Having healthy, clear and beautiful skin all starts with good habits. A high percentage of people lay the blame of ‘bad skin’ at genetics door, but that’s why we’re here to help explain what you can do and have a say in the outcome of your skin. It’s vitally important that what goes into your body and on your skin is healthy and looks after your skin not just now but in the future. Check out our hints and tips now to help your skin get to its peak best!
Never use soap or products that leave you feeling dry
The ingredients in a bar of soap are alkaline based (high pH balance) which strip all the water and natural oils out of your skin, cause the surface to dehydrate. The skin cells in your face need to stay moist in order for you to be healthy. Without water, you’ll find yourself with acne, sensitive, dry and dull skin. Remember the rule, more lather, more drying. Less lather, less drying.
Use a Face Wash
It’s important to always wash your face in the morning as during the night your skin goes into ‘repair mode’ and will withhold oil which can prevent your normal daytime products (such as your Daily Moisturiser) from working properly. Using Cornerstone’s Face Wash is an oil-free and sensitive daily face wash blended with mint and cucumber extracts to deliver a gentle yet invigorating clean. It removes excess dirt and impurities from your skin to make your skin feel energised and refreshed in the morning.
Don’t be so rough on your skin
There are a number of instruments and techniques that can be rough on your skin and damage it. Some of the most prominent can be drying your face too harshly with a towel after a bath or shower, using a facial brush too much can damage your skin, although the recommended usage can be twice a day, we’re skeptical and would say once is more than enough to remove the dirt and impurities from your skin. Finally, a fun one is sleeping correctly on your pillows! Did you know that the second cause of wrinkles is, in fact, the way you sleep?! To help the reduction of wrinkles, be sure to sleep laid on your back, straight and head down.
Moisturising daily is an absolute must when using a face wash, without it, it would be like fish without chips. Using the Cornerstone Face Wash is only 50% of the routine, finishing off with our Oil-Free Sensitive Daily Moisturiser really set your skin up for the day ahead. It is a lightweight and non-greasy formula blended with mint and aloe vera to refresh and hydrate your skin, perfect for use just after shaving to condition and restore your skin’s natural moisture balance.
