Skin care is a multi-million dollar business and there is certainly no lack of creams, potions and tonics promising miracle results. New products are popping up every day and there's so much variety that it's a challenge to know which ones are right for you.
Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it needs to be taken care of every day. Most people really want a routine that's simple, effective and enjoyable all at the same time.
If your daily regimen is boring you to tears, here are five inspiring ways to add a little excitement and make you feel good all over.
Aromatic Healing For Skincare Routine
It's no secret that certain scents have the power to make people feel better. When the delicious aromas of healing Young Living Essential Oils are combined with skin care, you've got an all-around positive experience.
Certain essential oils have been known to calm skin irritations as well as reduce blemishes and even soften aging skin. These amazing benefits, coupled with a fragrance that can either relax or invigorate you, is what draws so many people to a wide array of delightful oils.
Sugar Scrubs For Skincare Routine
Formulated from sugar and coconut oil, a sugar scrub is one of the most enjoyable ways to get baby-soft skin. These scrumptious exfoliants are available in a ton of appetizing scents such as brown sugar, vanilla and cotton candy.
Whether you buy a scrub, or make your own, using one of these delectable products can slough off dead skin and make your skin glow all over. Polishing your body with a sugar scrub is best accomplished by using it two to three times per week and avoiding the face unless otherwise specified.
Tropical Sunscreen For Skincare Routine
One of the most beneficial things you can ever do for your skin is to use a sunscreen. Sunscreen helps prevent skin cancer and premature aging, and it's one of the most important products you'll ever apply.
That said, sun protection doesn't have to be boring! There are so many products on the market that will keep your body, face and hair safe from the dangerous rays of the sun and many of them are simply mouth-watering. You can find tropical coconut, mango and pineapple-scented sunscreens and hair protectors that will make you feel like you're on vacation every day.
Peel-Off Masks For Skincare Routine
Adding a peel-off mask to your weekly routine is the most fun ever. There's just something that's so satisfying about peeling off a mask and seeing the dirt and gunk that comes off your face.
Peel-off masks come in a variety of formulas to compliment your skincare goals, whether that's to add moisture, fight wrinkles or combat acne. Masks come in all kinds of scents such as watermelon, cucumber, charcoal and citrus and should be used only once or twice per week.
Always remember to peel off a mask starting at the edges and doing so gently as to not tug at the skin.
Water-Based Moisturizers For Skincare Routine
Moisturizers have come a long way since grandma's cold cream, but they're still just as necessary. A moisturizer needs to be used every day to keep your skin supple and to avoid wrinkles.
One of the newest players to the game is water-based moisturizers and they're a definite feel-good addition. These hydrating creams are very lightweight and don't clog pores like heavier creams will.
They're perfect for summer and come in a variety of fragrances such as citrus, fresh notes or for purists, completely fragrance-free.
Proper Skincare Routine
Proper skin care is essential to cleansing your face and body and maintaining a younger-looking and nourished appearance. That doesn't mean your routine has to be a chore. As a matter of fact, it should be a luxurious experience that you look forward to every day.
Adding today's most beloved essential oils, sunscreens and moisturizing products to your regimen will help you achieve a healthy glow and overall well-being.
