The Importance Of a Routine
Without a proper skincare routine, you will not be able to stay consistent with the products you are using, and sadly you won't be able to see results you desire.
Consistency is key when it comes to skincare!
When trying to achieve perfect glowing skin, you need to make sure you are following the routine DAILY to see quick results.
But the question is...What products should you be using?
1. Oil Cleansers
When starting you're skincare routine, after removing your makeup, it's important to double cleanse. Double cleansing is a process that involves cleansing with a oil-based cleanser, and after cleansing with a water-based cleanser.
Oil cleansing helps removes the dirt, and makeup from your face, and does not disrupt the natural Ph level of your skin.
You can either buy cleansing oils online, or to your nearest beauty store. Make sure you buy products that are specifically made for YOUR skin type.
Natural oils you can also use, for a cheaper price: Jojoba and Almond oil.
2. Water Based Cleansers
After cleansing with an oil cleanser, the following step is to cleanse AGAIN, but with a water based cleanser. It can be any cleanser that foams, making your skin free from dirt and debris.
When double cleansing, make sure you take the time to massage the product in your skin, patting it in, for better results.
After cleansing your face, is a huge must to exfoliate. Why?
By exfoliating your face, you are removing the dead skin cells, increasing the blood circulation which makes your skin looking younger with glow.
When exfoliating, make sure you pick a scrub that is gentle and not too harsh for your face. When scrubbing make sure you use your hands, going in circular motions.
Try exfoliating everyday to achieve that glow! If not, you can do it at least 2-3 times a week.
Next step for your routine, is essence! You might be thinking that this routine seems way too complicated, but essence plays a huge role in your skin care.
Essence is a rich formula that helps target wrinkles, fine lines and uneven skin tones.
Which means beautiful younger skin!
To apply essence effectively, its important to spray the product directly to your face, and with your fingers, tap in the product to make sure it gets INTO your skin.
Ampoules are serums with higher concentrations that you're meant to use as a booster. It has the same benefits as essences,but,serums are a great way to achieve beautiful smooth skin.
To apply serums or ampoules, its important to massage your skin into tiny circular strokes. No pulling,which causes wrinkles.
7. Sheet Mask
The fun part is here! SHEET MASK!
What is the fun about masking? Well, the right sheet mask can help hydrate your skin, remove dirt and excess oils, and makes your pores appear smaller. By applying a mask for 15-30 minutes, your skin will feel smooth and clean.
P.S- After using the sheet mask, make sure to use the essence left in the package! Don't let it go to waste!
8. Eye Serums
The main use for eyes serums, is that its ingredients helps to reduce the appearance of under eye circles, puffiness, and wrinkles.
After applying the sheet mask, apply the serum with your middle finger, under your eyes, not rubbing, but, by tapping the skin under the eye smoothly.
A suitable moisturizer can help with preventing and treating dry, damaged skin. By putting on moisturizer, you are improving your skin tone and textures. Moisturizers helps with smoothing the skin, also acting as a temporary barrier.
To apply, had a dime size to your hands, smoothly rubbing the product into your skin. Do not forget the neck, the spot where most people tendt o ignore!
Lastly but not least, sunscreen. Many people love to go to the beach, with their bathing suits, and stay under the sun for a long period of time to get a tan.
Is that really healthy? NO!
Yes, the sun provides us with many things, but one thing for sure is that the sun is our enemy. By staying in the sun too long, you of course get a sunburn, and even worse!
Its why to finalize your skincare routine, before going out, it is important to ALWAYS apply sunscreen before leaving. SPF 30, 50, etc. The more you put, the less you are to worry about the sun damaging your skin.
