Why You Should Do This To Your Daily Beauty Routine
Having a well-crafted beauty routine can save you time and result in younger-looking skin. To get the most out of your routine, it takes care and consideration.
These are the main steps you should keep in mind to sort through all the noise:
STICKING TO THE BASICS: The first step in repairing and renewing the skin is to get a good night’s rest. Cells are more active during the night time, which is when the anti-aging benefits have a greater impact. Another beauty basic is to wash your pillowcase every two to four days to prevent skin irritation or infection. It goes without saying but drinking eight glasses of water a day will make your skin glow and look more radiant.
CLEANSING IN THE MORNING: Germs from your pillowcases can move to your face as you sleep and bacteria from your saliva and oils from your hair are easily transferred to your skin. A quick rinse in the morning allows for the best absorption of the other beauty products you will apply.
WASHING YOUR FACE IN THE EVENING: Facial skin that is not regularly cleansed is more likely to get clogged pored, which causes acne. However, over-washing can lead to irritation and a lack of moisture. The rule is to use common sense and wash your face after a workout, in the morning and before bed. Washing your face helps to clear pores, remove oil from your skin and prevent wrinkles. Make washing your face a priority in your daily routine.
TURNING DOWN WATER TEMPERATURE: Extreme temperatures such as hot and steamy showers can cause dilation of blood vessels and strip the oil barrier of the skin. When to know if your water is too warm? If your skin is red after a shower, your water is too hot. Frequent hot showers can lead to itchy skin and can damage it, so turn the temperature down!
If you happen to have dry skin, use body oil to nourish your skin and promote elasticity. Body oil absorbs quicker and deeper than most lotions. Bring your body oil anywhere and spread it throughout the day with your Distinct Scent spray.
EXFOLIATING ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK: Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers few new cells below. This helps your moisturizing products to work more efficiently and leave your skin looking fresh.
USING A NEW TOWEL REGULARLY: It can be a pain but experts say that reusing the same towels over and over again can spread bacteria. As a general rule, launder your bath towel at least once a week and your washcloth a couple times a week.
