Have you ever looked at someone and thought wow what incredible skin?! Same here! So, genetics aside, we decided to delve into the habits of people with great skin and we’re sharing them with you...
They avoid harsh cleansers and scrubs
Harsh cleansers and scrubs can cause irritation, dryness and impair your skin barrier too (causing sensitivities). So, choose nourishing and hydrating cleansers and scrubs, or try a chemical exfoliant instead (like our Canvas: Resurfacing AHA & BHA Treatment).
They cleanse their skin twice daily
And they even double cleanse at night! Make time to put yourself first - wash your face when you jump out of bed in the morning, and then double cleanse before you sleep at night. Double cleansing really washes away any SPF, makeup and oil on your skin from the day that was. Then, apply your serums and moisturisers immediately cleansing. If you exercise and work up a sweat, remember to give your face a cleanse afterward to remove any bacteria and pollutants. Clarity: Nourishing Dual-Phase Cleanser is gentle enough for a double cleanse
They don’t leave the house without SPF!
Prevent damage from ultraviolet rays and apply sunscreen as the final step in your morning routine, every day – and don’t forget to reapply!
They’re conscious of stress
We know, we say it a lot! But it’s for good reason... because it really does affect skin in a big way, so working on stress management techniques will help to keep cortisol levels down and hormones in check, avoiding skin flare ups.
They find a skincare routine that works for them
And they stick to it! So, align your skin type with your skin goals to develop your best routine. Then stick with it! It takes time for skin to adjust to products and for results to be seen, so when you find a routine that feels good, keep at it, and reap the rewards of great skin. Slow and steady really is the winner here!
They hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Your skin is your largest organ, so take care of it. Our bodies lose large amounts of water every day, so if it’s not replaced, your skin (among other things!) can suffer. Drinking water helps flush toxins from the body and keeps your complexion clear and glowing.
They don’t stop at their face
And finally, great skin isn’t contained to just our face, so remember to make time for your body too. A good bath sesh is a must for relaxing and taking time out but bump up the good skin factor by adding in a moisturising oil to your bath while you soak and try to keep the temp nice and warm (instead of hot) to avoid your skin becoming stripped and dry. Keep your body skin smooth and supple by popping on a soothing body lotion, like Sublime: Replenishing Hemp & Probiotic Lotion once you’re out, and you’re sorted from top to toe!
