Top 5 Easy Ways to Make Your Skin Care More Effective

You want your skincare products to work well. We all do. Here is a list of ways to make your products work better than ever before.

Routine - Repetition is key

Routine - Repetition is key

We can’t just eat one salad for dinner and expect to suddenly lose 15lbs overnight and immediately be incredibly healthy and able to run a marathon. The same goes for our skin care. We need to care for our skin using the most healthy products we can find, every single day. Our skin will reap the benefits of consistency.
Serums are amazing and powerful additions to our skincare routine and with time, can make such a difference in how our skin looks. Using a phytonutrient rich vitamin C serum can make a night and day difference in your skin’s texture, but since it took time for your body to become depleted of hyaluronic acid, collagen or to develop fine lines, it will also take time to repair those issues and fight future damage.

A simple routine looks like Cleansing morning and night, Applying a serum morning and night, and then Moisturizing morning and night. Additional steps can be added into your routine such as Exfoliation once to twice a week and Applying a night time specific moisturizer, eye cream and/or serum. Consistency with this routine will help your skin improve and fight off signs of aging so much better than randomly using various products here and there. Routine skin care can make a huge difference.

Ingredients Matter

Ingredients Matter

Have you heard this saying? > “What goes on your body, goes into your body.”
It is 100% true. Your skin is your largest organ. One of its primary jobs is to protect your body from harmful intruders. Unfortunately, if we choose to put skincare ingredients on our skin that really are harmful chemicals, our body won’t know the difference. That is why we have to read the labels and ask ourselves what each ingredient is and why it is included in this product. Sisters Peace has made the choice to use the most clean ingredients, the most gentle preservatives and the most effective recipes. Products like .Moisture utilize the nutrients, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamins from ingredients found around the world including Acai Berry, Blue Berry, Bilberry, Pomegranate, Shea Butter, Olive Squalene and so much more. The preservative used is an amazing preservative that is good for your skin and bad for bacteria and other baddies. When you are using products that are truly healthy, your overall health can be improved. We work hard to put healthy ingredients into our bodies and we need to work equally hard to put healthy ingredients onto our bodies.

Open Pores - Warm, Damp Skin

Open Pores - Warm, Damp Skin

Skin absorbs serums and moisturizer so much better when it has been dampened first. I like to think of a kitchen sponge: When a sponge is dry, pouring dish soap on the surface does not cause soap to sink down inside; the soap stays on the surface and very, very slowly tries to sink in, but often will dry out before it can hydrate the sponge.

Our skin is just like that. Serums and moisturizers do their best work when you use them after you have washed your face. Your pores are open and receptive to transferring the goodness into your skin layers.

Scrub a Dub-Dub

Scrub a Dub-Dub

Don’t confuse cleansing with exfoliation. Exfoliation is the process of helping to remove the top-most layer of dead cells. When this is done once or twice a week, your skin can look brighter, your skin tone can look more even, and fine lines other problem spots can look less visible.
Two types of exfoliation can benefit your skin; mechanical exfoliation and chemical. Both exfoliation types help to reveal new, fresh skin cells that are being hidden by old, dull cells. Exfoliation gets rid of those old cells so your new cells can have a turn to shine.
Mechanical Exfoliation with a gentle product like .Scrub by Sisters Peace can both scrub away impurities and it can help to heal and rejuvenate your skin with the high amount of precious oils to heal, smooth and protect your skin. Sisters Peace uses a very fine natural pumice to gently reveal your glow while also being good for our planet and oceans.
Chemical Exfoliation gently breaks down the natural glue, called Keratin, that holds the cells together. Gentle chemical exfoliation used daily in a serum, or in an eye cream can give a giant boost of brightness to your skin. Natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids can be used in concentrations to be effective in facilitating cellular turnover gently or they can be used in stronger clinical strengths by your dermatologist or esthetician. Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid and can be found effective, yet gentle in Sisters Peace .Deep Serum, and can be found in Sisters Peace .Bright Eye Cream in the form of White Willow Bark extract.

A Clean Slate

A Clean Slate

Skin naturally has little divots, bumps and creases. When you look at skin through a microscope, you can really understand how important a good facial cleanser is. There are so many spots for makeup, sebum, and dirt to get trapped. The very basis of good skin, is being able to remove the impurities that get stuck and turn to clogged pores, bacteria harboring hair follicles, and full-blown acne attacks.

The best facial cleanser that I have found is really gentle and effective; Sisters Peace .Clean is a life saver when it comes to beautiful skin. Using .Clean daily, both morning and night, will help your skin to be clear, clean, moisturized and healthy.
