Your Quarantine Skincare Routine

Skin Care Routine

Want to know how to get the most out of your skin care routine through quarantine and beyond? Valley Skin Institute has got you totally covered. We’ve compiled a go-to guide on layering precisely the right products to ensure your skin looks just as good when you step back out into the world, if not better.

An Easy Guide to Layering the Four Most Important Skincare Products

The best-built skincare regimen tends to do three primary things: skin regeneration, skin protection, and skin moisturizing. Here are the four most important components of a skincare regimen to tackle all of those concerns effectively.

Vitamin C Brightening Serum1. Add an Antioxidant

Antioxidants are super important as part of your daily skin care routine because they help to protect your skin from free-radical damage and thwart issues with oxidative stress. Vitamin C is an ideal antioxidant because it is beneficial to the skin regardless of skin type. It helps encourage collagen production to support cell renewal and maintain that youthful glow that everyone wants. A good antioxidant product like FIG Vitamin C Brightening Serum is incorporated with green tea polyphenols, which delivers a soothing layer for any inflammation but also provides more antioxidant benefits. It is best to use a thin layer of the antioxidant-based serum every morning.

Tinted Daily Sunscreen2. Wear a Good Sunscreen

Most people have no idea that a high-quality sunscreen just happens to be one of the best anti-wrinkle solutions you can use, and even people who know that assume sunscreen is not always a necessity. Sunscreen should be applied to your face daily, even if it is cloudy and raining. If you wear makeup, apply sunscreen before makeup application, but it should always be incorporated in your daily routine. FIG Daily Physical Sunscreen is formulated to protect both UVA and UVB rays, it is lightweight, and complementary for retinol treatment.

Advanced Retinol Serum 5x3. Use a Retinol

Retinol is highly effective at reversing and combating signs of aging. It is actually considered one of the most effective weapons against aging, and it should always be relied on as part of your daily skin care routine. FIG Advanced Retinol Serum is formulated with a collaboration of green tea polyphenols and all-trans-retinol to deliver the protection against aging you want with little risk of skin irritation that can come along with using a retinol-based product. Use a retinol at night after removing your makeup.

Repair Cream4. Moisturize 

Moisturizing the skin is a way to inject those vital moisture molecules the skin loses throughout the day, but it also acts as a protective barrier to help support the actions of other agents you have already added to your skin. Some people moisturize only at night before they go to bed to seal in the retinol product they have just applied, but you can also moisturize in the morning as well. Keep in mind that most quality sunscreens do have moisturizing agents in them for the same purpose, however. FIG Repair Cream is specifically formulated to moisturize the skin and help support other products.

Your Skin Care Routine Should Stay Consistent Through Quarantine and Beyond

You may be spending more days hanging around the house, but that doesn’t mean you should forego your usual routine for taking good care of your skin. With a good plan in place and the best products, even weeks spent at home in your PJs and with no makeup will mean you look your best.
