincare, Part One: Cleansing

Skin cleansing really shouldn’t be a complicated concept. But so many things have been shoved in your face, how can you really be expected to know what to do? Everyone has different skin, therefore the same product that works for your sister may not be for you, or what was a miracle for you may wreak havoc on your coworker’s face. And what’s promised by a YouTube makeup junkie who has mastered the art of hiding imperfections may not work for your low maintenance non-camoflauging makeup style (raises hand). We must first understand that everyone’s skin is different. Your skin type falls into one of four general categories: normal, oily, dry, or combination skin. Along with these skin types, you may also have a condition, such as sensitive skin, acne prone skin, sun damaged, dehydrated, or aging skin. You should have a good idea of your skin type/ condition combo before you choose a cleanser.
