Skincare is one of the most important things to help you stay healthy and look young. Establishing a skincare routine is a vital step in your everyday life. This should start in your teens and you should gradually change it to suit your age, skin needs, as well as outdoor factors. So here is the best advice on your skincare routine this spring.
Do It Korean-style
Have you ever wondered why Korean women look young even in their sixties? That is because they take good care of their skin. And if you have ever stumbled across an ad for Korean cosmetics, you have seen a lot of products. The typical Korean skincare routine consists of 7 to 10 steps, meaning 7-10 different products.
It is not without reason, though. Many women buy expensive products but apply them incorrectly. You must apply them in a specific order. The first product can help your skin absorb better the next one. Also, you first need to clean your skin and apply moisturizer later. It makes no sense otherwise.
Use Organic Products
Instead of buying expensive synthetic creams and tonics, invest in organic products. It is important to have healthy ingredients to make your skin healthy. Many small businesses specialize in organic skincare products. They will often set aside the time to help you articulate your skincare needs and then aid you in selecting the right products.
Make Skincare Products at Home
Homemade skin care products are often better than the ones purchased in drugstores. They are certainly paraben- and alcohol-free. If you have fresh ingredients and you know their origin, even better.
There are plenty of articles and videos on how to make your own face mask, what ingredients are best for which skin type and what they accomplish, how to properly store them and maximize their use.
Don’t Forget to Exfoliate
After a long winter and low temperatures, your skin is in dire need of nourishment. But before you start revitalizing it, you should exfoliate. To prepare your skin for spring, you need to properly remove the damage left by wind and frost. Exfoliation achieves just the effect.
You will, of course, need to pay attention. Don’t over-exfoliate, as you can dry your skin. This can also leave lasting damage or skin defects, so be careful. Two or three times a week is enough.
Use Essential Oils
From removing blemishes to helping you with acne or anti-aging, the essential oils have many uses. You just have to know which essential oil is most suitable for your skincare routine. For example, rose oil is known for its hydrating and soothing effects. If your skin is prone to redness, you should definitely use it. Rose oil also promotes skin cell growth, so it has an anti-aging effect, too.
Another essential oil to use is cinnamon oil. It has many benefits but is mostly known for soothing inflammations. Lavender and camomile oils are also essential for your skincare. You can buy ready-made products, make your own cream or diffuser, add them to baths, or use them directly on the skin. If applied directly, test them the first time for allergies and follow the instructions on the bottle.
SPF for Keeping Skin Young
As spring is coming, that means more sun and also using SPF. You should also note that just because you can’t see it during winter, it doesn’t mean the sun isn’t damaging your skin. SPF must be a part of your skincare routine all year round. But come spring, you may want to switch to a higher factor.
Drinking water greatly impacts your whole body. What’s that got to do with skincare, you may ask. Well, the overall state of your body affects how your skin looks. So staying hydrated will improve the overall look of your skin too. It will seem young and glowing.
When spring comes, your skin starts to recuperate from the harsh winter. You should help by using the proper products in your skincare routine. It is also important in which order you use them, so start with removing makeup and cleansing, then toning, and moisturizing in the end. Sleep well, eat healthily and drink water to help your skin look younger.
