Adding This to Your Routine Could Result in Glowing Skin

Adding This to Your Routine Could Result in Glowing Skin

For many years now, we have been led to believe that the best way to achieve a flawless, glowing complexion, is to slap on just about every superhero serum you can get your hands on. From vitamin C to retinol and hyaluronic acid to ceramides, the beauty industry would have us believe that providing we're applying the right ingredients, our skin will be forever young.

 

With that in mind, it makes sense that when we all found ourselves with a little more time on our hands in 2020, we started investing in our skincare routines more so than ever. We filled our bathroom cabinets up with whatever lotions and potions had come recommended to us and applied serum after serum and mask after mask as part of our quest to achieve perfectly balanced, healthy-looking skin.

But after many months of slathering on every skincare product that has come our way, skin experts are preaching a very important message for 2021: It's time to slow things down again. Instead of buying up every miracle-promising product that comes onto our radar, it's time to not only buy, but also apply more thoughtfully, and slower at that. It turns out, patience is a crucial ingredient in the recipe for great, glowing skin. In order to suss out exactly how we should be slowing down our skincare routines in order to reap the best benefits, here are some of skincare tops from in-the-know experts.

1. Focus on your cleanse

Before you even get around to applying your active ingredients in the form of serums and moisturisers, it's important to make sure your skin is thoroughly cleansed. Sadly, this means more than just swiping a micellar-soaked cotton pad over your face. "Cleansing is an important step to ensure dirt, debris, sweat and makeup are adequately removed. You should wash your face twice a day, for 30 seconds,".

2. Wait between layers

While opting for single-ingredient serums and layering them up to make the perfect skincare cocktail seems like a great idea on paper, in reality, it's not always the most effective treatment—especially if you're rushing. "Layering product without allowing time for absorption can affect the concentration or activity of certain ingredients. It can be problematic when it comes to mixing ingredients that deal with hydration. "It is important to follow instructions to ensure humectants (like hyaluronic acid, which draws moisture to the skin) are placed before occlusives (like oils, which prevent water loss from the skin)." The simple rule to tackle all of these issues? Allow 30 seconds between each product layer for satisfactory absorption.

3. Experiment with CBD

While it is important to ensure all products are fully absorbed before reaching for the next, when it comes to CBD in, there is more importance. Of course, if you want to reap the full potential from your CBD products, you should wait as long as possible before applying the next as to not lessen its potency.
