It is very important to take care of your skin, it’s the only one you get. A while ago I was invited to the opening of new Sk:n Clinic in Bournemouth, Dorset. Sk:n Clinic offers medical-grade treatments and clinically proven products for the healthy and radiant skin. I always thought I have dry skin, but until the opening event where they offered skin analysis, I found out I actually have combination skin. I am so glad to finally know my skin type and for what products to look for to get that healthy and radiant skin. I was lucky enough to also receive a few products from Sk:n to test, and I absolutely love them.
Skin care is crucial, but it also involves more than just cleansing and use of the right products. If you do not get enough sleep or exercise, do not eat healthily or do not know how to manage the stress, then the products you apply, won’t make any significant difference. Below you will find very easy tips for the healthy and radiant skin.
It is pretty simple to get that Healthy and Radiant Skin if you follow these simple tips:
Cleanse your skin
Start and finish your day with cleansing. Before applying make-up, make sure to use a cleanser once again to remove any left-over make-up and impurities from your skin. If the skin is left clean, foundation or any other product will apply easily, that will maximise the effect.
I have just finished my previous cleanser and started using the sk:n Vitamin Rich Cleanser for normal or combination skin. When it comes to skincare products, I can be very picky because I do not want to apply just anything for the sake of it. So, I have to admit, I am positively surprised and very satisfied with the sk:n Cleanse. Sk:n Cleanse is vitamin-rich, it includes evening primrose oil, vitamin A, C & E, and allantoin (moisturising for dry/sensitive skin), so all the ingredients you need to fight skin ageing. After applying the cleanser and removing all excess oil and dry skin, my skin feels so soft – literally screaming HAPPY after the use. I really like this product and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I usually use it in the combination with Braun Facial Brush because it cleanses your face way better than by hand.
A bottle of sk:n Vitamin Rich Cleanser 200ml will cost you £18.00, so not the cheapest cleanser in the market but definitely worth investing in it, plus it will last for few months. The only thing that I would change is the plastic bottle design, instead of current system, I would prefer to see a pump to get the product out. Make sure to find a cleanser designed for your skin type. See sk:n range here.
Apply a moisturizer
After washing up your face, immediately apply the moisturizer. Damp skin will easily lock in the moisturizer, plus occlusives in it can help seal in water that is on your skin.
Depending on your skin type, find the right one for your skin. From the skin analysis at the sk:n clinic I found out that my skin is lacking water, so that means it is not well hydrated. If you think drinking lots of water will help, and also at the clinic, they told me it’s not enough. You also need to apply the right product that will hydrate the skin.
I am using the sk:n Anti-Ageing Age-Delaying Cream for younger skin. Unfortunately, ageing is inevitable, therefore using the right product that will hydrate the skin and help delay the initial signs of skin ageing is essential. sk:n Anti-Ageing Age-Delaying Cream includes clinically proven peptides and vitamins C & E (anti-oxidants), vitamin A, and shea butter. The cream is very hydrating and leaves my skin smooth, hydrated, plus it promises to help regenerate cells. When it comes to your skin care, it is definitely worth spending more for the right product.
This cream comes at cost of £35.00 for 30ml. See sk:n’s full range of anti-ageing products here.
It does not matter if it’s summer or winter, sunscreen should be used throughout the year to counteract UV damage.
When it comes to sunscreens SPF 30 or more, they tend to whiten your skin, what I do not really like, that’s why I usually use SPF 20. I have tested sk:n Sunscreen SPF 30 and I was positively surprised as it applies so easily, the cream is not too thick, it does not whiten your skin or feel greasy. Sk:n sunscreen will lock into the skin immediately. It is such a good product. When we had the heat wave in the UK, I was lucky enough to enjoy the sunshine on the beach, and when I got home in the evening, I was not red at all, win-win. sk:n Sunscreen is light, oil/free formulation that hydrates your skin and protects it against UVA and UVB skin damage. From now on, I apply this sunscreen each morning after the moisturizer. A sunscreen of 100ml will cost you £22.25.
