Because you’re unique (just like everybody else)
We’ve all been there, your favourite celebrity or influencer has seemingly flawless skin and you want to know the secret to their amazing complexion. You find out what skincare products and devices they swear by and go right out to get yourself the same exact ones. You even follow their skincare routine down to the smallest detail, but… your skin still looks like your ordinary old skin.
Here’s the deal: not a single one of us will ever be completely the same, we never have been and never will be… So then why do we still see people using one-size-fits-all skincare methods?
Get Personal With Personalized Skincare
There are lots of things that can impact your skin that, in turn, play a role in the exact skincare routine that’s best for you. There are so many factors that need to be taken into consideration, like for example genetic predisposition, diet, age, and many more. However, we’ve summed up the list to the four most important variables that you should pay attention to if you want to get the most out of your skincare routine.
You Are What You Eat
That’s right, your diet could be negatively impacting your skin. Some foods are more likely to cause swelling and an increase in sebum, acne, and other skin culprits. You can buy all the skincare products and facial devices you want, but if the underlying cause of your skin condition doesn’t change then you’ll only be treating the symptoms and not the cause. If you want to reap the rewards of your skincare practice, a diet rich in antioxidants could be the key to your dream skin.
Beauty Is Only Skin Type Deep
The most important thing to identify before venturing on your skincare journey is your skin type. It’s so easy to figure out and it can be a lifesaver when it comes to buying the right skincare products for your skin. Take a look at the visual below to determine which skin type you could have.
Work It Out
If you spend your days sweating it out in the gym or your fave yoga class, then guess what? Paris Hilton’s skincare routine probably isn’t going to cut it. People with an active lifestyle sweat way more, so if you find yourself in that category, then your time would be best spent looking for ways to deal with sweat pimples and clogged pores. Skincare products that cater to these issues are your best bet for looking fabulous inside the gym and out.
You’re Hot Then You’re Cold
Sunny and hot climate is going to call for different skincare than colder dry places. After all, there’s a reason that our skin starts to act up when the seasons change, and your skincare routine always follows soon after. Take this into account when searching for your next skincare product.
Smarter Skincare Has Never Been Easier
We live in the digital age, and for better or for worse, all the information you could ever hope for is out there someone just a click away. Lucky for us, in this specific case it can make your beauty routine a hell of a lot easier. Whether you choose to dive in deep and do the research for yourself, or you want a quick and easy way to determine your skin type, there is countless information out there on the web just waiting for you to find it.
It literally couldn’t be easier, but in the interest of lessening your workload even further, here is a great skin type online quiz that can tell you exactly what kind of skin you have, and it goes a step further and tells you exactly what items you should be incorporating into your skincare. Whether you choose to buy their specific products, or ones that are similar and match their descriptions, is completely up to you.
