A good skincare ritual is only as good as the products you use. While good quality products can help your skin look better now as well as in the future, poor quality products can be ineffective and even cause harm. Nav shared that it's essential to look after your skin because it prevents acne, treats wrinkles, and helps keep your skin looking its best. As you age, your skin’s cells turn over more slowly, making it look duller and less radiant. Nav feels that using a quality skincare line can help remove dead skin cells so your body will replace them with newer, more youthful cells.  She feels that when your skin looks better, you’ll feel better about yourself and have more self-confidence.

Nav has discussed vital components of skincare that you must follow:

  • Cleanser: Wash your face gently with a product designed for your face. If you have dry skin, you’ll want to choose a cleanser that doesn’t have alcohol, and if you have oily skin, look for an oil-free cleanser. Afterwards, rinse with warm water.
  • Toner: Toner is used after washing your face, and it helps smooth and calm skin while restoring nutrients.
  • Moisturizer: Moisturizers should be used every time you wash your face, even if you have oily skin. If you have this type of skin, choose an oil-free or gel product.
  • Sunscreen: Even if your moisturizer has sunscreen, it can still help to use a separate sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy. Choose one that provides broad-spectrum protection and has an SPF of at least 30.
  • Exfoliator: Exfoliators are optional and can be used after a cleanser but before a moisturizer. They should only be used a maximum of once or twice a week.
  • Serum: A serum can help address specific issues, such as redness.

Being a makeup artist she feels that good skin care can provide protection against environmental damage. It can also help curb the effect of ageing such as wrinkles and dark spots. When it comes to skincare, there is no question that prevention is easier than fixing a problem. Doing things like wearing sunscreen, washing your face daily, and using a good moisturizer can prevent invasive treatments down the road. Neglect can result in many preventable problems.

Having beautiful skin as you get older means making smart choices throughout your life. Just as doing the right things now can help you down the road, bad skincare choices can have lifelong impacts.
