In a Skincare Rut? How to Bounce Back
It's not uncommon to occasionally take a misstep or briefly abandon your regular skincare routine. However, there's no need to be hard on yourself because it's easy to get back on your game. Here is our easy step-by-step guide to renewing your skin's health and glow inside out.
Utilize Rest Time
Giving you skin some well-needed rest time isn’t always negative; this period can produce positive results. When you stop your skincare routine, your body is able to take in more oxygen, which aids in the redevelopment of elastin, collagen, and sebum. You will notice sebum when your skin looks oily, but this actually acts as a shield against bacteria and leads to a hydration boost in the skin.
Ease Back Into
If you haven’t donned a full face in a while or used a facial cleanser, it is common to see breakouts when you return to your routine. Don’t panic. Instead, focus on using 100% organic products that will clear your pores and help to fight against breakouts long-term. As you get started, try to implement products containing highly detoxifying ingredients such as spirulina and pineapple.
When getting back into skincare or just starting, developing a simple routine of go-to products that work for your skin provides a helpful kickstart. These routines will give you structure with your skincare and help you discover which products that you love. From there, you can mix and match to create your own routine once you have gotten the regime down.
It can be daunting returning to something you haven’t done in a while. But you’ve done it before and you can easily do it again. Follow these tips to get back to where you were in your skincare routine and start seeing radiant results
