5 Skin Care Products & Their Benefits, Lincoln, Nebraska

With countless skin care products available on the market, you might wonder what you really need and how your skin will change—especially if you have started thinking about cosmetic procedures like face-lifts. Fortunately, by understanding the science behind skincare, you can pave the way for a beautiful complexion. Here are five skin care products and their benefits. 

5 Skin Care Products You Need

1. Exfoliator

Over time, dead skin cells can build up on the face, clogging the pores and causing comedones. Exfoliators are designed to remove dead skin cells by either using fine abrasives or chemical exfoliants that loosen plugs inside of pores. You should use exfoliators a few times a week, paying close attention to how your skin responds to the treatment. 

2. Cleanser

You should cleanse your skin with a face wash designed for your complexion in the morning and evening, especially after exfoliating the skin. Cleansers remove dirt, oil, and makeup from the surface of the skin, preventing breakouts. 

3. Toner

faceliftSince cleansers and exfoliators can change the pH of your skin, toners are sometimes recommended to bring things back into balance. Some toners also contain additional ingredients to mattify the complexion, soothe redness, or remove more oil from the skin. 

4. Serum 

Sometimes called “face-lifts in a bottle,” serums help with everything from fine lines and wrinkles to age spots. In addition to containing some moisturizing properties, serums are designed to restore nutrients like vitamins C and E back to the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and improving the tone of the skin. Although infusing the skin with macronutrients can help to prevent the look of aging, face-lifts are sometimes necessary to tighten the skin.

5. Lotion

After serum has sunk into the skin, lotions are used to seal the surface of the face, while preventing dry, flaky skin. For best results, lotions should be applied within five minutes of cleansing the face. Some women use lighter lotions in the morning to prevent oily skin and heavier creams at night to plump and moisturize the face.
