2018 was all about skincare for me. I have always firmly believed that skincare is hands down more important than makeup. Investing in a good skincare routine should always take priority over layering your skin with loads of makeup. If your skin isn’t healthy, no amount of makeup will do justice in bringing back it’s lost life. But yes, your skin will thank you if you take good care of it &&& mind you, start early.
Skincare is a lifestyle & good skin is definitely not a result of some magical serum. It takes time-sometimes earlier than you expect, sometimes way longer than you could have imagined- but the key is to remain consistent & patient & incorporate a skincare regimen as a part of your daily routine.
Also, what’s most important is that you cleanse your skin a minimum of 2 times – once during the day & once at night. Having a good night time skincare routine means that you’re already giving your skin 50% of what it needs to heal & replenish. I’m sure most of us know that our skin heals when we are asleep which pretty much proves why most women with radiant skin dig their beauty sleep & never compromise when it comes to that!
Given the high levels of stress & pollution almost globally, our skin indeed suffers way more than what our ancestral skin endured. You damage the environment, the environment in return snatches your healthy skin away! To combat such high levels of skin concerns & free radicals that can damage one’s skin almost permanently causing pre-mature ageing, fine lines & wrinkles, using a hydrating serum is a must!
Here are my top face serums that I absolutely swear by & won’t trade it for anything in this world!
