How to pamper your skin after a long week?
In today’s hectic life, self-pampering is the need of the hour. There are various ways of pampering yourself. You can take a massage, hot shower bath, or go to a spa. If none of these is feasible, you can follow normal skincare to recharge you and refresh your skin. Using good quality products is as essential as self-pampering is! Instead of providing benefits, poor-quality products can harm your skin to the extent you can’t even imagine. Now let’s have a look at the reasons why you need to pamper your skin!
Why is skin-pampering important?
There are multiple reasons for this, some of which are mentioned below-
1. It rejuvenates your skin
Dead skin gets peeled off regularly, so if taken care of it in a proper way, it helps the skin get better. Regular skin pampering and care also help in preventing acne and wrinkles and repair the skin before any major damage.
2. Leaves you with more glow
Regularly pampered skin makes you glow from the inside. It is exactly like, if you take care of your skin, it will take care of you in the future. Aging causes the slower turnover of cells and the skincare routine increases this pace. This helps in removing dead cells faster and replacing the same with younger and fresh skin.
3. Boosts mental and physical health
Self-pampering soothes your mood and keeps you at bay with stress. It simply leads to prioritizing yourself over others and eventually to your well-being. Doing this on a regular basis essentially helps you to stay away from deep stress and eventually leads to better physical health as well.
4. Improves confidence
The soothing effect it provides is unparalleled and the happiness it provides is beyond this world. Once you start feeling good about yourself and your skin, you start feeling more confident than ever before. If you are happy and confident, then only you can take care of others and make them happy as well.
5. Gives you ‘me’ time
Self-pampering gives you a break from your monotonous or hectic life and provides you full opportunity to relax and give yourself a break from stressed life too. It gives you that time to enjoy which is solely yours, i.e., a total escape from reality. After this, you get able to concentrate more and solve your problems efficiently.
How can you pamper your skin?
There is a long list of things that you can do but following only a few on a regular basis can help you in taking care of your skin in the best way possible. You can do the below-mentioned things anyway-
Face cleansing is something that one should do at least twice a day to possibly remove all the dirt. One should buy a gentle cleanser as per their skin type. Those with oily skin shall go for gel or oil-free cleansers and those with dry skin shall use oil-based cleansers. This would help you in removing your makeup (if applied) properly and hence, following this step is eminent for skincare. Rinse with water thoroughly. Cleansing boosts blood circulation which makes the skin glowing, hydrated, and soft.
Steam helps in opening all the closed pores and getting rid of all the blackheads and whiteheads trapped on the uppermost layer of skin. Getting it done before exfoliation leads to the easier removal of dirt. It not only boosts blood circulation that brings out the inner glow but also hydrates and softens the skin and unclogs the pores. It also increases the efficacy of applied products after it is done.
After cleansing, you need to exfoliate to clean the skin to a deeper level. You can restrict this process to once or twice a week as such a deep cleaning is not required on a daily skin and doing which would rather damage your skin. You can either purchase an exfoliant or make it at your home as per your skin suitability. Give a gentle massage with a scrub on your face and then wash it with normal water. Don’t forget to exfoliate your lips too. Its pampering is as important as the whole face.
4. Apply toner
It’s always a question of whether to apply toner before or after exfoliation. It basically depends upon the type of exfoliation done. If it’s a manual one, apply toner after exfoliation because it helps in further removing the impurities after exfoliation. The skin may get irritated a little after exfoliation, toner helps in soothing and hydrating it while restoring the essential nutrients. If it’s chemical exfoliation, it’s better to use it before so that it prepares the skin to get better worked on by the chemicals.
Moisturizer is a must-have product for everyone whatsoever skin type they have. After removing all the dirt, you need to apply moisturizer. Go for an oil-free or oil-based moisturizer depending on your skin type. Moisturizers freeze the moisture in the skin and hence, buying a good quality one is of utmost importance. Massage gently on your face in the upward direction for best results. You can also apply serum for a level-up effect.
This is the time to lock all the nutrients, hence, comes the use of a facial mask. It not only hydrates skin and removes excess oil but also helps in reducing the visibility of pores. A face mask targets various skin issues. It extracts all the impurities and reduces signs of aging. It helps in making your skin flawless, softer, and smoother. It alleviates your mood in no time.
