Skin Care Products Explained

February 01, 2015

What is the point in using skin care products on our skin? What do they actually do?

Well, Let me glady tell you exactly what these products do and why we need to use them regularly. Dont be put off my the long post, I swear you will learn atleast one thing from this!! 

Face wash
A gentle wash in the morning will help clean and remove build up on your skin from the few hours you spent asleep.
It prepares your skin for what's going to be put on next. 

Eye care
Hydrating this area is important because it is the thinnest part of the skin and we want to strengthen and improve circulation in the area.
This will benefit those with dark circles, puffy eyes, fine lines or wrinkles.
(Gel for puffiness and dark circles)
(Cream for fine lines and wrinkles.)

Serum
Penetrates deeper into the skin because of its chemical composition, it is more concentrated than other products. It sends messages to the lowest layer in our skin, re-educating how the cells move from the bottom to the top.
There are different serums targeting specific concerns. This is a must for everyone concerned with ageing, skin pigmentation, or dryness,

Moisturiser
This step is going to help hydrate your skin throughout the whole day.(even if your oily you need to use a moisturiser) Its important your using the right one for your skin type.
If concerned with ageing: best to have a separate day and night cream.

SPF
The last and most important step!! No matter what the weather.. The environment, car fumes, smoking, cold weather and the suns rays ALL ATTACK our skin. Spf of no lower than 15 and no higher than 50 should be used everyday. PAT on to skin. (Some moisturisers have spf in them, its up to you which way you prefer to use it)

Exfoliation
Removal of dead skin cells built up on the skin. Unclogs pores, leaves skin looking brighter. Products will work deeper and better into the skin.
This should be done 2-3 times a week.
ALL SKIN TYPES especially dry and oily skin.

Face Mask.
Firming, Nourishing and even out your complexion. There are many different face masks out there. Use x1-2 week for 15-20 mins. Make sure you are using the correct one for your skin. Clay for oily
Cream for dry and ageing.
