Whether you’re aiming for a promotion this year or renewing your commitment to exercise, the new year offers a fresh opportunity to create and meet your personal goals. Add healthy, radiant, clear skin to that list with these five easy-to-accomplish skincare goals.
1. Start a Body Skincare Routine
Your face represents a tiny portion of your body’s largest organ. It’s important to care for your skin from head to toe to achieve and maintain optimal skin health. The skinification of body care means developing a simple routine to help your body shed dead skin cells, hydrate skin all over, and strengthen the skin’s protective moisture barrier.
Start by incorporating dual exfoliation into your shower routine with our Enzyme Sugar Body Scrub. Our award-winning body exfoliant is made with sustainably-sourced, biodegradable sugar and powerfully gentle pomegranate enzyme to provide customizable exfoliation alongside squalane-powered hydration.
After toweling off, apply a thin layer of our decadently rich Caffeine Toning Body Cream using deep, circular massaging mostions. Our decadent cream uses caffeine sourced from green coffee beans to give the skin a smoother appearance while niacinamide improves skin texture and barrier function.
Lock in moisture and drive active ingredients 40x deeper with our 100% Squalane Oil.
2. Strengthen Your Skin Barrier
Your skin’s moisture barrier is essential to its function as your body’s first line of defense against environmental stressors. Following a restorative skincare routine packed with clinically-proven hydrators and moisturizers is therefore essential to preventing irritation, breakouts, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Our new Ectoin Overnight Rescue pairs calming, barrier-boosting magnesium with the water-binding, protective qualities of ectoin in a rich, velvety night cream that acts as a veil for vulnerable or damaged skin. This breakthrough formula helps to strengthen and rebuild skin’s appearance, soothing irritation and plumping fine lines and wrinkles while enhancing its daily defense mechanism by strengthening the barrier.
3. Diversify Your Microbiome
Your skin microbiome is made up of trillions of microscopic bacteria, fungi, mites, yeasts, protazoa, and viruses that work as part of your body’s immune system, helping to keep pathogens in check. A healthy skin microbiome is crucial to the proper function of your moisture barrier, and also helps signal the skin to produce beneficial lipids, clear pores, and aid in exfoliation.
Using skincare that contains body-friendly bacteria can help promote diversity in your microbiota, nurturing a healthy skin microbiome. Historically, it’s been hard for skincare companies to incorporate live strains of beneficial bacteria into their products. That’s why our newly reformulated Probiotic Gel Moisturizer is such a game-changer.
Our scientists used sustainable, cutting-edge technology to encapsulate live probiotics within a shelf-stable formula. These tiny capsules burst when our formula hits your skin, flooding it with beneficial bacteria to help your skin microbiome recover and thrive.
4. Remove Your Makeup and SPF Every Night
Makeup mixes with the impurities and oil that builds up throughout the day on the surface of your skin. Failing to remove it during your nighttime skincare routine can clog pores, interfere with your body’s overnight repair and exfoliation processes, and irritate your skin. The result: dull, dry, reactive skin.
Our light and silky Antioxidant Cleansing Oil effortlessly dissolves impurities and makeup while adding a burst of squalane-fueled hydration. Meanwhile, nourishing antioxidants target stress and signs of aging, leaving the skin healthy, radiant, and nourished.
Apply it to dry skin, then rinse with water and watch as it transforms into a luxurious milky cleanser to remove every trace of makeup – even waterproof mascara.
5. Stay Hydrated
Many people make the mistake of thinking dry skin is the same as dehydrated skin. But the two are very different skin conditions. While dry skin refers to a skin type that lacks oil, dehydrated skin is a temporary condition during which the skin lacks water. This can happen to any skin type, and can even cause skin to become oily.
The best products for dehydrated skin include ingredients such as ectoin and hyaluronic acid that replenish the skin’s water content while also working to support the skin’s moisture barrier to slow down TEWL.
With water-binding ingredients including ectoin and hyaluronic acid, our Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum is dehydrated skin’s best friend. Hyaluronic acid pulls water from the environment into the skin while ectoin soothes and hydrates, plumping skin and providing lasting hydration while paracress extract tightens and copper peptides boost elasticity.
