Everything we do in life requires structure and repetition in order to succeed. And your skincare regimen is no exception. Your morning jog, going to work every morning, and even that jump shot you practice every evening in the driveway, all require your daily attention – otherwise, they will all go down the drain. Thus, building a daily routine for your skincare regimen to look and feel your best is key.
Here are 5 tips to incorporate into your daily routine in order to ensure maximization of your skincare regimen.
#1 Wash Your Face Twice Daily
Aim to wash your face twice daily; once in the morning and once at night. Morning: you are preparing your face for the application of different creams and serums. These morning applications include: moisturizers, sunscreens, and antioxidant type products. Night: you’re washing off the impurities that have accumulated on your face throughout the day, such as environmental toxins and dirt. In addition, never go to sleep with make-up on your face – wash it off!
#2 Smart Eating, Exercising & Sleeping
Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet, exercise, and get plenty of rest! Eat a diet packed with antioxidant rich fruits and veggies, limit high fats and high sodium, as well as sugar filled meals. Exercise plenty while breaking a good sweat, and aim for at least eight hours of beauty sleep every night.
#3 Use Sunscreen
Apply sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher, with a broad-spectrum formula – meaning, a UVA and UVB blocker – daily. Sunscreen not only helps fight the signs of aging, which includes fine lines, wrinkles, loss of pigmentation, and dehydration, but more importantly, it helps protect against skin cancer. Sunscreen has many great benefits. Use sunscreen smartly in order to look your best for years to come.
Moisturize daily, especially with products that contain Vitamin C for boosted collagen production and skin thickness. Our Advanced Vitamin C NutraSerum has 20% stabilized Vitamin C to ensure your skin receives maximum protection and rejuvenation. This is key for healthier and brighter skin!
Also important, pay close attention to the zone around your eyes because it’s one of the thinnest areas of skin on your body. Being exposed to the sun the most, your face – especially the eye area – is highly prone to sun damage prior to other areas of your body that are covered up.
Thus, apply a moisturizer right after you step out of the shower, as that is when your skin will be best suited to absorb it.
#5 Avoid Hot!
Taking hot showers, with steam, is not very healthy for your skin. Hot showers tend to dry your skin out. Thus, use warm water instead. Your skin will thank you, because it will be healthier, and less dry and scaly.
There you go!
These 5 tips can easily be incorporated into your daily routine in order to simplify your skincare regimen. Together they will help you look your best, and you will more efficiently reach your skincare goals. The easier it becomes with time, and the more fun you will have.
