What is a skincare regimen – Summarized

A skincare regimen is the things that you do everyday to keep your skin looking beautiful and healthy. It includes:

 Cleansing

Cleansing is the act of washing your face using a Face Cleanser: usually a soapy gel product with cleaning properties adapted especially for the skin, it helps to remove dirt, bacteria and unclog your pores. You want to wash your face with warm water (not cold, not hot) gently, and remove the cleanser with warm water as well. Being gentle with your skin is especially important, because your face is delicate and the gentler you treat it, the better it will look. The usual recommendation is to do it in the morning and in the evening, because if you go to bed with makeup on your face, your pores can get clogged and your overall appearance can be affected. Part of keeping your skin clean and beautiful is keeping your pillow and sheets clean too, because your skin will be in contact with them while you sleep.

Toning

Toning is basically the act of refining the Cleansing. You can tone your skin by applying a liquid product named Toner after you wash and dry your face using a cotton ball. Remember you must wash your face gently? Well, sometimes you may be tempted to go harder on it in order to “deep cleanse”, but that would be a mistake… that’s precisely the Toner’s job, to deep-clean without treating your skin badly. To tone your skin, and give your face that gentle deep cleansing, and keeping it radiant and pure, get your Toner by clicking here!

Exfoliation

Exfoliating is basically the act of carefully scrubbing your skin in order to cleanse the skin, therefore, this could be considered part of the Cleansing habits, however, exfoliation shouldn’t be done very frecuently, once every two weeks should be fine, but no more than that, because too much exfoliation can make your skin sensitive and hurt more than help; besides, if you’ve been cleaning your face day and night, and toning it, you shouldn’t really need exfoliating more than once a month. For this, you can simply use a scrubber or an exfoliating cleanser, which you apply by softly massaging your face (avoiding the area surrounding your eye) for about a minute and then remove with warm (not hot, not cold) water or a damp cloth.

Moisturizing

Moisturizing is basically hydrating, protecting and lubricating your skin, the product you need to moisturize your skin is the “most famous” skincare product, the moisturizer, typically simply called face cream. Most creams are moisturizers, they are used to mainly keep your face from drying. Moisturizers are applied after cleaning your face and after the toner, but before the sun-screen. Buy a Moisturizer for your specific skin type clicking here.

Sun-protection

This is a very important daily habit you must acquire if you want to take care of your skin. Don’t leave the sun-protection only for sunny days. UV rays are very damaging for you skin, therefore, this is definitely part of a complete skincare regimen. It should be applied after applying the moisturizer. The “power” of protection is expresses with the letters SPF, the higher the number, the stronger the sun-protection. A 25-30 SPF is fine, more  than that isn’t necessary unless you have sensitive skin or you are too expossed to the sun due to your specific activities. Another thing that I have to mention here is that the light emitted by your computer screen and your cellphone is very harmful for your skin too. If you spend a lot of time in front of the computer screen or the cellphone, definitely you need a sun-protection product if you want to have a radiant, glowy and beautiful skin. Take action and get one here!

Moisturizing + Sun-protection + Coverage= one product 

I have to say from the beginning that I love these products, because they are really practical, they are very easy to use, make your life easier, gives your face a very natural looking glow and coverage, all in one single product. You can cover the Moisturizing, the Sun-protection part and apply makeup in 1-2 minutes. These products are Tinted Sunscreens, BB Creams and CC Creams. These three products offer Moisturizing, Sun-Protection and coverage, all in one. In my opinion, there isn’t much of a difference between these three products, but any of the three is great. Get your own Tinted Sunscreen here.  Get your own BB Cream here and/or your CC Cream here!

Masks

A mask is a blend of ingredients you apply on your face, leave for 10-15 minutes and then remove. The purpose of a mask is treating your specific skin needs directly, for example if you have a dry skin, an avocado mask could be applied on your face, left for 10-15 minutes and then removed with warm water and/or a damp cloth. A mask can be applied once a week. A mask is applied after cleaning and drying your face and before you apply the toner and the moisturizer. Buy a face mask specificly for you skin needs by clicking here!

Serums

A serum, in a few words, is a concentrate, a power-punch. It’s a concentrated formula that targets your specific issues. It is applied after the toner and before the moisturizer. I would recommend using a Vitamin C serum to greatly boost the glow of your skin and to boost the protective power of your sunscreen/BB Cream/CC Cream. There are serums for every specific need of your skin, although I really recommend a Vitamin C Serum. Get your own serum by clicking here!

Eye Creams

The skin around your eyes are very sensitive and require especial attention because it is an area that easily can manifest signs of aging if not treated nicely. You should always touch and wash this part of your skin very softly. Eye creams are creams formulated specifically to give your skin in this area a fresh look, helping to prevent premature signs of aging and also helping with dark circles. I personally believe that using a good eye cream really makes a difference in your looks! Click here to get your own eye cream and start taking care of this important area of your skin!

Lip balm/Lip moisturizer

Just like with the skin around your eyes, your lips are more sensitive than the rest of your face. Your lips must be taken care of by cleaning them very softly and touched with care just like with the area around your eyes. You need a specific type of moisture for your lips in order to protect them and keep them moist, soft and beautiful. You can use a lip balm just for that. I would recommend one that adds shine to your lips and if it contains sun-protection, the better. A good idea, in my opinion, would be to get a lipstick that contains moisturizing properties and sun-protection at the same time, just like tinted moisturizers, BB creams or CC creams do with the rest of your face, but in this case, for your lips. Take care of your lips after getting your own lip balm clicking here!

Conclusion

A skincare regimen is a series of habits that help your skin look its best. It includes: Cleansing, Exfoliation, Toning, Moisturizing, Sun-Protection, Serums and Masks. The skin around the area of your eyes and lips is particularly sensitive and require especial care. If you apply all the products, this would be the order: Cleanser>Toner>Serum>Moisturizer>Eye Cream>Sun-Protection and/or SPF Tinted Moiturizer, BB Cream or CC Cream)>Lip Balm/Lip Moisturizer.

How to reduce signs of aging – The best skincare tip

Wrinkles, dull skin, acne, dry skin, redness appear for different reasons, but long story short: it is caused mainly by inflammation of the skin and damage caused to the cells. Eating junk food, smoking, drinking alcohol, poor sleep quality, not drinking enough water, are involved… but there is one thing that is even worse than all of those bad habits mentioned, and that is… not protecting your face from the sun and from the light emitted by devices’ screens.

We aren’t aware of how much the sun light affect our skin appearance, but the truth is maybe this is reason number one your skin does not look as good as you would like it. Who would have thought? More than eating unhealthy, more than poor quality sleeping, more than drinking too little water.

If you protect your skin from the sun and from the light emitted by computers and cellphones, your skin will look more radiant, glowy, soft, and you’ll prevent or even improve premature wrinkling.

Sun UV rays and the blue light from computer and cellphone screens damage your skin

You may not believe it, but the sun and blue light (the light emitted by screens) damage your skin… and guess what part of your body receives the most damage?… Yes, you guessed it… Your face! See, this is very inconvenient, because your face is the part of your body by which everybody recognizes you! Basically, your face is you! And if it is constantly receiving damage, your skin will look dull, lifeless, red, dry (or oily), and wrinkles will appear faster than they should, especially in the areas around your eyes. Not good. Not good at all.

You don’t need to stop using technology or hide from the sun like a vampire, just use products with sun protection.

That shouldn’t be hard at all,  there are many products these days that offer an excellent protection for your skin. There are many BB creams, CC creams, tinted moisturizers, liquid makeup foundation, cream makeup foundation, powder makeup compacts, eye creams and even lipsticks that offer sun protection.

If you are the type of person that prefers to use all-in-one-products, you can opt for BB creams, CC creams or tinted moisturizers, since they offer skincare benefits, such as moisture, coverage, powerful antioxidants and sun protection, all in one product. Or, you can use a sunscreen lotion and then apply makeup over it.

What makes a good sun-protection product

In essence, as you can see, there’s pretty much every imaginable product out there these days, and many of them contain sun protection, but you need to recognize what to look for, and, of course, take into consideration your individual needs. I’d suggest you to get the type of product (or products) you usually use or need for your individual skin type and needs, but now choose the ones that have the sun protection factor over those that don’t.

Example, if you have a sensitive skin and usually buy a moisturizer made for sensitive skins, now simply choose a product that contains sun protection AND properties to improve your sensitive skin -it could be labeled as Sensitive skin +30 spf-. These days you can find products for very specific needs and expectations. In my opinion, choosing the right products can save you a lot of time, will make your life easier and it’s better to use a well-blended product that posseses several properties over two or three products that you will later have to layer over one another.

What makes a good sun-protection product

Essentially, what you are looking for is a broad spectrum protection product, usually represented by the letters SPF. The higher the number, the more protection you get, example +30 SPF, +50 SPF, etc. However, don’t try to get the highest number, since it isn’t necessary,+30 will work just fine. Take into consideration that the highest the SPF, the whiter your face will look, and you don’t want to look un-natural. As I said, +30 SPF is fine, a little more won’t hurt, but in my opinion is unnecessary; choose the one you think is fine for you, though, taking into consideration how much exposure to the sun or to blue light you get on a daily basis and how sensitive your skin is, maybe in this case you a little higher SPF would be just fine.

Another thing to consider are the sun-protection ingredients. You want to go for mineral sun-protection products over chemical ones, since the chemical ones can be toxic -an usually oily-. Mineral ingredients usually include Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide.

Taking extra care of the skin around your eyes will reduce dramatically the appearance of signs of age

The skin around your eyes is especially sensitive to damage and reflects how old or young you look more than any other part of your face. Remember the saying “the eyes are the windows to the soul”? Well, the care you give to your eye contour can make you or break you. Eye contour that is neglected will make you look tired, and wrinkles can start to appear more easily. An eye contour that has been taken care of will make you look fresh and beautiful, that’s for sure. So, if you ask me, I think investing in a good eye cream is an intelligent idea!

Click here if you want to take a look at some eye creams you might like.

Make sure to you treat yourself as royalty when it comes to your skin surrounding your eyes, pamper it, avoid, for example, applying too much stress on your eye contour while applying makeup, you shouldn’t rub your skin or scratch it in this area; when you apply any product on it, do it softly and with slowly. I can’t stress enough how delicate it is and how well it can pay if you treat this area of your skin nicely.

Another way to protect and take extra care of the skin around your eyes is wearing sunglasses.

Maybe you’ve wondered if there is any practical use of sunglasses besides making you look cool, well, there actually is, as I mentioned before, the area around your skin is very important, not just because it is sensitive, also because it’s the area that most people will notice. Whenever you talk to someone, that person will look you in the eyes -unless you don’t look at people in the eyes when you talk to them, but that looks wierd- and the immediate impression they’ll get about the appearance of your skin will be that of the skin around your eyes.

Look at any person you consider has a good aspect in general and you’ll notice that a large part of that impression you get from them comes due the fact that they have a fresh look in their eyes and a good aspect in the skin around their eyes. Now think of the opposite, a tired aspect in a person, you’ll notice, comes in large part due the fact that they have neglected the aspect of their eyes and the skin around them. Wearing protective eyeglasses when using the computer -or the cellphone- and sunglasses when exposed to the sun, will keep you protected and greatly benefit your looks!!!

Wearing a hat is another way to protect your skin from the UV sun rays

Remember, when your hair and your skin are exposed to the UV sun rays, they are being exposed to premature aging. Wearing a hat is obviously a good idea, for the simple fact that it protects your face from the sun.

Conclusion

If you want to look younger, the fastest route is avoiding inflammation of your skin, especially the skin in your face. It would be best if you make the use of sun protection part of your daily skincare habits, remember this is perhaps the most important element of your skincare routine, and don’t reserve it’s use exclusively for sunny days; remember that nowadays, many products allow you to cover imperfections, wrinkles and fine lines while giving sun protection at the same time.

Wearing sunglasses when exposed to the sun -and protective eyeglasses- when exposed to blue light is also a great idea. Last but not least, using a high quality eye cream and pampering your eye contour will keep your face looking young, fresh and beautiful.

Obviously, this is my personal opinion, but I really think you’re going to love it or at least will give you a good option and an idea of what to look for.

Electrolytes for your skin / Super fresh deep hydration

If super hydration is what you want for your skin, this moisturizer will give it to you; this contains, literally, mineral electrolytes that will hydrate your skin and make your skin so much lively.

This formula has a “cooling” effect that feels really “cool” 🙂  it feels really fresh and energizing! 🙂

Some moisturizers feel heavy, oily, but this one is super light and fresh! It really is electrolytes for your skin.

SPF Protection / UV rays speeds up signs of aging

I’ve heard several dermatologists say that sun protection is perhaps the most important thing to consider when it comes to having a beautiful skin.

Once I heard one say: “Who are the women with the healthiest skin? Nuns, because they have so little sun exposure”. So, it seems like many experts agree on this one.

Sun exposure damages your skin, it worsens acne, accelarates aging, dries, inflammates and oxydates your skin.

With this in mind, consider that this cream will keep your skin protected from signs of aging, inflamation, oxidation, dark spots, wrinkles, even from acne.

Important, right? This sun protection factor, broad-spectrum SPF 30, will contribute to improve your skin condition in general over time.

Actually, if you could choose only one product to use for the rest of your life, in my opinion, it would definitely be sunscreen. Now, the good news is that you can have sun protection added to a moisturizer that also gives you a beautiful sheer coverage with satin texture.

Soothing, fresh, super light, water-based

Its fresh kind of “cooling” texture will give your face a dimension difficult to explain, but will make it plump and healthy, even youthful. I believe that one should love oneself, I firmly believe that looking good is a sign of self love and self-esteem. Treating your skin nicely will be perceived by people in indirect ways. This moisturizer will pamper your skin, refresh it and sooth it.

The formula is lightweight, not heavy at all, which will make it feel more comfortable, fresh and super easy to wear.

It is also water-based and free of mineral oil.

Flawless skin included 🙂

Especially when it comes to getting a dewy-glowy look, a flawless skin is a must, but don’t worry, it is very easily achievable, since this moisturizer will give you a natural-looking type of “foundation”. Even if you are a man, you can use it and nobody will think you are wearing any makeup, the tone of your face will look uniform and flawless, hiding and healing any flaws you may have in your face, including scars, pimples, dark spots, etc.

The formula is lightweight and blends so easily and doesn’t require any special tools to be applied, just apply it as you would apply any moisturizer.
