Do you ever wonder how your favorite celebrities and superstars keep a constant glow on their skin? From movies to red carpets, it seems that attaining an everlasting glow is possible – if you have the right ingredients. Enter Vitamin C, a powerhouse ingredient for your skin. With tons of benefits, it’s no wonder that it is constantly voted one of the most powerful natural ingredients for your skin.

Using vitamin C is easy and safe because it comes from the earth. Most sources of vitamin C are from citrus fruits and extracts which are then harvested for their brightening compounds. Including vitamin C in products like a dark spot cream will help remove pigmentation which can make skin look duller. In areas without dark spots, vitamin C will help regenerate skin and brighten your complexion so that you have brighter and younger-looking skin.

Optimizing your skin is a delicate balance between using enough of the right products without going overboard. In recent years, skincare routines with 5, 10, and even 15 steps have become incredibly popular. While you may think the more you put on the skin the better it will look and feel, you can often drown your skin with too many products if you are using too much – especially if you are in your 50’s and 60’s.

Having a minimalist skincare routine isn’t a bad thing – in fact, most doctors recommend it. Instead of stacking your bathroom with dozens of products, opt for a simple and streamlined routine that covers all the important bases. The quality of your products is much more important than the quantity so stick with a few proven basics that can help provide excellent results. You can also take the guesswork out of which products you actually need by using a skin care system that is already formulated to work together for the best results!

The good news is taking care of your skin doesn’t need to be a full day process. There are some small easy ways to revive your skin from the winter blues and keep it looking it’s best. Here are some of our favorites that take less than 10 minutes!

Pro Tip: You can also use cold tea bags, spoons or cooling eye masks to add a little extra de-puffing power to your eye area.

Brighten Your Skin Tone

Winter months are especially bad but there is hope! Simply adjusting the way you wash your face can have major impacts on how it looks and feels.

Experts suggest practicing Hydrotherapy on your face. It sounds complicated but is an easy and fast way to brighten your complexion and make your skin look rested. Hydrotherapy exposes your skin to different water temperatures in a short amount of time. We suggest starting with hot water on your face and then after a minute or two, switch to very cold water.

The drastic change in temperature dilates your blood vessels, increasing blood flow, and helps carry necessary nutrients and oxygen back to your skin. The result is a bright, beautiful complexion.

Pro Tip: The peptides in the South Beach Skin Lab – Repair and Release cream also act to increase collagen and elastin production which will give your skin a much brighter, tighter appearance!

Use a Hydrating DIY Face Mask

Thanks to the wonderful world of Pinterest, you can find hundreds of different DIY masks that you can make with natural ingredients you probably already have in your home. These masks are all natural, totally safe and leave your skin looking and feeling AMAZING!
