Level up your skincare with a fresh routine for 2021
🎉 The New Year is here! 🎉
As you consider resolutions for 2021… Why not give your face some much-needed attention?
2020 was quite a year. Frankly, we all could use a little TLC. Starting with your skin is a great way to indulge in self-care and “face” the world with a little more confidence.
One of the best ways to care for your face in 2021? Start a skincare routine you’ll actually stick to.
Believe us – your skin will thank you, and people will wonder where your new glow came from. 😎
Here are all the steps you need to start a simple yet effective skincare routine that will get you feeling all the good skin vibes.
No matter your skin type or age, every good skincare routine must start with a clean face. This essential step washes away dirt, oil, and makeup and preps your skin for the rest of your routine.
A gentle cleanser is your best friend. Opt for a product that does the job without stripping to help keep your skin barrier intact and your complexion balanced. A sulfate-free formula, for example, is extra-gentle on the skin.
For a deeper clean, a Mini Silicone Facial Scrubber is a great addition to your routine. It removes dead skin cells, blackheads, and oil while massaging the skin and improving circulation, which gives you that lit-from-within glow. Best of all, you can use it with your favorite cleanser.
After cleansing, it’s time to tone/treat.
Think of this step as a chance to add some helpful ingredients to your routine that target any problem areas like acne, wrinkles, discoloration, or texture.
We recommend incorporating serums at this point (after cleansing but before moisturizer) for a few reasons:
- They’re packed with powerhouse ingredients
- They target and treat all kinds of skin concerns, depending on what you need
- They’re easy to apply in the A.M. or P.M.
- They sink into skin best right after cleansing
In the morning, try incorporating a serum packed with vitamin C. This ingredient helps protect your skin from environmental stressors while restoring brightness.
In the evening, try adding a serum that addresses your specific skin concerns. For example, if you’re looking to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, look for a formula that includes peptides, which firm up skin, or AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids), which smooth out texture and fine lines.
To take your skin from glowing to fabulously glowing, try using the Silicone Jade Vibration Brush with your serum of choice. 🌟 The back side features a jade stone perfect for massaging in your most impactful skin products. (The front side features a vibrating brush with adjustable speeds and a heating feature to gently deep clean your skin.)
Time to lock in moisture plus those amazing ingredients you took the time to apply in step #2.
No matter your skin type, no matter your age, no matter the time of year, always use a moisturizer, every day. Why?
Moisturizers serve as a protective barrier between your skin and water loss, environmental stressors, and more. On top of that, as we age, our skin’s ability to retain moisture diminishes.
That means moisturizer is essential for everyone. (Yes, we’re talking to you out there with oily skin, and you over there dealing with those first few wrinkles.)
Remember: Hydrated skin is healthy skin. Luckily, there’s a moisturizer out there for everyone, no matter your skin type or concerns.
Confused about your choices? Look for one without frills that’s non-comedogenic (that means it won’t clog your pores).
For Daytime: Finish with SPF
Harmful UV rays can do a lot of damage to your skin. That’s why we can’t skip mentioning sunscreen – it’s your first defense against premature lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
In the daytime, before you head out the door, make sure you add a good SPF on top of your moisturizer. Look for one rated at 30 or above for the best protection. 🛡
For Nighttime: Deeply Exfoliate
At night, especially if you’re fighting tired or dull-looking skin, some deep exfoliation could be just what you need to refresh your complexion. The Ultrasonic Facial Spatula Exfoliator is a powerhouse tool that will renew your skin and get rid of blackheads, oil, and dead skin cells with the power of high-frequency vibration and heat. 💪
