Everyone wants great skin, it’s every girl’s dream! Especially if you are preparing for a big event such as a wedding, anniversary, graduation, etc.
But are you forgetting to add some VERY important products in your skincare routine? Read on to learn how to up the ante on slaying your skincare routine!
You hear this all the time, but are you doing it? (This means you too – fellow melanin beauties!). SPF protects you from harmful sun rays. Please, please, please incorporate this into your skincare because skin cancer is real! I love to add SPF into my routine by wearing a simple tinted moisturizer or BB Cream. You don’t need alot and it’s easy to apply. A Lot of people choose to foundations with SPF already in them, however, if you don’t wear makeup everyday, choose a BB Cream instead.
How often: You should use SPF daily.
Don’t feel bad. It took me a long time to add this into my routine, but the benefits are amazing! Vitamin C helps with anti-aging and brightens the skin. If you have hyperpigmentation or uneven skin, adding Vitamin C will definitely help to even out your skin tone. Also, even if you are in your 20’s and 30’s aging is the furthest from our minds, but that is all the more reason to start adding Vitamin C in your routine now. It also helps to improve hydration. You can find this addition in skin care product lines, in a serum, or even make your own.
How often: You should use Vitamin C daily.
We all moisturize but did you know that night creams are different than your regular facial moisturizer? Night creams actually supplies more moisture to the dry parts of your face and absorbs into the skin slower. You will wake up looking refreshed and with softer, more supple skin. Night Creams boosts collagen in the skin and assists in blood circulation. To find the right night cream, I suggest starting with the same brand of your favorite moisturizer.
How often: You should use a Night Cream nightly.
This is another skin care item that took me a while to incorporate, but now that I am seeing amazing results, I won’t turn back! You can find this magic potion in a night cream or a serum in a brand of your choosing. Hyaluronic Acid helps in tissue repair and protection. It also assists in boosting elasticity, hydraction and acts as a protective barriers on the skin.
How often: Daily or Nightly depending on the product.
And let’s not forget that great skin is the perfect foundation for makeup!
