Whether you’re looking to correct skin issues or searching for a skincare routine that works for you, these tips can help you achieve your skincare goals:
Mixing Ingredients Is a Beauty Faux Pas
We’re all for mixed drinks at happy hour. But mixed skincare ingredients? That’s a big no-no. While it’s true that to keep your skin looking its best you do have to use a number of different products. After all, one product won’t solve all of your skin issues, whether it’s pigmentation or acne. Experts do agree that you’ll need more than one product. However, mixing certain skincare ingredients can oftentimes cancel each product’s benefits or even harm your skin.
When applying your skincare products do your best to avoid mixing products that contain benzoyl peroxide and retinol. Although both of these products are used to combat acne, when used together they cancel each other out. Instead, use your benzoyl peroxide in the morning and your retinol at night for the best results.
Routines Are Essential
Skincare looks different at every age. The products your daughter is using will be much different from the products that you’ll use. And if you’re been applying the same products or following the same routine that you started back in 2005, it might be time to reassess your own skincare regime. With a comprehensive anti-aging skincare routine you can keep your skin looking, and feeling, its very best. With a combination of cleansers, toners, and moisturizers you can fight the signs of aging such as fine lines, deep wrinkles, and loss of firmness.
Don’t Forget Your Hands and Neck
Skincare isn’t just for your face. Yet so many people tend to focus on the face that they often forget about the neck and hands where skincare is just as important. Does this sound like you? If so, it’s time to start taking care of the skin you’re in. For your hands, reach for hydrating creams that are formulated with a brightening complex. This helps with age spots and nourishes skin all while keeping your hands touch-ably soft. When it comes to your neck, treat this area just as you would your face. Whatever products you’re using on your face you need to be using on your neck, too. This includes exfoliating, moisturizing, and protecting your skin from the sun with sunscreen.
Sunscreen All Day, Every Day
Not just for the beach, sunscreen should be a part of your everyday skincare routine. The latest and greatest sunscreen products not only protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet light, but also benefit your skin in a myriad of other ways. For an everyday glow, consider a mineral-based sunscreen. A thin veil of tinted mineral-based sunscreen can color-correct red complexions, giving your skin a healthy natural glow while protecting against the sun. Some sunscreens are even formulated with antioxidants that help neutralize free radicals and repair some of the damage from pollutants. And when it comes to anti-aging, there’s sunscreen for that, too.
With these tips, from daily sunscreen to a comprehensive skincare regime, you’ll be on your way to great skin in no time.
