YOUR BEAUTY MISTAKES: WHAT NOT TO SKIP IN YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE

Life can be chaotic even at the best of times! Whether you’re a student, a parent, a boss, a full-time employee or all of the above, we know it can be a struggle to find the strength to commit to a lengthy skincare routine. We’ve all skipped a few steps here and there and that’s okay! In order to maintain glowing skin that shines from the inside out, here are some steps you should avoid neglecting in your skincare routine.

CLEANSE YOUR SKIN

Of all the steps in your skincare routine, the most sacred of all which should never be skipped is… cleansing your skin! It’s absolutely crucial to cleanse your skin every day and remove your makeup before you go to sleep. By giving your skin a thorough cleanse, you're ensuring that you remove any dirt or dead skin cells. If you don’t give your skin a proper cleanse, any other products (i.e. those VERY expensive serums & oils) you apply after will not fully absorb and you won’t reap their full benefits. You also pose the risk of falling victim to those nasty breakouts, inflammation or irritation of the skin. When removing makeup, always ensure to double cleanse in order to remove it entirely from your skin. If you’re looking for a versatile cleanser, suitable for all skin types, Domeni’s Fresh Faced Facial Cleanser is your go-to!

EXFOLIATE

Exfoliating is one of the key steps in a well-rounded skincare routine as it provides us with so many benefits, leaving a flawless, radiant complexion. By exfoliating every few days, you unclog your pores, prevent acne and boost your skin’s circulation. Exfoliating buffs away your dead and dry skin, allowing other skincare products to penetrate deeper. It also assists with evening your skin tone and stimulating collagen synthesis. The next step up from cleansing, exfoliating is a super important step which you shouldn’t neglect. The perfect product to help you create a flawless canvas is the Domeni Exfoli-date Cleansing Exfoliator.

MOISTURISE

Moisturising your skin is non-negotiable skincare step in our books! Not only does moisturising your skin leave it feeling soft and looking radiant, it also helps maintain your skins cells and protect them from irritation. Moisturising your skin is another way to fight premature aging and leave your skin appearing plump and youthful for decades to come. Apply a generous amount and ensure to pat the lotion into your skin ( avoid excessively rubbing), starting on your face, down to your neck and chest. For those struggling to find a good moisturiser to provide their skin with a number of skin-loving benefits, look no further. Domeni’s Day Dream Daily Cream is your go to and will leave your skin super soft and luscious.

SPF

Do we need to remind you why an SPF is absolutely out of the question to skip? The best way you can slow down aging is by wearing an SPF every single day! Even in the colder months of the year, it’s super important for your skin! Unfortunately, there isn’t a miracle solution to prevent aging entirely however the steps you take now can slow it down. Using a good SPF daily can significantly reduce the signs of premature aging. We know sometimes it feels like an extra step in your skincare routine but trust us when we say your skin will thank you for it!

CLEAN YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES

How often do you wash your makeup brushes and tools? Ensuring that you thoroughly clean your makeup brushes ensures you remove any buildup of dirt, oils, dead skin cells and product residue. If you neglect to do so, you’re committing a MAJOR SKIN SIN! Depending on how often you wear makeup, you should aim to wash your makeup brushes at least once every week in order to keep your skin clean. You can easily clean your brushes with water and a gentle soap or brush cleaner. If you’re not cleaning your brushes regularly and experiencing frequent breakouts, this could in fact be the root of your problem.
