I am going to be honest with you... I'm not always the best at taking care of my skin. Sometimes when life is busy my routine goes out the window. But by prioritising these basic skin care tips you will really notice the impact.
Taking good care of your skin is important for more than just your appearance. As the largest organ you have, your skin is essential to your general health. If you take care of it, it can help take care of you. This is why it is so important to have a well-thought-out skin care routine. It is absolutely worth the time and energy to take care of your skin on a daily basis.
🌱 Cleanse, tone and moisturise your face twice daily
So why should we use cleansers and moisturisers? What is the secret to glowing skin?
Here are three main reasons why cleansing, toning, and moisturising are essential for healthy, plump skin, along with ingredients to look out for, the best moisturisers, and products.
Accumulation of dead skin cells Did you know that we shed about 600,000 skin particles every hour? That's enough to make 1.5 pounds of skin a year! This means that your face can be covered with dead skin cells, which can lead to unwanted blemishes and breakouts if not cleaned properly. I recommend following an intensive, purifying cleansing routine with ingredients like clay, and green tea of choice to deeply penetrate and detoxify the skin.
Blackheads Toxins, free radicals, dust particles and dirt can be a threat to your skin
(especially if you live in a city)
Free radicals can damage your skin by trying to take in extra electron atoms, while toxins and pollution can cause blackheads, acne, and unwanted breakouts! Use This 3 Heroes Method , is recommended to keep skin glowing and detoxified while trapping lost moisture. Perfect for combination or oily skin. Using a daily cleansing, toning and moisturising regimen can do wonders for your skin.
I can't stress how important your skin's PH is. From flaking to irritation to dryness, acidic PH can stress your skin! Performing this routine daily will help rebalance skin's PH, lock in moisture, and keep skin looking radiant and plump longer.
💦 Keep hydrated - Drink plenty of water
The skin is the body's largest organ and is used to protect the body, store lipids and water, prevent dehydration, and regulate body temperature. Drinking more water is the most natural way to get the glowing healthy skin we want.
Drinking water flushes out toxins from your body, especially harmful toxins that can affect your over all health. Increasing your water in take can help flush toxins out of your body and improve skin and body health. Drinking also helps flush out toxins.
Water hydrates and refreshes the body and helps maintain skin elasticity. People who drink a lot of water have fewer scars, wrinkles, sagging skin, and signs of ageing than those who drink very little water. As you age, it becomes harder for your body to retain water. Therefore, introducing more water into your system will help keep your body and skin hydrated.
How much water should I drink per day? The amount of water you should drink per day depends on your metabolism, weight, size and routine. In general, adults should drink 5 to 8 glasses of water daily, and more if needed. Always drink at least 6 cups a day to stay hydrated and healthy.
Autumn and winter are less likely to get sunburned, but unprotected skin is still exposed to harmful UVA rays. UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, the thickest layer of the skin, causing premature ageing and contributing to the development of skin cancer. Winter is a popular time to visit the higher elevations during the ski season.
At higher altitudes, the atmosphere is thinner and less UV penetrates. For every 1000m increase in altitude, UV levels increase by 10% to 12% (World Health Organisation, 2017). This factor, combined with reflections from snow, brings up to 80% of UV radiation, which can cause severe sun damage to exposed skin and eyes.
To protect your skin from UV rays, it is recommended that you wear UV protective sunglasses and apply and reapply a broad spectrum SPF sunscreen to exposed areas every 2 hours.
