Why Your Skin Care Routine is Important

1. Our skin sheds itself daily.
You may think your skin is healthy today, but did you know your skin cells shed just about every minute of every day? This means the healthy skin you have today will be shedding tomorrow, so if you don’t care for it now your skin could look dull and lifeless and less than perfect skin. Isn’t that a good reason to start a daily skin care routine?

2. Your skin type
Perhaps you have a friend who doesn’t have a skin care routine and her skin looks great. Well that is great for her, but did you know that all skin types are different? Because of this, your skin may require more care than the next persons. For this reason a daily skin care routine is important. choose the right skin care for your skin type.

3. Beautiful skin for a life
If you want gorgeous skin 30 years from now, the choices you make today will help that happen. Beautiful skin is a lifelong process, and developing a daily skin care routine today can help you keep beautiful skin for the future. At the same time, negative skin care routines now can harm your skin for the future.

4. Prevention is easier.
Preventing potential skin problems now is easier than trying to fix skin issues in the future. Taking the time to look after your skin daily takes less time than having cosmetic work or pay for a dermatologists skin issues as a result of neglect down the line.remember prevention is easier than cure.

5. A skin care routine saves you money and future cost
When you take care of your skin health, you avoid issues down the line that can be costly. If you don’t want to deal with acne scars, deep wrinkles, skin discoloration, or other skin issues, a skin care routine now can prevent trips to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon in the future to address these issues.

6. Look good feel better
Having clean and clear skin can help boost your confidence and keep you looking your best! Your face is the first part of you people look at so go forward with your best face forward. A daily skin care routine can help you do this, your makeup will never sit fresh and flawless without well looked after skin.

7. A skin care routine can help establish other healthy routines.
Add a skin care routine to your other healthy living routines so you can develop better health habits all around like teeth and hair care. Try before you buy and don’t be shy asking for samples so you know you are happy with the purchase.

Always use a moisturizer before primer as it makes your priming even, Bobbi browns moisturizers has primer in and so does embryolisse.

Hydrate your skin

HYDRATION INSIDE AND OUT!!  lack of humidity during the winter months, skin can easily become dehydrated. Once that happens, many concerns could become apparent like uneven texture, redness and breakouts. Adding a hydrator to your daily skincare routine prevents skin dehydration.” dont forget we also need to drink water in the winter.

Hydrators, like cyto luxe hydration, are lighter than a moisturizer and penetrate further into the skin. Use 3-4 drops before you moisturize.

If your skin has a tendency to dry out midday, rehydrate with a spritz of a hydrating mist. Misting both refreshes the skin and revives your makeup. Look for ingredients like Sodium Hyaluronate and Deuterium Oxide.

Try a facial oil

Oil is a scary word in the beauty industry, skin-healthy oils can work wonders. While hydrators boost water content in your skin, facial oils regulate your skin’s oil production. Oil can be used on dry or oily skin to soften and rejuvenate. not just oily skin.  I would highly recommend mixing a face oil with your favorite moisturizer. “Adding a few drops of a facial oil to your moisturizer will nourish and condition the skin, also give you an additional protective layer against the harsher climate.” wind and rain as well as sun and especially if you are planning to go skiing protect your face against the uv light and wear wrap around shades to protect your eyes.

While you’re at it, apply the oil to your cuticles for soft hands and do not forget your neck…

Wear lip balm through out the day …

After you brush your teeth in the morning, apply a light layer of lip balm Allow it to sink in before you apply your makeup. This will help your lips stay supple, even when using matte lipsticks.

Before you go to bed, coat your lips with a nourishing lip balm so your lips don’t dry out overnight. Need something heavy duty? for extremely chapped skin.


Many people experience seasonal skin sensitivity brought on by the change of seasons. Irritable skin needs a little extra TLC, so look for products labeled “gentle” or “sensitive” Calming, anti-inflammatory ingredients like Aloe and cucumber are good to look out for.

Always moisturize your skin twice daily! Drink Up! It’s obvious that keeping your body hydrated is crucial to your skin looking great. Water is key to getting rid of waste and toxins, which are the main cause of dull skin. Drinking up, though, doesn’t have to be boring. Add frozen berries to your glass for a fruity-twist or cucumber or slices for a spa-like treat. Plus, fruits, vegetables and tea are water-dense, so snack and drink up!

Limit the caffeine and junk food and moisturize your skin twice a day and a weekly mask keeps the freshness with a good daily cleanse.

It’s always good to have tips and tricks on beauty knowledge, I’m a believer in making the most of ourself with out surgery or spending a fortune

  • For many years I couldn’t afford many products so I either made my own or bought what was on offer. I always purchased a cleanser, morturiser and mascara, Now I buy products that work regardless of if it’s price tag from  £1 – £100 as long as it does what it says on the tin, and use it sparingly on you face to avoid  too much overload of products that can cause congestion or spots.
  • I like to see the  new brands with natural ingredients coming onto the market 🌻 they have a innocent 😇  feel to them with simple packaging and small price tag.
  • My advise to anyone would be to try before you buy ❤️ and read what is in the product before purchasing, don’t be sold by a sales pitch when buying cosmetics 😊
