How to Start Your Year Off With The Best Skincare Routine
Is your skincare routine getting old and not really doing much for your skin? You can spice it up going into the new year with a new routine filled with products that will hydrate and brighten your skin all day long. Once you set up a steady routine that you can do twice a day, your skin will thank you!
Let’s start with a morning routine that will start your skin fresh and clean for the day. When you first wake up it is essential that you use a cleanser or face wash to get rid of any dirt or grease that may be on your face. Depending on your skin type, you may have a cleanser that works best with your skin.
The next step after you cleanse your face is to apply a toner to your face. Toners are helpful for people with oily skin or skin that is prone to acne. It aids as an extra cleanser to get rid of extra makeup or other residues that might still be in your skin. Try to avoid toners with ingredients such as ethanol, denatured alcohol, and isopropyl alcohol, which are commonly found in toners.
The last step of the morning routine would be to use a moisturizer that contains SPF in it. Moisturizers are essential to hydrating your skin, but the SPF is a very important factor in protecting your skin from cancer and the harmful rays from the sun.
The nighttime routine isn’t too different from the morning routine, but it differs in a few important ways. The cleanser and toner part of the routine stay the same, but then you’ll add in an antioxidant serum. Try to look for an antioxidant serum that contains vitamin C, and other natural ingredients such as peppermint and rosemary. The serum is very helpful when it comes to the aging of your skin.
Then, the next step is to moisturize your face again, which can be with the same moisturizer that contains the SPF, or one without since you won’t be out in the sun. The last step to this routine would be to use a new product called Vermilion Strips. Vermilion Strips are are a subdermal technology discovery that offer a non-invasive way to increase the fullness of lips. You can place a strip under either your upper or lower lip to help plump up your lips. You can put them in while going about your whole skin care routine, or put them in after for around 10-30 minutes a day.
Switching up your skincare routine can help refresh and hydrate your skin. What a great way to ring in the new year with beautiful skin!
