It’s already February! Are you still sticking to your old skincare routines? Or are you looking for other ways to make your skin more beautiful? Check out these routines that you can add to your beauty regimen.
Minimize your skincare routine
The 12-step routine used to be popular. But now people are paring down their skincare routines.
Look at all the skincare products you have and get rid of the following:
- those that are not working for you – just because it’s a popular brand or your friends are using it, doesn’t mean you should have a product in your vanity too.
- those that you haven’t used for the past six months – there’s probably a good reason why you haven’t used it (see above).
- those that have expired – your skin might break out if you keep using something that’s already expired.
You’ll be able to declutter your routine and products this way. Then you can start focusing on the things that do work for you. The basics you need to cover are cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. A shorter routine is less of a hassle than a long one. So, you won’t have any excuse for skipping your skincare routine.
Use a face mask weekly
There’s nothing more indulgent than letting a face mask soak on your face for 15-30 minutes. Whether you like a deep-cleansing mask or a hydrating one, you’ll be able to give your face a much-needed rest and boost after a week of dirt, grime, and stress.
If you’re looking for something new, the experts from Kedma Cosmetics give this tip: “use a face mask with natural ingredients like Dead Sea minerals and plant extracts. These will provide the necessary vitamins and minerals your skin needs.”
Don’t forget your neck, hands, and body
Yes, your face is the first part that shows signs of aging. But don’t forget that your neck, hands, and other parts of your body also develop wrinkles and unsightly spots. So, extend your skincare routine to these parts as well. And since we’re talking about body parts, don’t forget your lips. Don’t wait until your lips are chapped or split before using a lip balm.
Remember to use sunscreen
You probably do this already, but it’s better to remind you of it: always put on your sunscreen. Even during overcast days, the sun’s UV rays can still penetrate the clouds and ruin your skin.
Splurge on some spa gadgets
Although you should still go to a professional for regular beauty treatments, you can invest in some gadgets that can make your home feel like a spa. Consider these items:
- a massage chair
- a microneedling kit to exfoliate the skin
- a humidifier that can be an aromatherapy diffuser
- a sound machine that can complete the spa ambiance
- an eye massager.
Consult your dermatologist
If you need an annual physical exam, you also need an annual derma check-up. It’s better to be sure that your skin is healthy, just like your body is. For the start of this new decade, love your skin. Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and protect it regularly for glowing and healthy skin.
