Skincare, Do Care: How to Practice Selfcare at Home
We know #selfcaresunday is a thing…but guess what? Selfcare can (and should!) happen anytime you need it—especially when it comes to your skincare routine. Dr. Murad has always believed that skincare is healthcare is selfcare and was an advocate for giving his dermatology patients permission to care for themselves as part of a whole person regimen. Regardless of how you do it, selfcare should be about doing what makes you feel good. Here are three easy ways to combine skincare and selfcare to relax, reset, recharge, and revive inside and out.
Your skin can’t talk, but it will tell you when it’s time for a peel when dullness, roughness, dryness, and congestion take over. Answer your skin’s cry for attention with our ultimate at-home peel: Intensive-C Radiance Peel. Perfect for rescuing skin 1-2 times a week, this antioxidant peel brightens skin, visibly improves texture, and hydrates to restore radiance and even skin tone after one use. It’s formulated with glycolic acid (one of our favorite acids that exfoliates to accelerate cell turnover of dark, damaged skin cells), vitamin C and Indian fig (help to protect against free radical damage while enhancing skin clarity and luminosity) and myrtle extract (for an extra boost of youthful radiance and elasticity).
Selfcare bonus: This peel works best when you leave it on for up to 10 minutes, which is just the right amount of time for a quick meditation session, journaling, or getting through a chapter of a book.
Bask in a Mask
Maybe we all love masks because they give us permission to do nothing but chill while they work. Whatever your reason may be, Pore Extractor Pomegranate Mask gives visibly large pores a run for their money and enjoy a little selfcare at home at the same time? Try Pore Extractor Pomegranate Mask. This mask exfoliates dead skin cells from the surface, draws out impurities and deep cleans every last pore for cleaner skin and minimized pore appearance—and pores are noticeably smaller after one use!
Selfcare bonus: Draw a bath and soak in the tub while this mask works its pore-purging magic.
Better Sleep. Better Skin.
It's a fact: sleep is when your body resets and recovers from the stressors of the day, whether emotional or physical. Part of this recovery includes your skin. Give it a boost with Night Fix Enzyme Treatment. It works like a sleeping mask over your moisturizer to combat signs of sleep deprivation (lines, wrinkles, dryness, lack of radiance) and boost the benefits of your PM regimen. And, it’s formulated with patent-pending aroma technology that is shown to enhance sleep quality. Put it on your nightstand and sweep over skin after you tuck in, and wake to skin that looks well-rested.
Selfcare bonus: Mindful meditation can help improve the quality of your sleep. If you have trouble shutting off your mind before bedtime, find a quiet space, sweep Night Fix Enzyme Treatment over your skin, then cup your hands over your nose to take three deep, relaxing breaths. Turn on an app like Headspace or Daily Calm for a quick 5-10 minutes of simple yet effective mindful meditation.
