Thanks to advanced research, it’s easy for us to identify several skin concerns and seek out individual products to address each one.
Before we know it, our skin care routine is a many-layered complex concoction of multiple lotions, creams, serums and ointments. But there is such a thing as having too much of a good thing.
Not everyone has the time and money to invest in such a routine, and sometimes the products aren’t designed to work together, causing more skin concerns.
The answer is to simplify by looking for multipurpose products. When applied in the correct order, you can have an effective skin care routine in four simple steps.
Cleanse: Wash your face
This one is pretty straightforward. In order for skin to absorb products correctly, it needs to be clean. It’s especially important to remove makeup and any remnants of the day before you go to bed.
Start with a makeup remover, such as Artistry Skin Nutrition™ Micellar Makeup Remover + Cleanser. Then select a cleanser that is correct for your skin type. Artistry Studio™ Glow Boss Cleanser + Exfoliator is a great choice for all skin types.
On the oily side? Consider Artistry Skin Nutrition™ Balancing Jelly Cleanser, which effectively rids skin of dirt, impurities and excess oil and while leaving it feeling clean and comfortable, not dry or taut.
Tone: Prepping your skin
After cleansing, apply toner to rebalance and prepare your skin for the remaining products. Old school toners used to strip skin of moisture with harsh alcohols, but today’s versions condition and nourish.
Different toners have different purposes, so choose one for your skin’s needs. Artistry Skin Nutrition offers toners for normal-to-dry skin or normal-to-oily skin, but they both include White Chia Seed Gel, which works to support the balance of your skin’s microbiome.
What’s your skin’s microbiome? It’s the collection of good and bad microorganisms found there. When they are in a healthy balance, it helps prevent skin stressors from developing and that helps stabilize your skin’s healthy look!
Treat: Focus on your skin care concerns
Now that you’ve cleansed and prepped your skin, it’s time to address any skin concerns with treatments and serums. Products in this step are typically concentrated formulas meant to treat acne, wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration, etc.
The Artistry Signature Select™ Personalized Serum line allows you to choose up to three serums in one when you select the specific amplifiers designed for your skin concerns: hydration, anti-wrinkle, firming, anti-spot, brightening.
Do you have clogged pores? Consider Artistry™ Intensive Skincare Renewing Peel a few times a week. By breaking down the protein bonds that hold dead cells at the skin’s surface, this innovative technology helps skin improve its natural skin cell turnover.
Moisturize: Lock it in
For the final step, it’s time to lock in all those earlier products with a moisturizer. Not only does a moisturizer provide, well, moisture, it seals in your toners and treatments to make those products even more effective.
Choose the hydrating or balancing moisturizer from the Artistry Skin Nutrition line based on your skin type. For daytime use, make sure it includes sunscreen to help prevent the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
At night, you can opt to use a heavier moisturizer for even more hydration or something like the Artistry Studio™ Zen Daze Ahead Facial Oil. It has 300 mg of CBD to instantly calm and soothe your skin while deeply nourishing it with moisture. Plus, you can enjoy the lavender scent as you drift off to sleep!
That’s it, just four simple steps. Despite the complicated routines floating around, you don’t need 12-plus products in your skin care arsenal for it to work. Simply choose your products wisely, follow the above order to maximize effectiveness, and you’re good to go.
