STEP 1: FACIAL CLEANSER
First things first, remember to wash your hands with soap before starting your skincare routine!!!
Then, pick out a facial cleanser that suits your skin type. PS: If you have dry skin, stay away from the foamy face wash. Instead, try something gentle that is fragrance-free, alcohol-free and contains hyaluronic acid for all that H2O goodness. Also, do not go for antibacterial soaps and cleansers with exfoliators such as salicylic or glycolic acid that can turn you skin into the Sahara Desert.
For oily skin, anything with aloe vera and tea tree oil is a must-have as they balance oil production and support skin clarity. If your man has got acne-prone skin, tell him to wash his face twice a day with a salicylic acid-based cleanser that is responsible for unclogging pores and getting rid of excess oil.
Lastly, sensitive and combination skin desperately need an ultra-gentle cleaner so find on that is fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, paraben-free and soap-free to avoid skin irritation. Heads up, micellar water is your best friend.
