3 Essentials You're Forgetting in Your Skincare Routine
Posted by Truebotanicals on October 2nd, 2018
If you’re still following the same skincare routine that you started in your teenage years, it’s time to re-evaluate. Your skin needs (and the products available) have changed in the last decade or two. Streamline your products and reinvigorate your skin with these skincare essentials that can nourish and strengthen every skin type.
A high-performance toner is a primer for the rest of your skincare routine. If you struggle with acne, choose an antibacterial toner that balances oil production while leaving skin nourished and hydrated. Toner ingredients like kombucha balance and restore pH while healing and detoxifying the skin.
If your skin struggles with inflammation or sensitivity, a nutrient mist acts as a calming and soothing toner to hydrate, repair, and nourish. Natural skin care ingredients like blue chamomile flower extract are packed with anti-inflammatory properties and soothing phytochemicals.
Apply your toner after you cleanse and pat your face dry. Wait till it mostly dries before following with a moisturizer.
Daily: Face Oil
This beauty product is your new source of potent hydration that doesn't clog pores or sit on the surface. Face oil is especially crucial for those with acne-prone complexions. Choose a face oil for oily skin types to get the hydration your skin needs while balancing sebum production and clearing pores of bacteria, dirt, and toxins. Antibacterial ingredients and antioxidants work together to heal infection and revive vibrancy for overall healthier and more radiant skin.
For those who struggle with flaking and peeling, face oils deliver potent hydration deeper than traditional lotions or creams. This heals and strengthens skin cells before they reach the surface and prevent inflammation, dryness, and flaking. Apply face oil in the morning and at night, after your toner and before your skin serum.
Weekly: Face Mask
Minimize pores, exfoliate dead skin, and hydrate at every level with a lactic acid face mask once or twice a week. Dead skin cell buildup can cause a dull or dry looking complexion. Some trendy face masks currently use chemical peels or harsh ingredients that strip skin of essential nutrients and oils without moisturizing what’s underneath. A lactic acid-based face mask removes dead skin cells while delivering potent nutrients deeper.
If you have sensitive skin, patch test a face mask on a smaller area of your skin before applying it to your entire face. Apply after cleansing and drying your face, washing off after the recommended time and then continuing with your everyday skincare routine.
Note: Check the Ingredients List
