1. Switch To Clean Beauty Products
Biossance was founded on the premise that sustainable, science-backed ingredients are the key to building a more planet-friendly beauty industry. We got our start when our UC Berkeley scientists created sugarcane-derived squalane to replace squalene, a natural moisturizer found in human skin that was originally sourced from shark livers and used throughout the beauty industry. By sharing our superhero hydrator with our competitors, we save 2 million sharks annually, helping protect key marine ecosystems.
In addition, all Biossance formulations are developed in a facility certified by My Green Lab—the gold standard for laboratory sustainability practices for responsible usage of energy, waste, and water. Drawing on our rich history of science and sustainability, we create skincare that is incredibly effective and safe without harming the environment or animals. Because the products you use make a difference for your health and the health of the planet.
2. Upgrade Your Nighttime Routine
While you’re asleep, your skin is hard at work repairing the damage of the day and renewing itself. A science-backed, high-performance nighttime skincare routine supports your body’s natural repair and can target skin concerns such as dark spots and signs of aging.
We teamed up with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Katie Beleznay to create
3. Reduce Waste
We believe that clean beauty extends beyond eco-friendly formulas to encompass every piece of the production process, including reducing consumer waste. The cosmetics industry produces over
The sugarcane used to produce our beloved squalane is irrigated with natural rainwater processed within a closed system that reflects responsible land and energy use. Our products are packaged in tubes and bottles that are completely recyclable and outer cartons made from renewable sugarcane paper, without inks or dyes that could affect recyclability. We encourage you to upcycle your empty skincare containers when you're finished using the products inside.
4. Stop Sleeping With Your Makeup On
Having a cabinet full of clean beauty products with sustainable packaging is great, but they won’t help your skin if you don’t use them. Keeping your skin clean is step one towards a healthy, balanced, radiant complexion. We get it: you’re exhausted. But sleeping with your makeup on is a surefire way to look (and perhaps feel) even more tired than you actually are.

7. Drink More Water
While serums and moisturizers can do a wonderful job of keeping your skin plump and supple, drinking enough water can help enhance the appearance of smoother, healthier skin by improving circulation. You may have heard that you need to drink 8 glasses per day to stay adequately hydrated, water glasses aren’t exactly a scientific unit of measurement. The US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is about 3.7 liters for men and 2.7 liters per women. And remember: you’ll also need to offset every cup of coffee or alcoholic beverage you consume with an equal amount of water to stay hydrated.
8. Get More Sleep
It terms out that getting your beauty sleep is more than just a cliché. According to
9. Move Your Body Every Day
Regular exercise boosts circulation to your skin, bringing much-needed oxygen and nourishment to skin cells and carrying away waste, such as free radicals. Exercising can also help with stress, helping you to avoid the negative effects of stress on your skin, which include increased reactivity (hello, acne) and slower healing time. How much exercise do you need to see your skin benefit? Aim to move your body for 30 minutes 3-5 times a week in a way that you enjoy, whether that’s yoga, lifting weights, or simply taking a walk with a friend.
10. Rely On Clinically-Proven Ingredients
TikTok may be a great source for new products and trends, but your dermatologist should be your go-to for ingredient information. Dermatologists consistently recommend vitamin c and retinoids as go-tos for healthy, younger-looking skin.
