Welcome to Routine Week—a time and space dedicated to curated routines that serve a skincare purpose. Whether you're eager to target fine lines and wrinkles or are aiming to combat dull skin, we teamed up with our very own Global Skincare Ambassador Julia Barna to bring you five different routines that speak to all skin types and concerns. First on the list? An anti-aging routine to help target fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture and tone.

Step One: Cleansing Balm

Melt the day away without stripping the skin. A gentle cleanser formulated with hydrators such as Avocado Oil and Juniper Oil that help to dissolve makeup and environmental pollutants while replenishing protective lipids to reinforce the skin's moisture barrier. 

Step Two: Daily Vitamin C Serum

A lightweight and hydrating Vitamin C serum that helps stimulate collagen and fade uneven skin tone and discoloration. Use during the day to brighten the skin and neutralize free radicals, which are environmental factors that damage cellular health. 

Step Three: Nightly Retinol Serum

A gentler form of retinol, this effectively helps stimulate collagen, resurface skin, increase cell turnover, and treat congestion. It targets the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven tone, texture, and dull skin without irritation or downtime. Use on clean, dry skin in the evening to help encourage cellular turnover, promoting visibly bright, plump skin.

Step Four: Moisture Rich Balm

Use morning and night. A concentrated, nutrient-rich melting balm that deeply moisturizes and soothes skin. Formulated with fatty acids like Sea Buckthorn Oil to help support collagen production and protect skin’s natural moisture barrier while delivering an unmatched glow.  Hydration is the key to healthy, youthful skin. 

Step Five: Hydra Eye Balm

Smooths and hydrates the delicate eye area and reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark circles.
