Investing in a proper skincare regimen is important to built a healthy skin barrier. With so many high performing products out there in the market, it can be overwhelming to know which are the ones we really need.
A skincare routine should always be tailored according to a person’s skin type be it dry, oily, acne prone or combination. So it is important to understand our skin concerns and how to deal with them using the proper skin products. Being committed and consistent to the routine can give us the desired outcome. Just like going on from a ruthless diet to a healthy eating lifestyle.
Having to establish a good routine may sound like high maintenance but it is easy to implement which thus results in a person’s face to look and feel great. So let’s have a look at some basic and simple tips for our everyday skincare;
- Double cleanse at PM (night):
Always cleanse your face twice at evening so that you can remove all those dirt and pollution collected on top of the several layers of products on your skin. Many experts recommend double cleansing which involves using an oil based cleanser then washing it off with your regular cleanser. Or you can just use your dedicated makeup remover then wash it off with a gentle cleanser.
- Check your water temperature:
It is important to check your water temperature before washing your face. Too hot or too cold water may be irritating if you specifically have sensitive skin. Luke warm water is considered as the ideal temp as it can help remove the impurities from skin.
- Layer products from thinnest to the thickest:
One of the skincare prophecy is to layer your products in a proper manner from thinnest (water) to the thickest (oily) consistency. As oil and water repel each other, the product with thick consistency can repel the skin from hydration leading to moisture being trapped within the skin. So always remember your steps!
- Wear you SPFs!:
The most important part of AM skincare routine is to apply generous amount of sunscreen for protecting your skin from the UV rays. Be it a cloudy or rainy day, it is estimated that 80% of UV rays still pass through the cloud so it is vital to wear your sunscreen everyday!
- Keep your makeup brushes and tools clean:
It is important to keep your makeup brushes and tools clean on how frequently you use them. To make sure that you avoid the bacteria and impurities to come in contact with your face keep washing the makeup tools consistently.
- Be consistent:
Consistency is the key. Skincare doesn’t work overnight, it should be habitual. No matter what the routine should be done continuously every morning and evening. You can achieve the best when you are consistent with it everyday!
Lastly, just having a good skincare routine does not only contribute to great skin but also incorporating a better daily lifestyle. Be it changing your pillow case everyday, taking care of your gut health and continuous hydration of your body within. It should be followed everyday in order to get a healthy and radiant looking skin.
