5 Ways to Boost Your Skincare Routine
Take Your Regimen From Drab to Fab With These Skincare Routine Revisions
Feeling like your skincare routine just isn't cutting it anymore? Don't fret. It's normal for your skin to change over time, especially in response to the seasons or signs of aging. What worked before just might not be enough to address all of those changing needs.
Instead of throwing out everything in your medicine cabinet and starting from scratch, you can boost your routine by evaluating what you're doing, what you're missing, and taking it from there. That's why we've assembled this guide to boosting your routine-based tried-and-true approaches to skincare regimens from our team here at MD Glam.
#1 Hydrate Even If You Don't Feel Dry
Ever get that feeling where your skin feels so dry that it's stretching across your face? Too many women wait until this happens to think to moisturize. Keeping your skin adequately hydrated both day and night can be a great way to keep dryness at bay, even if you don't feel super dry.
Keep in mind that your skin can be dry, or starting to dry out before you feel it. That's why having a quality moisturizer that's balanced for all skin types in your regular arsenal is a must-have.
We love to recommend our Hyaluronic Acid Night C-Complex because it’s designed to drench dehydrated or tired skin in all of the moisture, vitamins, and minerals you need to look your best. Not only does it help you look more rejuvenated, but it also improves skin health with Vitamins A, B, C, and E to combat signs of aging.
#2. Exfoliate Regardless of Your Skin Type
It’s a flat-out myth that people with oily or combination skin don’t need to exfoliate their skin. Just because you aren’t feeling dry and flaky doesn’t mean that you can’t benefit from a scrub. The point of exfoliation isn’t just to remove dry and flaky skin to give you a smooth look. It’s to decongest pores, remove excess sebum (which even dry skin types can have!), and remove dead and dull skin cells.
Add a spa-like exfoliating scrub to your skincare routine and start seeing the benefits near immediately. Our Exfoliating Enzyme Scrub doesn’t just get dirt and sebum clear of your pores. It’s infused with healing and hydrating vitamins to help protect the surface of the skin throughout your day. You’ll notice smoother skin after just a few uses.
#3. Protect from the Sun No Matter the Season
Sun protection isn’t just for hot summer days spent at the beach (although that’s one case you should never go without it). Ultraviolet, or UV, rays can penetrate your skin whether it’s sunny or cloudy, whether you’re spending time outside or sitting by a window. All of these rays can damage your skin over time, increasing the signs of aging as well as your risk for skin cancer.
But many women forego sunscreen products because they clog their pores or leave them feeling heavy and greasy. The key is to find a lightweight yet effective solution that you can wear even under your makeup to combat sun damage. MD Glam’s Sunshout Sunscreen is SPF 50 and designed to protect your skin while perfecting the feel of a fast-absorbing formula that is nearly weightless.
#4. Address Skin’s Needs Differently at Night
Your skin is a dynamic part of you that has different needs day and night, just like other systems in your body. So why treat it with the same cleansers and skincare routine when you wake up and before bed? Nighttime is a great time to concentrate on restoring your skin’s moisture and nutrition since the right skincare products can go to work for you while you sleep.
Focus foremost on hydration and look for products that contain the right blend of protective and anti-aging formulas that can refresh your skin overnight. The MD Glam Overnight Beauty Set was put together just for this purpose. With rejuvenating eye serum and a specially designed night complex moisturizer, your skin will thank you for the bevy of antioxidants, vitamins, and skin-smoothing ceramides that will help you wake up feeling refreshed.
#5. Incorporate Antioxidants to Combat Aging
Speaking of antioxidants, let’s take a closer look at why you should boost your skincare routine by including products that contain them. Essentially, antioxidants are ingredients that can combat oxidative damage done to the skin. These are found in everyday encounters like free radicals from the sun and air pollution that can make your skin look and feel worn and older.
Oxidants might be unavoidable in daily life, but adding an antioxidant to your regimen can fight the signs of aging rather effectively. At MD Glam, Dr. Cat has formulated several products that leverage antioxidants to craft a luxury skincare line destined to produce results for anti-aging. Premier in that line is our DMAE Antioxidant Day Moisturizer, which is fortified to counter toxins while increasing skin firmness and hydration.
It makes sense that a skincare routine that works at one point simply won’t stand the test of time as your skin’s needs change. That’s why it can be helpful to reevaluate your skin care regimen regularly and explore what’s working, what’s not, and what’s missing from the equation.
At MD Glam, we’re focused on providing skin care products that produce results for you. Our complete line is designed with all skin types in mind and can help reduce signs of aging through a proven line of hydration, sun protection, serums, and cleansers
