Beauty Clock: The best time to use your beauty products
We all have different skin types, from oily to dry and combination, etc., and we use a number of products to target these skin issues. However, believe it or not, many products are time specific and work better at certain times of the day. By creating a time sensitive beauty routine, you will get the most out of your products. Scroll below for the optimal times that you should use certain beauty products for best results.
M O R N I N GEvery morning you should kickstart with a morning cleanse! Many women are guilty of not cleansing the skin properly in the morning, but it’s at this time that you should give your face a proper cleanse. You want to start the day as you mean to go on, and freshly washed skin is the best way to start your day to ensure that your skin will look fresh and applying makeup a dream! After your morning cleanse, use an antioxidant serum. Anti-oxidant serums are great for fighting off pollution and the general elements. They also help to even and smooth out your skin tone, which is a win and will help your makeup go on easier. And as ALWAYS, ensure that you put on SPF, every day, rain, hail or shine!

A F T E R N O O NDepending on your skin type, your skin will need different products to target these problems. For dry skin, air con and central heating are not your friends. They can cause your skin to get drier throughout the day, so ensure to keep yourself hydrated and drink plenty of water. Also, have a face mist handy as this will add an immediate surge of moisture back into your skin. For those who suffer with oily skin, unfortunately oil and shininess will increase throughout the day. Try not to touch your face as this can spread bacteria around the face. Ensure you have blotting papers on hand as these will successfully soak up excess oil, then gently buff a light dusting of powder to ensure your shine free!

Once you’ve cleansed X 2, apply a topical retinoid cream which is full of Vitamin A. Vitamin A will help to even skin tone and keep pores clear, it also boasts anti-ageing properties that help to minimise fine lines and wrinkles! As the skin rehydrates during sleep, the products you use in the evening will be better absorbed during this time.
