Wondering what you can do to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant all year round? Read on as Bionyx shares some top skin tips!

Keep Your Skin Clean

Rhodium Mousse Cleanser

The first of our skin tips may initially seem basic. After all, it’s common knowledge that your skin needs to be clean in order to feel healthy. However, there’s a lot more to cleansing than many people realize…

To start with, you need to be using the right cleanser. If you pick a harsh formula that’s full of surfactants, you’ll only end up damaging your skin’s natural protective barrier. This will lead to new problems in the long run. Instead, you should be seeking out a gentler formula that, ideally, doesn’t contain any sulfates, just like the Bionyx Rhodium Mousse Cleanser. Mousse cleansers are loved for how they’re suitable for all skin types. They form a rich lather that effectively cleanses the skin but they also contain conditioning agents to counter the feeling of dryness and damage.

How often you cleanse should also be up for discussion. Usually, twice a day is recommended – once in the morning and once at night. However, if your skin is quite sensitive, this may be too much. Instead, use your cleanser in the evenings and simply splash your face with water in the mornings.

One more thing to remember – don’t use hot water when cleansing. Again, this destroys the skin’s protective barrier, which you should be trying to preserve. Stick to lukewarm water whenever possible and your skin will appreciate it!

Master Your Exfoliation Game

Rhodium Complex Facial Peeling

Many would say that regular exfoliation is just as important as regular cleansing, even though it shouldn’t be done every day. While a cleanser cleans the surface of the skin, an exfoliant dives down deeper. It removes impurities that have already settled into the pores. Not only do these pore blockages lead to a dull and congested appearance, but once bacteria enter into the mix, breakouts won’t be far behind.

Exfoliation will also enhance the rest of your skincare routine. By clearing out your pores, the other skincare products that you apply will be able to work their way into your skin much faster. 

However, just like when choosing a cleanser, you need to be very careful about the exfoliator you use. Again, a formula that’s too harsh for your skin will cause damage that can take several months to heal. Our Rhodium Complex Facial Peeling, on the other hand, will thoroughly exfoliate your skin without harming your skin’s natural barrier, giving you the best of both worlds!

Protect Your Skin From UV Rays

When it comes to the various factors out there that damage the skin, the sun is the biggest culprit. UV rays are responsible for up to 80% of the wrinkles and dark spots that appear on your skin as you age. Not to mention, skin cancer is something else that they can trigger, which would affect not only your complexion but your overall health too.

Even though all of this is common knowledge, many are still neglectful when it comes to sun protection. Most of those that do make an effort to shield their skin from the sun only do so in the summer months, when the intensity of those UV rays can really be felt.

However, UV damage occurs year-round – not just in the summer. If you want to keep your skin looking healthy, one of the most important skin tips to follow would be to protect your skin from the sun 365 days a year. And yes, that includes the dark days of winter when the sun is barely peeking through the clouds! 

Keep Your Skin Hydrated

Every single cell in your body requires moisture to thrive, and this includes the cells in your skin. Water is essential for your skin cells to function properly, yet it’s something that many people aren’t giving their skin enough of.

It’s easy to believe that if you drink plenty of water, your skin won’t need any extra hydration. Unfortunately, this isn’t true. Although your skin is your body’s largest organ, the water that you consume is sent to your vital organs first. Any excess moisture then seeps into the skin but, by this point, that amount is relatively small.

It doesn’t help that the skin’s moisture retention abilities decline with age. This means that what little moisture it does receive quickly evaporates into the air. This is why just about every dermatologist recommends topically hydrating the skin on a daily basis.

How can you do this?

With humectants. These are ingredients with moisture-binding capabilities, meaning that they’ll provide almost instant hydration to your skin. Ingredients like sodium hyaluronate/hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and peptides are some of the best humectants out there. You’ll find all three, plus several other quenching ingredients, in the Bionyx Alloy Platinum Synergizing Serum. Not only will it quickly hydrate your skin but it also contains antioxidants that will leave your skin looking bright and radiant.

Moisturize Damp Skin

Rhodium Night Cream

Won’t the hydrating ingredients that you apply to your skin evaporate away in the same way that your skin’s moisture content does?

Yes, which is why it’s important to moisturize your skin after hydrating it. This will create a seal over your skin’s surface, slowing evaporation right down. The right moisturizer will also provide an additional boost of moisture, along with other ingredients that will help you deal with any visible skin concerns you’re struggling with.

Since you want your skin to look healthy year-round, be aware of the fact that you may need to switch up your moisturizer as the seasons change. In the summer months, a lightweight formula is likely to be all you need. However, in the winter, you would benefit from a richer cream, like the Rhodium Night Recovery Cream from Bionyx.

To maximize the hydrating and moisturizing properties of whichever moisturizer you use, keep the next of our skin tips in mind; always apply it to damp, rather than dry, skin. If your skin is damp, this means that there are extra water molecules sitting on its surface. Apply a moisturizer over the top and you’ll be able to trap those in too, saving them from evaporating away. This will give your skin an extra dose of moisture!

Make the Most of Antioxidants

BioLift Platinum Deep Wrinkle Concentrate

Sadly, in this day and age, there’s no getting away from free radical damage. Even if you’re extremely diligent about sun protection, exposing your skin to pollution, which is just about everywhere now, will still cause this damage to occur.

So, what’s the solution? Antioxidants. These powerful compounds have the ability to repair the appearance of free radical damage. Whether this damage is showing as fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, or anything else, antioxidants will go a long way in keeping your skin looking healthy and youthful year-round. 

How do you give your skin plenty of antioxidants? Serums are usually the best way. Ideally, you want to find one that combines multiple antioxidants. Antioxidants always produce the best visible results when they’re used in conjunction with other antioxidants.

This is why you’ll find multiple antioxidants in the Bionyx BioLift Platinum Deep Wrinkle Concentrate. Between vitamins A, C, and E, plus botanical oils, you’ll be giving your skin some of the best antioxidants around!

Apply Your Skincare Products in the Correct Order

BIO-Facial Toner

There are so many skin tips out there that tell you how to improve your skincare routine. However, one of the most vital to follow is to apply your skincare products in the correct order. 

Why is this so important? Because if you get the order wrong, some of your skincare products will struggle to reach your skin. This is why the general rule of thumb is to start with the lightest product in your routine and gradually work your way up to the thickest. This way, those thicker products won’t block your lighter formulas from accessing your skin cells.

If this sounds confusing, here’s a simple order to follow:

  • Start with a cleanser so that you have a blank canvas to work from.
  • Follow up with a hydrating toner, just like the Rhodium Facial Toner from Bionyx.
  • Apply a serum. If you’re using more than one serum, start with the thinnest formula and follow up with the thickest formula.
  • Next, apply a moisturizer.
  • Finally, during the day, finish with a sunscreen.

Focus on Your Lifestyle 

Topical skincare products are great but they’ll struggle to do much for your complexion if, at the same time, you’ve adopted skin-damaging lifestyle habits. This is why the last of our skin tips is to focus on your lifestyle, making the necessary improvements wherever possible.

Take your diet, for example. The food that you eat feeds your skin cells from within. If your diet is high in salt and sugar, this will reflect in your skin. Your skin will look dull, congested, wrinkled, and discolored, with both salt and sugar known for prematurely aging the skin. Meanwhile, if you eat plenty of fresh produce with lean proteins and whole grains, your skin will respond accordingly, taking on a healthy glow.

Beauty sleep is just as important. While you’re snoozing at night, your skin cells are working hard to regenerate and repair any damage that they’ve suffered. Miss out on your beauty sleep and your skin cells will miss out on these all-important hours. Again, this will accelerate the skin aging process, leaving your skin looking far older than its years.
