A minimalist skin care routine offers more within less time
Cleansers play a very important role in your skincare regimen, which is why it is the first thing you need to do in the morning and the last thing before you go to bed. Nighttime is the most crucial out of the two to cleanse your face, as throughout the day your skin is affected by the billions of pollution particles floating in the air and covering your face. Air pollution like smog, dust, traffic fumes, outdoor/indoor air, UV rays and even water and bacteria, can really take a toll on your skin without proper skincare.
Pollutants sink deep into skin and can cause acne, dark spots, eczema, dryness, premature aging and dullness to your skin. Free radicals in our air or Air pollution is also known to damage collagen, which is basically breaking down the strength of your skin and elasticity. Collagen is a protein and fiber located below the top layer of your skin in your “Dermis” which is the 2nd layer of your skin. Having collagen plays an important role with Aging & Repairing skin conditions from things like acne and wrinkles.
Cleansing can help remove pollutants and restore your
skin’s radiance by clearing pores and creating glowing skin

THE FINAL TOUCH
A great way to stick to a healthy sunscreen habit is to build it into your morning routine. Always applying sunscreen under your makeup—either with a protective moisturizer or after your moisturizer. Apply a thin coat of sunscreen, about a quarter size for the face, neck, and don’t forget the ears. Let the sunscreen soak in before applying any makeup.
Protect your skin from UV radiation; which causes aging and sun damage to your skin like age spots and wrinkles, by wearing a sunscreen that can protect against UV Rays. Both UVA and UVB rays can lead to skin cancer, plus UVA rays cause wrinkles and speed up signs of aging, and UVB rays cause sunburns. A minimum of SPF 30, which protects against 97% of the sun’s UVB rays.
Know your product: A quick look through the ingredients list can help ensure you have the quality and coverage you need. Make sure they have both UVA and UVB protection, so look for the term “broad spectrum” in the label.
