Skin Care

Taking care of your skin will leave you looking confident, healthy and glowing all day every day. Re-energising tired looking skin and reducing the number of spots and blemishes are generally everyone’s goal. There are a few simple things that you can add to your daily routine to keep your complexion fresh, clean and healthy. Our top tips will steer you in the right direction.

  1. Drink Water

Keeping your skin hydrated never goes out of style. Drinking water has many benefits for your health and glowing, radiant skin is one of them. It is recommended to drink 3 litres of water a day at a minimum. Once you start increasing the amount you’re drinking a day you will start to notice the signs. Your skin will be much clearer and spot free.

2. Always Take Your Make-Up off at Night

We all love finding the latest make-up tips and trends, however, never be tempted to go to sleep in your make-up no matter how tired you feel. It can feel like a chore having to remove your make-up every evening yet your skin needs time to breathe. Once you’re in a routine and you start seeing the positive effects on your skin, it will become a more enjoyable process.

3. Find the Right Products for Your Skin

It is important to find cleansers, moisturizers, and serums that work for your skin type, especially those with sensitive skin. Do your research into different brands and even ask a professional as to what they advise. Using the wrong products could make your skin react coming out in a rash or blemish. If you have particularly sensitive skin, make sure you find a product that uses ingredients that will not make your face flare up.

4. Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise

Cleansing

It may feel after removing your make-up with oil (or whatever works for you) your face is clean. However, you need to also cleanse (twice) at night, tone and moisturize to make sure every product is removed and your skin is soft and fresh. Even in the morning, you need to repeat the process as overnight your skin will pick up dirt and bacteria from your pillow. This regime will certainly keep your complexion in great condition.

5. Avoid Touching Your Skin Repeatedly

It may feel after removing your make-up with oil (or whatever works for you) your face is clean. However, you need to also cleanse (twice) at night, tone and moisturize to make sure every product is removed and your skin is soft and fresh. Even in the morning, you need to repeat the process as overnight your skin will pick up dirt and bacteria from your pillow. This regime will certainly keep your complexion in great condition.

6. Be Gentle

When removing makeup or applying any products do not pull your skin. Be kind and gentle by using soft strokes or simply pat the face. Dragging your skin unnecessarily may cause wrinkles or marks as it is stretched too far. Always treat your skin with great care when applying or removing cosmetic products and makeup.

7. Avoid Heat

Do not put your face directly under the shower head. The pressure and heat are too powerful for your complexion causing damage to your sensitive skin. Instead, wash with cool/warm water using the sink to clean your face in a more gentle way. Avoid turning the heat up in the shower at any time to prevent unnecessary damage over time.

8. Keep Make-Up Brushes Clean

After use always clean the make-up off your brushes. This may sound time-consuming but the bacteria and dirt that will build upon each brush after countless uses will have a negative impact on your complexion. Also, use different brushes when covering spots to avoid spreading to the rest of your face.

9. Keep Unhealthy Snacks to a Minimum

Although cakes, chocolate, and crisps may taste delicious, they are not great for the skin. The same goes for fizzy drinks and alcohol. Moderate how much unhealthy snacks you eat replacing your usual routine with healthier options such as fruit, raisins, nuts etc. Not only with you see the benefit you will feel it too.

10. Reduce Sun Exposure

We all like a summer tan to last us through the winter, however, don’t overdo it especially when it comes to your face. Regularly sitting in the sun for long periods of time will damage your skin. Always use a high SPF sun cream when you go on holiday and limit your exposure. At times, sit out of the sun to allow your body to cool off and always shade your face to avoid wrinkles. Sunbeds are a definite no and should not be used, as there are many known dangers.

To Finish

Each point is easy to add into your daily routine. With a little discipline and determination, you will start to notice a difference, especially from drinking more water, taking your make-up off at night, cutting out unhealthy snacks and reducing sun exposure. Once you have added each tip into your beauty regime, your skin will look refreshed and flawless, leaving you wondering why you didn’t start cleansing, toning and moisturizing much sooner.
