The weather is another external factor that can wreak havoc on your skin. Just think about it: during the winter, the combination of low temperatures outside and increased indoor heating can seriously dry out your skin. Whereas in the summer, you’re dealing with humidity, sun exposure, and climbing temperatures; causing oily skin, dark spots, and even sun damage. That’s why it’s essential to combat the opposing temperatures with different formulas and ingredients throughout the year.
Everyone’s skin is constantly changing and adapting to its surrounding environment. This is why it’s so important to switch up your skincare, not only for the seasons but also according to your age. As you age, the levels of collagen in your skin begin to decline (bummer, I know), and your skin tends to dry out. You can also develop skin conditions in your 20s like rosacea or adult acne. This is why it’s super important to take the time to examine the changes in your skin as you get older, so you can cater to your skin’s developing needs.
No matter how many miracle products you slather on your face, if your diet sucks, your skin just won’t be bringing its A-game. To get that glow, you need to be supplying your body with beauty-boosting vitamins and minerals. You also need to make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day – it’s a skincare no brainer. If you’re not drinking enough water, it can make your skin look dull and emphasize fine lines.
Vitamin C is one of the strongest antioxidants on the shelves, which means it helps to protect your skin from environmental stressors that can accelerate aging. Plus, it’s even been shown to promote and encourage elastin and collagen syntheses, so combined with its ability to banish dull skin, it’s completely transformative.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate – we’re not kidding! When it comes to your skin, hydration is everything. Even if you have oily skin, you need to keep your skin hydrated; otherwise, it’ll produce more oil in an attempt to compensate. Make sure you’re moisturizing twice a day and look for hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, peptides, and ceramides.
Neglecting the neck area is one of the most common skincare mistakes. Always make sure you continue your entire skincare regime down your neck; this means double cleansing your neck as well as moisturizing. Also, be gentle and massage in upward motions so that you’re not pulling the skin downward, which is precisely where you don’t want your skin to go! Try our Decollete Restore Cream
