Is your current skincare routine giving you the results you desire? If not, your routine may require a reboot. Applying products at the wrong times and in the wrong order (plus, using harsh, toxic products) can work against your goals and even decrease the effectiveness of your skincare. As your go-to source for beauty and wellness, we think it’s important that you optimize your skincare routine to get the most from the products you use.
Consider adopting our preferred morning and nighttime skincare routines to achieve healthy, gorgeous skin.
To start your day off right, you need to take care of your skin the night before. As you sleep, your skin rests and restores itself. Truly get your “beauty rest” by following this regimen before bed.
1. REMOVE FACE AND EYE MAKEUP.
Never go to sleep with makeup on. Wash thoroughly by following our double-cleaning method. First, use a gentle oil-based remover like Purify + Condition Makeup Remover that softens and lifts surface impurities and gently removes eye makeup.
The second step of the double-cleansing method involves following makeup removal with a deep water activated cleanser like Soothe + Soften Cleansing Emulsion that effectively cleanses and purifies your skin of any lingering or embedded traces of makeup and environmental debris without stripping the skin.
Apply Balance + Calm Toning Lotion to remove any lingering oil and debris and improve the pH balance of your skin.
Choose specialized serums and treatments that address your skin’s specific needs, like Firm + Smooth + Brighten Reparative Complex that repairs at the cellular level and boosts collagen production for younger-looking skin. Nighttime is also the perfect opportunity to enhance and lift the eye area with Depuff + Illuminate Eye Firming Complex, so you look vibrant and rejuvenated in the morning.
Promote skin repair and lock in moisture before heading to sleep with Nourish + Protect Antioxidant Moisturizer.
Change your pillow cases often as dirt trapped in fabrics can cause irritation and breakouts.
Washing your face at night doesn’t make you exempt from your morning routine. We suggest the following steps for radiant and healthy-looking skin throughout the day.
Soft, beautiful skin starts from within, so be sure to drink water, first thing in the morning (and throughout the day). We suggest at least eight, 8-ounce glasses a day or half your body weight converted into ounces.
Deep-cleanse using all-natural Soothe + Soften Cleansing Emulsion. This product leaves behind a fresh, clean slate that enables other skincare products to adequately penetrate the skin.
3. RESTORE AND TREAT.
Once again, apply toner and serums to address any unique skin problems. Smooth, lift and brighten the eye area with Depuff + Illuminate Eye Firming Complex.
As a final step before applying makeup or going about your day, use an all-natural moisturizer. Planted in Beauty’s Nourish + Protect Antioxidant Moisturizer does double-duty by hydrating and protecting from environmental damage.
After applying treatments and moisturizer, be sure to include defense against ultraviolet damage by using a safe, non-toxic sunscreen. Apply sunscreen daily no matter if you are going bare-faced or wearing makeup, whether it’s sunny or cloudy.
6. OPTIONAL STEP:
Exfoliate as needed with Polish + Resurface Detox Exfoliant to slough away dead skin cells and clarify for a smoother, softer touch. Exfoliate in the morning or at night before applying toner.
Your skin reacts to what you eat. Processed, sugary foods are inflammatory and known to cause gut issues, and inflammation is a key contributor to the deterioration of skin cells and skin health. Pure, whole, fresh vegetables and fruits infuse skin with nutrient-rich essentials it needs to glow from the inside out and fight free radicals which causes inflammation, collagen break down, and premature aging.
Choose from a variety of these antioxidant food sources that are rich in: immune-boosting Vitamin C (citrus fruits and kale), soothing Vitamin E (avocados and almonds), smoothing Vitamin A (carrots and sweet potatoes), and energizing B-Vitamins (whole grains and vegetables).
