The Basics Behind A Great Skin Care Routine
Knowing when to use certain items and how will make all the difference to your skin.
With the change of season, it makes the perfect time to refresh and think about routines, and that includes how you look after your skin. A good complexion and a good skincare routine starts with the basics; repairing, cleansing, and protecting. Getting these right, and knowing when to use certain items and how will make all the difference to your skin.
Let’s have a look at some of the basics below:
Many of you will peel at night because this is when you have the most time, however, the majority of makeup artists will peel pre-makeup meaning the best time to do it may be in the morning. It makes applying makeup easier, and post-peel is also the best time to apply a face mask. Face masks give you a wonderful glow to your skin, so why wouldn’t you want to show this off during the day rather than the night when all you are doing is sleeping.
Utilise Vitamin C
It can be confusing to know what to use and when. You may already be using things like Grahams Natural Cream for Eczema, or another specialised cream. One of the key ingredients that you want to have on your skin is vitamin C. It’s a strong antioxidant that helps to boost healthy collagen, and to a certain degree, it works as natural UVB protection.
Build Up Your Defenses
Loading up on antioxidants is a way to build up your daily defence against things that damage your skin like stress, pollution, and the sun. Using a good advanced night and day cream that is full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and hydrating is the best way to tackle this.
Build Up Your Hydration Levels
It’s no secret that water builds up the hydration and oils in your skiing that nourish it. Don’t let things like oily skin make you think that you don’t need water. All types of skin can benefit from good hydration. Whether you choose to up your water intake, use a hydrating mask, or use an eye serum, make sure your skin is fully hydrated every day, especially on your face.
Although going bare-faced is beautiful, you may find that mosy bare-faced beauties have something on their skin, even if it’s a tinted moisturizer. Air pollution can be really damaging to your skin, so it’s best to give it an element of protection that you know you can wipe away at the end of each day. You will find many products on the market now that offer SPF protection and anti-pollution that make your skin look healthy and natural.
Get Enough Sleep
Science shows us that cell repair happens overnight. Meaning getting enough sleep is a vital part of any skincare routine. Make sure you make the effort to get some rest, and if you struggle with sleep, try to find some ways to relax before bedtime.
