The Key to Glowing Skin – Consistency

More is, well, more… right? When talking about your skincare routine, that may not always be the case. While your skin will benefit from exfoliating, cleansing, adding a serum or two and a moisturizer to your daily routine, the most important thing you can do for your skin is to commit to a regimen that you can manage and follow. 

Whether your skincare routine is one step or five, consistency is key. Transforming your skin takes time, and it isn’t a process that can or should be rushed, which is why finding a routine that you can stick with for the long haul is so important. Even when you’re using the best skin care products, the only way to maximize your results is to use them regularly. Many products require at least six weeks of consistent use to see accurate results. Start small with the most essential steps until you can build up to a longer and more in-depth regimen. To start, select a high-quality cleanser and moisturizer to jumpstart your skincare goals.

Finding a cleanser that targets your skin concerns, whether those are dryness or oiliness and acne, is always a great place to start when building your skincare regimen. When you are choosing a cleanser, look for one that not only targets your skin concerns, but one that is formulated with high-quality ingredients to ensure that you are feeding your skin the best possible elements. Our favorite cleansers include the Gentle Cream Cleanser for dry sensitive skin, the Glycolic Cleanser for acne or anti-aging or the Botanical Cleanser for all skin types.

Let your skin soak up hydration with a high-quality moisturizer. There are many moisturizers on the market that combine two or more benefits in one product, making it even easier to stay on track with your skincare routine. Picking one of these multitasking favorites such as a tinted moisturizer or a moisturizer with SPF will combine two steps in one. Our absolute light moisturizing favorites include the Growth Factor Renewal Cream and Green Tea Moisturizer. For a heavier cream try Timeless Moisture.
