Revive A Boring Skincare Routine With These Exciting Tips

Taking care of your skin is an essential part of a beauty routine. Without removing makeup or using a moisturizer, it will begin to crack and flake. Even worse, wrinkles and lines will appear and the signs of aging will start to show sooner rather than later. It may be winter, but the battle to save your skin never ends as the cold weather is as threatening as the warm, humid temperatures.

Washing your face daily may be a skin-saver, yet there’s no doubt it’s boring. As a result, it’s not easy to maintain the same level of consistency as usual. Take one day off and the biggest organ in the body will start to show its flaws, which is something you want to avoid for a long time.

The answer is to revive a routine with exciting methods. Then, you won’t have a dull mindset or skin. Because it can be tricky to overhaul a regimen, there are tips below for anybody who needs inspiration.

Invest In A Facial

One of the worst parts of a routine is the amount of effort it takes to complete the task. All any woman wants to do is sit down in front of the TV and put on her favorite episode of Friends; orr, it would be nice to flick through a magazine while professionals take care of the nitty-gritty. With a facial, either option is available.

DIY pastes and creams are straightforward to apply and take an hour or two to work. So, there is nothing wrong with lying on the sofa and taking the edge off for “therapeutic” reasons. If the plasma screen just happens to land on Netflix, then that’s all the better. Although they are cheap, the quality isn’t as good, nor is the process as stress-relieving than with a pro.

Go on; schedule an appointment now for the sake of your skin!


Steam Your Face

Sticking with the relaxing theme, let’s move onto a bucket of steam. Okay, that’s not a thing, but using hot water to cleanse the pores is. It may leave you a little hot under the collar, yet that’s all part of the fun. There is no way to multitask while steaming the skin, but this is an advantage in some ways. After all, you get to shut off completely.

The setup is simple: boil the kettle, pour the water into a container, and grab a flannel. Then, use the cloth to cover your face as you lean over the hot water. Think of it as going for a steam after a gym session, only with fewer naked people in the room! Keep your face over the bowl for about seven to ten minutes for the best results.

Although it sounds a little basic, the heat leaves you feeling invigorated and ready for round two.


Drink Water

Your skin needs moisture to look flawless, and the only way to keep up with the demands is to drink water. The problem is H2O is boring and not exciting whatsoever. There is no flavor and it doesn’t get the taste buds salivating like a deep glass of vino or a can of soda.

This is where flavored sparkling water brands spice things up a bit. Infused with carbonated fruit water, the taste and the texture will get you coming back for more. Plus, the majority of them don’t have any refined sugar or sweetener products, so drinking bottled, flavored water won’t result in weight gain.

Make sure you read the calorie count on the packaging before heading to the checkout.

Light It Up

Technology is advancing at a rapid pace, and the health and beauty industry is benefiting. Today, it’s possible to buy an LED light mask which, other than making you look like Hannibal Lecter, penetrates the skin at different levels. As a result, it’s thought to fight off everything from wrinkles, flat skin which isn’t moist, and acne-causing bacteria.

The way it works is quite self-explanatory once you understand the basics. The blue lights kill bad bacteria and the red ones help the body to produce collagen. The latter is how the mask plumps up flat skin. Depending on what you want to achieve, pick a color and pop it on for no longer than ten to fifteen minutes.

Yes, it is a tad expensive with some specialists charging $120 for a twenty-minute session. However, there is nothing as exciting as the novelty of the first-time experience.


If you’re committed to fighting the signs of aging, it’s time to incorporate some fun into your routine to keep it fresh.

Streamline Your Skincare Routine: What Do You REALLY Need?

Walk into any drugstore, or department store beauty aisle, and you’re absolutely bombarded with products. If you’re new to skincare, it can be a complete minefield. Not only are there all kinds of weird and wonderful things claiming all sorts, but it’s knowing how to apply them and the order to put them on too! However, skincare really doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are the essentials to create a quick regime that will do your skin the world of good- without having to spend tons of time or money on it.

Day/ Night Moisturizers

Ideally, you need two moisturizers, one for day and one for night. Day creams tend to be light and easily absorbed, you pop it on in the morning, and it will protect your skin throughout the day. If you get one with added SPF, you kill two birds with one stone! It sits well under makeup without feeling heavy or sticky on the skin. Night cream is a little more rich and hydrating. Apply it after you’ve cleansed your face and it will absorb during the night to replenish and restore your skin.

An Oil or Serum

If your skin is very dry or you want to focus on anti-aging, applying an oil or serum before your night cream is the way to go. You can buy pure hyaluronic acid for face which sounds a little scary but is actually an incredible hydration product which is perfect for fine lines and wrinkles. Argan oil is also great, and coconut oil is a very budget and practical option. You can buy it from any grocery store, a small amount will hugely hydrate the skin and will cost you next to nothing.

An Eye Cream

The delicate skin around the eyes is the most prone to damage. That’s why when the signs of aging creep in, the eyes are the first to show it. You can protect against this by using an eye cream. This will nourish and protect the area, and if you spend a little more, it will contain ingredients that will actively reduce the fine lines. Retinol and neuropeptides amongst others can help to smooth the appearance. Apply a small amount in the evenings, being very careful when you’re rubbing it in. Tugging or pulling at the skin will cause damage and you’ll end up exacerbating the problem you’re trying to solve.

A Lip Balm

When you think about skincare, it’s easy to neglect or overlook the lips. However, they need just as much (if not more) care than elsewhere on the face. The lips lose more moisture than anywhere else, which is why they can so easily become sore, chapped and flaky. Invest in a couple of lip balms containing SPF, if you keep one at home, one in the car and one at work you’ll never be caught short.

Face Masks

Every now and again your skin might need a bit of pepping up, even if you stick to your skincare routine. Perhaps it’s looking a little tired, dull and lackluster. Maybe it feels a little sore, or you just want to give it a boost of hydration. Once a week (or when needed) apply one that targets the problem. Use it as an excuse to have a little ‘me- time’ you could meditate while it’s on to reduce stress or just relax in a hot bubble bath. Your skin will thank you for it, and your mind will feel refreshed and rejuvenated too.

I was sent the Firming & Anti-Aging and the Crow's Feet & Fine Lines masks which are proven to deliver more nourishing ingredients to the deeper layer of your skin that needs it most. I tried the Firming & Anti-Aging masks which is designed to increase levels of elastin and collagen in your skin.

I applied the mask to freshly cleansed skin and left on for 45 minutes so the serum in the bio-cellulose mask was absorbed into my skin. Afterwards, I moisturized and followed my daily skin regimen. I applied the serum in the roller to freshly cleansed skin morning and night to enhance the results from the mask.

MY RESULTS

I believe my skin is already on a good track with the regimen that I already use, but my skin did feel really good and had that dewy glow afterwards. I will continue to use the Firming & Anti-Aging masks for a full month and try out the Crow's Feet & Fine Lines masks and report back to ya!
