At the last chime of the bells signaling the new year, an audible sigh of relief was felt worldwide. 2020 is finally over, but we all know many challenges still lie ahead. Stress is always on the menu, and it can do a number to your skin. So, while you’re making those lists for 2021, make better skin your resolution this year and every year after.
Revamping Your Routine
Makeup can do wonders, and the filters that exist today can take your look to another level. However, if you want to get your natural skin look back on track, you need to make sure your skincare routine has these simple basics:
- Cleanse: Clean your skin in the morning and before bed. The colder weather can dry out your skin, so during these months, make sure you are using a cleanser the restores moisture while removing oil, buildup, and other impurities. Replenix® Purifying Antioxidant Foaming Cleanser deep cleans and replenishes the skin. This cleanser gently cleans all skin types and nourishes, restores, resulting in healthier, more radiant looking skin.
- Vitamin C: Serum can be applied after both morning and night cleaning to neutralize free radicals and reduce photoaging while it brightens the skin. We recommend and stock SENTÉ Bio Complete Serum and Revision Vitamin C lotion 15% and 30%.
- Sunscreen: Protect your skin anytime you will be outside by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Colorescience, Revision, and Elta MD offer many clear, tinted, daily, and sports-specific options. Both are stocked at our office.
- Help it from the inside: Drinking plenty of water will keep your body and skin hydrated; eating healthy also keeps skin healthy but can reduce flare-ups of skin conditions like psoriasis and lupus.
