From sun protection and anti-aging creams to moisturizers and cleansers, the world of skin care can get a little overwhelming. Innovative ingredients, new cleansing techniques and trendy tricks pop up every day, but there is something to be said for time honored tips that continue to stand the test of time. The following are a few ways to win at flawless skin, no filter required.
1. Avoid the Sun
There really is no such thing as a “healthy tan” no matter how good you think you look with one. The sun does more damage to your skin than you may even be able to see on the surface. Don’t risk it and be sure to lather up with sunscreen every time you head outside. Even in the winter, don’t skimp on the SPF. Pick your favorite sunscreen and add it to any of our hydrating moisturizers like our Whipped Macadamia Nut Lotion, our Whipped Olive Lotion, or our Whipped Rice Bran Lotion, for sweet-smelling protection.
2. Gently Exfoliate
Too often those who want clear skin think they have to harshly clear out dead skin cells. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Instead, opt for gentle exfoliation with our Microdermabrasion Face Wash to refresh and polish your skin. Ours is made with pumice stone and Shea butter so it’s even gentle enough to use every day!
3. Invest in a Great Moisturizer
You don’t have to tell us twice! We absolutely love moisturizers and our many varieties keep you hydrated from head to toe. Our Beauty Cream made from Rose Hip Oil is high in Vitamin C to help repair elastins in the skin so it’s perfect to use as an everyday face moisturizer. Our body lotions like our Whipped Avocado Lotion is packed with essential nutrients your skin craves like vitamins A, B1, B2, B5, vitamin D, E, minerals, protein, lecithin and fatty acids to penetrate and nourish even the driest skin.
4. Get Some Sleep
They don’t call it beauty rest for nuthin’! No matter how busy life gets, always try to sleep between 7 to 8 hours a night so your skin can reboot and refresh from the day. If you find yourself tossing and turning, try our Room and Linen Spray. Fragrances like lavender, baby powder, and bamboo lily give the feeling of fresh sheets to help you drift off to sleep faster.
5. Don’t Over Wash Your Face
There is a common misconception that in order for skin to be brilliant and bright it needs to be frequently washed with harsh cleansers. While you shouldn’t skimp on cleansing (and definitely don’t forget to wash your face each night before you hit the hay), always opt for a gentle cleanser like Gentle Castile Wash. Though this is a thick gel, it is one of the mildest formulas available. It’s perfect for all skin types including sensitive and mature skin.
6. Use a Natural Anti-aging Solution
Anti-aging doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, we make it easy with our Emu Oil. Our 100% pure Emu Oil is a fantastic anti-aging option because it delivers fatty acids to the outer layers of your skin to help your skin stay smooth and hydrated no matter what the season.
Flawless skin shouldn’t just be reserved for celebrities and those with amazing genetics. With the above dermatologist-tested tips, it’s possible for everyone to look their best and have healthy, glowing skin day after day, year after year.
