Taking care of your skin is no trifling matter. We all want our skin to look its best. And even whilst you may not feel you’re that bothered about it, you still wouldn’t want to have bad skin that's dry, unhealthy, and tired, correct?

Well, what if I were to tell you there’s a way to look after your skin for less? That’s right, with loads of products from big brands available to you (all for a good price, I might add), Poundstretcher is here to help!

From nourishing creams, facial scrubs, body lotions, and more, there's a world of skin care products that are great for your daily life.

When To Start Using Skin Care Products

There is no defined or set age when you should or shouldn’t start using skin care products. It's all about a matter of turning to them when and if your skin needs attention.

For example, if you have dry skin then you should make sure to moisturise. Or if you start to develop acne then you can use exfoliating products to combat it. Everyone is different and unique; no matter your gender, race, or ethnicity, no one's skin is exactly the same.

With children, there is less of a need for skin care in regards to blemishes or exfoliation. Usually, dry skin issues and products such as sunscreen and aftersun is all they'd need. However, it’s when you arrive at your teens onwards where your skin becomes more of a priority.

As mentioned before, the focus is to use it when you need it most and continue to apply it long enough for the desired effects to show.

When To Use Skin Care Products

So, you know of some of the products that are available to you, but when is the best time to apply them?

It all depends, once again, in when you feel the need to use them. However, when it comes to moisturising and facial scrubs, it's best to use them every day, all year-round. That's right, even in the colder months in the year it's a great idea to apply moisturisers, body butters, lotions, or creams to help your body stay hydrated for silky smooth skin for the whole year to come.

The matter is that just how often is healthy? When should you be applying these facial scrubs and recovery oils?

Well, your face needs to be ideally cleaned and moisturised every morning and then once again in the evening. First, wash your face and apply the cream to your cleansed face, and from there gently rub it into your skin until fully absorbed.

With facial scrubs, it's the same except without the absorption element and you end with another wash. Cleanse with warm water, apply with a good rub, and then clear it off your face. Simple.

With your body, you could use the aforementioned macadamia oil extract body butter to hydrate and soften your skin, leaving it feeling healthy and smooth. Apply to your entire body (or in areas where you feel needs the most attention) and rub gently.

It all boils down to never neglecting your skin on a daily basis. Applying moisturisers, creams, and cleansers to your body year-round is a great way to keep it silky, whilst making sure to add daily scrubs twice a day for day and night effectiveness.

Additional Extras

A great way to apply some of these products? With the help of these Simply Cotton round cotton wool (160 pack), a set of 100% pure pads that are strong yet soft, and completely perfect for all manner of purposes.

Cleansers and face washes are fine to use from childhood upwards, but be wary of relying too much on it. We must also remember that our skin and the pores need to breathe, and sometimes an excess amount of creams and cleansers can clog them, which would then create further issues down the line. It’s all about finding balance as to when and how often you apply it.
