There’s nothing worse than feeling like your skin doesn’t look its best. When my skin looks clear, radiant, and even, I feel beautiful, motivated, and inspired. On days when my skin looks dull, lackluster, and uneven, my confidence and overall mood can take a big hit. Here at SkinOwl, we believe that skincare is selfcare and by taking care and nurturing your skin, you are nurturing yourself, inside and out.
Dull and lackluster skin is a common skin concern, especially during the cooler months. Our SkinOwl Brightening regimen is made to brighten, balance, and boost radiance. By following these simple steps, you’ll be well on your way to a healthy and glowing complexion.
What’s in the SkinOwl Brightening Regimen?
The first step in our SkinOwl Brightening Regimen is cleansing. This is an important step in anyone’s skincare routine because it cleanses away the dirt, grime, makeup, buildup, and environmental pollutants that gather on the surface of the skin throughout the day, leading to a dull complexion. By cleansing, you allow your products to penetrate deeply into the skin so that they can work their best.
For combination and uneven skin, we recommend our detoxifying Charcoal Beauty Bar. The charcoal is this cleanser helps draw out toxins and impurities from deep within the skin, helping to relieve decongestion and balance the skin’s oil production without stripping it. Its combination of powerful essential oils calm, heal, and clarify the skin.
We recommend using the charcoal bar in combination with our brightening Turmeric Beauty Bar. Tumeric brightens, calms, and heals the skin thanks to its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. This beauty bar also helps your skin glow by hydrating the skin with agave, which naturally stimulates your skin’s hyaluronic acid production, revealing a plump and smooth complexion. Lastly, oatmeal helps soothe your skin and lock in moisture for further hydration.
We like to use our Charcoal Beauty Bar at night to detoxify and our Turmeric Beauty Bar in the morning to brighten.
For those with combination and dull skin, toning is essential for relieving congestion and gently exfoliating the skin to reveal a radiant and even complexion. We recommend using our Beauty Steam to tone, cleanse, decongest, and hydrate. This luxurious and relaxing experience is also a perfect selfcare routine to help clear your mind and relieve stress. Our radiance-boosting flowers and herbs help bring vitality to your skin as the steam cleans away dirt and dead skin cells. Steam once or twice weekly to renew your skin.
Our next step in the SkinOwl Brightening Regimen is to moisturize. All of our moisturizers are facial oils boosted with botanicals elements to help hydrate, heal, and treat the skin. It’s essential to provide dull skin with enough moisture to help bring radiance back into the complexion.
For uneven, dull, and combination skin, we recommend our Geranium Beauty Drops as your morning moisturizer. This facial oil has a base of argan oil which is very hydrating and fast absorbing so you won’t have a greasy or sticky feeling. It also helps reduce the appearance of scars, so it’s perfect for treating acne scars, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation when used over time. Plus, its antioxidants can even help protect against wrinkles! Geranium oil acts as a decongestant and mitigates uneven texture and tone.
At night we recommend our Maqui Berry Beauty Drops pm. This facial oil has a base of baobab oil which is also very moisturizing, hydrating, and fast absorbing. It helps reduce inflammation of the skin and can treat dryness and sensitivity. It can also reduce the signs of aging, especially since it’s paired with Maqui Berry oil, which is the world’s strongest fruit antioxidant. This very strong antioxidant protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals, sun exposure, and environmental toxins and pollutants. Maqui Berry improves radiance, smooths uneven texture and tone, as well as helps clear congested skin.
To boost your SkinOwl Brightening Regimen we recommend using our Maqui Beauty Whip Face Mask. This mask reveals the look of intense moisture, even texture and tone, and a visibly brighter complexion. It hydrates with hyaluronic acid as well as rich and nourishing olive and jojoba oils. It fights the signs of aging due to environmental stressors with Maqui Berry and Rooibos tea.
This face mask is a bit untraditional but in all the best ways. Firstly, it can act as a traditional mask. You can apply a thick layer to the face (2 pumps) and leave it on for 20 minutes. Washing it off is totally optional because it acts as a makeup primer and a hydrating face moisturizer. Or you can leave it on as an intensely hydrating and reparative overnight treatment all night long. Our favorite way to use it here at SkinOwl is to mix it with our Maqui Berry Beauty Drops pm to boost our nighttime moisturizer.
