People are always interested in the latest and greatest solutions to improve their skin. However, what most people overlook is that the most effective way to have all-around great skin is to care for it on a daily basis. Not only will a dedicated skin care regimen protect you from a significant amount of damage, but consistently taking care of your skin will have a much bigger impact than trying to change your skin in a matter of days with a “miracle” product or procedure.
Although it’s easy to see why a daily routine is a very effective way to take care of your skin, you may be concerned that it’s going to be too difficult to maintain this type of regimen. Fortunately, it’s actually not that difficult. And like any habit, once you get into the swing of doing it for a week or so, you will automatically do it every day without any extra thought or effort. If you’re ready to start reaping all of the benefits of daily skincare, there are just 5 steps that you need to remember:
Cleansing and Exfoliation
Step one is cleansing your skin. While it’s important to wash your hands throughout the day, the same isn’t true for your face. Instead, it’s best to cleanse once a day. This will prevent your skin from drying out. Many women get the best results from cleansing their skin every night, and then simply rinsing it with water in the morning. If you cleanse in the evening, you can follow up by exfoliating every two to three nights. Consistent exfoliation will keep your face free of dead skin and give you a beautifully radiant glow.
Wrinkle Reduction and Moisturizing
A quality wrinkle cream should be the next item in your skincare arsenal. Since there are so many different options, it can be difficult to figure out which one is right for you. Because it’s able to penetrate through skin and stimulate collagen production, an advanced skin cream is your best bet. Using a peptide cream on a daily basis can reduce everything from forehead wrinkles to creases around the sides of your mouth.
You’ll also want to add a moisturizer to your daily regimen. A lot of women like to use a moisturizer in the morning and evening. Not only is dry skin uncomfortable, but it will also make you look tired and worn out. Consistently using a quality moisturizer is the best way to avoid both of those issues.
Our ReNew Youth™ cream with retinol can be the best of both. Retinol is a proven wrinkle cream with a long track record of success, and also contains a built-in hyaluronic acid moisturizer, so you will typically not need a supplemental moisturizer unless you have very dry skin.
The sun is the number one source of skin damage. While it’s scary to realize that you can damage your skin every time that you go outside, the good news is a broad spectrum sunscreen is all you need to protect yourself. If you generally go outside during the day, you can simply apply sunscreen before you leave the house. Otherwise, you can keep a bottle in your purse and use it whenever you’re getting ready to go outside.
Once you begin following a dedicated skin care regimen, you will see a noticeable improvement in as little as two to three weeks!
