Busy, modern life (and trying to juggle a full time career, a thriving social life, and – for some of us – motherhood) means that there’s often not a lot of time left to care for yourself or for your skin.
We asked Stephanie-Anne, a product specialist at Optiphi, to share her top skincare tips and life hacks that will help you care for – and fall in love with – your skin in a flash. Read on for her best skincare advice…
Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse
“This is by far the most important step in loving your skin,” says Stephanie-Anne. “Always cleanse and remove your make-up, no matter how late it is. Choose a cleanser that is the same pH as your skin, and one that is able to remove make-up and double-up as an exfoliator. Optiphi’s Facial Cleanser is the perfect 6-in-1 treatment to help save you time while building your natural skin barrier and providing a deep cleanse at the same time.”
Invest in antioxidants
Stephanie-Anne recommends using topical anti-oxidants, such as Vitamin C, L-Carnosine, and Vitamin B3, to help slow down skin ageing. Look out for an antioxidant-rich moisturiser that will also moisturise and protect your skin.
Be sun smart
If you don’t already do so, it’s important that you start applying a sunscreen daily – even if you spend most of your days in an office. “If you can see light, UV-rays can see you,” cautions Stephanie-Anne.
Boost your skin’s moisture levels
Start incorporating products that contain Hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine to ensure that your skin is well-hydrated from the inside out. “Just like your internal organs need water to function optimally, so does the skin – which is also an organ, albeit an external one,” explains Stephanie-Anne.
Remember that skincare is a long-term investment, and that the more love and dedication you give your skin, the better it will look in the long run. Interested in learning more? Click here to find out more about Optiphi’s range of skincare products or to find your nearest stockist.
