Instagram Giveaway Alert: Win 7 Self-Care Inspired Skin Products


We tend to associate the words, “self-care” with elaborate routines or trips to the spa. But life gets in the way, and we don’t always have time (or money)  for facials and massages. Here are seven easy, time-sensitive ways to incorporate self-care into your routine.

Cleanse the day away

A simple nightly cleansing routine can mean the difference between a blemished complexion and clear skin. No matter how tired you are at the end of the day, makeup removal is crucial. Sleeping in makeup means pores filled with foundation, sebum build-up, and dirt from environmental pollutants. You can make your routine easier by choosing formulas that work as both a cleanser and makeup remover. Cleansing already makes skin happy, so opt for fun-colored formulas or bottles that will have you looking forward to wiping away and winding down.

Apply serum to address all skin issues

Skin needs a little more TLC to stay hydrated, firm, and bright. A simple extra step for your  facial routine: apply serum after you cleanse and follow with moisturizer. Serums infuse skin with a cocktail of supercharged ingredients like vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to stimulate cellular turnover, repair skin’s moisture barrier, and protect against free-radical damage. Typically associated with anti-aging regimens, serums treat fine lines and wrinkles, but also address acne, lack of elasticity, and dullness to keep skin healthy and youthful. In the long run, a good serum saves you time and money spent on facials and peels.

Deep condition your skin

You’re probably familiar with the nourishing effects of weekly deep conditioning for hair, but the same goes for your skin. Whether you opt for deep moisture on the daily or as a weekly treatment, all skin types benefit from slathering on a nutrient-rich emollient. Look for formulas packed with fatty acids and botanicals to help kick-start lasting hydration, erase fine lines and wrinkles, and calm irritated complexions. The easiest way to deep condition skin? Elect for a conditioning nighttime treatment that works while you rest for moisturized skin in the morning.

Exfoliate. Every. Single. Week.

We’d like to compare good exfoliation to the act of hitting the reset button for your complexion. Once you shed the dead skin cells, you can enjoy a clean, clear slate ready to effectively absorb your skincare routine. Exfoliation is the best way to keep skin feeling smooth and looking youthful, hands down. The easiest way to exfoliate? Find a treatment that does the work for you. Anything from daily scrubs to powerful acids can slough away dead skin cells to brighten and detoxify, leaving your skin looking healthier than ever. Depending on your skin type, exfoliate at least once or twice a week.

Make oil a staple in your hair routine

Pick an oil and make it a hair habit. With every drop, pure oils or oil blends penetrate strands to deeply condition, protect, strengthen and smooth. Use thicker emollients as a pre-shampoo or overnight treatment, and choose more lightweight oils for heat protection, frizz control and instant shine. We recommend finding one multi-use oil or oil-based blend that works for your specific hair type as both a weekly treatment and daily styling solution.

Give your lips some love

Cold weather, drying lipsticks and plain old neglect can wreak havoc on lips. To fully revive this sensitive skin area, you’re going to need a little more than tinted balm. Integrate an ultra-nourishing salve into your routine to nourish and plump, leaving skin softer over time. Look for formulas with hyaluronic acid and omegas to retexture and smoothen for restored softness and elasticity. Giving your lips some extra TLC can be as simple as applying an enriching cream or balm morning and night for smoother skin in no time.

Make bath time the best time

What night of the week are you definitely staying home? Make it “bath night.” A key part of self-care is creating time to rest physically and mentally—so transform your bath into a DIY spa and enjoy some well-deserved “me” time: no distractions, just candles, aromatic salts and scrubs, and pure relaxation. To get the most out of your bath sesh, dim the lights, play some peaceful tunes and scrub away leftover stress from your busy day with a deliciously scented body scrub.
