Your face is the first thing people see, the way you express yourself. Having a great skincare routine can build your confidence! Sadly, it is one of the most important parts of you day and it is often done incorrectly, not at all, or with terrible amounts of chemicals.
How many steps are in your skincare routine? Three? Two? If you wash and moisturize you are missing out on the benefits of some important steps! The recommended skincare routine contains at least five steps. Don’t let that scare you because it can all be done in about seven minutes 🙂
Why do we need a skin care routine?
Over the course of time, our skin regenerated and the top layer falls off, or flakes off. This is completely natural is happens to everyone from birth. Not just our faces, but our entire bodies. So why is it important to have a skin care routine? When you are younger, the skin cell regeneration rate is very high with a turn over of a few days. As we get older, those pesky dead skin cells cling on as long as possible (sometimes weeks at a time if not addressed), leaving our skin looking dull, dirty, and well, old. Practicing your routine twice daily allows you to remove any dead cells that just won’t let go, leaving your skin looking smooth and supple.
