10 Ways Obianuju Is Overhauling Her Skincare Routine

You may remember thesuper-involved skincare routinepost I wrote a while ago. While my current routine is different, it certainly isn’t less involved (oops). The skincare routine I was following in my last post was formed after a couple months of beingreally到护肤品。现在,我(惊讶)even more到护肤品。More specifically, I have been reading up on cosmetic chemistry and the research behind skincare (I’m a forever student). So, a few months ago, I set out to make drastic changes to my skincare routine based on this research.

I had a 10 goals in mind when crafting my new skincare routine:

1.消除不良类型的酒

上有破坏作用坏醇可以有你的皮肤上了大量的研究。也就是说,虽然他们可能在短期内减少油,从长远来看,石油破坏皮肤的保湿屏障,并导致多余的油脂生产的不断分拆补偿。请注意,我说的“坏”醇;这些成分如醇代纳。,乙醇,和异丙醇。好是脂肪醇,你不必从远离,如鲸蜡醇,硬脂和鲸蜡硬脂醇。你可以阅读更多关于这herehere,andhere

2.消除香味

香水护肤会加重皮肤敏感。即使人没有敏感的皮肤,继续使用带有香味的护肤品皮肤敏感性随着时间的推移。你可能会认为,为避免这种情况,你可以坚持到无香料产品。事实证明,大部分产品标有“不含香料”通常是指“合成香料无”。然而,自然的香味依然敏感,应避免使用。这意味着,要避免像薰衣草精油芳香精油护肤品,玫瑰花提取物,柠檬等。

我还没有完全摆脱我的香水护肤品收藏,但我慢慢地淘汰出去,没有购买任何新产品,香水(天然或合成)

3.介绍的抗氧化剂,特别是维生素C

Now that I’m in my early 20s, post teenage-acne life (though, let’s be clear, my acne is still hanging around) has left me with some acne scars and dark marks. Incorporating antioxidants like Vitamin C into your routine is generally always recommended, but it’s especially useful if you’re looking for that coveted “glow”.

4.介绍视黄醇缓慢

一个在我的护肤之旅较大的新发展,是早期使用的抗衰老成分。视黄醇是那些大国的产品大家推荐一个。因为我还年轻,我限制我的视黄醇的使用,以每周两次,最多。

5. Avoid negative ingredient interactions

This one really made designing a new routine painstaking (I’m talking several months of adjustments, furious reading, and Googling). There are a number of great配料你不应该混因担心刺激(例如果酸/的BHA和视黄醇)或使其失活(维生素C和果酸/的BHA)。

1)维生素C和视黄醇,2)维生素C和果酸/的BHA(又名像乙醇酸,水杨酸,乳酸等去角质剂),3)和视黄醇:使用以下在一天的同一时间我的新程序避免了果酸/的BHA。它是一个令人费解的探戈,我不得不跳舞协调这些组合的回避,但我终于想通了。专家们对其中一些连击是否是真正有害的分歧,但我想避免他们不能伤害。

6. Limit physical exfoliation and avoid over-exfoliation

I find physical exfoliation to be too harsh and counterproductive for acneic skin, and so do these expertsherehere,andhere。When using physical exfoliates like scrubs or cleansing devices, you’re tempted to rub too hard. In skincare, sometimes we have this illusion that the more wefeelthe better it’s working. It’s easy to think that the harder you scrub the better, or that the more something makes your face tingle (read: burn) the more effective it is.

I’ve decided that beautyisn’t痛。我不希望有什么感觉,为了划伤或燃烧我的脸,我知道它的工作。所以,我个人坚持与果酸及的BHA的大部分时间化学剥脱。每隔两个星期,我在物理上与细棉布去角质,清洁刷,或supergentlescrub. Side note: I’m all for physical exfoliation on other parts of my body; I’m always here for a good lip, hand, or body scrub with fine exfoliating granules.

我也只能去角质,每周3次,以避免过度去角质。

7.在夜双人清洗

双重清洁是稍有争议(如几乎所有护肤)。许多人及专家发誓它,并告诉你,为了去除污垢,彩妆,防晒霜你必须double cleanse at night (first with an oil-based cleanser, then with a water-based one). You can read some pro-double cleansing sourcesherehere,andhere。其他人则认为双重清洁或者是unnecessary作为现代清洁剂往往有油和表面活性剂,或可以与其他产品的渗透干扰因为油分子太大。

因为我是油性皮肤因为我涂防晒霜(人人应该!),我双祓大多数晚上,但并非总是如此。

8.更加勤奋与保湿

我倒猎物神话,油性肌肤不需要保湿了这么久。不过不用担心,我已被释放的我错误的方式,现在我发誓滋润日夜适合我的皮肤类型的润肤品。

9. Hone the optimal order of products

我已经做得相当好这个在我的第一护肤程序。我得到了基本的洗面奶,爽肤水,血清,保湿军令如山倒。但我现在血清前,而不是作为最后一步涂抹眼霜。如果你涂抹眼霜last,the serums and moisturizer you applied earlier mightinterfere with the absorption of your eye cream

10.保持卫生的工具和软

的卫生与# 6(re: physical exfoliation); I parted with cleansing brushes not just because they are a form of physical exfoliation, but also because of how easy it is for bacteria to breed on brush heads.

I now use来自The Body Shop的面部法兰绒这是比任何我曾经在我的生活经历了较软的(强烈推荐)。我一直在约15藏匿,并在洗衣前折腾使用1每天它,是因为卫生越好。我已经使用也开始资生堂化妆棉instead of my usual drugstore cotton rounds to apply toner. The Shiseido facial cotton pads areSOOOmuch softer and aren’t really more expensive ($10 for 165 pads).

鉴于这些10个进球,我终于能够设计出一种新的护肤程序。敬请期待一个帖子详细介绍了未来几周我的新的和改进的护肤程序!
