The new year is the perfect time to commit to a new skincare regimen, or to up your current routine with a few extra steps that'll give you the glow you've been dreaming about. Below you'll find a few underrated skincare steps that'll make all the difference.
Double-cleansing is a step popular in Japan and South Korea, and it's sole purpose is to remove stubborn dirt and makeup that a one-pass cleanse wouldn't typically get. Look for a good oil-based cleansing balm such as Aromatica Orange Cleansing Sherbet. It melts right into the skin to gently and effectively removes makeup, oil-based impurities and dirt while hydrating the skin. Rinse and then follow up with water-based cleanser.
2. Serum Savior
You face takes on tons of stress during the week, and needs to replenish itself at night. The best way to boost the flexibility and the reparation of your skin is to work a great serum into your routine. A delightfully-scented and lightweight formula like Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Revitalize & Glow Serum will sink into your skin without leaving any residue. Even the most dull and dry skin will drink up this formula, leaving it glowy, luminous and dewy.
3. Face Oils
Facial oils are my personal go-to rescue product because they cure everything! Space NK's Artemis Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil is pricey, but it's so worth it. It's formulated with a blend of powerful activated ingredients which will help achieve a "clean, healthy glow from within." Black cumin and pink grapefruit oils will reduce redness, tone and clarify your complexion. If there's one thing you need for 2017, it's this one.
4. Eye Contour Cream
The skin around our eyes is delicate and the first area to show any sign of aging, so you need an eye cream that will help nourish and protect it. Grown Alchemist Eye Cream is my go-to. Helianthus Seed Extract helps repair the skin's barrier, while Tocopherol reduces fine lines and protects from future damage.
