Everywhere you look there is a magazine that gives you an article about skin care. It will talk about Botox and microdermabrasion, how to cure redness and how to get rid of blushing. Skin care is at the forefront of everybody’s minds, because we all need to have good skin care tips to help us to flourish. The skin care tips usually point to doing the right thing for your skin. It will talk about cleansing correctly or moisturizing deeply, toning regularly and applying the right oils and serums to your face along with face masks. It’s a lot of work and it’s exhausting, and if you don’t have time for this much self care it can feel like a chore rather than a privilege. These are all things that may be great for the health of your skin but they might not feel too good when you’re doing them.

Being able to put your skin care routine in the hands of people such as Dr. Mendez and Dr. Salloum is the smart thing to do. Skin care routines become tiring and we seem to do the same things on repeat every day without being aware of the results. So, it may be that you’re turning to other solutions to make your skin feel good in a way that you can see it straight away rather than having to wait for weeks to see results of a serum you started using. Of course, these are the things you can do in addition to your existing skin care routine and you can spice it up a little bit. You want to make your skin feel pampered and nurtured, so here are the tips that will help you to do that.

● Baby, it’s cold inside. While you may not like the feeling of the cold air hitting your cheeks, you may love the feeling of cold spoons or ice cubes. You can grab them straight from the freezer and it can relax and rejuvenate your skin pretty quickly. If you pop some steel spoons into your freezer at night time, you can then put them onto your eyes in the morning to reduce puffiness and exhaustion. It will instantly lift you up and make your skin feel more awake, fresher and looking lovely. You could even do the same job with an ice cube by rubbing it all over your face to inject that shot of energy that you need to wake up in the morning. The best part is that you also minimize your pause, which will be really helpful when you do your makeup routine.
● Reduce your current skin care routine. If your current routine is very elaborate with oils, lotions, potions and serums, you need to cool it a bit. Minimize your ritual to the following three: cleanser, toner and moisturizer. This may have been something you saw female relatives used for years, so now you need to jump on board. Keep the serums, masks and oils to just once or twice a month as a top up rather than something you do every day. Being able to cut down your current skin care routine is really going to help you stick to it.
● Get a facial. When you apply a moisturizer, it can feel really nice to smooth it across your skin and give yourself a facial massage. Booking yourself into an oxygen facial or to us targeted aromatherapy facial is a whole other ball game. You’ll be so surprised to see how much of a difference it can make in reducing the puffiness of your skin and increasing the blood circulation to the surface. Your skin will feel relaxed and calm, and that’s something that you could really write home about.
● Get your sweat on. When was the last time you did a workout that made you actually sweat? A little exercise can do wonders for the skin, and when you sweat it out you release a lot of toxins. Washing your face afterwards but not in the shower can help you to feel naturally revived and cleansed. You can pick any sport or activity of your choice here, it doesn’t have to be something that forces you to do cardio!

It’s never a bad idea to take care of your skin if you have the means to do so. Making sure that you are keeping your skin looking fresh and revived is going to keep you feeling confident and looking gorgeous. Focusing on your skin care will help you to appreciate the way that your skin looks.
