Try Not to Touch
There are SO many reasons to avoid touching your face, especially during these pandemic times. According to the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, the average person is said to touch their face about 23 times an hour. Face touching can lead to the spread of viruses, bacteria, and germs. This can be a challenging rule to stick to, especially if you’re prone to acne or any kind of breakout. Try to remind yourself of why it’s best not to touch your face if you’re fighting the temptation to squeeze or pick at your breakouts
Limit Sun Exposure
It may feel good to bask in it, but too much exposure to the sun can be truly detrimental to your skin in a variety of ways. Spending too much time in the sun can cause a litany of problems, from skin cancer to wrinkles and sunspots. It is important to always use a good SPF during the day, to protect your skin from the sun’s rays.
Always Wash Off the Day
If your skin is looking dull or you’re experiencing inexplicable breakouts of blackheads and whiteheads, the culprit might be your skincare routine and a lack of regularly washing your face at night. If you’re wearing makeup, if you’re going out into the world and exposing your skin to the elements, at the end of the day it is so important to cleanse your face and put your skin to bed. The HARDEST Working Skin + Hair Refining Vitamin C CLEANSER is here to wash away and help protect your skin from free-radical damage and adverse environmental exposure, restoring moisture and necessary nutrients to your barrier.
Night Time is the Right Time (for Skincare)
Did you know that your skin’s cells have their highest rate of turnover at night? It’s true! When you go to sleep, your skin protects itself from the day’s stresses, accelerating cellular regeneration. This is the time to replenish your skin with a nutritious combination of beneficial ingredients. This is the perfect time to reach for The HARDEST Working Skin + Hair Triple Threat CREAM. We’re giving your skin bakuchiol, a plant-based antioxidant that offers similar but safer benefits to retinol, boosting collagen and stimulating healthy cellular turnover. Niacinamide is beloved by dermatologists because it can help to alleviate the appearance of enlarged pores, and helps to even out skin tone and fine lines. Hyaluronic Acid rounds out the trifecta, plumping dry skin with much needed moisture.
