The skincare industry can be a bit difficult, so we are (always) there to help you. And we fully understand his dilemma; With literally hundreds of innovative products launched each week, and the discovery of another “essential” ingredient, finding out which products you need and which are just a trend can be steep. Here are 12 maintenance tips that cover ALL basics.
1. Know your skin type
Understanding and recognizing your skin type is the most important thing you can do for your skin. If you are unaware or misinformed, it may affect the natural balance of your skin and cause irritation, inflammation, rash, and even premature aging if the wrong product is used. It is also important to remember that this may be more of a type and may change with time or seasons. So always listen to your skin
2. Make sure you know how to create layers
If you do not apply your skincare products in the right order, you can prevent them from being completely absorbed, which means they are not as effective. The general rule is to apply the lighter formulations first so that they can easily be consumed without the barrier of heavier creams. If you are using thicker creams, allow your skin to soak in the product (at least a few minutes) to avoid stacking (the little balls you’ll get if you use too much product).
3. Vitamin C is the best light sensor
Vitamin C is one of the most potent antioxidants on tablets. It protects your skin from environmental stressors that can accelerate aging. An addict has even been shown to promote and promote the synthesis of elastin and collagen. In combination with its ability to repel dull skin, it is thus wholly transformative.
4. Do not apply too much product
When it comes to skincare, “more is more” is not a good rule. If you apply too much moisturizer, the product is likely to contain pills or clog your pores. Moreover, it is a total waste of product and money to know that your skin can not absorb it anyway! Make sure you follow this size chart:
5. Do not use expired products
Retaining the products after the expiration date is a no-no: it’s terrible for you. Unfortunately, your favorite beauty products contain bacteria (primarily if you use them frequently) and can cause infection and irritation. Besides, they do not work very well. We speak with you, tense mascara! After a while, the products can produce harmful toxins that can be dangerous to your health and your skin. If you do not remember when you bought your face cream, sun protection factor, foundation, mascara, or eyeliner, you should usually eliminate yourself!
If you do not know how long you can use your product after opening it, check out this little floating bottle. So, if you read 12 million, you have a full year to enjoy your product. Usually, lipsticks, makeup, eye shadow, and base are found throughout this exhalation area, up to 24 meters. Skincare products that contain active ingredients can range from $ 3 million to $ 6 million. So you know that it pays to check this. Especially for skincare products with active ingredients or SPF, as these may lose their effectiveness and may not provide the protection you need.
6. Leave your beans alone!
Try to resist the impulse as tantalizingly as pressing a button, as it is more than likely that the bacteria will spread and even leave a scar. Although it appears that you have disinfected the area and cleaned the grain, there is so much going on in your skin that you can not see, and it is this bacterium that will spread. That means we understand that no matter what we say, you’ll probably try someday,
7. You need to change your skincare program throughout the year
The weather is another external factor that can devastate your skin. Think about it: In winter, the combination of low outside temperatures and indoor heating can dry out your skin. In summer, it is humidity, sunshine, and high temperatures. It causes oily skin, brown spots, and even sun damage. For this reason, it is essential to fight against the different temperatures all year round with different recipes and ingredients.
8. Exfoliation is the key
Exfoliation is an essential step in good skincare. There are two types of scrubs; Physical and chemical peels. We recommend using a chemical cleaner as natural cleaners are slightly more abrasive and exert too much pressure, increasing the risk of damage. With a chemical peel such as AHA or BHA or an enzyme-based formula, it penetrates the skin, removes dead skin cells, and promotes skin regeneration. This keeps your skin clean. However, use a single chemical cleaner two or three times a week to avoid over-exfoliation.
9. Sleep masks are also essential
Sleep masks are MUCH more than a trend in skincare. As you sleep, your skin will be repaired and restored as its metabolism improves, allowing your skin cells to more effectively reproduce. Using a moisturizing mask at night improves this regeneration process by acting as a protective barrier against dirt or bacteria so that your skin is at its best when you wake up.
10. Do not forget your neck
Neglecting the neck area is one of the most common mistakes in skincare, which is a bit crazy because it is one of the most significant gifts at an age. Therefore always follow your skincare by the neck. It means double cleansing, toning, and moistening. Also, be gentle and massage with upward strokes so as not to lower the skin, just where you do not want your skin to fall off. If the necklines disturb you,
11. The sunscreen is everything
If there is one thing ALL comments will tell us literally; It is essential to use sunscreen daily to protect your skin from sun damage. 90% of skin aging is under your control and directly related to sun exposure. Protect your skin even on a cloudy winter’s day with sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and a 5-star UVA rating. Just apply sunscreen every day, and your skin will thank you.
12. Always clean twice
Double Cleaning is our favorite k-beauty tip and has completely transformed our skin. By cleaning twice, you can be sure that all the dirt, bacteria, oil, and contaminants that have accumulated in your skin during the day are eliminated. On this basis, you can correctly apply your routine night skincare routine. Always double cleaning
