Like the seasons, our skin is ever-changing, and as it evolves, we may need to develop our skincare routine. As the winter weather takes its toll, our skin may feel dry and in need of a little extra nourishment. Luckily, the beauty industry is ever-evolving, too and looking for new ways to help you achieve your desired results.
Discovering new and exciting ways to enhance our daily routines, with products that help give our skin a healthy glow. If you want to try something new, you don’t need to buy many new products. Using the ones you have correctly can help.
Knowing how to layer your skincare products correctly can help maximise your skincare routine, enhancing the benefits of achieving radiant skin.
The key to healthy radiant skin is a skincare routine that hydrates your skin, and our Light-Hydrating Moisturiser from our Poko Range will do precisely that.
How to get glowing skin
Knowing the best products for your skin type is essential to ensure you achieve the results you want. Equally important is applying them correctly.
Identifying problematic areas and choosing the serum or moisturiser to deliver maximum benefits, makes a world of difference. As we know by now, our lifestyle and external conditions contribute to the condition of our skin.
Therefore consideration of these factors can inform the products we choose to layer. Routine or ritual helps us to balance our day and keep focused on what we want to achieve. Similarly, your daily skincare routine can positively impact other aspects of your life.
How does a skincare ritual help, and how do we maintain a routine that helps us achieve healthy glowing skin.
Skincare routine for dry skin
We have all experienced dry skin at some time in our lives for one reason or another. Contributing factors like weather, hormonal changes, central heating, or ageing skin, can all leave our skin feeling dehydrated and dull.
That’s why using the Ultra Hydrating Moisturiser helps revitalise our skin. However, before we get to that, let’s look at some of the causes of dry skin.
Causes of dry skin
- Low Humidity
- Harsh cold weather
- Loss of nutrients
- House temperatures
- Lack of water
- Hard water
- Skin conditions, psoriasis or eczema
If you want to keep skin healthy and fresh, then daily cleansing is top of the to-do list. It is essential to remove any pollutant or bacteria from the skin before adding your refreshing, nourishing serums or moisturisers.
If your skin is dry, using a cream cleanser is the better option or an oil-based cleanser. Other more foamy cleansers can leave your skin feeling dry.
If you want to keep your skin fresh and healthy, exfoliating a couple of times a week can be of benefit. It removes bacteria and any excess dead skin cells, giving our skin a thorough clean. The same can be said if your skin matures, as dead cell buildup can cause the skin to look pale and dull.
Be gentle with your skin, and choose an exfoliator that is easy on it. Once you have cleansed your skin, the next step is to apply your soothing hydrating serums and moisturisers.
