As skincare becomes a bigger and bigger part of the beauty industry, and we’re all scrambling to get a 7 step skincare routine down, one question comes up a lot. How do I get flawless skin? It isn’t an exact science, and will vary slightly from person to person. However, there are a few things that apply to us all, and we’ve put them together in this easy guide.
One of the easiest ways to get flawless skin is to cleanse properly. This may sound obvious to some, but this is one of the biggest mistakes people make with their skincare. Your cleanser is the first step in making sure that all the dirt and impurities are out of your skin, and provides the base for your serums and creams, which will enrich your skin with nutrients and vitamins to help it stay strong and healthy.
Use a good mask
Face masks are holy grail beauty products that can give your skin a much deeper cleanse than a standard daily cleanser, and draw out dirt that sits deeper in the skin. They can be key in achieving that flawless look, and can brighten and clear the skin. And with so many to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect mask for your skin.
Hydration is key
Drinking water is such an important part of keeping your skin healthy. Your skin is an organ, and water keeps it hydrated from the inside, and can help maintain the skin’s natural barrier. Aim for 2 litres a day to keep your skin plump and soft.
Invest in a good serum
Finding the right serum can transform your skin, and take it from average to flawless. Depending on your skin type and needs, serums can be used to target particular skin problems, whether its pigmentation, dryness or blemishes. Serums are great for packing a potent punch of antioxidants and nutrients to your skin. Remember to apply first after cleansing so your serums can really get to work and produce the best results.
Get regular facial treatments
If you can, getting regular facial treatments can be a great way to keep your skin clean and looking flawless. Facials have massively changed with the introduction of technology, with specialists able to use a range of different tools to keep your skin in check. You can opt for the traditional facial, or try out a microdermabrasion treatment – on the advice of your skin therapist of course.
Obviously this is realistic for everyone, but have a look at the at home microdermabrasion kits, I love mine!
Seek professional help
For those of you who have stubborn skin issues that just won’t go away, it may be time to seek professional advice. Making an appointment with a dermatologist or esthetician may be the next step in understanding the science under your skin. Their wide range of knowledge on the subject, plus access to the best treatments and resources will hopefully be the key to unlocking that flawless skin you’ve always wanted.
So there you have it, our best tips for achieving flawless skin.
