5 Important Benefits of Having a Consistent Skin Care Routine
There’s something comforting about my bedtime beauty routine. Once I massage my facial cleanser into my skin, it is as if I am washing away any stress from the day. Those few minutes spent on pampering actually come with other perks. In fact, there are several benefits to having a consistent skin care routine.
Having a consistent skin care routine will help your skin look better, feel better -- and with Seed, you'll have ingredients that do better.
1. Your skin will be in better condition.
You change the oil in your car every few months in order to properly maintain it. You know that routine maintenance is a priority to extend the life of your car. You need to respect your skin the same way.
For many of us, we skip steps in our routine because we think it’ll take too long. We are all stretched for time. Our Advanced Botanicals Daily Regimen, though, will be a staple in your routine and it only takes a couple minutes. Faithfully keeping a skin care routine will help to reduce the appearance of dullness and lines, as well as help with oiliness and improve the clarity of you skin.
2. Your skin will work harder for you.
It might sound silly, but it’s true. When you take care of your skin, your skin will take care of you. Did you know that your skin is actually working hard while you sleep to regenerate? Cell turnover is faster at night and this allows your products to do their job more efficiently. If you are careful and make a point to cleanse your skin and remove your makeup every night, your skin will be better able to repair itself, while allowing moisturizer to absorb more deeply.
3. Your youthful glow will start to come back.
Dullness. At some point, most of us will notice a decrease in skin radiance. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. Cell turnover slows down as we age, making skin look duller. After cleansing, apply a gentle toner to remove any last traces of cleanser, help restore skin pH, and prep the skin for your moisturizer or treatments. Seed Advanced Botanicals Facial Toner is available in Lemon Balm or Cucumber and will become a fast favorite in your beauty arsenal. Be consistent, as over time your skin will look fresh and healthy once more.
4. With consistency comes visible results.
How many of you have purchased the latest skin care item promising results only to use it a couple of times before declaring it ineffective? People get so caught up in the notion of miracle ingredients or finding the fountain of youth that they expect instant results. Dramatic results will not happen overnight. It can often take weeks of consistent use for noticeable results to happen. The key to seeing those changes is to stick to your skin care routine.
5. Those results you’re beginning to see? They will be easier to maintain.
I like to think of a skin care routine like an exercise routine. When you first start your exercise routine, you might not see results those first few days. Once your routine is established, you take notice. You’ll begin to think, “Wow. Look at the definition in my waist.” When you stick with that exercise plan, you’ll continue to notice changes in your body and if you keep at it, you will be able to maintain those changes. The same is true with a consistent skin care regimen. Your skin will continue to look healthy and refreshed as long as you don’t give up on the routine.

Did you know that this cold, dry winter weather can have a major impact on your skin care routine? Our friends near the Great Lakes are seeing significant amounts of snowfall.

Itchiness and a tight feeling are common skin issues related to dry air, but there are some skin care tips you can use to help tackle the problem.
- Be gentle on your skin. When you dry off after bathing, be sure to pat your skin dry. Don’t rub.
- Always follow your shower or bath with a rich cream layered over body oil.
- Look for cream formulations instead of lotions and fluids for facial hydration.
- Avoid ingredients such as alcohol and sulfates, which will cause more dryness.
