The importance of skin cares routine
Proper skin care helps to keep the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) intact. This layer maintains skin’s overall hydration and serves as defense against the environment. This is why; the epidermis is prone to damage caused by sun, air pollution and other factors. Therefore, keeping epidermis strong is essential for younger-looking skin.
Skin care routine isn’t the “invention” of modern ages; women cared for their bodies throughout the history. For example, accounts from Ancient Egypt suggest that Cleopatra had a strict skin regimen, and she even bathed in milk that exfoliated and nourished her skin. Ancient Greek athletes used to bathe in olive oil to protect their skin from scorching heat and Romans used soaps to cleanse their skin. The skin care revolutionized with the advance of science, and now we can use various products to cleanse hydrate, and nourish the skin providing it with valuable nutrients to look youthful.
5 minutes a day for younger look
“I don’t have time” is the most common reason women use to elaborate why they don’t have regular skin care routine. The truth is; regular skin care regimen doesn’t last longer than 5 minutes. Moreover, to look younger and make sure your skin is healthy, elastic and has healthy glow, you need to start with this regimen.
The only way to get the best out of your skin care routine is to know what to do and what products to use. Luckily, with Solvaderm daily skin care protocol it’s easy to remember what it takes to look younger. Here it is:
The cleanser is the essential part of your skin care regimen. It removes dirt, makeup, sebum, and other impurities from your skin, thus preventing pores from clogging. Clogged pores cause inflammation, dull complexion, and acne breakouts. Water itself can’t remove everything from your skin, and it needs help from gentle, but powerful cleanser. Cleansers are essential for the radiant look of your skin.
The effectiveness of cleansers was proven in the study conducted by Draelos ZD from Dermatology Consulting Services. The primary aim of the research was to investigate the effect of cleansers on the skin and whether it is effective in dealing with acne. Findings of the study were published in the journal Cutis, and they revealed that gentle facial cleansers don’t damage skin barrier or result with sebum overcompensation, and they are effective in deep-pore cleansing that is helpful for managing acne-associated symptoms.
People usually think if they use cleanser they don’t need toner, but that’s a mistake. Good toners remove last, tiny traces of impurities that cleanser missed, and it is essential for an evening out your skin tone.
Serums are ideal for specific results. For example, you notice age spots or other imperfections, and you want to make them less visible. Instead of applying creams all over the face and risk damaging healthy areas, you can opt for serum, apply it to affected areas and have even better results. For example, Solvaderm’s ACE-ferulic Rejuvenating Serum promotes dermal restoration and provides strong defense against skin aging. Here are a few, out of many, benefits of this serum:
- Protects skin from environmental and UV damage
- Fights multiple signs of photo-aging (caused by the sun)
- Noticeably lightens hyper pigmented areas
- Improves elasticity and minimizes fine lines
- Nourishes the skin
The benefit of this serum is its versatility. For example, you can apply it to your face and neck to tackle wrinkles, or you can apply it on age spots only to fade them out.
Moisturizers are essential because they retain moisture in the skin. Lack of moisture makes your skin dry, flaky, irritated, and dull. Luckily, when you use moisture (facial and body) right after a shower or cleansing your face, the moisture is retained, and skin becomes soft, smooth, and nourished. You can also opt for a moisturizer with SPF that will provide protection from the sun’s radiation while hydrating your skin.
5. Eye cream
The skin around eyes develops wrinkles and fine eyes sooner than other areas on your face or body. That happens because this particular area doesn’t have sebaceous (oil) glands. Therefore, to rejuvenate the skin completely and make the wrinkles less visible, you have to treat the eye area with special product – eye cream. Eye creams are specially formulated to treat, repair, and nourish sensitive skin around your eyes.
6. Night cream
When you sleep, skin cells work hard to repair and to make the best out of your nighttime, you should use cream that is formulated to work with skin’s natural, internal rhythm. In turn, collagen production improves and harmful free radicals are destroyed by antioxidants from a night cream.
Exfoliation is an important part of skin care routine, and it is usually done once or twice a week. When you exfoliate, dead skin cells are removed which allows new, healthy cells to come to the surface because exfoliation stimulates cell renewal. Exfoliating your skin every week leads to a clear and bright complexion that isn’t tainted by various impurities and imperfections.
Achieving younger-looking skin isn’t that difficult. To have a healthy glow and clear complexion all you need is regular skin care routine that doesn’t take long than 5 minutes. Regular regimen eliminates dead skin cells and other impurities from your pores, prevents acne outbreaks, and supplies your skin with valuable nutrients it needs.
