Skin is the largest organ on the human body — and it’s one of the most visible, too, which means that it’s important to keep it looking its best. Luckily, it’s easy to build a great skincare routine that leaves your skin looking and feeling healthy, clean and clear. Interested? Read on to learn more about how to design the perfect skincare routine for your face and body.
1. Wash Your Face
Before beginning your skincare routine, start by creating a blank canvas. If you’re completing your skincare routine at night, remove any makeup you may have been wearing during the day with makeup remover or cleansing oil. Then, wash your face thoroughly with water and a small amount of your favorite gentle cleanser. A vibrating face cleaning brush is a great tool for this step: it uses sonic vibration to remove oil and dirt trapped deep in your pores, leaving you with clean, fresh skin. Don’t forget to do a final rinse to remove any leftover cleanser before moving on to the next step!
2. Add Toner And Serum
If you use toner or serum, now is the time to add it to your newly cleaned skin. Toner is popular because it helps remove dead skin from the surface of your skin and hydrates the underlying skin cells; not only does this make your skin look dewy and glowing, but it will help your skin better absorb moisture later on during your skincare routine.
Serums can vary widely: some contain vitamin C and should be applied in the morning to help your skin fight off free radicals during the day, whereas others can help your skin stay hydrated overnight. If your serum is water-based, apply it now; otherwise, apply an oil-based serum after you’ve moisturized your skin. While it may take some time to find the toners or serums that work best for you, they can make a huge difference in the health and happiness of you and your skin.
3. Eye Cream Is A Must-Have
Eye cream is specially designed for the delicate, sensitive area underneath your eyes, and it can be used to prevent dark circles, under-eye bags, and wrinkles. If you use eye cream, layer some on before you moisturize. Before you start slathering, though, make sure to account for the time of day that you’re adding it. Highly hydrating eye creams will retain fluid overnight, leaving you looking puffy-eyed in the morning, whereas metal roller-ball applicators that are stored in the fridge can be used to help fight back against puffiness. No matter what you choose, one thing is certain: adding eye cream is a simple step that can take years off your face.
4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Your skin is thirsty — give it some hydration! Moisturizing not only leaves your skin feeling quenched and looking radiant, but it can also help lock in the other products you’ve already applied. If you’re moisturizing in the morning, consider using a lotion that’s relatively lightweight and won’t leave your face feeling greasy or weighted down during the day. In contrast, if you’re moisturizing at night, consider using a thicker night cream that can spend all evening slowly hydrating your skin and protecting it from cold, dry air.
Finally, don’t forget to apply your moisturizer thoughtfully. To apply your moisturizer, consider using a Double-End Silicone Face Massage Wave Brush; the brush is great at evenly applying moisturizer, and it will also let you do so without transferring any of the dirt or oils on your fingers onto your face. It’s more than just a fun tool — it’s a smart way to keep your face clean and protected.
5. Always Wear Sunscreen
The most important part of any skincare routine is sun protection. Not only do the ultraviolet (UV) rays in sunshine cause wrinkles and premature aging, but they can cause skin damage and even lead to serious health complications. While many moisturizers contain SPF, some do not; it’s important to double-check and make sure that you’re wrapping up your skincare routine with some substantial sun protection (most doctors recommend SPF 30 or higher). And don’t forget about the rest of your body, too: if you’re going to be spending the day in the sun, your hands and exposed limbs will appreciate the coverage as well.
6. Time For Full-Body Coverage
While your face may get the most attention during your skincare routine, that doesn’t mean you should forget about the rest of your body! Don’t forget to moisturize the other parts of your body to keep your skin healthy and happy — this is especially important during cold winters, when skin can dry out and crack your hands and feet.
Additionally, there are plenty of other ways to keep your skin looking great. For example, spending a few minutes using a natural lip plumper can have luscious results that look great with your clear, dewy skin, and exfoliating your body with a bamboo body brush before beginning your skincare routine can make your skin feel good all over. Finally, show your feet some love with a foot shower silicone scrubber, which will leave your feet feeling clean and invigorated. Keeping your skin looking and feeling its best isn’t just about taking care of your face — it’s about maintaining the skin all over your entire body.
7. Try A Smooth Finish
There’s nothing worse than having clean, clear skin that’s covered in shaving cuts or painful razor burn. Fortunately, there is hope for people who want soft, smooth legs and underarms without any of the drama of shaving. If you love having smooth legs and underarms but hate using harsh chemicals or damaging razors, consider trying hair removal cream. Hair removal cream can remove body hair as if by magic, leaving you with wonderfully smooth skin without any cuts or razor burn. It’s an easy way to keep your skin looking incredible.
