"Chop and don't change your skin care" is often the first tip we give our customers.
But what about those of us who have trouble keeping to a routine?
Whether it's a hectic lifestyle or just forgetfulness, sometimes half the struggle with your skin care routine makes it a habit.
It takes time
Whether you vowed to change your facial tissues every night for proper cleansing (no matter how tired you feel) or to use the sunscreen factor every morning, it can be more difficult to change your routine for the better than you expect .
Have you ever heard that it takes 21 days to get into a habit? This emerges from a frequently misquoted study conducted by a plastic surgeon named Maxwell Maltz. What Maltz actually said was 21 days is the minimum.
In reality, it takes a little longer to adopt a new habit, be it drinking more water or using body cream every day.
A follow-up study by Phillippa Lally, a health psychology researcher at University College London, found that it takes an average of more than 2 months for new behavior to become automatic – 66 days to be precise.
This is one of the reasons why we have extended our return period to 90 days. Not only do you have more time to try a product, you also have more time to make sure that it really works in your everyday life!
Our top tips to make your routine stick
Keep it simple
The shorter your routine, the easier it will be to stick to it – and this is usually good news for sensitive skin too!
Reduce the number of steps to a maximum of two or three steps per morning or evening as you get used to a new routine.
For example: moisturizer and sun protection factor in the morning, thorough cleaning and facial oil at night.
From the eyes, from the head.
Products for sensitive skin are often somewhat deficient in the packaging department.
We have carefully designed each Pai product so that it not only feels wonderful, but also looks great on your bathroom shelf.
Give your skin care a place of honor and it is much more likely that you will remember to use it!
Never far from your phone? Use it to your advantage and use it to set reminders for the products you forgot.
This is particularly useful for booster products that we use less often, such as masks or peels.
