Taking care of your skin is the first step to enjoying a lifetime of natural beauty. It doesn’t need to be complicated, time-consuming, or expensive — just an everyday consistent commitment to yourself and your skin.
There are a few basic steps to include in your daily routine: keeping your skin clean, not overly touching your face, using the right products, and setting out a time to cleanse, tone, and moisturize (both morning and night preferably).
It’s also important to identify your skin. For example, do you have sensitive skin? Oily skin? Combination skin?
There are easy ways to make this a habit, and we’re going to dive into some quick tips to creating your own beautiful and sustainable skincare routine.
Once this is solid, it is easy to maintain, and you’re able to go through the wholesome routine with hardly any thought! It will be a natural flow of life, and your skin will thank you for it.
TAKE THE TIME
When you are carving time out of your day to take care of your skin, you will start to see the benefits. This is a building block to beautiful skin. Using an SPF in your daily moisturizer will help protect your face from sun damage, prevent the signs of early aging and ensure all-around skin health. Sun protection daily is a must for a healthy routine.
If you’re prepared to take the small steps now, it will save you on expensive treatments and products later. It’s true that when your skin feels and looks healthy, it is a good indicator of your overall health and well-being too.
If you’ve been keeping up with our blog, you’ll know that the Secret Beauty Club believes in a rounded, holistic approach to beauty. We understand and appreciate the importance of a balanced diet, taking in enough water, making time to exercise (in whatever form you enjoy most), and reducing stress.
When combining these lifestyle factors with consistent skincare products that work for you, you’re on your way to set up a sustainable routine that will keep you feeling confident.
MAKE IT EXCITING
It makes your daily skin care routine exciting when you have skincare products that you can look forward to using. Whether it be the beautiful, soft smell of your moisturizer or the lightly fruity scent of your toner — these small touches add to the experience of your day-to-day routine.
Let your morning and evening “me-time” be something you get excited about; the time you have set out in your day to connect with yourself and check in with your skin and body.
We so quickly brush past the moments to care for ourselves and then spend a lot more time focusing on the needs of those around us. There is no shame in realizing that you have got into the trap of putting yourself last on the list.
It is good to acknowledge where you are and make minor adjustments to find your way to or back into a sustainable beauty routine. Keep your skin healthy with natural ingredients.
You could do this in a few different ways, but we recommend keeping it super simple. This is because we often get asked for an example, and the easiest and best routine we could put forward is the one that sticks for you.
Start by finding the products that serve your skin in the best way possible. For example, if you have dry skin, ensure you’re equipped with products that hydrate and nourish your face. On the other hand, maybe you have sensitive skin that needs extra care, or you want to focus on anti-aging — understanding your skincare needs will make finding the right products much easier.
INCLUDE SIMPLE TRICKS
Simple steps like keeping your face wash in the shower will help you remember to use it. Hands need to be thoroughly cleaned before using them to massage the product into your skin. It’s important to exfoliate at least once a week to get rid of dead skin cells. If you are washing your face with warm water at the basin, keep your gentle cleanser close by so that it doesn’t feel like a hassle to get it out. You want a clean, soft, dry towel to pat off your face once you’ve washed your skin, so make an effort to have one hanging nearby.
It’s a mission to walk with a wet, dripping look to find a towel. Once you’ve gently dried off your face, use your toner with a soft cotton pad to clear off any excess cleanser and to prepare your skin for the moisturizer. This doesn’t need to be a long process, but be mindful about what you’re doing so that you can enjoy beautiful skin.
Skin issues such as dark spots, dull skin, acne-prone skin, dehydrated skin, and flaky skin can be stressful to deal with.
BE GRATEFUL FOR ALL YOU HAVE
Appreciate your skin, your face, and the unique features you hold. Making this process a positive, uplifting experience can turn your entire attitude and confidence around.
Next, you want to moisturize. With a cleansed and toned face and neck, you’re ready for the nourishment: your serum and your moisturizer. Apply this in upward motions, massaging the skin as you allow the cream to penetrate your face deeply. Don’t forget about your neck — use the same upward movements as the cream soaks in. The massaging stimulates blood flow, keeps the skin soft, and gives you a radiant glow. You can follow this up with an eye cream to keep your skin hydrated.
The other beauty products that you can add to your routine are a hydrating night cream and clay mask for weekly use.
JUST KEEP IT SIMPLE
There are many added extra’s that you can include in your routine — feel free to spice it up with your special touches, such as a sheet mask. In addition, your healthcare professional may have one or two more suggestions for you to take your skincare to the next level.
Starting with the basics will give you an excellent foundation for healthy skin, and these habits will serve you in all stages of beauty.
Regardless of the time spent on your skincare routine, it is essential to get started. No matter your age, skin type, skin concerns, set out a time where you can take care of yourself and your skin.
The easier the skin care routine is to go through, the more likely you will keep it up and make it sustainable.
Secret Beauty Club includes active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid so that you’re able to maximize the skin and effort put into your facial skin. In addition, we believe in clean beauty and sustainable skincare products that will strengthen the skin barrier and be easy to include in your daily skincare routine.
We encourage you to create beautiful, healthy habits so that you enjoy your journey of beauty.
