The Best Advice for Proper Skin Care: What You Should Really Know

Posted by on October 21, 2020 in Skin & Hair Care with 0 Comments

You may already know how vital it is to wash your face twice a day and apply moisturizer and toner every day as well. It is important to use toner for your skin, which helps your skin become cleaner and does away with impurities, dirt, and bacteria. But aside from all these daily skincare habits, there are other ways you can improve your skin’s look and feel and have it emerge more radiant and glowing and free from blemishes. The road to better skin comes with other good habits, and if you stick to these habits and make sure to follow them, your skin will look much better before you know it. Here, then, is the best advice for proper skincare: what you should really know.

  • Always use the right sunscreen

Any dermatologist and skin specialist will tell you that sunscreen is critical if you want to fully protect your skin from sun damage. But not just any sunscreen will do – you have to choose a sunscreen with a broad spectrum and an SPF of a minimum of 30. So, when is the proper time to apply sunscreen? You should apply it right after moisturising, but before you apply your makeup for the day. You should make it a point to apply sunscreen at regular intervals throughout the day; once every two hours or so if you are going out, and right away if you have sweated from exercising or have gone swimming.

Protecting your skin from sun damage and the rays of the sun isn’t just about using sunscreen, either. It’s also about being mindful of when you go out. For instance, you should limit going out between the hours of 10 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon, and try to seek as much shade as you can when you go out. Don’t forget to wear protecting clothing, either, and protect your eyes with UV sunglasses and wear a hat.

  • Always remove your makeup in the evening

We've all done it before – we've been too lazy to remove our makeup in the evening, and we sleep with our makeup on. But this is a complete no-no, and you should avoid this nasty habit altogether. It takes mere minutes, but your skin will definitely thank you for it. If you fall asleep with makeup on your face, it can easily mix with the oil and dirt on your skin, resulting in clogged pores and – you guessed it – blackheads and breakouts. To easily remove your makeup, look for micellar water, which has small molecules of micelle that bond together to lift impurities from the surface of the skin.

  • Use anti-aging products at night

Even if you are still young – only in your 30s – or younger, you should already establish an anti-ageing skincare routine, especially in the evening. For instance, you can use some brilliant products that contain retinol and antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, and ferulic acid, such as various available aging products from www.totalbodycare.co.uk.

These products can combat the obvious signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles and dark spots, and they can additionally protect your skin from environmental damage and pollution and strengthen the barrier of your skin as well.
