We hope you had a great week! This week we're coming back at you with another blog. Thanks to quarantine, TikTok, and maybe a few other factors, skincare has become a huge topic right now and we thought it was a perfect time to make this week's blog topic about how to perfectly layer your skincare routine!
With so many types of face cleansers, eye creams, serums and more, it can be quite the challenge to get the right product in each category for your skin type – let alone know how to layer it properly. Today we're here to show you our favourite products and the routine that goes with it, let's get started!
At Darlings Jewelry we want everyone to feel confident and look bomb! Here are our secrets to the perfect skin! 🤫
STEP 1: CLEANSER
When Cleansing, we would recommend any cleanser from the CeraVe company. their products are affordable, good for your skin and contain ingredients that will help, not hinder your skin. If we had to chose a favourite CeraVe face wash it would be the Foaming Facial Cleanser which leaves your face feeling fresh and clean, and is great for acne-prone skin!
It's important to remember to wash your hands before you wash your face and ensure you have accessed all areas of your face. Don't forget your neck!
STEP 2: TONER
Toner is more important than you think, it essentially is a primer for your face so that it can absorb your serum ingredients better. After cleansing, soak a cotton pad with toner, then swipe it over your entire face, neck, and chest. We recommend using this Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant although it is a bit pricey, this high-quality product will become essential in your skincare routine.
STEP 3: SERUM
If you're like us you've probably just added serums to your skincare routine but aren't quite sure what to do with them. The truth is, serums make a massive difference to your skin and will honestly become the holy grail of your routine once you get the hang of them. Serums are essentially just shots of extremely concentrated nutrients, hydration and antioxidants that amp up the health of your skin.
IN THE MORNING...
It's important to use the right products at the right times of day. In the morning we recommend that you use this 15% Vitamin C & EGF By The Inkey List. which protects your skin from the inflammation and damage caused by free radicals during the day while also brightening skin and lightening dark spots over time.
IN THE EVENING...
Try and find a serum that contains hyaluronic acid which does a great job of pulling water from the air into your skin to plump it up and keep it hydrated while you sleep. We would recommend this Hyaluronic acid from the ordinary!
STEP 4: EYE CREAMS
To be honest, when it comes to eye creams, nothing fancy is required. The main reason you'll want an eye cream is to have something that will protect your under-eyes and repair your skin barrier. We recommend this Olay Brightening Eye Cream which is affordable and will work wonders for your skin!
STEP 5: SPOT TREATMENTS
Ideally, you’d apply your spot treatments at night because that's when your body works it's hardest to repair itself. Try and stick with a Benzoyl Peroxide because it kills acne-causing bacteria. Dab a thin layer of the Peroxide over your pimple and give it at least a minute to dry.
STEP 6: MOISTURIZE
We cannot stress enough how important it is to moisturize. Even if you think your skin is too oily or breaks out too easily... it doesn't matter. ALWAYS MOISTURIZE. Moisturizing infuses your skin with hydration and helps trap all the products underneath it to make the ingredients more effective. We would recommend this Cerave Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
Well, that's a wrap, darlings! We hope this simple guide will assist you in perfecting your skincare routine! Why not add a little bling to your daily routine as well? Check out our fave products of the week below!
