You wash and cleanse your face at night before you go to bed, and provide your skin with potent active ingredients via skincare products, but do you do the same the next morning?
All too often, mornings are rushed, where there’s barely enough time to brush your teeth, let alone use the proper products required to hydrate your skin. However, it’s just as important to implement a morning skincare routine at the beginning of the day as it is before you retire for the night.
Let us take a look at three necessary steps you should always implement into your morning routine.
Do you have a morning skincare routine in place?
Sleep provides your skin essential time to recover, regenerate and replenish for a more radiant, refreshed face.
While your body is sleeping, it’s a chance for your skin to recover. It is during this time that it produces higher amounts of collagen, enhanced by the active potent ingredients from your nightly skincare products.
However, the oil production of your skin will not stop, so you may not necessarily wake up with the same clean face as when you went to bed. If you have oily skin, cleansing in the morning is crucial to keep congestion and acne at bay.
Either way, a clean face is needed to absorb the benefits from your skincare products you apply in your morning routine.This will also help your makeup to stay on longer, as oils will compromise the long-lasting effects of foundation.
A lightweight cleanser such as our Ultra Clear Foaming Cleanser will remove any impurities in your skin and refresh your face. At the very least, cleansing will waken you up for the day ahead.
You’ll need to replenish essential hydration to your skin so that it’s prepped for the day ahead. This step involves finding a moisturiser that is suitable for your skin type.
A more lightweight cream allows you to layer other products on top, such as SPF protection and makeup. Products with a thicker consistency are usually better for nighttime skincare, because your skin has plenty of time to absorb active ingredients as you sleep.
Our Ultra B2 Hydrating Serum is perfect to prep your skin for the day, as it incorporates a Vitamin B3 and B5 as well as Hyaluronic Acid that supports your skin’s natural lipid barrier, smoothing your skin. It’s paraben and fragrance free so won’t clash with any other skincare product ingredients, leaving your face looking hydrated and more radiant.
No matter how rushed you are, it’s important that you give your skin ample time to absorb the active ingredients before you move onto the next step, otherwise you won’t get the full benefits of the products.
Despite the weather, sun protection is crucial to keep out ultraviolet (UV) rays which can penetrate through clouds and damage your skin.
At Ultraceuticals, we have a wide range of protective skincare products – all specifically designed with the latest scientific technology to provide broad spectrum protection against UV rays.
The Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser Range is ideal for every day use, with a complex combination of anti-ageing, hydrating and protective ingredients to prevent the signs of photoageing – including fine lines, hyperpigmentation, redness, uneven skintone and loss of firmness.
The key ingredient in these skincare products is supports the skin’s natural moisture factor and lipid barrier, which works in conjunction with powerful antioxidants to reduce the progression of premature ageing.
Use our Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF 30 Mattifying to prevent that sunscreen shine, or if you’re going makeup-free but would like some coverage, we offer the Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF 30 Sheer Tint.
