5 Skincare Routine Tips for 2022
As we get a little older and wiser, we start to realise just how important investing in your skincare routine is. When you’re in your teens and early twenties we focus less on what we put into our bodies such as: alcohol and high fatty foods which we know have a positive correlation with congested skin and breakouts. We tend to use make-up wipes to ‘remove’ our make-up (or perhaps sometimes sleeping with our makeup still on) and using SPF is unheard of.
We soon realise prevention is key in helping us to stay looking as youthful as possible. The investment in Pharmaceutical or Medical Grade skin care (depending on your skin concerns) is worth every penny to help your skin stay cleansed and hydrated with products that have stronger ingredients that can penetrate deeper into the skin.
Caring for your skin is a journey that never stops and is forever changing as our skin will require different needs depending on our age, hormones and lifestyle changes.
Sun Protection is Key
One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems – as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. Use a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen protection with an SPF of at least 30. Apply sunscreen generously.
Use a Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid Facial Serum
Using a Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to plump and soften the skin to prevent it from getting itchy and inflamed. It helps moisturise and hydrate those dry patches on the skin and to smooth out your fine lines and wrinkles by improving collagen production.
Vitamin C is a great product to use and has many benefits like helping to stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and discoloration. It also protects your skin from free radical damage and boosts radiance by brightening dark spots caused by acne scars or sun damage.
Treat Yourself to a HydraFacial or Chemical Peel
Monthly or Quarterly visits to get a professional treatment such as HydraFacial or Chemical Peel helps to deeply cleanse, extract, hydrate and target your specific skin needs.
Clean Make-up Brushes & Beauty Blenders
To help prevent breakouts it’s important to regularly clean your makeup brushes as they accumulate dirt, oil, dead skin, and bacteria. Keeping them clean helps to prevent bacteria from spreading.
Choose your skincare routine wisely
When deciding on a skincare routine, speak to a professional who can understand your skin’s needs. You want to include products designed to cleanse, hydrate, protect and treat the skin. Skincare that is powerful yet gentle, without stripping essential oils. At Inside Aesthetics we love the iS clinical range that are botanically based products with breakthrough formulations to resurface and polish the skin while providing hydration.
