Your Essential Guide to Back-to-Basics Skincare

As summer comes to an end, you might find yourself ready to simplify your life and start fall off with a fresh start. Now is the perfect time to get on track with your eating, organizing your home, and even getting back-to-basics when it comes to your skincare routine. So if you’re ready to simplify your life when it comes to your skin, we’ve got you covered with these five simple steps—easy, quick and effective. 


Step 1: Cleanse

Try a cleansing duo ideal for your skin type that deep cleans pores by dissolving trapped sebum with a nutrient-rich cleansing oil, then gently exfoliates and tightens pores with an herbal toner. A cleansing duo will give your skin an extra boost in just one step.


Step 2: Apply a Serum

Highly active and concentrated, serums are designed to improve skin tone, texture and overall health. Think of a serum as the secret weapon for treating skin issues like dehydration, discoloration, dullness, fine lines, or acne. In fact, they can be so beneficial, some experts say you are doing your skin a disservice if you are not using the right serum. They absorb quickly with maximum benefits—the ultimate way to keep your routine simple yet highly-effective. 


Step 3: Moisturize 

No matter what your skin type, moisturizing is one of the most important steps you can take each day. Look for a product that hydrates, plumps, and nourishes dehydrated skin with all-natural ingredients––the goal is to protect and seal in hydration, helping your skin get through the day looking and feeling great.


Step 4: Care for Your Eyes

It may seem like an extra step when you are already moisturizing, but remember the eyes are the first place most people show their age. Don’t neglect this delicate area, instead gently pat on a nutrient-rich eye cream designed to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, giving skin a firmer, tighter appearance while reducing puffiness.


Step 5: Wear Sunscreen

Practicing safe sun is probably the most important step you take in your daily skincare routine. The reality is, why do the rest if you don’t protect your skin from aging and skin cancer? When it comes to applying sunscreen to your face, you want to incorporate it into your morning skincare routine by applying liberally to your face and neck (and hands) after your moisturizer and before your makeup. It’s recommended to reapply for all day protection.
