No time for a rigorous skincare routine? You can still treat yourself nicely if you’re competent in the fundamentals. Anti-ageing and skin-problem-preventing benefits of good skincare and a healthy lifestyle.
1. Keep Face Clean
We all know removing makeup and washing our faces twice daily is necessary, but what about our brushes? For this reason, we try to schedule weekly cleaning sessions. First, get some hot soapy water, give them a spin, and then rinse and dry them off.
As a result, your skin (and your brushes) will be in pristine condition. Why? Day after day, the bristles can accumulate oil, makeup residue, and dead skin, which can then be transferred to the user’s skin and irritate. In a pinch for time? Brushes can be revitalised just as effectively with a facial washing wipe.
2. Simply put, less is more
The best skincare products are made to work well with the smallest possible amount. A pea-sized amount is recommended, so don’t deviate from that! There’s no use in using a tonne of expensive night cream only to have it all wind up on your pillowcase. So what, you took a dollop of cream too much?
Applying any leftovers to the backs of your hands, necks, and collarbones is one of our top recommendations for maintaining healthy skin.
3. You should always read the label
Identifying the good stuff on the pack and what works best for your sensitive skin is a breeze when you know your Agave from your Bisabolol. One of our top pieces of advice is to only use products made by trusted brands that are specifically designed for sensitive skin and to do your research on ingredients (link to ingredient’s site).
Thus, what do we get? Your skin will continue to feel pampered and calm, and you can go about your day knowing that whatever you put on it, you know precisely what it is.
4. No pain, all the gain
We argue that it is not worth the hassle to try and improve your skin by enduring pain. Has using an exfoliant ever left you with a red, irritated face? Put an end to your reliance on it immediately. Do you find that after using your cleanser, your skin is dry and tight, yet the T-zone oil is removed?
Let it go. If a product in your skincare routine doesn’t make your skin feel wonderful, you should probably toss it. And when you do make it to the skincare section of the store, be on the lookout for products that contain skin-nourishing components and lack irritating chemicals.
5. Turn your skincare products into multitasking marvels
We can achieve a lot with the help of modern skincare products, including keeping our skin clean, revitalised, healthy, and looking and feeling fabulous. In addition, they have the potential to accomplish more when applied to the skin. Wait, what? Well, freezing down your toner in the refrigerator before using it is a quick way to wake up tired skin in a flash, and utilising a cleansing facial wipe to repair shaky makeup when putting your fave red lip is a winner.
These quick and easy skincare hacks will transform your products from good to multitasking wonders.
6. Keep your phone clean
Indeed, we never leave home without our mobile devices. However, they are grossly contaminated with grime, sweat, and germs. In other words, if you use your phone to receive calls, send texts, and check Instagram regularly (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t? ), you may experience breakouts in your jaw and cheeks. Choose earplugs (so you can keep conversing), wash your hands frequently, and wash your face as soon as you arrive home to eliminate breakouts.
7. Prep your skin before makeup
Our advice is to prepare your skin first before applying your smoky eye. Applying a moisturiser first creates a velvety surface upon which the rest of your cosmetics can glide and gives the appearance of plump, healthy skin. Have you noticed any areas of your skin that are dry or lacking moisture? As the skin absorbs the foundation, it may seem uneven or vanish all together. If your skin is feeling dry while you’re out and about, throw a Simple Water Boost Hydrating Booster into your purse.
Why not take heed of some of the best Simple skincare suggestions, such as regularly cleaning makeup brushes and not being too harsh on our skin? You’ll see a dramatic improvement in how your skin looks and feels.
