We all have unique skin due to genetics, different needs, and backgrounds. Various types of skin and other conditions typically mean that each skincare routine looks different. We always recommend that you have a customized routine for healthy-looking skin. A good start is to review the products you use every day, including your cleanser, day cream, and night cream. Ask yourself what your skin is missing: Could it be that you need more hydration? Or is your routine missing daily sun protection? Start here. Both hydration and sun protection are vital parts of all skincare routines.
Once the vital needs are covered and your skin is protected from environmental stressors, you can extend your routine. Consider whether you would like to add more concentrated formulas, including functional ingredients like Vitamin A (Retinol) or exfoliating acids. With these smart ingredients, you can elevate your skincare routine and get one step closer to your desired result.
If you already have your skincare favorites, keep using them and see how you can combine them with the products you are longing to try. Don’t forget that the skin needs time to adjust when introduced to new products, so be mindful when you’re looking to switch up your routine. If you want to start a completely new routine, begin by adding a few new products at the time.
We have created kits and routines to target some of the most common conditions we know several customers are looking for. Each routine includes four products; three for your daily routine and an extra to add to boost the result.
Most skins need time to adapt to a new skincare routine. We always recommend that you introduce a new routine by adding a few new products at the time. Start, for example, with a new cleanser and a cream. Once the skin has adjusted, you can continue to introduce other products, like a serum. Smart and highly concentrated ingredients like Retinol 8 can be introduced a few times a week: like every other or third day.
Before you see any results, your skin may need to get used to the new products. During this period, you might experience the appearance of temporary dryness or redness/discomfort and increased breakouts. Visible results can occur after different lengths of time depending on the skin, its tolerance, and expectations.
Always finish your daily skincare routine with sun protection.
Don't forget that your skin needs time for visible changes, and always consult with your skin expert when required.
