5 Step Morning Skincare Routine
Everybody wants silky smooth skin and a great complexion, but many people do not exert the effort to achieve it...don’t be that person! This year, resolve to put in the time and effort to achieve the great skin you’ve been longing for.
Heed the advice from dermatologists and skin care experts:
establish an extensive morning skincare routine.
As we all know, removing your makeup the night before is not, and never will be, enough. Slapping on BB cream before you walk out the door will never hide the dullness or dryness of your skin.
To help you end this problematic cycle once and for all, here’s a 5-step morning skincare routine suggestion for you:
Step 1: Proper Hydration
Our body tends to lose a lot of moisture while we sleep, that’s why drinking lots of water first thing in the morning is strongly recommended to keep our skin moisturized. Not only is drinking lots of water necessary for our general health, it is also crucial in avoiding dry and dull skin, as well as preventing breakouts. Drinking at least 2 glasses of water in the morning is ideal in cleansing the digestive system and avoiding those puffy eyes.
Step 2: Rigorous Exercise
There’s no going around it, rigorous exercise is important to achieve and maintain a healthy skin. Rigorous exercise like High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) improves blood flow circulation, which is necessary for a day-long natural glow of your complexion. And who wouldn’t like toned abs and a lean figure as an added benefit? Best of all, exercise reduces stress which is necessary to keep you looking young and radiant.
Step 3: Proper Cleansing
Wash your face to get rid of dirt build up, bacteria, oil, and makeup residue. Letting these linger on your face will stretch your pores and make them appear bigger, and possibly even lead to acne. Make sure to wash your face with lukewarm water and pat yourself dry with a clean towel. Water that is extremely hot or cold will dry out your skin, and rubbing your face (instead of patting) when drying off might irritate the skin.
Step 4: Facial Massage
Massaging your face is a great way to increase circulation to your facial tissues. It also lifts the skin and makes it firm, eliminating traces of wrinkles while your face looks younger. Massaging the lymph area drains away toxins before they build up in your face. You can do this using the tips of your fingers and massaging the area in a circular motion for 60 seconds. The same applies when you massage the sides of your face and your forehead.
Massaging the corner and the area underneath your eyes will effectively reduce puffiness and the visibility of dark under eye circles. For people who are highly concerned about their dark under eye circles, applyingPORCELANA® DARK CIRCLE TREATMENT is an effective treatment as it eliminates the pigments that are responsible for the dark circles.
Step 5: Sun Protection
Prevention is indeed better than the cure, as the old saying goes. Make sure your skin is safe from harsh sunlight even before you walk out of the door. Knowing that sunlight is the number one cause of skin aging, putting on sunscreen is the best course of action to keep your skin from getting damaged by the sun’s harsh rays.
If you’re self-conscious about your skin’s exposure to the sun, usingPORCELANA® DAY SKIN LIGHTENING CREAM - DARK SPOT CORRECTOR is the ideal solution for you. Formulated with 2% hydroquinone, it serves as an effective sunscreen while it gently removes any form of discoloration, blemish, and dark spot caused by the harmful rays of the sun.
There you go! Using this 5-step morning skincare routine daily is guaranteed to immediately yield visible results in a few days. Take good care of your skin and your skin will take good care of your beauty!
