I must admit the start of the year is a time that I struggle with the most. I find it really hard to get the new year kick started and in particular to break some of the naughty habits I’ve picked up over the summer holidays. Unfortunately my skin care is no exception to this and I often start the year off with a dull, dry and generally lack lustre complexion. This week I’m going to try to break my naughty skin care habits to get my glowing, healthy skin back, so here’s my list of top skin tips that are so simple and effective you’ll be wondering why you didn’t start sooner!
To get the most out of your face care products, routine is vital. Commit 5 minutes twice a day to following a simple skin care routine, like Botani’s Cleanse, Treat, Hydrate. Seriously, you spend 5 minutes on your teeth, why not give your skin the same love too?
This simple skin care tip can have a huge impact for your skin! Not removing your makeup is a big no-no for keeping your skin healthy. Your skin uses the night time to restore and repair itself, and by not removing your makeup you are putting a stop to this process. Add to this the potential for increased breakouts and it is worth the time to remove your makeup each night!
Although the temptation is strong as the weather heats up, don’t skimp on moisturisation. Hydrating your skin is one of the most important factors of face care as it helps to combat dehydration, dryness and prevent sensitivities. If you’re worried about your skin becoming oily, switch to a lighter moisturiser (try Botani’s Boost Balancing Moisturiser).
Restore lost nutrients and protect your skin from free radical damage with a serum rich in antioxidants and vitamins, like Botani’s Acai Berry Active Antioxidant Serum. Increased exposure to the elements along with warm, dry weather conditions can cause damage to your skin, so make sure you top up your defence stores daily to keep your skin glowing.
Is your skin looking a bit dull? Are you guilty of any naughty skincare habits?
