Are you ever guilty of being lazy in your beauty routine? Nearly all of us are sometimes. Maybe you don’t take your make up off every night or you just make do with soap and water. The thing is that it doesn’t take much to spend 5 minutes at the sink morning and evening to give your skin a little TLC. It makes such a difference!
So what are the 5 essentials to a good skin care routine?
No. 1 – Invest in a great cleanser or face wash. We absolutely love the renowned cleanser by Eve Lom. It is a cleanser at the higher end of the price range but it is really worth it, just look at its celebrity following. We aren’t sure how but it works as a toner and exfoliator as well – which makes it even better value for money.
No. 2 – Commit to a regular skin care routine. Try to find a set of beauty products that suit your skin and don’t change your routine too often. Don’t swap products too often and if you find one you are happy with, stick with it.
No. 3 – Make sure to choose an SPF moisturiser with UVA and UVB protection so you are protected from the sunlight-related ageing. We really like. We particularly like Kiehl’s SPF23 cream as it also contains lots of antioxidants to further protect the skin from damage.
No. 4 – Exfoliation is a deep cleanse for your skin, reaching deeper into the pores than regular cleansers or face wash. Don’t scrub your skin roughly though, or you could be in danger of damaging it. We love the Tea Tree Scrub from. We adore the Tea Tree Exfoliating from Aesop.
No. 5 – Everyone’s skin can benefit from a facial oil so give one a try and see how soft and smooth your skin becomes. Facial oils are fantastic for all skin types yes, even oily skin so give one a try. They really are the best, especially for during the winter months when your skin is drier.
