After the decadence and stress of the holidays, the new year can be the perfect time to start fresh; to get back to the basics and recalibrate our body, mind, and spirit, so we can be renewed and re-energized for the year ahead. And while it’s no secret that resolutions can be a killer tool for zeroing in on specific lifestyle changes, most often resolutions revolve around our waistlines, our wallets, or habits we’d like to make or break. This year, allow us to humbly suggest the addition of one more resolution: The resolution for better skin. With just a few simple tweaks to your routine, 2020 can be the year of your best skin yet. Show your skin the love it deserves and resolve to make the following part of your regular skincare routine.
#1 Wear an SPF - Every Day
This one nearly goes without saying, but daily application of a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, with both UVA and UVB coverage is a MUST for proper skin protection. Put it on early in the day, and reapply as needed.
#2 Take Your Makeup Off Before Going to Bed
File this one under, something that should be SUPER simple, but somehow just...isn’t. We get it, it’s late and you’re tired, and removing your makeup can suddenly feel like a monumental task, but going to bed with a clean face is the foundation for the rest of your new healthy skincare routine, so if you’re not already taking time for this step, we highly recommend making this priority number one. A dollop of our Vitamin C Facial Cleanser lathered with warm water, and applied to the entire face and neck, will help to refresh and restore your skin’s vibrance, all while gently removing the day’s impurities to reveal a more youthful and dewy complexion.
#3 Exfoliate Regularly
Particularly as your new skin routine is kicking off in the dead of winter, when dull, dry skin build-up can be at an all-time high, regular exfoliation is key to revealing your brighter, clearer, and softer skin. Our Mineral Enzyme Exfoliant is gentle enough for even the most sensitive of complexions, with a spray on application which reduces inflammation and irritation, while instantly buffing away debris and makeup residue with powerful natural enzymes that peel away unwanted toxins.
#4 Incorporate Face Serums into Your Daily Routine
Chances are, if you’re not already the proud owner of a facial serum or two currently, you’ve at least heard about serums and their many (seemingly) magical properties. Designed as a potent delivery system for distributing high concentrations of active ingredients directly to the skin, serums have the power to work wonders on your complexion, pending you choose the right formula for your skin, and you use them consistently. Our Trio Facial Serum Kit takes the guesswork out of the equation, by offering the opportunity to experience the proven benefits of the active ingredients in each of our best selling serums (Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Vitamin C Super Serum, and our Advanced 2.5% Retinol Serum) and determine which formula is best for you.
#5 Begin a Weekly Face Mask Ritual
While applying a face mask can feel like more of a luxury than a necessity, there’s certainly no harm in incorporating time to de-stress and detoxify into your weekly routine. So we say, swipe on that face mask, and draw yourself a bubble bath! Our Deep Detox Charcoal Mask is a perfect choice for cleansing the skin of unwanted toxins and pore-clogging dirt and residue. Charcoal, Kaolin Clay, and Bentonite add a gentle exfoliation effect that helps to remove excess oil, toxins, and dead skin cells for a softer feel and radiant glow.
#6 Start an Anti-Aging Regimen
There’s no time like the present to start thinking about the future, and your future skin could be awfully wrinkly if you don’t start caring for it today. The good news is, it’s never too late to start an anti-aging regimen. Whatever your age, now is the perfect time to start transitioning to products that help your skin fight the effects of aging. Our Anti-Aging Treatment Kit provides a one-two punch of support with our Advanced 2.5% Retinol Serum, which, through a combination of maximum strength Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid, promotes youth-retaining collagen and balanced hydration, and our 2.5% Retinol Night Cream, which contains both Vitamin E and soothing green tea to help keep skin hydrated, while reducing inflammation and dry patches, for an overall youthful glow.
