How to Reset the Skin

Resetting your skin with a skincare routine is like giving it a fresh start, especially after periods of neglect, stress, or environmental changes that may have left it feeling unbalanced, dull, or breakout-prone.

Here's how to hit the reset button on your skin:

(1) Simplify your routine. Temporarily strip your skincare routine back to the basics: a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF during the day. This allows your skin to recalibrate without the stress of processing multiple active ingredients.

(2) Gentle cleansing. Choose a gentle, sulfate-free cleanser that won't strip your skin of its natural oils. Cleansing both in the morning and evening helps prepare your skin for the additional steps in your routine.

(3) Hydration. For dry skin, reintroduce hydration with a hyaluronic acid serum followed by a natural moisturizer for dry skin. Hyaluronic acid is excellent for pulling moisture into the skin, and a good moisturizer will lock it in. For oily skin types, opt for a lightweight, non-comedogenic formula.

(4) Exfoliate wisely. Once your skin has had a chance to settle, introduce a gentle exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and reveal brighter, smoother skin. Choose a product suited to your skin type—chemical exfoliants like AHAs and BHAs are generally more gentle than physical scrubs.

(5) Incorporate antioxidants. Antioxidants like vitamin C can help protect your skin from environmental aggressors, brighten the complexion, and support healthy collagen production. Start with a low concentration and use it in the morning under your sunscreen.

(6) Soothe and repair. Incorporate natural skincare products with ingredients like niacinamide, ceramides, and peptides. Niacinamide can help soothe inflammation, regulate oil production, and strengthen the skin barrier, while ceramides and peptides support skin repair and hydration.

(7) Listen to your skin. Pay close attention to how your skin reacts to each new product or step you introduce. If you notice irritation or breakouts, step back and reassess. Your skin's needs can change over time, and what worked in the past may not be suitable now.

(8) Consider professional help. If you're unsure about your skin type or the best products for your skin, consulting with a dermatologist or a licensed esthetician can provide personalized advice and product recommendations. Resetting your skin is about going back to basics, being gentle with your skincare choices, and gradually building up to a more comprehensive routine as your skin's health improves.
