Signs You Need To Change Your Skincare Routine Right NOW!

It’s no secret that creating and maintaining a good skincare regime takes A LOT of dedication. So there’s nothing worse than when despite your hard work, your skin isn’t bringing its A-game; it’s oily, it feels rough, or it’s prone to dry patches. If this sounds familiar, you could be making one of these common skincare mistakes. The good news is there’s often a quick and easy fix to address the skincare issue. We’re breaking down five signs your daily skincare routine isn’t working for you, so you can switch it up and make your skin feel happier.

Sign 1. Tight Skin

Cause: Over exfoliation or dehydrated skin
Solution: Change your formulas and check your ingredients

If your skin feels tight, chances are your lipid barrier – the skin’s protective layer that protects it from dryness, sensitivity or irritation – has been compromised. This could be a result of using too many harsh ingredients like retinol, AHAs or BHAs or using formulas that strip the skin of its natural oils like soaps or foam cleansers. Check your products for ingredients like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS, and SLES as well), as these can compromise the skin’s natural barrier. Tight skin can also be a result of overwashing your skin or washing your skin with water that’s too hot, which disrupts the lipid barrier that holds in moisture, so make sure you wash your skin with lukewarm water a maximum of twice a day.

Exfoliating can also make your skin feel tight and sensitive, which is why you should only exfoliate once or twice a week. However, if it’s currently feeling dry and tight, we’d recommend taking a break from exfoliating until it feels restored. To avoid over-exfoliating, examine your entire skincare regime including your toners, moisturizers, and serums, and look for AHAs, salicylic acid, and retinol. You shouldn’t use too many products that contain ingredients that naturally exfoliate or speed-up skin cell renewal. For example, if your daily toner contains glycolic acid, you should limit your exfoliation to once a week and ensure you don’t use the toner on the same day you exfoliate.

To restore tight skin, you need to rebuild the skin’s epidermis by following a gentle routine packed with hydrating formulas and active ingredients like hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. Make sure you’re double cleansing,first using an oil or balm as these will help lock in moisture, then follow with a gentle, water-based cleanser. Finish with a hydrating serum and moisturizer, and a facial oil you have one. Considering dry, tight skin is caused by a lack of moisture in the corneous layer, your number one aim is hydration.

Sign 2. Oily Skin  

Cause: Hormonal fluctuation, weather change, skincare regime
Solution: Change up your regime

The truth is oily skin can be a result of so many things; some are within your control and some are not. It can be down to genetics or it can be due to a hormone fluctuation (find out how  including puberty, PMS, pregnancy or the impact of your birth control. If this is the case;

However, oily skin can also be induced by an aggressive or incorrect skincare regimen. What a lot of people don’t realize is that oily skin is often a sign of dehydrated skin. While we understand this may seem counterintuitive, the fact is when your skin is lacking moisture it tries to compensate by producing even more oil. This is why it’s so important to moisturize regularly. A lightweight formula is ideal as it’ll penetrate your skin and hydrate at a deeper level without sitting on your skin and blocking your pores. Look for a gel or water-based moisturizer or serums that contain hyaluronic acid; it’s an intensely moisturizing molecule found naturally in your body and skin – it’s able to hold 1000 times its weight in water.

things I changed about my skincare routine when I hit 50

A new decade brings the opportunity to switch up your skincare routine. Tricia Cusden, founder of Look Fabulous Forever, shared with us her the beauty changes she made after hitting the big 5-0.

Tricia Cusden shares her skincare advice for midlife

Find a moisturiser that suits you.

Attracting and holding moisture in the skin is the quickest way to make the skin look brighter, healthier and plumper. Liberally apply moisturiser over the whole face and neck twice a day.

When looking for a moisturiser, I keep an eye out for products that contain Hyaluronic acid, Alpha hydroxy acids and Retinol as there are reported benefits of using moisturisers that contain these key ingredients.

Ditch those bad habits

As you get older, you may find your skin is drier than it used to be and requires more TLC. Beyond choosing moisturising skincare products that provide the extra nourishment older skin needs, watching what we eat, and drink has also been shown to affect how good our skin looks and feels.

I opt for a nutritious diet which is high in antioxidants, vitamins and ‘good’ fats like oily fish, nuts, seeds, olive oil and avocados as it does wonders for the natural condition and radiance of my skin.

Alongside this, increase your intake of water to keep your body and skin hydrated. I try to drink at least 4 large glasses of water a day, but anything more is encouraged.

Protect your face from the harsh glare of the sun

Exposing your face to the sun with little or no protection is one of the quickest ways to damage your skin. It’s been said thousands of times but always bears repeating – the trick to having healthy, glowing skin at any age is to protect it from the sun.

To protect my skin from UVA and UVB damage, I use a sunscreen, and a day cream or foundation that already contains SPF as an incorporated ingredient to make sure that, whatever the weather, my skin is always protected from the sun.

I use the Look Fabulous Forever Smooth the Day Face Cream which has SPF incorporated into its formula, protecting my skin through both the winter and summer months.

Summer Skincare Myths You Need To Stop Believing

MYTH: Coconut oil is the best all-natural moisturizer

FACT: Nope, Argan oil is better. “Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so it’s not great for acne-prone skin because it is highly comedogenic, meaning it clogs pores,” says DeMartino. “There are plenty of all-natural oils that are better for the skin and won’t clog or cause breakouts, like Argan oil. Since it’s plant-based, it’s great for sensitive and acne-prone skin.”

MYTH: Skin is oilier in the summer, so you don’t need moisturizer

FACT: Moisturizers are still a must according to Dr. Liotta. “They not only discourage the build-up of dead skin cells by keeping the skin cells healthier, but if you toss your moisturizer altogether, your skin can get dry and dehydrated, and actually increase oil production in response,” she warns

When does Rihanna not come through? Case and point: her Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. When this foundation first dropped the beauty-world gave Riri a (virtual) standing ovation and it’s been one of our fave formulas ever since. The foundation is oil-free and is made with climate-adaptive technology that’s resistant to oil, sweat, and humidity so it’ll stay in place all day long.

It’s medium-to-full coverage but it is buildable, so you can cater the finish to your preference. As it’s also a soft matte finish, it looks really natural on the skin so it’s ideal if you’re going for that no makeup makeup look. And of course, we can’t forget to mention that it comes in a record-breaking 50 shades.

Tip: For a full-coverage finish, use two to three pumps and stipple the foundation on using a foundation brush, then airbrush the finish by bouncing a damp makeup sponge to finish. Set with a little setting powder across the T-zone.

MYTH: People with oily skin shouldn’t use face oils

FACT: On the contrary, people with oily skin many times tend to over-strip their natural oil by using products with harsh ingredients. “Using face oils can help to replenish the skin’s natural oil production, keeping oil levels balanced,” explains Ann Balaguera, national director of esthetics.( find more tips here

MYTH: Darker complexions do not need as much sun protection.

FACT: No matter what your skin color, you still need sun protection. “Damaging UV rays can penetrate all types of skin, regardless of your ethnicity, so even people with dark skin need sunscreen,” says dr Ali hendi, skin cancer surgeon and co-founder of Luminora (a sun protective apparel company).

MYTH: You don’t have to wear sunscreen on cloudy and overcast days

FACT: One more time for the people in the back: YOU STILL NEED SPF. “UV rays can penetrate through clouds and can cause sun damage and premature aging, so sun protective clothing is a good way to protect yourself without having to put on sunscreen on the covered areas,” says Dr. Hendi.

MYTH: You cannot use retinol or other retinoids during the summer because they cause sun sensitivity

FACT: You can still use them, as long as you’re smart about it. “Photosensitivity can occur when people first start using retinoids, so sun safety and protective measures are advised,” explains Dr. King. “After a few months of therapy, the skin’s response to UV radiation returns to normal and I think one reason people believe this myth is because they’re instructed to apply retinoids at bedtime, not during the day. This is because retinoids are often degraded by sunlight, which makes them less effective, not because they cause sun sensitivity.”

Don’t Go In The Sun Until You’ve Read This SPF Guide

Sunscreen is one of the most undervalued and underused skincare products on the shelves. We’re not overexaggerating when we say literally every single dermatologist we’ve ever spoken to tells us it’s the must-have skincare product. This is because the sun is one of the biggest contributors to skin damage; from wrinkles and collagen destruction to dark spots and pigmentation.

How to find a sunscreen for your skin type

“It’s important to select a sunscreen that blocks enough UV rays to protect your skin type. Make sure you choose one that not only has a high SPF (to protect against the burning UVB rays) but one that also has at least a 4-star UVA rating, preferably 5 stars. We know that UVA rays can cause skin cancer, and so sunscreens that protect against UVB only, are not good,” Dr. Friedmann told us.here is more about the difference between the both

Sunscreen for deep skin tones

There’s a common misconception that the deeper your skin tone, the less necessary SPF is, but this is NOT the case! Even if you have a deeper skin tone and don’t often burn, your skin will still be damaged if it’s left unprotected – the damage that we don’t see is actually the most powerful and dangerous. Although Dr. Friedmann does say, “A lower SPF is okay in people with richer skin tones.” However we have to say, what’s the harm in extra protection? We recommend a minimum of SPF 30 with a 4-star UVA rating to everyone no matter how rich your complexion.

Sunscreen for sensitive skin

“Anyone with sensitive skin also needs to consider their sunscreen carefully – whether this is because they have irritant contact dermatitis (generally sensitive skin) or an allergic reaction to an ingredient in the sunscreen – such as a fragrance or chemical. Chemical sunscreens will, on the whole, be the main offenders for those with sensitive skin and should, therefore, be avoided: ingredients such as Oxybenzone and octinoxate. Mineral/natural/physical sunscreens (whatever you want to call them) are the sunscreens you should be using.

Sunscreen for fair skin tones

“I would usually recommend a factor 30 as a minimum, but it does depend on skin type. At least SPF 30 for pale skin, preferably SPF 50.” Dr. Friedman explains that “Fair skin (i.e. northern European Caucasian skin) does not tan very much. Therefore, repeated exposure over time will not change the color but will cause damage and increase the risk of skin cancer. It is much more likely that skin cancer will develop in people with fair skin, so I would recommend not trying to tan through conventional measures (spray tan/fake tan tends to be the safest option). However, if being out in the sun is unavoidable, a high factor sunscreen is recommended at all times and to avoid burning consider covering up any exposed skin when in direct sunlight.”

SPF, UVA and UVB: What does it all mean?

Let’s start with the basics, shall we? SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and, in the UK, is a measure of the amount of ultraviolet B radiation protection. Simply put, the higher the factor number, the higher the UVB protection.

UVA, on the other hand, stands for ultraviolet A radiation and can be measured by the star rating on UK sunscreens. The higher the star rating, the better the protection—with a five-star rating being the best.

If a sunscreen refers to itself as “broad spectrum” then this means that it offers both UVA and UVB protection. However, in the UK, if sunscreen has both an SPF rating and a star rating, then it will also protect you against both types of rays.

People Who Do This Skincare Step Have The Best Skin

If there’s one skincare category that doesn’t receive as much hype as it’s worthy of, we’d argue that it’s cleansing oils and balms. For some, it seems like a throwaway step — one you can get away with skipping and never know the difference. But the people who actually do take the extra few minutes to first cleanse their skin with an oil or balm end up shouting the product’s praises louder than Kanye West at an award ceremony.

Today we’re discussing what cleansing oils and balms are, why they’re a complexion game-changer, and how to incorporate them into your regimen. We’re also throwing out some of our current stans so you can get straight to shopping.

What Are Cleansing Oils and Balms?

Simply put, cleansing oils and balms are oil-based cleansers that attract dirt and makeup like a magnet. The primary difference between a cleansing oil and a balm is the texture. Oils are liquid and tend to be a little heavier while balms are solids and are generally more lightweight. You can use them interchangeably, but if your skin is on oily side then you may prefer a balm formulation more.

How Cleansing Oils and Balms Fit into Your Regimen

Both cleansing oils and balms should be applied as the very first step in your skincare regimen. The product is applied directly to dry skin (even with makeup on), massaged for a few minutes, and then rinsed away with warm water. (BTW, the products are formulated so that they turn into a thin and milky texture that washes off very easily).

So why start with an oil cleanser? For starters, the oils are superheroes when it comes to breaking down and lifting away dirt, grime, makeup, and product residue. Some people even say they can feel hard sebum plugs being pushed out of their pores during the massage process, which TBH is as gross as it is satisfying. Second, those oils nourish and hydrate the skin, making your face noticeably softer to the touch, more balanced, and more glowy. Cleansing oils are also great for all skin types, even if you’re oily or acne-prone.

After cleansing with an oil or balm, it’s best to follow up with a water-based cleanser like a gel or foaming cleanser. This step whisks away any remaining gunk as well as excess oil for an immaculately clean face. After both steps, skin is brighter, clearer, and healthier — without being stripped — and is ready to drink up whatever products you apply next.

Skincare in your Teens

When you’re a teenager your body is going through some major changes, and as your hormones fluctuate, it can wreak havoc on your skin. Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing using products that are catered to your skin type is crucial. It’s also important to remember that your skin type is unique, so the products your BFF uses won’t necessarily work for you

Our Top Tips: 

1. Cleanse: During your teens, your hormones trigger your skin to produce more oil, which causes your pores to enlarge and breakouts to be more common. Dr. Timm Golueke believes “as a teenager, the most important skincare step is cleansing.” Cleansing properly will help remove excess oil and other impurities, and Dr. Timm Golueke advises looking for “anti-bacterial soaps, anti-bacterial creams, and oil-free moisturizers.”

2. Exfoliate: Dr. Jessica Wu also adds that when your hormones surge, your pores are more likely to clog, so you should “keep your skin exfoliated.” Dr. Wu suggests looking for “clay containing products which have natural antiseptic and astringent properties,”and recomends foaming clay cleanser £14.99 her teen patients. Chemical exfoliators containing AHAs and salicyacid are also a great way to clean deep into your pores and help keep blackheads at bay, just avoid exfoliating more than two or three times a week or you could end up over-exfolianting and potentially damaging your skin.

3. Protect: Dr. Timm Golueke says he always tells his teen patients “to use SPF because often when a pimple is healing and it’s exposed to the sun, it will leave hyperpigmentation.”

Ingredients to look for: Clay to extract oil ,(check out our fav drugstore clay masks)Benzoyl Peroxide, which is proven to help break-outs, salicylic acid and AHAs, which clean deep into pores, and tea tree oil and witch hazel, which are naturally antibacterial.

Things to avoid: Food-wise, avoid cow’s milk, and rich and heavy creams (dairy) to help with hormonal breakouts.
