Dull skin has become a common problem in today’s world because of the amount of makeup that one uses on daily basis. The quality of makeup also impacts the skin condition. Moreover, other factors also affect our skin such as pollution and UV rays. The only way to protect your skin is to take good care of it.
You should take skincare seriously because:
● Your skin will glow and look youthful
Dull and rough skin doesn’t glow and due to this, you could look older than your age. Furthermore, aging is a real factor and no one can prevent it but one can slow the process of “looking older” by using skincare.
● It is easier to take care of than to correct the damage
Most of the time people only give attention to those things that are already ruined. Correcting those things will cause more headaches as it will cause more time and money.
● It will boost your confidence
When you are going to an event and you are well dressed, it will immediately give you more confidence. Similarly, when your skin looks good, you get more confidence and even you can go out bare-faced.
Skincare should be simple if you want it to be. There are some basic steps that will help your skin to get glowy and will protect it. But before starting new skincare you should know about your skin type.
Here is a basic skincare guide for beginners
Cleanser: Washing your face is an important part of your skincare routine but the cleanser that you are using should be designed for your face. An alcohol-free cleanser is preferred for dry skin. An oil-free cleanser is recommended for oily skin.
Toner: Toner helps to balance out the ph level of your skin and makes it calm.
Moisturizer: Moisturizer is important for all skin types whether you have oily or dry skin. It should be used after you wash your face every time.
Sunscreen: This is the most important part as it helps protect your skin against UV rays.
Exfoliator: It is optional but can be used once or twice a month.
Serum: It can be said as an additional skincare product. It is used for one specific reason such as acne or redness. Apart from these, one should pay attention to other factors as well such as:
Proper Hydration: Drinking enough water is the key to healthy-looking skin. One should drink around 8-10 glasses of water per day. This will not only help to improve your skin quality but will also help in keeping your organs healthy.
Say No to Smoke: Avoid smoking as much as you can as smoking speeds up the process of aging. It will also make your wounds take more time to heal.
No Stress: Stressing less can also help in improving skin conditions. Skin conditions such as eczema can appear for the first time due to stress.
If you are a beginner then starting with DIY skincare is the best thing for you. It is not only inexpensive but you can also personalize it according to your needs. A product from the market that did wonders for your friend’s dry skin could not be suitable for your oily skin. If you are trying DIY, you can be satisfied that you are not using any harsh chemicals on your skin.
Doing it yourself means that you have 100% control over the ingredients. For example: If a high quantity of lemon juice doesn’t suit your skin, you can add a small amount of it as it naturally helps to lighten your skin and makes it brighter.
Here are some top suggestions of skincare DIYs:
● Using hemp seed oil and lavender as a cleanser: Hemp seed oil is proven to work great for acne-prone skin because of its anti-inflammatory properties. People with eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis can also use it.
It doesn’t clog pores and restores skin elasticity. Lavender essential oil is antibacterial, detoxifying, and anti-inflammatory. You can combine 1 ounce of hemp seed oil with 10-12 drops of lavender oil.
● Coconut oil: Coconut oil has the same benefits as hemp seed oil but it is not recommended for oily skin as it can clog pores. It can be used to remove makeup. It can do wonders for dry skin.
● Apple Cider Vinegar and Water: ACV is considered as one of the powerful ingredients not only for weight loss but for skin too. It is antiseptic and antibacterial which can help you to get rid of your acne. Not only this, it can lighten your post-acne marks too. You can dilute it with water in a 1:2 ratio.
● 100% Calcium Bentonite Clay: It is said to be the world’s powerful clay mask as it cleanses the pores deeply. It can be mixed with either water or ACV.
Skincare should be given importance as it helps improve skin texture, dullness, and every other condition but you should also focus on cosmetic boxes. Good quality boxes not only keep your skincare product safe and protects it from breaking during delivery or traveling but also make it look attractive.
If the product’s packaging is beautifully done, the buyer will instantly become happy with his purchase. It is not the product’s quality but the exceptional packaging that gathers your attention first at the store. It is the cosmetic packaging that differentiates between products and makes them unique among all. It also makes customers loyal as good quality of packaging will make them trust more on the quality of a product.
Taking care of your skin is not a luxury but a necessity. It can be simply done in few steps and following it daily can help your skin to glow. The quality of the product’s packaging is equally important as its ingredients. It can make the product last more, saves from any breakage, and enhances its beauty. Custom cosmetic boxes make products stand out in the crowd.
