How to get smoother skin: faster, smarter and at home

By whind

Wondering how you can quickly - and effectively - reverse parched, patchy skin? We’ve compiled a list of DIY tips to upgrade your daily routines, from the comfort of your own home.

Beauty Sleep

It’s no secret that a solid eight hours is beneficial to your mental well-being, but did you know it also helps your skin cells regenerate. Walking around during the day attracts environmental stressors like UV rays, pollution and free radicals that cling to and clog the pores. So we say pull up the covers and get cozy.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

You’ve heard it before, but getting enough water is a non-negotiable when it comes to achieving a smooth, youthfully-refreshed complexion. We recommend six to eight glasses minimum, and then some.

Feel the burn

A vigorous cardio session is good for getting the blood pumping through your muscles, as well as skin cells. Exercise helps regulate hormones, circulate oxygen and nutrients and promote collagen production for added anti-aging results. And a good sweat helps release any excess toxins.

Out with the old

Exfoliation is the best way to slough away dead skin cells to make way for softer, smoother, radiant-looking skin. A quick resurfacing scrub boosted with antioxidant-rich nutrients can help transform rough, textured skin over time. (We’ve got a few treatments in the pipeline… join our newsletter to be the first to find out when the collection launches.)

Break out the tools

Or better yet, let a professional do it for you. Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that strategically blasts the skin with abrasive particles to resurface the skin and boost cell regeneration for glowy-fresh skin. There are plenty of at-home tools that help you treat sun damage, fine lines, age spots, scarring (and other conditions), but we’re more comfortable leaving it to our facialist.

Peels

Less abrasive than microdermabrasion, chemical peels often have longer-lasting results, according to dermatologists. Exfoliating acids (think AHAs like glycolic and lactic, as well as BHAs like Salycilic Acid) provide a gentler alternative to microdermabrasion and often offer longer-lasting with consistent use.
