What Your Skin Needs: The AM to PM Guide
Let’s get real, taking care of your skin is a long-term, effort-intensive commitment. There are so many creams, gels, serums, and sprays that you’re told you should be using for your skin type. To make matters even more confusing, your skin needs different products to look its best at different times of the day. When you factor in the environmental stressors that your skin is exposed to, it becomes clear that slapping on some facewash and sunscreen at the start of your day just isn’t enough.
Does this mean your skin needs a big stash of products to look its best? Not if you ask us. We believe that you simply need to find the most potent and bioactive ingredient-based products that can multitask to provide your skin with the care it needs. In today’s article, we’ll be taking you through some of our favorite products that will help keep your skin fresh and bright throughout the day.
The skincare routine explained
Your skin is an organ that is frequently exposed to various external agents like pollution, the sun, weather changes, dirt, dust, and germs. While a lot of your skin health depends on the inner workings of your body, certain issues are prone to be amplified without appropriate external care methods. Understanding what your skin needs at different times of the day is a key step in figuring out a daily skincare routine that works for you. Think of it as building a habit that can improve and sustain supple and happy skin.
A big part of daily skincare is hydration and healing. This is where the magic of Curaloe comes in! Not only do Curaloe’s Aloe Vera formulations treat a large number of conditions, like acne, psoriasis, and eczema, but they also work wonders when it comes to the protection and rejuvenation of the skin. That's why we recommend it as part of your daily skincare routine. Read on to know more.
Sunrise: Waking your skin up
Your morning skincare routine is rooted in protection and hydration. This part of your skincare regimen should focus on protecting your skin from UV radiation through sunscreen with a strong SPF. Most dermatologists recommend using at least SPF 30 or higher.
Since the skin tends to lose moisture overnight, mornings are also the perfect time to rehydrate with a good moisturizer. It’s pertinent to note that a daytime routine should add fewer layers of product to your skin to prevent your pores from clogging with sweat and dirt. That’s why a light moisturizer like our Hydrating Day Cream is ideal for soft and protected skin.
Noon: Top up on nourishment
If you’re someone who spends lots of time outdoors, it’s important to reapply your sunscreen every few hours. In case your skin tends to get greasy, a toner like ours works well to clean out dirt and balance the pH of your skin, leaving it looking refreshed. A spritz of a facial mist that contains Aloe Vera or rosewater is a great add-on for that extra dewy look.
Sunset: Getting your skin ready for bed
Your nighttime routine should pay attention to enriching and healing your skin. The first step is to remove your makeup. Cleanse your skin with our Cleansing Milk which gently wipes off excess oils and impurities without stripping away your skin’s natural oils. Follow up with our Facial Wash Pure Skin to deeply clean your pores and reduce flare-ups.
When the sun goes down, it’s time to layer on the skin boosters that you can’t use during the day. Nighttime is perfect for stronger ingredients like retinol, peptides, and skin acids. Finish up with our Hydrating Night Cream which hydrates, softens, and renews your skin while you sleep.
Good genes can get you far, but skin that glows even after the golden hour is over doesn’t happen without effort. Figure out what products work best for your skin and create a daily skincare routine that you look forward to! Remember, you don’t need a thousand expensive products to have shiny, healthy skin. All you need are a few reliable products and a whole lot of consistency to achieve the skin of your dreams!
