It is that time of year again, spring is on the way and our skin is feeling dull and tired. This is a common problem for a lot of people, we are often asked how can we make our skin glow. We have pulled together our 10 tips for healthier looking and feeling skin.
Moisturise – the number one most important thing is to use an effective moisturiser to protect and treat the skin according to skin type and conditions. Always follow a set procedure – morning and evening.
Be Consistent – Always use the same product range religiously day and night allowing the skin to be treated correctly. All products therefore working together effectively to allow healthier looking skin. Using a mixture of different products can cause skin reactions and work against each other.
Exfoliate – It is also essential to exfoliate regularly to aid the removal of dead skin cells on the surface and to allow the full penetration of creams more effectively.
Protect – Ensure you always protect the skin against sun damage, extreme weathers and ultra violet rays. It is essential to have sun protection of 15 and above to protect.
Specialist – Everyone concerned with accelerated skin ageing should use a separate eye and neck cream as both these areas are made up of fine delicate skins.
Steam – At least once/ twice a week try to have a bath whilst wearing a suitable face mask as the steam from the hot water will allow the pores to open wider and this will act as a deeper penetration method for the mask to enter the deeper layers of the skin and therefore the result will be more successful for the skin.
Sleep – Get plenty of sleep-at least 8 hours of restful sleep will allow the skin to rest and recover from the day.
Do Not Squeeze – Avoid squeezing breakouts- this can leave marks on the skin unnecessarily and may spread infection if present.
Drinking and Smoking – Avoid smoking and alcohol
Cut down on… – Avoid too many sugary or fatty foods.
