5 Skincare Rules to Follow Now
Back at the beginning of the year, I put together some beauty resolutions for 2017 and honestly, I am so happy I did! As I’ve gotten older (and matured) I have really developed a new appreciation for skincare and my skin especially. No more do I step outside without any sunscreen, sleep with makeup and even just pick up skincare products based on their price.
Now, I love my skin, so I do my best to show it all the love as much as possible. Whether you are new to skincare and consider yourself a skincare expert, if you follow these 5 rules, you are bound to fall in love with your skin every day!
Stick to a Routine.
I find that will all things in your life, sticking to a schedule is a great way to make sure that everything is taken care of in the best way possible. I have nailed down my skincare routine and each night I throw in a face mask for good measure which has really brought the life back into my skin.
By creating a solid skincare schedule for both morning and night, you will never skimp out on caring for your skin in the best way possible. Whether it be a nightly ritual or that weekly facial treatment that you love, your skin will love you for always showing it some consistent love!
Remove Makeup Every Night.
This rule has been around for ages, and it still rings true today. Never, and I mean never sleep with makeup on. I understand that late nights and early mornings can sometimes get in the way, but removing makeup each night will make all the difference in the end!
Lately I’ve been using Neutrogena’s All-In-One-Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes and it has changed my beauty game immensely. Especially on the nights that leave very little time to do a full skincare routine, it’s become so comforting knowing that I have my Neutrogena wipes to help me thoroughly clean my skin without any heavy residue leftover when I’m wiped out and need to hit the sheets fast.
Not only will they save my sheets from all the makeup left on my face, but also the fragrance free formulated Neutrogena wipes save my skin so I can wake up fresh faced and smooth! I even used my wipes during my trip when I had been flying all night and needed to hit the hay immediately and the best part was that I didn’t even have to rinse off any product in the bathroom and the wipe took care of all my stubborn eye makeup and waterproof mascara as well.
The Neutrogena All-in-One Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes come in different varieties like their new Fragrance Free pack, so you never have to go to sleep with makeup on. Now, there is just no excuse!
I never truly understood the benefits of pampering myself until I got older. Stress, a hectic schedule and work filled my time, but now, I find it crucial to pamper myself (and my skin) as much as possible and whenever I can.
Pampering your skin has a lot to do with just giving it a break. And by break, I mean going without makeup when you can. It’s important to let your skin breath and give it the break it deserves. I do understand that at times this can be tricky because we tend to feel more comfortable with makeup on, but I promise that you will feel better going without a full face of makeup when you are only grocery shopping. With that said, a little mascara and lip gloss will go a long way.
Aside from taking a “make-up break” when possible, pampering your skin is essential. Whether you enjoy full facials or at-home facials, you will benefit in the long run and if time is not on your side, dedicate one night a week to a full at-home facial routine with a face mask as you enjoy a glass of wine!
You know you deserve it!
I have probably mentioned this rule in every.single.one of my skincare posts, but sunscreen is LEGIT ladies. Even if you follow every skincare rule, if you don’t protect your skin using SPF, then the UV rays will not only cause premature ageing, but can cause skin cancer as well, and it’s the harmful UV rays that damage the skin and cause wrinkles.
I am doing my best to age as gracefully as possible, so wearing sunscreen during each season of the year will help me protect my skin and keeping it as youthful as possible. Isn’t that what we all want?
Love Yourself First.
Before everything, be sure to love yourself and that is including your skin. Don’t stress over what kind of skin you have and instead, embrace it. Only you look like you, and that my friend is just beautiful. Love yourself and love your skin and show it all the TLC you can and it will come right back to you. Sleep well, drink loads of water and give your skin the same respect you would give to your body, your hair and everything in between.
The more we love ourselves, the more we will appreciate it. And the more we appreciate it, the more love to it we will show!
