When we see the celebs, we can’t help thinking how amazing their looks are, how clear their skin is, wooing and wishing for a skin as beautiful and as perfect as that. The honest truth? There is a process behind beauty, so this week we thought it’d be a great idea to share what we know about the best skin care routines.
- The “good genes” tale
We’ve all heard people saying “I have good genes”, and whilst having good genes will definitely be an advantage, it won’t necessarily mean that you will have great skin. A basic tip to start your journey to glowing skin is to wear UV protection all year around. Believe it or not, we are actually exposed to rays even on grey days. What’s our advice? Find a product that already contains natural sunscreen such as wheat germ oil, avocado oil, coconut oil and almond oil, as it will act as a sunblock for your skin. Our Moisturising Oil and our Conditioning Body Cream do exactly that.
- Don’t experiment too much with your skin – it won’t like it
Finding a skin care routine that works for you can sometimes be tough. With the wide variety of products available to us, it is sometimes easy to get caught up in trying out new things, but if you do this, your skin will pay the price. Changing products regularly can cause pores to clog, damaging the skin and not allowing it to breathe. Many skin care products also contain lots of chemicals and this can be harmful to your skin. Try a “free from” product that will cause less irritation and adapt to your skin more easily, leaving it feeling nourished and glowing. At Malée, we believe in providing only the very best for your skin, and we know that sometimes less is more. Formulated with natural active ingredients and free from sulphates, parabens, animal originated ingredients and mineral oil, our products are grounded in nature and perfected by science.
- You are what you eat?
It’s not just about what you put onto your body, it’s also about what you put into it.
If you’re looking after your skin but not caring about what you’re putting into your body, then it’s time to re-think your inner-body routine. Remember that diets high in sugars can also cause the skin to become oily or dry, and you may find that outbreaks of acne can occur. Drink plenty of water, as this will help draw toxins out of your body, giving you a clearer complexion. Eat lots of fruit, veg and high-fibre foods to keep your skin structure strong and hydrated.
- The shower ritual
Not everyone has time for the daily body moisturising, skin pampering session that we would like, but caring for your skin doesn’t need to be time-consuming and costly. Simply choose your favourite scrub (Malée Conditioning Body Scrub, of course) to scrub away dead cells whilst in the shower with small circular motions in dryer areas, and larger motions for not so dry areas. This will help improve blood circulation and will make you feel fabulous. Our Conditioning Body Scrub also turns into milk when water is added, which allows the process of scrubbing to be as indulgent or as quick as you need/want it to be. Hop out of the shower and cover your skin with our Moisturising Oil, pat dry and off you go, ready to start the day.
- Find a do-it-all oil
This is really what we mean by less is more. Having your bathroom cluttered, full of products, isn’t good for your soul or skin. Clear out your bathroom and just pick a few products, including an oil that will work for your whole body. The Moisturising Oil can be used on hands, nails, cuticles, body and also on your hair. If a product works for one part of your skin, it should work for your whole body.
