Tips For Perfect Skin
Your skin during the day suffers from all the products that you put on, the pollution and the sun and it needs your daily attention to be perfect. Three important things that my mum has taught me and things that I’ve learnt through experience are to always cleanse your face, always moisturize and always use sun protection.
Cleansing your skin
Cleansing your skin every day is very important. You must always take off your make-up and never sleep with it. Not cleansing your skin daily causes your pores to plug up making your skin feel oily and break-out. Once in a while you should deep clean and exfoliate your skin so all the dirt can come off. I’ve found that make-up wipes don’t work that well and make-up doesn’t completely come off. The best combination is after you wipe off your make-up with the wipes use a cleansing gel or soap to take it off completely.
The products that I use to cleanse my skin are:
Johnson’s face care –Daily Essentials Make-up wipes
Castalia –Dermopur Gel Nettoyant
Moisturizing is a must for your skin. After you cleanse your skin you should always use a moisturizer because your skin can absorb more easily the cream, plus your skin tends to get drier after cleansing. Also in the mornings before you wear make-up or before you go out you should put on a moisture cream. It’s very important that you choose the right cream for you that matches best your skin type.
The moisturizer that I use is:
The Body Shop –Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream for Combination/Oily Skin
Using Sun Protection
A very important step that you should add to your daily routine is using sunscreen. The sun’s radiations can very easily damage your skin and making it grow older faster. It doesn’t matter if it’s summer or winter you should always wear sunscreen during the day not only on your face but on your lips to. There are a lot of lip balms that have SPF in them. To tell you the truth I’m a bit lazy when it comes to wearing sunscreen daily, so I’ve found some great products that have sun protection effects too. The one that I love and use almost every day is a tinted moisturizer that has SPF in it. You can also find make-ups that have SPF , the only downside is that the sunscreen the make-up has makes your skin look a bit shiny. Also important is to use an after sun cream, but that step is more about your body and not your face. What the after sun cream does, is that it moisturizes and cools your skin from the sun’s radiations because the sun tends to burn and dry out your skin.
The products that I use are:
Sunwards –Face Cream SPF 30
Korres –Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free SPF 30
Apivita –Suncare After Sun Cream-Gel
Korres –Mandarin Lip Butter Stick SPF 15
