It’s time to face facts. We’re all creatures of habit.
You’ve had the same skincare routine for a while now. Whether you like to keep it simple, or you have a full daily ritual, there are some helpful signs that you could benefit from a change in your routine.
Let’s be honest, life is busy. It can be hard to always find time for a thorough skin care routine, and that’s okay.
However, getting too slack with your skincare routine will eventually start to show when you look in the mirror every morning. It’s worth paying attention and making sure you step up your game if you notice any of these 7 tell-tale signs that your skincare routine needs a reboot.
1. Faint fine lines when you smile or frown.
A smile, a frown, a raised eyebrow. Expressions speak much louder than words.
Every single time you move your face, lines are formed. As we repeat the same movements over and over again, those lines start to settle in. Add lack of sleep, stress and bad habits like smoking and these lines become deeper and more obvious.
We can make a conscious effort to get more sleep and stay away from cigarettes but the last thing we’d ever do is suggest you stop smiling.
Fortunately, fine lines and wrinkles can be easily taken care of by applying a regular dose of Vitamin A and Vitamin C like you’ll find in D’Lumiere’s Anti-Aging kit. The combination of our Anti-Aging serum, cream, and moisturiser is a powerful force against fine lines. Adding this combination to your skincare routine will really give your face a smooth and radiant glow. That’s certainly something to smile about.
2. Photodamage and splotchy skin
There’s nothing like the feeling of warm rays against your skin.
Sunshine is a delight that we certainly shouldn’t deny ourselves, but it does have a detrimental effect on our skin. Like everything in life, balance is key.
Photodamage and splotchy skin are an alteration of the skin caused by prolonged sun exposure and a sure sign you’ve pushed that necessary balance off kilter.
The first step to flawless and youthful looking skin is an even skin tone.
The best way to achieve this is by reducing the appearance of pigmentation that emphasises your skin’s photo-damage. A specially targeted formula, D’Lumiere’s Lightening Essence, works to lighten the appearance of age spots and skin discolouration and give your skin a noticeably even complexion and skin tone.
D’Lumiere Lightening Essence Solution is both a natural product and a nourishing antioxidant that enriches while it lightens, to provide a healthy, evened out skin tone.
3. Constant breakouts
You’re certainly not a teenager anymore, so why is your skin still breaking out?
As an adult, breakouts are caused by a number of factors, oily skin and bacteria are common culprits but hormones fluctuating due to stress can also be to blame.
Alpha hydroxy acid, or AHA, helps to reduce problematic or hormonal skin by working as an exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and reveal new smoother skin.
4. Dry/cracking skin
Australia is a dehydrated nation. A recent study found a massive 80% of us don’t manage to drink anywhere near enough water each day. Many of us suffer symptoms of dehydration without even realising it. Dry and cracking skin is a common sign we’re in that majority.
A moisturiser can soothe and assist dry skin, whether it’s caused by dehydration, our environment, allergens, or a skin condition like psoriasis.
Vitamin C plays a vital role in the body’s natural collagen synthesis, assists in fighting free radicals and improves the appearance of ageing skin. As it encourages the replenishing of cells it’s the perfect match with a daily moisturiser to soothe and protect your skin’s natural renewal process.
5. Sagging skin.
It’s undeniable that with age, skin tends to lose its youthful elasticity.
The breakdown of collagen that causes skin to droop is something we all associate with aging, but with the right daily moisturiser we can protect ourselves.
It’s actually quite simple, your skin needs moisture to repair itself. A quality moisturiser like D’Lumiere’s Day Defence Moisturiser can protect and nourish your skin’s protective moisture barrier and slow down any more damage from occurring. hydrates and rejuvenates the skin to improve the skin’s protective barrier against UV damage. With the added benefit of SPF factor 15+ sun protection, you really need look no further for the ultimate in skin hydration.
6. Hyperpigmentation from UV Rays
Let me guess, you make an effort to wear sunscreen in the peak of summer, but otherwise it tends to feel irrelevant. This is one of the most common skincare issues dermatologists see day in, day out.
Even on a cloudy day in winter, there’s enough UV to add up to pigmentation issues over time.
It’s understandable, so often when we think of sunscreen a thick, heavy, greasy substance comes to mind, but when we’re looking at an everyday option it doesn’t have to be like that. Our Day Defence Moisturiser combines a perfectly balanced moisturiser with a lightweight, gentle SPF 15+.
We know you’re busy, so choosing a daily moisturiser containing SPF15+ will give you one less thing to worry about.
7. Excessive oiliness
Youthful skin is dewy and soft. But there’s a huge difference between dewy and oily.
Left untreated oiliness can lead to clogged pores, problematic or hormonal skin and a host of unsightly additions to your face.
When it comes to oily skin, toner is a gift from the dermatology gods. It works like this, cleanser cleans and unclogs pores, toner goes on next to balance oil production and further empty the pores (with extra oil present, a little bonus cleansing never goes astray), finish off with a good moisturiser to preserve your skin’s hydration levels, and you are on your way to reclaiming the power over your once oily skin.
D’Lumiere’s AHA 20% Oily Skin Serum is derived from natural sources like apples and citrus and uses the additional help of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), an acid and powerful antioxidant that has beneficial effects for your skin.
The unique point of difference in D’Lumiere Esthetique, is that it considers all these symptoms and focuses on targeting the cause of common skin problems.
Focusing particularly on aging and sun damaged skin, Dr Lanzer’s uses highly concentrated active ingredients and absorption assisting liposomes to bring customers easy-to add -to your-busy-day skin care that really works.
