5 Skincare Rules to Follow


If you hear the word “peel” and cringe, it’s time to change your mindset.

As we age, our cell renewal decreases by half. If you want to have fresh, healthy, vibrant-looking skin, you have to force the cells to turn over more frequently to reveal a healthy glow.


Always wear a broadband SPF 30 or 50 and layer it with an antioxidant for added protection.

Be diligent when applying- UV rays can cause damage even on cloudy days. On sunnier days, you should reapply SPF every two to three hours for maximum protection.


When a pimple pops up or stress strikes, you might be tempted to pick at your face- but don’t!

A blemish usually lasts five to seven days, but the red or dark pigment from picking at the blemish can linger for weeks, or even months.

As tempting as picking can be, it’s not worth it. Instead, apply a spot treatment to help speed up the recovery time and leave it alone.


There’s no use investing in expensive skincare products if you aren’t applying them in the right order.

Always apply serums first, before moisturizer, because serums are more targeted and have a higher concentration of active ingredients. A serum is like a single vitamin, while a moisturizer is more like a multivitamin. In general, you should always apply products from lightest to heaviest.


Retinol-we hear the word constantly and by now all know it’s the main ingredient we should look for if we want clear, healthy skin.

With regular use, pores appear smaller, brown spots can lessen, and fine lines and wrinkles are softened.  Always use a retinol at night. It’s key for collagen production and cell turnover. It’s a must in every skincare regimen.
