A brand-new year is always a great time to change, renew, and rejuvenate ourselves. It gives us the opportunity to focus on the future and all the wonderful possibilities that lie ahead. Regardless of the resolution you make, we usually all try in some way to improve our habits, lifestyles or appearances. One example of a highly beneficial resolution is to commit towards maintaining a good skincare routine. Knowing that your skin is clean, vibrant and healthy works wonders in starting the year right. But just what are the fundamentals to a good skincare routine?
Getting your skin ready
One of the world’s leading skincare brands, ZO® Skin Health, advocates a simple skincare routine which includes cleansing, exfoliating and toning. The brand is committed to restoring your skin back to its most healthy, balanced state, regardless of your skin type which starts with using the ZO® GSR Getting Skin Ready system. This three-step approach may include the Exfoliating Cleanser, Exfoliating Polish and TE-Pads. The cleanser gently removes surface debris from the skin for a clear complexion, while the exfoliating polish exfoliates dead skin cells to create a clear, smooth and even toned complexion. The TE-Pads control oiliness and deep clean congested pores.
The combination of these three fundamental skincare steps, allow for a healthy, vibrant and smoother looking skin. As the pioneer in linking science and skin health, ZO® Skin Health ensures that it uses the best of what science has to offer in improving our skin’s natural functions. ZO® GSR Getting Skin Ready provides the base for other ZO® skincare products to work effectively and to help optimise the results of your skincare routine.
Sunscreen – another fundamental
Another fundamental element of a good skincare routine is an effective sunscreen to protect the skin from free radicals and environmental stressors. There is a multitude of excellent sunscreen products available on the market and if they defend against harmful UVA, UVB and other forms of harsh light, you know you’re in safe hands. If you go another step further and add effective sun protection to your make-up repertoire, you know that your routine is a step above the rest.
Effective sun protection and coverage
Colorescience® is another leading brand that marries science with healthy skin and skincare. One of its signature products, which should be an essential in anyone’s routine, is the Sunforgettable® Brush-On Sunscreen. This powder sunscreen provides powerful SPF30 UVA/UVB protection as well as a sheer, natural-looking coverage alone or over make-up. Easy to use on the go, this sunscreen should also be reapplied every two hours and comes in a variety of shades to suit your unique skin tone.
There certainly is no shortage of superior products out there to include in your daily skincare routine. And by doing so, you will have peace of mind that your skincare products are enhancing and maintaining your overall skin health. What better way to start your year off right?
