If you’ve been thinking about switching up your classic cleanse, tone, and moisturize routine, you’ll be glad to know that there are three skin care trends emerging in the beauty world that everyone and their mother are already heart-eyed for. The trends? Coffee face scrubs, vitamin C facial serums, and ginseng anti-aging moisturizers. Each of these skin care products has complexion-perfecting benefits. Thinking you might want to get in on these skin care trends while they’re just starting off? Below, we walk you through why you should consider adding these skin care products to your skin care routine and how to do just that. And stay tuned for a coffee scrub, vitamin C serum, and ginseng anti-aging moisturizer from L’Oréal Paris later in 2018!
Crazy for Coffee Scrubs
Coffee scrubs are much like many of the other face scrubs on the market. They utilize mechanical exfoliation to physically remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Coffee particles are used to do the exfoliating. We have three other face scrubs that you can use to exfoliate your complexion. Choose from the options below:
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub: This face scrub leaves skin feeling softer and smoother and looking more refined. Immediately, skin feels smooth and comforted, while skin feels nourished with continued use over time.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub: This face scrub effectively removes dirt, oil, and impurities from the surface of skin and polishes away dead skin. With continued use over time, pores look tighter, unclogged, and less visible.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub: This face scrub gives skin a glowing appearance immediately and leaves skin feeling baby-soft, smooth, and comforted with continued use over time.
To use any of the above face scrubs, smooth a small amount onto dry skin. Then, gently massage the face scrub into your skin with wet fingers and rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use your chosen face scrub three times a week for best results.
Swooning Over Vitamin C Serums
Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid—the pure form of vitamin C) is a natural antioxidant. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, antioxidants are popularly used in skin care products because they have anti-aging benefits. Vitamin C has been shown to have antioxidant qualities when applied topically. Vitamin C can help protect your skin from free radicals, which can lead to visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles and dark spots. So, if you’re looking to put together an anti-aging skin care routine, consider using a vitamin C serum.
Another anti-aging skin care product you can try? Cica cream! Skin’s moisture barrier weakens with age, resulting in greater loss of moisture, more prominent wrinkles, and loss of firmness. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Cicacream Face Moisturizer Pro-Retinol & Centella Asiatica is a lightweight cream that helps strengthen and repair skin barrier to help resist visible signs of aging that a weakened barrier can accentuate. Immediately, skin feels softer, smoother, and more supple and firmness and tone look improved. With continued use over time, skin looks rejuvenated, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced, and clarity improves. Skin barrier is stronger, helping to resist signs of aging with continued use over time as well.
Giddy for Ginseng Moisturizers
Staying on the anti-aging skin care track, we come to our final skin care trend of the day: ginseng anti-aging moisturizers. You’ve likely tried ginseng in your tea, but soon you’re going to be seeing this ingredient in anti-aging skin care products. Here is an easy daily anti-aging skin care routine you can follow including a ginseng cream.
Step 1: Cleanse
The first step in any skin care routine should be washing your face with a facial cleanser, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser, which helps gently exfoliate dead skin cells and enhance skin smoothness and radiance as well as remove all traces of makeup and impurities. Sleeping in your makeup can lead to clogged pores—and that can lead to breakouts—which is why it’s essential to take it all off at the end of the day.
Step 2: Apply Facial Serum
Don’t skip out on facial serum in your anti-aging skin care routine! Now’s the time to reach for your vitamin C serum or the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Concentrated Serum, which helps improve skin smoothness and even out skin tone with continued use over time.
Step 3: Dab on Eye Cream
Pay attention to the delicate skin underneath your eyes, as it can start to show signs of aging like dark circles and crow’s feet first. Look for an eye cream, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream, that can help address the appearance of signs of aging including dark circles and crow’s feet. Gently pat it on underneath your eyes, smoothing it in until absorbed.
Step 4: Smooth on Ginseng Cream
It’s time to reach for your anti-aging ginseng cream! Apply it all over your face, gently massaging it into your skin until absorbed. At night, this should be the end of your skin care routine. In the morning, follow up your moisturizer with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Spending time in the sun sans protection can lead to visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles and dark spots down the road. In addition to wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen, there are a few other steps you should take—limit your amount of time in the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., which are the sun’s peak hours, seek shade when you are outside, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
