The Midnight Recovery Eye treatment is an easy way to get in the habit — its creamy texture feels luxurious on the skin and, since it’s meant to be used in the evening, you don’t need to worry about it feeling too heavy during the day.

Ace your base

Going foundation-free is a daunting idea. But lately, influencers and beauty gurus have been tossing aside their trusty base makeup and baring it all. Some say that in doing so, the chance of breakouts will be lessened and it also helps us refocus our priorities to skincare. Instead of covering up our skin troubles, it’s time to work on improving what we’re trying to conceal in the first place. Here are the steps you can take so you can look fresh without foundation.

Identify your problem areas

Whenever we use foundation, we tend to dismiss breakouts and hyperpigmentation. After all, they can just be covered up, so why bother? The thing is, concealing is just a band-aid solution and the better route is to address our problem areas. So first things first, you have to assess your skin condition. Does it tend to break out on the T-Zone area? Are you prone to developing dark spots? These are the things you should consider so you’ll know what products you should incorporate into your routine.

Explore the power of facial oils

Not long ago, facial oils were ignored in favor of astringents and oil-free formulations. But now, they’re finally getting the recognition they deserve. Whatever your skin type is (yes, even oily-skinned gals), you can benefit from the power of facial oils. They can even regulate sebum production as facial oils help lock in hydration, meaning our skin won’t produce as much oil because it’s already well hydrated.

There are various facial oils on the market and some of the most popular ones used for skincare are rosehip, tea tree and tamanu oils. If you’re looking for one that can diminish scarring or dark spots, the rosehip oil is your best bet. It has the formidable combination of vitamin A and C which work together to stimulate cell turnover. While tea tree and Tamanu oils can help with acne because of their antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Aside from these two facial oils, you’ll also find unique blends that combine different complementary types of oils. These formulas can be very powerful in strengthening the skin’s defenses against damaging free radicals and other environmental aggressors while also treating other areas of concern at the same time. Talk about hitting two birds with one stone! With continued use of facial oils, you can expect the skin to be healthier and more radiant.

Load up on Vitamin C

Topically applying vitamin C can do wonders for the skin. It minimizes the appearance of pores, prevents the formation of fine lines and boosts skin rejuvenation. Look for products that use stable forms of vitamin C like L-ascorbic Acid, Ascorbyl Glucoside or THD Ascorbate which are great at preventing fine less and are less likely to irritate sensitive skin. For those with deep-set dark spots and discolorations, you can try products with potent vitamin C derivatives to help with hyperpigmentation. You should also take note of the packaging. Vitamin C skincare products should be stored in opaque bottles to protect the formula from light exposure and preserve its potency.

Just a word of caution, don’t mix vitamin C skincare with niacinamide and retinol products as they will cancel each other out. To be sure of product combinations, visit any Kiehl’s branch to have a personalized skincare consultation.

Hydrate

It takes more than exfoliation to maintain smooth skin, you’ll also need to hydrate regularly. For best results, pick a retexturizing moisturizer that can penetrate the deep layers of your skin to seal in moisture. Some of the best hydrating ingredients are plant-based glycerin, hyaluronic acid and dimethicone.

Use skin tints

When it comes to achieving a healthy glow, there’s really no substitute for a good night’s sleep and balanced lifestyle. But sometimes, we can’t help but be lost in the hustle. When this happens, stress can cause our skin to look lackluster and we may even experience breakouts. Before you reach for another bottle of foundation, try using skin tints first. It may not give you a full coverage but its lightweight consistency can still camouflage some imperfections without blocking pores. Just stick to good skincare habits and your complexion will bounce back eventually.

From 10 steps to 4

When it comes to skincare, more isn’t always better. While indulging in a 10-step skincare routine certainly feels pampering, it’s not absolutely necessary to follow each step to achieve good, glowing complexion. In some cases, piling on numerous products can even lead to clogged pores. Instead of slathering serums after serums, you should focus on finding the right products for your skin type and lifestyle. It’s all about quality over quantity! And by simplifying your skincare routine, you can also save time and money. Here’s how you can do it.

Step 1: Clean

Aside from its ability to effectively remove impurities, another factor that you should consider when choosing a cleanser is its compatibility with your skin. Foam formulas work best for oily skin types as they cleanse the skin without stripping away moisture. You should look for cleansers that produces dense foam as they are great at lifting away impurities while preventing them from going back to the skin while rinsing. On the other hand, dry-skinned gals can benefit from rich, foaming gel-lotion cleansers to nourish their skin with hydrating ingredients like cucumber extract and glycerin.

After cleansing, apply toner onto the skin to ensure that all dirt and makeup are removed. Toner also works as a bridge to prep your skin for the next step. We recommend toners with soothing properties to restore the skin’s pH balance and protect the skin barrier.

Step 2: Treat

Whether it’s treating acne or diminishing hyperpigmentation, each of us has unique skin concerns that we want to address. That’s where serums and specialised facials oils come in. These ultra potent formulas have concentrated, active ingredients to target specific needs. Need to get rid of acne scars? Go for a serum with activated vitamin C and plant extracts to help fade dark spots. Or maybe you need a skin booster to achieve plumper skin? Then, serums with yeast extracts, antioxidant and humectants are your heroes. The key is identifying your problem areas and picking the right formula to combat them.

Step 3: Moisturise

Moisturising your skin after applying serum isn’t just for hydration purposes. It’s also to seal in the ingredients so that it can penetrate the skin deeper, increasing its efficacy. In general, lightweight moisturisers or hyaluronic-infused creams are best for our humid tropical weather. Don’t forget to give your eyes some lovin’ too. Make it a habit to use eye creams in the morning and evening to treat puffy eyes and diminish fine lines.

Step 4: Sunblock (AM only)

Putting on sunscreen every morning may feel like a drag, especially if you’re strapped for time. But trust us, in the long run, your diligence will pay off. Prevent premature aging by choosing a broad-spectrum sunscreen that will protect you both from UVA and UVB rays. Pick one that’s non-comedogenic and leaves a velvety matte finish so you can layer on your makeup with ease.

Consult with an expert

Streamlining your skincare routine means that you should be extra vigilant in choosing the right products for your complexion. But don’t let that stress you out, leave all the worries behind and just consult with an expert. You can visit any Kiehl’s branch (link to page with all Kiehl’s branches) and ask for a personalised skincare consultation. We even provide samples so you can test it out and see the results for yourself.

To moisturize or not to moisturize? That is the question.

Lately, there’s been an ongoing debate on whether moisturizers are actually beneficial or just a waste of money. Until recently, nobody has really questioned the need for moisturizers and come to think of it, a jar of face cream is probably the first skincare item we’ve owned as teenagers. Moisturizing your face used to be a no-brainer but now skincare junkies are beginning to have doubts.

Some are saying that the effects of moisturizers are just superficial and is not really addressing the root of the problem. While others are adamant that they’re essential to maintaining healthy skin. The beauty community has never been this divided. So do you really need to moisturize? Unfortunately, the answer isn’t as simple as a yes or no. Here’s what you should know.

Dry skin is not the same as dehydrated skin

We often categorize our complexion into three main types: oily, dry and normal. So what’s dehydrated skin and how is it different from having dry skin? The easiest way to differentiate the two is to think of dehydrated skin as mere temporary condition and dry skin as a trait. You can be genetically predisposed to have dry skin and produce very little oil which makes you prone to flaking. On the other hand, dehydrated skin is a result of certain actions and other environmental factors. Usually, the tell-tale signs of dehydrated skin are increased sebum production, feeling of tightness and dull complexion. It’s important to know the difference so you can determine which is the best course of action you should take.

Dehydrated skin may be caused by a damaged skin barrier

As the name itself suggests, dehydrated skin lacks hydration. And more often than not, it all boils down to increased Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL). It means that because your natural barrier is weakened, the skin is having a hard time holding on to water to keep itself hydrated. To compromise, the skin produces more oil which can lead to acne. Yikes!

Occlusive moisturizers are great for locking in hydration

So what are occlusive moisturizers? These are the ones that prevents TEWL from happening by acting like a cover to seal in the serum and other hydrating ingredients. This ensures that other skincare products with lighter molecules penetrate the skin and won’t just evaporate.

If you’ve determined that you indeed have dehydrated skin, the first thing you should do is to evaluate your current skincare habits. Get rid of astringents and harsh scrubs, and instead opt for gentle cleansing formulas. You may also need to tone down your use of AHA/BHA products to once a week.

The next step is to repair your skin barrier by applying skin-identical ingredients such as lipids and humectants like niacinamide, squalene and hyaluronic acid. Lastly, prevent water loss by using occlusive moisturizers. The most effective ones are those with nourishing butter like shea but of course, for comfort, a lightweight, occlusive moisturizer with silicones like dimethicone is a better option.

Dry skin can benefit from light-textured moisturizers

The main argument against moisturizers is that it doesn’t really do anything aside from temporarily smoothening out flaky skin. While that may be true, it’s not a reason to banish moisturizers from your routine. Aside from controlling TEWL, light-textured moisturizers enriched with moisture-replenishing properties can also give comfort and smoothen the complexion so that makeup can sit well on the skin. The only problem is when we start to just rely on moisturizers and forget to address the underlying concern.

Listen to your skin

The answer to whether you should moisturize or not largely depends on what your skin condition is telling you. As previously mentioned, if you have dehydrated and/or dry skin certain moisturizers can help. In general, facial creams loaded with moisturizing ingredients that can provide comfort and help with flakiness best suit those with dry skin.

On the other hand, someone with oily skin should be wary about rich creams that may clog pores and that’s why lightweight gel creams would be the most compatible for this skin type. Those with combination skin can also use gel creams but should remember to do some spot treatments for their dry areas.

However, if you think that your skin has a healthy skin barrier and already feels fine with just the help of a few serums and acids then you can skip it. After all, it’s about what your skin needs.

Get that glow

Remember when we used to be into the matte look and would immediately blot any trace of shine? But times have changed and now we’ve got new skin goals. Enter the glass skin, a trend that started when Los Angeles-based makeup artist Ellie Choi posted selfies showcasing her unbelievably luminous and smooth skin. It’s so clear and even-toned that it looks almost translucent.

To say that beauty-loving gals are obsessing on how to achieve glass skin is an understatement. From illuminating powders to highlighters, makeup seems to be the express ticket to achieving that elusive poreless-like skin. But if you really want that “lit from within” look, you’ve got to work on your skincare. One specific ingredient that can help you get that glass skin is vitamin C. What are the benefits and how to properly use it? Let’s talk about that now.

It treats discoloration

Having that flawless, even-toned skin is essential if you want to sport glass skin. Instead of using heavy duty concealer, go for vitamin C serums instead. Powerful vitamin C derivatives are a godsend when it comes to fading dark spots. Since it’s an exfoliant, it aids the skin’s natural regeneration process and over time, lifts the old, discolored skin. At the same time, vitamin C can also hinder melanin production, meaning less discoloration with continued use.

It prevents signs of aging

YOUNGER SKIN

We don’t really see it coming because it’s invisible to the naked eye but free radicals are very damaging to our skin’s health and contribute to early signs of visible aging. It can be found in UVA/UVB rays, cigarette smoke, pollution among other things. To counter this we need to load up on antioxidants and the good news is that vitamin C is one of the most potent ones, making it a good preventative product to avoid premature aging.

L-ascorbic is your best bet

Vitamin C comes in many forms but your best bets are products that use L-ascorbic. It has the most research so you can be sure that it’s stable and safe even for those with sensitive skin. It’s not easy to find well-formulated vitamin C serums, so it’s best to get yours from reputable skincare brands. Usually, those that combine vitamin C with other ingredients like vitamin E, ferulic acid or Hyaluronic acid that can enhance its potency and absorption are good picks.

What to watch out for

When shopping for vitamin C serums, you have to take note of the packaging. It has to be completely opaque and airtight, the less exposure to sunlight and air, the better. Otherwise, it can easily become discolored and lose its potency.

Besides the storage, you also need to watch out for products in your current skincare routine that can cancel the effect of vitamin C or worse irritate your skin. Some of the ingredients that you should never use with vitamin C are retinol, niacinamide, AHA/BHA, benzoyl peroxide. Although there is a recent development that disputes the incompatibility of niacinamide and vitamin C, if you have sensitive skin you still shouldn’t risk it.

How to incorporate vitamin C into your skincare routine

In most cases, vitamin C can be used both during the daytime and nighttime. In the morning, apply the serum either as a spot treatment or all over your face after cleansing. Never forget to layer sun protection right after! Since vitamin C has photoprotective properties, it will give you that extra protection against premature aging due to UV rays. During your nighttime routine, vitamin C should be applied after cleansing and toning but before moisturizers for optimal absorption.
