Why January is the Perfect Time to Start a New Skincare Routine
January is long known as the month of new beginnings. A fresh start. A new year. A new you. It’s the time of year when you are most excited about exploring new things or bringing new life to old routines. Skincare easily falls into that thought process—especially if you’ve been using the same old routine for years now. Starting anew can help you get glowing again.
While a facial may be a great way to kick off 2022, the fact remains that skincare starts at home. If you’ve been using drugstore lines, now is the time to switch to something tested and approved: CTRL Cosmetics. If you’ve been putting off trying something new because you have sensitive skin, meet CTRL Cosmetics. We’re formulated for all skin types—even sensitive skin.
If you’re ready but you don’t know where to start, we’re here to help. Let’s kick things off with this routine:
Start with a cleanser. Daily Refresh Cleansing Gel is gentle enough to remove traces of impurities, makeup and dirt, leaving the skin clean and supple. But because it’s rich in vitamins, it doesn’t strip skin of the good stuff it needs to stay balanced.
Polish your skin. A good scrub is perfect for exfoliating. But if you have sensitive skin, you need one that is going to be gentle to your face. That’s where Rejuvenation Facial Polish comes in. Rejuvenation is safe enough for the most sensitive of skins. But, with all polishes and scrubs, use no more than two to three times a week to prevent skin from drying out.
Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. Here’s a fact: All skin needs to be moisturized, even oily skin. When your skin dries out, it can cause it to overproduce oil. That overproduction can lead to acne. So, if you’re trying to keep acne at bay, be sure to moisturize. Paradise Smooth Moisturizing Gel is here to help. Use morning and/or night, depending on your needs.
If you’re fighting the signs of aging —or adamantly working to prevent them, Lasting Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Replenish Beautifying Oil are a great next step. They can be applied day and/or night. Or use one for day and the other for night, applying right before bed after cleansing your skin.As always, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have about your skincare needs.
