Your Skin Care Matters

Your skin care matters for optimal results

The ultimate goal for most women and men is to maintain a youthful, glowing, healthy appearance and slow down the aging process.

That begins with a good skincare routine and quality skin care products.

Secret Faces provides two excellent product lines for all skin types.

Alastin Skincare offers cruelty, paraben and gluten-free solutions that promote fortified, healthy skin. You can look refreshed and are free to feel fabulous, unfiltered and confident. They are engineered to specifically work with the skin to clear out old collagen and elastin proteins damaged by sun exposure and aging while supporting the skin's natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin.

Keep it simple: cleanser, moisturizer, sunblock.

Whether you do a 3-step morning routine or have time for a 10-step nighttime routine, the order you apply your products matters.

Step 1: Cleanser

In the morning and evening, cleanse your face with a cleanser that best suits your skin type before applying your skincare products. Clean skin is essential for ingredients to absorb correctly.

Step 2: Toner

Toners have soothing, moisturizing components that soothe dry skin or exfoliants to help with acne and pimples. Toners are optional. They prime your face for other components to absorb later. Alcohol-based toners leave you stinging and are incredibly harmful. A toner containing BHA (beta hydroxy acid, such as salicylic acid) or AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) will unclog pores, slow breakouts, and over time, remove blackheads. Try AHAs for dry skin; if you have oily skin, stick to BHAs.

Step 3: Serums

Use morning and evening. Serums are concentrated doses of nutrients, hydration, and antioxidants that improve the health of your skin. They are an essential part of your skincare routine.

Vitamin C serum in your A.M. skincare routine will protect your skin from irritation and environmental harm throughout the day while brightening skin and lightening dark patches. For your P.M. skincare regimen, choose a serum containing hyaluronic acid, which draws water from the atmosphere into your skin to relax and keep it hydrated while you sleep.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant for the skin

Step 4: Eye Cream

Because eye creams are lighter and thinner than face moisturizers, use them first before applying creams and oils in the morning and evening. Since your under-eye region is the most delicate area, be sure to dab your under-eye cream gently.

Step 5: Spot Treatment

Applying spot treatments, whether for zits, scars, etc., at night is ideal because that’s when your body thoroughly restores itself. If you use acne-fighting toner and want retinol, consider spot-treating in the morning instead to avoid irritating your face with too much at once.

Step 6: Moisturizer

Moisturizer should be applied morning and night in your skincare routine. Whether your skin is oily or prone to breakouts, it’s the only thing that’ll maintain your skin barrier—making your face seem like it has a healthy and happy glow.

Get a formula with sunscreen of at least SPF 30 for your morning routine.

Your skin enters repair mode at night to heal damage and enhance regeneration. So, your night moisturizer should contain hyaluronic acid, lipids, and proteins.

Step 7: Retinol in the evening

Retinoids penetrate your skin to speed up cell turnover, helping your body produce fresher, smoother, less wrinkled skin over time. Because retinoids stimulate collagen formation and cellular exfoliation, they will also remove dark spots, and smooth scars, cleanse pores, reduce breakouts, and brighten skin. If you’re currently using a retinoid night cream, skip this step, as it may exacerbate irritation.

Step 8: Face Oil

Face oils work to seal in all of the ingredients and moisture you just applied to your face, preventing them from evaporating as rapidly. Fats do not hydrate your skin effectively, but when you layer them over products, they can boost your routine efficiency while leaving skin soft and smooth.

Step 9: Sunscreen

Sunscreen should come last in your skincare routine to protect your face and function as armour against the outside world.

For July, Secret Faces has a promotion on Alastin Hydratint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36

Always use sunscreen to protect your skin

If you are still deciding what to use for your type of skin or condition, a consultation with Darlene will be beneficial in deciding the best routine and product line for your skin.
