Much like every other first that occurs when you become a teenager, trying to find a skincare regime that works for you can be confusing and even daunting at times. Given the amount of information available out there and even more products to choose from…also what works for your best friend might not work for you!
As a budding adult, your skin is still going through hormonal changes, so it’s important to keep a simple but effective skincare routine. So, let’s put an end to the guesswork and lay it out for you as a holy grail.
Cleansing & Exfoliation
You may be experimenting with makeup, strutting outdoors, and indulging in physical exercise, all of which can take a toll on your skin if you don’t deep-cleanse it well.
1. Cleansing twice daily depending on how rigorous your schedule is, should keep your skin squeaky clean and reduce the chances of breakouts.
Choose a gentle cleanser meant for your skin type and use it loyally! You can choose from a gentle cleanser for normal to dry skin types that has nourishing agents like Aloe Vera or if your skin is prone to acne, you’d want to opt for a more specific anti-bacterial face cleanser that keeps your acne at bay.
2. Keeping your pores clean is equally important, but you definitely don’t need heavy skin hitters that will scrub away the essential oils from your face. Just ensure oil & grime does not build up and your pores are clear so that they can breathe.
A gentle exfoliator used twice a week can do the trick! The Super Smelly Glow Latte Gentle Exfoliating Face Wash is a one-of-a-kind mix of Caffeine & Vitamin C that does not act as an abrasive on the skin but clears away all the impurities at once leaving a healthy glow.
Many of us tend to skip this step thinking it’s not important. Stop right there! Toning is the most essential part of your regime, it helps your skin pick up the hydration which got lost a little during the cleansing & scrubbing process and prepares it for a layer of deep moisturising. Toning preps the skin, hydrates it and helps your moisturiser work better!
Even if your skin feels greasy, don’t skip on your moisturiser! Choose a lightweight one that will be comfortable on your skin.
The Nine To Nine Moisturise from Super Smelly, is loaded with the goodness of essential oils and intensely moisturising ingredients to keep your skin hydrated all day through!
Top it off with sunblock and you are done! Always remember skincare is not all-size-fits-all, and once you find your choice of products, just stay at it. Consistency is key. Don’t forget to take care of your lips! Mask them with the goodness of natural ingredients that will keep them from drying or chapping throughout all seasons!
Super Smelly Lip Balms come in smacking variations of strawberry & chocolate, free of petroleum, and will do your lips a whole lot of good!!
