A guide to blemish-free skin & the products to help achieve it!
When life pulls us in so many different directions, it can be tough to set aside time for self-care. Caring for our skin is as tricky as any other personal goal. Flawless skin can be the product of luck, time or research. Just as you put aside time to treat your skin, it's advisable to read-up and decide on your personal skincare needs. Depending on your skin type and sensitivities, the perfect skincare routine can vary considerably from person to person. Rather than take any chances, check out our guide to blemish-free skin and the products that could benefit you...
First - a bit about Indie Lee skincare
The Indie Lee skincare range encourages not just blemish-free skin but a complexion that’s healthy and free from harmful chemicals and unnecessary additives. Only ethically-sound skincare solutions like salicylic acid, glycolic acid and rosehip make it into the natural skincare collection. We couldn’t be happy to bid goodbye to the bad stuff!
So - what are our top tips for healthier skincare?
Pick an oil-free moisturiser
Do you suffer from breakouts? While there are plenty of internal and external factors that could be causing them, it more often than not comes back to oil build-up. Making the change to an oil-free moisturiser can make a huge difference - especially if you have oily or combination skin!
While many customers with oily skin have been known to skip moisturiser entirely in a bid to reduce oil levels, this can actually do more harm than good. When our skin is dehydrated, it releases sebaceous oil in an effort to help us - which unfortunately is high in oil. Rather than leave it up to fate, take control with an oil-free moisturiser that will hydrate your skin without adding bothersome shine.
Which Indie Lee product can help? Bag yourself the Active Oil-Free Moisturizer, a small yet effective addition to your beauty collection. Vitamin C, pomegranate and daisy are active ingredients which work together to protect your skin from external aggressors like pollution. The lightweight formula aims to calm and rebalance your complexion, taking a healthier approach to skincare - as well as a weight off your mind!
Introduce an essential oil
In the last few years we’ve started to hear more about the benefits of natural skincare, as well as eco-friendly skincare. After all, why should we choose between caring for ourselves and the planet? Reducing your chemical usage can be great for a healthier skincare routine, as well as the environment. While we’d recommend doing a little research into the natural ingredients that could benefit you (such as hyaluronic acid and glycolic acid), our all-time favourite has to be rosehip oil. Its natural fatty acids and antioxidants help with skin healing and skin plumping - two things that can tackle the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Which Indie Lee product can help? Pick up the Rosehip Cleanser and never look back! This gentle, brightening cleanser helps to soothe and protect your skin, as well as ridding your pores of dirt and bacteria. Not only is gentle rosehip an all-rounder, this Indie Lee brightening cleanser is free from parabens, sulfates and artificial colours.
While we’re often told to embrace our flaws, there’s no shame in a little cover up when we’re feeling insecure. Rather than let blemishes win, why not increase the competition? In addition to your usual brightening cleanser and oil-free moisturiser, keep a concealer or blemish stick at hand. Pick one that covers spots while dousing them in blemish-beating ingredients such as salicylic acid.
Which Indie Lee product can help? The 10ml Banish Stick is formulated with witch hazel, zinc sulfate, salicylic acid and glycolic acids. If that’s not a blemish-banishing team, we don’t know what is! This eco-friendly skincare solution will be your best friend when the weather or stress leaves you feeling run down.
