By Request - The Best Time Of Day To Use Skincare Ingredients!
Your skin goes through a number of changes in a 24hr period (more info on that in the next post). Here are 7 ways to maximise:
1️⃣Wear sunscreen! It protects your skin from UV radiation which is responsible for up to 90% of skin aging.
2️⃣Use antioxidants alongside sunscreen as they work synergistically with sunscreen to protect your skin against UV radiation. They also protect your skin from the effects of pollution.
3️⃣Use acidic products (e.g. salicylic acid cleanser, ascorbic acid, etc.) in the morning to keep your skin pH at its acidic ideal. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is also an excellent antioxidant.
Note: salicylic acid has been shown to protect skin from UV radiation (unlike glycolic acid/AHAs) but it is not a replacement for sunscreen).
4️⃣Use oil-controlling products in the AM – ingredients like salicylic acid, niacinamide, and green tea can help reduce oil production and help control midday oiliness. The latter two are also antioxidants which means they help with #2 as well!
5️⃣Use DNA-repairing enzymes (e.g. photolyase found in bacteria and plants) to help your skin undo the damage done during the day.
6️⃣Enhance your elevated rate of skin cell renewal by using retinoids (e.g. retinol) at night.
7️⃣Use heavier moisturizers at night to reduce the amount of water lost from your skin overnight. Dry skin may benefit from an occlusive moisturizer to really lock in moisture.

Who else says they are never going to do a full makeup look but ends up going all out? I’m guilty … 🙋♀️🙋♀️
Anyways… I have been asked by many what products I will use this summer and I think I have finally found my go-to products for the summer time ⛅️
