Super Charge Your Skin Care Regime
We all know how a beautiful skin can boost our confidence levels! Maintaining a healthy, happy skin, however, is no piece of cake. Here’s why:
The outer layer of your skin is not only a constant victim of the harsh sun rays but is also in continuous contact with dry air and environmental pollutants. The dry air tends to steal the moisture away from the skin, while the UV rays cause the skin to become uneven followed by an increase in fine lines and wrinkles. The dirt and pollution on the other hand deposit dust particles on the skin, clogging the pores and causing the skin to become dull. All this ultimately leads to premature aging. These are just some of the common problems that your skin faces. Regular skin care keeps that exposed layer of the skin protected, clean and hydrated.
The real question however is the role that we can play to up our skin care game.
How to care for your skin:
Remember! Regular skin care can preserve your youth! A little extra care such as taking proper sleep and drinking lots of water, followed by some good quality skincare products are the best ways to combat existing skin problems and prevent further problems.
- First and Foremost, Cleansing!
First of all, never go to sleep with makeup on. The first step before any skincare routine is to thoroughly clean the skin. For some, cleaning the skin can be as simple as washing the face, but skin care experts advice not to stop here. Instead, they suggest following a proper cleansing routine.
Start with a cleansing milk to remove the day’s makeup, accumulated oil and dust particles. Follow this with a wash using a good quality face wash or gel that helps remove any remaining bacteria or dirt.
We urge you to scrub your face at-least twice a week depending on your skin type in order to remove dead skin cells and release clogged pores.
Remember! All your expensive skincare products will absorb better on a clear face, benefiting the skin exponentially.
We repeatedly stress on quality of products that you use on your skin because if the quality is not good enough, it can do more harm than good! Side effects can include over drying of the skin and/or ugly red rashes.
- Balance is key; Use a Toner!
Once cleaned, the skin might experience some tightness and PH level imbalance that can, to some extent be arrested with a facial mist or toner. This is also one of the simplest and quickest ways to keep your skin hydrated. Enriched with moisture and vitamins, a good quality toner refreshes the skin, nourishes it deeply and keeps it protected throughout the day. It is also recommended to used before
- Applying Serum is a must! :
When it comes to skincare products, the importance of serum just cannot be stressed enough! Just a tiny quantity can work wonders on your skin! Most serums are concentrated with high quality ingredients such as vitamin C and anti aging properties and aim to target numerous skin conditions. Some common problems addressed by Serums include reversing the aging process and reducing acne, giving the skin a healthy glow.
- Moisturize ,Moisturize, Moisturize!
This is yet another step that many people tend to ignore! According to skin care experts, regardless of your skin type, moisturizing is a crucial part of your skin care regime. A good quality moisturizer helps hydrate your skin, keeping it fresh throughout the day.
There are many brands in the market that stock a wide range of moisturizers including ones specially formulated for different skin conditions. Most moisturizers are suitable for all skin types, while there are some, specially formulated for acne skin types.
- Last but Definitely not the least: Sun block!
Always remember, prevention is better than cure! As we have mentioned earlier, exposure to the sun can cause serious damage to the skin. This is true even if you stay indoors, because the sunrays can easily penetrate through the windows! The solution to this is using a good quality sun block with SPF 50, before applying makeup.
