5 Essential Skin Care Products That You Cannot Afford To Ignore

     0

As we get older, it’s more important than ever to stick with a simple but thoughtful skincare routine to maintain beautiful, youthful skin! It is easier to take care of your skin and maintain your youthful, healthy appearance now rather than trying to recapture it after years of damage.

However, if you have been ignoring your skin for quite some time, we are here to reassure you that it isn’t a problem that can’t be fixed. Stepping up your skin regime a slight notch higher with some TLC can do wonders.

Here are 5 must-haves to help protect your skin and lock in the moisture, leaving it soft and supple all day long. Of course, the Golden Rule stands: moisturize oodles and drink that water!

Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is known to shield well against dryness and flu and reduce tiredness. However, include it in your skin care regime as a serum, and soon you will be enjoying that glow! Prep your skin with a good antioxidant serum right at the start before you apply your moisturizer et al. It may seem a bit pricey.

Still, it’s worth the investment when all the goodness in it goes beyond battling dryness alone and aids in producing collagen and reducing age spots. Only a few drops every day goes a long way.

Extra Hydrating Cream

Switch up your regular body lotions for some intense, heavy moisturizers and body butter. Opt for an oil-infused formula for your body that lets your skin soak up every ounce of hydrating nourishment. While for your face, one with the hydrating powerhouse hyaluronic acid is gold.

These lightweight water-based gels hold a thousand times its weight in water and are a win for all skin types, including acne-prone. With these, bid adieu to dull and dry skin. Try Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream, Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

Tinted Lip Balm

While matte lip colours look great otherwise, ditch these for some hydrating lip balms that can save you chapped lips for hours at end. Choose from variants with Jojoba oil, wheat germ oil, almond oil or beeswax that glide over the lips like butter and have antimicrobial properties.

We prefer a tinted one any day to add some colour to the face while also avoiding the thin white layer some regular balms leave behind. Try Burt’s Bees for an 8-hour moisturization or NIVEA 24 hour melt in moisture, LOTUS Herbals Lip balm.

Hand And Foot Cream

A must-have in your arsenal for the amazing skin care is an excellent, moisturizing pocket-size hand and foot cream. Dig into the travel-friendly size at brands such as ‘The Bath and Body Works’, ‘The Body shop’ or ‘L’Occitane en Provence’. They smell absolutely divine. Trust us, you won’t be able to lay your hands off them.

The OG Vaseline

The Petroleum Jelly is a miracle staple that can multi-task and how. As a lip balm, taming frizzy hair ends, healing peeled skin {including around the nose during a cold}, as an overnight under-eye cream, a good overnight rejuvenation for cracked heels – many problems, one quick solution. Voila!

Tip – While you can get all these at your local cosmetic store, many online stores also offer the same at discounted rates as well. Plus you can get them delivered at home and pay with your card as well.
