The society has taught us that the value of a product lies in how expensive it is. That is why it no longer comes as a surprise that many of us have this common misconception that to achieve healthy and glowing skin, we should use only the most expensive products in the aisle.
Well, I do not mean to burst your bubble. I am just here to tell you the truth. You can't expect your beauty routine to become effective just because it involves the use of overpriced skin care products. The effectiveness of a skin care routine is not about the price of the product it is about the quality of the product.
In fact, a simple tweak to your beauty routine can already make a big difference. If you wish to make your beauty routine a lot more effective, here are simple beauty routine tricks that you should try.
Massage your face :
Sometimes, the best things for your skin are free! If you are dealing with puffy eyes and dark circles and you can't seem to find the best products to address this condition, then you should try to add a free item to your routine-a face massage! You can do this just by simply using your fingers to gently press on your orbital bone. Gently glide your fingers from the inner to the outer corner of your eyes. Do this for three to four time a day.
This simple trick can help promote blood flow to the eye area, diminishing dark circles and addressing puffy eyes.
Rub lemon juice on darkened areas of the skin :
The most common advice you would get when addressing different types of hyperpigmentation is to use a skin lightening cream. While most of the creams are highly effective, they can be irritating and worse; they cost a lot! Lucky for you, we already have one skin lightening agent that has been used for centuries-lemon juice.
If you are dealing with discoloration, just simply add two to three drops of lemon juice in a cotton ball and gently swipe it over the affected area. Do this at least once a day. This simple trick is also said to be effective against different types of acne scars. Just make sure that you moisturize your skin afterward as the juice tend to be drying.
Choose mild cleansers :
We have also been raised to believe that the stronger the products are, the more effective it is. But the truth is, the gentler the product is, the better it is for the skin. And it is most especially true for cleansers. One of the secrets of people with glowing and healthy skin is a mild cleanser. Avoid cleansers that can strip oils from your skin. Instead, opt for ones that contain ceramides and fatty acids that can help retain the skin's moisture.
Moisturize your skin while it is still damp :
We all know that we should always moisturize our skin right after cleansing it. But please keep in mind that how soon your moisturize your skin matters a lot. Experts recommend that you moisturize your skin right after cleansing it-while it is still damp. In this way, you can seal the added moisture into your skin, boosting its hydration.
Choose beauty products that have SPF :
We all know that sun protection is important but many of us fail to protect our skin simply because the additional step in the routine can already become more tedious to us. The trick here is to simplify your routine. Instead of adding one more step in your regimen (slather on your sunscreen!), why not got for skin care products that already has SPF (ie. Moisturizers, lotions, and the likes)? In this way, your routine has one less step and it will be easier for you to put on sun protection every day.
Double Cleanse :
Koreans swear by this, and their skin is youthful, glowing and healthy looking, so I guess they are doing skincare routine right! Start cleansing your skin with the use of the mild milky cleanser. This can remove dirt and grime that may have piled in your pores all throughout the day. Afterward, continue cleansing your skin with a heavier cleanser that can exfoliate and at the same time, moisturize the skin.
You see, beauty does not have to be expensive! Sometimes, a small, simple change to your beauty routine can make all the difference! Try out these beauty tricks. Rest assured-these can change your life for the better!
