How to look after your skin at home

Our head aesthetician, Juliet, has some handy tips to make sure your skin stays in perfect shape while you don't have immediate access to specialist facial treatments.

 

1. Increase vitamin and antioxidant intake

Choose a good skin supplement for your specific skin concerns or just choose a good all-rounder if you want to keep your skin well nourished. To help you choose the best supplement for you, we've compiled this handy guide.

 

2. Cleanse your skin

Cleansers are the first step in your skincare regime and should be used each time before applying other products.They will remove impurities and dirt from your skin and unclog pores. It's important to choose a good cleanser that is gentle to your skin, yet effective against residue.

 

3. Replenish with vitamin A & C serums

Vitamin A stimulates new skin cell growth which is important to ensure your skin doesn't become overly dry. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that aids in your skin's regeneration process. Vitamin infused serums play an important role in keeping your skin radiant and smooth. They also help tighten your skin to reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You can find the right serum for you on our website.

 

4. Hydrate your skin

It's important to choose a moisturiser that helps lock the moisture in your skin. They aid in protecting and nourishing your skin throughout the day and during the night. Moisturisers help smoothing your skin and are often necessary before applying make-up.

 

5. Use sunscreen to protect from UVA/UVB rays

Even when you don't come outside much it is still important to provide your skin with a protective barrier against UVA/UVB rays. Visible light comes through windows in your house and in your car, which will also contribute to ageing.

A good broad-spectrum sunscreen helps neutralise both UVA and UVB rays and the influences of natural light on your skin. SPF is arguably one of the most important steps in an anti-ageing skincare regime.

 

6. Hydrate and choose healthy food options

Let's be honest. The most important part of a healthy lifestyle which will undoubdedly reflect positively on your skin, is the intake of necessary and pure nutrients in the form of fruits and vegetables. When you don't leave the home often it is definitely important to increase your vitamin intake by eating more greens. Vitamins help your physique, energy levels, organ functions and skin altogether whilst helping your body fight off infections and diseases.

It's equally important to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to provide your body and your skin with moisture. Moisture in your skin will help plumping and reducing the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.
