Easy Tips for Flawless Skin
By Guest Author, Claire Hastings
Vegan skincare has become almost as popular as vegan nutrition in the last few years. While we’ve been hearing all about cruelty-free skincare products, now is the time to pay attention to the ones that can be both cruelty-free and vegan. Not only will they not be tested on animals, but not use animal by-products in their formula either.
Vegan skincare products are known to cause zero irritation and nourish the skin instead. If you have sensitive or condition-prone skin, vegan skincare will be your lifesaver.
This is especially true in the cold autumn days when everyone’s skin is prone to irritations and drying out. With vegan skincare, you’ll protect the skin and have many other benefits.
Care for a Dry Face with Serums
You’ve probably been using face creams for ages, to offer your skin the best hydration and supple look. Aside from nourishing creams, today you can find a variety of facial serums that can boost the appearance of your complexion.
Whether you opt for the one made of kelp which can enhance the moisture retention in your skin, or maybe you’d prefer oily serums that you can mix into your facial cream, either way, you’ll offer your skin sufficient hydration and make it look fabulous in cold autumn days.
Take Care of Your Hands
We’re often more focused on taking care of our face, so our hands somehow fall short of the same amount of care. However, you shouldn’t forget to moisturize them either because not only your palms but your nails and cuticles will suffer as well. Go for the creams with organic shea butter and slather on an extra layer of cream every time you’re about to leave the house.
With nourishing vegan hand masks, you can have a nice little at-home treatment, by applying a hand mask and covering your hands with cotton gloves for paraffin treatment.
You can leave it for 15 minutes or spend the night wearing the gloves and wake up with fabulously soft skin.
Improve Complexion with a BB Cream
Protecting your face from wind and other effects should be your imperative. That’s why aside from adding moisture with hydrating serums, you should also consider applying a mineral BB Cream to add more colour to your face without using a foundation (My personal favourite is from esmi Skin Minerals).
A lightweight tinted formula will be a much better option than heavy foundations, and it will offer a natural glow in addition to nourishing your skin. When you need to quickly run a few errands but you don’t want to waste time on full makeup, just apply a little bit of bb cream, add a touch of blush and mascara and you’ll be ready to go.
Apply Face Masks Regularly
In addition to facial serums, vegan face masks will do wonders to your face. When the weather is cold, and you’re under the constant influence of crispy wind, your face will need to feel regenerated again, and the best way to do it is to offer it the best possible care.
Facial masks will brighten and refresh your skin and prevent it from becoming dull again. A face mask with mineral-rich clay will cleanse your skin and thanks to antioxidant-rich sea kelp and green tea, your face will feel divine after receiving such a wonderful treat.
Protect and Plump that Pout
You’ll want your lips to always look kissable, which can only be achieved with nourishing lip balms. Don’t let the cold weather wreak havoc on your lips and leave them chapped and unattractive, but make sure you exfoliate and apply lip balms regularly.
Go for a natural lip scrub with sugar, coffee and strawberry extract which will help you have smooth, plump lips. After exfoliating the pout, protect it with a hydrating balm and rock that red lipstick with pride.
Taking care of your skin is essential all year long, but when the weather becomes too chilly, you’ll need to step up your skincare game. Therefore, follow the aforementioned tips and you’ll have flawless skin despite the harsh weather conditions.
