Looking in the mirror to have a ‘deep and meaningful’ with your skin might sound like a strange concept. However, a new approach to skincare that relies on 'listening' to your skin daily could be the answer to achieving the best skin you've ever had.
What is Intuitive Beauty?
Gaining increasing popularity over the last few years, 'Intuitive Beauty' does away with pre-determined and repetitive skincare routines and instead relies on paying attention to our skin's daily cues (and our intuition) to care for our skin in a targeted way.
Intuitive Beauty is about using your skincare products in loose rotation, based on your skin's real-time needs, rather than a strict regime based on whether your skin is oily, sensitive or dry.
This way, no matter your skin type, issues such as hormonal breakouts, redness, rashes, roughness and even eczema flare-ups can be addressed and controlled on the fly before they can take hold of your skin.
How Do I Know What My Skin Needs?
While the thought of abandoning your usual skincare routine and relying on your intuition may be a little daunting, following some intuitive skin care practices will help you easily choose the appropriate products to apply.
If your skin feels itchy and dry, switch to ASI’s Radiant Cream Cleanser. If ‘that time of the month’ is about to cause some breakouts, reach for the Clearing Renewal Complex. Once you learn to listen to what your skin is asking for, switching up your skincare routine to give your skin what it needs will become second nature:
- Take time to check your skin status before applying any skincare products. Consider oil balance, texture and moisture levels, then choose the products that will help to either counteract, support or boost these factors as needed.
- Be sure to use clinical strength products such as ASI’s range of cosmeceutical skincare, containing minimal but active ingredients that can be layered as needed. Talk to our skincare specialists to find your ASI skincare product options and when you can best use them to your skin’s advantage.
- Be mindful of your skin triggers and how your skin is likely to respond. Did you have a big night out? Alcohol, air conditioning and make-up will probably leave your skin feeling dehydrated - using a Dermal Face Lift Mask will replenish lost moisture. Did you spend a day in the sun? Hyperpigmentation has probably already begun - vitamin B3 will help calm and prevent it from reaching the surface. ASI features a range of products exclusively developed for the Australian climate and lifestyle, so your skin will be well taken care of no matter how you choose to spend your day.
While practising an intuitive skincare routine won't necessarily solve all possible skin problems, it will give you the upper hand in calling a truce on your skin wars.
