What is the best way to start the day for beautiful skin?

What care should we take for our skin on a daily basis?

For the correct daily skin care, it is also necessary to know what your skin type is.  Determining your skin type will help you choose cosmetics and save you valuable time. The best-selling or newest product won’t always be right for you.

The easiest way to have healthy skin is the right habits. To do this, follow a few simple steps every day, starting with…


The first and most important rule is to always clean your skin before going to bed. No matter how tired you are in the evening, cleansing will remove what has accumulated on your face throughout the day, and prevent the appearance of blackheads and enlarged pores. 

If you go to bed with makeup on, you risk damaging your skin more. Removing makeup takes no more than 15 minutes a night and allows your skin to breathe, which stimulates cell regeneration.

Avoid using soap to clean your face. The cleansing qualities of soaps are well known, but most of them will dry out your skin.

For the evening cleansing of the face, we suggest using warm water. It will remove all the toxins and impurities that have accumulated on your face during the day. Gently massage your skin as you rinse it off. Here are a few more benefits of cleansing your skin at night:

  • delays the appearance of wrinkles
  • makes your skin more radiant
  • helps you look more alive
  • prevents acne and blackheads
  • helps make skin smoother and more attractive.

2. Serums

Serums are an important part of daily care and it is important that they are selected for the right skin type. At Derma-Act, we can make an individual serum with ingredients selected just for you, after determining your skin type. Serums that contain vitamin C are very suitable for day care, as they have a strong antioxidant effect, and for night serums, retinol is a very suitable ingredient, as it fights wrinkles, dry skin, pigment spots and acne. In the composition of serums, there are active ingredients in a more concentrated form and this makes it more effective after it is absorbed by the skin. If you notice the first wrinkles, gray complexion, dryness or irritation, you should look for a serum suitable for your skin problems.

To keep the skin younger for a long time, serums with antioxidants will help you – they minimize the negative impact of the environment. For the first wrinkles, look for a serum based on glycolic and hyaluronic acid or one with vitamin A, and it is best to use it at least three times a week to regenerate and nourish the skin, accelerate cell renewal and stimulate collagen production in the skin. If you have noticed lightening of the skin, a serum with vitamin B3 will be most useful to you, and if you need lifting, with lipopeptides.

3. Hydration 

Every skin type needs daily hydration. Even oily skin needs to be hydrated with light and mattifying creams that won’t clog your pores. Dry skin cracks more easily and is more prone to wrinkles. Hydrate it at least 2 times a day. For sensitive skin, avoid creams that contain artificial fragrances, alcohol, silicones and other irritants.

Without hydration, the cells in the skin of our face cannot carry out their restorative processes, elasticity diminishes and noticeable fine wrinkles appear.

Our skin loses fluids mainly due to external factors, and if we do not take care of good hydration, its condition and appearance will deteriorate.

How to recognize that our skin is dehydrated?

A main indicator of dehydrated skin is a feeling of tightness. Other symptoms are increased sensitivity, irritability, itching and scaling. Surface wrinkles in the area around the eyes are also a sign of dehydration.

4. SPF 

Protecting the skin from the sun’s rays is mandatory all year round. SPF – Sunburn Protection Factor indicates the degree of UVB protection. A higher factor allows for longer exposure to the sun without burning your skin. Although a higher factor protects you for longer hours, external factors such as wash-off and absorption must be considered. It is best to apply a protective cream every 2-3 hours. 

Much of the aging of the face is caused by sun exposure. Aging related to sun exposure is called photodamage: it manifests itself most often with deep wrinkles and pigment spots. This type of accelerated aging applies to all areas that are more frequently exposed to the sun, such as the face. UVB and UVA rays have a serious effect on skin cells, destroying collagen and elastin.

5th step – Exfoliating

Accumulated dead cells not only make us look older, but also cause clogged pores, blackheads and pimples. So removing dead cells is essential if we want to have glowing and clear skin. Skin that is not exfoliated is much more difficult to maintain, because the rest of the products stay on the surface, they cannot penetrate deep and achieve a real effect.

Not all dead cells leave the body immediately. Our most superficial layer of skin is made up of already dead cells, which should be removed once a month. When they are removed, the skin becomes smoother, tender and radiant. At Derma-Act, you can have your skin exfoliated with the procedure microdermabrasion or come in for a consultation so we can recommend the right peeling for your skin.

If you are not sure what your skin type is, at Derma-Act we can easily determine it after a spectrophotometric analysis with Visia and give you more guidance on how to care for it.
