Okay, first things first, let’s define perfection as health and beauty in a single package, with a greater focus on the former as the key to achieving the latter. Don’t dwell on the photoshopped images on magazine covers or measure yourself against anyone else’s skin. Look in the mirror, and use that reflection as your scale for achieving your skincare goals! This is the only approach that will help you stick to healthy expectations and make sure that you can truly choose what’s right for your pores, and not what works for a celebrity.
With that cleared up, let’s clear up those pores, too! Dermatologists all over the globe might have numerous disagreements on the best treatments for different skin types, and skin troubles. However, there’s a consensus on a few of them that can help you achieve your skin goals and get that perfect complexion. Here are a few to try out and add to your routine as soon as yesterday!
Rethink night care
We often treat our night beauty ritual as the one that we end the day with. However, experts advise to switch up that perspective and look at it a little differently. Think of your night beauty care as the prevention for the next day’s issues. It’s much simpler and easier to prevent excessive dryness or irritation by adapting your nighttime care than to treat the damage that’s already wreaked havoc on your beauty.
Look at how certain beauty editors handle their bedtime skincare, and you can pick up a number of useful tips. For example, a more thorough approach to cleansing is in order, so that you can remove the buildup of pollutants and toxins in your pores. Adding a soothing serum afterward helps battle any potential inflammation of tomorrow.
Use tech for youthful radiance
Medicine and technology have worked for hand in hand for years now, so now we have access to innovative skin-beautifying treatments that won’t harm even the most sensitive of skin types. For example, instead of invasive surgical procedures, you can opt for ultherapy skin tightening based on the use of ultrasound to stimulate your skin cells and give you a more youthful appearance.
Ladies that have had issues with retinol-based solutions know that sometimes the most promising treatments can be very harsh on the skin, hence the need for this cutting-edge, harm-free option that can target even the areas around your eyes.
Take seasonal care seriously
Although you might feel protective of your favorite summertime skincare regime, you should remember that dermatologists prescribe season-specific treatments for a good reason. The light and gel-like hydration creams ideal for the summer will not be enough for harsh winter winds and freezing temperatures. Instead, you need richer, denser moisturizers that protect your skin better without burdening your pores, and that preferably come with UVA and UVB protection, too.
Another common mistake many women make when it’s time to switch seasons is that they avoid or reduce how often they exfoliate. While this will differ from one woman to another, you should keep in mind that mild exfoliation is necessary for your skin to truly absorb all the nutrients from your lotions and creams, and reduce the damage done by pollution and the environment.
Sleep your way to more beauty
Yes, getting ample sleep every night is vital for your beauty, but there are ways to make those hours even more restful for your skin. For starters, if you wake up with puffy eyes and dark circles, you might need to hydrate better, but you also might benefit from elevating your head with an additional pillow – this improves your circulation and reduces eye puffiness in the morning as a result.
Of course, adding powerful hydration and rejuvenating treatment during the night is a helpful step as well, but make sure that you rely on quality sleep practices first and foremost.
Sometimes, it does come down to the product you get and the cleansing cloth you use every day to perfect your complexion. At other times, it takes a little innovation to give your most sensitive spots the care they need to survive the sun damage and the pollution we’re all surrounded with. Make sure to always be on the lookout for new beauty hacks that can help you advance your skincare, but use these as the basis for your beauty and your skin will love you for it.
