As the saying goes, ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,’ and this is certainly true when it comes to skincare and overall health.

 

Developing a routine that caters to your needs can be a game-changer. In this latest blog post, we explore the importance of routine in skincare and health, plus the benefits of using Epsom Salt to look after your skin…

 

Why is a routine important?

Establishing a routine is essential for many reasons. Firstly, it provides structure to your day, ensuring that you allocate time to your self-care. This way, you are less likely to neglect your skin, body or mind, which can lead to health issues.

In addition, sticking to a skincare routine will allow you to track your progress and identify any changes in your skin. For example, if you experience breakouts, you can quickly identify the potential triggers and take action to prevent further flare-ups.

Last but not least, incorporating healthy habits into your daily routine can have a positive impact on your overall health. A consistent routine will help you develop habits that can reduce stress, boost your mood and enhance your overall wellbeing – a win-win.

 

Using Epsom Salt for skincare

Epsom Salt is a popular ingredient in skincare products, and for a good reason. Not only is it an excellent exfoliant and detoxifier, it’s also affordable and our luxury Epsom Salt won’t break the bank.

Benefits of using Epsom Salt for skincare include”

  • Exfoliation: Removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores is a process that promotes cell regeneration, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth.
  • Acne treatment: Epsom Salt has antibacterial properties that help reduce inflammation and redness associated with acne. It also helps to absorb excess oil, unclog pores and balance the skin’s pH levels.
  • Soothes sunburn: Because Epsom Salt helps reduce inflammation and relieves pain, it’s great in calming skin if you’re unlucky to get a spot of sunburn. It also helps to rehydrate the skin, promoting healing.
  • Foot soak: Use the salts to soothe tired, achy feet after a long hard day or when you’ve been taking part in sport.

If you’re at a loss as to what a skincare routine should look like, here are a couple of suggestions for daytime and evening:

 

In the morning…

Cleanser: Start by cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser to remove any dirt or oil that may have accumulated overnight.

Toner: Follow up with a toner to balance your skin’s pH levels and prepare it for the next steps in your skincare routine.

Serum: Apply a serum that targets your specific skin concerns, such as dark spots, fine lines, or uneven texture. Serums contain potent ingredients that can penetrate deeply into your skin and provide lasting benefits.

Eye Cream: Apply a nourishing eye cream to the delicate skin around your eyes to keep it hydrated and prevent the appearance of fine lines.

Moisturiser: Finish off with a moisturiser to lock in all the benefits of your skincare routine and keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.

Evening Skincare Routine:

Cleanser: Start by cleansing your face to remove any makeup, dirt or oil that may have accumulated throughout the day.

Toner: Follow with a toner to balance your skin’s pH levels and prepare it for the next steps in your routine.

Retinol: Apply a retinol cream to your face to promote cell turnover, reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve skin texture. Retinol should only be used at night, as it can increase sensitivity to sunlight.

Eye Cream: Apply a nourishing eye cream to the delicate skin around your eyes to keep it hydrated and prevent the appearance of fine lines.

Moisturiser: Finish off with a moisturiser to lock in all the benefits of your skincare routine and keep your skin hydrated throughout the night.

 

Remember, consistency is key when it comes to skincare. Stick to this routine for at least a month to see visible improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance.
