The night-time cleansing removes dirt, debris, environmental pollutants, makeup, and excess oil from a busy day. However, a daytime or morning cleanse is just as important for three main reasons:
- Removes unwanted skin contaminants:
Believe it or not, your skin can accumulate environmental debris in your sleep, so it’s necessary to wash them off in the morning. Dead skin cells and allergens may collect on your pillowcase and be transferred to the facial skin throughout the night. Circulated air (from you air conditioner or forced heated air) can also kick up dust, mold and other environmental irritants that may collect on facial skin overnight.
- Eliminates skin–producing oils and irritants:
Oils can also accumulate on the skin overnight, so properly removing them is crucial for your morning routine to be effective. Managing the oils allows for better penetration of skin products and proper application of makeup. For sensitive skin types in adults, particularly those with rosacea, there is a small skin mite that grows within our skin pores called Demodex. Properly cleansing our pores in the morning removes the dirt and debris that this skin critter lives off and decreases the number of them living on our skin.”
- Prepares skin for your morning routine:
To get glowing skin, I recommend cleansing in the morning specifically to boost skin hydration levels—following up with our Hydrating Complex that seals in the water, which in turn makes the skin appear plumper and more radiant. Cleansing the skin properly prepares a fresh canvas for topical antioxidants, moisturizers, sunscreen, and/or makeup application, ensuring an even finish for your morning face. In addition, a morning cleansing routine is an opportunity to remove any traces of makeup that were not effectively removed the night before.
Importance of using the DrK Hydrating Complex during summer
There are many factors that contribute to dry dehydrated skin. During the summer months, even more factors are added into the mix. We will discuss what each of these factors are and why it is important to keep your skin hydrated in the summer.
High Temperature – With the summer months comes higher temperatures, the heat in the air tends to dry out your skin. Just think about what happens when you bake a cake for too long, eventually the cake will lose its moisture and become dry. The same thing happens to your skin if you do not take care of it. Using the DrK Hydrating Complex twice a day will prevent the skin from drying out due to its constant delivery of encapsulated water into the cells.
High Humidity – Summer months are not only hot, but in some places very humid. The humidity is not good for your skin at all. The humidity in the air slowly draws the moisture from your skin leaving it dry and dehydrated.
Intense UV Radiation – The UV rays are extra strong in the summer and people are more willing to expose themselves of UV rays in the summer as well. As we know, UV rays eventually burn the skin, results in not only damaged and injured skin, but extremely dry skin. Using the DrK Hydrating Complex with a professional SPF product will not only hydrate your skin, but it can also protect your skin from the harm of UV rays.
Heavy Air-Conditioning – When the summer heat arrives, the air-conditioned rooms follow. Although necessary for comfortable living in the summer heat, heavily air-conditioned rooms can cause your skin to dry. The prolonged exposure to the cold air will dry up your skin and leave it looking dehydrating and irritated. Even though you are escaping the heat, humidity, and harmful UV rays, make sure you hydrate your skin while indoors as well with the DrK Hydrating Complex.
DrK Health Tips for Summer
Flawless glowing skin and shiny healthy hair are two things that we dream of having, but are they just a myth? Do they only exist on the gorgeous models we see in glossy magazines or could we really wake up one morning and be happy with the way we look? Of course, we could, “but how?” you may ask…well, by simply making a few small changes to our lifestyle and dedicating a little time to ourselves each day. Just think, by eating the right foods and nutrients we can fight off damage to both our skin and body, have more energy and prevent premature aging. Sounds good, doesn’t it? I can feel the glow already…
- “Water is the fountain of youth”
Drink plenty of water. Our skin not only looks younger but instantly glows when we are well-hydrated. Dehydration on the other hand will have a negative impact on our complexion causing it to take on a dull, flaky, saggy appearance.
- “Your body is a temple but only if you treat it as one”
Eating foods that contain antioxidants like seeds, blueberries, raspberries, spinach, pomegranates, purple grapes, and green tea to name a few will help fight disease and reduce inflammation which is the prime cause of wrinkle formation.
- “There’s no such thing as a healthy tan, that’s what people need to understand”
Most of us love to sit in the sun for hours at a time but do we really realize what damage we are doing to our skin?
Small amounts of daily sun, however, produce vitamin D which is good for our bones but never leave the sunscreen or sunglasses at home as sun damage is irreversible.
- “Don’t rely on labels to give you the information you need. Trust only the ingredient list and your gut.”
It’s very important that we research the ingredients that are in our skincare products, many might lure us with their pretty packaging but could contain harsh chemicals which will do more harm than good, let’s become more aware of what we’re putting on our skin.
- “A clean home is a happy home” – but at what price?
If you are anything like me, you love a clean house, but many of us are unaware of the amount of toxic chemicals present in the cleaning products we use. Every time we clean our house our skin absorbs them so by using non-toxic cleaning products, we will not only avoid harming our skin but also other parts of our body which could be affected.
- “Detox, destress, deflate”
We can eliminate the buildup of toxins in our bodies due to polluted water, air and food by detoxing. A great way to cleanse and rid our body of them is by juice detox which will also provide us with more energy and vitality. If detoxing isn’t your thing, then a glass of water in the morning with a squeeze of lemon is also a great way to cleanse, it will boost your energy levels, give you a dose of vitamin C, help in weight loss, rejuvenate your skin and add sheen to your hair.
- “Eat less sugar, you’re sweet enough already”
Many people have a sweet tooth but refined white sugar just is not good for our bodies or our skin.
Apart from aggravating acne or other skin complaints like rosacea, sugar also plays a huge part in helping us age and if that isn’t enough, the more sugar we eat, the more our insulin levels increase which in turn bring us even more problems from dark patches on our faces to excess hair growth.
- “Get your beauty sleep”
When we are stressed and not sleeping well, our bodies produce more of the stress hormone, cortisol. High levels of cortisol can lead to inflammation, affecting the look of your skin making it look dull and lifeless. However, if we catch enough sleep our bodies will boost blood flow to our skin and we will wake up with a healthy glow.
- “Good things come to those who sweat”
It is true! When we sweat during exercise, we release the buildup of toxins that has accumulated in our bodies. Exercise can not only tone our skin and help us feel better and more energetic but will also improve acne, wrinkles, and dull skin due to the nutrients and oxygen that our blood carries to our working cells.
- “Use plants to bring life”
If you do not have any plants in your house, then now is the time to run to the plant store. Plants increase oxygen levels, help in decreasing dry skin issues, dry coughs colds and sore throats, remove indoor pollutants, improve memory, concentration, and productivity.
