We asked our team of technologists and skincare professionals with decades of experience and picked for you some of their best tips.
So let’s dive into the principles of a healthy, younger-looking skin!
#1 Start from within
Yes is sounds cliché, but that’s simply because it is true. Make sure to take care of your well-being first. Because no matter what you do for your skin topically, if you are not in a good shape from within, it will show on your face.
Get your 7-8 hours of sleep every night, drink your water, do your workout, eat your veggies, take your vitamins, have your laugh with friends. All checked? Now you can go to Nr. 2.
#2 Build a routine and stick to it
The key to having good and healthy skin is so basic yet so many people just don’t get to do it. It is to build a skincare regimen.
And when we say “regimen”, we don’t mean a 10-step, 22-step, or 128-step Korean skincare routine of layers, and layers, and layers. Keep it simple. What you really truly need is good hygiene, a lot of hydration, and protection. So that would mean:
- Cleansing (and exfoliation), especially important in the evening to make sure you remove all the dirt, bacteria, and oil build-ups from the day;
- Moisturizing – you could never be too young to start with it. This is so crucial because when you keep your skin hydrated, it will not only look good, but will also remain healthy and perform its natural barrier functions.
- Protection is the last step. Free radicals can make you age faster and it’s not pretty at all. You could never go wrong with sun protection and antioxidant serums.
See? It is easy as 1-2-3.
Once you have made this a habit, then you can add some extra care such as serums, essences, masks etc., but don’t skip the basics.
#3 Choose products that work for you
Focus on your main skin issues and try to address them first. Whether it is dehydration, blemishes, or wrinkles – you know best what you’re dealing with, what is your skin type, your age, etc.
So the best strategy would be to put yourself and your needs before the current trends and fashion. Don’t necessarily fall for what is advertised on the TV, or what is recommended by a certain influencer, because there is no one size fits all in the world of beauty and self-care.
#4 Give your products time to work
We all want results and we want them overnight. But did you know that impatience could cost you your beautiful healthy skin?
Ingredients actually require some time to do their good job for the skin. You may not notice your wrinkles or pimples disappear the next day, but persistence will pay off.
Moreover, the skin renews its outer layers every 28 days. It is a good idea to try the new product at least for a month before you decide whether it is a good fit (that, of course, is if you don’t have any irritations).
A common mistake is changing too many products too quickly. First, you will not get the results from any of them. Second, your skin might react badly to these frequent experiments, with breakouts and bumps. And lastly, you might make your skin hypersensitive and fall off the beauty wagon for a long time. Resist the urge to try everything at once, and your skin will thank you for treating it kindly.
#5 Follow the directions for use
This might sound trivial, but don’t skip it! Use the products the way the company that produced it instructs. Every skin is different and individual intolerance to any of the ingredients in any of the cosmetic products out there is possible. So do perform a sensitivity test prior applying the new product on your face to avoid hazards.
Also, use as frequently as directed. Don’t go overboard with physical exfoliants every day, twice a day, if it says “1-2 times a week” on the packaging. Read carefully what should be left on and what should be rinsed off.
And your best bet would be to use products from the same product range, it is not about a brand or a design, but rather a matter of formulation. Products in the same ranges are developed to work good in combination without conflicting ingredients.
In case you have any questions, always turn to the manufacturer for more information and guides.
