This year is all about having beautiful natural complexion, making skin care the top beauty trend for 2018. After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s time for a refreshing start. We always want to look our best but our day-to-day errands can be a challenge to give attention to our skin. A simple routine is all you need to achieve a dewy and radiant complexion!
What every skin care guru would say: cleanse, cleanse, cleanse. It may be the most basic but it is also the most important part of your skin care routine. Upon waking up and before going to bed, wash your face with the right facial wash for your skin type. Then deep cleanse with the help of a facial toner.
Skin a little dull? Dead skin cells may be the culprit. Slough it off with a gentle face scrub like Burt’s Bees Peach and Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub with Willow Bark extract to deep clean pores and gently exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and finely ground Peach Stone to polish skin for a smooth, glowing complexion. Excessive exfoliation rubs the skin raw so do it twice a week to avoid irritation.
Moisturizing is a must to achieve a healthy, dewy glow. Aside from hydrating the skin, moisturizing also helps the skin by nourishing it with vitamins and lipids for protection from harsh elements. Invest in a great moisturizer. We suggest Guerlain Abielle Royale Black Bee Honey Balm. Highly concentrated with Black Bee Honey, this intensely nourishing balm optimizes skin repair, leaving your skin supple and diminishes imperfections and wrinkles.
Before you have your beauty sleep massage Murad Retinol Youth Night Cream for potent skin nourishment while you snooze. Also, don’t forget to drink lots of water, around six to eight glasses a day. Your skin will thank you for it.
Avoid the sun
Too much sun exposure can damage skin. When going out wear a hat, use an umbrella and put on sunscreen. Your best bet would be to wear sunscreen everyday with at least an SPF15. But for prolonged exposure on the hottest part of the day, a higher SPF is a must. The Laura Mercier Daily Face Shield SPF40 UVB/UVA has a transparent, lightweight formula that is easily absorbed by the skin creating an invisible shield against the sun’s harsh rays.
You heard us right, let your skin go bare — even if only for the weekend. Glowing skin doesn’t need makeup. It also helps the skin breathe by absorbing more oxygen as the pores are not clogged by heavy makeup. However, if you can’t go makeup free then opt for a concealer, lip balm and a swipe of mascara. Perricone MD No Concealer Concealer is a multi-tasking eye concealer, eye primer, highlighter and blemish coverage in one. It is formulated with Vitamin C ester for a crease-proof and hydrating correction of skin undertones and dark circles.
Refresh your skin by keeping your regimen to a minimum: cleanse and tone, exfoliate, moisturize and spot treat, if needed. Oh, and don’t forget your sunscreen. Ultimately, caring for your skin is important no matter how busy you are. Take a few minutes each morning and follow these tips to achieve a healthy glow this 2018!
