Most people don’t know where to start when it comes to a good skincare routine. The main concerns people have when starting out is what products do I use, and what order do I apply them in? A skincare routine is only as good as the products you are using! Your skin is exposed to the sun and elements all the time, so we need to make sure we are replenishing our skin. You should always apply products in order from thinnest to thickest to ensure all products are able to penetrate the skin. This skincare routine will give you a list of the best products and what order to use them in.
Step 1: Cleanser
Start by removing any makeup then cleansing your skin with your favourite cleanser. You should massage your cleanser into your face for at least a minute. You should always start off your skincare with a clean face to reduce bacteria build up. Gently pat your face dry with a cloth or towel leaving your skin slightly damp.
Step 2: Water-based Serums
Next in your skincare routine is applying Hyaluronic Acid serum. Thin Lizzy’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum includes sodium hyaluronate which is the salt form of hyaluronic acid that allows it to penetrate the top layer of the skin deeper and deliver even better results.
Hyaluronic Acid is a staple in every IT girl’s skincare regimen to leave your skin hydrated, glowy and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid works by binding to water molecules which increases the water content in the skin. Hydrated skin also works as an anti-aging ingredient as your skin looks more plump, healthier, and reduces fine lines.
Hyaluronic Acid should be applied first in your skincare routine as it is a lightweight water-based product, if you apply it over other products like oils it will sit on top of that barrier rather than soaking into your skin. Hyaluronic acid is a moisture magnet, applying it to damp skin will help your skin hold onto the moisture and leave your skin hydrated and plump.
After cleansing your face with your favourite cleanser and while your skin is still slightly damp apply a 4-5 drops of Thin Lizzy Hyaluronic Acid Serum to your face and press into your skin.
Step 3: Serums
After you have applied your water-based serum you move onto face serums that are a heavier formula. Thin Lizzy’s Caviar 3R is perfect for your next step, it is a multi-use product, you can use it as a serum in part of your skincare routine, as a stand-alone moisturiser, or apply a thicker amount for a 5-minute mask.
Caviar 3R is rich in bioactive ingredients and amino acids that give you proven results. Caviar 3R hydrates skin, helps reduce texture on skin and helps reduce acne. Caviar 3R is designed to repair, renew, and rejuvenate at the cellular level to leave your skin hydrated for longer, reduce skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and help reduce acne.
After Hyaluronic Acid apply one to two spoons of Thin Lizzy’s Caviar 3R and gently rub in.
Step 4: Moisturiser
Moisturiser is a must in every skincare routine no matter your skin type! Moisturiser hydrates your skin and helps absorb all the products underneath by acting as a barrier, this makes the products more effective.
Thin Lizzy’s Real Complexion Cream is a great product for this step. Real Complexion Cream instantly boosts skin hydration, smooths out the appearance of fine lines, brightens the skin and reduces the appearance of redness, blemishes, pores, scars, darks circles and uneven skin tone. This 8in1 formula uses hyaluronic acid and niacinamide combined with other active ingredients to provide anti-aging, wrinkle smoothing and amazing moisturising benefits for all skin types. Perfect for those no makeup days when you still want to look flawless without makeup. Real Complexion Cream can be used in the daytime before sunscreen or at night-time in your usual routine.
Apply a few pumps of Real Complexion to your face morning and night and gently rub in.
Step 5: Sunscreen
Every good skincare routine needs to include a daily SPF. Most people think you only need to wear sunscreen in summer but even on cloudy days and through windows your skin can be exposed to UV radiation. Sun damage adds up over the years and can result in sun damage, skin cancer and wrinkles.
Apply your favourite sunscreen every morning to face and neck.
Step 6: Lip Mask
Finish off your skincare routine by giving your lips some love. A lip mask is a great addition to any skincare routine as it works to heal your lips and keep them hydrated for longer than a regular lip balm.
Thin Lizzy’s 3in1 Intense Hydration Lip Mask is enriched with hyaluronic acid and extracts from mango butter to nourish your lips with deep hydration. This lip mask prevents dry chapped lips, gently exfoliates, removes dead skin cells, and make your lips look naturally plumper, plus it gives your lips a great glossy finish.
Apply 3in1 Intense Hydration Lip Mask as the last step of your skincare routine then top up as needed throughout the day.
