The skin

The skin is the largest organ in the body. All of our skin is different from color, texture and feel. But the anatomy is all the same. We all have different skin types and should use different products tailored to our own skin. The most basic skincare routine that I feel everyone should follow is to cleanse and moisturize.

Skin changes

The skin changes throughout our lives. As we get older we lose collagen and our skin doesn't look as youthful as it did before. With the seasons changing, our skin changes as well. I myself do not use the same products I use in the winter as the summer. In the winter my skin gets drier. Meaning that I would use a creamier cleansers and thicker moisturizers. My makeup routine changes as well.

Skin moisturizers

Moisturizers can address many skin concerns. Dryness, acne, dark spots, etc. Its essential to wear moisturizer just to give your skin vibrant.
