Having clean, clinically-effective skincare products is just the first step to a great skincare routine, and ultimately great skin. In order for your products to truly work for you, you have to apply them in the right step and at the right time. So whether your routine is 3 steps or 30 steps, it’s all about the order and consistency. Applying your products from thinnest to thickest helps ensure the products can penetrate the skin effectively. Here’s how to build the ultimate skincare routine, along with some tips to get the most out of your skincare from our Director of Product Development:
Cleansing preps your skin for all the steps that follow – without a clean foundation none of your other products will be as effective. Ridding your skin of dirt, bacteria, makeup, and environmental pollutants will allow your skin to readily absorb the next products you apply. It’s even more effective if this first step involves a cleanser that doesn’t just clean, but that also starts the process of treating your skin. Veracity offers two hormone-safe cleansers that serve this purpose. The Advanced Hydration Cleanser is an oil-based formula that deeply cleanses your pores, while delivering back moisture to address a dry, depleted skin barrier. Blemish Calming Cleanser is a gentle foaming cleaner that both soothes irritated skin and clears breakouts with exfoliating and antibacterial ingredients including sulfur.
An optional step that can help to rebalance, exfoliate, or control excess sebum.
03 Targeted Treatments
Vital Concentrates are super serums that target specific skin concerns such as acne, dark spots, dryness, and dull skin. Since they contain potent, efficacious ingredients they should be applied before other products to enhance penetration into the skin. Smooth 1-2 drops on your face in the mornings and evenings.
You can also apply a small dot of Vital Concentrates throughout the day as needed. Here's a cheat sheet:
Inflammation Response – apply to inflamed blemishes or redness from irritation to soothe
Regenerating Infusion – apply to flaky patches, or areas of congestion to enhance exfoliation
Brightening Support – apply to dark spots and hyperpigmentation to fade them away
Hydration Balance – apply to dry patches, fine lines and wrinkles to boost hydration and plump
Think of the BioEvolve Serum as a daily multivitamin for your skin. BioEvolve Serum energizes and protects the skin – it smooths away signs of aging, hydrates, and protects from blue light exposure. It's adaptogenic and biomimetic ingredients build a foundation for healthy skin, at any stage of life.
Massage 1-2 pumps of serum onto your skin mornings and evenings right after applying your Vital Concentrate. Follow with BioEvolve Moisturizer for optimal results.
Tip: The lightweight, silky nature of this formula makes it a multi-tasking hero to double as a skin primer. Add 1 pump to the skin or blend in with your favorite foundation formula for a seamless and dewy application.
The crucial step that seals in the nutrient rich actives from the previous steps. BioEvolve Moisturizer is made with skin barrier replenishing ceramides and adaptogenic ingredients that hydrate and lock in moisture for up to 72 hours.
Massage a nickel-sized amount of product onto the face, neck, and chest mornings and evenings after applying your BioEvolve Serum.
Tip: Create a customized treatment by mixing a few drops of your Vital Concentrate into the moisturizer for an extra skin boost. If you are using two Vital Concentrates, apply your primary Vital Concentrate onto the skin after cleansing and your secondary Vital Concentrate into your moisturizer.
06 Sun Protection
Never forget your mineral SPF! Protect and defend your skin from UVA/UVB and other environmental aggressors with hormonally-safe mineral sunscreen. It really does make a difference.
