Normal  skin is gift , it is the least problematic type. It feels vibrant, elastic, and soft.

Either you are a house wife or working women if proper time and attention is not given then even God gifted neat clean smooth normal skin will break down and might start showing up oily patches or broken skin. So provide regular skin care for making your skin younger, healthy and glowing.

In my earlier article I have shown basic skin care routine which for every skin type which include four steps
  • Cleansing
  • Removing dead cells/skin
  • Toning
  • Moisturizing

Here I will show you some extra steps best for your own skin type i.e. normal skin...

Step #1. Cleansing for normal skin:
Cleansing  is a must step for every skin because no matter what you do you can't keep your skin away from dust, harmful sun rays, wind and even stress. When a person is under stress his/her oil producing glands become more active , produce more oil and make your skin look dull and dark. That why when you wash you face it refresh your skin as well as release stress to some extent.
For improving normal skin follow steps below:
  • Cleansing for normal skin should be performed two to three times per day.
  • Best timing for cleansing are morning and evening. Before going to bed if u feel like your skin need cleansing you can add that in you routine.
  • Use pleasant warm water to splash face.
  • Clean your face with a ph balanced natural cleanser, avoid soap.
  • Apply using finger tips in circular motion. 
  • Massage for one minutes
  • Wash out properly
  • Dry out using soft towel
  • Take a cotton bud or soft tissue dip in rose water and apply to your face thoroughly, it will refresh your face. Regular use will give a rosy complexion and a glow to your skin.
  • Don't use anything like towel or tissue for drying. Leave it to dry itself.
  • This will complete your cleansing process.

Step #2. Removing dead skin:
Removing dead skin also known as exfoliation process is important for keeping skin healthy and its the best way of giving younger look to normal skin. Its seems artificial or harmful but its totally natural process as many people don't know our skin shred thousands of cells per minute. Manually removing dead cell only enhance that process and end up giving you a glowing look.
  • Over doing exfoliation process can damage the skin so only repeat this process once or at max twice a week.
  • There are many ways to exfoliate natural skin such as exfoliating soup, scrub or tools like gloves, face brush, cleansing pouch, facial cloths etc.
  • To remove dead skin use pleasant warm water to splash face and then apply cleanser.
  • Use soft scrubs such as Clean n Clear, Farmasi or Neutrogena  or exfoliating tool such as gloves to rub gently in circular motion.
  •  You can also a natural oatmeal scrub or make natual one at home.
  • Rinse off your face thoroughly and move to the next step.

Step #3. Toning for normal skin:
Rose water that I have mentioned in cleansing also work as best toner if u feel that's enough for refreshing your skin you can skip this part. Where as for giving an extra glow and protection to your face you can always get a light toner. It never gives any side effect for any skin type.
  • Apply toner right after cleansing(or exfoliation process).
  • But it can be also be applied any other time of the day as well.
  • It best to use toner  two to three times a day.
  • Apply using cotton bud or soft facial tissue for even spread.
  • Rose water, Aloevera juice and lavender water are the best toner for normal skin.
  • Again leave to dry off naturally.

Step #4. Moisturizing for normal skin:
Moisturizing is the very important step. If skin is fully moisturized pores will not collect dust hence black heads and open pores will not be created.
  • Apply two times a day followed by toner.
  • Waite for toner to dry before applying.
  • Don't use very creamy, greasy or thick creams. light lotions like baby lotion, ponds, dove etc are best for normal skin.
  • Buttermilk, avocado, honey, olive oil are best natural moisturizer.
  • Natural oils that are good for normal skins include olive, jojoba and primrose oil.
  • Some homemade moisturizing lotions are made with essential oils suitable for normal skin such as lavender, rose and Neroli.
Apply the recommended moisturizer to clean, dry skin and allow the skin to absorb the moisturizer. Do not over-moisturizer but apply enough for your skin to absorb and remove extra with soft tissue.

Step #5. Steaming for normal skin: 

The fourth step in the natural skin care routine for normal skin is steaming. Streaming is best for closing open pores and removing black and white heads.
  • Normal skin needs steaming once or twice per week. 
  • Natural ingredients that you can be added in steam which gives a perfect effect to normal skin includes comfrey, calendula, lavender etc. 
  • Natural oils which can also be added in the steam are lavender, rose or Neroli.
  • Boil some water and add the herbs and/or essential oil. Only add about a tablespoon of each herb you wish to use. If using essential oil, add about five drops of each essential oil you wish to use.
  • Put the pan lid on and leave water to boil for about 10 minutes.
  • Finally put the pan in front of you. Place your face right on top. Cover head and pan with towel and remove the lid just the little. Don't remove fully it will be strong and will harm your skin. Enjoy the steam.
Normal Skin care before Sleeping: 

Adopt following steps before sleeping if you have normal skin.
  • Wash your face two to three times for softening your skin.
  • Use cleansing product only if your skin feels dusty or oily.
