When we wake up in the morning there is one thing that we cannot avoid before officially getting ready for the day. That is cleansing your face. Every good skincare regimen starts with cleansing. Some use soap, some have a acne cleanser or something to combat a skin issue, while some just use plain water. Whatever method you use, this is your first step. In another article we talked about how pre-cleansing with Olive Oil is a great way to combat oily skin as well as dry skin. You can refer back to the article HERE.
The next step to your facial care is a exfoliator. This is the method of removing dead skin cells from your face with a scrub. Some are made with sea salt, sugar, or even sand. This is not a daily process however. This step should only be done 2~3 times per week. Making sure to alternate days. When acne is an issue sometimes it is recommended daily for a week or so during the first part of treatment.
Third is your mask. This is an imortant step because we want to inject our skin with nutrients, more collagen and moisture that will last us throughout the week. This is a step that is done once a week or once every 2 weeks usually at night when we have time to just relax and let it sit long enough to do what we need it to. There are so many different types of masks that that is a post all in its own. Hmmmm...look out for that soon. Your mask will usually sit for about 10-20 minutes depending on what it is used for.
The Final steps can be done all in one. If you are pampering yourself and really taking your time you can break the steps down. This is the step where you will add your serums, moisturizers and if it is in the morning and you are going out into the elements, you will apply your sunscreen. Many like to add the sunscreen into the moisturizer to keep their skin from being chalky or have that white film from the sunscreen. However, there is now a skin care system that have a sunscreen that will not leave that white film. It is by Image Skin Care. It came out this Spring in their World Wide Launch of new products that A Lil Me Time had the privilege of assisting in.

Well there you have it. It is the beginning of a beautiful relationship with your face. We seem to be in a hurry everyday. Sometimes with just enough time to wash our face and brush our teeth. But then we find those little fine lines and wrinkles that creep up and that is when we decide take action. If only we just take a few extra minutes before they show their dirty lil heads, we can have a head start on aging and just keep it at bay.
