Your skincare regimen should be an essential part of your daily routine, just like brushing your teeth and eating breakfast! Each person’s skincare regimen is unique to their skin type and tone, but a few steps should be included in everyone’s daily routine. Having healthy, clean skin is an important part of self-care and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and with cold weather approaching, we want you to take extra care to keep your skin hydrated and avoid any dryness. Take a look below at what we suggest implementing to your everyday skincare habits. If any of the items below spark a need in your routine, give us a call! We offer complimentary aesthetic appointments to help our clients reach their skincare goals.
Remove Makeup Before Bed
If you regularly wear makeup, always remember to take it off before going to bed (even if it is mineral makeup). Sleeping with makeup on can lead to clogged pores, eye irritation, and even dry skin. Not removing eyeshadow and mascara can really bother your eyes and lead to redness or sometimes, even infection. Foundation, concealer, and other liquids, on the other hand, cause pores to clog up, which leads to breakouts. The leftover residue from these products can also block skincare products from reaching your skin, which results in dryness. We all fall asleep without wiping off our makeup, every once in a while, but be sure not to make a habit of it. Your skin will thank you for it!
Regularly Wash Your Face
Cleaning your face is a no brainer when it comes to creating a daily skincare regimen. Washing your face with the right cleanser and toner is key to removing dirt, oil, and any other elements that can get on your skin throughout the day. It’s best to wash your face at least once a day, but for best results, you should clean it every morning and night. Your face picks up a lot of debris throughout the day, which is why you should clean it every night before bed to avoid waking up with clogged pores and breakouts. Your pillowcase can hoard dirt and oil, so you should wash your face every morning. This is the best way to start the day with a clean, glowing face.
Moisturizing is a crucial component of your everyday skincare routine! We suggest moisturizing every morning before heading out for the day to keep your skin from drying out and again at night after you’ve washed your face. Throughout the fall and winter, the cold weather can cause your skin to become dryer than usual. This is why during these cooler months you should hydrate your skin from the inside out. Remember to drink plenty of water to ensure your skin and body are both hydrated! You can also boost your skin’s hydration with a serum. Serums act as a primer for your moisturizer, helping your skin absorb more
Always Wear Sunscreen
In addition to using a serum and moisturizer, you should keep your skin protected from the elements by always wearing sunscreen. If you plan on being outside, even during the colder months, you should always cover up or use SPF protection. Overexposure to the sun’s rays is one of the most common skin problems and causes of early aging, wrinkles, and more severely, skin cancer. We suggest using one of our products that has an SPF of least 15 for everyday use. Our products include weightless protection, so you won’t even feel like you’re wearing SPF. Every morning, be sure to put some on!
