During the Winter, we can get a little lazy with our skincare routine. A lot of the time you may apply makeup and mask over how your skin is looking. But during those colder months, your skin is right there in the elements. So it can become dry and dehydrated. However, as we now approach the Summer, it seems like the perfect time to change things and give your skincare routine a spring clean. With that in mind here are a few tips to get you going.
Look at the products you currently use and consider changing them
We can be so loyal to a brand or product sometimes that we forget there is so much more out there to buy. Sometimes if you have used a product for too long, it can lose it’s effect on how your skin looks. So don’t be afraid to try some new products out. You can head down to your local beauty counter and ask for a little advice. Mostly they will check your skin type, and they may even provide you with some samples to try before you buy. Sometimes skincare can be pricey so you may want to consider using a Macys coupon or something similar to help out with the cost. Once you know what you are doing, you could easily order it all online.
Think about what you put into your body as well as on it
When it comes to our skin’s health and look it isn’t always about what we apply to our skin but what we put into it. Drinking plenty of water and eating a healthy balanced diet can make a real difference to how you skin looks. Before all these lovely lotions and potions were available how else did women take care of how their skin looked? It is recommended to drink over two litres of water a day and get up to five portions of fruit and vegetables in your diet. You have to eat and drink so make sure it’s the right things.
Have a separate morning and night time routine
Our skin needs help and protection at different points of the day and night. So doing the same thing morning and night won’t give you the full benefit. For example, you may need a day moisturizer with a built in SPF protection for the day and a more nourishing cream for the evening. Many people have more time in the evening to take care of their skin so consider that when buying some new products. You might want something quick and easy for the morning and something a little more long winded for the night time.
Try a new way of doing things
Finally, don’t be afraid to try new things. By this I mean if you have always used a cream cleanser then why not give a face wash a go. If you have never tried a deep nourishing face mask, then get one bought and have your own little pamper session. Sometimes just because we have always done things in a certain way doesn’t mean that trying something different won’t work.
I hope these tips help you spring clean your facial skin care routine.
