Yes, we are at home all day, but that should not excuse not continuing with our facial routine. The skin does not forget; that is, what we do today with our skin’s care will have consequences in the future. That is why I share the 8 rules that I use to take care of my skin:

Do you know what your skin likes?

Identify what you like and what you don’t like, remember the principle of individuality that characterizes us, we are unique. Probably the routine that favors you does not necessarily favor another person. It’s all about testing and adapting to what your skin needs.

Take care of the skin of the face, neck, and chest as if they were a unit.

Most of the skin products that we use on the face should also be used on the neck and chest, especially sunscreen, antioxidant serums, and masks.

Incorporate antioxidant serums into your facial routine.

They are a vital supplement for protection against UV rays, infrared rays, and pollution.

Serums for the face are not unctuous or moisturizing as your moisturizer during the day and your nourishing cream at night should be; on the contrary, they are light and absorb quickly, they are rich in substances that will benefit your skin for a long time (mainly rich in vitamin C and E). They can penetrate your skin quickly and leave a high concentration of active ingredients in it.

It is important to exfoliate the skin.

Consult with your doctor what type of exfoliation for the face is beneficial for your skin since there is chemical exfoliation (formulas) that dissolve dead cells of the superficial layer and dirt, and mechanical manual exfoliation with micro granules, which removes the dead cells. You might also consider other treatment from a licensed doctor, which can give you information on botox.

The exfoliation during quarantine should be once a week, and I recommend that it be manual. People have a greater or lesser tolerance depending on the method or formula we use; the key is to find that point where the exfoliation process does NOT cause inflammation. That way, you will get rid of dead cells and stimulate cell growth so you can show off that fresh and healthy glow.

Avoid using antibacterial soaps.

We obsess over feeling clean; we abuse antiseptics, alcohol gel, and antibacterial soaps; these have a great impact on our “microbiome” and weaken our first line of defense. Also, alcohol dries out our skin.

Eliminate skin tonics or astringents that contain alcohol.

Use broad-spectrum sunscreen for the face every day.

No matter the form, it can be a cream, lotion, spray, or powder. With which you feel most comfortable. Ideally, you should go for a chemical that filters ultraviolet light.

Don’t self-medicate.

Most medications cause side effects on the skin, take medications only prescribed by the specialist and responsibly, always read the side effects to know if you will find yourself at a disadvantage, and even more so, take action by making changes in your routine and your lifestyle lifetime.

Avoid contacting your skin with the cell phone.

These not only have opportunistic bacteria, but they cause the appearance of acne and just looking at the phone form those horizontal wrinkles on the neck. We recommend using the hands-free option or putting on your headphones.

How To Prevent It From Being Abused By The Weather And External Factors?

The skin is our largest organ and the part of our body that is in direct contact with the outside world. Therefore, it is exposed daily to different external agents. During the winter, these factors multiply, and taking care of it is a must. “Winter, in addition to promoting respiratory infections, has a significant impact on the skin of our entire body. The cold, the wind, the humidity, the changes in temperature between the outside and the inside and the heating devices of the different environments all have an impact.

On the other hand, being covered and covered with our clothes many times we forget that the skin exists. All this, skin type, body’s skin cause it to dehydrate, become dry, flake, giving it a rough texture with a dull and dull appearance, in addition to losing elasticity and flexibility. In sensitive skin, as in tissue of those who suffer from rosacea, often forgets aggravated in many cases, leading to irritation.

Time Of Care

For all that has been said, winter skincare must be extreme and, in turn, must be carried out correctly. How is this? The fundamental care at this time has to do with hydration but also emphasizes that it is the right time for restructuring, thus favoring surface cell renewal and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. As for special areas such as eyelids, lips, or hands, we must know that the care has to be specific since their functional characteristics are different.

For these daily winter care, it is important to have some essential products that the dermatologist will recommend according to the person’s skin type and age. The dermocosmetic market offers a large number of products that provide us with efficacy and safety. For the face:

  • micellar water or cleansing gels
  • a moisturizing cream
  • a sunscreen
  • an antioxidant product with vitamin C
  • an anti-aging for the night

Hands And Continuous Washing

During this time of pandemic and quarantine, the hands are the ones that are suffering the most due to frequent and excessive washing and the use of alcohol gel. We notice them drier, rougher and sometimes they start to turn red and crack. In turn, these cracks generate pain and discomfort. Alcohol gel, bleach etc. They sweep away the hydrolipidic protection layer that the skin has. In this way, it loses its natural defense, begins to dry out, and becomes irritated, producing contact dermatitis. How can we minimize this impact? It is essential to moisturize them with an emollient cream after each wash and use gloves to handle bleach or cleaning products.
