Here’s What An Everyday Basic Face Routine Should Look Like
Having poppin’ skin is a big deal. But considering how hectic life can be, we sometimes overlook the little things that do the most for our skin. At the very least, you need these basics in your bathroom – and handbag…
Always Have Face Wipes At Hand
This is basically lazy beauty. It does the job – just don’t make it a habit. Essentially, it’s for those days that exhaust the life out of you – when a trip to the bathroom to wash off your make-up is never gonna happen. A quick wipe is an excellent back-up plan. Try: Johnsons Daily Essential Face Wipes (R54.75) at Dis-chem.
Use Micellar Water To Remove Make-Up
And for those days when you’re not lazy and tired – use micellar water. You’ll thank us later, but you skin will thank you sooner. It does more then just removing make-up and dirt. It actually cleanses deeply at the same time. So it trumps wipes any day. Try: Eucerin DermoPurifyer Micellar Water (R275) at Clicks.
Use A facial Cleanser You Can Trust
Cleansing isn’t just about soap and water. A facial cleanser removes make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other pollutants from the skin, unclogging pores and preventing skin conditions like acne. Plus, it’s way gentler than soap. Try: Optiphi Facial Cleaner 150ML (R735) at Just Skin Aesthetic Clinic.
Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise
Bad skin is what happens to people who don’t moisturise. There are so many benefits to using a high-quality facial moisturiser each day. Slathering the good stuff on your face will help you look and feel younger, and you’ll have softer, more elastic, super-hydrated skin. Try: OXY Daily Moisturiser (R73) at Dis-Chem.
Mask Your Face… Often
When applying a mask, you’re taking time to focus on the health of your complexion with a product that addresses a particular concern. Whether it’s breakout control, brightening or anti-ageing, there are tons of benefits to using a face mask. Try: L’Orèal Pure Clay Rescue Mask (R160) at Dis-Chem.
