Healthy skin is as easy as 1, 2, 3. With school back in session and summer coming to a close, there’s no better time to revamp your beauty regimen than now. Today, we’re dropping knowledge to help you ace your skincare routine.
Welcome to Skincare 101: a crash course in the basics of achieving your best skin yet.
Lesson 1: Establishing A Daily Skincare Routine
Before we start, it’s important to understand that a consistent daily skincare routine is key for maintaining healthy skin. It doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming, but it should cover the basics. A typical daily skincare routine consists of cleansing, treating, and moisturizing.
Cleansing: Double Facial Wash
This one is for all of our overachievers! We all know that cleansing is the first and most important step in any skincare routine, but what about double cleansing? That’s right! Go above and beyond for your skin by using our two organic cleansers each morning and night.
Before and after a long day in the classroom, use our Facial Cleanser to gently break down and remove any makeup, oil, or build-up on the skin. Follow it up with our cloud-like Foaming Facial Wash, and voila – you're on your way to a 'Grade A' day! Made with a combination of organic ingredients, vitamins, and minerals, this duo works together to deeply + gently cleanse pores, leaving your skin recharged and refreshed.
Treating: Spot Treatment for Blemishes and Acne
Changes in the weather, plus the added stress of this time of year can lead to stubborn breakouts. Blemishes and acne can be frustrating, but our Spot Treat helps diminish their appearance while keeping the top layer of your skin healthy.
Apply the spot treatment directly on the affected areas after cleansing and before moisturizing.
Moisturizing: The Right Way to Hydrating Your Skin
Autumn often brings with it dry air which means dry skin and a need for heavier moisturizers. Many people with oily skin tend to skip moisturizing, fearing it will make their skin greasy. That’s why we created Matte – our most hydrating formula that deeply penetrates the skin without leaving behind a shine. Apply it after cleansing and treating for the best results.
Lesson 2: Skincare Mistakes to Avoid
While it's important to know what to do for great skin, it's equally important to know what not to do. Here are some common skincare mistakes to avoid:
- Skipping the Cleanse: Never skip the cleanser! Washing your face is the single most important rule in maintaining great skin. So, no matter how tired you are, always wash your face when you wake up and before you go to bed.
- Over-washing: While we do recommend double cleansing with our natural, honey-based products, over-washing with other non-organic cleansers can strip away your skin's natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation. Rule of thumb: natural is always best!
- Using Harsh Products: Avoid skincare products that contain harsh ingredients, as they can irritate and sensitize your skin. Instead, opt for gentle, non-toxic products, like our entire line.
