For our skin, winter is the harshest season. The extremely cold temperatures can make our skin tight, dry and sad, leaving us looking worn out before the year has even properly begun.
As explained in our previous post, New Year, New Skincare Routine, many a New Year’s Resolution will have been to implement a new routine to combat the bitter weather, but, with such a wide range of options available, sometimes it can be a struggle knowing where to start.
The Benefits of a Regular Skin Routine
When it comes to our skin, we only get one lot, so it is incredibly important that we take care of it. By using a regular routine, you can:
- Appear more youthful
- Achieve a desirable healthy glow
- Reduce wrinkles
- Help with any existing acne or acne scars
- Have beautiful, clean skin
- Encourage your skin to regenerate more effectively
All of these will give you peace of mind that you are doing your best for your skin, and will help you avoid seeking more invasive procedures in the future.
The word ‘oil’ can strike fear into the individual's mind, especially if you already have an oily skin type.
But fear not! Did you know that certain oils can help regulate your skin oil production, reducing the amount that your skin generates, and benefitting your complexion long term?
Whether you have dry, combination, sensitive, oily, or a normal skin type, finding the right oil for you can comfort your skin, boost its elasticity, and create a smooth, soft surface.
