I’m a skincare Junkie, and I’m not alone. I’m Part of a few facebook groups that are filled with ladies and gents that share my passion for all things skin, Honestly what they don’t know about skincare is not worth knowing!
So I asked them the question, “If You Only Had One Skincare/Beauty Tip, What Would It Be?
Wear SPF (from Birth, all jokes aside here’s why you need to be wearing an SPF daily. Getting sunburn, just once every 2 years, can triple your risk of melanoma skin cancer. Sunburn doesn’t have to be raw, peeling or blistering. If your skin has gone pink or red in the sun, it’s sunburnt. For people with darker skin, it may just feel irritated, tender or itchy. SPF helps to prevent brown spots and discolouration on the skin & its one of the only products that slow’s down the development of fine lines and wrinkles, The studies have been done & the facts are in. SPF worn on a daily basis will be one of the best things you can do for your skin, ever!
The second thing to appear on the comments of the Facebook poll was Remove Your Makeup & Double Cleanse. There is nothing greater than getting home from work/school and getting in your comfy clothes and removing your makeup (& bra). Double cleanse is the cleansing method Korean women use for clear skin. It involves washing your face in two steps, first by using an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser. The first step draws out oil-based impurities such as sebum, SPF, and pollutants while the second step cleanses water-based debris such as sweat and dirt. Get started on the double cleanse to prevent breakouts and start with a clean canvas for skincare and makeup!
Don’t use Wipes. We have all done it, there is no point in lying. Wipes are bad for the skin, The environment & the stress levels of the wonderful Caroline Hirons.
Drink more water was mentioned a couple of times too. I have to say I always find my skin looks so much better the more water I drink. Water is important for new cell generation since our bodies are made up of tiny little cells it’s pretty important to keep them well hydrated and in tip-top working condition. Although I truly see a difference in my skin when I drink a lot more water I know it isn’t the only thing I need to do to keep my skin hydrated.
Ditch the Sugary foods. Limit the number of refined sugars you consume in your diet. Sugar is known to increase the ageing process, this is due to excess sugar molecules attach themselves to collagen fibres and ultimately cause them to lose their strength and flexibility
