Knowledge is power. In today’s world, that statement is truer than ever as we are constantly given new information about ways to be our best selves. Whether that be taking care of your health, better nutrition, or better self-care, one component that is often overlooked in skin care. There really is the best way to care for your skin and we want to give you the information you need to establish the best routine for yourself.
Step 1: Cleanse
As with most processes the first step is usually the most important and skin care is no different. In order for the rest of your routine to be effective, you need to start with a clean slate. Cleansing helps remove dead skin cells while stimulating your circulation. Most importantly, this step helps open your pores to wash away any dirt, oil, and impurities. OurPore Refining Foaming Cleanser does this for you without stripping your skin of its own moisture. To enhance the effectiveness of the cleanser, women should try ourCleansing Oil & Makeup Removerto remove all traces of makeup before using the cleanser. If you feel like your skin is looking dull, an exfoliator can help bring back your skin’s natural glow. Try adding a few drops of lemon into ourFresh Glow 3-in-1 Brightening Face Polish to enhance results.
Step 2: Tone
Although using a toner is the second step, it should be viewed as the final step of the cleansing process. Toning is essential as it prepares your skin for the next two steps in your skincare routine. After cleansing your skin opened your pores, toning your skin helps refine your pores while simultaneously balancing your skin’s pH and calming your capillaries. If you have blemish-prone skin try ourPurifying Facial Toner. All other skin types will see results with ourBalancing Facial Mist that hydrates your skin while reducing any redness you might have.
Step 3: Repair
People often overlook their skin until they start noticing problems such as fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, or irritation. On a daily basis, our skin is exposed to a plethora of stressors such as pollution, environmental triggers and hormonal changes. This is why the third step in your skincare routine must be repaired. To help restore the damage done by daily life, give your skin a dose of essential nutrients with ourYouth Glow Hydrating Serum. If daily damage has left you with uneven skin tone, try ourYouth Glow Balancing Serum.
Step 4: Moisturize
The final step in your routine is to moisturize. Most people skip this step, especially for people with oily skin. But just like a recipe needs all the ingredients to be complete, your skin care routine needs a moisturizer to be complete. For people with normal to dry skin, ourHydra-Firming Moisturizerreplenishes your skin’s lost moisture while also providing vitamins, proteins and essential acids need to fight signs of aging. If your skin is on the oily end of the spectrum try ourBrightening Sheer Moisturizer which has the same benefits of the Hydra-Firming Moisturizer but works to balance your skin’s own oil production.
As with any routine, time and consistency are key. The great things about our products are that you can mix and match until you find the right combination that works for you.
