There’s no such thing as one product that’s going to revolutionize your skincare routine. Instead, it's the commitment to a consistent, simplified routine and some intentional lifestyle choices that will propel you towards radiant and glowing skin. In this guide, we’ll breakdown some simple steps you can take towards healthier, hydrated skin during the year ahead!
1. Integrate a gentle cleanser
If you aren’t cleansing your skin on a daily basis, this is a great place to start seeing an improvement in your skin! Using a gentle cleanser can not only help you maintain your skin's natural pH level, but it will help keep skin feeling hydrated as well. A ‘good’ cleanser will only strip the skin of dirt and oil, leaving the healthy bacteria that helps our skin thrive.
We recommend our Sleepy Time cleanser — a gentle foaming face wash made with organic lavender that proves to be a great option for sensitive skin. Or, if you’re sensitive to scent, Washed Up is our unscented option that is made using the same recipe (minus the lavender).
2. Don’t forget to hydrate
Grab your Stanleys, because water is IN this year! If your skin is feeling dry or dull, it might be because it’s dehydrated — and moisturizer isn’t the only solution for refreshing your skin with moisture!
Drinking more water can help improve your skin texture, reduce puffiness and eliminate toxins, which in return, can help reduce acne and scarring. Looking for an extra hydration boost? We recommend coconut water! This drink option is naturally rich with vitamins and is a great source for maintaining supple, radiant skin.
3. Take time to pamper your skin
Your skin deserves the care and attention you give it, so take this as your sign to make more time for skincare in 2024. This can be as simple as advocating for dedicated time during your day-to-day to prioritize your skincare routine. Or, taking the extra time to choose products that are kind to your skin. For example, reading the ingredient bottles and make sure you understand what you’re using on your skin or being intentional with natural skincare alternatives.
And last but not least, take the time to slow down and make some time for self care. Picture yourself cozying up with a good book while treating your skin to a luxurious cleansing face mask. This simple act not only rejuvenates your skin but also provides a little escape for the soul.
4. Don’t forget about the SPF!
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, sunscreen is season-less! Don’t be afraid of applying a thin layer of SPF, even on the cloudy or snowy days. Your skin will thank you for it! Our Smarten Up SPF is great for broad spectrum protection and it adds a little extra hydration to add to your daily skincare routine. Plus, it diffuses on skin without a trace, so you don’t have to worry about dealing with a greasy layer while applying your makeup!
