The secret to a beautiful complexion is looking after your SKIN. You need to stick to a routine, know your skin type, invest in quality products and never leave skin unprotected. So whether you try new products or use your favourites, there’s a few rules to follow to care for your skin. Here’s four steps to great-looking skin.
Stick to a routine
Always wash and cleanse your face in the morning and before you go to bed. This will help reduce blocked pores and breakouts. Exfoliate once or twice a week and choose a gentle PH-neutral product, which will respect your skin’s natural balance. Try this Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser. This intelligent, aromatic, creamy infusion glides on to the skin and lifts off all impurities and makeup. It fuses probiotic and peptide technologies with BioOrganic plant and flower essences. This formula hydrates and soothes dull and dehydrated skin, promoting a luminous, dewy, radiant glow whilst helping to prevent skin ageing.
Know your skin type
Get into the habit of checking your skin type on a regular basis. The skin is a living organism and changes according to your diet and age. Dry skin has different needs to oily skin, so use the right products at the right time. Try this Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, clinically proven to smooth wrinkles by up to 78% and increase hydration by up to 45% in 15 days. For maximum results, apply after Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Serum.
Invest in quality products
The skin is about 70 percent water, 25 percent protein and two percent lipids. It is important to keep the skin well moisturised, so choose products that balance the water level within your skin. Try this Laneige Water Bank Skin Mist, which will provide your skin with a hydrating lift. The skin mist provides a refreshing combination of minerals and lemon verbena to assist the cell’s functions to retain moisture and leave it feeling fresh.
Never leave skin unprotected
Protect against the harmful effects of the sun, which accelerates skin ageing, by including an SPF moisturiser in your beauty regime. Prevent chapped lips by applying restorative cream as often as necessary. Gently remove make-up around your eyes as your skin in this area is very delicate. Always pat this area when towel-drying or applying moisturiser to avoid dragging the skin. Try this Estee Lauder Anti-Oxidant Beauty Benefit BB Creme SPF 35, which moisturisers, protects and perfects all at once. This lightweight BB Creme creates an instant, even-toned, healthy look. Delivers high-performance, oil-free hydration and helps to control excess surface oil.
