For dry skin, use a cleanser that doesn't have alcohol or fragrances. These things can dry your skin out even more. Scrub your face gently and leave it on your skin for a minute or two. Then, use warm water. Never use hot water because it can dry your skin out more. Exfoliate your skin once a week so your skin will become evener.

Oily skin

It's not necessary to purchase high quality and expensive skin products for those who have normal and combination skin. However, don't go too easy on your skin and just wash your face with whatever bar of soap you can find. Find something that works best for you like a gentle cleanser or soap. Do not scrub your face, just apply it on. Rinse with warm water and dry it with a towel.

Sensitive Skin

Be cautious if you have sensitive skin. Clean your face with a gentle cleanser. Use warm or cold water. Let your face air-dry. Don't rub or scrub your skin, it will irritate it. Stay away from exfoliating also. Don't buy products that don't have acid, fragrance, soap, or alcohol. Buy products that have chamomile, aloe, oats, or green tea. The fewer ingredients the product can prevent your skin from having a reaction.

Moisturizer should always be applied after toner. No matter how young you are, you should start using moisturizer because it helps protect skin especially if it has a little SPF in it.

Speaking of SPF, apply sunscreen after moisturizer. Although you might have found SPF in your moisturizer it never hurts to use separate protection also. Wear it every day, no matter what kind of weather might appear.

Wash your face twice daily. it is recommended to wash it when you wake up and when you are about to go to bed. Remove all that make off at the end of the day. It is very bad for the skin to keep it on overnight.

Speaking of makeup, choosing makeup is crucial for the skin. Pick out products that have noncomedogenic or nonacnegenic. Don't share makeup or makeup tools. Wash your brushes often and use fresh applicators when you try samples at stores. Always buy new makeup and not use.
