Firstly, what suits my skin may not be the best fit for everyone. But, a good skincare routine will do wonders for your complexion.
Where do I start with a skincare routine?
There are some basics that everyone should introduce into their routine.
We all need a decent cleanser, an antioxidant serum in the morning to protect our skin from free radical damage, an anti-aging eye cream, be it for prevention or reversal or both, an spf moisturiser to prevent UV damage and aging and a mineral make up to complement our skincare routine.
At night our skin needs to repair. We kick this off with a double cleanse to remove any make up and excess oil and debris. A powerful treatment serum, either a Vitamin A or a growth factor or peptide, your eye cream again, followed by a hydrating repairing night cream.
All of this will help to give your skin an amazing glow. However what is equally as important is a healthy diet, at least 2 liters of water daily, regular Colonic Irrigation ( http://www.mediskin.ie/treatments/colonic-irrigation/ ) treatments, 7-8 hours sleep as this is when our skin does the majority of its repairing, and an element of wellbeing, be it exercise, reading a book or whatever it is that relaxes you. A commitment to your daily skincare routine is vital.
Alongside all of this we recommend an exfoliation two to three times a week, this will help to kick off old dead skin cells and stimulate new cell turnover. It will even out your skin tone and allow make up to glide on. A mask can also be used a couple of times a week, whether to use a hydrating or decongesting one will depend on your main skin concerns.
