The Basics

A daily and nightly skincare routine is a great way to show yourself some TLC and make sure you are keeping your largest organ healthy. If you are starting from the beginning or just looking to change up your routine, the vastness of the skincare industry can feel overwhelming. 

No matter your skin concerns you will want to start with a clean face then apply your active ingredients and always finish by sealing it all in with moisturizer. It can be as simple as that! Check out our curated morning and night skincare routine with expert tips below.


The Routine

1. Cleanse

First step: wash your face. Face wash is designed to clean the skin so make sure your wash isn't packed with surfactants. Surfactants are soaps that can draw oil and dirt from pores, stripping moisture from the skin and leading to dryness, itchiness or redness. This is where a gentle, hydrating face wash is key! Some skincare professionals recommend double cleansing at night as your skin has been exposed to so many elements throughout the day. 

2. Tone

The efficacy for toners is often debated in the skincare community. Some swear by toners powerful pore tightening capacity, and some totally skip this step. If you decide to tone, don't worry, you don't have to use a harsh astringent! Toners of today are much more gentle and soothing. If you are using a toner, make sure to use before your serum.

3. Serum

Serums are highly-concentrated formulas that absorb faster into the skin to replenish and nourish nutrients. WE ARE DEFINITELY ON TEAM SERUM. They are great for targeting certain specific skin concerns and revitalizing skin in whatever way it needs.

4. Moisturizer

Finally: MOISTURE! Moisturizer is an essential step in your morning and night time routine. In the morning, try to include sunscreen during this step to guard your skin against UVA/UVB rays. By combining CBD with potent adaptogens, Vena’s Deep Hy Adaptive Moisturizer adapts to the skin’s changing state making it a personalized solution for any skin type by successfully rebalancing skin, deeply hydrating, and protecting against changing hormonal and environmental stressors.

A facemask is such a treat after a long day. Along with daily skincare serums and moisturizers, an additional infusion of moisture from time to time is important to keep skin properly hydrated. And who doesn't want to feel like they are at the spa?
