Do You Need A Skincare Routine Even If You Don’t Wear Makeup?
The answer to the question above is absolutely! Whether or not you wear makeup, you should have a skincare routine to maintain your natural glow.
Right now, a lot of us aren’t leaving home very often, which means makeup hasn’t been an issue or applied in months! Is your skin feeling and looking better than ever? We can all relate. Are you having random breakouts due to mask face? We can relate with that, too! Are you hoping post-quarantine, society will decide a more “natural look” is better? I think we all hope for that!
Although your skin may be staying clearer, that doesn’t mean it’s clean. Daily exposure to the elements automatically adds build up and oil to your skin, making it more vulnerable to breakouts and dullness.
While we’d strongly recommend you stick with your full, original routine (see our blog “How Best To Spend Your Mornings”) whether you’re wearing makeup often or not, we understand skincare is time consuming and feels like high maintenance. So, if you really don’t want to commit the time to a skincare routine while going makeup-less in quarantine, here are some MUSTS you should always do.
- Cleanse. Dirt, oil, and grime build up on our skin every day: keeping it clean must be an active process. Cleansing your face in the morning and at night with warm water and a friendly wash will keep buildup and excess oil at bay. Our Hydrating Facial Milk Cleanser is a double whammy, acting as a deep wash and makeup remover! So, it’s perfect to use during and after quarantine, when it’s time to go back to work and the makeup must be applied!
- Serum + SPF. SPF protects your skin from UV rays and sunlight, while serums are rich in antioxidants, keeping daily stressors and bacteria from living on your skin or causing irritation. TEN’s Hyaluronic Booster Serum can do the job!
- Mask + Moisturize. Whether or not you’re wearing makeup, dry skin is a big no—no! We recommend you mask and moisturize often! Use our Advanced Skin Hydrating Mask at least once a week (we recommend twice a week) to absorb the hydration given from the carefully picked ingredients. After cleansing, use our Hydrating Surge Face Crème to moisturize! Use this crème throughout the day, not just during your am and pm routine.
We don’t know what the future will bring, but we do know we should all leave quarantine with TEN out of TEN skin! Start up your skincare routine again, even if it’s just the basics, to improve your skin’s appearance and cleanliness!
