Best Skincare Home Care Routine: By Skin Type

Often times, what bothers women about their skin are issues that easily cost less than $100 to fix. Most skin conditions stem from the need of a deep cleansing or a good exfoliation of the first the second layer of the dermis (skin). That then allows a professional to thin out the stratum corneum. Afterwards, all that is needed is a great home care routine to balance out the pH levels of her skin.


You’ll want to get a cleanser that has a pH level of between 2.5 and 4.3. Here are my recommendations by skin type:

Normal skin – you'll want to find a mild cleanser.

Oily skin– look for a cleanser that contains Salicylic acid.

Dry skin– look for a cleanser that contains a moisturizer or cream base as well as Lactic acid.

Combination skin – seek out a mild cleanser with Glycolic acid.

Sensitive skin – you'll want to find a cream-based cleanser so that it moisturizers your skin but contains no Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's).

Myelinated skin – you’ll need a cleanser that contains Hybrid Glycolic acid.


Normal – look for a creamy moisturizer that contains Hyaluronic acid and Lactic acid.

Oily – seek out a moisturizer that’s water-based and/or more of a gel.

Dry – find a cream based moisturizer (shea butter or jojoba oil) with either/and Urea, Lactic acid, Hyaluronic acid.

Sensitive + Combination - use a lightweight moisturizer that does not contain acids.

Now, if you have acne prone or problematic skin, I would recommend using a toner such as Apple Cider Vinegar. If you do not have problematic skin, I recommend you using a Freshener such as Witch Hazel.

You will also want to get a facial at least once a month by your esthetician and that will allow her/him to type your skin and give you the best product recommendations for your skin.

Lastly, if you have more problematic skin your esthetician can usually correct the problems by using mild to deep acids.
