Double cleansing is a must, especially if you wear makeup/SPF. Even if you don’t, cleansing twice can ensure your skin is super clean and bouncy and ready for the application of treatments, toners, and creams. You just don’t want to use anything too hard if you’re going to double cleanse, After all, this could strip your skin and make it dry. Or alternatively, it could increase oil production and make it greasy. You need to find a balance without compromising your skin barrier. It’s a good idea to use a creamy, hydrating cleanser as your first cleanse. hen use a slightly more foamy cleanser as your second cleanse. Make sure you avoid using hot water on your face, and use a clean flannel to remove everything properly!
Know Your Skin Type
Your skin type will impact the sort of products you use. Mature skin, for instance, would perhaps get on better with anti-ageing products, alongside super hydrating products. Those with oily skin would want to avoid anything too heavy. Pay attention to who the products you’re buying are made for. If you’re struggling to wrap your head around this, visit an esthetician or a dermatologist.
Eat And Drink Well
Staying hydrated and eating balanced meals can help you to glow from the inside out. When you’re having a bad skin day, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s down to something you have consumed. It could just be hormones. Or how well you’re treating yourself. Make sure you’re fueling your body in the best way possible can really make a difference!
Choose Your Products Carefully
When it comes to skincare tricks, choosing your products and the brands you want to work with carefully can make a big difference. Check out the vegan skin care at a place like doseofcolors.com and compare with non-vegan skincare. You’ll see that many of the ingredients in non vegan skincare tend to be harsh and not great for the skin.
Consistency is a must with any skincare routine. You should perform your morning and night routine each day. You won’t always get instantaneous results. So you need to stick it out.
Give Your Products A Chance To Work
Products that you introduce into your routine are going to need to be given a chance to work. Some products may give you results right away, such as exfoliating products. However, other products may need a couple of weeks, or even a couple of months before you can see their full impact. Don’t throw a product away immediately if it isn’t doing anything for you. Some products can also cause breakouts when you first start using them, but can settle down after a little while. Of course, if the breakouts persist longer than a few weeks, the product probably doesn’t suit your skin. Pay close attention and don’t change too much about your routine at once so you have an understanding of which product is having a certain effect.
Apply SPF Every Single Day
SPF should be applied every single morning, no questions asked. The sun can damage the skin regardless of the season, and even whether it is bright out or not. Keeping your skin safe and protected will help you to avoid damage and premature ageing – even when you are in the house. Sun damage can still happen through windows!
Exfoliate – But Not Too Much
Exfoliating your skin will ensure a smooth base and buff off those dead skin cells. You can use a physical, gentle scrub (be careful, as some create micro tears in the skin and aren’t safe). Alternatively, using a product like glycolic acid can help to buff away dead skin and reveal a glowing base beneath.
