Whatever your age, building a solid skincare routine and sticking to it will pay dividends for the health of your skin. High-quality skincare that has been backed by science is your best bet in tackling problem areas and achieving the youthful, glowing skin of your dreams. Step forward SkinCeuticals, which prides itself on being an industry leader in terms of research and innovation. Its skincare is based on three main principles - to prevent, correct and protect. Here's how you can use their products in a regular daily skincare routine.
All good skincare routines start with a good cleanser. It is important to choose the right type of cleanser for your skin. The Blemish and Age Cleanser Gel promises to remove oil and make up while refining pores and brightening skin. Those with normal, combination or oily skin may enjoy Simply Clean cleanser which combines the gentle exfoliation of hydroxy acid with soothing botanicals to smooth skin while removing oil and make up. Or those with dull, discoloured or ageing skin may reach for the Glycolic Renewal Cleanser to brighten and rejuvenate.
Vitamin C serum
Vitamin C serum should be a mainstay of a great daily skincare routine. CE Ferulic contains 10% L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and works to reduce the appearance of ageing while offering protection from free radicals which can attack the skin's defences.
Hyaluronic acid is known to be super hydrating and smoothing on the face. H.A Intensifier is one of SkinCeuticals best-selling products, winning outstanding reviews from scores of customers. This corrective serum is clinically proven to boost plumpness, elasticity and firmness in your skin. Simply apply up to six drops to your hand and dab it around the face. This can be used in the evening too after applying a retinol product in place of vitamin C serum.
An essential step for maintaining skin hydration and smoothness, your choice of moisturiser should, once again, depend on your skin type and what you hope to achieve. Those with normal, combination or oily skin should try the Daily Moisture Pot, which adds moisture while helping to reduce pores. Those with dry or sensitive skin will love the restorative properties of Emollience. This easily absorbed cream nourishes skin and maintains moisture levels and can even soothe skin in cold or dry climates or high altitudes.
Every good daily skincare routine should end with an SPF of at least 30. Whatever your day holds, a specialist facial SPF is a must-have and can help to prevent fine lines and premature ageing. It is especially important to use one if your evening routine includes retinol. SkinCeuticals offers an impressive range of innovative facial SPFs. Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF50 won't leave a residue and protects from UV rays while brightening skin. Sheer Mineral UV Defense SPF50 is a mattifying fluid which offers UVB and UVA protection for even the most sensitive skin.
Stick to a regular skincare routine using great, science-backed products and you should see results within a matter of weeks.
