A few weeks ago, I posted about skincare on my Instagram and it seems like a lot of you cuties don’t have a skincare routine! As someone who has always had problematic skin, I definitely know the value of consistency and establishing skincare routine. So I want to start simple with a few tips on how to take care of your skin. I’m not going to tell you to apply a hundred serums – let’s make it EASY with a few of the most important things you can do for your skin.
This one is pretty easy…no matter what your skin type is, you need to moisturize daily! Actually twice a day! There are lots of options out there but right now I’m loving Olay Whips Total Effects Moisturizer. It’s lightweight and so comfortable on the skin but still incredibly hydrating. It was specifically designed to have a smooth, matte finish while still delivering potent skincare. It transforms from a cream into a liquid on contact and absorbs almost instantly (seriously, y’all…it’s amazing). Since we’re keeping things *simple* today, Olay Whips are a great moisturizer because of the 7 benefits they offer (in 1 product!) – replenishes nourishing moisture, evens skin tone appearance, enhances brightness, visibly smooths fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes the look of pores, restores firmness and visibly reduces dark spots. As I said, I’m using Total Effects, but they also have Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer which helps diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
No one wants to hear it, but water is an easy way to keep your whole body hydrated….including your skin. This is one tip that I slip on fairly regularly and I can ALWAYS tell the next day when I look in the mirror. Let’s work on this one together!
Know your skin type
Know your skin type before purchasing any products! Some products will work for all skin types, but there are others that are more specific. Plus knowing your skin type allows you to know more about whether a product will work for you when you read reviews.
Give your products time to work
Unfortunately, it takes time to know whether your skin products are working. Give them a AT LEAST two weeks of consistent use before making a decision (unless the product is irritating your skin, of course!)
This is one of the MOST important things you can do for your skin! Consistency is key. Don’t change products all the time and do everything regularly. My current skincare routine is relatively simple but I ALWAYS make sure to cleanse and moisturize my face twice a day. Even if I’m super sleepy and don’t want to add in extra serums or masks….I always cleanse and moisturize! Stay consistent and your skin will thank you!
Apply SPF Daily
It won’t happen overnight but over time, the sun can do some major damage to your skin. Protect it daily with an SPF (hint hint, Olay Whips are available with and without SPF in Regenerist, Total Effects and Luminous but I think you know which one I’m recommending). I purchased my Olay Whips Face Moisturizer at King Sooper’s, but you can pick yours up at at any Kroger banner store!
