What you do for your skin on a daily and weekly basis can have a great impact on the quality, texture and appearance of your skin. With minimal effort you can transform your skin through your skin care routines.
Earlier this week we shared best practices for daily skin care and today we have your weekly skin care routine checklist.
Weekly Skin Care Checklist: What to do for your Skin Every Week
Exfoliate: Daily cleaning can only reach so deep into pores, but exfoliation can loosen and purify further by sloughing off dead skin cells, killing bacteria and detoxifying skin. Exfoliation encourages new, fresher cells to the surface, which brightens your complexion, smoothes fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin tone for an overall younger looking appearance. Our Apricot Exfoliant uses Jojoba and Apricot beads to gently scrub your skin while delivering skin-softening plant sulfurs, antioxidants and essential oils including Moringa oil and Sunflower oil. Exfoliate twice a week for more radiant, invigorated skin.
Deep Cleaning Clay Mask: If you thought you could only get a professional grade mask at the spa, think again. Clay masks are one of the simplest ways to draw out impurities and detoxify skin. Bentonite, Kaolin and Marine clays are among the best deep cleaning agents as the bond with bacteria and other toxins and extract them from your skin. Our Moringa-Infused Deep Cleaning Mask contains these three clays along with plant sulfur, Moringa oil and a range of other phyto-nutrients that replenish skin with nourishment for a soft, clean and glowing look. In just 10 minutes once a week our Moringa-Infused Deep Cleaning Mask allows your skin to drink in nutrients and moisture and stimulates blood flow. Rinse before the mask becomes hard to avoid dryness.
Extreme Moisture: Your Natura Veda Daytime and Night Time Moisturizing Creams go a long way but sometimes our skin needs an extra sip to quench its thirst. This is especially true in extreme weather, such as the bitterly dry winter months or the sunny summer months. Also, activities like flying, drinking alcohol or consuming too much salt dry out our skin. To combat extreme dryness you’ll need an extreme moisturizer like our all natural Botanical Elixir. It contains Moringa Oil and Sacha Inchi Oil, the perfect combination for healing stressed, dry skin due to its high concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids, oleic acids and antioxidants.
Address Skin Issues: On a weekly basis you should evaluate your skin to identify any changes. Look for moles that have changed in size, color or shape and blemishes, dryness or other skin problems that might not notice when you’re rushing through your daily routines. Addressing skin issues early can help resolve them before they exacerbate into larger skin conditions.
Eat Omega-3s: Essential fatty acids like Omega-3s are tremendous assets for your skin and entire body. Omega-3s protect cell membranes that allow healthy nutrients into cells and block harmful substances from entering. Omega-3s also encourage moisture retention for softer, smoother skin. Fish such as tuna and salmon are high in Omega-3 fatty acids as well as nuts like walnuts and oils including canola oil.
Relax: Stress takes a toll on skin just like lack of sleep, sun exposure and poor skin care. Ensure you have time to relax several times a week. Relaxing means different things to different people. Whatever you choose to do to relax, make sure it takes your mind off your daily stressors and calms your body.
