If you’re feeling intimidated by the growing number of skincare routines and tips, you’re not alone. It seems like every day there is a new hack, product, or treatment that will finally address your biggest concerns. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Your skincare practices don’t always have to be long and complicated. Keep reading for our 4 best skincare practices to keep your skin healthy and happy.

First, cleanse!

Cleansing is a vital step in your routine and can improve the overall health of your skin. Throughout the day, your skin can collect dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris like bacteria and pollutants. Cleansing ensures the removal of such substances and allows for a clean slate to apply the rest of your products. At the end of the night, simply using wipes to remove makeup will not provide your skin with the full cleanse it will need. Try adding our Papaya Cleanser to your night to leave your skin clean, refreshed, and glowing.

Time to Moisturize.

Moisturizing is yet another important practice that you should perform daily. Moisturizing the face can help protect the face from dirt and pollutants, prevents the skin from drying out, slows the aging process, and more. Additionally, applying a moisturizer daily will balance the skin’s natural oil production. This process is important because your skin produces oil as a natural way to protect the outer barrier. For an all-around, great moisturizer with maximum benefits, we would suggest our AM Daily Moisturizer with SPF 45+. AM Daily Moisturizer SPF 45+ is an oil-free, extremely moisturizing sunscreen and anti-aging complex formulated with hyaluronic and lactic acids and vitamins E and B5. It provides broad-spectrum protection while making skin appear younger and smoother.

Removing makeup before bed.

We get it- sometimes you’re too tired, or have had too long of a night out, to remove your makeup before you hop into bed. But this can cause significant damage to your skin. Your skin renews itself and heals throughout the night. Leaving makeup on will inhibit this essential process. This can also lead to significant breakouts and uneven tone and texture. If you are struggling with taking your makeup before bed, we would suggest leaving makeup remover and cleanser in an easy-to-access area in your home. We would recommend using our Papaya Cleanser to not only remove makeup, dirt, and grime but to tone and perfect the skin.

Lastly, drink water!

Drinking the appropriate amount of water has numerous health benefits. But did you know that drinking water can help improve skin health and appearance? Water reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, staying hydrated will improve your skin’s elasticity. This will help to prevent breakouts, as water helps to balance the amount of oil your skin produces, leading to fewer clogged pores.

As you can see, there are a number of practices you can incorporate into your daily life that will help improve the overall health of your skin. If you start practicing these four easy steps, you’ll be well on your way to bright, glowing skin.
