2023 Beginner's Guide to At-Home Skincare (Esthetician-Approved)
Your esthetician loves it when you keep up with your at-home skincare routine in between appointments. Properly caring for your skin at home helps you get the results you desire from the specialty skin treatments you get at a skin spa.
A good home skincare regimen includes the following steps in order: cleanser, exfoliant, toner, serum, concentrate, facial oil, and moisturizer.
Let’s look at the benefits of each step.
At-Home Skincare Steps
Every day, you want to wash your face of makeup and other elements you’ve been exposed to throughout the day. Choose a cleanser that purifies your skin without stripping essential moisture. For example, the Éminence Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser neutralizes bacteria to prevent breakouts, without completely drying out the skin.
We recommend you apply your cleanser in these three simple steps:
1. Massage your cleanser onto your skin for at least 30 to 60 seconds to promote blood circulation and allow time for the product to do its job.
2. Never use hot water to wash your face. Instead, use just-warmed to lukewarm temperature water to avoid drying out or damaging the skin.
3. Gently pat (don’t rub) your skin dry with a towel.
How's your current cleansing process holding up to our tips?
Ready to keep going? Let’s move onto the next step.
Use an exfoliating cleanser for a deeper clean that leaves the skin smooth. You can get rid of surface and subsurface impurities using the Éminence Monoi Age Corrective Exfoliating Cleanser.
A toner acts as a deep-pore cleanse that has a gently tightening effect on your skin. Sorella Apothecary’s Spiced Wine Toner is perfect for normal-to-oily skin that could use some balance and firming throughout the face.
Serums are known to brighten and hydrate skin that’s dull or shows signs of aging. We love the
Éminence Marine Flower Peptide Serum for its ability to nourish wrinkled, dehydrated skin.
Like serums, concentrates are light-weight skin products. You’ll notice that concentrates tend to be creamier than serums, and that’s because they tend to be more heavily packed with nourishing ingredients.
For example, the Sorella Apothecary Yogurt Kale Eye Concentrate gives your under-eye area a natural lift, using superfoods and peptides. It’s a great way to avoid expensive injections that many women opt for these days.
Naturally-sourced oils have magical properties for internal and external use. When used on the face, oils give you a smoother, younger-looking complexion. We recommend the Facial Recovery Oil by Éminence for daily or nightly use.
After you’ve cleansed and nourished your face with healthy ingredients, it’s time to moisturize. Choosing an organic moisturizer with built-in SPF is our top recommendation. When you protect your skin from the sun, you prevent dryness, wrinkles, and broken blood vessels. The Eminence Tropical Vanilla Day Cream SPF 32 protects against both UVA and UVB radiation, while leaving you with the refreshing scents of Linden flower and vanilla.
How’s that for a comprehensive at-home skincare routine? It might seem like a lot. But don’t worry – Peel Simply Skin is here to help.
