We’re more than seven months into the year, and so far, the best anti-aging trend of 2017 has been skin protection and prevention. You may think that younger-looking skin comes at an astronomical cost but it’s much more simple than that: aging gracefully simply requires sticking to a healthy lifestyle and finding the right skin care product for your face. That’s one giant leap in the right direction towards flawless skin at any age! Let’s consider this: if protection and prevention are on trend, what are we supposed to DO and NOT do when it comes to our skincare regimen?
DO Stay on Trend with These Tips for Healthy, Youthful-looking Skin:
- Protection: Protect your skin against environmental factors and stressors such as excessive sun exposure, smoke, and pollution, as these can cause irreparable damage to your face, neck, and body, resulting in an appearance that looks dull and damaged beyond your years.
- Prevention: Drink plenty of water, follow a nutritional and balanced diet, try a variety of fitness routines (e.g., body weight training – so much fun!), and always apply sunscreen before taking on the day. You’ve got this!
Sometimes, you may not even know that your lifestyle and habits are causing damage to your skin, and the repercussions of your style of living are only visible years later. What then? Well, good news:, it’s never too late to STOP doing what’s harmful to your skin and to START doing what’s healthy.
More than anything else, Nerium cares about the condition of your skin, body, and mind. That’s what we do. For this reason, we would like to also share a few skin care DON’TS to help prevent damage to your face, and a few extra tips to help with the rest of you.
Don’t. Do. This.
- Don’t overlook the importance of double cleansing your face at night: If you wear foundation, long-lasting makeup, or daily sunscreen, Dr. Rabia Malik recommends double cleansing your face and neck because these types of products are especially difficult to remove. Consider how much dirt, oil, makeup and other impurities from smoke and pollutants come off on your facial cloth just with a one-step cleansing routine. Adding one more step to your routine allows for a much deeper clean to wash away most of the daily grime! Who wouldn’t want clear, clean, and beautiful-looking skin? Well, luckily for you, Nerium’s new Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash is sure to remove oil-based impurities and makeup when applied to dry skin. Then, after adding water, Face Wash transforms into a soft, milky lather for deep-down, yet gentle, cleansing. Now, you can easily remove non-waterproof makeup and all the day’s dirt with Nerium’s Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash. It’s by far the freshest way to start and end your day!
- Don’t moisturize too much or too little: Moisturizing your skin too much can lead to shiny, greasy skin while moisturizing not enough will leave your skin feeling tight, flaky, and looking dull. While Nerium Age-Defying Night Cream works to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and enlarged pores, our Age-Defying Day Cream delivers all the moisture and hydration your skin needs.
- Don’t forget to use eye serum: Why use Nerium Age-Defying Eye Serum instead of an eye cream? Glad you asked! Serums are “fluid and lighter than an eye cream,” according to The Dermatology Review, and also tend to absorb more easily into the skin not leaving a greasy residue. Nerium Age-Defying Eye Serum addresses the signs of emerging fine lines and crow’s feet around your eye — all at the same time! BONUS TIP: Compliment Eye Serum with Nerium Eye-V™ Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches! Our innovative patches deliver targeted hydration to the delicate skin around your eyes for the appearance of an instant and refreshing “eye lift”.
- Don’t dismiss dull-looking skin: Your lifestyle impacts the appearance of your skin. Fortunately, many issues can be resolved by getting plenty of rest, drinking enough water, and regularly getting exercise. Still, at times, you may feel and look like you need a bit of a boost. IllumaBoostTM Brightening & Shield is Nerium’s latest innovative product — a skin booster that should be added to your daily skin care regimen to help brighten, hydrate and guard your face against environmental stressors. Simply mix a couple of pumps with your Night or Day Cream, foundation or sunscreen for a quick boost of skin-benefiting ingredients. You can also apply it directly to your skin. It’s that easy!
- Don’t forget the rest of your body: Nerium customers and fans have come to expect more from Nerium than just skincare products. Our comprehensive approach to anti-aging transforms how you look on the outside and feel on the inside. For those who need a little more help on the outside, Nerium offers Firming Body Contour Cream – a Nerium’s breakthrough formula targeting problem areas for a sleeker, more youthful-looking body.
