In today’s TikTok and Instagram culture, it may seem overwhelming trying to keep up with all the various beauty and skincare products that seem to go viral overnight, and each one is a ‘must-have’. The hidden gems that people share on the internet are definitely handy, and a lot of them really do deserve the hype, but introducing so many new products to your skin in a short amount of time can also do more harm than good.
As challenging as it might be to find the best regimen that suits everyone’s individual skin types and skin concerns, such as clogged pores, acne, and anti-aging, just to name a few, there are plenty of beauty products out there that suit more than one skin type. Lots of skincare products target more than just one skin concern, making it even easier to treat skin concerns like dehydration and dullness.
We’ve rounded up some of the best beauty products on the market that we think are suitable for everyone, no matter your skin type, so keep reading below for the best tips and beauty advice!
All good skincare routines start with a good cleanser, and you might be surprised to hear that even if you have combo or oily skin, your skin still needs to be hydrated! You might find that it is because of dehydration that your skin is overproducing oils to compensate, so if your hydration levels are balanced, you can be sure that your skin will be refreshed and won’t get as shiny throughout the day. Skin dehydration is also affected by how much water you drink in a day, so if that’s something you struggle with, it’s worth trying to increase your H2O levels to help!
A PH balancing cleanser really will do the job for everyone. The PH balancing factor means that it has the ability to restore the natural PH level of the skin, and the hydrating element means that gentle ingredients such as aloe vera and cucumber extract will wash away any impurities of the day without making your skin feel dry or stripped, which can often make your skin feel tight and uncomfortable.
This is a gentle enough product to use in the morning before you begin your day, but we also recommend it to be used at the end of a long day to deeply remove your makeup and hydrate your skin before you sleep.
Another staple product that we recommend everyone keep handy in their bags, especially with the warmer months coming up, is a good facial mist. It feels incredible to spray onto your skin thanks to the fine mister that makes it feel like your skin is having a drink of water, and it can be used in more ways than one.
Whether it’s simply to refresh and give yourself a little pick me up during the day or you want to use it to set your makeup, a facial mist has all the means to do just that. It can even be used as a toner or a primer before applying makeup if you don’t like the traditional feel of a primer!
With the warmer months will also come increased environmental factors like air pollution will begin to show themselves on your skin, so a facial mist is a great way to keep the bacteria and other chemicals away from your skin. Though it may absorb into your skin, it will also act as an excellent barrier of protection as well!
If you are someone who is just starting out with all things skincare related, then it’s important to note that if you want to keep your routine as simple as possible, then you need three great products. A good cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF.
And if you consider yourself to be a bit of a pro with skincare, then you’ll know that everything you apply to your face needs to be locked in with a good moisturizer so that your skin can absorb all those yummy nutrients and benefits of any skincare products you might have applied beforehand.
We recommend you make moisturizer a part of your daily routine, and moisturizers that include ingredients such as rose are particularly hydrating without feeling greasy or heavy on the skin. It absorbs almost instantly, meaning that you can move immediately on to the next step or call it a day there (after applying SPF!).
There are even special moisturizers dedicated for nighttime use, which are a little bit heavier because they include enriching ingredients that are supposed to work their magic overnight when you don’t mind too much looking a little shinier than usual. A good night moisturizer will usually have antioxidant properties and extracts from peach and lotus to help your skin recover and detoxify overnight, ready for a busy day the next morning!
