How To Improve Your Skincare in 2021
With the start of another year, it’s time again to set out some goals and resolutions for the coming months. While travelling or trying out new restaurants won’t be an option anytime soon, another formidable goal is to improve your skincare routine! By making your skin and self-care a priority, you will look and feel better in no time. Unsure of where to start in your skincare journey? Or maybe you’re not sure what to add to your already settled routine? No problem! We’ve laid out five simple ways to improve your skincare in 2021.
Don’t Neglect Your Serum
A facial serum can be a great way to kick your skincare routine into high gear! With a variety of options on the market, you can find the perfect serum for your skin. From anti-aging to hydrating, serums work best when applied after you’ve used your cleanser, but before you apply any moisturiser. When used consistently, serums can help fight skin issues like fine lines, acne, and discoloration. In addition, serums can also soothe sensitive skin and protect your face and neck from free radicals and future damage. Finally, since serums have a high concentration of active ingredients, they more easily penetrate the skin’s surface and can deliver visible results faster than other products.
Choose Dermaplaning to Exfoliate
Dermaplaning is the simple skincare addition that can have you looking your best. This specific form of exfoliation helps remove dead, dull skin that sits on the surface of your face. It also removes peach fuzz, which helps give your makeup a flawless finish. The amazing thing is that you can do this at home with the Hollywood Browzer, so there is no need to way for salons to reopen. The Browzer helps you dermaplane without any pain, redness, or irritation. For the very first use, your skin will go from dull to vibrant and glowing.
Get Your Beauty Sleep
Even with the best skin care products in the world at your disposal, you can’t make up for lost sleep. That’s why it’s recommended that you get between 7 and 9 hours of it each night. Without proper amounts of sleep, you’re more susceptible to premature skin aging and unsightly dark circles under your eyes. In addition, a good night’s rest can help your overall skin tone since this is the time your body uses to repair itself from the stress of the day. Want to take things a step further? Use silk pillowcases! Not only do they help prevent the appearance of fine lines, but they can keep your hair from becoming excessively frizzy. It’s a win win!
Always Cleanse Your Skin
Cleansing your skin should be a no-brainer when it comes to skincare, but did you know you should be cleaning your face even if you didn’t wear makeup that day?
This is because, while you don’t have makeup to remove, your face has come in contact with all sorts of other things throughout the day. From sweat to dirt (and even air pollution!), your skin deals with a lot. Cleansing makes sure your skin is fresh and free of excess oil. If you’re looking to make the cleansing step of your routine even better, our Microfibre Cleansing Pads will do just that.
Not only are they gentle on your skin, but they can remove the toughest makeup, including waterproof mascara. On top of that, they’re machine washable, reusable, and eco-friendly.
Don’t Forget Your Neck
While your face is important, your neck should receive much of the same care as its counterpart. Make a point to apply products, such as moisturisers and sunscreens, to your neck in addition to your face, and not merely as an afterthought. By treating your neck like an extension of your face, you’ll be less likely to experience signs of premature aging and wrinkles.
When the time comes to embark on a New Year, there can be a lot of external pressure to change yourself, overhaul your whole life, and be a better person no matter how hard that seems (or how cold it is outside - we’ll be skipping the 5am run, thanks), but we’re here to remind...Read more
