Cosmetic Care Techniques For Skin

The cold nights are drawing in, and it is now more important than ever to keep your skin looking and feeling great. Your skin is more likely to feel dry in the winter months but following a routine of caring for your skin on a regular basis can do wonders and can keep your skin feeling soft and nourished.

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

Cleanse and tone
Use cleansing and toning 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.

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.

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.

Beauty sleep – yes that is a real thing! - 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.

Food and Drink
Eating certain foods can have an affect on the condition of your skin.  If you want to have radiant skin, you have to eat the right foods containing vitamins and nutrients with aid skin health.

You should be getting all the right vitamins and nutrients from your diet, but taking supplements can help to improve the health of your skin.

Hands are more prone to dryness due to the winter weather and other factors (e.g. hand-washing.)

Use lip balm to keep your lips moisturised day and night to keep from from cracking under the cold weather.

Using eye products such as eye cream can keep your eyes in check and free from dark circles and bags.
