What’s your skincare routine like? Does it stick to a few simple steps, or include an array of products to help your skin stay healthy? Perhaps you don’t really have a skincare routine or don’t know where to start. Whatever your level of expertise, we can help! Here are five tips to help you get the most out of your skincare routine.
Wash your face every day (yes, even when you don’t feel like it)
It’s a basic step in your skincare routine, but an important one: wash your face. Dirt, sweat, oil, bacteria, and other junk can build up on your skin throughout the day. If you don’t wash it off, it can cause irritation as well as clog your pores and lead to pimples. Aim for washing your face twice a day: once in the morning and once at night before bed. If youhadto choose one or the other, wash your face at night and at least give it a quick rinse in the morning. You definitely don’t want to leave makeup, sweat, and other irritants on your face overnight! Washing your face also makes for a great addition to a calming bedtime routine.
For the best results, look for a facial cleanser that’s non-drying and rich in nutrients. Natural Radiant Life’s Facial Cleanser is exactly that - it’s a deep-penetrating cleanser that gets your skin nice and clean while delivering minerals and pure ingredients to help your skin look and feel its best.
To use, place three to four pumps of Facial Cleanser into your palm and add a few drops of water. Lather it up and rub it on your face and neck, rinsing and patting dry when done. Our Facial Cleanser can be used in the morning and at night for the best results.
Exfoliate a few times per week
In addition to washing your face twice a day, exfoliating a few times per week can help you achieve soft, smooth skin. When dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and more build up on your face, they can become trapped within your pores, causing breakouts. No one wants that! Exfoliating sloughs away dead skin cells and other pore-clogging materials to help keep your pores nice and clean. Removing dead, dry skin can also reveal healthier-looking skin for a radiant appearance! Don’t overdo it, though - limit exfoliating to a few times a week for the best results.
Don’t forget to moisturize
The secret to soft, smooth skin? Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Just like your body needs water to keep it hydrated, your skin needs to be hydrated as well. Moisturizing your skin daily helps prevent it from drying out or becoming overly oily, both of which could cause irritation and pimples. Keeping your skin moisturized helps it stay healthy. Use moisturizer after washing your face, after taking a shower, or whenever your skin feels like it could use a hydrating boost.

Make sunscreen part of your routine
Remember when tanning beds were all the rage? How about slathering on the tanning oil and laying out in the sun? Now we know how damaging UV rays from the sun and tanning beds are and understand the importance of protecting your skin. Wearing sunscreen daily is a great way to shield your skin from harmful ultraviolet light while helping prevent signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. When it comes to protecting your face, look for a moisturizer with SPF.
Our AM Moisturizer offers SPF protection to keep your skin healthy. It’s also made with fulvic acid mineral complex, aloe vera, cucumber, and frankincense to soothe and revitalize your skin.
Enhance your skincare routine with products specific to your needs
Everyone’s skin is different and has different needs. If you have oily skin, for example, some products may work better for you than they do for people with dry skin, and vice versa. Using products tailored specifically to your unique needs can help your skin look and feel great and show off your natural radiance! Looking for some great products to add to your skincare routine?
