Skin care tip #1: Wear SPF, rain or shine, 365 days a year
Even if it’s cloudy, your skin is still exposed to UV rays, and UV exposure can increase the process of skin aging by contributing to the development of fine lines and wrinkles and age spots. This is why one of the most important skin care tips you should follow is making SPF a part of your daily skin care routine. Look for a facial oil, serum, tinted moisturizer, or day cream with SPF broad-spectrum protection. A day cream such as the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Day Lotion SPF 30 protects your face and neck and can also be layered under makeup.
Skin care tip #2: Cleanse twice a day
Your skin’s beauty comes down to the attention and love you show it. This is the reason the basic foundation of beautiful skin is keeping your complexion clean and healthy-looking. The goal with this skin beauty tip is to cleanse the skin of built-up oils, dirt, makeup, and pollutants morning and night. However, it’s important to do so without stripping the skin of the natural oils it needs. You can also elevate your evening routine with a round of double cleansing. As the name suggests, double cleansing is all about washing your face with a no-rinse cleanser, then following up with a rinse-off offering. Set the stage with the L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ All Skin Types Makeup Removing Towelettes. Then, follow-up by cleansing your face with your regular cleanser for a deep clean. It’s that easy.
Skin care tip #3: Slough away dead skin cells
When it comes to achieving your skin care goals, adding a round of exfoliation into the mix is an absolute must. Exfoliation works to slough away dead skin cells, which helps your skin look its best. This is something that all skin types can benefit from. You just have to be sure not to overdo it to keep your skin in order. Some skin types can handle everyday exfoliation, while others can only tolerate it once a week. Pay attention to your skin to see what works for you.
One of the best ways to go about exfoliating your skin is to rely on a gentle face scrub. Try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Kiwi Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Grapeseed Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Resurface & Energize Kona Coffee Scrub. These offerings are formulated with pure sugars that work to refresh and balance your skin.
Skin care tip #4: Moisturize—No Matter Your Skin Type
You need to replenish your beautiful skin with the moisture it loses every day, and this is true regardless of your skin type. Yep, even oily skin needs moisture.
Moisturizing should always be an important part of your skin care routine, but it becomes increasingly essential as you age because your skin’s natural oil production will decrease. Be sure to layer your skin with moisturizer, day and night. Try the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Normal/Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Extra Dry Skin. Each moisturizer is formulated with aloe vera water and hyaluronic acid to provide skin with long-lasting hydration.
Skin care tip #5: Drink water
Hydrating on the inside can be just as important as hydrating on the outside when it comes to your skin’s beauty. Drinking water throughout the day can also keep your body better hydrated, making it one of the most important skin care tips.
Skin care tip #6: Stop Picking at Your Skin
Picking and touching your skin will only make it more vulnerable to blemishes and breakouts. Your hands can transfer dirt and germs to your face and clog your pores. Keep your hands away from your face to foster fresh, beautiful skin.
Skin care tip #7: Remove makeup at night
If there is one thing you should always do before catching some Zs, removing your makeup lands at the top of the list. Makeup can mix with dirt, oil, and other impurities overnight and cause blemishes to become a factor. Play it safe and use a makeup remover like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser – All Skin Types. This no-rinse cleanser effectively removes makeup without over-drying your skin. Saturate a cotton pad with micellar water and wipe it over your skin until clean.
