Different skin types need to be treated with different techniques and products. However, there are some basic skin care rules that apply to all skin types, which can help you to maintain healthy, glowing skin:

Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 each day to protect from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Gently exfoliate once a week to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Wash with a mild cleanser each day to rid the skin of dirt and impurities, and moisturize daily to replenish moisture, hydrate the skin, and prevent dry patches.

Gently pat your skin dry with a towel after washing, this helps keep as much moisture in as possible. Make sure you get around 7 - 9 hours of sleep each night – a lack of sleep can make your skin appear dull and tired. Eat a balanced, healthy diet.

Avoid bad habits like smoking, which can be bad for your skin and health in general. Read on for more tips on how to treat individual skin types so you can cater your skin care regime to your skin’s specific needs.
