Circuit Train Your Skin

Just like our muscles, our skin gets used to the creams, serums and oils we use on it day in and day out. At the gym we switch it up by doing what is called circuit training. Now dermatologists are suggesting we do the same with our skin. Your circuit is considered the 7 days of the week, and the idea behind this new skin trend is to use different products on different days so that your skin never gets used to one formula. Varying the products you use from one day to the next also prevents ingredients in the formulas from counteracting one another. It is an overhauling of your beauty routine that will get your skin in tip-top shape.

Below is a quick view into a circuit you can use for your daily skincare, that will keep your skin care regime fresh and renewing!

In the Morning:

Always use sunblock! Sunblock is a must have for the day. Dermatologists suggest you get two different formulas and switch it up from one day to the next. The sunblock you use; is of course dependent on your skin type.

Use a day cream packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants help fight off the damages attained from free radicals. Adding anti-oxidants to your skin on a daily basis helps to keep lines away and skin clear.

At Night:

Use a night cream with retinol. The retinol is like a night-time exfoliator. It will help clear-up your skin, regenerate your skin cells and boost collagen production.

You can switch this up by using a night-cream with vitamin c on alternate nights. Vitamin c infused creams do the same as retinol creams. The vitamin c helps the skin look brighter, younger and smoother!

Once a Week:

Use a brightening mask. This mask will give your complexion a boost.

If you have clogged pores, take another day of the week to use a pore clearing mask.

It is not suggested that you use these masks more often than once a week. They simply have no added effect. It is the same as getting a facial; the benefits do not increase if you get them more often than recommended. You can also alternate between weeks with your masks. Apply a radiant mask one week and a pore cleansing mask another. You will see what works best for you with regards to your time and the results that you see.

This routine will help change up your skincare routine, so that all the products week to their fullest and your skin never becomes satiated of any one ingredient.
