Our Experts Reveal Their Top 10 Tips For Skin Care

Beautiful skin isn’t hard to come by, but it does require some basic know-how. Who better to ask than our inhouse experts on how to take care of your best asset? Eminence Organics Product Support Team Lead Alicia Hawthorne and Alana Henrikson bring a combined 29 years of esthetics experience, and they’ve distilled their knowledge into an unwavering set of skin care commandments. Here are their top 10 skin care tips that they follow, without fail.

Cleanliness is not just next to godliness but to divine-looking skin too. The first law in skin care is to remove your makeup every night before you go to bed. It’ll prevent breakouts and premature signs of aging. 

Turn this sports mantra into your skin care one and protect your skin from the sun. Even though sun damage doesn’t show itself right away, it will later, so if you are shielding yourself from too much UV, you’ll be ahead of the game.  Even on cloudy days, make sure you go out wearing sunscreen or a double-duty moisturizer with SPF, like our Lilikoi Mineral Defense Moisturizer SPF 40

Every month, you need to put your face in the hands of a pro. A monthly assessment by an esthetician means that if a problem, like clogged pores, is starting to develop, you can get treatment underway before it gets serious.

Don’t pick at blemishes. It may be tempting but popping and squeezing your problem skin leads to an inflammatory response. And once the skin is inflamed, it reacts by causing hyperpigmentation spots or by disrupting collagen production - resulting in dark acne spots or depressed acne scars.

Exfoliate at least once a week (depending on your skin type). This keeps pores clean which helps shrink pore size.

The fragile area around our eyes is aging’s first giveaway. Keep it hydrated with eye cream both morning and night to keep crows feet and deeper lines at bay.  

Serums and oils can address specific concerns, especially dehydration. A serum that has hyaluronic acid in it will hydrate and help prevent signs of aging. It’s an ingredient we naturally have in our body that helps keep the skin nice and plump, but we start losing it around the age of 25. 

Be nice to your skin! Your skin is going through lots of changes in life because of environment, stress, hormones and aging. Get lots of sleep, indulge in our recommended home care products and treat yourself to a facial at your nearest Eminence Organics partner spa
