Beauty Hacks with Beeautify
Skincare can be quite overwhelming when it comes to achieving the perfect glow. There are a million products out there that can help you achieve healthy, clear and radiant skin. However, it is how you use those products and their key ingredients that make the biggest difference to your daily routine. Here are a few beauty hacks to consider:
1. WASH WITH WARM, RINSE WITH COLD
When you wash your skin with warm water it gives the pores a chance to open up and release the impurities that have been trapped inside. Warm water helps soften up the skin allowing the active ingredients in the products to penetrate and cleanse the skin. Rinse off with cold water; as this helps to close the pores and to lock in the natural ingredients for the layers below to soak up.
2. CLEANSE TWICE TO MAKE IT NICE!
Double cleansing plays a crucial role in naturally healthy skin. Not only does it give you peace of mind knowing your skin is squeaky clean, free of dirt and bacteria but this process also helps you cleanse for longer without even realising it! Essentially you need about 60 seconds for a cleanser to properly work its magic. However, sometimes this can feel like an eternity – by double cleansing you are cutting that time in half for each cleanse making your skin thrive to its full potential.
Putting your products on right before bedtime seems like the easiest way but essentially your pillowcase is benefiting from these ingredients more than you are. Most skincare products take around 20 minutes to completely soak into the layers of the skin. Give yourself at least an hour before slipping into your silky sheets.
4. CHANGE YOUR PILLOWCASE MORE THAN YOU THINK!
Your pillowcase is your best friend so let’s treat it that way! Leaving your pillowcases for too long harbours an environment for bacteria to grow. This bacteria is then resting against your beautiful skin for more than 7 hours at night leading to further breakouts, skin sensitivities and more. If changing your pillowcases regularly isn’t an easy habit to break, try laying a soft cloth or towel over the front cover to help ease your skin into a new routine.
5. SIMPLE IS BEST
Creating a simple routine is creating simple needs for your skin. Less is more when it comes to allowing your skin to enjoy each one of the unique ingredients in your skin products and for them to be actively working from within. Narrowing it down to a cleanser, serum, regular mask and moisturiser allow for each ingredient to work its way through the layers.
Skincare is more than skin deep; it requires attention to the natural elements around us in order for it to act to its full potential.
