These aren’t your basic skincare tips, it’s the best tips (at least some really great ones) we’ve learned throughout our many years in this industry.
No you’re not crazy, period skin is very real. Our hormones are on the rise at this time and therefore our skin takes a toll. It’s likely that you’ll breakout even a week before that time of the month starts. Masks can help balance skin quickly: Clays reduce oil and gels calm redness.
If you wake up feeling dry, then it’s your night routine that needs to change. Make sure to had a use a hydrator and a moisturizer at the end of the day. Don’t know the difference? No worries, click here!
It’s a great first step in the cleansing process, but makeup wipes are not cleansers. Only a cleanser will fully remove all the makeup, dirt, oil, and bacteria!
You don’t have to use a product on the full face. If you breakout on the t-zone, you can spot treat with glycolic acid and the rest of your products everywhere else.
This one is springingly very important. A good rule of thumb is to layer products thin-to-thick or liquid-to-cream. Be sure to let your skin dry completely in-between applying the products too. Otherwise, the product could become diluted.
Sun exposure is the cause of 90% of fine lines and wrinkles. Therefore, daily sunscreen is your number one defense in the battle of anti-aging.
Your skin cannot create, product or store collagen without Vitamin C! Rendering your Retinol practically useless. Add a Vitamin C to your routine to get all the benefits out of your Retinol, and brighten up your skin, bonus!
Glycolic acid peel pads treat lines and dark spots. It’s most effective in individually wrapped peel pads (the pH of glycolic acid can change when it’s exposed to air). Do it once a month for a safe at-home “peel”.
Acne? Try washing your pillowcases more often. Dirt, oil, bacteria, and all the bad stuff can get clogged up in there, wash it more so it won’t transfer to your face.
Treat dark spots using antioxidants during the day to fight pollution and free radicals. At night, apply topical retinoids and/or HQRA to enhance cell turnover to shed pigment.
If your skin is on the dryer side, don’t towel off after a shower. Creams seal in hydration and work best with a little water.
Your skin uses omega fatty acids to produce lipids (moisturizing oils) and studies show that omega-3 supplements improve skin’s lipid levels and hydration
If you’re breaking out along your hairline, it could be from the oil in your hair products. Prevent this by cleansing your face after washing your hair
Getting a chemical peel, microneedling, or a pixel treatment every couple of months can really help to maintain a healthy glow, stimulate collagen and keep fine lines and wrinkles astray.
Put one on for 10-15 minutes after your serums but before your moisturizer, you’ll get some well-deserved me-time and you’ll be doing your skin a favor.
