We give you 13 beauty tips that should be kept in mind to incorporate them into our daily care routine
Having radiant skin is not achieved overnight, it is the result of a beauty routine that must be followed constantly and rigorously. We all know the basics: getting enough sleep, avoiding stress, exercising, and eating a balanced and varied diet. These ingredients of a healthy life, together with the use of products adapted for your skin, is the best recipe to show off your best face.
January is the month of making resolutions. We start the year and we want to change the less healthy habits of our day to day. To the classics of quitting smoking or joining the gym, from Vozpópuli we encourage you to add the following purposes that, if you comply, will give their results in a few days.
I will cleanse the skin every night (and in the morning)
Cleaning is the most important step in the beauty routine, if the skin is not clean, you will not get it to be radiant and beautiful. At night, if you have used makeup, it is best to do a double cleaning. The first would be with an oil-based product that removes the remains of cosmetics. Then we would carry out a new cleaning with another water-based product.
Cleaning in the morning can be much faster, just use a micellar water before using our daily cream.
I will use a good tonic
Toner is always important, but even more so if you have sensitive skin. With it we will be able to balance the PH and avoid that uncomfortable feeling of tightness that many people suffer after cleaning. The cosmetic expert Rocío Escalante, owner of Arbosana Farmacia and co-founder of Laghum Cosmetics, advises applying it by tapping, even with your fingers, leaving it for a few seconds and continuing with the usual treatment.
I'll look at the eye area
The skin around the eyes is thinner and more sensitive, and that is why, from the age of 25-30 it is advisable to use a specific product for this area. It must be used morning and evening and is applied gently with the ring finger to stimulate microcirculation in this area.
The first wrinkles to appear are crow's feet
Keep in mind that the first wrinkles that appear are crow's feet due to the special sensitivity of this area, so do not think that fighting wrinkles is something only for mature people and start using eye contour before reaching the age of 30.
I will choose a special serum for my skin
The serum is not an essential product in our beauty routine, but if we want to achieve the best skin it is totally recommended. We are going to find many types in the market, so we must first be clear about what we are looking for with their use. If you want to protect your skin from free radicals, you will need to use a vitamin C serum in the morning. If your skin is dry and you want to strengthen the skin barrier, add a hydrating serum. If you have flaccidity, there are serums with a lifting effect. For stains, a depigmenting agent. For oily or combination skin prone to acne, a sebum-regulating serum, etc. It is best to consult with a specialist to recommend which one is perfect for your skin type.
I will hydrate my skin daily
Hydration is the step that will help you have healthy, beautiful, luminous and radiant skin. In addition, hydration helps prevent skin aging, especially the appearance of wrinkles. You have to choose a cream that is suitable for your skin, so that it does not cause shine throughout the day or you do not notice uncomfortable skin as the hours go by. There are a lot of moisturizing creams, and also some offer a plus, for example, they have sun filters or a contribution of color that help you look good in one step.
Hydration has to go beyond our face, apply cream all over your body after showering and always carry a travel product with you in case you need an extra contribution throughout the day.
I will protect myself from the sun
Sun protection is mandatory all year round; all we have to do is adapt to each moment. It is not the same protection that we will use in winter as on our beach vacations; It will not be the same if our work forces us to be abroad as if we do it in an office.
Smartphone light is also harmful to our skin
Whatever your case, the sun is responsible for 80% of skin aging, so fighting its harmful effects is more than important. In addition, the latest studies are revealing that it is not the only harmful light for our face. The damages of blue light, emitted by computers or smartphones, are also harmful to our skin.
I will pamper my skin at night
While we sleep, our body is resting but our cells do not stop working regenerating our skin. That is why the night is one of the best times to dedicate ourselves to our skin and perform beauty treatments. The most important thing is to detect the problem that worries us the most, acne, wrinkles, spots, etc., and ask specialists for the best treatment to combat it.
I will reserve a day for special care
There are products whose use is not necessary on a daily basis; such as masks or scrubs. Therefore, it is best to choose a day of the week and reserve it to apply these extra products for our skin.
I will use conditioner or mask
The hair, like the face, needs extra hydration in winter, since the low temperatures, the heating and the use of dryers and straighteners make it dry more. After washing it, use a hair mask at least once a week. Remember to always apply it from medium to ends. On days that you don't use a mask, apply conditioner, especially if you have long hair and it tends to tangle easily.
I will take care of my hands
Do not forget that hands are, next to the face, our calling card, and if they are not well cared for, they immediately reveal age due to spots and wrinkles. Use a hand cream regularly and especially in winter since the cold is a very aggressive agent for them.
I will eat more fruits and vegetables
Your body and skin need vitamins and the foods that are full of them are fruits and vegetables. Experts recommend five daily intakes, that means that you should include a piece of fruit and / or a serving of vegetables in all main meals.
I'll drink (more) water
The human body is made up of 60% water, which is why it is so important to hydrate. Water or infusions are the drinks that provide us with the most hydration. The advice of our expert Rocío Escalante is that you never leave the house without bringing a bottle of water with you.
I will do sports
You have to lead an active life and exercise daily. But sport does not always have to be linked to the gym, choose an activity that you like like dancing, swimming or yoga. If that doesn't convince you either, there are many tricks to activate our body such as not using the elevator or getting off one stop earlier and walking the last stretch of the way to work.
As we are flooded with brands and beauty products, we always recommend that you let yourself be advised by an expert. If the problem is significant, such as rosacea, acne or dermatitis, you should go to a dermatologist. If you don't have any serious problems, a visit to the pharmacy is enough.
If you or your clients find that a ketogenic meal plan is difficult to follow all of the time, another option is a cyclical ketogenic diet. This involves following a ketogenic approach five days a week as opposed to all seven. On a cyclical Ketogenic diets, the carbs on off days increases to 50 percent. Protein remains around the same at 25 percent and fat drops to 25 percent as well. This enables your body to produce ketone bodies on your diet days but also gives you a couple of days to eat more of the foods you enjoy.
