While some of how our skin looks is left to the fate of our genetics, we can also exert some control through our daily and weekly skin care routines. As the most vulnerable outer organ of our bodies, skin should be treated as delicately and carefully as we do our heart, lungs and brain. That means nourishing skin with the best, wholesome ingredients, protecting it from environmental dangers and continuously stimulating fresh and rejuvenated skin from within.
Your daily and weekly skin care routine can reinvigorate your look and even reverse some of the negative effects of aging that tend to settle in on the face. Natura Veda’s daily and weekly skin care routine guide is ideal for all skin types and can help turn dull, sagging skin into vibrant, youthful skin in just a few weeks. Today we’re starting with our daily skin care checklist and later this week we’ll share weekly skin care tips.
Daily Skin Care Checklist: What to do for your Skin Every Day
Cleanse: Cleaning your skin removes dirt, sweat and oil from the surface of your face and clogged in your pores. Our Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser contains nonabrasive all natural anti-microbial ingredients such as coconut oil, plant glycerin and aloe vera to keep skin clean, supple and hydrated. Also remember, never sleep in makeup! A good cleanser should be able to remove your makeup without an added makeup remover but try pure Moringa oil or Olive oil for lingering makeup spots.
Cool Mist: Especially in summer months, a cool mist of nutraceuitcals is just what your face needs to hydrate, refresh and recharge. Our unique Hydrating Mist and Toner can be used several times throughout the day to give your skin a boost of energy.
Moisturize: All living things need water to thrive so if you want your skin to look its best, moisturize your skin every morning and every night. Moisturizing not only hydrates skin cells directly and delivers vital nutrients where it matters most, it also helps protect your skin by supporting cells and forming a barrier against microbes. Our Daily Moisturizing Cream and Night Time Repair Cream are both infused with Moringa for maximum nourishment around the clock. Each contains important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other phyto-nutrients that stimulate cell turnover, regeneration and the production of skin-firming collagen and elastin.
Sun Protection: The sun is the leading cause of premature skin aging, so protecting your skin from the sun is essential. The rules of great skin include sun safety. That means wearing sun screen every time you are in the sun, even if it’s only for a few minutes. Also, wear protective clothing, hats and sunglasses, seek shade whenever possible and try to avoid exposure during peak midday sun hours.
Hydrate: Drinking plenty of water helps flush out skin cells and your entire body. Water makes up 75% of our bodies but constantly needs to be replenished to keep our bodies functioning properly.
Eat Well: A daily diet full of antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables will help keep your skin and whole body looking younger. Antioxidants like Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E found in many berries and cruciferous vegetables are among the best choices for beautiful skin.
Sleep: Even slacking on one night’s sleep can set your skin in a tizzy. Sleep is the time when our entire bodies and skin are restoring, repairing and reenergizing for the next day. Lack of sleep causes dark circles and under eye bags and slows the production of collagen. Also, tired skin cannot retain moisture and nutrients like well-rested skin. Sleep is crucial to your daily beauty routine.
With Natura Veda’s 5-Step Skin Care System you can easily achieve brighter, healthier and more youthful-looking skin from your daily skin care routine. Later this week we’ll be expanding on our checklist to include all the skin care practices you should be doing on a weekly basis.
