Most peoples new years resolutions don’t make it past the first couple of weeks. So instead of trying (and failing) to keep up with something unrealistic, why not choose something that is going to be easy to maintain and rewarding.
We can all take our advantage of our skin from time to time, so make 2018 the year that you really give it some TLC. A good skin care routine will not only help you keep up that clear complexion, but can also help to fight off those lines and wrinkles for a few more years.
Taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. Just making a few small commitments can make some big changes to your skin.
Remove Your Make Up Properly At Night!
We are all guilty of falling asleep in our make-up from time to time, but this is one habit that you need to kick! Clogged pores are one of the biggest contributors to bad skin, which can be caused by particles of make-up being left on the face. Make-up wipes can make this worse, so if you are using these each day to remove your make-up at night, stop right now!
Invest an effective, yet gentle exfoliating face wash and give your face a deep clean both morning and night.
Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise!
Never underestimate the power of a good cleanser, toner and moisturiser. Using these twice daily is a brilliantly inexpensive way of retaining healthy, radiant skin. This three-stage process, starting with cleansing, helps to eliminate excess oils and impurities that can be damaging to your skin. The toner specifically nourishes and hydrates the outer layers of your skin, helping to restore its natural pH balance.
Regardless of whether you have naturally dry, or oily skin, it is extremely important that you moisturise. This not only hydrates your skin but also helps it to retain elasticity, when prevents wrinkles developing.
Keep Your Hands Off Those Pimples
It can be tempting but you have to resist when it comes to popping those pimples, especially if you suffer from acne. Picking at your breakouts can lead to severe inflammation of the skin, spreading of acne and scarring.
If you have active acne, don’t despair. Technology and medical research has advanced tremendously over the last few years and there are now a number of different acne treatments that can really help. This includes laser skin re-surfacing technology, which has been recognised as one of the most effective acne treatments. It uses light energy to kill the bacteria in the skin that causes the breakouts.
Clean Those Make-Up Brushes
The amount of bacteria that can be found in make-up brushes is shocking, yet few us wash our make-up brushes as regularly as we should. Using a dirty make up brush, especially with your foundation, is a guaranteed way to develop blemishes. Even when you’re not using your brush, it is still gathering dirt, dust and dead skin cells, on top of the product that you using.
To avoid skin irritation, try to wash your make-up brush at least once a week, especially if you use it daily.
