If there is something else that we will remember 2020 for except the world pandemic spread out, that will be the skincare “outbreak”. It is not something new that we all care about ourselves, care about our health and our looks, but 2020 has written ‘self-care’ allover. A part of this ‘self-care’ awareness includes skincare. The standards and routines for skincare were literally changed by the K beauty world.
Korean face cosmetics, as one of the most popular at the moment, offers wonderful natural facial and skincare options that usually do not contain parabens, color, or fragrance, which is an additional positive fact when it comes to face care and prevention of deterioration on the condition of the skin. They also have many positive effects when it comes to nourishing acne of any type as well as scars from them.
But, first things, first. If you are a skincare beginner, it is very confusing where to start, what to choose, in which order to use. Adding different skincare products to your morning and evening routine can be very challenging, especially at the beginning, and if you need some help, you can always look for lists for top products and recommended routines on websites like DeListProducts, and find exactly what you need to proceed with your skincare habits.
In addition to determining your skin type and your goal that you want to achieve by introducing the new routine, it is very important that you do not introduce too many new products at once. Aggressive change of your routine can cause side effects that can contribute to the worsening of the situation of your skin even though the products you have chosen for yourself are very positively effective.
That’s why we recommend for starters something that is a big must in the world of skincare: Moisturizing (and of course, using SPF cream even when there is no sunlight outside because the harmful UV rays can reach your skin, and cause damage to your cells).
This is something that must be part of your day and night routine, and not just if you have dry skin. Moisturizing has a positive effect not only on dry skin but also on any skin type because it plays an important role when it comes to skin elasticity, skin health, and the absorption of other active ingredients that you will use as part of your routine in the future.
While choosing your moisturizer please read the ingredients list and look for the following vitamins in order to increase the results: Vitamin B and Vitamin A (to increase the firmness and improve moisture levels), Anti-Oxidant Vitamins C and E (helps you while fighting with damaged skin but also protecting the new one) and always look for SPF, as high as possible. If the lotion of your choice has no high SPF, please invest also in SPF for your skin.
Let’s start with the few benefits of using a moisturizer in your regular routine:
One of the most common causes of facial wrinkles is that the skin becomes drier over the years, not only externally but also internally or under the skin. This dryness also causes a loss of elasticity of the skin itself, thus creating wrinkles on the face. To prevent the appearance of wrinkles or new wrinkles, dermatologists recommend primarily hydration of the skin, where unfortunately not only drinking water is enough, but also proper hydration over the years is necessary. Choosing a good moisturizer and / or serum is one of the most important things when it comes to face care.
2. Reduce skin problems
Regular and good skin hydration, in addition to giving a fresh look to the face, also plays an important role in treating and preventing more serious skin problems such as acne of any type. Hydration allows healthy and new cells to form a stronger foundation for coming to the surface as well as helping sore spots and parts heal faster. In addition, hydration is an essential element for balancing skin processes and regulating dry skin as well as sebum secretion in oily and combination skin.
3. Balancing the tan and its unevenness
Many moisturizers use BB or CC creams, ie a kind of gentle coverage ingredient that when used evens out the complexion or balances the differences that are part of it as a result of unprotected sun exposure over the years. We reiterate that the use of SPF during each sun exposure is the main protection from harmful UV rays.
4. The incredible glow of a healthy face
One of the most frequently mentioned positive effects of hydration is the wonderful healthy glow that appears on the face after prolonged use of the right facial cosmetics and is one of the most visible signs that you are on the right track when it comes to facial care. Many girls who talk openly about their day and night routines say that with the advent of the glow they have already started to be part of those people who do not want to use makeup very often enjoying the benefits of hydration.
5. Elevated self-confidence
Whether you have a specific skin problem or you just want to prevent the health of your skin, hydration of the face and the whole body always gives very positive results which after a period of regular and proper use gives reliable results that are visible to yourself. as well as for others around you. And who would say no to compliments?
Whether you decide to make a major change in your day and night skin routine, apply just one moisturizer or delve deep into the world of skincare and become a skincare addict, always keep in mind that before applying any product you should carefully read its ingredients and make a test for irritation before applying the product on the skin of the face. This is especially true for more aggressive products such as chemical peels. The best way to do this is to apply the product to the skin around your elbow. If you have more serious skin problems, it is best to consult your dermatologist before making any changes to your daily routine.
