Is your skin care routine all-inclusive? When looking at creating and honing in on your skin care routine, it’s important to make sure your routine is something that’s not just focusing on one element of your skin’s needs. Our skin has a lot of needs, and requires different things to keep healthy and youthful. We want you to start to think moisture, protection and prevention when it comes to your skin care routine. Remember your skin is the largest organ in your body, which means you need to make sure that your skin care routine is suiting the fact that it is an organ.
Ok, so to kick things off let’s talk a bit about moisture. Think you can skip your moisturizing step in your skin care routine? It’s time to take that step much more seriously. Regardless of your skin type, all of us need moisture in our skin. As we go throughout our days, our skin is exposed to different elements that can draw moisture out of our skin. But the truth is, our skin needs and craves moisture. Without skin that’s well moisturized you’re likely to start to develop a lot of dryness in your skin, your skin won’t be functioning properly because of its lack of moisture and you will likely notice signs of aging appearing much more rapidly. Make sure that your skin care routine is always consisting of moisturizing steps, and it’s important to make sure that the products you use in your skin care routine are going to be adding great moisture to your skin.
As we mentioned above, our skin is exposed to a lot of different elements throughout the day. We know this, and we also know our skin is an organ. What does that tell us? We need to take protection matters into our own hands. When it comes to protecting your skin, the main focus should be to protect it from skin cancer along with any other health struggles. How can you do this? For starters, making sure that you’re not leaving the house without SPF is essential. In addition to SPF daily, using products that are designed for your skin’s type, free of any harmful ingredients, and being consistent with your skin care routine. Many experts suggest that our skin is exposed to a lot of free radicals throughout the day, free radicals have been found to cause cancer and other skin concerns. The best way to protect yourself from those elements is to make sure you cleanse your skin every night before bed.
Let’s face it, we’re all trying to hold off the aging process for as long as possible. But while we don’t want to have signs of aging appear on our skin, your skin care routine needs to be helping with that prevention in order to actually achieve it. Being consistent with a healthy skin care routine, and sun protection are two of the most important factors in preventing aging. Of course, using quality skin care products that have great anti-aging ingredients is also going to be essential. Oh, and…don’t forget to make sure you’re drinking a lot of water.
