Cosmetic Care Techniques For Skin

I previously wrote about how I take care of my skin in winter but skincare is important all year round.
It is always important than ever to keep you skin looking and feeling great.  Your skin is more likely to feel dry in the winter months but following a routine for caring for your skin on a regular basis can do wonders and can keep your skin feeling soft and moisturised all year round.

Here are some cosmetic care techniques on how to keep your skin looking and feeling awesome.

Cleanse and tone
Use cleansing wipes or cleansing lotions every night before you go to bed.  Cleansing, scrubbing and exfoliating helps to get rid of dirt, grit and make-up, cleans your pores, and keeps your skin clear and fresh.  I use fragrance free baby wipes - yes baby wipes - from Superdrug because these are just as good as branded cleansing wipes, but sometimes I use Simple Cleansing Wipes.

Moisturising is a vital part of a skin care regimen, and creams, serums and oils are the best products to use to moisturise the skin and keep your skin feeling soft, supple and smooth.  I use Superdrug Vitamin E All Over Body Cream or Superdrug Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Butter.

Water is important for your health, let alone skincare.  Your body is made of of 60% water so keep it that way! Drink plenty of water through the day as it cleanses your system of toxins and in turn keeps your skin looking fresh.  I dink a lot of herbal tea in order to detox.

Beauty sleep is a vital part of a cosmetic skincare routine.  When you sleep, you skin goes through a process of cellular renewal, damage repair and preparation for the next day.  This is important because this process helps to restore the skin to a healthy state, so aim for 7-10 hours of sleep a night.  I love sleep and I aim to get 7 to 11 hours of sleep a night.

I use lip balm to keep my lips moisturised and to keep them from cracking.  Good lip balms to use are Rimmel London's Keep Calm Lip Balm (2.99 each), Maybelline Baby Lips (2.99 each), Nivea Lip Fruity Shine Strawberry (£2.49) and NYC Applelicious Lip Balm (£2.49 each.)
