The Beginners Guide to Skin Care

Ready to start taking your skin care seriously and invest in your skin for the long term? Here are some easy tips to get you started!

1. Optimise for your skin concerns
When you are ready to level up from just cleansing and moisturising, find yourself a full skin care routine optimised for your specific skin concerns. This may require a skin care consultation, reading labels and some trial and error to find out what works best for you. You don’t want to be using a generic cleanser that may strip your skin of moisture if you have dry skin, for example!

2. Use a performing routine twice a day
Most advanced skin care routines contain different actives that work their magic both during the day and the night. If you’re just using your routine once a day, you’re missing out on the extra benefits. So be diligent and use your routine twice daily - your skin will thank you!

3. Overnight mask
Hello luscious self-care! An overnight mask is the perfect complement to your routine, especially if you’ve been in drying conditions like under the AC or outdoors in winter. The NovAge Overnight Mask is scientifically designed to help rehydrate your skin with powerful ingredients like hyaluronic acid, Cupuaçu Butter and Inca Inchi Oil.

4. Weekly routine
Incorporate a weekly skin care routine into your life. Some products can work wonders for your skin but are not made to be used on the daily. Exfoliants by removing dead skin cells, unclogging pores and smoothening out skin to reveal a more radiant complexion.

5. Youth-enhancing skin care
Even though your skin may still have its youthful bounce, it’s not too early to start using products that help keep it that way! The earlier you start with preventative measures the better your skin will look in the future.

6. Use SPF daily
Invest in a really good sunscreen for everyday use. You may not think you need sunscreen every day, but keeping in mind that UV rays can penetrate through clouds and bounce of shiny surfaces it is one of the best things you can do to keep your skin looking smooth in the long term.
