The Importance of a Good Skincare Routine
The largest barrier between the external environment and your body is your skin. It protects you from the sun, dirt, and other environmental factors, and we take care of it the least. Therefore, maintaining a good skincare routine is crucial to keeping it healthy. However, you might think you do not have time for it, not sure how many products you need to use, which brands formulate the quality products, where to start, and what to keep building a skincare routine. So let us make things easier for you. Maintaining a good skincare routine is not as complex as you think. Here are some tips and tricks that can keep your skin looking healthy and happy.
The first step of the skincare routine for every skin type is washing your face with a good quality cleanser that helps to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. It should be gentle enough not to strip away the natural oils of the skin and powerful enough to remove the junk from pores.
When it comes to choosing the right cleanser for your skin type, there is no one size fits all. Therefore, it is important to ensure that you use a product suitable for your skin type. For example, choose a gentle hydrating formula for dry or sensitive skin. On the other hand, for oily and acne-prone skin, an oil-free cleanser is the best. Finally, avoid alcohol-based or sulcate-containing cleaners, as they can cause irritation and redness. The ZO skin health has a good range of cleansers suitable for different skin types. Their gentle cleanser includes oat amino acids and botanical extracts; exfoliating cleanser has salicylic acid that is highly effective for oily and acne-prone skin, hydrating cleanser comes with hyaluronic acid to soothe the dry and irritated skin.
Applying a toner after cleansing your face helps to remove the residual makeup and dirt on your face. In addition, it helps to calm and soften your skin. Toners contain ingredients that replenish the skin with nutrients and maintain its pH. Like the cleanser, it should be chosen according to your skin type. For example, ZO skin health has formulated complexion renewal pads with glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and botanical extracts to remove the excess oil and pore-clogging debris. Oil control pads acne treatment is an ideal toner for people suffering from some bad acne. ZO skin health has a calming toner for dry and sensitive skin, containing hyaluronic acid and panthenol to soothe the dry patches and rash.
A moisturiser is an absolute must for any routine. After cleansing and toning, you need to balance and protect your skin. There is a wide variety of moisturisers available on the market. Always check the label to ensure you are putting the quality ingredients on your face. The lightweight and oil-free formula are suitable for oily and acne-prone skin.
In contrast, dry and sensitive skin needs some intense moisturisation to strengthen its skin barrier and prevent moisture loss. So here we are again recommending the ZO skin health moisturisers. They have a perfect balance of ingredients that every skin type need to stay healthy.
Protecting Your Skin with a Sunscreen
Some moisturisers come with an SPF. If yours has an SPF of less than 30, you should layer it with a good quality sunscreen. It is crucial to protect you against the damaging effects of UV rays. ZO skin health offers a wide variety of sunscreens recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. In addition, you may find makeup primers with sunscreen to reach your makeup and skincare goals.
Ingredients that You Should Not Use Without a Specialist Advice
Retinol is the most hyped ingredient you have heard about from your friend or a beauty influencer. Though it is fantastic for treating wrinkles, fine lines, unclogging pores, and acne. But you should not try it without specialist advice. It has several adverse reactions like irritation, skin peeling, dryness, burning, and itching.
Cleansing, toning, moisturising, and protecting your skin with SPF are the essential steps to follow regularly to maintain the health of your skin. However, your skin needs extra monthly treats to rejuvenate your skin complexion and fight the various skin concerns. Here are a few skin treatments you need to consider.
Chemical Peels- are an excellent solution for many skin concerns, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and acne scars. They remove the dead skin cells from the outermost layer of the skin and clear away the superficial signs of discolouration and ageing.
Chemical peels are available in various strengths, and a skincare specialist can guide you regarding the type you need to tackle your skin problems. At Miss Amber Aesthetics, we offer medium and deeper skin peels based on our clients’ skin conditions. The procedure is safe and minimally safe. It takes 15 to 30 minutes, and the results last for 3-6 months.
Micro-needling- is another fantastic skincare treatment that boosts collagen production, the protein responsible for a youthful and tight complexion. Again, a highly trained professional can perform the task. He uses the sterile needle to micro-puncture your skin. At Miss Amber Aesthetics, an award-winning clinical micro-needling device is used to provide you with a brighter, tauter, and fresher complexion.
Facial Treatments- A facial treatment once a month benefits your skin in many ways.
