Everyone’s skin is unique and different, but one thing that many of us have in common is wanting smoother, softer skin.
While some skincare routines may seem overwhelming with countless products and steps to achieve the skin you’d like, there are ways you can put just a few minutes of effort in daily towards your self-care routine for radiant skin.
Below are some tips for a smooth skincare routine that can fit into your regular schedule (especially with time blocking). Get spring and summer skin ready after a dry winter to feel great about the skin you’re in!
You’re probably already aware of the importance of hydration, but did you know that staying adequately hydrated is also beneficial for your skin? Healthy, hydrated skin can help your skin look and feel smooth, soft, and moisturized.
Your body is made up of about 70% water, and it’s estimated that skin contains over 60% water! Did you also know that your skin is your body’s largest organ? Like the rest of your body, skin cells also rely on water to function properly. That’s why it’s important to ensure you’re getting enough H20 daily to stay properly hydrated for smooth skin and your overall health.
Regularly washing the skin all over your body and face is an important part of having smooth skin. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends washing your face with a gentle, alcohol-free, non-abrasive cleanser no more than twice a day and after sweating.
Cleansing will help to remove buildup on your skin from the day, like sweat, dirt, and any cosmetics you may wear. Find a skin cleanser that is right for you, your skin concerns, and goals.
After cleansing, regular exfoliation is important to help remove accumulated dead skin cells that build up on the skin. Exfoliating helps to remove even more dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and other buildup from your skin.
A mild, gentle exfoliation should be enough to get rid of dry skin — aggressive exfoliation isn’t necessary to lift those dead skin cells and flakey parts of the skin. And, in addition to exfoliating moist skin, many people also like to dry brush their skin regularly. Dry brushing provides a relaxing daily massage as well as a way to exfoliate rough or dry skin and unclog pores in the exfoliation process.
If you’d like to exfoliate, MaryRuth’s has two exfoliating products to help your skin feel polished and smooth.
First, our Microdermabrasion Scrub is a simple at-home microdermabrasion treatment formulated to easily remove old layers of skin. This formula is unscented, non-toxic & free of microbeads. Pamper yourself in the comfort of your own home with this exfoliating scrub!
Once your face is exfoliated, you’ll want to exfoliate your body, too — and that’s where our Hand & Body Scrub comes in. This hydrating and luxurious unscented sugar exfoliant scrub has vitamins A, D, & E and MSM to exfoliate and replenish your hands and body.
Once your skin is cleansed and exfoliated, it’s time to moisturize! Properly moisturizing will help your skin stay glowing and smooth. To help hydrate and nourish your skin, try some of MaryRuth’s face and body products.
Our Hydrating Hand Cream is formulated to heal dry, damaged, chapped hands, making your hands silky smooth. This fast-absorbing cream is non-toxic & fragrance-free, gentle enough for sensitive skin!
To support hydration on your face, we have a non-toxic Vitamin Eye Cream that combines numerous botanicals, plant oils, and vitamins. Formulated with matrixyl 3000 and tripeptide-5, this eye cream also has sea fennel extract & fruit-based glycolic acid for refreshing and glowing skin.
For areas that may need extra moisture like hands, heels, cuticles, or anywhere else you need extra hydration, our Moisturizing Oil can help! This is an organic blend of four of nature’s most revitalizing oils: coconut oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, and olive oil.
Creating a consistent skincare routine is one of the most important ways to achieve the glowing, smooth skin of your dreams. As MaryRuth says, structure creates freedom, and finding a way to put some structure around your smooth skin routine should help you stay constant to support your skin health.
