THE ULTIMATE LOCKDOWN SKINCARE GUIDE

Aside from the products that you are going to use, it is important to religiously follow the process of how to put these products in the proper order. There are five important steps that you don’t want to skip for the best effects. We also feature our Lockdown Special Beauty In A Box to make your skincare process much easier. 

Step 1 – Cleanse

To clean our face is the most important part of our skincare. We have to cleanse our faces before we put any other products in order to maximise their effects. There are several benefits to using a cleanser before using any other products on your face. Some of the benefits are as follows:

  1. Using cleansers clear up any oil excess build-up for healthier and smoother skin
  2. Cleansers sweep away dry and dead skin cells, revealing a fresh layer of skin for a natural glow.
  3. It also helps in stimulating blood circulation and in boosting blood flow to your face for glowing skin.
  4. Cleansers help in making your skin look younger and help fight any signs of aging.
  5. Most importantly, it helps your other skincare products penetrate properly into the skin.

Step 2 – Exfoliate

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost layer. It can be done mechanically like using Microdermabration or better still Hydrodermabration, or chemically using exfoliators, peels or leave-on treatments. Regardless of your age or skin type, regular exfoliation is important to ensure your skin is fresh and free of pore-clogging debris. However, you also have to take into account the type of skin you have and its condition.

You have to make sure that the exfoliants you use are fit to your skin type and condition. Here are the benefits of exfoliating:

  1. It helps to fade age spots by removing dead, dry skin cells that contain pigment.
  2. It unclogs pores, releasing built-up oils on your skin.
  3. Exfoliation reduces pore size and the appearance of acne scars, improving skin texture. 
  4. It renders fine lines and makes wrinkles less visible. 
  5. It also allows for better absorption of skincare products such as moisturisers, serums, acne treatments and more.

Step 3 – Tone

Facial toners are designed by helping to temporarily minimize the appearance of pores creating a smoother-looking appearance. Toners also help to clean dirt, oils and other impurities more efficiently than cleansers alone and leave the skin better protected against environmental stressors. By adding face toner to your everyday skincare routine, it can be the key to a more radiant, refreshed look.

There are several benefits in using toners and some are as follows:

  1. Toners help in minimizing the appearance of pores.
  2. It helps protect your skin by restoring pH balance..
  3. It temporarily firms and tightens your skin.
  4. Toners are actually super refreshing to use.
  5. When you use toners, it actually soothes your skin.
  6. It helps to remove any residue left behind from  cleanser or exfoliator.
  7. It aids the skin in retaining moisture.

Step 4 – Moisturise

Moisturising is more than just adding extra moisture to your skin. There are reasons why it is important to use a moisturiser that is fit for your skin type and condition. Here are detailed explanations of why we should complete our skincare routine with a moisturiser.

  1. Moisturisers Prevent Dryness – whatever the type of weather you are currently in, it actually drains out moisture right out of your skin. So, using the best moisturiser that is fit for your skin, not only replaces the moisture that has already been lost but it helps prevent future loss of moisture.
  2. Moisturisers Slow The Signs of Aging – It is a well-known fact in the beauty industry that hydrated skin reduces the signs of ageing. Moisturisers also help Fight Acne – When your skin gets dry, this sends a message to your glands to produce more oil which may clog your pores that can lead to a breakout.

So, if your skin is properly hydrated, this helps in stopping your skin from producing more oil than it needs.

3. Moisturisers Soothe Sensitive Skin – Sensitive skin needs extra special care. So, it is best to look for a moisturiser with ingredients that are fit for your sensitive skin. Some of which are aloe vera, chamomile, and honey to name a few.
