Guess what? You can achieve luminous, beautiful skin from the comfort of your very own home! Here are a few DIY tips on pampering your skin – and yourself!
Maintain your skin care routine
Aside from the mental wellness benefits of maintaining normal routines during a stressful time, there are legitimate skin benefits to maintaining your daily skin care routine as well. Whether it’s washing twice daily with your favorite cleanser or simply wiping away the day before bed, cleansing your skin helps remove dirt and grime, setting the stage for a bright, refreshed complexion. Before bed, be sure to apply a results-driven serum of your choice, depending on your skin concerns. For example, vitamin C serums are indicated for brightening dark spots, whereas retinoids help diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Nighttime is ideal for applying active ingredients because your skin goes into intense healing mode while you sleep, optimizing the benefits of your skin-renewing serums.
Other important skin care tips: Moisturize daily to fend off flakiness resulting from prolonged exposure to dry indoor heat. Also, applying an antioxidant-packed SPF sunscreen is still a daily essential, even when you’re indoors, because you’re still exposed to UV rays through the windows and blue light from your computer, TV and phone screens. That’s why here at SafiraMD, I provide two types of sunscreen by Alastin® Skincare: Broad Spectrum SPF 30+ Suncreen and HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36. Both are packed with antioxidants to help protect your skin from blue light as well as sunlight!
Don’t touch your face
Not only is this a requirement for the health and safety of yourself and those around you right now, but not touching your face has multiple benefits for your skin, as well. Touching your face can transfer bacteria from your hands to your face, which can clog pores – causing breakouts – and even lead to irritation, inflammation and other reactions. In this same vein, it’s important to remember to always thoroughly wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds before using your hands to wash your face or apply facial skin care products.
With these tips, you can help your complexion stay refreshed and radiant for video chats, selfies and more. And most importantly, your skin will be healthy and better able to protect you! Learn more today by calling us at (678) 235-8221 or requesting a consultation online.
