With the current quarantine situation and with most people spending all their time at home, it can be tempting to give up on a regular skincare routine. When you’re spending most of your time indoors, even if you’re working, a lot of normal things go out the window, like dressing professionally – most people will be sitting in their pyjamas all day, which is completely understandable.

However, don’t let your skin fall victim to neglect. Sticking to a consistent skincare routine is crucial, especially if you still want to achieve that radiant glow.

Achieving Beautiful Skin Takes Time

Having a beautiful, healthy glow as well as a clear complexion doesn’t happen overnight. With a consistent routine over a period of time, your skin is able to receive the nourishment it needs to look radiant and youthful. By being consistent and patient – and practice good skincare every day – you’re more likely to get the results you’re looking for.

So, once you implement a skincare routine that works for you, don’t forget that it takes time for it to work, so try not to skimp on it (even if it’s only a day).

Your Skin Changes Everyday

The outer layer of our skin makes way for new skin underneath – this means that, every day, we shed old skin cells, which can add a tired look to your complexion if not taken care of. In order to achieve a glowing vibrant look, you want to keep up a consistent skincare routine that includes exfoliating as well.

Not only do you need to maintain your skin every day, but it’s good to remove dead skin cells on your face a couple times a week. This will reveal the healthy skin underneath.

For example, the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Exfoliating Moisturiser offers hydration, improves the texture of your skin and can also improve the appearance of fine lines. This exfoliator aids in cell turnover and helps to prevent water loss.

You Can Maintain Results More Easily

By adhering to a regular skincare routine, you’ll find it easier to maintain the look you love. Your skin will get clearer and more radiant as you carry on, and you’ll be able to keep that up if you don’t stop your routine. This means that, the more you stick to a routine, the quicker you’ll see results and, if you keep going, you can maintain them without a hitch.

As an example, you can include the Dr Barbara Sturm Anti-Ageing Primer in your routine, which prepares your skin with a combination of anti-ageing ingredients and makeup benefits. You get more a refreshed and radiant-looking complexion, as well as hydration, which can help you maintain a youthful glow for longer.

Everyone Has Different Skin Types

While some people may be able to have gorgeous skin without sticking to a routine, you also have to remember that everyone is different, and you have a different skin type when compared to someone else. So, what works for your friends, for instance, may not work for you. If your skin needs more upkeep, maintaining a consistent routine is the way to go.

The Obagi Gentle Cleanser has been designed for dry or sensitive skin, so it can be a good option if this is your type. This mild facial cleanser removes impurities, oil and makeup, ensuring your skin is not only smooth but also refreshed. Make a good cleanser part of your skincare routine and you’ll soon start to see the results.

Prevent Now, Benefit Later

It’s so much easier to prevent future skin issues than it is to try to fix them later down the line. Of course, this doesn’t mean it’s impossible – in fact, we offer a wide range of treatments at our cosmetic skin clinic in Guernsey, our cosmetic skin clinic in Jersey and our cosmetic skin clinic in Belfast, so we are aware of how this can be achieved.

However, by sticking to a good skincare routine now, you’re more likely to see it retain its youthfulness and clear appearance for a long time. It may take some time now but we’re confident that you’ll reap the benefits later.

Get a Confident Boost

Another reason to start a skincare habit – and to keep it up – is how this can help to improve your confidence levels. It’s impossible to deny that, when you look good, you feel good. After all, your face is the first part of your body that other people see first, so having a gorgeous complexion can make all the difference and boost your self-esteem. A regular routine will ensure that you look your best all year round, no matter the season.

You’ll Develop Other Good Habits

When you are capable of maintaining a regular skincare routine, you’re also more likely to be able to create and keep up other healthy habits. You feel good, so you may want to take care of your hair, for example, or you want to maintain a balanced diet in order to enhance the glow of your skin.

For instance, you can start looking at your neck as well. The iS Clinical Neck Perfect Complex will tighten, sculpt and smooth the skin of your neck, jawline and décolleté, helping it to appear lifted and more defined. You’ll also benefit from a reduction in lines and wrinkles and an improvement of skin tone and texture.

Here at The Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we understand just how important it is to keep up your skincare routine even when you’re at home all day and feel like there’s no reason to do it. Once quarantine is lifted and measures are loosened, you’ll be thankful that you spent the time looking after your skin – so, when you meet up with friends in person or return to the office, your complexion will be the opposite of dull and tired.
