The Investment Of A Lifetime: Why Skincare Matters

Our skin is the largest organ of our body, and just like any other vital organ, it deserves care and attention. Yet, for many of us, skincare can feel like an afterthought or even a chore. But hear me out: investing in a good skincare routine is more than just about looking good, it’s also about having consideration for your overall health and well-being…

Beyond Superficial: The Benefits Of Healthy Skin

Sure, a good skincare routine can leave you with a radiant complexion, but the benefits go far deeper. Here’s why you should consider skincare an investment:

  • Prevention Is Key: A consistent skincare routine can help prevent future damage from sun exposure, pollution, and even bad habits such as smoking.
  • Fight The Signs Of Ageing: Early intervention with products that contain antioxidants and other science-backed ingredients can help to slow down the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.
  • Confidence Booster: When your skin feels healthy and looks its very best it works wonders for self-confidence.
  • Improved Overall Health: Healthy skin acts as a barrier against harmful toxins and bacteria. A good skincare routine can help to prevent infections and keep your entire body functioning optimally.

Making Your Investment Work

Now, let’s talk about getting the most out of your skincare investment. Remember, there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to skin, so here are some top tips:

  • Know Your Skin Type: Understanding if your skin is dry, oily, or a combination is crucial for choosing the right products for you.
  • Consult A Dermatologist: A dermatologist can assess your skin’s unique needs and recommend a personalised skincare routine to achieve the very best results for you.
  • Quality Over Quantity: Try to invest in a few high-quality products rather than a cabinet full of general supermarket options.
  • Consistency Is Key: Build a routine and stick to it if you want to achieve and maintain your results.

My Refresh Skincare Beauty Picks

Refresh Skincare is a hub for all things beauty! I stumbled upon their website whilst browsing for a lip and under eye treatment to keep me looking and feeling refreshed for the summer. I tend to get dry lips and dark circles under my eyes in the summer, which I put down to dehydration during these warmer months and like to experiment with new brands and products to always keep up with the latest innovative skincare.

It’s all too easy to get stuck in a rut with skincare, to stick to what you know and never update your go-to products, despite age and lifestyle changes making your skin entirely different to what it was when you first discovered them. So I picked up a few new pieces that I’ve never tried before for my eyes, lips and face to keep me sparkling through summer with a healthy, plump and natural complexion. I chose the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask EX Berry, iUNIK Vitamin Hyaluronic Acid Vitalizing Toner, Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule 5X and SKINFOOD Black Cherry Retinol 0.1 Eye Cream.

The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask EX Berry comes in a 20g glass jar and is amazing for melting away flaky skin to prevent chapping, cracking and picking. You simply apply the lip mask before bed to wake up to lips that are smooth, supple and beautifully hydrated by morning. Its Moisture Wrap technology contains hyaluronic acid and minerals to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and can also be used during the day for an instant lip boost. Naturally enriched with Vitamin C and antioxidants from raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, goji berries and blueberries this mask is my new go-to lip all-in-one.

The iUNIK Vitamin Hyaluronic Acid Vitalizing Toner comes in a generous 200ml bottle and contains 45% hyaluronic acid for intense, long-lasting hydration. With the addition of 5% hippophae rhamnoides fruit extract expertly nourishing and brightening the skin at the same time. With a gel-like texture it has such a rapid absorption rate and leaves my skin feeling so hydrated and nourished. I apply it to my face after cleansing and it leaves my complexion so beautifully balanced and soft.

The SKINFOOD Black Cherry Retinol 0.1 Eye Cream is literally a game changer! It comes in a 30ml tube and tackles fine lines, wrinkles and tired-looking eyes. Enriched with retinol and black cherry extract, it expertly delivers anti-aging benefits whilst being deeply hydrating and rejuvenating for the delicate skin around the eyes.

Helping to stimulate collagen production, improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, its black cherry extract provides antioxidant protection to combat free radical damage and promote skin renewal. Fast-absorbing, the lightweight formula penetrates deeply into the skin to moisture, nourish and achieve long-lasting hydration which makes my foundation sit beautifully without creasing and caking. With regular use, the overall texture and tone of the under eye skin will improve as you build up usage gradually. I apply couple of dots to my under eyes a few times per week before bed, teamed with my daily SPF50, and it has left me looking and feeling so refreshed and less tired throughout my day.

Finally the Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule 5X comes in a 50ml bottle and contains 77.2% ‘Extreme Biome’ which is a combination of ten probiotics. Its innovative three-step fermentation technology also delivers Lactobillus Gferment to improve skin health, and Saccharomyces ferment with anti-oxidant properties to naturally improve the skin barrier. 

This beautifully revives and repairs tired skin, delivering intense hydration to nourish the skin while you sleep, as it can be applied to the face and neck after toning. Skincare certainly doesn’t have to be overly expensive or time-consuming. By investing a little time and effort into finding the right routine that works best for you as an individual, you can make an investment in your health and happiness too which will pay off for years to come. Where will your skincare journey lead you?
