Our Simple 5-Step Skincare Routine, Explained
Skincare doesn't have to be complicated.
Your Skincare Should Work for You
Like all good habits, we have two beliefs about your skincare routine. First, a little effort goes a long way in making your skin look and feel its healthiest. Second, your routine needs to fit easily into your life so you can maintain it. That's why our entire collection is based on a simple 10-15 minute routine. Your skin is worth it.
Step 01: Cleanser
The first step in your routine is to wash your face. Remove oil, dirt, dead skin, makeup and environmental pollutants with an effective, kind-to-skin facial cleanser like Refresh Gentle Enzyme Cleanser. Buildup on the skin can clog pores and lead to premature visible aging. No thank you! So you first need to wash skin. But your cleanser can do more than just clean. Refresh aids in gentle exfoliation to help unclog pores and make them appear smaller, while leaving skin feeling bright, hydrated, and dewy.
STEP 01 RECOMMENDATION
Refresh Gentle Enzyme Cleanser
Wet hands, face, and neck. Put 1-2 pumps into hands and rub together. Gently massage over face and neck. Rinse thoroughly. Use daily, nightly, or both. 🕑 1-2 Minutes.
Step 02: Serum
Our hydration-boosting Hyaluronic Acid serums can sink down deep into skin to help address visible issues like fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, blemishes, uneven skin, dullness, and dryness. Raise your hand if you want to tackle any of these issues! Have more than one concern? You can rotate serums! Here's an overview:
✔️ Protect shields skin from daily pollution
✔️ Renew brightens + clears away dullness
✔️ Illuminate reduces the look of dark spots + lines
If you want to rotate, we recommend using Protect in the morning, Renew at night, and swapping in Illuminate any time skin needs an extra dose of brightness.
STEP 02 RECOMMENDATION
Illuminate BC+ Brightening Serum
Illuminate is our 5-in-1 super serum designed to address the look of wrinkles, dark spots, uneven tone, dryness, and dullness. It's ultra-potent, but gentle enough for nearly every skin type. Apply onto clean, slightly damp face, neck, and décolletage. Allow serum to absorb. 🕑 2-3 Minutes.
Step 03: Eye Cream
The area around your eyes is delicate, thin-skinned, and one of the first places to show visible signs of aging. So yes, you need to take extra care of this area! Luckily, our powerfully-potent eye creams have you covered day and night. If you need a place to start, we recommend Revive Firming Eye Cream. This NEWLY reformulated cream is infused with potent botanical ingredients designed to visibly firm and smooth the eye area for a moisturized, youthful, and radiant look.
Step 04: Face Cream
Daily moisturizing keeps skin from drying out and can therefore help fortify skin against visible premature aging. Let's say that another way: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! For the daytime, you'll likely want a lightweight cream that can easily layer and won't clog pores. And like your cleanser, your face cream can do more than just moisturize. Nourish Active Barrier Cream is designed to reinforce your skin barrier so it looks stronger, healthier, and more youthful. Need we say more?
Step 05: Face Oil
Voilá! You have reached the end! Face oils are an essential final step in your routine because they can seal in the serum below and potentially help those ingredients work better, longer. They are also powerfully intense moisturizers that work on the outer skin to not just shield it from potential visible damage, but also work to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Like serums, you can select a face oil base on your specific skin goals:
✔️ Prevent shields skin from daily aggressors
✔️ Rejuvenate reduces the look of lines and wrinkles
✔️ Detox helps diminish the look of blemishes
If you don't know where to start, we recommend Prevent Anti-Aging Face Oil. It's a hardworking crowd-pleaser that delivers instant glow. Have more than one concern? Pick up our Thriving Oil Set and rotate oils. Use Prevent in the morning, Rejuvenate at night, and Detox when you need to balance your skin.
