The Skin Care Routine For You

Oh skin. It covers 100% of our body, is our largest organ, and can account for up to 16% of our body weight. So in case you didn't know, it's kind of a big deal. And therefore you need to take care of it. I've already told you about how important sunscreen is, but just as important as sunscreen is the rest of your skin care routine.

So here's the deal. Every single person needs at least three steps in your skin care routine.

  1. cleanse
  2. moisturize
  3. protect
Simple, right? Step 1 is obvious. You acquire a lot of nasty during the day and night on your face, so you really need to clean that stuff off. Step 2 is to prevent you from looking like an old wrinkly thing. And step 3, well do I need to tell you how hot the sun gets again? 9,941 degrees Fahrenheit. Just use some sunscreen people. 

And you know what? A lot of times step 2 and 3 can be combined into one step. So, hey, bonus!

If your skin is perfect and you don't need to correct anything about it, then well I hate you. But for the rest of us, you might need to add an extra step in your routine. 

If you have...

      Use an SPF with a green tint. This will help neutralize the redness in your skin. 

Murad Correcting Moisturizer SPF 15, $37.00

Stubborn Blackheads
      And who doesn't right? Get yourself a product with Salicylic acid. 

SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense $78.00
Acne Scars
     Did you know that an Alph-beta peel will fade them even faster than retinol will? 

Crow's Feet
        You're always going to want to keep your eye area hydrated. Just think of them like that aunt of yours no one talks about because she's always asking for another drink. Try an eye cream that has peptides, which stimulate collagen and restore moisture. 

SkinCeuticals Eye Crea, $70.00

Dark Spots
     You need to get yourself a pigment regulator.

SkinCeuticals Pigment Regulator, $85.00

     Ah, the bane of our existence. Pimples are the worst. But if you stick with your skin care regimen you'll see results. Don't be impatient though. You skin can take weeks to recycle. But again, try a salicylic acne treatment.
