5 skincare hacks you didn’t know you needed!
A streamlined routine that serves the most is always a good idea! Below are 5 expert approved skin care hacks that’ll change your ritual game using our all-in-one AM + PM serums:
- R&R with a Quick Massage:
To use our serums, apply a few drops on to the palms of your hands and gently pat on to clean, dry skin. Then, follow with a skincare tool such as a guasha, facial roller or our personal favorite, the kansa wand. You can also pop your face tools into the fridge 10-15 minutes before using as the cool sensation aids in reducing skin inflammation and puffiness. If you don’t happen to have a skincare tool handy, massage the product gently into the skin in an upward motion using just your fingers. This key step is a facial yoga technique that promotes product absorption, helps destress the skin, and is known for age defying results over time.
- Bodycare is Skincare Too:
Skincare doesn’t have to stop with the face. We recommend using our serums on the neck and decolletage area as well as on elbows and knees. In winter months especially, skin can be extra dry. Our nutrient packed serums are designed for year round, multi-use.
To enjoy and make the most of our serums further, mix a few drops with honey and sugar cane crystals for an exfoliating mask and to gently scrub any dead skin away.
- Hydrate On-the-Go:
Air travel in particular can strip the skin of its moisture. According to a study, the humidity levels on an aircraft drop by 10% which dehydrates the skin and can make the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles more prominent. Next time you fly, before leaving (or upon arrival to your destination), add a few drops of our Sunrise Glow Serum or Sunset Restore Serum onto a sheet mask of your choice. Then gently massage the surface of the sheet mask as you apply it onto your face. It’s so satisfying, not to mention, relaxing!
- Dewy Finish?… Yes, Please!:
This hack is not only skincare expert approved, but a favorite amongst makeup artists. Add one to two drops of our AM or PM serums (depending on time of day) into your foundation of choice and mix well. This will not only moisturize your skin, but also help in smooth application of the foundation. The result… a natural, soft, dewy finish. We’ll take it!
- Soft and supple hands:
Due to excessive washing and sanitizer use in this pandemic era, hands are prone to losing moisture. Dry skin can be itchy and extremely uncomfortable. Next time you use either of our serums, rub any remaining product onto the palms and backs of your hands. This will help soothe and hydrate your hands, leaving them extra soft.
Bonus Pro Tip:
Washing your face with hot water can dehydrate the skin, weakening the skin barrier and aggravating acne, rosacea and other concerns. Alternatively, using cold water will help calm the skin and prevent additional irritation. After cleansing, pat your face dry before applying our Sunrise Glow Serum or Sunset Restore Serum and follow with SPF (in the morning) and moisturizer as needed.
