5 Skincare Saviours To Add To Your Routine
Our skin is our armor so when it’s not flawless it can be difficult to feel great. Having great skin doesn’t have to be difficult if you get the right products for your face. Keeping yourself glowing and fresh will leave you feeling confident and ready to take on the world. We’ve put together some skincare essentials to add to your routine so you don’t have to do the legwork. Check them out below!
We all know we should be moisturizing but getting the right one for your skin is key. Face creams are usually targeted, meaning that it’s best to get one that is made to work specifically for your skin issues, rather than an all-rounder. If you’re particularly dry, pick a rich occlusive moisturizer that locks in hydration. If you find your face getting oily by 10 am then opt for a lightweight gel that adds moisture without being too heavy. A probiotic moisturizer will add counteract modern stressors such as pollution. Take a skincare quiz online if you’re unsure of what your skin type is.
Starting with a fresh face will mean that your products are absorbed into your skin better. If you’re a fan of heavy makeup and use SPF daily (which is non-negotiable!) then follow the double cleanse method by using an oil-based cleanser to remove the outer layers of makeup and daily grime, then follow up with a nice soothing cleanser to really clean your skin of any impurities.
Harsh walnut scrubs are a thing of the past! AHA and BHA exfoliants are paving the way for gentler exfoliation that doesn’t shred and tear the skin’s outer layer. Use weekly initially then build up to two or three times a week. Ingredients such as salicylic acid are fantastic, as they gently exfoliant the epidermis and leave you with fresh, glowing skin. Be careful to follow your product’s instructions as acids can be harmful if used incorrectly.
A hugely hydrating hero, hyaluronic acid can hold 1000 times its weight in water, leaving you with plumped up dewy skin, straight off the cover of a magazine. Whilst all skincare products should be used for at least 12 weeks to see proper results, hyaluronic acid can actually show results right after your first application. Just remember to seal in all of that hydrating goodness with a moisturizer at the end of your routine.
Whilst masks must be used regularly to see their full effect, eye masks are a great way to deal with under-eye bags, puffiness, and fine lines when used several times a week. Use before a night out to calm swollen eyes, and then again the next morning when the hangover is starting to kick in! Plus it’s impossible not to feel totally pampered when using them.
