5 Skincare Tips for a Healthy, Glowing Face
Updated: May 31
Like most things, there’s a right way and a wrong way to go about things. That includes washing your face! All of the steps in your facial routine — from the time you turn on the water until the time you add your moisturizer — could be standing in between you and even more beautiful, clearer skin.
At D’Auria Esthetics and Wellness, we are committed to having you look and feel your best — and that starts with healthy skin! Here we shed light on some easy things you can do to achieve it:
1. Avoid using face wipes
Using face wipes causes you to pull and tug at your skin to remove your eye makeup. But they should only be used for emergency. Proper cleansing with the right cleansing products and good old-fashioned warm water are two of the most important factors for clear, healthy skin.
2 Go for lukewarm water temperature
Hot water can cause irritation, dry skin, and blood vessel to rupture. Ice-cold water can be just as bad. Instead, always choose lukewarm water to wash your face and you'll start seeing results.
3. Take your time
Think of washing your face as part of your “self-care” routine and not a chore. Take your time massaging your cleanser into your face without scrubbing. Make sure nothing is left behind especially around your temples, forehead, and neck.
4. Check the ingredients:
One of the most common ingredients to avoid is parabens, which are chemicals used as preservatives in almost all skin care products such as shampoo, makeup, cleansers, lotions, and others. They’ve been linked to breast cancer, and they also act as a hormone disruptor.
5. Exfoliate twice a week
Over exfoliating can lead to dryness, irritation, inflammation and even infection. On the flip side not exfoliating will result in dull, clogged skin that is more prone to acne and dryness. In addition you’re not reaping the benefits of your serums and moisturizers because all those dead skin cells are getting in the way of absorption. Once you start exfoliating, the results are often fast and immediate: fewer blackheads and pimples; a smooth texture and even tone; and best of all, a fresh-faced glow.
Having a great skin care routine isn’t complicated. At D'Auria Esthetics & Wellness, we are devoted to helping our clients discover absolute wellness — through esthetics, wellness coaching and holistic nutrition. For more information, contact us today.
