Five Products I Always Repurchase
Skin is amazing. It is the only organ on the outside of the body. Every day it is exposed to everything the world can throw at it. Some of the things my skin has had to endure over the years have included weather, chemicals, dirt, and internal issues like illnesses. It’s no wonder my skin hasn’t always looked its best. I have had to rely on skincare products to help me keep it healthy, but that is sometimes easier said than done.
Finding and maintaining a good skincare regimen is something we all struggle with. I certainly have. That’s why I always repurchase the products that consistently work for me once I find them. My go-to staples of skincare help me lay a foundation for skin health all year long, no matter what situations I subject my skin to. Here are five products I always repurchase because I know they’ll help me keep my skin clean, bright, and healthy.
Everyone buys soap, but the specific type of soap I buy makes all the difference for my skin. Most regular soaps only serve to dry my skin, especially during cooler months. Even in the summer, my skin can use all the added moisture and soothing action it can get. For that, I always turn to glycerin soap. Glycerin soap has many benefits, such as:
- Soothing Inflamed Skin
- Healing Cracks and Rough Areas
- Healing Wounds, Such as Those Caused by Acne
- Providing Antibacterial Protection
I always recommend glycerin soap due to the versatility it offers as well. It can treat many different skin types from dry to oily. When my skin condition changes with the seasons, my favorite glycerin soaps still keep nourishing and protecting it. Even with sensitive skin, I am never disappointed by a glycerin-based soap.
Moisturizers are not the only products I like. I actually rely on them. A good moisturizer is the foundation of any successful skincare routine. The tough part was finding moisturizers that work for me. Most experts agree that a moisturizer is only as good as the skin type to which it is applied. For example, experts at the Mayo Clinic say dry skin responds best to an oil-based moisturizer. Water-based moisturizer is better at moisturizing normal skin.
Another feature of moisturizer that caused me to experiment with it a lot is it is everywhere. It is built into so many different beauty products that choosing one is impossible. For example, I love using day cream with moisturizing properties, but I also regularly purchase moisturizing night cream. I finally realized using multiple moisturizing products consistently was the key. In fact, I now pack my skincare routine with them.
I absolutely must have a facial cleanser in my skincare arsenal at all times. Like day and night creams, facial cleanser is a moisturizing product, but a well-formulated cleanser also
provides many other benefits. The best cleansers help maintain my skin by:
- Removing Pollutants and Dirt
- Hydrating My Skin
- Removing Dead Skin Cells
- Giving My Skin a Revitalized Glow
The trick is not every facial cleanser is the same. I always look for all-natural facial cleansers. They must contain the ingredients I need, such as collagen to restore my skin cells. My top facial cleansers also contain healing and protective vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin E and vitamin A. I also gravitate toward facial cleansers with soothing, light scents that can relax me on stressful days.
I am constantly purchasing facial masks because applying them is soothing and relaxing at the time, and their long-term benefits are excellent. A regular face mask regimen can treat anything from fine lines to acne, according to the Cleveland Clinic and other experts. However, I discovered that choosing the right types of masks was essential for my skincare success. I learned to avoid masks that contain any of the following:
- Excessive Dyes.
- Harsh Chemicals.
All-natural masks are always the most soothing, and they offer the best long-term results. Activated charcoal masks are great for skin detoxification. I have also found organic matcha masks work wonders for my skin. They even reduce eye puffiness and under-eye circles.
I have discovered one of the biggest secrets to skincare success is remembering to care for all of my skin. It is fine to use hand lotion or face masks consistently, but neglecting other areas can lead to irreversible damage. One of the areas that tend to get neglected the most is the mouth. There is nothing more mismatched than a glowing complexion paired with dry, cracked, damaged lips. That is why I never go anywhere without lip balm in my purse.
Organic herbal lip balm is one of my go-to choices. Lip balm with a beeswax base is smooth, soothing, and locks in moisture. I always look for organic lip balms that contain other ingredients known for their healing properties as well, such as Shea butter.
Fortifying My Favorite Skincare Products
Purchasing the products above and using them all the time has helped me obtain and maintain healthy skin. However, I also go out of my way to set my favorite products up for success by protecting my skin from the sun. In fact, I seek out products like lip balm that has sunscreen in them. That way I can never forget to apply sunscreen, even on the busiest day. And, of course, the best way to boost your beauty product bottom line is to live a healthy lifestyle.
