Improve the appearance of your skin in just a few steps and with a little help from homegrown all-natural beauty brand, Herbline Essentials
Welcome to 2015 – a brand New Year that’s filled with so many new opportunities and the chance to break bad beauty habits and start again afresh. So, if you’re sleeping with your make-up on, forgetting to apply SPF when out and about, or not drinking enough water to keep yourself hydrated, now is the time to make some positive steps to change and up the ante on your beauty routine in the year ahead.
1. Stop sleeping in your make-up!
How many times do we vow to do this? Well, all the time probably, until we don’t have the energy to walk to the bathroom and wash our faces! We understand the days get busy, but simply put, if you have time to put make-up on, you need to make time to take it off. Sleeping in make-up, not only marks your lovely bed linen, but it’s the perfect breeding ground for bacteria too. Instead of falling asleep in your foundation, think about how you can re-order your life to incorporate a better cleansing routine. If you doze off in front of the TV every night, clean your face before you turn it on. Do you hate washing your face in the sink, then take a shower and wash it then.
Herbline Product recommendation: Aloe Vera and Honey Cleansing Milk (AED 99) – The Aloe Vera acts as a natural cleanser, while the honey penetrates deeply to nourish the skin. The formula works effectively on make-up and dirt, unclogging pores and moisturing the skin at the same time.
2. Cleanse, tone and moisturise – embrace the importance of a good routine!
Clean, healthy skin is always on trend and embracing the three-step skincare routine really does work, so take the time to choose and invest in some good products that will cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin. It will thank you for it in the long run.
Herbline Product recommendation: Hero product, the Cucumber & Rose Skin Tonic (AED 105) cools and softens your skin. This tonic is blended with a natural moisturiser and mild astringent that will soothe and tone, leaving your skin moist, supple and beautifully fresh. It is especially good after shaving and waxing too.
3. Give the same attention to the skin on your body as you do to the skin on your face
How many of us happily moisturise our face, but forget all about the rest of the skin on our bodies?. Moisturise your whole body every day, using a lotion, body butter or one of the new moisturising sprays. It’s important to replenish your skin’s lost moisture, especially in this colder season. Also, don’t forget to body brush your body once a week, to kick start healthy blood circulation.
Herbline Product recommendation: Aloe Vera and Honey Moisturising Lotion (AED 99) – combining the moisture rich properties of Aloe Vera with nutritive honey, this delicious moisturiser works as a light, yet powerful, detoxifying and healing lotion. As it hydrates, the skin is transformed, becoming smoother and more supple.
4. Don’t forget your SPF!
Sunscreen isn’t just for when you hit the beach. Never forget the importance of protecting your skin from the sun, especially here in the harsh desert environment, as you go about your day-to-day life. On a daily basis, the sun’s UV rays can affect our skin more than we realise. Long-term, regular exposure to the sun can decrease the elasticity of our skin, resulting in premature aging, while too much sun can also decrease our skin’s immune function, making us more susceptible to cancerous cells.
Herbline Product recommendation: SPF 40 Sun Screen Lotion (AED 109) is fast absorbing and protects your skin from wind, sun exposure and heat, whilst gently moisturising. Suitable for all ages and skin types, this lotion can help to heal minor rashes and sunburn. Just don’t forget to re-apply it every 2 hours or after swimming.
5. Sleep more!
While eight hours of sleep might not be for everybody, you know better than anybody just how much sleep your body actually needs. It’s just so easy to try and get by on less than that, isn’t it? Here’s the thing though: your skin, (like the rest of your body), regenerates and repairs as you sleep. This means that getting adequate sleep will do wonders for your complexion and your overall health.
Herbline Product recommendation: Try Herbline’s wonder cream, the Aloe Vera, Apricot & Sunflower Nourishing Cream (AED 141). The powerful Nourishing Cream works by increasing your skin’s resilience to moisture, leaving it soft and completely hydrated. It contains natural ingredients that have SPF properties according to the study of Ayurveda and will detoxify and heal. Pair a good night’s sleep with this replenishing moisturizer and wake up to renewed and replenished skin.
