If you are new to skincare or you already have a routine but you feel like you need to change it, keep on reading in order to find out how can you build a natural, healthy, green skincare routine.
What is Your Skin Type?
The first thing you need to do in order to build the best possible routine for you is to discover the type of your skin. One way to do that is to clean your face and leave it bare for about 30 minutes. After that examine your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead for any shine. After another 30 minutes pass examine whether your skin feels parched, especially when you smile or make facial expressions. If you feel like it’s dry, then you probably have a dry skin type. If you can notice shine on your nose or forehead, then your skin is likely normal/combination. And if there is shine on your cheeks in addition to your nose and forehead, then you probably have oily skin.
Once you find your type, it is much easier to determine the products you are going to use. Luckily, there is a line of products that everyone can benefit from when used daily. Bear with me for the details.
What Skincare Products do You Need?
Regardless of your skin type, you still need to use a cleanser, serum or oil, moisturizer, SPF factor and makeup remover. Granted, you do need to read the label to see if they fit your type, but that doesn’t mean that you should skip them. Next, there are skin types that can also benefit from using a toner (for oily skin), an eye cream (especially for mature skin), spot/blemish treatment (if you are prone to breakouts), and at least two times a week you are advised to use exfoliants and face masks
The Super Green Routine for Healthy, Glowing Skin
Now, after everything is set and done, it’s time to acquire your skincare products and start applying. Sukin’s super greens is a range of products that simply scream goodness. Each product features hand-picked actives of kale that can brighten your complexion and spirulina – which contains proteins and fatty acids that give a youthful glow. Moreover, the chlorella found as part of the ingredients in these products is there to promote collagen production, and parsley to help you maintain an even skin tone.
This product range consists of detoxifying clay masque, detoxifying facial scrub, a cleansing oil, facial recovery serum and a nutrient-rich sukin super greens moisturizer. The above mentioned natural ingredients are perfectly combined with an abundance of other goodies like acai and goji berries, liquorice extract and baobab which are full with antioxidants. Their purpose is to make the detoxifying clay masque, detoxifying facial scrub, facial recovery serum and the nutrient-rich sukin super greens moisturizer able to brighten, plump and boost your skin’s health and look.
As for how the routine should go, it is simple and frankly, quite enjoyable too. First, start with the cleansing oil. Soak a cotton pad and gently wipe your eyes and face until you completely remove your makeup and your skin is clean. After you are done, rinse your face thoroughly with warm water. Next, apply the serum to your face, neck and decolletage and follow with the sukin super greens moisturizer. As for the mask and the scrub, you are supposed to use them twice weekly. The masque should be allowed to penetrate for about 15 minutes before rinsing it off, and the scrub is used in circular motions for a massage-like feeling.
