The ultimate beginner's guide to skin care
At first, it can seem overwhelming to establish a proper skincare routine. But we got you covered! In this article, you'll find out where to begin and what to avoid when building your perfect skincare routine.
If you are new to skincare or don't have any specific skin concerns, a basic routine will do.

Basic skin care consists of cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection (we've compiled everything you need to know about protecting yourself from the sun here).

The basic skincare products may vary depending on the skin type, so we've rounded up the best products for each one.

Skin type, in turn, depends on the amount of sebum it produces. There are four types: dry, oily, combination, normal.

Sebum is a crucial component of the skin. On the one hand, it protects the skin from drying out by slowing down water evaporation, and on the other hand, it prevents dirt and bacteria from penetrating the skin layers. In essence, sebum is a protective barrier that benefits our skin. It also moisturizes the skin, making it soft and smooth.
Dry skin
Dry skin doesn’t produce a sufficient amount of sebum and it doesn’t have glossy shine and visible pores. And in dry skin, the lack of sebum causes wrinkles to appear sooner.

When caring for dry skin, it's vital to use gentle cleansers that won't strip the skin of its natural oils and compromise its protective barrier. The best cleansers for dry skin come in the form of milk, cream, or non-foaming gel.

For moisturizing and sun protection, choose thick textures with ceramides and oils.

Oily skin
Oily skin tends to look shiny and has visible pores due to excess sebum production. Comedones and inflammation are also common problems with oily skin. Some may say it's better to clean oily skin with aggressive drying products, but in fact, overdrying can provoke even more sebum production.

For cleansing, look for products with acids and niacinamide, as these will balance the excess sebum production.

For moisturizing, choose the lightest textures of fluids or cream gels. In the warm season, it may be enough to use sunscreen with moisturizing properties.

Combination skin

Combination skin usually has oily areas (nose, forehead, and chin) and dry areas (cheeks, skin around the eyes, and sides of the face). It may appear more oily in summer and dry in winter.

To properly care for your combination skin type, it is crucial to take a gentle and thoughtful approach. When selecting skincare products, opt for those that effectively moisturize the skin without overloading it.

It's better to trust your instincts when choosing a cleanser. For example, you can choose a cleanser for oily skin, observe the effects and adjust accordingly. If the reaction is unpleasant (for example, the skin feels tight after washing), try products for dry skin.

It's better to have two moisturizing products: one with a lighter texture and another with a thicker one that can be combined as needed.

Normal skin
Normal skin produces an optimal amount of sebum and doesn't cause much trouble.

Here you can really experiment a lot with different textures and formats of products. The main thing is that they fulfill their tasks and are comfortable for your skin.
