Welcome back to Skincare Sundays and Happy Easter! Today is more of a personal post rather than a review or tip post as I think the topic is quite important. From a young age I didn’t really grow up around a lot of beauty products. My family kept what they used to themselves, so I didn’t really learn much. I used to play around with my mum’s makeup of course, who didn’t? But skincare is quite a personal thing and I never really knew when to start or what to do with it. When I was about 17 I started to understand a bit more about what products did and what certain brands represented, just from reading magazines. I used a moisturiser and makeup remover and that’s about it. But now is a whole different story just 3-4 years on, and I want to share with you what I think to starting early with skincare.
Being ahead of yourself in any aspect of life is always rewarding, and I certainly think this about skincare. I’m not saying to start with anti-aging products or similar when you’re in your teens or even very early 20’s, but caring for your skin is the best thing you can do.
As I said, I started with just a moisturiser and then I gradually taught myself more about certain products such as serums, eye creams, toners etc., and slowly built up my own routine that worked for me.
Another tip I would always give is that if a skincare product works for someone it won’t always work for you. With all the various skin types and issues, skincare is a very order accutane no rx personal thing. Of course, I test out recommended products and things I see with good reviews on blogs and in magazines but if it doesn’t work for me I won’t keep using it, as I don’t want my skin to suffer or have breakups. If you find a brand, a range or a certain type of product that really works for you and makes you feel good in your skin, then I say stick to it. It took me ages to find just a small selection of products that work for me, and I’m still looking for the perfect oil, face mask and eye cream but when you find them you just know.
If you’re completely new to it and would love to try some bits I would say to try out moisturisers, and stick to moisturising your face and neck once/twice a day, and a facial mist. I so wish I found facial mists at a younger age as I just love them and they work so well for any skin. I adore the Pixi Beauty Glow Mist, it’s so refreshing and gives your skin an instant boost of hydration and brightness.
I’m no expert but I think starting out with skincare from a young age, say mid teens, is quite important. It keeps your skin in healthy and well-cared for condition and I’m so thankful I started quite young and hopefully my skin thanks me in the future. Skincare doesn’t mean just your face either, I always ensure I keep my body well hydrated and moisturised!
