*Bookmark This For Later* The Ultimate Skincare Tips

Knowing some good skincare tips and tricks can be a real-life saver in the world of skincare. From knowing what type of skin you have to getting the most out of your products, having a head start in the world of skincare can work wonders for your skin and leave you feeling dewy and nourished. So as a helping hand, we have made a list of some tips and tricks for you to try this winter season; and as an added bonus, they won’t break the bank.  

Hydrating Masks

Have you ever wondered how to tell what areas of your skin are in need of a desperate boost of hydration? If so, you are not alone! This top tip will answer that very question. Simply use one of your favourite hydrating masks, we recommend the viral Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask which was a must-have product due to the reaction it got online. Apply this mask all over your face and leave it for 10 minutes. Once the 10 minutes is up, you’ll be able to visibly see where you’re going to have to apply some extra tender loving care on your face as your skin will turn dry and would have soaked up all the mask’s goodness due to it being dehydrated in that area. 

For a more cost-friendly alternative, the No7 Instant Results Nourishing Hydration Mask is a brilliant product that will give your skin an intensive treatment and refreshes your face leaving it nourished and cared for.  


Now, if you aren’t already using retinol or haven’t heard of it, listen up. Retinol is a great product to start implementing into your skincare routine and is an OG skin care product. Backed by science, Retinol can help with premature ageing, pigmentation, acne, minimising pores and improving the overall texture of your skin.  

But don’t get ahead of yourself, Retinol is a very strong product and must be used with care. Start by applying your Retinol 2 times a week and slowly build up the consistency as your skin becomes used to it. We recommend Kiehl’s Retinol Skin-Renewing Daily Microdose Serum as it is a perfect product to start with for beginners. Alternatively, The Ordinary Retinol Serum in Squalane is a great light product to start with, it doesn’t include too much Retinol and will have a minimal impact on the dryness of your skin when first starting.

  Our top tip for Retinol usage is the sandwich method, start by applying a light layer of moisturiser, and a tiny amount of Retinol and then finish off with another layer of moisturiser. This will help prevent irritation from the product while still getting the benefits from using it.

This tip will be life-changing… for your skin at least! Knowing your skin type can help you buy better moisturisers that will help target your specific skin requirements allowing you to get the most out of your products.  

A top tip for finding out your skin type is to clean your skin and leave it for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes is up if it is tight your skin is dehydrated, if it is rough your skin is dry, and if it is shiny then you have oily skin, a mixture of them all could mean you have combination skin. This tip is brilliant for identifying what serums, moisturisers and face masks will best suit your skin’s texture and prevent you from buying products that may be too oily or dehydrating for your skin.  

Hyaluronic Acid

This one will save you a lot of wasted product! When applying your hyaluronic acid, make sure that your face is wet or damp first. When you add hyaluronic acid to overly dry skin, all the goodness that this product brings is soaked up too fast due to your skin being in desperate need of hydration. By applying hyaluronic acid to damp skin or after a fast mist it means your skin isn’t in as much of a desperate need for hydration. Therefore, you will get more benefits from your hyaluronic acid and your skin will be even more nourished and refreshed.  

There is some great face mists out there like the La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water and the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. These products are brilliant for sensitive skin, are super smooth and refreshing and even better, they don’t break the bank!
