Is your skincare regime suffering in the morning from your need to get up and out quickly? Whatever the reason, you’re not doing your face a favor by applying makeup before you’ve taken some time to provide your skin with proper cleansing and prepping for the day ahead. Here are some of the basics for good morning skincare.
Exercising may be the last thing you want to do in the morning, especially if you are short on time. But exercise not only helps improve circulation by increasing blood flow, it helps to reduce stress. WebMD advises that exercise lowers stress hormones, which are the physiological stress indicators that cause damage to all of your body and that include the skin.
It’s no matter that you washed your face the night before; you’ll want to clean it again in the morning to remove any dead skin and oil buildup. Washing also will help prepare your skin for the day ahead in order to deal with free radicals in the atmosphere and the sun’s rays that penetrate the skin’s surface to break down collagen production, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Plus by washing and in turn massaging your face, you encourage blood circulation to give your skin a more radiant look. Blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to the skin while removing waste products, says Livestrong.com.
As part of your morning routine, consider True Results Facial Cleanser, which is part of the True Results Retinol Active Skincare line. True Results Facial Cleanser gently cleans skin, protects the skin barrier and prepares for skin treatment.
In addition to adding water to your face when washing, you’ll want to drink a sufficient amount of water. Water helps bodily functions and rids your body of toxins.
For the daytime, you won’t need heavy creams. Use a lightweight skin cream for day such as True Results Facial Moisturizer. It’s an ultra-sheer, hydrating moisturizer that helps restore skin’s moisture balance with proven wrinkle fighting ingredients that promote smoother, softer skin. True Results Facial Moisturizer is non-oily and fragrance free.
Protect from sun
When it comes to the environment, nothing is more damaging then the sun. Its UV rays destroy collagen and elastin, which leads to wrinkles. A study reported in the journal Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigative Dermatology conducted on 298 women from 30 to 78 found that UV exposure seems to be responsible for 80% of visible facial aging signs, including wrinkles.
Protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays with a moisturizer that contains sunscreen or you might want to try True Results Sunblock SPF 50. Ultra-sheer, hydrating Sunblock SPF 50 with zinc oxide is specifically designed to replenish skin moisture while providing daily protection from environmental elements that cause sun damage. The light texture cream with a silky smooth feel applies invisibly and dries to a matte finish for the perfect under makeup application.
These are some of the basics for a morning skin care routine. It will take some time, but it’s time well spent.
