Why Skincare is Important
Skincare and a considered skincare regimen should be a part of everybody's day. Not only does it help your skin look its best, but it also keeps it in healthy condition and adds a few minutes of pure "me time" away from your schedule. In this blog post, we cover the fundamentals of a skincare routine and the benefits of using skincare products daily, plus the top TSOK & CO picks to add to your skincare shelf.
What is a skincare routine?
A skincare routine is a daily practice of applying skincare products to your face. This could be for overall skin maintenance and health up-keep, or to target skin concerns such as wrinkles and fine lines or acne. A skincare regimen involves a step-process using different products. The basics of a skincare routine look like this:
- Eye cream
Again, these are just the fundamentals. Some trends, popular in Korean beauty, involve luxurious 10 step + skincare routines! Not everyone has that kind of time to commit to skincare, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out. A regimen that covers all important skin bases will only take around 5 minutes. 10 minutes a day, spread over AM and PM, is doable for everyone!
The benefits of using skincare products regularly
There are countless benefits to using skincare products on a daily basis. Both on the body and the mind. Find below just a few reasons to step up your skincare game.
One of the most important reasons for having a dedicated skincare routine is the anti-ageing properties it has. The better you take care of your skin in younger years, the less trouble you'll have with premature wrinkles and fine lines later on down the road. A simple addition of a Retinol Serum from your mid-twenties a few times a week will help to combat signs of ageing and give you a prolonged youthful glow.
Clean and clear skin
Tending to our skin every day keeps it in the healthiest and cleanest condition. If we use gentle exfoliating and brightening ingredients, like those found in our Brightening 'C' Serum, it means that the texture and appearance of the skin on our face is more luminous and less prone to hyperpigmentation.
Helps to combat acne and breakouts
Acne and regular breakouts are common skin trouble that affects adults as well as teenagers. One of the easiest ways to tackle breakouts is to ensure your skin is clear from dirt and excess sebum build-up, which causes spots. Using a gentle cleanser, for example, our Facial Cleansing Gel, both morning and night is the simplest way to keep your skin clean and blemish-free.
Self-care and relaxation
Not only is skincare good for the body, but it's also a great way to relax and switch off from busy lives for a while. A morning and nightly skincare routine is the ultimate form of self-care. Using our Jade Roller Gua Sha Set when applying your products helps to ease tense muscles and take away all the stresses of the day so far.
Keeps skin moisturised
It's important to keep skin healthy and moisturised. This ensures that you have a strong skin barrier and avoid that tight, dry feeling. Using a daily Balancing Moisturiser keeps your skin hydrated and glowing. This means makeup applies easier and that your skin can better protect itself from environmental stressors.
