5 Ways to Improve and Boost your Skincare Routine

Although there isn’t a magic wand that can improve the skin condition, with a consistent skincare routine you can make it look better. The key to a good skincare routine is definitely in the products you are using and the consistency. However, there are ways to improve that routine by boosting it with certain products and tricks. Let’s see how to do so. 


Upgrading your skincare routine doesn’t necessarily mean you should spend a lot of money. On the contrary - many of these suggested ways are completely free, you just need to learn how to incorporate them into your daily beauty routine. 


Add Face Masks

Everybody should first try boosting their skincare routines with face masks. There are so many different masks that you try out, to see if they fit your skin type. From those sheet masks that you can buy everywhere, to DIY masks that you can make at home - there is a variety of ingredients that can make your skin look good. 


If your skin feels tight pick a hydrating mask. On the other hand, if your skin is oily and you are having breakouts, choose a clay mask that will mattify the skin and clean the pores.

Eat More Plant-Based Food

We admit that being in a lockdown for so long now has tempted us to eat more greasy and sweet food. However, eating more plant-based food can be good not only for your body figure but for the face as well. 


Switching to a plant-based diet can reduce inflammation processes on your face. Focus on collagen-boosting food that contains Vitamin C. Avocado, strawberries, blueberries, and sweet potatoes are just some of the food you can try. 


Include Vitamin D3 in Your Routine

Starting to take supplements might not seem like a way to boost your skincare routine, but it actually is a great thing to try. Loading up on Vitamin D3 is a smart thing to do to get your skin in better condition. 


Namely, Vitamin D3 is responsible for the skin’s ability to protect from outdoor pollution and environmental factors that can assault it. It also makes our skin heal better, whether from breakouts or inflammation. 


Unfortunately, people lose the ability to make Vitamin D3 as they get older. It can be derived from food and the sun, but in most cases that is not enough. You should start thinking about taking it as a supplement.

Facial Massage

The lymphatic system is what drains out all the excess water that can make your face look puffy. When you are inactive, or the system is slowing down you can experience dark circles, puffiness, and a generally unhealthy skin look. 


Facial massage is helping to boost circulation and bring oxygen back to our faces. Believe it or not, with only a few minutes added to your skincare routine you can have better-looking skin every day. Start facial massage when you apply your serum, facial oil, or moisturizer. 


There are many ways to learn and incorporate face massage - from Youtube tutorials to using tools, such as jade roller. 


Don’t Forget to Exfoliate

Regularly exfoliating your skin can be just another way to boost your skincare routine. That is because exfoliating is great for refreshing your skin, giving it that glow that many women dream about. Removing dead skin cells from the skin’s surface is important for a daily skincare routine, as well as your makeup. 


You shouldn’t overdo it. Exfoliate two to three times a week. Find exfoliators that suit your skin type and be gentle first. You can even start by doing exfoliation once a week and then increase it.
