10 Easy Skincare Tips and Tricks Revealed

1. Layer your products from thinnest to thickest

This general rule of thumb is quick and easy to understand how to layer your skincare products. Read our Comprehensive Guide on How to Build the Perfect Skincare Routine for more details.

2. Double-cleanse at night

Cleansing your face twice during your evening routine is an effective way of making sure you remove all impurities (especially if you wear moisturisers, sunscreen and makeup throughout the day). In addition to removing several layers of products, you want to make sure you thoroughly cleanse your skin from dirt and pollution that you may be exposed to during the day.

3. Water temperature matters

When washing off cleansers from your skin, you want to make sure you have the ideal water temperature, not too hot or too cold as it can irritate your skin especially if you have sensitive skin. The ideal temperature is lukewarm water. At this temperature your skincare products will work the most efficiently and remove all impurities thoroughly.

4. Consistency is key

Your skincare routine relies on you regularly using the products everyday. Basically, results won’t show up overnight and maintaining a habitual schedule by setting aside a few minutes each morning and evening is key to achieving the best results.

5. SPF should be last

Arguably the most important step in your morning skincare routine is applying a generous layer of sun protection; and it is vital that this should be the last skincare product applied so you achieve the best protection.

6. Clouds don’t matter

Cloudy or rainy outside today? Doesn’t matter! You still need to apply SPF as it is estimated that around 80% of sun rays still pass through clouds. So to make sure you are always protected, apply your SPF every day, regardless of the weather outside.

7. Apply makeup after your skincare

Although SPF should be the last step in your skincare regime, you can apply your makeup over this. IDUN Minerals Solstråle All-in-one Face Cream not only has SPF of 25 but also acts as a primer for your makeup, leaving a smooth and prepped skin for your makeup products. Make sure you let your sunscreen completely dry to form a protective layer before applying any makeup

8. Avoid touching your face

For your skincare routine to have the best results, it’s important to remember not to touch your face throughout the day. Our hands may have bacteria and other impurities that we want to keep away from our face as much as possible.

9. Clean your skin & brushes

It’s not only important to cleanse your face every day - you also need to clean your makeup brushes and skincare tools. How often depends on how frequently you use them, but a general rule of thumb could be every 7 to 10 days. This is important to make sure you are avoiding bacteria, impurities and dirt from getting in contact with your skin. For a deep cleaning of your brushes, use IDUN Minerals Brush Cleaner.

10. Skincare products can expire

Check for the PAO (Period After Opening) symbol on the back of products: the round pot with open lid and number indicates the number of months your product can be used after being opened.
