How To Improve Your Skin Care Routine

Everybody’s skin can be temperamental but by paying attention to its needs and letting yourself indulge in some products and skincare tools to help you along the way, your skin will thank you forever!

There are 2 key steps which EVERYONE should know about when it comes to your skin care routine; cleanse and moisturise. It doesn’t really matter what you use, whether it’s an oil, balm or milk-based cleanser, just make sure you do it and it’s right for your skin type! You can even extend your cleansing experience by using a cleansing device – HoMedics have four styles of cleansing devices to choose from, all suitable for different skin types.

Our personal favourite is the Pureté Facial Cleanser. Most women of all ages and skin types are dissatisfied with the condition of the skin on their face. Pollution, impurities, make-up and sweat reduce the radiance and purify of your face. The revolutionary Puretè system for face care, combines 3 heads for cleansing, massage and exfoliation for a complete facial care in just 2 minutes.

For ease of use and total control, the HoMedics Purete Facial Cleansing Brush also comes with a comfort grip to ensure that you have a smarter way to cleanse and moisturise your skin better than your hands ever could!

The HoMedics Purete Facial Cleansing Brush is equipped with a charging stand for easy charging and storage. The waterproof design allows for use during your shower and bath, making it the perfect addition to your daily beauty regime.

When it comes to moisturising, once again make sure it’s right for your skin type; very dry needs a boost of Vitamin E and C, which can be found in most moisturisers formulated for dry skin. Oily skin most certainly requires an oil-free solution to help balance the natural pH and fight off acne.
 
Top Tip: those with super oily and acne-prone skin, aim to cleanse only once a day; preferably after removing makeup. Cleanser strips your skin’s natural oils so over-cleansing will cause your oil glands to over-produce hence worsening the problem!
 
You can add in some extra steps if your skin requires a little more TLC, think about investing in a good exfoliant, toner or serum. These all have benefits to improving your skins condition; anti-ageing, deep moisturisation and removal of dead skin cells. Just remember whatever you do – exfoliate NO MORE than three times a week! 
 
Looking after your skin, once you’ve nailed the products you use, should be an enjoyable and relaxing experience. Take the time to remove your makeup with care after a long day, giving yourself a mini facial massage as you apply each individual product, always working upwards to avoid dragging your skin. Take some deep breaths, engage with all your senses; it may even be the perfect time for a touch of meditation.
 

Use our Fresh Face Facial Steamer  for deep hydration using ion-rich steam, opening the deepest pores for the cleanest skin. Steam treatments are the staple facial secret to all year-round skincare. Regularly hydrating the skin lessens the damage caused by the warmer and the winter months.

Perfect for tackling dry, oily and combination skin types, the Fresh Face Facial Steamer means you can treat yourself to a salon quality facial steam treatment at home. The super fine particles reach deep into the tightest pores whilst the heat encourages them to open up, so you can gently remove blackheads and impurities without drying out your skin.

Trust us, you’ll want to stroke your skin for days afterwards!
