The Best Way to Wash Your Face

facial exercisesYour daily skin care regimen can be just as important as facial exercises for fighting the signs of aging. The first step of your protocol should be washing your face. While it seems like an easy task, many people do it incorrectly. This can result in breakouts, an increase in the appearance of wrinkles and other unsightly damage.

The skin on your face is delicate and more sensitive than other areas of your body. The Stratum corneum, which is the outer layer of the dermis, is formed from dead skin cells connected by lipids, fatty compounds that help your skin retain moisture. You want to avoid damaging the lipids at all costs! Yet you don’t want dead cells to build up too much either or skin will appear dull and lackluster.

Avoid this by washing your face the right way! Start by taking off your makeup with a gentle remover using soft, easy strokes, especially around the delicate eye area. When you’re ready to apply cleanser, use warm to cool water—hot water can dissolve the lipids and strip skin of necessary oils. Apply your favorite cleanser using your fingertips and massage into your face using gentle, circular motions. Start at the bottom of your jaw and move upwards—think of defying gravity every time you cleanse. When you move downwards, you’re actually pulling the skin down, which promotes sagging. Strive to wash your face for a least 30 seconds of washing your face so the cleanser has time to work its magic.

If your skin feels irritated or there is visible redness, you are not being gentle enough. When you finish, gently pat your skin dry with a soft face towel. Then you are ready to follow the next step of your skin care protocol.

5 Tips for Using Retinol 500 333 Facercise

5 Tips for Using Retinol

facial exercisesWinter is the perfect time of year to add retinol to your beauty routine. Retinol is a vitamin A-derivative with powerful anti-aging effects that can dramatically change the appearance and texture of your skin. Regular use results in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and “sun spots.”

Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is one of our best-sellers! While our products are mild, some retinols can cause dryness and irritation. Read on to learn five tips for using retinol effectively without any of these issues.

1. Start With a Gentle Product

It’s important to slowly introduce retinol to your regimen. Avoid starting with a prescription retinoid, as these can be too harsh on skin. Using a non-prescription retinol like Retinol Skin Conditioner is the safest, most gentle way to achieve results without irritation.

2. Go Slow

When you add retinol to your skin care program, don’t use it every night from the get-go. Retinol is a biologically active ingredient that needs a slow introduction. Start by using it every other night during the first week. On the second week, use it two nights in a row and take the third night off. Repeat. If your skin is extra sensitive, you may want to start off using it twice a week and then stepping up to every other night the following week. Follow either of these programs for the first three to four weeks and then you can add retinol in to your routine five to seven nights per week, depending on how your skin reacts to it. If you do experience any irritation or redness, cut back.

3. Apply to Dry Skin

For best results, wait 20 to 30 minutes after washing your face before applying a retinol product.

4. Wear Sunscreen Daily

Retinols make your skin more photosensitive, so be sure to apply sunscreen every single day. Sunlight can also render them ineffective, so if you don’t protect your skin from the sun, you’ll waste all that good product!

5. Moisturize Wisely

Many people apply moisturizer on top of their retinol. If you plan to do this, make sure the retinol absorbs a minimum of 20 minutes. If you apply moisturizer immediately, it will dilute the retinol and reduce its effectiveness.
