Self-care is a balance between physical and mental, and the new year consistently reminds us of the importance of both. But when you’re starting to care for your physical side, it can be difficult to know where to begin. So start by caring for your outermost layer: your skin. Aesthetic nurse Melanie Fulton-Ruiz of La Vraie Beauté says to focus on finding products that make your skin healthy and resilient, able to withstand the damaging effects it encounters every day. Here are four skincare essentials that she recommends to give you beautiful skin all year long.
Fulton-Ruiz starts off strong with the Plated SkinScience DAILY Serum, which she says is “designed for the most challenging skin needs.” This concentrated serum builds collagen and elastin and works to diminish the appearance of redness, brown spots, and wrinkles. Her second recommendation focused on the neck and jawline. Revision Skincare’s Nectifirm is a great product that helps make for a firmer jawline. Recommendations three and four are a combo of sorts: using Environ Vitamin A, C, & E Body Oil with Environ Body Essentia Derma-Lac Lotion are one-two punch of hydration for rough and dry skin. Ruiz says, “These two products in combination are also excellent for dry rough skin on the body including feet, elbows, and knees.”
