4 Ways to Boost Your Skincare Routine

4 Ways to Boost Your Skincare Routine

Everyone dreams of achieving perfect, radiant skin. While ‘perfect’ skin does not exist, it is possible to improve the health, texture and appearance of your complexion by altering aspects of your skincare routine. Every skincare routine is as unique as the individual following it…but there are always ways to boost and improve your skincare regime, no matter how unique it is to you! Following these 4 expert tips can demystify your skin care concerns, to give your skin exactly what it needs.


What do we mean by “skincare”?

‘Skincare’ refers to the basic care and maintenance of the body’s largest organ- the skin! Our skin provides a protective barrier against outside factors like free radicals, pathogens and UV rays.  Just like washing our hair, our skin needs some love and attention in order to function properly and stay healthy. Establishing a skincare routine—and consistently sticking to it— is the first step to achieving glowing, radiant skin. (Click here for some tips and tricks to establish an effective skincare routine!)


1. Wash your face morning AND night

Laziness may be one persuasive seductress, but, washing your face twice a day has had proven benefits on the skin. Washing your face of a morning removes impurities and dead skin cells that have collected on the skin overnight and can also prepare the skin for makeup application. Cleansing the skin is crucial to facilitate cell turnover and balance the skin’s natural pH levels.

While it may be easy to dismiss daily cleansing, always promising to “do it tomorrow”, letting your skin ‘marinate’ overnight can let dead skin cells, free radicals and environmental toxins accumulate onto your pillow - leading to future breakouts that no one wants. Cleansing the skin - although it can seem like more of a burden than a benefit - will keep your complexion well balanced and radiant. Clean skin is healthy skin!


2. Start applying retinol at night

Keeping up with constantly chaning skincare trends and lingo is difficult, especially for those that sound made up—like retinol! While it is understandable to be sceptical about the hype, retinol is a chemical derivative of vitamin A that has been proven to reduce wrinkles, improve collagen production, treat acne and stimulate blood vessels. Dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf states “Retinol enhances the recovery of the skin at a DNA level—and by using it at night when your skin is in recovery mode, you’re best able to enhance its natural processes and get the best results.” 


3. Stop skipping DIY facial massages!

Facial massaging can facilitate lymphatic draining, improving blood circulation, manage breakouts and remove toxins from the skin—the benefits are endless! The lymphatic system consists of multiple ‘lymphoid’ organs, acting as the skin’s ‘sewage system’ that removes the metabolic waste produced by our skin cells. When this drainage system slows down with age, it can cause our skin to appear ‘puffy’ and tired. The good news is we can speed it back up! Lymphatic massages are gentle movements on the skin that can be done while applying your skincare products, to encourage the lymph to circulate and remove waste and toxins from the skin through the lymphatic system.

4. Don’t diss organic skincare!

Organic skincare products have recently drawn public attention due to their cosmetic benefits. While some may be sceptical, dermatologists have tested and sworn by natural products for their dense nutrient profiles that deliver vital antioxidants, vitamins and minerals directly to the skin. 

Organic products are gentle on the skin and perfect for those with sensitive skin types as they simultaneously soothe and soften the skin—with no chemicals or preservatives needed. However, it is always important to scan the ingredients before applying any ‘natural’ skincare product—to ensure it is curated from certified organic ingredients and avoid inflammation or irritation. Trying new products may be daunting, however, finding products that work for your skin is essential to sustaining a radiant complexion!
