How To Optimize Your Skincare Routine

Everyone wants glowing skin but with the wealth of information out there nowadays it can be hard to know what to do, which products to buy and where to go for your skincare to achieve this. Instagram influencers, TV shows and internet adverts all swear they have the best products and guidance to make your skin look amazing
 
Follow The Process
If you’re stocking up on some of the best skincare products around, you want to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. Most dermatologists agree that one of the best ways to do this is to ensure you’re applying products in the right order; from lightest to heaviest. For example, you can start with a lightweight serum, followed by a thin moisturizer or body cream and lastly a broad-spectrum sunscreen to lock it all in.
 
Clean & Green Brands
For most of us nowadays, ethical shopping is something that we’re constantly being made aware of and this is no different when buying skincare or beauty products. Clean beauty and skincare products are made using ingredients that are kind to you and your skin as well as being produced in an ethical way with resources that aren’t damaging the environment.  So whether that’s with a hand sanitizer brand that’s helping to fight the water crisis or with a cosmetic brand that only uses compostable packaging,
 
SPF Is Key
Just using sun screen when you are on the beach is definitely a thing of the past with most dermatologists now recommending adding some SPF based products into your skincare routine. Sun Protection Factor, or SPF, is a cream or spray that protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. Our skin is exposed to UV rays even on the cloudiest days so we should be applying sun protection every single day.
 
Don’t Neglect The Bedtime Routine
One of the most basic but essential skincare tips is to ensure your bed-time routine is consistent and thorough. It can always be tempting when you’re tired to just get straight into bed and forget about all of the products you have on your face until the morning but this is never a good idea. If you have frequent late nights and you’re struggling with this skincare resolution, make it easier for yourself. Keep micellar water and reusable cleansing pads next to your bed. This isn’t as good as a double cleanse but it’s better than sleeping in a full face of makeup.
 
Try Something New!
Everyone likes treating themselves to something new so keep your skincare product collection nicely updated throughout the year. Whether that’s with body lotion, hand wash, body butters or anything of the like, implementing new and exciting products into your routine can help you stick to it and get that glowing skin you’re after.
