The question everyone wants to know is how.
That means it is decision time, and you need to hunker down and come up with a skincare routine that works for you. Keep reading for inspiration.Know your skin and what it needs and then create the perfect skincare routine for YOU!Click To Tweet
Morning Skincare Routine
Cleaning your face in the morning using cold water is a great pick me up. Wash your face, apply serum, and moisturize it.
Make sure your cleanser is gentle yet effective, so your skin doesn’t get unnecessarily aggravated.
If your skin care products contain antioxidants, they are best to be part of your morning routine. The daytime is when your face is most exposed to pollution and the sun.
Antioxidants help counteract reactive oxygen species and free radicals that break down elastin and collagen and mutate DNA. This causes sagging, dull, and pigmented skin.
After cleansing, you can also choose to use an eyelash booster. We’ve been using the Ultra Eyelash Booster by Cosmesis.
It is best applied morning and night directly to your lashes. Just make sure it fully dries before using any other products.
The Ultra Eyelash Booster will help you get longer, thicker lashes over time by providing essential nutrients and moisture. It does this with the power of plant stem cells and peptides that help regulate your eyelash growth cycle.
We love that this is applied via a wand versus a brush. It makes it a lot easier to apply!
You can purchase Cosmesis products at DR Vitamin Solutions online.
They offer only:
the very best quality nutritional vitamins and supplements that make sense out of the vast array of products on the market today – all for the lowest prices permitted by the manufacturers.
After that, be sure to end your morning skincare routine with sunscreen. We all know how bad the sun is for our skin.
Skin Types and Care
If you have dry skin, use a moisturizing serum that has vitamin C plus ferulic acid. Want an additional hydration boost? Add hyaluronic acid too.
If your skin is oily, use an antioxidant serum that is light and oil-free if you are prone to breakouts.
If you are prone to acne, brown spots or redness, a moisturizer that has niacinamide in it is a good idea. It will assist in balancing your oil production and improve the texture of your skin.
Evening Skincare Routine
For your evening daily skincare routine, start by removing makeup and cleansing the face. Going to sleep without cleaning your face is the greatest skincare mistakes you can make.
If you choose to cleanse your face with makeup wipes, try to use natural ones. Similar to how it’s better to use a natural oven cleaner in the kitchen, natural products should make their way into your beauty routine too. Try to avoid wipes that contain a lot of chemicals.
After cleansing, use toner and any serums you may need. Then moisturize like crazy, including using an under eye cream. Lately, we have been using Under Eye Rescue Cream by Cosmesis.
Under Eye Rescue Cream helps lessen dark circles and puffiness. It does contain a potent antioxidant tea extract, so you can also use it as part of your morning routine as well. Bonus!
It absorbs quickly and has a pleasant scent too. It may be in our head, but we swear we can feel it tighten our sensitive eye skin shortly after applying it.
Don’t Forget Exfoliation!
Avoid using harsh scrubs. Experts recommend using a chemical product for exfoliating. These products contain BHA and AHA. Though they sound scary, they are not abrasive as a scrub.
If you are still reasonably young or have dry skin, don’t overuse products that contain BHA or AHA. Too much can cause dryness and flaking and can make it harder to tolerate other anti-aging products.
Try to exfoliate a couple of times a week after cleansing during your morning routine. Stay beautiful!
