Your Perfect Morning Skin Care Routine
Between the rays of the summer sun, and the awful thought of layering on a sticky foundation to cover imperfections (no thanks!), it’s time to kick your skin into shape. We know the feeling of wanting to glow but not knowing how to get there, and that’s why we’ve created the perfect morning skin care routine for you to follow. Have the confidence to step outside WITHOUT makeup.
Rise and shine, beautiful! The earth says, ‘Hello!’
Step 1: Purify, and Refresh your morning!
What’s your type? Skin type, that is. Finding the perfect balancing cleanser for your skin type is what we’re here for. Cleansers that are too aggressive for your skin can leave you red, irritated, and wanting to use that sick day you have to stay home and hide in your room. We’ve got the daily cleanser that is perfect for starting your day off right: Purification.
What’s in the mix? Fortified with Vitamin-C, this daily facial cleanser works hard to remove makeup, excess oil, and other impurities, all while soothing and invigorating that gorgeous face of yours. And, since Purification is a perfect balance, it can thoroughly refresh your skin without drying it out.
How to use: Lather, baby, lather! Wet your face and work Purification into a lather, smoothing over your skin in gentle, circular motions. Rinse the cleanser off with lukewarm water, and pat dry.
And, once a week…
Exfoliate: We understand the temptation to scrub, scrub, and keep scrubbing the Monday after a long weekend, but less is more in the world of exfoliation. Don’t make your skin raw by over-exfoliating; take it slow and use a gentle scrub that soothes, not damages. Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells that build on your skin’s surface. When left behind, these dead skin cells can cause dullness, dimming your glow! That’s why we recommend starting your routine with Refresh, a refreshing scrub that lifts away dull skin for a vibrant, smooth complexion.
Take it or leave it (ok but really, take our advice): Use Refresh once a week to avoid over-exfoliation.
What’s in the mix? Boosted by ground bamboo, one of the fastest-growing plants in the world, Refresh is a facial scrub meant to energize your skin. We added Jojoba beads to help exfoliate and lift away your dull, dry skin. Rosemary, chamomile, and cucumber contribute to improving your skin’s tone and give it a luminous glow. We firmly believe in the power of plant nutrients to help your skin be noticeably smoother, stronger, and evener.
Step 2: Illuminate not only the soul but the face!
Add a serum to your daily mix to ramp up your skincare routine. Between all of the skin care products, you might not know what a serum even is. Serums are meant for use in between cleansing and moisturizing. Made of super concentrated molecules, serums are once-a-day products that are designed to target individual skin care concerns. Our product, Illuminate, is a lightweight serum meant to improve fine lines and wrinkles to make your skin appear more radiant.
What’s in the mix? Hyaluronic Acid is becoming a staple in tried-and-true skin care products. That’s why we chose it; Hyaluronic Acid works double-time to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin appear more radiant. Our formula glides on beautifully and absorbs instantly to leave you with a smooth, luxurious complexion.
How to use: Apply 2-3 drops to desired areas once or twice daily. Gently press it on your skin while massaging your face in an upwards motion to help remove toxins.
Step 3: Shield!
We get it; the thought of sunscreen is just that extra step from keeping away from the lovely sunny weather. But, since the rate of melanoma has tripled over the past 35 years, it’s long overdue to take control of your sunscreen responsibility. We know all too well about the excuses for not using sunscreen, and that’s why we created Shield to be your invisibility cloak against the sun. Now we’re not saying that using Shield will be your pathway to Hogwarts (although we’re still waiting for that letter….), it will help to prevent sun damage on your skin with important antioxidant vitamins. This moisturizing sun cream is rejuvenating and will hydrate your beautiful skin.
What’s in the mix? Harsh sunlight and your happy, healthy skin will be arch enemies until the end of time. Shield is a daily sunscreen meant to hydrate your skin by filtering the sun to protect against UVA and UVB rays. The active ingredients are avobenzone, octinoxate, octisalate, and oxybenzone, which work together to protect you from the sun’s ray. But we promise, Shield feels lightweight and is nothing like the thick sunscreen of your childhood memories.
How to use: This is the final step of your morning skincare routine. Apply Shield evenly on your face before sun exposure, and toss the jar in your purse to reapply as needed throughout your day.
All set for the morning, now learn how to treat your skin right with our recommended P.M. Routine!
