6 Helpful Ways to Refresh Your Beauty Routine
Keep changing your routine to maintain healthy skin
If you’re bored of your current beauty routine and want to add a little zing to your life, follow Tips and Toes training manager, Izanne Fagan’s amazing tips to refresh your beauty routine!
1. Massage in your moisturiser
When we say massage, we mean massage. Rather than dabbing on your face cream, use gentle pressure, massaging it into your skin in a circular motion. This simple trick will kick your circulation into high gear – plus it feels so good!
2. Wear sunscreen
Protecting yourself from sun damage will make you feel better now and later. Wear at least SPF 15 every day (higher if you're spending time in strong sun) to help prevent skin cancer, wrinkles and sunburn.
3. Eat chocolate – yes, seriously!
We know, we know – everyone always says chocolate causes acne. But there's no scientific proof on that front, so as far as we're concerned, eat up! Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants that help protect your skin and eating a small piece will send all sorts of satisfied, happy feelings to your brain.
Another reason to take that extra gym class; a good workout doesn't just burn calories, it also helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to your skin.
5. Get hydrated
Drinking six to eight glasses of water a day is beyond important for your skin—hydration starts from the inside out.
If your complexion is looking a little dull, chances are it needs a little scrub-down. Use a gentle face exfoliator/scrub to remove dead skin cells; your skin will glow after. Do not exfoliate if you have acne or a bad break out and keep exfoliation to twice a week to avoid irritation.
