the Skin Quiz
We all know what our skin needs - or do we?
answer ten questions and see how much you really know about
your skin and its needs? The answer may surprise you 😉
Which of these is the correct order for a skincare routine?
Generally the rule of thumb is to start with a clean canvas, toner to help purify and get skin moist before using the next lightest consistency product (such as a serum), before adding on the products with occlusive to better lock in precious moisture such as eye cream, moisturizers/day creams, and/or sunscreen.
True or false: super hot showers are great for your skin!
Any skin condition characterized by a janky skin barrier can be worsened by hot showers, as doing so can further rob the skin of sebum (the healthy fats and oils necessary for skin health) and exacerbate dehydration. The temperature of water during a shower is much likely to be warmer than that you'd use to wash only your face, so we recommend to keep face washing out of the shower!
What does toner do?
There's loads of different toners out there in the market today but the primary function is as a 2nd step after cleansing to help with the aforementioned tasks. However, Baesix Swipe Rite is not just a toner! It offers multiple benefits to help purify, hydrate, brighten and nourish your skin just to name a few.
True or false: it's fine to just use your body lotion on your face as moisturizer.
Keeping your skin healthy and hydrated isn't just important when it comes to your face! The skin on the rest of your body needs love too. However body lotions tend heavier in oils or occlusive than lotions formulated for the face. Thus it's probably better to use specific lotions for the face to prevent a greasy face (and yucky feeling) situation or worse, clogged pores that trigger angry zits.
What does exfoliating do?
Exfoliating can be a super important step when it comes to keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy, soft, and hydrated. The skin can look dull without exfoliation and would be more inclined to breakouts. Do it the right way tho and don't be over zealous!
Which of the following is NOT a common skincare ingredient?
Peanut butter is often made with sugar, salt as well as emulsifiers and stabilizers, as well as possible artificial colorings to keep it shelf stable and long life. Probably not the best skincare friend of choice
True or false: skin only needs to be cleansed once per day.
Knowing how often to do your skincare routine is just as important as actually doing it! Factors including makeup, environment (air pollution levels), if you exercised today etc. Some days we might cleanse once, and other days it could probably have a 2nd cleanse
True or false: drinking water can keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
up to 60% of our bodies is made up of water. Not only does water help hydrate your body physically it keeps organs functioning normally. The skin is an organ too, sooo..
Which of the following factors of your skin's health and aging can NOT be altered?
The body ages naturally. You CAN however help or hinder the process through life choices such as using sunscreen and making healthy dietary and lifestyle changes. You're welcome!
True or false: if you have oily skin, it's fine to skip the moisturizer.
Just because the outermost layer of your skin feels oily doesn't mean the layers below are well hydrated and taken care of. Moisturizer does more than just keep skin, well moist. Check out our All Day Err' Day SPF Moisturizer that gives you multiple skin benefits to help you slay the day.
