1. double cleanse

Double cleansing is an excellent way to ensure your skin is thoroughly clean of ay blemish causing impurities. Start with an oil-based cleanse, like a cleansing balm or cleansing oil to effectively dissolve and lift away makeup, sunscreen, and excess sebum. This is an important step, as the oil-based cleanser helps break down oil-based impurities. Follow up with a water-based cleanser, like a cleansing gel or cream to remove any remaining residue, dirt, and sweat. This two-step cleansing process is crucial for clearing out pores, preventing breakouts, and allowing other skincare products to work more effectively.

2. hydrate inside & out

Hydration is the foundation of balanced and healthy skin. Drinking enough water is essential to maintain the skin's moisture levels, but don't forget to use a hydrating ingredients, such as Hyaluronic Acid & Panthenol, to lock in that moisture. Well-hydrated skin is less likely to produce excess oil and is more resilient against external stressors and water loss, meaning a healthy skin barrier, and clearer skin.

3. Use a Combination of AHA's and BHA's

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) are chemical exfoliants that help clear congestion and improve skin texture. AHAs, like glycolic or lactic acid, work on the skin's surface to exfoliate dead skin cells and improve the overall tone. BHAs, such as salicylic acid, are oil-soluble and penetrate deeper into the pores to dissolve sebum and clear out clogs. Using a combination of these acids in your skincare routine can help prevent and treat acne, as well as refine the skin's surface.

4. Use 2-5% Niacinamide Daily

Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, is a versatile and gentle skincare ingredient. It helps balance oil production, reduce inflammation, and fade post-blemish marks (hyperpigmentation). Niacinamide can be used daily, and its anti-inflammatory properties make it suitable for sensitive skin. By regulating sebum production and promoting a more even skin tone, niacinamide contributes to clearer and smoother skin.

5. Use 0.05% Retinol 2-3 Times Per Week

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and is known for its ability to reduce breakouts, unclog pores, and fade hyperpigmentation. When used at a lower concentration, such as 0.05%, it is less likely to cause irritation. Using retinol 2-3 times a week is an effective way to stimulate cell turnover, reduce acne, and improve skin texture. It also promotes collagen production, which can help diminish fine lines and acne scarring over time.

When incorporating these tips into your skincare routine, remember to introduce new products gradually to allow your skin to adapt. It's also essential to wear sunscreen daily, especially when using AHAs and retinol, as they can increase skin sensitivity to the sun.
