Whether you have dry, oily, combination, or normal skin, it’s important to take good care of skin if you want it to look and feel healthy. In addition to choosing the right products (with the right ingredients) for your skincare routine, it’s also important to implement an overall healthy skin routine, both day and night. Here are some easy tips to get started with today for glowing skin.
Choose gentle ingredients
A lot of skincare products contain harsh chemicals or ingredients that strip your skin of its natural moisture, leaving you with parched and unhealthy skin. Look for things like shea butter, chamomile, cocoa butter, antioxidants and flower extracts. These items nourish and protect your skin for the best health possible.
Unprotected sun exposure can lead to a sunburn, which is actually the least of your worries. Going without sunscreen on a regular basis also sets you up for wrinkles and fine lines, and skin cancer, none of which are going to give you the healthy-looking skin you want. Be sure to wear at least SPF 15 anytime you’re going to be outside and remember to reapply every couple of hours.
Wash your makeup brushes
Many people who visit their doctor or a dermatologist for breakouts and other skin issues find that they aren’t washing their makeup brushes enough. Be sure to suds them up with warm water and gentle soap at least once every two weeks.
Pay attention to your neck and chest
No matter which products you choose, be sure to spread them down onto your neck and chest. That area of skin can really show your age if you don’t give it enough attention and anything that you’ve chosen for your face is also a good choice for the skin further down. Be gentle as you do this, so you don’t put too much pressure on the delicate skin in these areas, which helps stave off wrinkling and sagging.
Use a serum
An increasing body of evidence proves that targeted serums are ideal for treating your specific skin issues. You should use a small amount of your chosen serums every day before your moisturiser and sunscreen.
Apply in the right order
There’s a science to putting your skincare products on, and getting them in the right order boosts their effects. Those with the most active ingredients should go on first, followed progressively by those that don’t. Another helpful tip is to put on the thinner items before the thicker ones, which ensures that they are each able to penetrate your skin and do their work.
Remember to exfoliate.
You don’t have to exfoliate every day, but it’s an important step at least once a week. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, built-up skincare products and other debris left on your skin, leaving fresh new skin shining through. A healthy skincare routine filled with the right products for your skin type is one of the best ways to always have skin that other people crave.
