Daily Skincare Tips. One benefit of going to skin therapy school is learning the dos and don’ts of skincare. You are going to pass on that knowledge to your clients when you graduate and open your own beauty salon. However, there is no harm in refreshing your memory. When your clients come to you for a skincare treatment, you can advise them to follow this daily skincare routine:
Hydrate Your Skin
Your skin requires water to stay hydrated. Dehydrated skin looks dull, tired, and unappealing. You need to drink at least eight cups of water each day, but that is easier said than done. You can try to drink a lot of water each day but at the same time, you can use hydrating moisturizers. The combination of water and high-quality moisturizers that add and retain moisturizer will remove toxins and make your skin glow.
Wash Your Face Before Going to Bed
Now, you would think most people would wash their faces before going to bed, but it will surprise you to learn that is not the case. You will find some people who go straight to bed without washing their face, blaming it on how tired they were. It is important to wash your face before going to sleep regardless of how tired you are.
Throughout the day, your face is exposed to the harsh UV rays of the sun, debris, makeup, dirt, and pollution. If you sleep with makeup on, you are committing a beauty crime. If you want your skin to be free of blemishes and minimize the number of breakouts you experience, washing your face before bed is the only way to keep those at bay.
Use a Good Toner and Moisturizer
Toners balance your skin’s pH level. Ensure the toner you buy is slightly acidic. Toners remove excess makeup and dirt from your skin to detoxify it. Before you moisturize your face with a moisturizer that suits your skin type and resolves your skin problems, apply an antioxidant serum packed with vitamin C and D to prevent dehydration and aging. Apply the serum before you apply the moisturizer to increase its moisturizing benefits.
Again, you will be surprised to learn the number of people that choose to go without sunscreen. Do not be that person and if you are, start putting on sunscreen and tell your clients to do the same. Get a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 20 to apply on your skin and any exposed areas of your body. Apply a small amount of sunscreen on your face, including on your eyes and lips.
Exfoliate with an Exfoliator
One of the things you learn in cosmetology school is the importance of exfoliating your skin. Your skin cells will expire after 28 days. You will need to exfoliate your skin at least once or two times each week. Exfoliation also increases stimulation, minimizes pores, and makes your skin look fresh.
If you plan to attend an aesthetics and cosmetology school in your area, you will learn more about the different ways you need to take care of your skin and you can share it with your future clients. It is always a good idea to broaden your knowledge about skincare products and routines to follow.
