When it comes to skin care products, the classics are classics for a reason. Yes, there are lots of fancy add-ons you can incorporate into your beauty routine (like sheet masks and essences), but sometimes the basics are all you need to care for your skin. Keep your bathroom stocked with the following six skin care products so that you can always be sure that you can keep your complexion in tip-top condition. Let’s get to it!
Micellar water has been a French-favorite cleanser for years—and once you learn how it works, you won’t be surprised why. Micellar water is powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that act as a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from the skin. It’s a no-rinse, gentle cleansing option—just is saturate a cotton pad with it and wipe the pad across your face.
Cleansing your skin should always be the first step in your skin care routine—morning at night. Feeling too tired to take your makeup off before bed? Well, when you sleep in your makeup, it can mix with the dirt and oil that has built up on the surface of your skin, which can lead to clogged pores—and clogged pores can lead to breakouts. Take care of cleansing and makeup removal in one step with micellar water.
If you have oily skin…try the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin, which purifies and mattifies.
If you have dry skin…try the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin, which hydrates and soothe.
If you want to remove waterproof makeup…try the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types, which intensely purifies.
Micellar water isn’t the only cleansing option out there. Traditional water-based rinse-off cleansers are great, too! When it comes to pick the best cleanser for you, keep your individual skin type and needs in mind. What works for oily skin may not necessarily work for dry skin, and so on and so forth. Try one of the recommendations below!
The L’Oréal Paris Go 360° Clean Deep Exfoliating Scrub helps exfoliate dull, dead skin cells on skin’s surface and is formulated with natural apricot seeds. It also helps remove all traces of oil, dirt, and makeup and comes with a soft cleansing disk made from a gentle, flexible material.
The L’Oréal Paris Go 360° Clean Deep Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin is a dermatologist-tested, fragrance-free, and soap-free cleanser specifically designed for those with sensitive skin. It helps deeply cleanse and remove all traces of makeup, dirt, and oil without over-drying.
The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser can help gently yet effectively remove all traces of makeup. Score!
The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser can help remove all traces of makeup and impurities. It gently exfoliates dead skin cells and helps enhance facial smoothness and radiance.
The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Daily Scrub Cleanser is formulated with gentle micro-pearls and glycolic acid to help exfoliate the surface of your skin and make it appear brighter.
The L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ All Skin Types Foaming Gel Cleanser helps to lift dirt and impurities off the skin without drying your complexion out.
After cleansing, it’s important to apply a moisturizer, regardless of your skin type. Yes, you really do need to use moisturizer even if you have oily skin! We’re fans of water-based moisturizers. Find your match below! They’re each formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe water to help provide long-lasting hydration.
If you have oily skin…external factors like pollution, UV rays, and excessive cleansing can damage skin’s moisture barrier, causing loss of moisture and an increase in oil production. As a result, your complexion can end up looking overly shiny. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin has a matte finish, so you don’t have to worry about ending up looking super-greasy.
If you have dry skin…your skin faces external factors like pollution and UV rays that can damage the skin’s moisture barrier, increasing loss of moisture and causing it to become drier. As a result, your skin’s surface can lose its natural glow, becoming dull. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin envelops skin with moisture, helping it to look more radiant.
If you have extra dry skin…your skin has a very fragile skin moisture barrier that can easily be damaged by external factors like pollution and UV rays. Skin consequently loses its ability to retain moisture, becoming easily dehydrated, feeling tight and uncomfortable. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin envelops skin with moisture, providing comfort and helping to soothe your complexion.
Editor’s tip: Apply your moisturizer to damp skin after cleansing to help lock in hydration. You can also try storing your moisturizer in the fridge for a cool skin treat!
Like we told you earlier, taking off your makeup before bed is a major skin care must. One of the easiest makeup removing options out there is the towelette—just one wipe across your face and you can hit the sack without having to worry about what your skin will look like in the morning.
The L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ Makeup Removing Towelettes gently yet effectively remove all traces of makeup—even waterproof mascara or long-wear products! All you have to do is wipe your face and eye area with one of the ultra-soft towelettes—like micellar water, there’s no rinsing requires. Bonus: Bring a pack with you when you’re hitting the gym or traveling on vacation to make cleansing on the go a cinch.
Does it seem like your complexion could use a little extra something-something every once in a while? Go ahead and use a clay mask. Clay masks have been around forever—and there are plenty of good reasons why they’re so popular. Not sure where to start? Try one of the clay masks below! They’re each formulated with kaolin, Montmorillonite, and Moroccan clays.
Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking overly oily. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Purify & Mattify Treatment Mask is formulated with three types of clay and enhanced with eucalyptus leaf extract to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and reduce the look of excess shine. Apply an even layer to clean dry, skin, leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse.
Dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin day after day, leaving your complexion feeling rough. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refining Treatment Mask is formulated with three types of clay and enhanced with red algae extract to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with water in gentle, circular motions to exfoliate.
Over time, harsh environmental factors like pollution and debris can damage skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Detox & Brighten Mask is formulated with three types of clay and enhanced with charcoal to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution and reduce the look of dull skin. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse.
Use your mask of choice three times a week for best results. At-home spa day, anyone?
You should be applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen as the last step in your skin care routine every day of the year, rain or shine. Spending prolonged periods of time in the sun without wearing protection can lead to damage, which can show up down the road as visible signs of aging like dark spots and wrinkles. A broad-spectrum sunscreen can help protect against UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays are the ones that cause damage, while UVB rays are the ones that burn—and you can get burned even on cloudy days! The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using a broad-spectrum sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher—and reapplying it every two hours (more frequently if you’re swimming or sweating, though).
Always in a rush? There’s no reason for you to skip out on this important skin care step! Just opt for a day moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Lotion SPF 30. It’s formulated with glycolic acid, vitamin C, Pro-Retinol, and broad-spectrum sunscreen to help brighten the look of your complexion and protect against UV rays. And remember: Toss the bottle into your purse in the morning so that you can reapply every two hours throughout the day.
