According to a survey conducted by The Harris Poll, 80% of people want to increase their practice of self-care. 30% of people have experienced decreased energy while 29% reported trouble sleeping.
One way to practice more self-care and improve all aspects of your life is by having a daily beauty routine in place. Check out this beauty routine checklist for the right way to start your day:
Cleansing Should Happen First
The first step to your beauty routine should always be cleansing your skin. Waking up in the morning and washing your face is part of taking care of yourself.
You should find a quality facial cleanser that works for your skin. If you have more oily skin, a lightweight foaming cleanser might work best. If you tend to have dry skin, a cream cleanser is a good option.
Moisturizing is Key
A good moisturizer is also vital to your beauty routine. Moisturizing will help keep your skin hydrated and looking youthful.
Moisturizing helps you look beautiful and healthy and is an easy way to practice self-love. A day cream, which tends to be heavier, is a perfect ingredient to use in the mornings for dry skin.
A lightweight moisturizer with SPF is great if you’ll be leaving your house. Remember, the best anti-aging product is sunscreen. Even during the winter and on rainy days it’s necessary.
Try Exfoliation Too
Exfoliating is a perfect way to start your week and prepare you for what’s to come. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and can improve circulation. This will help your skin look healthier.
Exfoliation can be a bit rough on more sensitive skin so try to limit it to twice a week to achieve results without overworking your skin. Make sure you buy different exfoliating products for your face and your body. The skin on your body can handle more than the delicate skin on your face.
Masks Are Great
A part of skincare that isn’t given too much focus is using masks. Masks are another part of your beauty routine that can help you practice self-love.
A weekly mask can remove deep impurities, unclog your pores, and help with your oily skin. You can buy masks made to target specific issues or make a DIY version at home.
A great DIY mask for hydrating dry skin is made using avocado, honey, and oats.
Do Your Makeup
Another way to practice self-love and change up your beauty routine is by doing your makeup daily. Even if you aren’t leaving the house every day, creating a natural look with a bit of foundation and some lipstick can help you feel productive and beautiful.
If you want to elevate your look further you can apply a lash lift to make your eyes pop. By following this instruction on how to apply a lash lift, you’ll have longer lashes in no time.
Your beauty routine checklist should include everything on this list. A good moisturizer and doing your makeup daily can help you feel more beautiful.
