The most important thing when it comes to skincare is to create a simple routine. Go online and you’ll read a crazy amount of ways to do it, and things to do it with, so let’s try to keep this simple. 


Start and end every day with a simple cleansing of your face to remove bacteria, grime, and sebum. Wash the entire face with lukewarm water to avoid clogged pores and acne. 

When it comes to cleansing every skin is different, if your skin is oily, you may want to try a gentle foam. If your skin is naturally dry, you can try cleansing milk, cream, or lotion. While it sounds weird, emollient oils are also good cleansers that break down old makeup. I don’t usually recommend using regular hand soap, as it can be hard on the skin. But if you are looking for a natural alternative, simply put a few drops of lemon in your water and see what happens.


I cannot tout the benefit of this enough. It’s simple, once you’ve cleaned off the old dirt and grime, you want to make sure you leave your skin moist and well-protected.

When we get older, our skin loses its ability to retain water.  

Moisturizers, like day creams and night creams, help your skin retain water and complement the natural oils found in the skin. 

If all you do, in terms of skincare, is cleansing routinely and daily moisturizing using a day cream with a good sunscreen, you are already off to a brilliant start. 

There is a difference between day and night creams of course. You want to look for a day cream, like Work Work All Day Cream and One Helluva Day Cream which contains plenty of antioxidants to protect you from pollution, and UVA/UVB filters to protect you from sun rays. Night creams on the other hand should focus on rejuvenating skin cells and repairing damage and removing dark spots. Our Go F… To Sleep Cream also contains GABA, which is nicknamed slow botox.   


One of the things I’ve noticed over the years is that people in their eagerness to get results simply forget how sensitive the natural balance of your skin truly is. 

Problems can occur when you use too abrasive scrubs or exfoliants. Or even microbeads that are bad for both the skin and the planet. Over-cleansing can leave your skin dry and destroy the natural balance of the skin.

Sometimes, what your skin needs, more than anything, is a break. From perfumes and makeup, sure. But also from harsh soaps, intense serums, and abrasive exfoliants. Try to see what happens, if you give your skin time to rest. Now that you’re back at zero, pick a few good products, work on your routine, and give whatever you are using the time to work. 

It’ll work wonders. You’ll see.
