Dermatologist Approved Skin Brightening Routine
Still struggling to find that golden skincare routine? There is so much information out there that can be overwhelming to someone who is new to skincare. But, we are going to share with you our go-to skincare routine with the Dermatologist's stamp of approval.
This routine consists of four easy steps that can be guidelines for your morning and night routine. This consists of a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer. These products and ingredients can vary depending on your trouble areas and what you want to improve about your skin. For this scenario, we are going to be focusing on brightening and hydrating the skin!
First, a cleanser. A cleanser is always necessary before starting the rest of your skincare routine. When completing your routine, you need clean skin as a base before adding your important skincare products. When focusing on hydrating and brightening the face, opt for an oil or cream base cleanser. We recommend trying out the “Perfect Cleansing Oil” from Paula's Choice. Their sunflower and coconut oil-based cleanser hydrates & nourish your skin. This cleanser is perfect for all skin types and can be used in the AM/PM.
Next, a toner. This step is made to gently refresh but not strip the skin of the moisture that you just applied. The toner allows your skin to drink up your post-cleansing moisturizer and any other skin treatments that you may apply. This will help keep your skin looking bouncy and hydrated. We recommend trying out the “Coenzyme Q10 Toner” from NourishMax. This toner is powered by CoQ10 which is a key ingredient in Nadia’s Skincare line. This potent antioxidant helps to fight free radical damage, making it the perfect first layer in a skincare routine.
Moving on to, your serum. This is arguably the most important step in your routine. A quality serum is a must when it comes to skin health. Serums can do a variety of different things, but NADIA’s Power Serum targets fine lines and wrinkles, protects from harmful UV rays, and improves texture and tone. Our Power Serum’s star ingredient is NAD+. This molecule is essential to the health of mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell, and one of the hallmarks of youth. As we get older, NAD+ levels decline with age, and studies have shown that raising levels of NAD+ can restore youth to cells. If you invest in any step of your routine, let it be this one!
Lastly, the moisturizer. Now, you can have different moisturizers for different times of the day. A moisturizer of some sort is important because it's the last step to really seal all the moisture in your pores leaving your skin feeling lush. There are thicker moisturizers and creams for the night and thinner formulas for the daytime! Fortunately, NADIA has both!
Our Restorative Night Cream with NAD+ has a rich texture that absorbs rapidly, moisturizes deeply, and leaves the skin soft and glowing. Ingredients such as CoQ10 and Vitamin E work to nourish and protect the skin, while glycolic acid promotes cellular turnover and collagen production.
Our Nourishing Day Cream with NAD+ is a lightweight moisturizer with a satiny texture. Our blend of NAD+, Vitamin E, and Green Tea extract work together to deliver hydration and antioxidants that nourish, support, and protect skin from the inside out. This non-greasy formula is perfect for use underneath makeup or sunscreen.
