Building a self-care ritual around your skincare routine can deliver a cascade of benefits. Some of you may already have well-honed routines that you find ground and calm otherwise hectic days. And a few of you started to tune out when you heard the word “ritual”. We get it. But don’t leave just yet… Ritual doesn’t have to mean insta-filters, candles and 15-20 products lined up in pretty bottles.
Instead, think of a ritual as a way of adding enjoyment to something that needs to be done anyway. Acne-prone skin needs healthy skincare habits and ingredients proven to block DHT, reduce inflammation and increase skin’s renewal.
Reduce Stress: “My skin looks so much better when I’m stressed out”, said NO ONE ever. Create a routine you enjoy and it will be easier to stick with it. Consistency is key to success with Clearogen, particularly in the first 30-45 days of use. The comfort and security of routines and rituals can help provide a respite from life’s hassles and the stress of worrying about your skin’s appearance. Trust in the process to clear active acne and address the root cause of hormonal breakouts so they can become a distant memory for your complexion.
Have a Plan: If your personal skincare routine goes beyond Clearogen’s 3-step system, you need a plan to avoid mixing ingredients that will counteract. Retinols, chemical exfoliants, and moisturizing serums can all be part of your skincare journey. Just space them out and remember, overloading skin with different products won’t speed results. It is more likely to trigger irritation and dryness.
Foam Away: Washing your face isn’t just about cleansing dirt and oils. Enjoy a few minutes screen-free and consider your evening Clearogen routine the start of your blue light break. Reducing stress and exposure to blue light can help you fall asleep faster and achieve a more restful night’s sleep.
Chill Out: Summertime heat has been in full effect with record temperatures recorded across the country. Toss your favorite jade or quartz roller in the freezer, then use it to gently massage your Clearogen acne. Learn more about using a jade roller on acne-prone skin here.
Suit Yourself: Rituals can be simple or complex. Not unlike acne treatment, it is all about finding the combination that works best for you. Add in music, aromatherapy, a little TikTok inspired choreography or a daily affirmation in front of the mirror. Or, stick with Clearogen’s 3-step system plus that all important SPF and call it a day.
When you have acne-prone skin, maintaining a healthy skincare routine should be a priority but it doesn’t have to turn into a time-consuming ordeal.
