You’ve been scouring the internet for some skincare recommendations. Again and again, you find that these tips and tricks don’t actually do a thing. Are you wondering where to begin for the best skincare results? Not to worry.
We’ve researched the top twelve best skincare tips that actually work.
Keep reading to see what we discovered.
What Are The Basics?
- Cleansing: Wash your face and neck.
- Toning: Balance your skin tone.
- Moisturizing: Hydrate and soften your skin.
And if you opt for the more in-depth routine:
- Eye Cream
- Spot Treatment(s)
- Face oil(s)
Everyone’s regimen for skincare is different because everyone’s skin is different! You might have dry, oily, combination, or normal skin. Consult your dermatologist to see what the best routine might be for your personal needs. Experts contend that applying the lightest product first to the heaviest is the best application process.*
So, what skincare tips actually work?
Invest in a Quality Moisturizer
Your moisturizer and cleanser should be the core of your routine. We recommend our Face and Body Cream. Combined with ultra-hydrating Organic Aloe Vera and 10+ other botanical ingredients like shea butter, this moisturizer can soothe and rejuvenate without the use of artificial colorings, preservatives, or fragrances.
Double cleansing means thoroughly washing your face with two different kinds of cleansers. Most will begin with an oil-based cleanser that can remove impurities like makeup and finish with a water-based one that can penetrate the skin to remove things like sweat. Experts suggest being extra gentle when double cleansing by slowly massaging the products on your skin one at a time before washing them off with lukewarm water.*
Keep the products you use for your daily skincare regimen to a minimum, and keep the ingredient list small, too. It’s best for your skin to stick with the basics! Research suggests that using too many products could potentially cause skin problems down the road. Skincare professionals recommend three to four “holy grail” products that you can stick to.*
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
Research suggests that 2.7 to 3.7 liters, or half a gallon, of water per day, is the best daily fluid intake, and for skin that glows, this is integral.* Drinking electrolytes, healthy liquids, and water is one of the most important steps in any skincare regimen if you want your skin to radiate from the inside out.
You don’t just need sun protection when it’s sunny. Skincare experts recommend wearing sunscreen rain or shine, every single day. Daily UV exposure can lead to premature aging, whether you’re running errands or driving to work in your car. A UVA and UVB broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher that can be reapplied throughout the day is advised, and if you can find makeup or skin products that implement SPF in their ingredients, go for it.*
Drink Your Greens
Replace your coffee with a green smoothie. Green juices, made with lots and lots of veggies, can be an internal superfood for your skin by oxygenating, hydrating, brightening, and de-puffing the face. Foods like avocados contain phytonutrients that supply your skin with a healthy glow. Experts suggest a shot of chlorophyll in the morning or a veggie beverage.*
Eat Your Water
Hydration doesn’t only happen by drinking that glass of water. Foods like celery, watermelons, and cucumbers are jam-packed with hydrating nutrients your body needs. Adding hydrating foods to your diet can help rejuvenate your skin.*
Gently exfoliate your skin once or twice a week, or sparingly depending on your skin type. Using a scrub combined with a BHA liquid exfoliant or a product with a chemical component like lactic acid can potentially keep your pores small, fine lines minimized, and get rid of excess dead skin cells.*
Don’t Touch Your Face
Your hands and face produce their own natural oils, and especially if you are prone to oily skin, you should practice avoiding touching your face. Touching your face with your hands can spread those oils around your skin and potentially clog your pores, causing breakouts.*
Steer Clear of Heat Exposure
It’s not all about the sun! Hot surfaces or objects like bonfires or heaters can potentially cause inflammation and slowly lead to the collagen in your skin breaking down. Experts suggest standing at least ten feet away from things that produce a lot of heat to protect your skin.*
Don’t Just Eat Your Vitamins
You can put your vitamins on your skin! The epidermis, which is the outermost layer of your skin, uses a total of 23 vitamins. Vitamin-rich topical antioxidants like vitamin C or vitamin A serum can repair skin from sun damage, protect your natural skin barrier, and give your skin the nutrition it needs.*
It’s not only relaxing, it can stimulate lymphatic drainage, too. You can massage your face with a Gua Sha, a jade roller, or clean hands/fingers. Experts suggest massaging in circular motions starting at the base of your neck and working your way up.* You can even practice massaging your face when applying moisturizer or other face oils and/or serums, leaving you looking awake and fresh-faced.
