Consistency Is Key: The Importance of Skin Care Routine
MD Glam’s very own Dr. Cat reveals why a skin care routine is so important to your overall health and appearance.
When it comes to skin care, consistency is key. I never skip a day cleansing my skin and applying my night moisturizer. I never skip a day applying my day moisturizer and sunscreen, and I exfoliate consistently twice a week with my scrub. Just like you brush your teeth every day or take a shower, caring for your skin with consistent maintenance is just as important!
I firmly believe that it’s critical to have a solid skin care routine for a number of reasons, most important being to combat the signs of aging. Here, I’m going to dig deeper into why a proper routine is so critical for your skin’s health and appearance and how you can get started with the MD Glam system, specifically designed with the ultimate routine in mind.
The Importance of a Skin Care Routine for Ageless Beauty
We all want to look and feel younger even as we age. And taking proper care of our skin is a straightforward way to achieve this. As we get older, we regenerate new skin cells more slowly. Without regular cleansing and care, these cells can take longer to reach the surface and can be bogged down under older dead skin cells that linger on your face. Removing these with regularity can promote regeneration of the skin, which in turn makes you look and feel younger and fresher.
Here are some of the other benefits I see to having a regular skin care routine:
- Prevent issues such as breakouts or signs of aging at bay with regular care
- Keep skin healthier longer with regular nourishment with powerful ingredients
- Boost your confidence by addressing problem areas like under eye circles and dark spots
- Create a younger looking appearance by combating the signs of aging
How to Start Your Very Own Skin Care Routine
Ready to create your own skincare routine but aren’t sure where to start? That is why I have created a complete and easy to follow essentials kit that every woman can use. There is a DAY and NIGHT moisturizer, daily cleanser, and scrub for extra exfoliation. I also know that if products are sticky, greasy, or smelly, it’s hard to force yourself to use them. That is why MD GLAM products absorb quickly, are non-greasy, smell fresh, and feel amazing! You will look forward to applying them and really feel like you are pampering yourself.
Let’s take a closer look together at the different steps in a positive and effective skin care routine and how you can use MD Glam to achieve your goals.
This is where it all begins. You’ll want to wash your face with a proper cleanser day and night to ensure that you are keeping up with rinsing away the dead skin cells that build up throughout the day and overnight.
Look for a cleanser that does more than remove dirt and grime. This is great opportunity to refresh your skin with vital vitamins and minerals that can further help combat the signs of aging. My Deep Pore Foaming Cleanser is a great example of this because it purifies your pores while also delivering Vitamins A, B, C, and E to help with everything from boosting collagen to hydrating the skin.
You don’t have to do this every single day, but exfoliating with regularity can help expedite the turn over of dead skin cells and encourage the skin to produce new, more vibrant cells in their place. Exfoliating can also help even your skin tone, improve circulation in the skin, and unclog pores to prevent or address breakouts.
Make sure that the exfoliant you use is not too rough on your skin. You want it to gently scrub away dirt and grease without scratching or damaging the surface it’s working on. The MD Glam Exfoliating Enzyme Scrub was specifically formulated with a gentle physical exfoliant while including key ingredients for nourishing the skin including glycolic acid, fruit enzymes, and a bevy of vitamins.
Hydrating your skin is one of the most powerful steps you can take for making it look and feel younger. Aging skin tends to be drier and tighter, and adding essential moisture from the outside can help slow the signs of aging quicker than you might imagine. Hydration plumps the skin and can even promote the production of natural collagen when formulated with the right ingredients.
My Timeless Hydrating Set is perfect for getting started with a regular skin care routine because it includes moisturizers for both day and night. The MD Glam DMAE Antioxidant Day Moisturizer is designed to deliver hydration without being too heavy that you can’t use it under makeup. And my Hyaluronic Acid Night C-Complex was specially created to combat aging while you sleep with ingredients that hydrate and heal.
Too many people overlook sun protection when considering their skin care routine. However, incorporating a daily sunscreen into your regimen is a great way to combat and prevent signs of aging. The sun’s rays can wreak havoc on our skin, from creating dark spots to drying it out to enhancing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Protect the skin you’re in with my lightweight, non-greasy, and fast absorbing Sunshout Sunscreen SPF 50. It’s an essential part of my own routine regardless of whether I’m headed to the office or the beach.
Getting Going with a Skin Care Routine from MD Glam
Some of you have asked me if I use my own MD GLAM skincare line. Of course!! That’s primarily why I created it. I was tired of trying different products that didn’t work or that I didn’t like. Also, patients and friends always asked me what products they should use and I could never recommend anything because I needed to believe in them 100% and know that they were effective.
Since I am a scientist with a background in molecular biology, I care about the actual scientific data. I always wanted to know the exact ingredients since little details like the pH, ingredients stability, chemical formula, and ingredient particle size matter. I’m sure by know you know how picky I am about all the details!
Everything you need to get started with a consistent skin care routine of your own is included in the Full MD Glam Collection, packaged especially to help individuals get started on the path to feeling and looking younger by improving the health of their skin.
I’m absolutely obsessed and in love with my products, and I want to thank all of you who have expressed the same enthusiasm in your reviews and positive feedback! – Dr. Cat
