4 Beauty Products To Incorporate Into Your Beauty Routine Now
How extensive is your beauty routine? Do you feed your skin’s thirst with extravagant oils and butters? Or do you prefer to stick with drugstore face wash and makeup wipes? No need to be ashamed, we are all guilty of not putting as much effort into our beauty routines as we should. It usually starts with a binge phase — you go to the store, purchase several beauty products you wouldn’t normally buy, use them consistently for 2 weeks (3 if you’re lucky), then the half-used products seem to disappear into the back of your medicine cabinet, never to be seen again. Nailing down solid morning and nightly beauty routines could be the answer to having the flawless, young skin we all aim to achieve. These routines don’t have to be extensive, expensive, or complicated; they just need to target all the key areas without seeming like it is a dragged out, long process because if it does, chances are you will create excuse after excuse as to why you’re going to skip tonight or tomorrow or the next day!
So, we have pulled together two morning products and two nightly products that we feel are a necessity in any woman’s beauty routine. These products target dark spots, wrinkles, and acne marks and will leave your skin feeling better than ever!
1) A Moisturizer with SPF You’ve heard it many times, but using a moisturizer with SPF is an absolute must! Some foundations have SPF in them, which is great, but you should still seek out a morning moisturizer that has an SPF of at least 30 to ensure your face is protected. Blocking sunrays from your face will not only leave your skin with a healthy, radiant glow, but it will also help reduce the risk of getting wrinkles! Try: ‘Ultimate Miracle Worker’ Multi-Rejuvenating Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 by philosophy What It Does: This product is designed to moisturize, rejuvenate, and fight aging! Philosophy has created a formula that provides your face with rejuvenating nutrients, SPF coverage, and, over time, will have your complexion looking pore-less and firm.
2) Eye Cream If you've ever woken up, looked in the mirror, and regretted that extra hour you spent on Instagram last night, then this product is for you. We all know that the skin under our eyes has its ups and downs — some days we have to dab on a bit more concealer than usual, which isn't too alarming, but there is always that rare occasion where no amount of makeup can hide the dark, droopy bags on your face. Cue: Eye Cream!
Try: GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream by Origins What It Does: Origins' natural formula instantly reduces the coloring and puffiness of under-the-eye bags! With caffeine, Panax Ginseng, magnolia extract, and optic brighteners as the core ingredients, GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream is a must-have for any woman seeking less tired, refreshed, and radiant looking eyes.
1) Facial Oil When you think about products for your face, the word ‘oil’ might not sound very appealing. Still, incorporating a facial oil into your beauty routine is beneficial for even the oiliest skin! Facial oils are designed to lock in nutrients and smooth skin to create a flawless look without a heavy foundation.
Try: ‘Turnaround’ Revitalizing Treatment Oil by Clinique What It Does: This product is designed for all skin types and is guaranteed to work its magic while you’re sleeping, which will have you waking up refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready for the day!
2) Retinol Wrinkles: Some people have them, some people don’t, and others will inevitably fall into the curse at some point. Even if you have yet to visibly notice signs of aging, it’s never too early to start prepping your skin with anti-aging nutrients. Using a product with retinol is the best way start fighting the signs of aging — it’s never too early!
Try: ‘Skin Balancing’ Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with Retinol by Paula’s Choice What It Does: This formula creates a film over your skin that will nourish, repair, and help your face maintain firmness. It’s silky matte finish reduces irritation, yet provides an incredibly lightweight barrier to help fight wrinkles!
