Our skin is undoubtedly precious.
From the time we’re born, the importance of looking after our skin is drilled into us. There’s no denying we must look after our skin at every stage of our lives. As we make the gradual transition from baby oil to night creams, remember that healthy and refreshed-looking skin is vital not only for your looks but for your health.
You can check out what dermatologists are saying but, here are our top 7 skincare tips to incorporate into your self-care routine.
We All Scream For Sunscreen
You remember the old tongue twister, ‘whether the weather is hot or whether the weather is cold, we’ll be together, whatever the weather, whether we like it or not.’?
Well, that’s how we feel about sunscreen.
You should be wearing sunscreen on your face, neck, and decolletage every single day, no matter what. Not only is it the best anti-aging tool, but it also protects your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
However, if you’re worried about the sunscreen causing breakouts try and find a brand that advertises non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic formulas.
On the other hand, if you’re afraid about sunscreen leaving you ashy, you can add a few drops of bronzer or foundation to your sunscreen to avoid looking washed out.
Hydration Starts From Within
If you ask any dermatologist, they’ll tell you that skin hydration is of the utmost importance. When you’re dehydrated, your skin is dry, saggy, and pale.
So, start by drinking eight glasses of water every day and choosing products that emphasize their hydrating qualities.
You’ll be rocking a fresh-faced, dewy look with a glow that will go for days.
Combat Oily Skin With Foaming Cleansers
If you have oily or combination skin, you might be noticing breakouts in your T-zone or along your hairline. A foaming face wash or face mask is just the right product to help you cut through oil without drying out your skin.
We also think it’s pretty fun to feel the mask bubble up and down on your skin but, if that sort of thing weirds you out, a good exfoliating cleanser will cut through oil while tackling clogged pores.

Take Care Of Your Skin… All Of It
We so often think of skincare as facial care, but it’s worth remembering that we’ve got skin all over our bodies.
It’s the biggest organ we have, and we should make sure it’s well taken care of.
You don’t even have to shell out a lot of cash to get a body scrub that will make your body look amazing. Try mixing coconut oil and sugar to make an at-home body scrub, it smells fantastic, and it will work wonders.
Get Your Vitamins In
Since we were kids, we heard of the benefits of getting in vitamins and minerals from a healthy diet.
Similarly to hydration, healthy elements in our diet can be mirrored in our skincare.
Using vitamin C in serums, creams, or topical treatments has miraculous anti-aging benefits, helping to tighten and brighten your skin.
Get The Dewy Look Of Your Dreams
With your skin looking healthy, you’ll want to mirror the glow in your make-up look. There are plenty of tutorials out there if you’re looking for something step by step.
If you’re wondering what sort of products you should be on the lookout for, think creams, bases, and foundations with humectant ingredients.
Keep the dewy look going with natural-looking cream blushes, glossy lips, and a clean, bright look with your eye make-up.The skincare industry can be kinda overwhelming, which is why we’re here to help. Here are 7 skincare tips that cover ALL the bases! Click To Tweet
Set It Up
Now you’ve got that killer make-up look on, make sure it stays by using a setting spray. Not only do these sprays boost the staying power of your regular make-up, but they have been found to have skin cooling, hydrating, brightening, and glow-inducing benefits.
Just two-three sprays after applying makeup will do wonders and allow your 10/10 look to stay a 10/10 look all night.
In short, get on top of your skincare routine, and you’ll be set for life. Stay beautiful!
