Exfoliators are also believed to improve skin circulation and promote healthy skin cell turnover, which keeps the skin youthful looking.
The toner—perhaps one of the most misunderstood products in a skincare routine
serves to restore the pH balance of the skin after cleansing. To explain further, the skin normally has a slightly acidic pH, which helps to guard it against any harsh environmental factors. However,the skin tends to become basic after cleansing, which leaves it vulnerable to environmental radicals. A toner immediately corrects the pH imbalance, restoring skin to its healthy acidic state. Toners also make the skin more receptive to anti-aging serums and moisturizers.
The main function of a facial serum is to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin in order to deliver concentrated skin nutrients. With smaller particles and a lighter texture than most moisturizers, skincare serums will go further and work harder than a typical moisturizer, which generally only reach the surface layers of the skin.
The function of the moisturizer in any skincare routine is to replace moisture in the skin that might have been stripped by the environment and from cleansing. Moisturizers promote healthy skin hydration levels along with a healthy skin texture. The anti-aging moisturizer does all of that, with the added benefits of reducing wrinkles, boosting radiance, and promoting healthy skin cell turnover.
With this knowledge of basic skincare product types, finding the products that you need will be a snap. Stay tuned for part 2, which is all about key skincare ingredients!
