Skincare Essentials That Models Love
Ph. Engin_Akyurt (Pixabay)
The world of skincare is absolutely massive and having a winning set of products is key, but finding these great products can be a tough task because of how many competing brands there are on the market.
In this article, we'll be sharing which products are most important and why you need to be using them. These items should be part of your daily skin care routine and we think you’ll absolutely love them.
1. A Great Cleanser
A good cleanser is the cornerstone of any solid skincare routine and should be the first step in your regime, morning and night. It's important to find a cleanser that suits your skin type as this will help to ensure that your skin is being properly cared for.
If you have oily skin, you'll want to look for a gel or foaming cleanser as these will help to remove excess oil without stripping the skin. If you have dry skin, on the other hand, you'll want to look for a balm-based cleanser as these will be more gentle.
Cleansing is really important to your skin care routine because it is designed to remove any grime, impurities, or excess oil from your face that could otherwise cause a breakout.
Why not give your face a double cleansing approach like they do in Japan? It's super easy to do as well, with you first cleansing with an oil cleanser before washing and then using a moisturising cleanser to restore hydration after cleaning your skin.
2. A Skin-protecting Serum

Vitamin C is an absolutely essential ingredient in any skincare routine as it has so many benefits for the skin. It's a powerful antioxidant which means it helps to protect the skin from damage caused by sunlight, brightens the complexion, and even helps to boost collagen production.
If getting it in serum form isn't for you, supplements can do a decent job at giving you skin that's robust and sun damage resistant. Getting vitamin C onto your skin and into your diet is something that's overlooked by many, despite the benefits of it being well-known.
All of these factors combined, make this vitamin a real powerhouse ingredient that every model swears by. Many don't seem to have incorporated it into their skin care routines, but we have no idea why.
3. An Spf Primer
SPF primer is an absolute must-have for caring for your skin, no matter what time of year it is. The sun's UV rays can cause all sorts of damage to the skin including wrinkles, sunspots, and even cancer so it's important to always make sure you're protected with a good quality SPF product. Look for an SPF30 or higher on the label.
Using a good primer with a good SPF rating can help your skin from drying out and stop you from ageing prematurely, making you look younger for longer. When buying a good SPF primer, you should look for a product that will give your skin a good glow and is easy to use, whilst also giving you a grease-free finish.
4. A Hydrating Moisturiser

A good moisturiser is essential for keeping the skin hydrated and looking perfect. What's important is to find one that suits your skin type as this will help to ensure that your skin is getting the hydration it needs without becoming too greasy or oily.
Your moisturiser is something that's definitely worth spending good money on because it can help you to look fresh, as well as help you continue to a youthful appearance thanks to the lack of dried and cracked skin. It's worth the investment!
5. A Facial Oil
Facial oils are a great way to add an extra boost of hydration to the skin and they can be particularly beneficial for those with dry or mature skin types. They can also help to balance out oil production in those with oily or combination skin types.
Why use facial oil though? These beauty facial oils help give you a luminous appearance and can keep you looking moist and ready to seize the day. There are lots of different facial oils on the market so it's important to find one that contains ingredients that are beneficial for your specific skin type.
Nobody wants to have skin that's dry and in poor condition, so investing in a good facial oil will help remedy this and help make you confident in your skin. These oils can actually restore aged skin, and deliver vital antioxidants.

Festive Skin? Make it Healthier!
Holidays are for relaxation and self-indulgence but your skin is not always that happy with it. Bruce Green, chartered scientist and founder of SOS Serum Skincare, explains why.

Overindulging during the festive season does no good to your skin. Bruce Green, founder of SOS Serum Skincare, reveals how it goes hand in hand with some skincare dilemmas.
Holidays And Your Skin, What Bruce Says...
"First of all, we throw our healthy habits out the window and enjoy many alcoholic beverages, and eat more sugary treats, fatty foods. Alcohol is a diuretic, which forces water out of the body making it harder to rehydrate. It can cause the skin to look sallow and make pores and fine lines more visible. Sugary foods can result in a quick rise in blood sugar which can cause a spike in insulin. This jump can increase skin and hair oiliness leading to inflammation and potential breakouts. But this isn't me saying not to enjoy yourself! Here are a few tips that can help your skin this festive season."

"This is the big one. For every drink of alcohol, drink a glass of water – the one for one rule. Water flushes out toxins and restores your hydration levels."

"I know it's tempting after a sparkly social evening to reduce or even skip your facial cleansing routine but DON’T! After hydration, this is the next most important factor to protecting skin from party fallout. But be gentle and use a non-alcoholic, mild or no perfume face cleanser. SOS Cleanse (£15) is perfect for this as it is lightweight and rehydrating."
"Give exfoliation a miss until your skin cell regeneration batteries are re-charged. Follow cleansing with natural non-fragranced serums and moisturisers like our SOS Serum (£15) that delivers comfort, moisturisation and protection to the skin."

"Take advantage of an alcohol-free night in your schedule and have an early bedtime. Your body, mind and skin regeneration is crucial and you will instantly look and feel better for it."

"New cosmetics, skincare products and perfumes will often come to you as Christmas gifts but don’t slap them all on at once or your skin could have a freak-out! Wait until your skin has settled and balance restored before trying out a new skincare formulation; your skin could reject something for all the wrong reasons."
With these expert tips in mind, you can be sure that 'festive skin' can be healthy and glowy for the new year!
