Sure, we have likely been spending more time at home than we’re accustomed to, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to skimp on skincare. Taking care of your skin is a great way to boost your mood, not to mention your complexion. That’s why we’ve compiled a few simple DIY tips for at-home skincare:
SPF all day, every day!
Pro tip: Sunscreen is likely the most important beauty weapon in life, and we are not exaggerating. It’s estimated that up to 90% of your skin’s aging is the result of sun exposure, not age. So unless you live underground, you really do need to apply an SPF sunscreen daily. Harmful UVA and UVB rays can penetrate clouds as well as the glass of your windows, so there is never a bad time to remember sunscreen.
Spring clean your routine.
Now is the perfect time to dust off your skincare shelf or drawer and clear out your makeup bags. Throw out expired products or ones you tried and decided didn’t work for you. Your skin deserves the best! That’s why, once you’ve cleared out the old and expired products, the next step is to stock up on proven, results-driven products such as Nelly De Vuyst® Skin Care, which we provide here at Solace Wellness Center & MedSpa in addition to our own private skin care line. If you haven’t tried medical-grade products before, it’s understandable if you’re not sure what would be best for your skin. Our team of skincare experts are happy to help you choose the right products during your personal consultation.
It’s all about the basics.
The biggest basic to remember right now — and always — is to not touch your face. This step is essential for preventing infection, but it’s also important for preventing breakouts! Though we don’t usually think about it when we touch our face, every time we do it we’re depositing oil and bacteria onto our skin, which can clog pores and also lead to illness.
Wash your face
Now is a great time to remind yourself of the simple pleasure of a soothing nighttime skin care ritual because it’s not only soothing, it can also make a difference in the health of your skin. Cleansing your face at the end of the day is a relaxing way to essentially wipe your slate clean and prepare for a good night of rest. It’s also really healthy for your skin, since leaving makeup on can actually irritate your dermis and contribute to premature wrinkling.
Harness the rejuvenating benefits of sleep
Did you know that your skin goes into intense healing mode while you sleep? That’s why experts recommend applying results-driven skin serums at night before bed. It maximizes the benefits of your skin’s natural revitalizing powers. After washing your face, remember to apply your favorite medical-grade serum and moisturizer. Your skin will thank you!
