Skincare is something that is a priority for me at this stage of my life, although that hasn’t always been the case.
I’m pretty passionate when it comes to taking care of my skin, and when I don’t, it shows up in different ways. Here are 3 new habits that have totally changed my skin this year.
Earlier this year, I decided that it was time to incorporate anti-ageing products into my skincare routine. Some may argue that I started too late as I’m already in my late thirties, but better late than never, right? Seriously though, the sooner you start using anti-age products, you can minimize visible age spots, wrinkles and fine lines.
Skincare is a challenge that can be overwhelming, from serums to oils—a wide variety of products to choose from. Approximately six months ago, I was introduced to NIVEA’s latest anti-age range, Cellular Filler Elasticity. The range promises to tackle signs of ageing by visibly reducing deep wrinkles, helping to firm skin and help reduce dryness.
The one product that I want to focus on from the range is the NEW NIVEA Cellular Elasticity Anti-Spot Treatment Serum. The Serum helps reduce the appearance of existing age spots when used consistently for over four weeks. I apply it in the morning and evening on my entire face as a daily treatment, just after cleansing and before using moisturising cream.
Results: I started noticing the difference in my skin after I had been using the NEW NIVEA Cellular Elasticity Anti-Spot Treatment Serum continuously for about one month. My age spots have visibly reduced, I’m glowing and I’ve never loved my skin more than I do right now.
I don’t wear make-up everyday
I used to be that girl that would put on make-up just to go to the grocery store. I had gotten so used to wearing make-up to the point that I didn’t like the way I looked without it. Primarily, I was covering up what I didn’t like instead of fixing it. My wakeup call arrived when my 4-year-old asked me why I wear make-up all the time. That’s when I knew that I wasn’t setting a good example. I immediately knew that I needed to change, not just for her, but also for myself.
Now I don’t wear make-up every day. On most days, I’ll just fill in my brows and put on a bold lipstick. I work from home, which means I’m either at home or running errands most of the time. I only wear make-up if I have a meeting, if I’m shooting or if I have a date. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my makeup, but I love it when my skin gets to breathe.
I’m obsessed with sunscreen. On the days that I don’t wear make-up, I get to apply sunscreen at least twice a day because I don’t’ have to worry about ruining my face beat. Not only does sunscreen slow down the skin ageing process, but it also reduces the chances of skin cancer and pigmentation.
Consult a Dermatologist
When we are sick, we consult a GP. But if we’re not happy with our skin, we cover it up. It doesn’t make sense. I started seeing a Dermatologist this year. Mainly to get some guidance on how to take care of my skin. Having an expert look at your skin works to your advantage in many ways. If you have a skin-related concern that doesn’t seem to go away, consult a Dermatologist.
