Why I Love Skincare (And You Should, Too!)

Looking after your skin is by far one of the most important things you will learn to do.

It will help with an array of skin problems, most of which are avoidable if you know what to do and what to look out for.

If you’re a beauty junkie like me then hopefully looking after your skin can show you how much more amazing that Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation glides on 🙂

SO here’s why I love skincare.

1. Reduces the Likely Hood of Skin Cancers

Use

  • Sunscreen. Check out my post here for more info.

Act

Slip, slop, slap, seek, slide. Wear clothes that will protect your skin from the sun, wear a hat, sunglasses and seek shade. Schedule annual skin check ups with your doctor so a pair of trained eyes can access your skin under a microscope. If you find any unusual lesions on your skin, seek medical attention ASAP.

2. Prevent Aging and Wrinkles

Use

  • Sunscreen
  • Moisturiser

Pro Tip: Protect the moisture skin barrier at all costs! Keep your skin well hydrated by moisturising day and night.

3. Stop Acne and Potential Future Breakouts

Use

  • Gentle cleansers
  • AHA and BHA products
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Moisturisers
  • Retinoids
  • Safe essential oils (diluted with water)
  • Emollients

Act

Create some time out just for you where you can spend 10 min or so focusing on your skincare routine. Always patch test new products and introduce them one at a time to ensure you catch the culprit if you do have a breakout.

4. Fight Post Inflammatory Hyper Pigmentation/Acne Scars

Use

  • Sunscreen
  • Moisturiser
  • Retinoids
  • Vitamin E

Act

Seek medical advice from a professional if you’re unhappy with your skin’s current condition. Medicine may be an option for you.
