Summer is almost here, and the signs of the colder seasons are first and foremost seen on our skin. Even if we’ve taken good care of it throughout winter, the changes show.
Skincare is, therefore, such an essential part of your daily routine—and also night. Make your routine in combination with a couple of facial yoga exercises, and I guarantee you that you’ll be looking and feeling fresher, and you’ll even be thinking clearly.
- First and foremost, it concerns your face, but it is true for your whole body—keep your skin moisturized, hydrated, and clear. Use serums to strip your face clean of makeup. It leaves the skin looking fresh, clear, and almost glowing. Plus, use the opportunity to massage your body gently. It will boost your blood flow through your body, leaving you feeling more energized.
- If your skin is prone to acne or blemishes, you overindulge in chocolate or cheese from time to time (and who doesn’t?), and especially during ‘that time of the month,’ our skin likes to break out in acne. In those instances, resort to peel pads that reduce acne and breakouts and open the pores for your skin to breathe more easily.
- Use peel pads every 3–4 days. Don’t overdo it because you’ll strip your skin, and it won’t feel good either. If you’re not comfortable using chemical peels, opt for its natural substitute that is easily made of olive oil, sugar, and fresh lemon juice. And, at the end of your treatment, don’t forget to moisturize again.
- If I stick to one rule with skincare—and one rule only—is to wash my face at night before I go to sleep. It can be simply dipping your face into the water, but I also like to use a gentle cleanser. Alternatively, if you don’t have one or wish to spruce up routines a little, you can always go with a hard hand soap just to mix things up a little. However, you don’t want to overdo things and use products that are going to strip your skin.
- If you wear a lot of makeup, you need to make sure to use hydrating masks, which will leave your skin looking and feeling fresher. Leaving masks on for a couple of minutes will leave your skin soft, hydrated, and moisturized. It probably gets dry often too. The feeling of being pretty with makeup on is a wonderful one, but once you take it all off, it is a nice moment when your skin starts to breathe again. Consider adding face masks which normally hydrate your skin well. It is a way of moisturizing by not weighing your skin down.
- Plus, when you are left with a little bit of extra moisturizer, you can always rub it into your hands—they tend to dry just like your face does.
- There are many products on the market, and you just have to make sure that they fit your skin type and do it justice. You only deserve the best, girl!
