One thing we as shut ins have been collectively participating in is online shopping, stressing, and hoping for better days to come. And with these collective habits that we are developing comes the side effects showing through our skin.
Unfortunately social distancing is not flattening the curve of our breakouts, stress lines, and blemishes. But these few modifications to your skincare routine definitely will!
- Switch out your Facial Cleanser
If you don’t use a cleanser prescribed to you by a dermatologist, then you should feel free to branch out and try a different formula. It is important to use a cleanser that compliments your skin type. If you have dry skin, then you will want to invest in a cream cleanser that will restore moisture into your skin and cleanse your pores. If you have Oily to normal skin, you might want to invest in a foaming cleanser that can strip your skin of unnecessary oils and provide the deep clean and hydration your skin needs every day.
- Add a Serum to your Routine
If you don’t already have a serum somewhere in your skincare routine, then you should definitely consider adding one. Serums replenish your skin and are usually infused with vitamin E, C, and or retinol to awaken your skin cells and improve elasticity. Without this step in your skin routine, you are probably experiencing dry skin, flaking, and premature wrinkling. Applying a serum to your face and neck before bed will truly give your skin’s appearance the glow it deserves!
- Pick Up a New Moisturizer
The key component to any skin care regimen is your moisturizer. Moisturizer sets the tone for your skin for the whole day, and as you sleep. Most dermatologists advise their patients to choose a moisturizer with vitamins C and E, and an SPF of 15 or above. Take your time selecting your perfect moisturizer! If your skin is typically normal/oily, shoot for a gel moisturizer with anti aging properties. If your skin is dry go for a cream based moisturizer to lock in moisture for daily wear.
