5 Steps to Fabulous: The beauty essentials with HoMedics
It’s officially Autumn and time to rip off the Summer calendar. Switching from summer frappes to seasonal hot drinks or witnessing Christmas decorations in shops already, may take a while to accept but hang in there because all is not lost. If you’re planning on getting your winter cosies out already, don’t forget to pamper your skin too.
With skin science constantly evolving, it can be hard to keep up with the latest skin care products and the order in which to use them. So, we’ve drafted a cheat sheet for the perfect daily five-step routine to get smooth, radiant, youthful skin. So, let’s get right into it.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!
Exfoliation is needed to combat dry skin. This way, you can strip away that dead skin sitting on the surface and clogging up your pores. HoMedics Pureté Facial Cleanser is ideal to work away the build-up of pollution, impurities, make-up and sweat on the surface of your face. If you're looking to exfoliate a little deeper, you could try the HoMedics Radiance - a simple home microdermabrasion tool. After a few skincare sessions like this, you’ll be feeling fresher, firmer and ready to step into Winter.
After a few summery months of laying it on with a light moisturiser, for the winter season consider slathering on a deep moisturising serum or an oil-based moisturiser rather than a water-based one so that your skin holds moisture on it own.
Pick a hand lotion for the colder months
Keeping your hands supple and soft can be difficult because they feel the weather more than most parts of our exposed skin because it is so thin. Protect them with warm gloves while stepping out and choose a hand cream that helps to protect and repair the impact of cold weather.
Rejuvenate your skin with essential oils
Using a carrier oil like coconut oil, olive oil or grapeseed oil, you can add a few drops of essential oil to really nourish your skin. Make sure your essential oil is 100% therapeutic grade! To soothe the dryness of the winter months, a few drops of lavender or patchouli oil will soften those dry patches right up.
No matter what, dress up, make up and show up!
If you find yourself having a bad day mentally, one of the ways of feeling better is to play dressing up! Get those straighteners out, put up your favourite make up on and show up in style. Remember, the key is to be strong.
Routine add-ons and substitutes
Just like with clothes and shoes, one size doesn’t necessarily fit all when it comes to skin care. Your routine can be modified based on your skin type and general concerns.
