Skincare for Trans Women

It is important, especially while you are transitioning, that you especially take care of your skin and either start or improve your skincare routine. Some tips to follow:

  • Purchase good quality products
  • Either wear sunscreen everyday (no matter where you live) or at least buy products that have sunscreen in them
  • Find a skincare system that includes cleanser, toner, exfoliator, serum and moisturizer ~ you will want to follow this routine both day and night. Some systems have day cream, night cream
  • Find skincare products right for your skin type. Depending on your age, you may need an anti-aging formula; you may need products for dry or oily skin
  • Exfoliate at least twice a week
  • Don’t fall asleep with your make up on
  • Schedule regular facials (usually monthly)
  • You may also need to schedule regular laser or waxing appointments
  • Treat your lips to a gentle exfoliator and moisturizers regularly
  • Stay out of tanning beds. Instead, you can use a bronzer
