The Benefits of starting a skincare routine
A good, efficient skin care routine should include the following elements:
Use a gentle cleanser and a gentle washcloth when washing your face each evening. Being gentle is key with your skincare. We always recommend a cleansing balm as it is non foaming, non drying and does not alter the pH of your skin
Soap of any kind is too harsh for your skin (and most foaming cleansers are also in the category) They alter the pH of your skin which plays havoc with your skins natural oil balance
Your skin then has to work hard to restore its natural balance and breakouts, excess oiliness or dryness and wrinkles are the result
wholesome ingredients are so important. Quality skin-care ingredients can help your skin, much to how eating well improves your body.
A cleanser should be used every night
A cleanser isn’t necessary in the morning, when you might prefer to just have a quick rinse of your face instead but a cleanser can be used if you feel its necessary in the morning
A moisturiser adds water, oils, butter and waxes to your skin
These help to hydrate your skin and prevent water loss from your skin cells
They also add nutrients back to your skin and help skin to look and feel soft and moisturised
All traditional moisturisers/ lotions contain a mixture of oil and water which is ideal for your skin
A face oil or balm is a water free substance that ideally should be combined with or applied on top of a product that contains water (a moisturiser or serum)
This is because your skin ideally needs water and oil for optimal hydration
So there you have it
If you are starting a skincare routine, choose a cleanser and a moisturiser and enjoy the many benefits of your new skincare routine
