Skincare is so important! If your skin looks good, anything will look great on it. Skin is the largest organ of the body and can be affected by stress among other things, just as any other organ in the body. It is important to drink plenty of water to hydrate skin from the inside out. Don’t forget to take care of your body and mind and your skin will thank you.
- Wash your face every night!
Washing your face every night, not only gets rid of the grime from the day, but it also let’s your skin breathe and it will allow your nighttime skincare to really sink in. I love Face Halo to remove all my makeup, then I follow with a great cleanser like the Green Tea Milk Wash by Farmhouse Fresh.
A sunscreen that protects you from both UVA and UVB rays is great to help battle the damage of the sun. But don’t get lured into a false sense of security. While putting sunscreen on in the morning goes a long way to help protect your skin, it won’t protect you all day. Be sure to reapply! It is suggested every two hours. I start my day with Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Cream SPF 50+ Sunscreen. There are also powders with sunscreen that are great for touchup throughout the day like Sunforgettable Mineral SPF 50 Sunscreen Brush by Colorescience.
- Moisturizer/eye cream
It is so important to moisturize your skin. Unless you have dry skin most people don’t think about using moisturizer and especially eye cream until they are in their thirties or start to notice fine lines. The truth is you should start long, long before that. You want to keep your skin hydrated to help prevent fine lines and wrinkles. It is so much easier, cheaper and less painful to prevent lines and wrinkles then to fix them later in life. The skin around your eyes is very delicate, and eye creams are developed specifically for that area.
- Treatment products
To up your skincare game add serum or other treatment products. There are serums and other products to address pretty much anything you can think of for your skin. From brightening to smoothing, to more hydration to acne clearing. I have been loving the Renew & Smooth Night Serum by Bliss. It has changed my skin drastically. I feel like my skin is better now in my mid-thirties then it was in my twenties.
There are a lot of ways to give your skincare routine a boost. I love a good mask to kick it up a notch. I didn’t always think a mask could really make that much of a difference in my skincare. Then I tried the Aloisia Marie 7 Day Skin Care System. It is a total game changer. I will be going into more detail on this system in a post in the near future. Stay tuned…
Don’t forget your lips are skin too! Take care of your lips. There are so many DIY recipes on Pintrest for yummy lip scrubs. Don’t be afraid to try some. Start out with just once or twice a week. Hydration is also key for your lips. Check out the Hydrating Lip Treatment by Chuda, it works wonders.
Your body deserves some love too. Be sure to keep a great body exfoliator on hand. And to moisturize after you exfoliate.
Don’t be afraid to try new things with your skincare, but not all at once. Give at least a couple of days between new products just to be sure your skin is happy😊
