Check out our quick fire skincare tips to help keep you looking fresh as a daisy this spring…
Use a mask for balance
Nothing balances skin quickly like a mask, remember: Clay reduces oil and gels calm redness.
Hydrate whilst you sleep
If you suffer with dry skin, especially upon waking, then it’s best to fight dryness at night by using an intensive moisturising serum whilst you sleep.
Go slow with your skincare routine
Take your time when applying your skincare products, as this allows each product to absorb fully into the skin without counteracting each other.
SPF, SPF, SPF
The sun is responsible for the majority of fine lines on the face, so make sure you cover up with an SPF 50.
Peel it off
Chemical peels are great for allowing healthy bacteria to grow – something your skin needs. Gylcolic acid works the same way as a peel does, but in a gentler fashion.
Take your vitamins
Vitamins A, C and E are skincare essentials. Vitamin A comes in the form of retinol, which stimulates collagen. Vitamin C brightens the skin and can help diminish dark spots and marks. Vitamin E is filled with healthy acids helping the skin’s natural collagen.
Using a foaming face wash helps to cut through oil that has built up on the skin without being harsh.
Under the sheets
Sheet masks are extremely popular, and there is a good reason for this. These types of mask help to push hydrating ingredients into the skin. Using these once a week can do wonders for your skin.
Using benzoyl peroxide on acne prone skin can help kill acne causing bacteria. Using a 2.5 or 5.5 percent formula will work without the annoying skin flakiness. For stubborn blackheads, use salicylic acid.
Don’t dry out
Not completely drying off your skin and moisturising whilst it is still slightly wet can help seal in moisturisers.
Pigmentation that’s turned hyper
Use skincare that contains antioxidants to help fight hyperpigmentation during the day, and apply retinol at night to help shed dead skin cells.
