You cannot go into a store and buy any products and hope that work, everyone has different skin types and different products that work for them. So you need to find out about your skin type.
Oily skin appears greasy and shiny, especially on the nose and forehead
Guys with dry skin have flaky rough skin
Now we have normal skin which is in between dry and oily
Next up we have sensitive skin which means you feel irritated after using some products or even eating some food.
Combination of both oily and dry skin. Oily at forehead and nose, dry at cheeks and side of the nose.
4 Basics Steps To Get a Clear Skin
Let’s start with a simple step of washing your face. Your face is filled with dust, dirt, and germs, Washing your face removes all of those.
You need to wash twice a day – once in the morning and once in the evening.
After wash fash you need to apply moisturizer, this process helps your skin to glow and stay hydrated throughout the day. Apply this after washing your face twice a day.
next, you need to exfoliate your skin once every week. Exfoliating your skin removes dead cells from your skin which result in healthy-looking skin.
Sunlight can cause permanent damage, scars, or even skin cancer. Applying sunscreen every time you leave your home will make sure your skin is protected.
There are two types SPF 15 and SPF 30, SPF 30 will protect your skin more than SPF 15.
6 Extra Hacks To Get a Clear Skin
Many celebrities use tinted moisturizers. Unlike normal moisturizers, this one contains a slight color that evens out your skin tone to hide scars, sun damage, or any other marks.
The face mask is a great way to improve blood circulation, from darker tired skin to refreshed clear skin – that’s what a face mask does.
You need to apply once every 2 weeks or once a month. Just put on a face mask, relax for 15 minutes and remove it.
Eye patches are the best way to combat dark circles, making your under eyes look refreshed and clear.
Use them daily in the morning and at night to get the best results.
Sunglasses protect your eyes from sun damage, + make you look cool, So whenever you go out apply sunscreen and put on sunglass.
Take Care Of Lips and Neck
Many people while they do their skincare forget their necks and lips.
Make sure you wash your neck, moisturize and exfoliate because the last thing you want is wrinkles all over your neck.
For lips apply lip balm to avoid dry flaky lips.
Use Rotating Brush
Rotating brush removes dirt and dust from your face easily compared to your hands. so if you have extra bucks after getting a skincare routine invest in this.
This works best during exfoliating.

Without This 1 Habit, You Can’t Get Clear Skin
Consistency – You can have all the products and follow all the steps mentioned but without a consistent skincare routine, you won’t achieve clear skin.
face wash, moisturizer, exfoliate and apply sunscreen – follow at least the basics.
