As the ageing process begins, skincare should be the forefront of our routines. But as a busy, working woman, it may seem as though there aren’t enough hours in the day for a long and detailed skincare routine at home. However, we had the pleasure of breaking down your daily routine into 5 simple and easy steps.
Step 1: Facial Cleansing
Facial Cleansing is the most important part of the routine. As you can imagine, our skin accumulates dust, dirt, pollution, and dead skin cells that sit on the surface of our skin blocking our pores. All these external factors, combined with the makeup we wear and the natural oils we produce, are a recipe for disaster for our skin.
Cleansing is so important as it gets rid of all these damaging and acne-causing concerns. It helps keep our skin clear, healthy, and glowing. Without cleansing, we would be causing our skin so much harm– from acne to even premature ageing!
The Luma Blue Acne Light Therapy Pimple Cleansing Brush is a wonderful cleanser that uses LED light therapy to clean pores and fight acne. It is FDA cleared and suitable for all skin types, and it works by penetrating the pores on the skin surface to remove any dirt that has built up. When the LED light therapy is used consistently, it can even reduce the number of acne-causing bacteria significantly to help prevent any breakouts even in the future.
Step 2: The Exfoliator
While facial cleansing might be the most important, no skincare routine is complete without the exfoliator. Exfoliation is great for the skin because it can leave your skin looking brighter and younger. Also, long term exfoliation can improve the production of collagen in your skin, giving it some firmness and youth.
Exfoliating is a great way to reduce clogged pores, resulting in lesser breakouts. There are quite a few ways to exfoliate, one of them being high-frequency vibrations. High-Frequency vibrations are great because they can exfoliate dead skin effectively. It quickly deals with the blackheads, whiteheads, dead skin cells, oil, and dirt in your pores.
The Wireless Ultrasonic Skin Care Scrubber is an exfoliation spatula that helps with lifting and deep cleansing, along with blackhead, dead skin, and wrinkle remover. The deep exfoliating therapy is anti-aging, and softens sebum and cleans out the pores, to help penetrate other skincare products into the skin for the ultimate impact. The device is easy to use at home and easy to travel with, so it never has to leave the skincare routine!
Step 3: Nothing saves the day like a good massage roller
It is not just your body that deserves an award-winning massage, but your face as well. Throughout the daily activities, the muscles in our faces undergo a lot of tension and straining, and it is important to relieve them of their stress.
Additionally, a good massage will boost the circulation in your face and stimulates the fresh flow of blood and oxygen to your face. This targets skin issues such as wrinkles and fine lines, acne, scars, and there is an overall rejuvenation of the face.
We suggest using a device to massage your face to give your skin the caring it deserves. The VORA Microcurrent Facial Roller is a solar powered microcurrent face kneader meant to tighten the skin and assist in anti-aging therapy. The rollers release a small microcurrent, mimicking a mild biological electric current, to your body to enhance the lifting during massaging.
Step 4: Follow the massage up with a LED light therapy treatment
Following a massage and exfoliation, your skin will be most receptive to various kinds of treatment. LED light therapy can be a great treatment to include in your skincare routines. It is easy because it is non-invasive and offers notable benefits that include wound and scar healing. The different lights target different skin issues you might be having, so for example, red light is good for boosting collagen and elastin, keeping your skin firm and flawless!
When the red light hits the skin, the cells are stimulated to produce more energy within the mitochondria. As a result, the skin can function more efficiently and repair itself. Red LED light therapy can heal wounds and promote tissue repair, it can reduce psoriasis, and improve skin complexion by building more collagen. On the other hand, blue light works mostly on the surface of the skin, and is most frequently used to treat sun damage. Blue light triggers the immune system to increase its defense mechanisms, and as a result it can even treat acne and other superficial skin conditions. It calms down the skin so if you have acne scarring, you might enjoy the blue light treatment.
The Lumamask LED Light Therapy is a wireless therapy device that is equipped with 7 color treatments! It is ultralight and easy to wear, offering you both comfort and treatment. The LED light mask helps fight acne, is anti-aging, and perfect for an at home skincare routine. With this mask, you can minimize pores and improve skin elasticity to keep your skin firm and youthful.
Final Step: Moisturize!
We are approaching the colder months, so it is important to keep moisturizing as one of the steps of this skincare routine. What you may not know is that our skin is constantly trying to get rid of the water from inside our body. Moisturizing immediately after washing your face, or even bathing, helps retain the much-needed oils, and also prevents water loss from the skin.
A good moisturizer can be the keystone of a skincare routine, as it can result in softer and more elastic skin. Moisturizers contain a substance known as a “Humectant” such as glycerin, an ingredient that is really important for the skin. It attracts water from both the skin as well as the atmosphere to add moisture to your skin. Moisturizing on a daily basis can help reduce the chance of your skin getting too dry, or too oily. Both these extremes are damaging to your skin and can lead to skin conditions like acne.
Even better, finding a moisturizer with other added benefits is always a plus. The Project E Beauty Aqua Collagen Gel is a natural organic facial serum rich in glycerin and Vitamin C. Both these ingredients help boost the collagen production and the added anti-oxidants also protect the skin from the sun. Project E Beauty Aqua Collagen Gel is also a great anti-wrinkle lotion for your that can be used on your neck, arms, and body. Choose to apply it either in the morning, or during your bedtime skincare routine!
So, there you have it! An easy, broken down 5-step routine. Whether you have a busy schedule, or if you prefer to be leisurely, this routine is a Project E Beauty favorite!
