Do We Really Need A Skincare Routine?
Updated: Oct 23, 2019
Your body surface is home to one of our largest organs - The Skin. Our skin breathes, removes impurities, and helps us to look and feel great. It defines us and makes us appear different; it is amazing what our skin can really do. We put our skin under a lot of pressure. Females wanting to look their best, men putting their skin through work or lifestyle challenges and children growing.. We pluck, wax, tan, sunbathe, we hit, scratch, bump it, bruise and cut it. We also colour, stain, tattoo, paint it and even shave, pierce, stretch it and take bits from here & stitch on there and the list could go on….. our skin goes through a lot.
Great skin improves the way you feel about yourself and in turn glowing, healthy skin helps to promote well being. It goes without saying that we all will age but how quickly our skin ages can be slowed down if we care for it. Our skin is one of the most tell tale signs that age is happening. They all say that ‘Prevention is so much better than a cure’. As with most things, if you care for it and look after it it will last longer. Well your skin’s no different. So whatever you have done to your skin in the past now is the perfect time to take care of your body’s largest organ.
There are many ways to look after your skin and the first one (CLEANSE) is something that has been instilled in us since we were born. Removing the daily grime from our body is a great start to preventing any build up of dirt and other matter getting into our pores and clogging them up which can start an infection. Then (EXFOLIATE) - your skin renews itself daily and as a result if you don’t remove the dead skin cells your skin will look dull, dry, flaky. You can also start to see signs of spots and grease patches where there is a build up of oil, dead skin and all the products you have been placing on top of the dead skin cells. Therefore exfoliation is one of THE top tips for great skin. Then putting some form of (MOISTURISER) onto your skin. A good moisturiser can do wonders & will help to prevent fine lines and improve the appearance of your skin over time.
Here are the skin care products that have been proven over the years with good science to help your skin. You need these for an effective skin care regimen: Cleanse, Exfoliate, Moisturise, Sunscreen, Repair/anti-aging products (vitamin-A cousins (like Renova and Retinol), vitamin-C serums, a few other antioxidants, and cell growth factors)
All the other stuff out there on the market?... Go ahead and play with it—have fun! Talk to your friends about it. Make it a luxury for yourself that is part of your own self-care.
All the above points are brilliant for women and men alike. Starting these treatments from an early age will help so much in the prevention of poor skin and early signs of aging. They also have many more benefits than just on the skins surface.
