Skincare can often feel overwhelming, especially with all the new products and ingredients out there. However, caring for your skin doesn't have to be so complicated. As long as you have the basics down pat, you should be fine!
Check out these simple yet effective beauty tips that can help improve your skin:
1. Go for gentle cleansers
Protecting your skin barrier is key to getting healthier skin. In case you didn't know, it's the outermost layer of your skin. It acts as a protective shield and helps the skin to retain moisture. You can usually tell if your skin barrier is damaged when you're experiencing dryness, itchiness, irritation, and more. This is caused by natural aging, environmental factors, and even physical damage (ex. overwashing and over-exfoliating.)
If you want to preserve your skin barrier, switching to mild, low pH cleansers is a great place to start, as well as steering clear of toners formulated with alcohol.

2. Be consistent
When it comes to skincare, consistency is key. Even if you use the best products out there, you won't be able to see results if you only use them every now and then.
FN Tip: Try simplifying your skincare routine so it'll be easier for you to stick to it!
3. Protect, protect, protect!
If there's one thing we learned from every dermatologist, it's the importance of using sunscreen every day. Over time, sun exposure causes wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. Typically, your 30s is when you start to see the effects of sun damage—but it's never too late to start protecting your skin!
FN Tip: If you're not sure how much sunscreen you need, try the two-finger method. Simply apply two lines of sunscreen on your fingers (one on the ring finger, and one on the middle finger.)
4. Listen to your skin
Your skin goes through many changes as you grow older. Your skin type may change and you may even encounter new issues like adult acne and hyperpigmentation. That said, always listen to your skin so you can adjust your regimen based on what you need.
