Being spoilt for choice in terms of products, and different techniques, means finding the best beauty routine for your skin can be a minefield.
But that’s where the sisterhood can save you.
Posting in Mamamia‘s beauty group You Beauty, a member recently asked:
“For those of you who are consistently happy with your skin quality, what can you put down to being your ‘key to success’ or turning point, be it a product, a routine, diet, etc? What one thing do you think made the world of difference to improving your skin and maintaining it?”
And the ‘YBies’ answered.
1. Retinol and Hyaluronic acid
“A good routine, great products with the right actives in the right percentage. I really think hyaluronic acid has changed my skin.”
2. Ask an expert.
Some members said that finally seeing a facialist – a professional who understood skin – saved them from making repeated mistakes, and set them in the right direction.
“I have been getting skin needling done as well as microdermabrasion every four weeks. I am loving the results!” one member said.
Many people credited a change in diet for noticeably better looking skin.
“I have to say I’ve been really conscious of my sugar and processed fat intake lately and it makes a huge difference to breakouts. I have combination skin but whenever I eat either I break out on my chin, if I don’t I don’t breakout.”
And sadly, that includes limiting alcohol.
“Alcohol can be so ageing,” a member reminded.
