Your skin is actually the body’s largest integumentary organ, so it would be unwise to do anything other than care for it with a consistent routine. Your skin faces challenges, like harsh abrasion, pollution, sunlight and detergents that can thin and weaken the structure of your skin.
Skin plays a key role in protecting against pathogens and excessive water loss while providing insulation, temperature regulation, sensation, synthesis of vitamin D, and the protection of vitamin B. As such, there are multiple benefits of having a consistent skin care routine.
Skin which is well taken care of protected, nourished and preserved against oxidisation, pollution, UV rays and other lifestyle and environmental elements will remain healthier for longer therefore the ageing process will slow down.
Proper skin care is vital if you’re concerned about your physical appearance. Unhealthy skin will leave you with a sallow and dull complexion, whereas healthy skin appears full and vibrant. Wrinkles develop much easier and deeper if your skin is dehydrated and unhealthy, and it can result in uneven skin tone. When skin is unhealthy it loses elasticity, which can make it sag and appear thin, also makes you appear “old”. As you get older, you will probably notice that your skin is not as radiant and vibrant.
The basic items you will need for your own skin care routine are cleanser, toner, exfoliator, mask, moisturizer and a good sunscreen. Each product focuses on one particular aspect of healthy skin. You can also add more specialized supplements and products such as serums for eyes, neck and décolleté. Adding facial treatments to your skincare regime could lead to much quicker results.
Make sure you choose the correct products for your skin type.
