2023 is going to be an excellent year for skincare! We have come a long way since June 2018 and have an exciting future in creating additional products. Remember, at any given time, you can provide a lot to look forward to by making a few simple adjustments or additions to your skincare routine. We know what you're probably thinking. Every year it never fails, the latest discovery of new skincare ingredients, skincare technologies, and advancements in skin care; there are always trial and error habits that make a dramatic difference in how your skin looks and feels.
We are here to assist you with keeping up with the latest skincare trends like 'Gentle skin cycling,' which involves laying a soothing, nourishing moisturizer on top of your exfoliating serum or retinol. This trend is supposed to help rebalance your skin microbiome and repair your skin barrier based on your skin's needs and goals. However, we must rewind and reminisce in 2022 a bit.
If you are on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, or any social media platforms and following skin care pages, you see skincare terms like "Skin Flooding," "Moisture Sandwiching," and "Slugging."
Which is Vaseline over serums and creams to lock in hydration. This is nothing new! It's skincare 101, and this concept was taught in predominantly African American households by great-grandmothers, grandmothers, great-aunts, aunts, cousins, and sisters, but it was called 'greasing up.' In the southern states of America, African American children were greased down before they went to school and stayed moisturized all day. Imagine being five years old and getting ready for kindergarten, and your mother, grandmother, big sister, or aunt is smearing Vaseline all over your face before school. This was normal, a way of life, and very much part of the ritual of getting dressed. Generations of black women have been utilizing that skin care treatment for years before it was repackaged and went viral in 2022. What an exciting time we are in today; however, we can’t wait to see what skincare trends will go viral this year! Below we have some recommendations.
1. MOISTURIZE DAILY
We highly recommend Up Close hydrating Body moisturizer. It restores moisture and protects and nourishes without greasiness, leaving skin smooth. We have witnessed how daily moisturizing helps prolong wrinkles' appearance, making existing wrinkles look less noticeable and helping to soothe skin that intense treatments and powerful ingredients have aggravated. Our body moisturizer doesn’t feel heavy or greasy, but it is thick and will last all day during the hot summers and cold winter months.
2. EAT HEALTHIER
A person who eats a healthier diet of vitamins and minerals filled with whole foods will usually have more flawless skin than those who don'tdoesn'twrinkles'can't. No, we are not picking. Most people are guilty of not eating perfectly healthy all the time; consider taking collagen and hyaluronic acid supplements, in addition to vitamins and all-important antioxidants, to give skin a considerable boost like Vital Proteins. These supplements, combined with the proper skincare treatment, will assist your skin to look like you've been hereditarily blessed. Vital Proteins are a great introduction to the world of skin supplements if you haven't already tried some. This product contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and other vitamins to improve skin hydration and promote a healthy-looking complexion. Besides, Vital Proteins is good enough for the ageless Jennifer Aniston, who looks flawless with or without makeup. In that case, it's safe to say it might be a good idea to incorporate it into your daily routine by adding it to your coffee or smoothie to improve the health of your skin.
3. EXFOLIATE EVERY WEEK
This coming year, we challenge you to remove all the surface skin cells that cause a lackluster complexion through physical exfoliation. You will see a huge difference. Skin cell turnover is a repetitive process that happens approximately every 28 days. A rejuvenation cycle is essential for an even, impeccable glowing complexion; the rejuvenation process slows down with age. Therefore, exfoliation is necessary and imperative that it's practiced weekly. We can't help but to think of Grammy award-winning producer Pharrell! He has said something along the lines of previous interviews: his secret to having youthful-looking skin is that he exfoliates like a madman! However, we do not and would never recommend that anyone over-exfoliate because that can cause skin irritation. This could lead you to have more skin issues like redness and inflamed skin, making your skin become dry and flaky. An open invitation to having uneven tones like patchy, red scars or even breakouts! So, you must be gentle and stop at any signs of skin irritation. Our Body Scrub Clean Slate specifically will nourish and moisturize your skin with exotic oils and vitamin E.
4. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR EYES
A lifetime of neglecting and abusing the eye area with unnecessary squinting would be a skincare crime! The skin around your eye area generates less natural oil, but it's also thinner than the rest of your face, so it's more likely to develop those pesky crow's feet and fine lines along the under-eye area everyone hates. In our opinion, fine lines around the eyes ages a person faster than wrinkles in other areas like the forehead or along the mouth. It's in your best interest to take great care of the eyes, although they often go neglected. A good eye cream can make all the difference in your skincare collection. Our eye cream, Revive revitalizing, is excellent for hydration but helps calm and reduce puffiness for a more alert look. We can assure you that consistent use of effective eye cream will help restore youthfulness in the eye area while also helping to prevent the appearance of more wrinkles by plumping up the skin and strengthening its overall. Let's make 2023 the year you start to use an effective eye cream day and night routinely!
