Your Most Burning Skincare Questions Answered

 

Today we will be going through the most frequently asked questions about skincare to help you treat your skin better. These questions have crossed all of our minds at some point and today’s the day you finally get your answers.

 

1. Do I need to use a makeup remover for sunscreen?

So, there’s no straightforward answer to this because all sunscreens and facial cleansers have different properties. Most sunscreens are oil-based and thus need a proper oil-based cleanser or makeup remover to fully take them off.

However, ultimately the strength of your cleanser and the type of your sunscreen determines whether a specific makeup remover is necessary for you. Ultimately, it is better to err on the side of caution and make sure all your sunscreen is off, so your skin care has a fresh canvas to work with.

 

2. Can a pregnant woman use XYZ skincare product?

Pregnancy skincare can be a debated topic but for the most part ingredients in skincare and cosmetics are not concentrate enough to actually harm a pregnant woman or her child. 

However, there are some ingredients such as retinols, chemical sunscreens, benzoyl peroxide, and hydroquinone that should be avoided because they can be incredibly strong and prone to penetrate into the blood stream.

 

3. Can I mix XYZ and ABC in my skin care routine?

Certain skincare products shouldn’t be mixed because they can either cancel out their efficiency or cause product pilling (especially under your makeup).

When you hear about two ingredients or products that shouldn’t be mixed together, best practice is to either use them separately in your day and night skin care regimes or to wait at least ten minutes between applications.

 

4. Which comes first, the sunscreen or the primer?

This is an area that confuses a lot of people so let me clarify it for you. Sunscreen is the last step in skin care and primer is the first step in makeup. According to this convention, sunscreen goes on first and then primer goes on top of the sunscreen.

It is a good idea to let your sunscreen sit on your face for at least 15 minutes before you apply primer and the rest of your makeup on top.

 

5. When to start anti-aging skincare?

Experts tend to differ in the exact age brackets for this, but most agree that the sooner the better. Generally speaking, your mid-twenties are a good time to start paying attention to anti-aging skin care. Remember: prevention is better than cure! The best way to counter signs of aging is with a proactive approach to skin care.
