Does your new year’s resolution involve taking care of your skin?
Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and it’s also the organ that is exposed to the most harm. Remember those chewing gum adverts that told you the importance of taking care of your teeth – our teeth go through so much, and so does our skin. That’s why it’s important to take care of it. Taking care of our skin has so many benefits, from physical health to well-being, there and so many reasons to be kind to our skin.
Helps Keep Skin Hydrated
During the winter the cold air can have a harsh effect on our skin causing it to become dry. Just like we need to keep our body hydrated, we need to keep our skin hydrated. Think of moisturiser like a glass of water for your skin.
It’s a Form of Self-care
We all know by now how important it is to take care of ourselves and make time for self-care. There is no better way to add daily self-care to your schedule than by starting a daily skincare routine. We all deserve to have a daily pamper session and there is no better feeling than pampered skin just before you go to bed.
You Can Make It Your Own
Just like us, our skin is unique and what works for others might not work for you. Every skin type is different and different skin types require different care. Even the type of moisturiser you choose will need to be suited to your skin type. Chances are you probably won’t find the best products for your skin overnight. Experiment with different products over time and find what works for your skin.
It Boosts Confidence
We all want to feel good in our own skin. Having a skincare routine is a great way to feel good about our skin. We all enjoy a nice pamper session and it usually leaves us feeling good about ourselves. Whether it’s the glow you get after a face mask or the fresh feeling after you cleanse and exfoliate, a skincare routine can be customised to include the things that make you feel good about your skin.
Keeps Skin Healthier
Over time our skin will naturally show signs of exposure to a range of harmful components including UV rays, bacteria, and lack of sleep. Practicing a daily skincare routine helps to combat these issues and prevent them from leaving permanent damage in the future.
How Do You Create a Winter Skincare Routine?
Every season will have a different effect on our skin, so just like the seasons change, our skincare routine should change with them. From switching to an oil-based moisturiser to the type of cleanser to use. When you start your new skincare routine BE CONSISTENT!
