3 Steps to Uncomplicate Your Skincare Routine

Billie Breeden

Your skincare routine does not have to be complicated to work. In doing some research I found some skincare routines with 10 steps every night! With our busy schedules, who has time for that? 

There are many nights, after a hard day, when you just want to fall into bed and forget washing your face. Please don't do that, but ditch the complicated routine and go for something simple. It is much more important to wash your face at night than in the morning. 

1. Choose a good all-around cleanser. A gentle, water soluble cleanser that washes away substances that can lead to clogged pores and dull skin. When you start with a clean face in the morning it allows the skincare products you use afterwards to work even better. Our Clarifying Face Wash is a perfect cleanser loaded with gentle jojoba beads and alpha acids leaving your skin clean and smooth.

2. Use a face serum or moisturizer. Serums help soften the visible signs of aging for healthier, younger-looking skin. Serums filled with antioxidants and other anti-aging ingredients help defend your skin from environmental assault, including the visible effects of pollution. Our Graceful Face Serum contains geranium oil and lavender oil; both powerful antioxidants, and rose-hip oil which is one of natures most powerful anti-aging oils. Apply your face serum at night so it has time to do its job. I use both face serum and moisturizer. I use the face serum at night, and Age Perfect moisturizer in the morning. It is enriched with Vitamin C esters, which are powerful antioxidants, to help support, balance, brighten, and revive dull, dry listless skin. Used daily, moisturizers improve skin’s appearance, helping to keep it feeling smooth, plumped, and soft.

3. Exfoliate at least one to two times weekly. Exfoliants gently remove built-up dead skin for smoother, noticeably renewed skin. Environmental damage and other factors cause the surface of skin to become dull, rough, and uneven. Exfoliating eliminates this buildup, which otherwise would cause clogged pores and uneven skin tone, and worsen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our Organic Tumeric and Neem Scrub is not too oily, not too dry. It contains neem oil which is said to prevent and treat scars from acne. It also contains a high level of antioxidants. Since neem oil is high in fatty acids and Vitamin E, it can quickly penetrate the outer layers of skin. It is extremely effective in healing dry and damaged skin.

Life is stressful enough. Why add more stress by complicating your skincare routine? A simple skincare routine is easier to follow, which leads to more success. If you only have a few products to use, your routine will be much shorter, making it easier to fit in to your busy schedule. 

Stick to one cleanser, one serum, one moisturizer. And don't forget to exfoliate at least one to two times a week. Your skin will thank you for it!
