Skincare is important but its also important that you get the most out of your products and that you know how and when to use products that are recommended or given to you. At SkinGen we pride ourselves in making every product with the idea of helping everyone look and feel beautiful, so here are a couple of tips on what products to use and how to use them to help you get ready in the morning.
1.Gentle Wash to remove makeup
Before applying any product on your face it is always a good idea to wet a face towel and gently wash your face to remove any sleep debris or makeup that didn't come off the night before. By washing your face twice a day you are helping cleanse your skin and assist the products in removing impurities that might be present in your skin layers. Additionally already having a wet face will help you with step two of getting ready
While there are many types of cleansers we suggest using a gel cleanser in the morning and leaving the masks and foams until before bed. Why? Because cleansers such as foam and clay often deeply cleanse your skin and leave it looking raw and feeling a little bit sensitive. A Gel Cleanser in the morning effectively cleanses your skin without the feeling of the skin being stripped away helping you look fresh for the morning. A gel cleanser is also a perfect way to reduce breakouts as often gel cleansers target and removes excess oil from your pores.
Skin tonics are a must-have in your cupboard because they help your skin set up for the day. In particular, the right skin tonic will balance your skin's pH to normal levels reducing pigmentation and breakouts while also minimising the size of your pores to stop dirt from being trapped. Everyone should use a tonic in the morning when getting ready because it prepares the skin for topical applications such as makeup and moisturisers. Thus, it helps your look stay fresh and doesn't let the makeup sink into your pores.
4. Eye Cream
Eye cream is often a missed step from young and avid skincare enthusiasts and it shouldn't be because it is one of the most helpful products on the market. Eye cream, when used correctly, can help hydrate the skin surrounding the eye and boost collagen production effectively removing bags or signs of tiredness. It is an important step to your morning routine because it moisturises the eye area without irritation and prepares it for makeup application. As aforementioned it is also important to use this product in your youth, even when it is advertised to the older generation because it helps with skin elasticity which will help make you look younger, brighter and refreshed for longer.
This is the most important step before heading out in the day, even if you are not wearing makeup. Moisturiser hydrates the skin and often will have an amount of SPF included to help with skin protection during your exposure throughout the day. Moisturiser also helps camouflage and reduce impurities, blemishes and pigmentations that may become present on your skin. Additionally, if you do wear makeup applying moisturiser before the application will assist the makeup in staying fresh and not setting into your face.
After moisturising, you are ready to apply makeup or head out for the day looking great and knowing that your skin is feeling even better. At SkinGen we want you to experience the best in skincare so make sure to check out our online store of amazing products or find a stockist near you.
