Tip 1: Always Double Cleanse!
One of the most effective skincare tips, double cleansing has become the norm, not the exception. This 2-step cleansing process includes melting/emulsifying heavy makeup, impurities, and buildup from the skin surface with an oil-based cleanser and following it up with a gentle face wash that purifies and cleanses the skin. This ensures thorough cleansing of the skin, down to its deepest layers.
Tip 2: Hydrate—Inside, And Out!
Staying hydrated has always been a golden rule in skincare, whether it’s a sufficient amount of water-intake or incorporating hydrating products in your skincare routine. Hydration is important for all skin types and helps revive dull skin, and retain a healthy amount of moisture in the skin barrier. Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid are the best actives to include in your skincare products for healthy, hydrated skin.
Shop Niacinamide & HA Face Serum for plump, hydrated-looking skin.
Tip 3: Maintain A Healthy Diet
Apart from maintaining a regular skincare routine and hydrating, eating healthy, fibre-rich food has to be the next most important lifestyle practice to follow. A healthy diet with an adequate amount of greens, fibre, and protein will ensure glowing skin that looks nourished from the inside out. In fact, eating fruits and vitamin-rich food is the best way to revive your skin from within!
Tip 4: Let Your Skin Heal Overnight
Your skin needs time to heal and replenish after a long day, as it is subjected to sun damage, impurities and pollution, heavy makeup, and tugging and pulling when you’re taking it all off at night. The best tip is to use overnight hydration masks and night creams that soothe and hydrate the skin and repair the skin barrier while you sleep.
Shop HA & Tazman Pepper Overnight Hydration Mask for overnight skin repair.
Tip 5: Detoxify Your Skin
Our skin picks up a lot of dirt and grime throughout the day, which eventually seeps into the pores and clog them. Clogged pores can cause excess oil build-up that invites acne, dullness, and an uneven skin texture. Detoxifying your skin is the best way to extract these pollutants and unclog and tighten your pores to ensure a smooth and even skin texture.
Shop Detoxifying Sea Algae Mask to deep clean your pores.
Tip 6: A Healthy Sleep Schedule Is A Must
To put it simply, a healthy sleep schedule is your free ticket to healthy, glowing skin. A good sleep schedule gives your skin the time to repair and heal, by boosting collagen production and naturally preventing premature signs of ageing. Rest assured, you will wake up to youthful, replenished skin.
Tip 7: Make Vitamin C Your Best Friend
Vitamin C is known to be the most effective treatment for naturally glowing skin. A healthy amount of Vitamin C in your skincare routine is guaranteed to boost your skin’s natural glow and swipe dullness, and sun damage out of your skin. Its multiple skin benefits speak for themselves, as it fades dark spots, reduces acne, evens skin tone, and keeps the skin youthful.
Shop Beauty Shield Vitamin C Serum to treat dark spots and pigmentation.
Tip 8: Never Forget Your Sun Protection
There’s no denying how important SPF is for radiant, healthy skin. Sunscreens have many skin benefits that go beyond sun protection. They boost the skin’s natural glow, fade fine lines and wrinkles and reverse the daily sun damage that our skin goes through. A lightweight, non-greasy sunscreen is a must-have in your skincare arsenal for all-year-round protection.
Shop Solar Shelter Sunscreen to protect and repair UV damage.
Tip 9: Don’t Overlook Lip Care
Amidst all the skincare products and practices, we often neglect and compromise on our lip health. If you wish to flaunt a gorgeous pout, it’s important to include lip care in your daily skincare routine. Using a lip scrub and a lip mask help exfoliate dead skin on the lips and hydrate them to reveal a plump, rosy pout.
Shop Lip Luscious Duo (Lip Mask & Lip Scrub) for healthy, plump lips.
