Once you’ve got your skincare routine on a good note (start it up with our tips over here ), you’re in the position to solidify and enjoy the benefits it brings. To settle into a good routine — whether it’s for the mornings or nighttime routines — you will need the allocated time, the know-how, and the right products. It’s simple, but we understand that creating new and improved healthy habits can take time. We have an article to help you select the right Secret Beauty Club product for your skin type over here.
Now that you have the right skincare products for your skin type, lifestyle, and goals, you can begin to amplify your routine and get the most out of your purchases. Secret Beauty Club has a mission to bring you the latest technology, innovation, and research in a safe, healthy, and affordable way. We get to the root of anti-aging skincare and find joy in sharing the secrets with our community.
To make the most of your skincare products and skin health, there are a few things you can do to maximize your experience. We’ve outlined some of our recommendations below.
THE ORDER TO USE THE PRODUCTS
Do you have combination skin? Delicate skin? Struggle with age spots? Are you focusing on anti-aging creams?
To achieve the required benefits of your anti-aging skincare, you need to ensure that you’re applying your products in the correct order. For example, if you cleanse or tone after putting on your moisturizer, you will lose the benefits of that product.
The standard of a basic skincare routine is to wash, then tone, use your serum, and then end off with your moisturizer. We suggest going through this motion twice a day for optimal results.
It’s also a great idea to include an exfoliator into your routine at least once a week. This will ensure that you get rid of any dead skin, dead cells and minimize the build-up of dirt and bacteria trapped under the skin. It also helps to hydrate dry skin, and maintain the right balance for those with oily skin.
Exfoliation takes place before you cleanse or use your face wash. You then continue your skincare routine as per usual. You may need to add a second layer of moisturizer to hydrate the skin further. The day that you exfoliate could be the day you use a face mask too. Your skin will love the moisture soak, and with your pores nice and open, the product will slip in beautifully.
Depending on your skincare goals, including a face mask as one of your skin care products could be beneficial in preventing premature aging. Using products that create building blocks and stimulate collagen production (such as EGF) can help tackle looming skin concerns. A mask is kept on the skin for a more extended period (usually between 10-15 minutes) or could be a leave-on mask that you sleep with throughout the night. Wash your face with warm winter, and rinse off after the time period. This is not an absolute must but can enhance your skincare routine in light of your goals. It deeply hydrates sensitive skin and helps to keep dry skin feeling moisturized and cared for.
Secret Beauty Club has beauty products and a range of serums made with active ingredients that add additional hydration and anti-aging benefits to your regime.
Our serums have been designed with anti-aging ingredients to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and can be followed with your moisturizer. Our Secret EFG Serum is the best serum for scars; EGF stimulates the skin’s ability to heal and works to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Our Hyaluronic Acid Soothing Serum is the best serum for hydration. This hydrating serum boosts the skin’s moisture levels while smoothing away fine lines and dark spots. Including this serum in your skin care routine will assist your skin texture. Whether you are struggling with dull skin, age spots, dark, acne-prone skin, spots, or uneven skin tone — the active ingredients in our anti-aging products will help you strengthen the skin barrier.
If you’re focusing on anti-aging serum and anti-aging ingredients specifically, our DMAE Serum contains the key ingredient, DMAE. It has a tightening and firming effect on drooping and sagging muscles under the skin. Once you have your moisturizer on and rubbed in correctly, you don’t need to do anything more. So give yourself a smile and a pat on the pack for putting in the work for your healthy skin, and you’re good to go!
To cleanse and wash your face in your daily routine, you don’t need much. Many of our clients wash their face with warm water in the shower or bath as this is most accessible. If you shower in the evening and not in the morning, you can wash your face in the basin. We use warm water to wet the face and then apply the face wash to the entire face. Once you’ve massaged the product in well, making sure to cleanse all of the gritty areas, you can rinse off the product. Dry off your face with a warm, clean towel and get ready to tone. Next, you can apply your toner to a cotton pad. Make sure it is adequately soaked so that there is enough formula to transfer onto your clean skin.
Toner removes any leftover residue from the cleanser and also reaches deeper to clean the skin and prepare it for the moisturizer to come. If you need to wet more cotton to apply more product to the skin, do so until you have toned your entire neck and face. Wait for the product to dry before applying your moisturizer. Now that the base is prepared, you can take out a blob of moisturizer with your fingertips and begin to apply it to the neck and face. You want to use gentle, circular motions that move in an upward direction. This stimulates blood flow and keeps the skin moving up instead of weighing down with gravity.
THE WAY YOU’RE STORING YOUR PRODUCTS
Once you’re done with your anti-aging skin care routine and products, put them in a draw or cupboard so that they’re out of the way. You don’t want your products standing in the sun or in a place where they can be knocked or moved around. We suggest having a designated area for your skincare products so that you know exactly where to go to get what you need and enjoy your day-to-day skincare routine.
Treat your products with care, and they will serve you in the same respect. Finally, make sure that you always handle your products with clean hands, especially when applying them to your skin.
TAKING A BALANCED APPROACH
As important as the right skincare products are, you will only be able to experience the full range of benefits if you’re taking care of yourself in other ways too. This means getting enough sleep, resting, minimizing your stress levels, not smoking or drinking excessive amounts of caffeine and alcohol, moving your body, and drinking at least eight glasses of water a day. You also need to have a balanced diet so that you’re taking in the nutrients you need. When you’re feeding yourself well, you get to nourish your skin from the inside out.
CHECK-IN WITH YOUR GOALS
After 12 weeks of following a skincare routine and using your products, you should take a bit of time out to reflect.
Are you satisfied with your products? Have you seen a notable difference?
Think about the people around you and whether or not they have mentioned anything about your skin or appearance.
Be honest with yourself about how you have tracked on with your products and skincare routine. If you have been diligent in your approach, you should be closer to your skincare goal.
On the other hand, if your products or skincare routine is not serving you, it may be time to return to the start and refresh your approach.
Regardless of where you are in your phase of beauty, we enjoy being a guide and place of comfort for you — providing quality skin care products that you can trust.
Secret Beauty Club respects and understands that beauty is a supremely private topic, and it’s also a significant, costly investment. Your skincare products need to work for you. To get the most out of them, make sure you’re following the tips set out above. We look forward to sharing more and more beauty secrets for flawless skin.
