Great skin starts with great skincare. Try these 5 hacks to transform your skin in no time:
1. Put Your Toner In The Fridge
Toner is the step that most of us miss out in our skincare routine. But if you suffer from puffiness, spots or redness toner can be extra beneficial to you. Try putting your toner in the fridge for 10 mins before you apply it. Cooling your toner helps to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. It also closes your pores to stop unwanted dirt from clogging them up and causing more spots!
2. Clean Your Phone
Our phones are filthy. We handle them all day, put them down on dirty surfaces and they even come to the loo with some of us. All the grime of daily life ends up on our phone which we then press up against our face. Cleaning your phone regularly with antibacterial spray or wipes can help stop dirt building up an transferring on to your skin. The same goes for your pillowcase. Make sure you wash your pillowcases regularly to stop dirt accumulating.
3. Use A Cleansing Brush
Exfoliating is a great way to buff away old and dull skin cells to make room for shiny new ones. But manual exfoliating, and all it’s minefields, are a thing of the past. With a cleansing brush you won’t have to worry if your scrubbing delicate areas of your face too hard or whether your cloth is clean enough to use. There are a number of cleansing brushes on the market, my personal favourite is the Magnitone Barefaced! Facial Cleansing Brush. It has a built in timer which tells you how long to cleanse each area of your face for as well as two settings for a really deep clean. The cleansing brush also acts as a facial massage which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, stimulate blood flow and gets rid of puffiness.
4. Don’t Over Wash Your Face
We all love that feeling of freshly cleansed skin but too much of a good thing can be bad for us too. Washing your face more than 3 times a day or exfoliating too vigorously and too often can strip the skin of its natural oils. It can make the skin dry and irritated and could leave you with more spots than ever. Try washing your face with warm water instead of hot water. Hot water can be damaging for the skin and leaves it dehydrated.
5. Let Moisturiser Absorb
Moisturiser is a must for every skin type. But be sure to let your skin absorb its goodness for at least 10 mins before you start applying your makeup. Otherwise it will sit on top of your pores mixed with foundation making you look oily! To fully get the benefit of moisturiser, apply it gently to clean skin after using a toner.
