How-To: Preventative Skincare
March 10, 2023
We all know that our skin is the largest organ of our body and it is exposed to various environmental factors, such as pollution, UV radiation, and extreme weather conditions, on a daily basis. Moreover, the aging process also affects the skin, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. However, the good news is that with the right skincare regimen, we can slow down the aging process and keep our skin looking young and radiant for years to come.
Preventative skincare involves taking care of your skin before any visible signs of aging or damage appear. It is essential to adopt a skincare routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting the skin from the sun and other harmful elements. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips and products that can help you achieve a preventative skincare routine.
Cleanse Your Skin
The first step in any skincare routine is cleansing. It is essential to remove all the dirt, oil, and makeup from your skin to allow it to breathe and prepare it for other skincare products. Choose a cleanser that is gentle and suits your skin type. For instance, if you have dry skin, go for a creamy cleanser, and if you have oily skin, choose a gel-based cleanser. Cleansing your skin is always the most important step to prevent excess buildup!
Exfoliation is an essential step to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter skin. Regular exfoliation also helps to stimulate cell turnover and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, it is important not to overdo it as over-exfoliation can damage the skin's protective barrier. Choose a gentle exfoliator that contains natural ingredients such as jojoba beads or fruit enzymes. Our Dry Body Scrubs are the perfect choice if you’re new to the body scrub world.

Moisturizing is crucial to maintain the skin's hydration levels and prevent dryness and dullness. Choose a moisturizer that suits your skin type and contains ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or ceramides that help to lock in moisture. The Coconut Oil Moisturizing Cream is an excellent choice for dry skin as it contains nourishing ingredients such as coconut oil, and vitamin E.
Protect from the Sun
Sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature aging, so it is essential to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and apply it every day, even on cloudy days.
Antioxidants are essential to protect the skin from environmental damage and free radicals. They help to neutralize harmful molecules that can cause oxidative stress and damage to the skin. Look for skincare products that contain antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, or green tea. The Retinol Advanced Moisture Cream is an excellent choice as it contains retinol, which is a potent antioxidant that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Get Enough Sleep
Getting enough sleep is crucial for maintaining healthy skin. During sleep, the body repairs and regenerates the skin cells, which is essential for a radiant complexion. Lack of sleep can lead to dark circles, puffiness, and dull skin. Aim to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night, and try to maintain a regular sleep schedule.
