Start the year by spoiling your face. With all the detox, comes the rehab of our pretty faces. Truth is that prevention is better than cure, and ageing, ladies, is a matter of fact. It. is.happening. But protecting our face day and night before ageing, is way better – and cheaper – than trying to erase lines once they have appeared. We can’t stop the wrinkles, but we can slow them down.
Serums are the must-have in your beauty corner, the wonder stuff. They are easily absorbed and get to work fast. So, for the first post of 2014 I’ve decided to share with you how I take care of my skin everyday (following my yummy mummy’s tips).
To start with I must admit, I, like my mom, am a big fan of Estee Lauder. Here are some awesome products to kiss your skin.
NIGHT: The skin NEVER sleeps, it RENEWS. According to dermatological studies, the skin (face and body) repairs itself at night and protects itself at day (I just learned this is called Catabolysis). So, basically synchronising yourself with your skin’s clock is vital. I started using Estee Lauder’s best-seller Advanced Night Repair when I turned 25, together with the eye cream. They both do lift and firm my skin. And although I might not see a huge difference now, my skin will thank me in few years time. Tip: Do hunt the offers, they cream sets and little gifts, every beauty retailer have different deals. You could either find the set box of both the face and eyewear (always in Duty Free), or the face with a travel size cream.
DAY: It’s extremely important to wear moisturiser on your face EVERY. SINGLE.DAY. I’d say it’s even more important than the night serum. There are plenty of good hydrating creams, but I go for Estee Lauder’s DayWear for All Skin types. What I like the most from it is its SPF 25 protection. It’s a very light layer of protection for first signs of ageing. So it’s the first step on your mid-20s.
