Beauty Maintenance Doesn't Have To Cost The Earth.
Taking care of yourself, that is what we term beauty maintenance, doesn’t need to break or the bank, or become an overly strict routine. Low maintenance beauty is a thing, and more of us than ever are seeing the benefits. From a simple skincare routine to the occasional hair mask, it is important to spend a little time on yourself. With more of us feeling the pinch, the attitude to expensive beauty is shifting. Beauty bloggers and influencers are now beginning to promote low maintenance beauty options, and it’s proving that affordable doesn’t mean low quality.
Self-love is great for the mind, body and soul, and on this page, we are going to explain a few ways to keep your beauty matters management simple. Our guide to easy beauty maintenance will help you to find new ways to pamper yourself.
Easy Skincare Beauty Maintenance
A skincare routine is important to keep your skin clean, fresh and radiant. Clogged pores are what cause spots, and we all want to avoid those, right? There’s no need to go out and purchase a 12-step skincare kit, you only need 3 products, and they don’t have to be big brand names!
A cleanser, toner, moisturiser, are the only three words that really matter in a basic skincare routine. These trusty products will help to keep your skin clear, and they’re a staple for any beauty bag. If you have particularly sensitive skin, there are plenty of brands offering gentler alternatives. We have two such in Ireland, Nunaïa and Voya. Both brands are offering organic and sustainable products.
Treat Your Hair - You Will Love The Results
That fresh-from-the-salon experience has us looking and feeling like a million dollars. But what if you could get the same from home? Trust us when we say that a good quality hair mask is a gamechanger. You can find deep conditioning treatment on the shelf of any budget beauty store or supermarket, or you can make your own, there are some great recipes around using herbs and things from your press.
A hair mask should only be a once monthly thing, overdoing it can result in excess oil and frequently greasy hair. Pair the hair treatment with a face mask and your comfortable pyjamas for the perfect Saturday night in—have a couple of friends round and make it shared experience. We promise that you won’t regret it!
Nail Care - The Basics
Taking care of our nails is another important aspect of beauty maintenance, even if it’s not mentioned as much as our skin and hair. Good nail health is essential, particularly if you like to wear polish, gel or acrylics. Thinning and damage of the nails result in snapping and slow growth. We, at BeautyMatters, recommend using a treatment regularly, most of which can also be applied when wearing fake nails— protecting your nail bed from damage and keep them looking as healthy as ever. Don’t forget your feet in all of this – they love a soak and the hard skin removing.
Combine each of the above for the perfect basic beauty maintenance routine. After creating your personal skincare routine, you will wonder how you ever lived without it. The same can be said for the benefits of a monthly conditioning treatment on your hair. This is all simple and affordable stuff and can go a long way to making you feel better in every way.
