Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week! Since January is one of the colder months of the year, I thought that dropping some of my best skincare tips would help you guys out!
Side Note: I have combination skin, so I get dry spots on my chin, forehead, and cheeks, but my T-zone can be extremely oily at times. I breakout about once or twice a month due to stress/hormones, but normally I don´t get too many zits on my face. I do have extremely sensitive skin, so I can´t use anything harsh on my skin.
Moisturizing is key for your skin to look nice and soft year round. I feel like this is the step that a lot of people skip in their skincare routine because they don´t know that moisturizer is the key to hydrating your skin without looking oily! For Christmas, my mom got me the Ultra Repair Cream from First Aid Beauty and it has worked miracles on my skin. My dry patches have pretty much disappeared and it has also helped clear my eczema.
If I am ever trying a new product, which is something I avoid to not irritate my skin, I always ease my skin into the product. If it is a cleanser I use daily, I start using it once a week and slowly begin using it more and more. This helps my skin become more comfortable with products so I don´t instantly break out.
I know everyone says this, but drinking lots of water really improves your skin. It is the best way to remove harmful toxins from your skin. I always try and drink 4-5 20oz water bottles each day, and it has really helped clear my skin.
Most importantly, being consistent with your skincare is the best way to ensure improvements with your skin. You don´t need fancy products to see results, you just have to be willing to put in a little work to help your skin!
I hope you all enjoyed my tips! I tried to not recommend products since not everything will work on people, but instead give you guys some universal skincare tips that anyone with any skin type can use!
