For healthier, gorgeous skin, abide by these do’s and don’ts in 2022.
Do you make goals every year only to have them fall off the radar? It’s time for a fresh start and an even fresher face. These simple skincare goals will leave you with long-term improvements and a glowing complexion.
1. Double Cleanse
Are you already cleansing? Why don’t you upgrade your routine to double cleanse! While the first cleanse gets rid of surface impurities, the second cleanse targets specific skin concerns! Double cleansing can also improve the efficacy of your other skincare products. We love the Dp Dermaceuticals Tri Phase Cleanser, Gentle Antioxidant Cleanser or Micellar Treatment Gel by O Cosmedics. Check with your skin coach which one is right for you.
2. SPF every-single-day
FACT: Nothing ages you more than the sun. Slathering sunscreen throughout the day helps protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays and should be applied even when you have no plans to go outside for the day. Simply put, if you’re using any other skincare products, they are essentially not going to work effectively without daily sunscreen use.
Our most-loved tinted SPF 30 skin protectors are the Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Moisturising Sunscreen and O Cosmedics Mineral Pro (also available in a clear version).
3. Start using a Serum
If you haven’t already, incorporating a serum like the O Cosmedics B3 Plus Serum or Vitamin C Hemp Seed Oil into your routine directly after cleansing will work wonders! Loaded with active ingredients, serums target specific skin conditions like ageing and pigmentation.
4. Hands off!
When you touch your face, you’re introducing a plethora of dirt and bacteria to your face. This is one of the best resolutions you can make if you’re prone to oily skin and breakouts as you’ll not only stop new breakouts from forming but prevent current ones from becoming inflamed.
5. Check your order
Wait—are you doing your routine in the right order? By using products in their optimal order, you’ll maximise their absorption and efficacy and not freak out your skin. After cleansing use products in the following order: serums, eye cream, spot treatments, hydrator, face oil. Allow time between each application to allow it to absorb. In the morning end your routine with SPF30+ and in the evening you can incorporate a retinol after your hydrator and before your face oil.
