4 Ways to Keep Skin Young

Creating skin care regimens that you can realistically stick to is one of the key ways to keep skin young and healthy-looking. If you know that you’ll never be able to stick to a routine that has 10 steps, develop one that is shorter but includes steps, products, and ingredients that will help you meet your skin care goals. Want clear, younger-looking skin but short on time? Try a basic 4-step routine that includes the necessary ingredients for anti-aging as a start and add on additional steps as needed for your skin:



  1. Cleanse your skin fully with a gentle foaming cleanser that removes dirt, oil, makeup and impurities while also brightening skin tone.
  2. Apply a facial serum targeted to help address your skin care concerns after cleansing. To fade dark spots, try a dark spot corrector that corrects and brightens.
  3. Apply your moisturizer to hydrate and nourish skin. If your goal is finding skin treatments to look younger, look no further than this blend of niacinamide and vitamin C and retinol that helps correct discoloration while also smoothing - and don’t forget your SPF in the morning! Try a night fade cream before bed to wake up to brighter, healthier-looking skin.
  4. Don’t forget to care for the skin on your body too! If your discoloration is a concern on your body too, add a fade milk specially formulated to help correct discoloration from head-to-toe to your regimen.
