Renew Your Skin’s Lost Gory with These Must-Do Tips
Now that the New Year celebrations are over, it is time to start off 2018 by giving your skin the attention it deserves. The holidays with their endless cocktails, greasy food and messed up sleep schedules can truly spell disaster for your skin. The good news is that beginning the year by making some easy promises to yourself will ensure that your skin glows the whole year through.
Just like you make New Year resolutions, we recommend that you also make some skin resolutions for 2018 that will give you healthier, softer skin in no time. Try to incorporate these easy steps into your skincare regime to see the difference:
1. Drink more water
There is a reason why every magazine, doctor, grandma and website you encounter will encourage you to drink at least eight glasses of water every day. Besides a host of health benefits, drinking enough water is the simplest, easiest and definitely the best thing you can do for your skin is to keep it hydrated.
Not only does water flush out toxins from your system, but it also replenishes the skin tissues to make them more elastic, thereby preventing signs of aging like wrinkles and sagging skin. For soft, supple and radiant skin this year and beyond, remember to drink enough water!
2. Apply sunscreen religiously
Even when you’re not planning to step out of the house. Yup! Exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun can lead to wrinkles, skin damage and tanning. Even when indoors, you are exposed to UV radiations through light from bulbs, tube lights, and sunlight entering through windows. Choose a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF) to protect your skin from pigmentation, tanning, and premature aging.
WOW AM2PM Sunscreen with SPF-50 is a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen that is free of parabens and harmful mineral oils. It is Use it daily to see the change in your skin yourself.
3. Avoid pollution
Pollution particles floating in the air all around tend to stick to skin and clog pores creating toxin overload and leading to sallow skin, acne and pigmentation. We know you can’t avoid pollution totally. After all, pollutants are simply everywhere. While indoors, we can use air purifiers, what about outdoors? Well, we recommend that you use a good quality anti-pollution sunscreen (yes, this is an advanced and very helpful product).
If you work outdoors in a polluted environment, or if you have a long daily commute on exhaust filled roads, we recommend WOW Anti Pollution Sunscreen with SPF 40 and resistance to even PM2.5 sized pollutants.
4. Remove makeup before you hit the bed
The cardinal sin of skincare. Sleeping with your makeup on can clog your pores – causing breakouts, increase your exposure to free radicals – leading to wrinkles, dry out your skin and lips and even cause your eyelashes to break easily. A very simple way to prevent this is to promise yourself – no matter how tired you are – to always take off your makeup before you sleep.
We recommend the WOW Skin Science Coconut Clarifying Micellar Water to remove makeup after a long day. Micellar Water is the latest buzzword in the beauty industry for a good reason. Coconut Clarifying Micellar Water is made up of coconut and tiny natural oil molecules that remove all dirt, pollution, and makeup without removing skin’s own moisture and natural protective oils. Sounds wonderful, right? What makes this product even better is that it is completely free of harmful sulphates, parabens, and mineral oils. Keep this nifty skincare product by your bedside and don’t forget to use it every night.
5. Exfoliate regularly
A skincare step that most of us skip is, as it turns out, very important. Exfoliating your skin removes the old and dead skin cells that have lost their luster and promote the growth of new ones. Exfoliating regularly – two or three times a week – will improve your skin’s elasticity, reduce stretch marks and make it smoother.
WOW Arabica Coffee Scrub is composed of ground organic coffee with shea butter and coconut oil to keep your skin moisturized. This product, rich in antioxidants, is the perfect way to keep your skin glowing and to reduce cellulite.
6. Start using an anti-aging cream
In your 20s itself! Your skin may not start to show the effects of aging until you’re in your 30s, but your late 20s are the right time to start using an anti-aging cream. Before signs of aging like wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin start to appear, guard against them by investing in a good anti-aging product.
WOW Anti Aging Daily Night Cream is the perfect way to rejuvenate your skin as you sleep and fight off signs of aging. It works by stimulating collagen synthesis to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and fade age spots. Studies have shown that it provides noticeable results within just two months of use – so definitely start using it in 2018 and your skin will thank you!
