Around The Pipe Line, we believe beauty is more than skin-deep, but that doesn’t change the fact that taking care of our skin is really important.
But sometimes when navigating the overly crowded aisles of beauty products
with a different trendy product on the market all the time, it can be overwhelming and difficult to figure out what you really need.
Different experts will boast about different skincare regimens, some of which have so many steps that it’s exhausting to read about, let alone do every morning when you’ve got to get out the door to start your day or are too tired before bed to put up with all of the fuss. But with some basic skincare products, you can create a simple and effective regimen to keep your skin healthy and looking great.
A gentle cleanser is a great way to wake up your skin in the morning and it is essential in the evening for ridding your skin of dirt, impurities, and makeup.
Serums nourish the skin with moisture, antioxidants, and soothing compounds. They don’t leave a greasy residue on the skin but are great for supporting supple and hydrated skin. Apply serum in the morning after cleansing and again in the evening before bed, when your skin can readily absorb the nourishing benefits of the serum.
Eye creams nourish and hydrate the delicate skin under the eyes while also helping to reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles. Gently apply eye creams under the eye after serum use morning and night.
Creams provide a number of beneficial compounds to the skin that helps promote nourished and hydrated skin and help to seal moisture. Apply your specific cream after applying an eye cream both morning and night. It’s important to use the serum, eye cream, and nourishing cream in that order.
Sunscreen is extremely important every day, even when there’s cloud coverage and outside of those sunny summer months. Protecting your skin from the sun can help keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. Apply sunscreen after your nourishing cream every day in the morning.
Scrub, Peel and/or Face Mask:
It is important to cleanse deeply and exfoliate. You can do this using a scrub, peel, mask, or some combination of the three depending on your preference. We don’t recommend doing this every day, instead use one of these once or twice a week after cleansing in the evening, before applying your serums and creams.
