When it comes to achieving and maintaining flawless skin and a youthful appearance, your genes can only do so much for you. Nothing beats sticking to a solid skincare routine to get you through the hustle and bustle of life.
If you don’t have one yet, you’re in luck. In this article, we’ll teach you how to build a simplified skincare regimen that you can effortlessly incorporate in your everyday routine, featuring our favourite ZO® skincare products.
Let’s get started!
Ideally, the primary step of building a skincare routine is booking a consultation with an expert skincare specialist. They will evaluate your skin health, and based on that, give recommendations as to what type of products and ingredients you should be going for or stop using. There are basic skincare steps that will work wonders for you regardless of your skin type and concerns you’re having. These include the following:
Washing your face is an essential part of any skincare routine. It prevents your pores from getting clogged by makeup, dust, and dirt that your skin is constantly exposed to every day.
You should be washing your face at least twice a day. Always start with a freshly cleansed face in the morning before you put on any makeup. Also, never go to bed without washing your face again at night. An end of day cleanse is to get rid of the makeup and impurities that have accumulated in your skin throughout the day.
Find the perfect facial cleanser that will get rid of the grime without stripping off the essential oils in your skin. Steer clear of cleansers that contain abrasive ingredients and harsh chemicals, which could lead to irritation. Opt for a mild skin cleanser with dual-action properties that is suitable for your unique skin type and condition.
Skin exfoliation comes with a lot of beautiful benefits. When you exfoliate, you remove the topmost layer of the skin, which is made up of dry, dull, and dead skin cells that seal off the pores and traps impurities that lead to acne and skin breakouts. Ideally, you should exfoliate twice a week.
Exfoliating also gives your skin a fresh start by peeling off the old skin and revealing a brand-new layer that is free of blemishes and more glowing. In addition, it also boosts the absorption of skincare products into the skin, making them work even better. If you want to fight the early signs of aging proactively, regularly exfoliating the skin is a great way to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production, which is a crucial component of skin renewal.
After cleanse and exfoliate your face, you should follow it up with a toner afterwards. It’s to restore your skin’s natural pH balance of 5.5, which is frequently affected when you wash your face. Without toning, your face will be too weak, rough, and dry after cleansing.
Aside from bringing back its optimum balance, toner benefits your skin by:
One of our favourite ZO® skincare products is the ZO® Skin Health Calming Toner, PH Balance, which boasts of an exclusive blend of conditioners, moisturizers and hydrating agents that soothe the skin. A splash of this amazing toner gives a delightful gentle cooling and instant calming effect on the skin.
The ZO® Skin Health Daily Power Defense cream provides you with the antioxidant protection that you need in order to combat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Its powerful formula can help tighten and firm your skin and improve overall skin health to keep you looking radiant.
Sunscreen is another non-negotiable aspect of every skincare regimen. It shields the skin from the damaging impact of harsh UV light caused by excessive sun exposure. Consistent use of sunscreen can:
Select a sunscreen with a considerably high SPF or sun protection factor. Also consider a product that is lightweight, transparent, and wouldn’t leave an awkward white cast on your skin. All of these criteria would be great, especially if you are planning to wear it underneath other skincare products and makeup.
Always put on your sunscreen 30 minutes before you head outside. Ideally, you should reapply it after two hours of sun exposure. A nickel-sized amount of sunscreen should be enough to provide sufficient protection for your face.
Serums are super nourishing to your skin. They contain a concentration of sought-after active ingredients to give your skin a boost in every possible direction. The options are endless when it comes to serums and they can be added to your skincare routine as needed. Whatever benefit you’re looking for, there’s a serum a skincare specialist can recommend.
The ZO® GSR (Getting Skin Ready) System is a complete selection of therapeutic products that are proven safe and effective for sensitive skin. Its secret ingredient is Rozatrol™, a daily treatment serum that combats excess oil that triggers inflammation. It also facilitates gentle exfoliation that gets rid of dull and blemished skin and reveals a brighter and more radiant complexion.
