Hola beauties, I hope you’re all okay! I have been trying to mix up my posts and decided to write a skincare post before I go back to my Summer Must Haves segment. Dollar Shave Club have been spreading awareness about how important it is to look after your skin on a daily basis and I decided now that summer is here, there is no better time to write a post on looking after your skin especially when the sun is out! They are also sharing tips and answering any questions you guys may have so go check them out!
DSC sent me some graphics to share with you guys and if you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know how much I emphasise on the importance of skincare. So let’s jump into it!
1: Finding a good moisturiser to use when your skin and the weather is at its driest is important, our skin can become dry super quickly and sometimes we just need that little boost to make our skin soft, supple and happy again!
2: If you read my 10 Tips for clearer skin post, you’ll know that I mentioned I find it best to cleanse and exfoliate whilst in the shower however the best time to also apply any moisturisers or essential oils is when your pores are open after a shower. Warm water and air opens up your pores meaning the product will be taken in and to close your pores after cleansing or exfoliating, you can just splash your face with some cold water.
3: And although I looove hot showers, they can really dry your skin out as well as be damaging to your hair follicles if if the water is too hot. Keeping it at a warm temperature is the best way to avoid drying your skin out so we can all have skin as soft as a baby’s 🙂
4 & 5: I actually never knew this however I learnt from DSC that using body lotion to moisturise can really clog up your pores. My favourite moisturiser for my face is the Neutrogena Oil-Free moisturiser as it is super light but leaves your skin feeling super soft since it contains Aloe and Camomile to help soothe your skin. Since it’s part of the Visibly Clear range, it also contain salicylic acid to help keep away spots and keep your skin clear – it really is a dream of a product! It’s a really gentle, light-weight moisturiser and can be used on all skin types
Taking care of your skin is super important and i’d love to hear any tips you guys have!
And that’s all for now! I really enjoyed writing this so let me know if you guys want to see more skincare posts – I’m thinking about writing a post on my current skincare routine so look out for that and I’ll see you guys in my next post 🙂 Don’t forget to check out one of my previous post‘s on how you can make your own setting spray!
