If you want to have clear healthy skin you need to create good skincare habits! It's best to start good habits right away and to be consistent with your skincare habits. In this blog post, we're going to talk about the three skincare habits that everyone should implement into their routine!
Use an eye cream
Many people don't use an eye cream and think that it isn't an important step to a skincare routine. But this is where they are wrong. Your eyes are the first place where someone looks at you and if you have any signs of aging around your eyes, you can look older than you are. Eye bags, fine lines, and puffy eyes, can be a sign that you need to invest in a good eye cream.
Different eye creams can solve different problems. If you want an eye cream that helps with fine lines, it's best to use a retinol-based cream that can help with signs of aging. If you want to get rid of your dark eye circles, it's best to use eye creams that have brightening ingredients like vitamin C. And if you want an eye cream to get rid of any puffiness, it's best to use one that has caffeine in it!
You should be using an eye cream twice a day. Once in the morning and once at night. You need to be consistent with using an eye cream in order to see visible results! So use your eye cream every single day and don't miss a day! The skin around your eyes will thank you and you will end up having bright happy eyes.
Use sunscreen everyday!
Sunscreen is so important to use every day. Yes, even when it rains. The sun's UVA and UVB rays are harmful to our skin and we need to protect ourselves from it. Some negative outcomes from sun exposure include, prominent fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, skin cancer, and sunburns. UVA rays are responsible for acceralating the skin aging process, while UVB rays are responsible for sunburns and cancer.
It's best if you use a sunscreen that has at least SPF 30 and to reapply every 1-2 hours. You want to also make sure that you apply enough and apply around a shot glass amount to your entire body! While a teaspoon amount should be enough to cover your face! Make sure that you use a sunscreen formula that suits your skin type. If you have oilier skin then use a gel formula and if you have dry skin then use a creamier formula.
Moisturize your hands and décolleté
Everyone talks about the importance of moisturizing your face, but not many people stress the importance of moisturizing our décolleté and hands. The skin on our décolleté and neck are thin and can easily wrinkle, which is why we need to take extra care in these areas. The best way you can take care of your neck and décolleté is to apply your facial products to these areas right after you apply them to your face.
It's also important to pay attention to your hands because they can age faster compared to other parts of your body since it's regularly exposed to the environment. And as we age, our hands naturally lose volume and elasticity, and is prone to wrinkling and sagging. In order to take care of your hands, you need to invest in a great anti-aging hand cream and to apply sunscreen on it regularly. After consistent use of these two products, you should be able to stop any signs of aging.
