Jump start with a little bit of exfoliation! Exfoliate! Exfoliate – but not daily

Generally, your serum should have active ingredients that you can wear throughout the day like Vitamin C which will make help in plumping and firming the skin. According to Dr. Jenny Liu, a board certified dermatologist and assistant professor in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Minnesota, one good reason why Vitamin C is integral part of any skincare ingredient is because of its ability to inhibit enzyme that called tyrosinase – used in pigmentation and melanin production. One good reason why it makes it an effective lightening ingredient.
Sunscreen is indeed your skincare buddy
This is the most repetitive skincare advice we’ve given and will continue to advice. Because why not? Sunscreen should be your skincare buddy no matter what season you are in. Sun exposure is the most emphasized reason for skin damage. Limiting your exposure to sun plus making sure that you are protected with SPF is of big help in attaining even skin tone. It is important to wear sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30 and says broad spectrum on its label. Yes! Check your label! Don’t forget to reapply based on what is instructed on the label. Seriously, it’s about time you get serious about sunscreen.
Moisturizing is as important as cleansing. Moisturize at least twice a day: once after you shower in the morning and once after you cleanse your face at night. Always see to it that you apply moisturizer right after cleansing your face as it helps locking in the moisture and provides a protective barrier on your skin to reduce the harmful causes brought by environmental aggressors. If you notice that your skin feels dry despite moisturizing regularly, perhaps, it is the time for you to make a big switch.
