Let's talk about face-care real quick. Do you wash your face every day? Having a skincare routine can be a major game-changer, but where do you start? We're here to help you build a simple, easy-to-follow routine using your Hudson Valley Skin Care face products.
The first step in your skincare routine is cleansing your face. Always use clean hands before touching your face and wash for 30-60 seconds in circular motions with warm water. Cleansing is the most important step in your routine; it removes excess oil and grime to ensure a clean face for the rest of your skincare products to absorb correctly. A great gentle option for everyday use is the Goat-to Creamy Cleanser. This powerful cleanser contains nutrient-rich Goat's Milk to hydrate and moisturize your face. On days you feel you need a little extra exfoliation, the Goat-to Face Scrub is a great alternative. This gentle face scrub contains a blend of natural butters, oils, and shells to physically exfoliate your face and reveal a bright, soft complexion.
Second, it's time to apply any toners, serums, and treatment products. We're going to talk about our Clarifying Clay Mask, which is a great natural alternative for controlling breakouts and oil. Using a clay mask 1-2 times a week can be super beneficial for acne-prone skin; you can even use a clay mask as a spot treatment overnight! Our Clarifying Clay Mask is made with a powerful blend of Bentonite, French Green Clay, and Kaolin Clays that work to detoxify your pores and draw impurities out. In contrast, Vitamin E, Honey, and Oats work to soothe and protect your skin.
Next up, it's time to moisturize. The Goat-to Face Cream is the perfect lightweight face cream for long-lasting results. The Lactic Acid content in Goat's Milk gently sloughs off dry skin to reveal brighter, smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Other ingredients like Honey work to bring hydration to your skin, while Vitamin E and Oats work to nourish, protect and soothe your skin.
Finally, it's time to lock in that hydration with the Pure Perfection Face Oil. Face oil has been used for centuries worldwide to provide skin with extra benefits and glowing skin. This Squalane-rich face oil is blended with antioxidant-rich Vitamin E and Cold-pressed Sunflower Seed Oil to create a lightweight moisturizing face oil packed with all the vitamins and nutrients your skin needs.
Oh, and you can't forget about the lips! We always go natural for lip products, as it's going directly near your mouth. Our Lip Balm is made with Beeswax, locally sourced Sunflower Seed Oil, Avocado Butter, and antioxidant-rich Vitamin E to condition your lips and deliver the nutrients and nourishment that they deserve. With six flavors to choose from, picking a lip balm has never been harder!
So, do you need a fancy 10 step skincare routine? If it makes you happy and your skin needs it, go for it! A basic routine will work just fine for most of us, as long as you wash your face once a day. Moisturizing is super important as well, especially as we age. Doing your skincare routine every day will result in healthy, supple skin, which is always the goal.
