The 5 Essential Skincare Products
1. Cleanser
A good cleanser is the first step and sets the stage for the rest of your skincare routine. Cleansers remove dirt, oil, and makeup, unclog pores and wash away dead skin. Look for one that's hypoallergenic, gentle, and fragrance-free. You'll also want a nourishing and hydrating cleanser; otherwise, it might feel like you're stripping your skin dry.

2. Toner
Toners are needed to replenish your skin with good-for-you ingredients, balance the skin's pH level, and lay a base for other skincare products. Look for a toner that soothes and refreshes your skin with anti-aging properties. The goal is for your skin to feel firmer and rejuvenated over time.

Here's a secret: The best toners improve the effectiveness of other skincare products, making them a crucial part of any comprehensive skincare regime.

3. Moisturizer
Yes, you need a moisturizer even if you have oily skin. You can't have smooth, glowing skin without a moisturizer in your regimen. Good moisturizers are lightweight yet super hydrating.

4. Serum
Serums come packed full of active ingredients depending on the specific skin issue you're targeting, whether brightening, repairing, or anti-aging. A high-quality serum will absorb quickly into your skin, leaving you feeling refreshed. Some serums are multi-purpose. However, keeping your skincare simple is essential to discern which products work best for you. If you're targeting a specific issue like hydration or barrier repair, it's best to start simple and have only the essential skincare products in your routine.

Rescue Serum is an anti-aging serum that acts as your first line of defense against the loss of elastin and collagen. Featuring our Agave plant protein formula, it keeps your skin hydrated, youthful, and supple while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

5. Eye Cream Looking to target dark circles or address fine lines from sun damage or aging? Then an eye cream should form part of your essentials. Eye creams deliver hydration tailor-made for use under your eyes where the skin is thinnest. Look for an anti-aging eye cream that will reduce puffiness and combat all the signs of eye aging while boosting circulation for a more rested look.
