Don't have any real issues? Not acne-prone? Not oily? No discoloration? No dryness? No lines? First, lucky you! Second, let's keep it that way. What is the best regimen for skin that seems to need no regimen? Two words: maintenance and prevention.

 

The problem with being blessed with great skin is it can cause you to ignore fundamental skin care needs, thus increasing issues down the line.

Every day your skin is being assaulted by things like pollutants, UV radiation, inflammation, or hormones. The effects of these things may not show up for years, but what you do today to protect your skin will have a profound impact on how those factors play out.

 

A healthy skin care routine for normal skin should include the four necessary steps: cleanser, toner, serum, and sunscreen. You’re looking for nourishing ingredients to maintain a healthy skin barrier, gentle acids to exfoliate, and antioxidants to protect against damage. SPF is part of every skin care routine because photodamage from UV exposure is the biggest contributor to visible signs of aging, and a catalyst for skin cancer.

 

 

Our Normal Recommendations 

Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser

This gentle cleanser harnesses the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory strength of green tea extract and boosts it with nourishing grape seed and kiwi extracts to protect against free radical damage, promote cell renewal, and maintain healthy collagen formation.

Bonus: this versatile multi-tasker works equally well as a body wash, shaving gel, or shampoo.

 

 

Skin Nourishing Toner

An ultra-nourishing, ultra-refining and clarifying tonic loaded with antioxidant, hydrating, and cell-renewing ingredients protect against environmental stressors and signs of aging.  

 

 

Spin Trap Antioxidant Serum

Vitamins C & E, plus barrier-strengthening and melanin-suppressing niacinamide provide the ultimate protection against UV damage while neutralizing free radicals, brightening tone, and aiding in the synthesis of collagen.

 

 

Day Treatment Lotion SPF 15

A lightweight, non-greasy, and non-comedogenic foundational moisturizer with broad-spectrum UV protection. Can be used under make-up, alone, or mixed it with mineral powder to create a sheer foundation. 

 

 

Since collagen production begins decreasing by your thirtieth birthday, a retinol/peptide serum is an excellent way to slow that process and keep your skin’s collagen production pumping.

 

No matter what your skin type, the eye area always needs special attention. The skin there is thinner and more vulnerable to damage from both environment (UV, pollutants) and lifestyle factors (diet, sleep, smoking). Vivant’s Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream combines Vitamin A, oligopeptides, and caffeine in a high-performance, lightweight formula to keep skin looking firm and bright.

 

 

Normal skin doesn’t mean impermeable skin. Even the most perfect skin will eventually begin to show the cumulative effects of sun exposure, lifestyle choices, age, and changing hormones. It’s always easier to prevent rather than treat problems. So don’t wait for skin care issues to show up to start thinking about skin care. The products above, used in a consistent regimen will help push off problems and keep your normal skin normal.
