What To Know About Buzzy Trend Skin Streaming
Basics Are Better
Skin streaming is about going back to the basics and streamlining your skincare routine with only the essential items, so it’s time to discard serums, gels, creams, and lotions.
Consider your actual skincare needs, and only keep products you need to cleanse your face, moisturize your skin, and control acne, rosacea, or other skin conditions you may have.
Keep Medical Items
You should never remove or stop using items that have been prescribed by a medical professional, as they take precedence over any cosmetic or over-the-counter products.
If you do have medical products in your skincare routine, you should mold your skin streaming around the needs of the prescription products.
Take Fewer Steps
Finding ways to minimize and combine the steps in your skincare routine is the number-one rule of skin streaming, so think about what your skin actually requires.
For example, you can use an exfoliating cleanser to merge two steps into one. You could also look for moisturizers with SPF, salicylic acid, and other acne-fighting ingredients.
Don’t Toss Everything
Instead of tossing everything, determine which products are actually useful to your skin. Your skincare routine is yours, so you can keep as many or as few products as you want to.
In the vein of merging steps by using products containing several essential ingredients, try to find serums that have multiple components that will serve your skincare needs.
Sunscreen Is Essential
The one item you shouldn’t remove when creating your skin streaming regimen is sunscreen. You should be applying sunscreen every day because the benefits are enormous.
Regular application of sunscreen can save your skin, from preventing sunburns and redness to protecting against skin cancers. It can also reduce the effects of aging on the skin.
