A beauty routine can take a lot of time and still not bear the desired results because it does need time in reality and the results depend on what products you use and how. Yes, it doesn’t deliver in a night, it needs patience before you start noticing the improvements in acne, scars, fine lines, pigmentation, etc. whatever your concern may be. Your facial skin turns new every 30 days or so and this decides how effectively your skincare will show results and how much time would that needs to sink in.
Nevertheless, if you want flawless skin all year, you will need to have some tips handy to not mess with skincare during the day. Since you have to prepare your skin for the rest of the day you have to make sure that the right products kick in.
- Ice Water
Feel like rejuvenating yourself? Is your puffy eye ruining your facial radiance? This step is going to help you for sure. The first thing to do right after you wash your face is to soak your face in ice water for a few seconds. This will depuff your face, brighten up your face, and give you instant energy so you start your day loudly. Ice water works wonders on tired-looking skin. You are much more motivated to start your regimen and your pores appear less under the ice.
- No Retinols
Dermatologists often warn people about overdoing stuff. Especially when they begin putting retinol when the sun is out, thinking that it will ‘activate’ the retinol but destroys the skin barrier. Remember to never use such activity during the day especially when stepping out of the house. To avoid irritation and save your skin’s healing capacity, you need to avoid putting on abrasive chemicals on the skin during the day. Leave that hustle for the night.
No amount of words can stress the importance of sunscreen. We all know that the protection of the skin from sun exposure can help prevent skin irritation, skin cancer, and hyperpigmentation. Of course, you need your dose of sunlight for existence but wearing sun protection (SPF, hats, and sunglasses) will only save your skin from damage and you will thank yourself for being that cautious. Never step out without SPF and if you have Vitamin C on, don’t skip sunscreen, ever.
More calming elements in your morning skincare would ensure healthy-looking skin throughout the day that doesn’t suffer from acne unnecessarily. Such factors can be procured from water-based solutions or skincare products that will not only layer up easily but also boost hydration in the skin. Since you expose your skin to dust and sunlight during the day, this will help create a stiff skin barrier.
Vitamin C serum can go a long way in improving the tone of your skin. This is because the serum effectively smoothens out discoloration or hyperpigmentation with daily usage (application after every 8 hours is recommended). When you are doing your morning self-care, you would need that extra punch to keep going. This not only brightens your complexion making you feel radiant but also boosts your skin health.
So these were some useful tips to have a beautiful and great morning skincare routine. Make sure you are in adherence with these tips which are rules in reality. The application of the products should never be aggressive, remember it is your facial skin at the end of the day. No matter how much it can withstand, go slow and soft. Feel the luxury and freshness every time you sneak into the self-care regimen.
