Secrets Of Stress-Free Skin Care For Any Style
Low maintenance is your mantra. You’d rather spend another twenty minutes with a cup of tea and your morning read than figure out how many products you’ll need to achieve the perfect contour. We get it.
A few simple skin care steps can make it a lot easier to face the world with minimal to no makeup. To maintain a dare-to-bare complexion, tone and texture are your biggest concerns. That means ingredients to accelerate cell turn over, promote brightness, and boost collagen.

THE SKIN CARE JUNKIE
If you’re out of counter space in your bathroom and you’ve started storing your overflow in the guest bathroom, it might be time to streamline. New products are fun, but to really see results in your skin, you need consistency.
Right now, as the holidays are going full-tilt, it’s the perfect time to pare down and simplify your routine. Pick a few workhorse products and use them religiously for at least a month. No rotation. Then check your results.

It’s a multi-tasker that takes on fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and uneven tone with dramatic results. Commit to this one for at least a month and see firmer, more even, blemish-free, glowing skin. This is your soul-mate serum.
To maximize the effectiveness of your serum, prep skin with this refining and balancing toner. Glycolic acid and witch hazel dissolve oil, slough off dead skin cells, minimize appearance of pores, and restore skin’s natural pH level, while clearing the way for optimum absorption of your corrective serum.
THE SPORTS ENTHUSIAST
Is Dri Fit your de rigueur? Your active lifestyle gives you an advantage in the skin care arena. Exercise is great skin therapy. It improves circulation, boosts collagen production, and increases human growth hormone to help keep skin looking younger and firmer.
However, exercise also means your skin is subject to clogged pores from sweat, oil, and sunscreen. Cleansing and toning after workouts is crucial to avoiding acne-causing buildup and bacteria.

THE FREQUENT TRAVELER
Is your idea of the perfect weekend scoring a last-minute deal on a flight to anywhere? Are you on a first name basis with the concierge staff in several major cities? Your biggest issue is protecting your skin barrier.
Sleep disruption, dehydration from air travel, inconsistency in diet, too much alcohol, stress of travel, changes in environment—all the typical travel can undermine skin health by causing irritation, dehydration, and inflammation.
Look for products that nourish and hydrate. Ingredients like niacinamide, grape seed and rosehip oils (rich in omega 6 fatty acids), lactic acid, honey. Avoid the hotel products, which can often be harsh and disrupt your skin’s pH balance.
