From resolving acne to improving skin texture and tackling wrinkles, there may be factors you have not considered into your skin care goals for 2021. Here are three things to keep in mind when planning for your best year of skin care yet.
Layer on a new skin care step
While you may not need to go the full-on multi-step Korean skin care routine, you also don’t need to limit yourself to a skinimalist route either. Even adding one or two products as part of your self-care ritual can go a long way.
If you’re going to add only one more step to your routine, this Cooling Hydrating Jelly is the thing. Developed in Korea, a leader in modern skin care science, this jelly not only feels refreshing on your skin, it helps you maintain its hydration. It’s light and won’t leave your face feeling greasy.
Try: Silk’n Titan
It’s when our collagen breaks down that our skin develops fine lines and droopiness. The Titan offers “a workout” for our skin to help it retain its integrity and elasticity and to help rebuild that collagen that’s so critical to keeping skin youthful. You can add it to your regular skin care routine or as part of your makeup prep.
Discover natural ingredients
As you expand your ingredient knowledge, you may become more discerning with what products you choose to bring on as part of your revamped skin care routine. One key factor to look for are feel-good natural ingredients (think chamomile, or shea butter).
One of the skin care products that will leave you feeling good about your choice, as much for the ingredients as for its effectiveness, is Origins PLANTSCRIPTION™ Multi-Powered Youth Serum. A Slice staff favourite, this potent serum is packed full of powerful peptides and Anogeissus (a type of birch native to the African continent) to help minimize lines and to firm skin.
Completely natural and plant-based, ZERO by Skin Academy offers a nourishing, botanical night cream that helps to rejuvenate your skin all while you sleep. Packing naturally-healing shea butter and regenerating green tea extract, this combo helps soothe and restore skin for that well-rested morning glow.
Make time for self-care rituals
We know making time for self-care is often easier said than done, but penciling this in as you might any other important meeting or part of your day may help you commit this time to your routine. Doing simple things such as looking after your overall health and appearance can not only make you look good but feel good too. And that self-care need not be complicated either. Here are some simple ways you can devote some me-time for your overall wellness.
As we get busy, we may not notice all the gunk that can accumulate on our skin. Bioré’s Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips can remove a week’s worth of pore gunk in one easy step. The strips include natural charcoal, helping remove any blackhead-breeding impurities and leaving your skin feeling refreshed and less oily.
As our skin reacts to both external and internal stressors, the Versed Just Breathe Clarifying Serum can help restore clear and balanced skin by soothing breakouts and decongesting our pores. This water-gel serum incorporates willow bark extract, niacinamide and zinc to get the job done, helping you feel your best and ready to take on the week.
