Your skin goes through changes all the time, no matter your age. Because of this, it’s important to reassess your skincare routine every once in a while. Change is important. A little mix-up could benefit your skin in ways which you won’t believe! A complete overhaul is usually unnecessary, but replacing a couple products seasonally is a great rule of thumb. Read along to see how to know if your skincare routine needs an update.
Change your skincare routine if…
Your skin is acting more sensitive than usual.
Sometimes, for no apparent reason, the skin can start to act more sensitive.
Potential signs of sensitivity include:
- skin is looking red and flushes easily
- capillaries appearing more visible
- your products creating a stinging sensation when you haven’t changed anything
- skin is getting rash-like bumps
The underlying cause of most sensitivity issues comes from your skin’s barrier getting compromised and damaged. The easiest fix is to switch to a fragrance-free moisturizer that is specifically formulated to correct the signs of sensitive skin. An excellent cream is Lumière de Vie Super Crème. A luxuriously rich crème that reduces the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, this triple action formula is designed to brighten, hydrate, and prevent. Scientifically formulated with tranexamic acid, Super Crème transforms dull and uneven skin to enhance its natural radiance.
You’re not seeing any improvement from your current routine.
Sometimes skincare products just don’t jive with your skin. Occasionally, the improvement you want simply cannot be found in a bottle. However, you should certainly be seeing some gradual changes in the skin. A smoother, smaller-pored texture is easy to attain with exfoliating products such as Lumière de Vie® Volcanic Exfoliating Mask.
Lumière de Vie Volcanic Exfoliating Mask is formulated to detoxify, enhance skin’s glow, and dramatically improve tone and radiance. Utilizing rare earth elements and infused with AHA complex and the natural oil-absorbing power of kaolin and bentonite clays, this treatment creates a balanced detoxifying/exfoliating action that leaves skin glowing, revitalized and healthy. This intensive treatment will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as brighten and smooth skin’s texture.
Your skin is starting to get blemishes.
The one skin care concern that is the biggest mystery and seems to take on a life of its own is having blemishes. They can come out of nowhere at any age and at any time. If breakouts are causing you trouble, it’s a good time to make some adjustments to your routine. An excellent product for this is Lumière de Vie® Illuminating Fading Fluid
Lumière de Vie Illuminating Fading Fluid is a powerful formula that instantly illuminates the skin, while it minimizes the appearance of dark spots and reduces the appearance of redness. Transform the skin with a powerful hydrating complex that leaves the skin soft and provides optimal hydration. Potent properties reduce the appearance of aging and refine tone. Restore radiance for a flawless complexion.
You’re getting a little older and ready to kick things up a notch.
There comes a time when you look in the mirror and feel like your skin care routine just isn’t cutting it. Change your skincare routine to give a boost of smoothing and brightening. Wear sunscreen and choose a product with retinol for anti-aging results. We love Lumière de Vie® Renewal Elixir for this! It’s a luxurious, superior facial oil that deeply moisturizes and reduces the appearance of aging for a youthful-looking, healthy glow. This gentle multitasker utilizes a weightless blend of skin-loving oils to hydrate, strengthen and smooth for renewed and resilient skin. Texture and elasticity are supported, and the appearance of dark spots is minimized, giving your skin obsession-worthy radiance. Seal in hydration, maintain an even skin tone, and defy time with this powerful treatment that revives your skin.
The seasons are changing and you’re feeling it in your skin.
In the winter, lack of humidity in the air during winter can dramatically affect the way your skin looks and feels. When dryness and dehydration set in, the skin feels tight and uncomfortable, and fines lines on the face and under the eyes can be much more prominent. Try Lumière de Vie Moisture Intense Sheet Masque. On the other hand, summer means an increase of oil due to heat and plenty of humidity in the air. It’s time to lighten things up a bit. Try Lumière de Vie Rosé Refresher for a pick-me-up!
You’ve moved to a new city and your skin starts behaving differently.
From changes in water, climate, food, lifestyle, pollution and other undetectable factors, moving to a new city can definitely cause the skin to act differently. The simple solution is to listen to your skin and adjust your skin care accordingly. Alcohol-free toners are a great way to remove impure tap water if you suspect the water is taking a toll on your skin. We love Lumière de Vie Toner.
You’re simply bored with your routine.
New = exciting but new doesn’t always mean good. However, if you’re bored and want to change things up, then try something new!
