When “life happens”….we see it right on our skin. The stress that builds up throughout our day-to-day lives often shows itself through breakouts on our face. Dirt, oils, and sweat accumulate on the skin and settle deep into our pores. If we don’t use the right products to clean our skin and target these problem areas, the breakouts will keep resurfacing and we will move farther away from that glorious glow we all crave. Additionally, when we wear masks, the friction and heat caused by the covering poses an extra irritation to our skin. That’s why Dr. Dennis Gross has launched a series of new skincare kits that target breakouts at the source to keep our skin clean and clear! We can’t wait to get into these.

We’ve all heard the phrase “pH balanced,” but what does that mean to us in the world of skincare? Potential of hydrogen, or pH, measures the amount of acidity or alkalinity in a substance, and since our bodies are composed of over 70% water, this is an important element to watch. Though the general rule is that maintaining a slightly alkaline environment in the body helps to prevent disease, as bacteria and viruses, even malignant cells, cannot survive in an alkaline environment (drink your Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, people!), the opposite is true for the skin.

You’ve seen it in magazines, social media, and it seems like the newbie on the beauty scene – but if you thought double cleansing was created to dupe you into buying more products, let us enlighten you. It’s quite the opposite, actually.

We all want to wake up every morning and look in the mirror at a face that is glowing and radiant. Attaining radiant and balanced skin depends greatly on the routine that you put together to take care of it. Your skincare routine can bring you more than just visual results, but it can bring a sense of serenity, rejuvenation and an elusive sense of total wellbeing. Struggling with pesky breakouts and excess oils or the inevitable process of aging are the natural elements that make up the individuality of our skin. The best way to give your skin the treatment it needs (especially when you’re stuck at home without your favorite esthetician) no matter what type of skin you have is to use the right products.

There is a magical ingredient on our skincare horizons that is making glowing strides in hydration, complexion, and anti-aging. Enter: Hyaluronic Acid. This versatile molecule exists naturally in our skin to hold water and maintain balanced moisture. Similar to collagen, our bodies stop producing the substance after a certain age, so it becomes increasingly important to supplement the loss of hyaluronic acid by incorporating it into our daily skincare routines.

Did you know that the skin is the human body’s largest organ? It works hard day in and day out to protect your body from harmful elements in your surroundings, like germs and toxic substances, the cold and sun rays, and more. You may not care too much about it, but take a quick look at your face or body, and you’ll realize how much you pay attention to your skin. It’s high time that you give your skin the proper attention and love it needs. Help your skin do its job more effectively and efficiently for longer by developing a skincare routine. Here are a few reasons why you should make “skincare” at the top of your must-prioritize list this year. Our skin sheds itself Sure, your skin may look its best today, but since it loses roughly 30,000 dead skin cells every minute, your healthy skin today may turn dull by tomorrow. Getting a regular facial , or a body scrub around twice or once a month (depends on how often your skin needs it), can help rid face of dead skin. If you opt to exfoliate at home, you can use a mild facial scrub or chemical exfoliant at least twice (for oily/combination skin; once for sensitive skin) a week. This is a relaxing way to get your skin to its tip-top shape. Look your best Having clear and healthy skin can help boost your self-confidence. This is true especially for people who have acne-prone skin. The face is the part of your body that people see first when they meet you, and who doesn’t want to put your best face forward when seeing others? A well-established skincare routine can help you achieve a flawless and radiant skin of your dreams. After all, when you look good, you feel good. Beautiful skin is a lifelong commitment Getting gorgeous skin doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a lot of effort, resources, discipline, and time. Also, you shouldn’t stop when you start seeing results from your skincare routine, you need to continue doing it. If you want to have healthy skin by age 50, you need to start now, and the choices you make today will turn that into reality. Prevention is cure A good skincare routine and habits can help keep breakouts at bay and protect your skin from the harsh sun and pollution. It can also help prevent potential skin issues in the future, like closed comedones, dry patches, and liver spots. Having an effective skincare routine can cut your visits to a dermatologist. It can also save you money by avoiding skin problems that can be costly. Take appropriate measures now before your skin gets skin discoloration or acne scars. A skincare routine is the start of other healthy routines A good and positive skincare practice is a step into the door of carrying out bigger self-care routines, like doing hair and scalp treatments, exfoliating and moisturizing your body, observing a healthy diet, exercising, getting enough sleep, developing a reading routine, and trying out things that you love to do. Either of these can start small, and some you might even begin doing unconsciously. Skincare is self-care Whether it’s a stressful day at work or a long road trip, something as simple as doing a skincare routine can help you de-stress. It’s just you and the mirror, alone in your bathroom or some space quiet. There’s something meditative about taking that 10 minutes just to sit and massage your face with products. In a way, it makes things more manageable. Are you finally convinced that you have to make time for skincare? Start a healthier skincare routine on your road to a younger-looking skin journey now and feel wonderful (inside and out) for years to come! You may consult with your dermatologist to help you create a suitable skincare routine for your skin type and to address your skin problems. AUTHOR BIO Julia is a beauty and lifestyle writer.
