Important Skincare Tips for All Ages: Read Now or Regret it Later!

The fact of the matter is that most people don’t take care of their skin properly. While we’re young, we can get away with sleeping with our makeup on and failing to apply SPF to a certain extent. However, the longer and more we push our luck, the sooner it will run out. There will no doubt be regrets later on down the line when the neglect starts to show! Here are some important skincare tips for all ages. The sooner you begin to use them, the better!

Always Apply an SPF, No Matter the Weather

Applying an SPF protects the skin from the sun and the harmful things in the atmosphere. Regardless of whether or not it’s sunny, you still need to do this – even in the winter! You can find moisturisers that contain SPF, so you can kill two birds with one stone. If you don’t, you can end up with sun damage as well as premature wrinkles.

Never Sleep With Your Makeup On

Sleeping with your makeup on is bad news for your skin. After wearing makeup, you should always cleanse and even double cleanse to get rid of it all. Sometimes, a makeup wipe just isn’t enough! However, if that’s all you can bear to do then it’s better than nothing. Don’t clog up your skin and ruin its condition by sleeping with your makeup on. That stuff gets transferred onto your pillow too, so you’ll be sleeping in it until you change your pillowcase!

Always Use Products to Suit Your Skin Type

If you don’t know your skin type, go to see a professional or do some research. There are multiple skin types, from oily to mature. Using the wrong products can make your skin worse. Using the right products will help to clear up your skin and balance it out. The right products can also help you to eliminate crows feet and other imperfections!

Change Your Products With the Season

Skin types change with the season. This means you’ll need to change your products with the season! You might get dry skin in winter and oily in summer. If you continue to use the same products, it’s unlikely you’ll enjoy the same quality skin you had last season.

Eat Well and Exercise

I can’t stress this enough; the things you put in your body and do with your body will have a huge impact on your skin. By making the effort to eat mostly natural, healthy foods, it’ll show on your skin. Eating too many sugary foods can make your skin spotty and dull. Exercise makes us look and feel amazing from the inside out. People who exercise always stay looking younger for longer.

Be Consistent

Consistency is the key here! You can’t keep up a routine for a few days and then have a few days off, because it’ll show. You’ll be undoing all of your hard work. We all have off days, but these days should be rare. Be consistent and you’ll thank yourself later on down the line!
