HOW TO START A SKINCARE ROUTINE
With all the options out there—and new products launching every day—finding the best skincare essentials for your complexion seems like an impossible task. But don’t worry, we’re here to make things simple, so you can find a skincare routine that’s as effective as it is a joy to use.
STEP 1: LEARN THE BASICS
In addition to cleansing and applying SPF, every daily skincare routine should consist of four major components: BRIGHTEN in the morning with vitamin C, STRENGTHEN both morning and night with ceramides & peptides, RENEW with chemical exfoliants (i.e. AHAs or BHAs), and REPEAT daily. These four skincare non-negotiables are known as The Glow Cycle, a daily routine to unlock your best skin. Understanding The Glow Cycle means that you know what makes effective routine. Now you just need to plug the correct products for your skin type into each step.
When choosing the products that’ll fit into each step,think about what your biggest skincare goals are: Are you looking for skincare for oily skin? The best skincare products for aging skin? Or maybe you want skincare for sensitive skin. No matter your concern, we have something you’ll love.
STEP 2: CHOOSE A CLEANSER
Starting clean is key to getting the #OleGlow. And, let’s be honest, there’s nothing more refreshing or satisfying than washing the day (and dirt, oil and makeup) away. Now that you’ve figured out your skin concerns, here are some facial cleansers you might be into:
NORMAL TO OILY SKIN TYPES
Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser: This mattifying oil control cleanser purifies and reduces the look of pores—without stripping skin. The salicylic acid works wonders for daily use, but it’s always good to have another cleansing option on days or seasons that your skin feels a little drier.

STEP 3: PICK A MOISTURIZER
Hydrated skin is happy skin. Every skin type—even oily skin—needs moisture to function properly, and the key is to find the right formula for your skin type.

STEP 4: FIND A SERUM This could be considered extra credit for skincare newbies, but if you really want to give your skin a boost, try a facial serum. Facial serums work with your cleanser and moisturizer to deliver additional skincare benefits. The best face serum strategy is to use one in the morning and one at night, so you’re tackling your skin concerns around the clock.
