Facial Oils and Serums Will Change How You Customize Your Skin Care Routine Forever
In the past, skin care routines were pretty generic—wash, tone, moisturize, repeat—but these routines didn’t meet everyone’s specific skin care needs. Each and every one of us has naturally unique skin, which is why we all have different requirements for our skin care routines. Fortunately, Artnaturals and Target have released a new line of facial oils and serums that help you build a customized routine that’s perfect for what your skin needs in order to look and feel its best.
If you’ve never used an Artnaturals facial serum before, you’re in for a very enjoyable experience. These serums sink deeply into skin to deliver natural ingredients that provide your skin with what it craves, while simultaneously boosting the effectiveness of your other skin care products, as well. It’s a win, win situation for your skin.
Customized Routine for Dry Skin
One of the biggest reported skin care issues is having overly dry skin. Our skin naturally produces a substance called sebum. When your skin produces too much sebum, it can become oily, which can cause breakouts and blemishes. When your skin isn’t producing enough sebum, it can become dry. Typically, dry skin feels more sensitive and can have the appearance of redness or skin irritation. It also causes premature signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles to develop more quickly. Nobody wants that!
So, what causes dry skin? It’s different for everyone, but some of the main contributors are things like, cold weather conditions, dry climate, exposure to skin care products that use harsh chemicals, washing skin too often and aggressively, and spending too much time in the sun. In order to combat dry skin, you need to develop a cleansing and moisturizing routine that works best for you. It is highly recommended that you create a skin care regimen for your morning routine and your nightly routine to get the best results.
During the morning—after you’ve worked out, caffeinated, and had breakfast, of course—use a gentle facial soap during your shower. Once your shower is finished, gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel, then tone your skin using a gentle, natural toner, like the Artnaturals Rose Water Toner available at Target.
After toning, it’s time to customize your next steps with an Artnaturals facial oil and serum. If you have dry skin, consider using Artnaturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which you can find online or at your local Target store. This serum contains tons of hyaluronic acid, which deeply hydrates and plumps skin, while helping to retain moisture, as well. Gently pat it into your skin moving from your neck upwards and let it sink in for a minute or two. Follow with your eye cream and then daily moisturizer (preferable with an SPF).
You know what they say, night time is the right time. At night, your skin helps repair and rejuvenate itself, so you’ll want to give it extra ingredients to boost its recovery. Just before bed, use a gentle facial cleanser, and your toner, then customize your Artnaturals serum experience to help hydrate and moisturize your dry skin. After toning, you can do one of two things, depending on how dry your skin feels. Your first option, if your skin is feeling only somewhat dry is to apply the Artnaturals Squalane Oil Serum. Squalane is an organic, vegan ingredient that helps soothe stressed skin, while providing nourishment and tons of antioxidants. If your skin is feeling extra dry, use the Hyaluronic Acid Serum from Artnaturals first, then apply the Squalane Oil Serum next. Let the serums soak in for a few minutes before following with your eye cream and nightly moisturizer.
No matter what age you are, you’re likely concerned about aging. As we grow older, our skin tends to lose its youthful elasticity due to a breakdown in collagen production. This is what causes crow’s feet around the eye area, as well as fine lines, wrinkles, and marionette lines around your mouth. Fortunately, there are things that you can do at any age to help combat the signs of aging, like develop a customized anti-aging skin care regimen.
In the morning, use a daily gentle cleanser without harsh chemicals in it. You should also consider swapping out your morning cleanser with a gently exfoliating cleanser a few times a week to help with cellular turnover, in other words, getting rid of the dry skin that can cause clogged pores. After cleansing, pat your skin dry and use a toner.
Next it’s time to moisturize. One of the things that causes premature aging is dry skin, so you’ll want to add serums into your routine that provide deep hydration and help boost your collagen levels. To keep your skin looking plump and youthful, use the Artnaturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Pat it into your skin gently and wait for a few minutes for it to sink in. Once your skin has absorbed the first serum, use the Artnaturals Collagen Boost Serum. This serum was tailor-made for those with aging concerns. It features a vegan collagen formula that helps increase collagen production, which improves elasticity for a more youthful appearance. Once your second serum has absorbed into your skin, follow up with an eye cream and your daily moisturizer. If you’re concerned about aging, definitely find a daily moisturizer with an SPF. It doesn’t matter what season you’re in, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun, whether it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter.
As you may recall from above, your skin renews and rejuvenates itself while you sleep, so it’s important to nourish it with the right ingredients before you go to bed. In the evening, cleanse with your gentle facial cleanser, tone, and pat your face dry. It’s important to make sure that your skin is clean and dry before using your Artnaturals Retinol Serum, which is also available online or at your local Target.
Retinol is one of the single-most beneficial skin care ingredients when it comes to anti-aging concerns. Not only does it help remove dead layers of skin that clog pores and cause wrinkles, it also helps your other skin care products work more effectively. Along with retinol, the Artnaturals Retinol Serum also features a blend of all-natural ingredients that help combat signs of aging, like vitamin C, aloe vera, jojoba oil, and a vegan hyaluronic acid. Together, these ingredients contain tons of antioxidants that help fight free radicals and prevent the appearance of wrinkles for unmatched results.
After using this serum, follow with your eye cream and a light, nightly moisturizer for best anti-aging results.
Customized Routine to Help Brighten Skin
The appearance of dull skin is a huge skin concern for many of us, because it lacks radiance. Basically, dull skin is the opposite of the glowing, gorgeous skin that we all want. It’s often hard to know how to achieve healthier, more radiant looking skin, which is where a brightening skin care routine with the right serums can help.
In the morning, use a gentle cleanser, then pat your skin dry and use your favorite toner. Once your skin is clean and dry, use Artnaturals Glycolic Acid Serum. Glycolic acid is a natural exfoliator that helps boost skin circulation, slough off dead skin cells, and reveals more radiant looking skin underneath. It also helps smooth the texture of your skin for an all-around glow. After your skin has absorbed the Glycolic Acid Serum, it’s time to double down on your brighter look with Artnaturals Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C is single handedly one of the best ingredients for brightening skin. Not only does it help even skin tone and enhance radiance, but it also helps diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines and has been known to protect skin from free radical damage caused by UV exposure. It’s definitely a powerhouse for your pores. After applying your second serum, gently pat your eye cream in and follow up with your daily SPF moisturizer.
In the evening, give your skin a brightening boost with Artnaturals Lactic Acid + AHA Serum. This power packed brightening serum is full of natural AHAs from fruit extracts that help resurface and renew your skin’s texture and tone overnight, while also helping to reduce pigmentation and reveal a brighter and more even complexion when you wake up in the morning. As usual, let is sink in after you’ve gently cleansed and toned your skin. Then follow it up with your eye cream and nightly moisturizer.
Dry skin, anti-aging, and brightening are just three of many skin care issues and concerns we have. If you have more specific issues with your skin, it’s easy to customize a routine that addresses them with uniquely beneficial facial serums and oils from Artnaturals. Mix and match them to create the perfect routine for you, then enjoy the results.
