New Year, New Skin Care Routine!

It’s time for those New Year resolutions and I can’t think of a better one than keeping on top of your skin care regime!  Good skin care equals younger looking, glowing skin so here are my suggestions for a great skincare routine...
 
 

Morning

  • Start the day with a good face cleanse. Use a gentle daily face wash or if in a hurry, simply splash with water. This will help to refresh the skin after a night’s sleep as skin perspires during the night. 

 

  • Swap your face wash with a gentle exfoliant once or twice a week to help remove dry, dead skin. This process of exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin which enables your moisturiser to work more effectively.

 

  • Don’t forget to choose a moisturiser with an SPF15 (minimum) and use every day, not just when the sun shines!

 
 
Evening
 
Cleansing at bedtime is very important.   Not only will it cleanse the day away but your makeup too!! 
 

  • Use a more creamy cleanser at night.  This ensures all traces of makeup are removed without drying out your skin. 

 

  • Toner not only helps remove the last traces of makeup/cleanser but also tones and tightens your skin so I highly recommend it. 

 

  • Always finish your routine with a nourishing night cream. Night cream is a great way of ‘feeding’ your skin whilst also aiding repair and regeneration of skin cells. My current favourite is Nu Skin age LOC Transforming Night Cream. 

 
 
 
Treatment
 
If you would like to give your skin an extra boost here are a couple of additional things you should try…
 

  • Use a face scrub followed by a face mask once a week. Choose a hydrating face mask if you have dry/mature skin or a deep cleansing mask if you have oily/troubled skin.

 

  • If your skin is extra dry and looking a little dull, try using a brightening, plumping face mask overnight after cleansing. Apply a thin layer all over the face, leave to soak in overnight and simply wash your face in the morning. This should give your skin back its natural glow!

 

  • Above all else, try and use products from the same brand as they tend to work well together, giving you the most effective results.  

 
 
One last thing – Be patient!  It may take 6 weeks before you see a definite improvement in the condition of your skin so stick with it. It’s worth it!
 
Until next time!
