When it comes to your complexion there are many key factors.


First, you have to know what skin type you have.​ Oily, Dry, Combination, or Normal. ​By determining that you can then decide what type of products are going to work best for you. Second, wash your face in the morning and at night. Try using a cream based wash if you have dry skin and a liquid wash if you have an oily skin type. After you wash your face, you may decide to use a toner. ​Toners ​get rid of residue that face washes tend to leave behind. Next you want to use a moisturizer, there are moisturizers specifically designed to work with your skin type. Third, exfoliate and use a face mask formulated for your skin type at least once a week. Try not to pick and pop your acne.​​ Skin care can be frustrating and results aren't always instant, but staying consistent will help. Don't forget how important ​drinking water, eating right, and exercising are.
