I’m here to share my Top 10 ways to BEST DAY YOUR SKIN! Do you want to help your skin look and feel better? I hope this post will help you do just that. The number one thing for me is drinking water. Always stay hydrated. The biggest part of our body is the epidermis and it’s important to keep it moisturized and healthy.
I know everyone has different skin concerns therefore choose products that have specific solutions for your needs. Oily skin needs different products then dry skin. It could be fine lines, hydration, age spots, sun damage, big pores, acne or rosacea. You can have multiple concerns. The products and tips posted in this post work best for my skin.
I have normal to combination skin. I also have fine lines, sun damage and my skin needs hydration. I love to use cream products in the winter and use light/gel products in the summer. I follow this skincare routine morning and night and I also apply Sunscreen with a high UVA-UVB protection everyday. My two favourite sunscreens are CLARINS UV 50 Multi-Protection and Garnier Obrelle 60 for the face. Do you have a favourite sunscreen for the face? Please let me know in the comments. Face products are different then body skincare. This post is for the face, under eyes and neck.
TEN STEPS TO BEST DAY YOUR SKIN!
1. Drink Water
It’s important to stay hydrated. I make sure to drink lots of water and it doesn’t have to be boring. It can be infused water with fruits and herbs. Like mint and lemon. Orange and strawberries. You can also have tea, juice and coffee. Have fun with it and drink up!
2. Exfoliate/ Clean the Skin
I’ve been using and enjoying idc exfoliating cream and Marcelle Gentle Exfoliating cream. Both these products can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart. I also love Marcelle gentle face cleanser which I’ve finished and need to buy another one. It’s so gentle and does the job right.
I like to use toner. It feels like it makes my skin look and feel good. I really love pixi glow Tonic. I use a cotton pad and apply it to the pad and gently sweep it from the centre of my face upwards. I feel that pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic makes my skin really glow and feel good.
My favourite thing to do after I tone my skin is apply serum and let it soak in for five to ten minutes. I’ve been using the Dior serums and I really love them. I also finished and adore the No7 Serum and the CLARINS Hydra essential Serum. I feel serums are super important and give the skin the detail attention it needs. My skin’s needs are always hydration, fine lines, age spots and sun damage. Every product caters to different needs so get to know what you need for your skin.
5. Face Cream
It is important for my skin to stay hydrated all day. First thing in the morning I make sure I apply a sunscreen to protect my skin from the the UV rays. If my face cream doesn’t have protection I apply it separately. I also look for a cream that has age defying properties. My favourite cream at the moment is DIOR Capture Youth cream. I also use and love No7, ANEW Cream by AVON, CLARINS Hydra Essential, IDC and NIVEA Cream.
6. Under Eye and Neck Cream
The skin under our eyes is different from the face. It is more delicate therefore needs a light but effective cream. It’s important to get a separate cream for under the eyes and neck. My two favourite under eye creams are the ANEW Eye lift dual system and CHANEL Blue Serum Eye. I also used up my Clinique eye gel and I absolutely loved it!
I love the FIRM AND SCULPT for the neck and chest by AVON. It’s the ANEW PLATINUM CREAM. Very hydrating and great results!
7. Face Oil
I’m a big fan of face oil. I apply the oil right before bed because I find it really hydrates my skin. It doesn’t clog my pores at all. I wake up with my skin so soft and silky. My favourite skin oils are No7 Youthful Face and CLARINS Orchid oil which I’ve finished.
8. Face Masks
Face masks are super hydrating and relaxing. They can help detox and clean the skin as well. I use them two times a week. It’s a MUST in my skincare routine. Sometimes it’s a wet to dry face mask, an overnight face mask and sometimes a sheet mask. Here are some fantastic choices: AVON Beauty boost helps detox, Avon sheet masks helps hydrate and brighten. I love Dior one minute mask because it is silky and makes my skin supple and soft. One really soothing and hydrating face mask is KORRES Wild Rose. Absolutely amazing and it is gentle and soothing. A must try!
The CHANEL LE LIFT Overnight Face mask is also incredible. I’m almost finished it and highly recommend it.
Another favourite is the GARNIER SkinActive. Goes on wet and dries nicely. It can be used as a mask and cleanser. It gives a lovely cooling effect and I love how it deep cleans and leaves my skin feeling so good and refreshed.
9. Eat Good Fats & Vitamins
Food can really help our hair and skin. Good Fats like nuts, seeds and fish are very good for the complexion. Also take your multivitamins.
Getting enough sleep can really help your overall health and skin.
I hope my ten steps help you out. I would love to know what your skincare routine is like. I really enjoy trying different skincare products. I feel it’s important to try new products and give your skin a change. Some skincare might work for you and some might not.
If you do not see results after you finish a product then why continue using it? Also remember to ask if you don’t know enough about your skin. I feel it’s important to get to know your skin and give it what it needs so you can look and feel better.
