Eight habits for perfect skin
Achieving that healthy, radiant complexion needn’t be hard. Sometimes, it’s the simple things that make the biggest difference – such as a routine skincare regime and a good diet. Today, we’re going back to basics and sharing the most important skincare tips that will keep your skin looking healthy for life.
Invest in a great moisturiser, cleanser and toner
A great moisturiser, cleanser and toner act a foundation to your skincare regime. Moisturisers help protect skin from the external environment and provide hydration, while cleansers and toners help to clean and balance the skin.
At AP Skincare, you’ll find a wide range of quality skincare products, with moisturisers to suit every skin type and age.
Wear sunscreen every day
Did you know that your skin is at risk of sun damage every day, even in the winter months? Even though the temperatures have cooled down, the sun can still be strong in winter. SPF provides UVA and UVB protection and helps slow down skin’s ageing. Our Heliocare range offers SPF 50 protection, guaranteeing adequate protection for your skin.
You are what you eat – so make sure you eat a healthy, balanced diet for healthy, glowing skin. Two types of food to limit are sugary foods and dairy. The former can play havoc with hormones and lead to acne while the latter can be difficult to digest and trigger oil production and acne.
Up your water intake
While moisturisers can hydrate your skin from the outside, it’s vital to hydrate skin from the inside too. A lack of water can result in dull, sagging skin while an adequate amount (around eight glasses a day) will enhance your complexion.
Treat yourself to regular facials
A professional facial can do wonders for your skin. Although there are some fantastic home treatments out there, there’s nothing quite like a professional treatment. High-grade products, used in our derma-facials, can do wonders for your skin – reducing the appearance of wrinkles and helping balance skin. Our facials also include facial massage, which has been proven to fight those pesky wrinkles!
Wear mineral make-up
Mineral make-up is much better for your skin than conventional make-up. It binds to oils rather than water and is free from chemicals and additives that can irritate skin. Our Glo-Minerals range is one of the most popular brands of mineral make-up and is enhanced with skin-saving vitamins too. Each product is enriched with Vitamin A, C and E – keeping your skin healthy and flawless.
Remove your make-up every night
Whatever type of make-up you choose, it’s vital that you remove it properly every night. If you don’t remove your make-up, your skin won’t be able to renew and regenerate itself overnight. Furthermore, as most conventional make-up is made of oily substances, your pores can become clogged – leading to breakouts.
Get your beauty sleep
Getting seven or eight hours of sleep a night will have a huge impact on the appearance of your skin. Adequate sleep helps your skin to look healthy and fresh as your body gets time to rest. Your skin also regenerates and repairs itself as your sleep, which is essential for healthy-looking skin.
