Have you ever wondered how you could improve your skincare regime? Now you can! We have put together a guide to show you how you should be caring for your skin each day, and what you can do to give you skin a boost over the weekend.
In the Morning
Although your skin type does play a big role in how you care for your skin, everyone should follow these four steps: cleanse, apply active ingredients, hydrate, and add sun protection.
Following these four steps, a basic routine would include washing your face every morning with a foaming cleanser. This will remove excess oil that has built up on your skin while you were having your beauty sleep.
After you have washed your face, use a light-weight serum catered to your skin concerns and overall skin type. This serum should contain what your skin needs, for example collagen peptides, antioxidants or dark spot correctors. It is important to apply these serums before your moisturizer so that the ingredients are more easily absorbed into the skin. Then apply a moisturizer that is compatible with your skin type, and your SPF (this step should never be missed out).
Your night-time routine should always start by removing your makeup with a mild cleanser and toner. Then use a low-grade exfoliant to remove any leftover makeup, oil and dead skin cells. This will also help your moisturizers absorb better.
Apply the same light serum you used in the morning and the add a layer of rich moisturizer on top of it. You should use a relatively thick moisturizer so that it seals in the goodness of your previous products and helps the skin rebuild overnight. Lastly, apply an eye cream to the entire eye area.
Over the Weekend
Since you have the time, why not give yourself a facial? Prepare your skin for the facial by first cleansing and exfoliating your skin. Once clean, apply a luxurious-feeling face mask that will nourish and protect your skin from future damage.
