PUT DOWN THOSE FACE WIPES - LAZY SKIN­CARE COMES BACK TO BITE YOU

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - BEAUTY - WORDS: SHARI TAGLIABUE

Stick­ing to a skin­care rou­tine isn’t one of my strong suits. But like any­thing that we pro­cras­ti­nate over, we are only hurt­ing our­selves; keep­ing skin in top con­di­tion re­quires min­i­mum ef­fort, yet I am prone to em­ploy max­i­mum ex­cuses, which is a one-way ticket to Oldsville.

The pass­ing of years usu­ally sees skin mi­grate from “nor­mal” to “dry”, and that’s why I should be us­ing prod­ucts con­tain­ing hyaluronic acid, which re­tains mois­ture and plumps up the vol­ume.

Oily or com­bi­na­tion skin is tricky – hot wa­ter and ex­ces­sive scrub­bing stir up oil pro­duc­tion.

Prod­ucts de­signed specif­i­cally for oily or com­bi­na­tion skin are your best bet, like La Mav’s Pu­ri­fy­ing Toner and Day Fluid, which is de­signed to keep your skin’s oil bal­ance on an even keel.

Like our body re­quires ex­er­cise, our largest or­gan, the skin, also re­quires up­keep.

So all to­gether now, “Just do it!”
