Your skin has a unique story with several chapters that evolve over the years. Age, hormones, sun damage, and lifestyle can cause changes in your skin’s health, appearance, texture, sensitivity, and moisture-level. With the change of seasons and the passing of time, where to focus your skincare efforts change, too. Spring and summer are ideal times to be conscious of sun protection, from sun-protecting ingredients to investing in an SPF. In autumn and winter, you’ll want to take your moisturizing up a notch. Cold dry weather and low humidity dries out skin.
Take a good look at your skin to determine how the latest season has affected your complexion. Any sun damage, age spots, dehydration, lack of firmness, acne or breakouts? With winter coming, it’s time to use products with potent ingredients to improve the appearance of your complexion. Some ingredients may make your skin sun-sensitive and are not appropriate for summer. For instance, an effective retinol serum will help with cell turnover and skin transformation. But it’s best to use when you will not have as much sun exposure.
Here are six timeless tips to include in your skincare regimen.
Start with Cleansing
Morning and night, cleansing your face is important. Why wash your face in the morning if you already washed it the night before? It seems like your face should be clean, especially if you have a clear complexion. Actually, we wake up with all kinds of impurities on our skin that should be washed off in the morning. These include bacteria, dead skin cells, allergens, and nighttime products that need to be removed. Then throughout the day, our skin attracts dust, dirt and pollution. Environmental impurities, makeup, skincare creams and SPF products from the morning can all build up. At the end of the day, you’ll want to wash off the day. Whether at the sink or in the shower, your skin will thank you to be rid of bacteria. Cleanse your pores and prep your skin for your nighttime products, to help replenish your skin while you sleep. For an extra boost, exfoliate skin a few nights a week.
Most of us started our first skincare routines as pre-teens. These were the basics for skincare maintenance: cleanse, tone, moisturize, protect. Treatment products were added if needed: for breakouts, sensitivity, sunburn, etc. As we get older and our skin starts to change, we notice different things. Skin texture changes and complexion gets more or less oily, dry, or sensitive. Changes in pore size, acne or redness, fine lines or wrinkles may become more noticeable. You may feel the need to improve your complexion.
It’s never too late to start making changes to your skin, and this is where preventative skincare comes in. If you’ve been diligent with your skincare maintenance routines, it’ll be easier to add in more products. Forming good habits when you’re young makes it easier to transition into new habits as you get older. If you’re starting to see fine lines and wrinkles, you may want to consider an anti aging serum. A well-formulated retinol serum can help stimulate collagen production and encourage cellular turnover. This is beneficial in the short and long term, ideal for your lifelong skincare routine. This helps skin have a fresher-looking appearance, more radiant and healthy-looking.
Manage any Sun Damage
It’s important to manage any sun exposure and sun damage you may have. Most of us agree, nothing feels better than the warm rays of the sun on your face in the spring. When the weather warms up, it feels very comforting. But once summer hits, you’ll want to stay mindful of your sun exposure. It can be very easy to get too much sun, even to the point of sunburn. At each stage of your life, you should recognize the damage the sun can do to a healthy complexion. Sun damage is not always immediately noticeable, making preventative measures even more important.
Consider limiting your time in the sun or addressing sun damage and blemish scars with an effective scar gel. Be diligent with adding preventative products into your everyday skincare routine year-round. A dark spot serum can help address any marks, sun damage or scars. This can help even out your skin for a healthier-looking complexion.
Drench Your Skin with Moisture
Make hyaluronic acid a part of your skincare routine. Ingredients that naturally improve your skin are timeless and should remain the foundation of your long-term skincare regimen. Nature creates some of the best ingredients that enhance your skin’s look and feel. For example, hydrators such as hyaluronic acid keep your skin moisturized by naturally maintaining hydration levels. It’s a humectant that holds one thousand times its weight in water, helping to plump and moisturize the skin. It helps maintain skin hydration levels and enhances skin’s protective lipid barrier. This helps improve the appearance of skin tone and texture. While hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your skin, over the years those levels decrease with age. Natural skincare products with hyaluronic acid can help you improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines at any age. Adding products with this ingredient to your skincare routine is essential for a more youthful-looking complexion.
Consistency is Key in Your Skincare Routine
Consistency is your best bet in staying diligent with your skincare routine. You can use the best products with quality formulas, but not see results if you struggle with consistency. We all go through personal seasons of life at one time or another, when our routines go by the wayside. Be it personal life, health and fitness, relationships, job, or beauty routines. Being too tired or not having an interest to even wash your face at night. A good way to stay on course without feeling overwhelmed is to have a backup routine for such times. Try a basics or a minimalist approach. Cleanse, moisturize and protect. This way, your skin is not neglected entirely. This basic habit also makes it easier to add in an eye cream or an anti aging serum.
Once you have found your ideal combination of serums and creams, make a conscious effort to stick to your routine. It might seem hard at first, but after a few weeks, you’ll breeze through every step with ease. Your skin will thank you year after year. Build the skincare routine you’ll love for years to come. Seeing these results gives you the extra nudge to put in the effort to indulge in a face mask occasionally.
Finish the Day with a Moisture Mask for Glowing Skin
After you’ve washed off the day with your favorite facial cleanser, there’s nothing more pampering than relaxing at bedtime with a nutrient-rich facial mask. As you let your worries from the day float away, you’ll feel the calming and soothing effects on your skin. What’s your favorite way to mask? A sheet mask and a bubble bath? A creamy mask and a good book? Or drenching your face with a hydrating overnight mask that seals in moisture?
Whether a cream or a sheet mask, you’ll get a boost of hydration. This will help renew the look of your skin’s tone, texture, and overall appearance. Go ahead, indulge! You deserve it. Your glowing skin will thank you.
