Skincare Tips And Products While At Home
A lot of us would agree that a skincare routine is a
commitment and no matter what are the circumstances are we are highly
encouraged to take care of our skin
by using products
that work to address our skin
issues and concerns. What more with the whole pandemic issue, there’s more time
for us to look up and find better, effective products and tips that will work well with our skin. Here’s how, as
recommended by dermatologists
First things first, despite we are urged to stay at home at all times, we still need to use sunscreen consistently every day? It’s a common misconception that sunscreen should be reserved for outdoors and in the long run, doing so, your skin will age quicker than it needed. UV rays are still able to penetrate into the house. You can either apply sunscreen or a moisturizer with sunscreen benefits (Dr Q - Sunscreen White Oil Free With SPF 100 and be sure to apply every 3-4 hours.
If you’re still with the basic, three-step skincare products of cleanser,
and moisturizer, now is the time to step up the ante by adding intensive
products for your skin.
For a start, we highly recommend that you include a serum
and since there’s a lot of choices of serum
in the market, choose one with vitamin C as the key ingredient, such as this
one from Clarins Clarins
Bright Plus Serum. Why? It’s the most basic serum
and yet powerful enough to cover most of our skin issues (wrinkles,
spots, scars, acne breakouts, dull skin, and pigmentations), what more
preventing them from happening on the first place
Plus, more time at home meaning you have more time to be intentional with the food that you eat - and for your skin, include plenty of skin-friendly foods to deeply cleanse your skin. That includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, protein, and healthy fats (omega-3 from fish is superb for your skin) that will improve your skin’s structure starting from the outer surface and right into your skin.
Now that we spend a lot of time at home, treating the skin with face masks
should be easier (or should we say, pampering) and this step is highly
recommended by the experts. Masks are
quick solutions to treat your skin
intensively, by infusing active ingredients into the skin according to the
results that you want for your skin.
Whether it’s for brightening Garnier
Skin Active Fresh Mix Tissue Mask Vitamin C - Energises & Illuminates,
El Hana Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask, or anti-aging Beaut
& Beauty Ozone Firming Mask, there are a variety of masks that
you can use, twice a week to improve the skin.
Apart from face
masks, treating yourself with facial
treatments is possible now that we are staying at home and getting the
required products online is just an app away. A simple chemical peel to deeply
exfoliate the skin, deep massages with a face roller Rio
60 Second Face Lift Facial Toner Plus, or perhaps using at-home light
therapy devices will surely maintain the outlook and well-being of your skin
