Having a good skin care routine is vital to healthy, glowing skin that will appear healthy and youthful no matter your age. It is possible to have beautiful skin if you follow a simple beauty routine every day.
1. Know Your Skin Type
Is your skin sensitive? Oily? Dry? Knowing your skin type is the first step to a great complexion. Think back to the last time you were shopping for skin care. It was a bit overwhelming, wasn’t it? To narrow down the choices stick to products that are designed specifically for your skin type. Using a product that is not compatible with your skin type can lead to skin problems, such as breakouts or irritation. Not sure what your skin type is? Consult a skin care expert and ask for recommendations.
2. Stick to the Basics
The key to any skincare routine is hydration. When choosing products for your daily beauty routine stick to the essentials, cleanser, moisturizer and sun protection. Eye repair cream and a specialized serum designed for your specific skin type are also useful additions to any skin care routine. We recommend our DNA Repair serum that is specifically developed to target sun damage.
3. Invest in a Cleanser
One of the keys to perfect skin is making sure to cleanse your skin every day. Every day our skin is exposed to free radicals, pollution and daily grime, which is why it is so important to cleanse and moisturize your skin every single night. Not sure what cleanser is right for you? Our oil control serum gently exfoliates and removes dead skin cells revealing fresh new skin underneath
Looking to take your skin care to the next level? Invest in a rotating brush like Clarisonic and use an AHA Cleanser. A couple of times a week, gently massage the cleanser onto the brush to wash your face and rinse. The results will amaze you!
4. Moisturize it’s Important
Did you know that in Colorado it only takes 3 minutes after you wash your face for it to lose all its moisture? When it comes to keeping your skin looking younger longer, you must moisturize! We recommend purchasing a moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid listed in the ingredients.
5. Sun Protection is a Must
Protecting your skin from the sun is the single most important thing you can do. Sun damage causes discoloration, wrinkles, fine lines and skin cancer. Due to Colorado’s higher elevation, the sun’s rays, even on a cloudy day, are more intense than on the beach in “sunny’’ Florida. Which is why it is important to wear sunscreen all day, rain or shine. Thankfully, there are many products on the market that include SPF protection. Just be sure to choose products with an SPF no lower than 30 with both a chemical and physical blocker listed in the ingredients.
Incorporating these tips into your daily skin care routine will help you maintain a healthy, youthful complexion.
