When it comes to skin care, there are two types of people: those who overdo it and those who under-do it. Generally, females occupy the former category and males the latter, but not always. There are plenty of us plain-and-simple girls who cannot be bothered a complicated regimen.
Whether your vanity counter could pass for a mini Sephora pop-up shop for all the products and potions it boasts, or you only use a bar of soap, we’re all looking for the right balance of important skin care products for our daily routine.
Beauty expert David Pirrotta of David Pirrotta Brands has the answer. He’s spent countless hours in the company of a veritable alphabet of brands through his 20-plus years of experience in the industry — he even cut his teeth on the cosmetics floors at New York City’s Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys New York. So, you could say, he’s seen it all.
Yet, when it comes down to putting your best face forward, he sayss it’s about four simple goals and four types of products to accomplish them. “The goal of any skin care regime is to cleanse, moisturize, protect, and repair,” Pirrotta said. “The most important, and low maintenance, types of products women should use daily are a cleanser, moisturizer, SPF, and a potent eye serum.”
Of course, he points out consistency is key to yielding the best results from this skin care regime. But, that should really be as easy as one, two, three, and four.
