Cleansing the skin has been part of daily skincare rituals for as long as we can remember. As the simple days of soap and water have long since passed (for most), however, cleansing options have evolved.
For many, the thought of applying oil directly to the face will be met with horror, particularly those with an oily skin type. Logically, many consumers feel that applying oil can lead to a greasy complexion and breakouts, the very outcome they're trying to avoid.
Have you ever noticed that some people seem to have consistently clear skin? That, even with little to no makeup, their complexion is balanced, hydrated and just seems to glow? Well, let us tell you why.
The harsh Australian climate combined with a mostly outdoor-based lifestyle has led to many consumers experiencing a common skin concern known as pigmentation. While generally harmless, pigmentation appears as patchy skin that is often impossible to cover up. With prolonged exposure to the sun, pigmentation often gets worse over time and can have a severe impact on self-confidence.
From a young age, Australians are conditioned to apply sunscreen every time they spend time in the harsh, damaging sun. A day at the beach. Playing sport. A walk in the park. If the activity calls for outdoors, we all know that sunscreen is a must.
Your complexion tells your story. Whether you're getting enough sleep, using the right skincare products for your skin, or spending too long in the sun, all show up in a complexion that's lost its glow.
While skincare companies are touting ‘hydration', ‘anti-ageing' and a ‘glowing complexion’ as reasons to care for your skin, at Biologi, those things are all bonuses rather than the primary objective. Of course, we all want beautiful, glowing skin that improves confidence and makes us feel as good as we look. Who doesn't?
Stereotypically, men have it much easier than women when it comes to skincare. As marketing campaigns would have you believe, women appear to spend much longer than their male counterparts applying luxurious face masks and indulging in complex skincare routines. Men, on the other hand, can get away with a quick facial rinse, a 30-second shave and a splash of cologne all in super-quick speed!
There's no denying that an effective skincare routine takes precious time out of your day. While you're busy with work, family, social life and everything else life has a habit of throwing your way; cleansing, hydrating, exfoliating and treating skin can often feel very low down on the list of priorities.
