Each new year brings new resolutions that we hope will stick with you throughout the year. From eating better, to exercising more, resolutions yield the promise of making a substantial impact on your life. Why not resolve to make better #skinresolutions this year?! Read on to learn all five crucial steps for healthier skin that will last you from January 1st to December 31st.
Step 1: Cleanse
Start and finish each day by gently washing your face with a mild soap. At night, use a makeup removing cloth to wipe away all the glamour. You'll want to ensure you are using a cleanser that won't strip away the healthy nature of your skin and Bioderma's Sensibio H2O Wipes are perfect for this. These perfectly balanced wipes are enriched with an active micellar solution, promising to remove your makeup while ensuring clean and healthy skin.
In the morning, wash your face with lukewarm water to open your pores. Apply a cleanser to your face in small, upward circular motions using your ring and middle fingers. Pick the best cleanser that best fits the needs of your skin.
For dry skin, Bioderma Atoderm Intensive Foaming Gel is great to use daily. It purifies the skin and has lipid-replenishing agents, so your skin won't become tight or dry after using. If you have sensitive skin, we suggest using Bioderma Sensibio Foaming Gel. This cleanser soothing while reinforcing hydration to your skin. For combination skin, you'll love the Bioderma Sebium Foaming Gel. This purifying gel gently cleanses while preventing future breakouts.
Step 2: Tone
Some keep toning as a staple in their routine, and some have resolved to skip this step altogether, but toning is a very crucial step in skin care. Every day, pollution, stress, cold weather, etc. disrupt the skin's cellular activity. The benefits of toning include removing remaining traces of cleanser, dirt and oil, as well as re-balancing the skin's pH level. De-congest your pores with a toner or a tonic lotion. Bioderma's Hydrabio Tonic Lotion is great to use morning and evening after you cleanse daily. Soak a cotton pad with your toner and apply on your face right after cleansing.
Step 3: Hydrate
Once you've rid your skin of makeup, dirt and oil, it's important to protect and hydrate the skin. Use a moisturizer that fits your skin's needs. If your skin is dry you may want to use a heavy duty moisturizer at night. Bioderma Hydrabio Creme gives the skin the intense overnight moisture it needs and after hours of rest, you'll wake up with replenished and hydrated skin.
Step 4: Treat
To take care of some of the skin's more acute problems, look to serums and exfoliators, and there is a treatment for every skin condition. Want to leave your skin looking radiant all week? Exfoliate the skin once or twice a week on top of your solid daily skin care routine. Exfoliating brings a youthful glow to the skin, as you are buffing away older skin to reveal newer bright and healthy skin. Bioderma Hydrabio Exfoliating Scrub is perfect for keeping dull skin at bay. Ever wanted to banish large pores or excess oil? Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner Cream does just that. It tightens pores, and lastingly mattifies the skin.
Step 5: Try a Mask
For your best skin yet, use a mask once or twice a week. Get comfy in one of your favorite robes and dab a mask on your face for healthier skin. Use a mask that targets your skin's individual needs. Bioderma's Hydrabio Mask targets dry skin by intensely giving your skin a boost of moisture. Apply a thick layer to the face an neck after toning. Leave it on the skin for about 10 minutes, wash off and reveal a much more moisturized face. If your skin is sensitive, try the Bioderma Sensibio Mask - not only does it keep your skin moisturized, it also aids in soothing the skin.
Whether you already do these steps we've outlined above, we all could use a reminder on how to effectively take steps to improve the health of our skin. Share this blog with someone who is looking to make better #skinresolutions this year!
