In the last two years, many people are paying more time and attention to their skincare rather than their makeup. Here's why you should too.
It will save you money long-term.
Investing time and money into your skincare routine will eventually save you money, although it will take some time.
Learning about skincare and finding products and a lifestyle that works best for you will improve the overall look and health of your skin.
If you're happy with your skin you'll be less likely to want to cover it up with makeup, meaning you won't have to buy makeup as often as your products will last longer.
Thus saving you money that can be used for other things.
It will keep your skin healthy and help prevent skin problems
One of the biggest skin concerns right now is protecting against damage from the sun which can cause ageing, sunburn and skin cancer.
A good skincare routine which includes the use of SPF will help prevent or fight against these problems.
It's important to note that diet and lifestyle also have an important role in the health of your skin, so skincare alone will not solve everything.
Ensuring you have a healthy diet and lifestyle is equally if not more important than investing in good skincare products, however, doing both can only have a positive effect on your skin.
Your older self will thank you for it
I've lost count of the number of older women who have told me that having an established skincare routine is the best thing they ever did.
Taking care of your skin now will help keep it looking healthy and youthful when you're older.
Not only that but taking care of your skin now will make it easier for you to take care of it when you're older as your skin should be in better condition than those who didn't pay as much attention to skincare when they were younger.
Do you prefer to splurge on skincare or makeup?
