With a tonne of lotions and potions surrounding us these days, we should be looking the best we have ever had! But you will still come across women complaining about dehydrated skin, acne scars, flaking and ageing issues despite spending tonnes on high end, opulent skincare.
Have you ever thought why? Skincare at the end of the day is topical and does not work as effectively as supplements that work from within your body. So if you’re simply slapping on your expensive serums and creams in a hurry and expecting them to work miracles then forget it. Consistency and hard work is needed to get the most out of your skincare products and we’ll show you how to.
Your skin has the ability to absorb 60% of skincare ingredients that you slather on the top layer known as the epidermis. Make sure to prep your skin before applying skincare. How you can prep your skin is by indulging in a religiously followed 2 step cleansing routine, incorporating a hot flannel to remove the product.
In the 2 step cleansing routine, incorporate an oil based cleanser first as it will get rid of the oils on your face and then a cream cleanser to suit your current skin concerns for instance dehydration or deep cleanse. Using a hot flannel will help you get the most out of your cleansers, allow your skin to wake up and absorb all the goodness whilst stimulating blood circulation.
Next up is obviously toners, acidic exfoliants and serums. They act as a perfect canvas to apply moisturiser on top. Especially if you are using an anti-ageing one, following this step will help the ingredients absorb into the skin better. Toners help balance out the pH level in your skin after cleansing much quickly than your skin would naturally do. Follow immediately with acidic exfoliants which will penetrate into the skin deeply and absorb in better due to the toner applied. A mixture of toners and non acidic exfoliants make a brilliant canvas for your serums and moisturisers especially during night time when your skin has more time to spend recovering and repairing.
Giving yourself a facial steam, indulging in facial massage movements and tapping your skin with piano fingers also help stimulate blood circulation helping your skincare products apply better and sink in deeper. If you follow all of the above steps and still feel you are not getting the most out of your luxuriously, well spent on skincare, try including a at home Dermaroller kit in your skincare regime.
What this little handheld device does is to primarily fade scars, acne marks, wrinkles, stretch marks and so but it’s regular use also has a complementary benefit of opening up the pores and allowing the skincare products applied after the treatment to apply better and sink in dramatically better than usual. You will instantly see glowing skin and the benefits of your skincare products being finally transferred to your skin. Dermaroller‘s 0.5mm needles are safe to use on the skin and deep enough to stimulate collagen production which can also help with anti ageing.
