Slimmed-down skin­care

The needs of your skin can seem over­whelm­ing, with so many dif­fer­ent types of skin­care prod­ucts on the mar­ket – all promis­ing great re­sults. Un­der­stand­ing which prod­ucts you re­ally need (and which you don’t) will save you time and money – and free up space in the bath­room! But which can we ditch? Once a skin­care es­sen­tial, ton­ers were de­signed to re­move cleanser residue. You don’t need this with modern cleansers, so you can skip this step. It’s also un­nec­es­sary to spend a small for­tune on cleansers that claim to do more than cleanse! Most cleansers with big anti-age­ing claims are un­likely to reach their full po­ten­tial, when they stay on the skin for sec­onds. How­ever, cleans­ing is the most im­por­tant part of your rou­tine and if you get it wrong you strip the skin of es­sen­tial oils or leave it clogged with dirt. Face wipes can be con­ve­nient, but don’t use ev­ery day. Look for a rea­son­ably priced cleanser that prom­ises to be hy­drat­ing and ef­fec­tive, yet gen­tle. Lastly, a ded­i­cated neck cream is an­other prod­uct you can do with­out. Com­bat age­ing signs by ex­tend­ing your usual face cream down your neck to your dé­col­letage. If sag­ging is an is­sue look for face creams that prom­ise to firm and lift.
