Are you on a quest for healthy, glowing skin but not sure where to start? Achieving a radiant complexion is more than a matter of luck; it’s about setting the right skin care goals. From sun protection to deep hydration, we’re going to guide you through five essential skin care goals you should strive for if you want to achieve radiant-looking skin.
5 Skin Care Goals You Should Start Now
Goal 1: Reduce Premature Signs Of Aging
One of the most effective ways to reduce premature signs of aging is the regular use of sunscreen. Sunscreen acts as a protective barrier against the sun’s harmful UV rays, which are a primary contributor to early skin aging. While time spent in sunshine can be good for the soul, UV exposure can lead to wrinkles, fine lines and a loss of elasticity in the skin, not to mention an increased risk of skin cancer. By applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days or during winter, you provide your skin with an essential line of defense that preserves the skin’s natural collagen, overall health and youthfulness. SPF is intended to be reapplied throughout the day, especially after a swim or a workout, to keep your skin shielded from sun damage.
Our Radiant Protection SPF Fluid is a great way to start the day. This formula shields the skin from the sun’s harsh UVA and UVB rays with zinc oxide, for broad-spectrum sun protection, and bakuchiol and niacinamide, to reveal smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Think of it as your secret weapon for all-day protection. You can view the entire sun care range here to shield yourself from harmful UV rays.
Goal 2: Reduce And Prevent Breakouts
Even if your skin is well-protected against sun damage, the quest for perfect, glowing skin can still face obstacles like breakouts. These troublesome issues arise when pores get clogged with a combination of oil, dirt and dead skin cells, leading to inflamed and noticeable blemishes. To effectively manage breakouts, it’s essential to maintain a consistent cleansing routine that removes impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils. You may be familiar with double cleansing, a staple in the Korean 10-step skincare regimen. Double cleansing involves two distinct types of cleansers. The first step uses an oil-based cleanser to gently lift off surface impurities like makeup, sunscreen and excess sebum. This type of cleanser attracts and draws out oil-based debris from the skin. Step two follows this wash with a water-based cleanser to ensure a thorough clean. This second step is crucial for removing any remaining residue, breaking down the oil components of any lingering impurities.
Regular exfoliation is another powerful method for reducing breakouts. By removing dead skin cells, exfoliation prevents pore blockages, which helps transform dull, tired skin into a radiant complexion. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), such as lactic acid, aid in the removal of dead skin cells to keep pores looking clear. Consider adding exfoliating products into your skin care routine to encourage fresh, new skin cells to come to the surface.
After laying the groundwork for clearer skin, let’s now focus on the delicate eye area (often the first place to reveal signs of aging).
Goal 3: Minimize The Look Of Eye Wrinkles
Achieving the fourth skin care goal involves turning your attention to the delicate eye area. It’s often said that the eyes are a reflection of life’s joys! Yet, with time, this joy can also leave its mark in the form of fine lines and wrinkles around the delicate eye area. Facial muscles connect directly to our skin, so, every smile or frown makes these underlying muscles contract and expand, often resulting in undesired crow’s feet around the eyes.
To combat eye wrinkles, try one of our best sellers, the Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream. The Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream employs naturally derived plant peptides, algae extracts and a Smart Collagen+ Complex to visibly lift and plump the eye area. It also contains botanical hyaluronic acid to smooth, plump and maintain long-lasting hydration. One of our website reviewers, Kaitlyn, says that this eye cream is her new favorite, stating: “I have tried so many expensive medical grade eye creams and this eye cream beats them all! I wake up with hydrated undereyes and I look refreshed!”
Goal 4: Promote Skin Elasticity & Firmness On Your Neck & Face
Now that you know how to improve the eye area, you’ll want to draw your attention to improving the overall look of elasticity and firmness in your skin texture. And don’t forget the neck! The neck is an important area that often gets overlooked; however, it’s just as susceptible to signs of aging as the face. If you’re noticing saggy skin on your neck, face or jawline, ingredients like peptides and botanicals will help. Our Bamboo Firming Fluid, for example, is designed to make the skin look firmer and lifted. This concentrate is formulated with bamboo, a Natural Retinol Alternative and Swiss green apples to improve the look of saggy skin around the face, jawline and neck. But remember, skin firmness is not just about topical treatments. A balanced diet, staying hydrated and protecting your skin from sun damage also play significant roles in maintaining its elasticity and firmness.
Goal 5: Enhance Skin Hydration
Well-hydrated skin not only looks plump and healthy but also functions more efficiently — especially when protecting itself. In terms of lifestyle habits, staying well-hydrated will help your skin maintain moisture and elasticity. If your skin feels zapped of moisture, adding a refreshing toner to your daily ritual is the easiest change you can make. Our Stone Crop Hydrating Mist, as the name suggests, features stone crop, a potent plant that replenishes moisture and brightens the look of the skin. In addition, facial oils also stand out as one of the top choices for providing essential hydration. Try our Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil, which combines active ingredients for an intense dose of hydration to improve the look of skin tone and texture.
