Skin Care Basics

I will cover the basic skin care items that are very useful to have. A lot of people go over board on skin care products by buying everything they see. A lot of the time these products are not as useful as they make out and can often promise such wonders but don't actually do much at all. However there are many wonderful products out there. Any way back to basics as I have yet again made another lovely list for you. Covering the items of skin care for face and body, as well as a section on nail care.

Face skin care basics:
  • Face wash (yes it can just be soap and water)
  • Facial scrub (an exfoliator gentle enough for use on the face)
  • Moisturiser (a day cream with sun cream in is also useful)
  • Eye cream (this is up to you on whether you do or don't use it, there are eye creams that help with puffy,tired or dark eyes so it can be helpful to have)
  • Blemish stick (or other spot treatment. Tea tree and witch hazel are good to look out for in these products)
  • Face cloth 
  • Cotton wool pads
  • Cotton buds
Body skin care basics:
  • Body wash
  • Exfoliating wash or scrub
  • Moisturiser
  • Hand cream (hand and nail creams are good as they also help to keep nails healthy too)
  • Deodorant
  • Body sponge and exfoliating sponge (you can get a sponge with a smooth side and an exfoliating side) 
  • Pumice stone 
Nail care basics:
  • Base coat
  • Top coat
  • Nail polish remover (preferably acetone free)
  • Nail cutters
  • Nail file
  • Cuticle stick (to gently push the cuticles back. Try not to cut them as this is bad to do)
  • Cuticle oil (this keeps the nails and cuticles moisturised and healthy)
There are the basic skin and nail care items to have in your beauty stash. Remember when buying products, that face and body products are different, as products for the face are a lot more gentle, as the skin on your face is gentler than the skin on your body. Also that the skin around your eyes is thinner and should be treated with care.
Let me know about your basic items or if there is a product that you love or can't live without.
