Why are routines important?
They say you have to do something 21 times in a row in order for it to become a habit. You want to become a gym rat? Go for 21 days. You want to drink more water? Start today, and get to 21 days. Olympic golfer Lexi Thompson, the founder of Lexi Skin knows all about routines – she trains every day to be the best athlete she possibly can be, while eating right and taking care of her health. That’s why at Lexi Skin, we believe that routines are critically important, especially when it comes to your skincare.
Do you make your bed every morning? (Why… because it just feels good!) Your morning ritual is the springboard for the rest of your day. If you keep hitting “snooze” and you rush out the door with a coffee in hand, you might not be making time to care for your skin. At the very least, washing your face in the morning frees it from sweat and impurities released while you sleep. Even if you skip the shower before heading out the door, make washing your face a “must do” as you start your day.
Washing your face is just a primer for the rest of your skincare routine. After you wash your face or shower, you’ll want to restore your skin’s moisture and address the different needs of the parts of your body. Smoothing on eye cream, face cream and neck cream only takes minutes and puts you on the road to healthier, younger-looking skin. Can’t you spare a few minutes each day to get your GLOW on?
And your poor hands! Think of all they do for you. Typing, washing dishes, driving, doing food prep, gardening, lifting weights, maybe even changing diapers? Don’t they deserve some extra TLC? Think about your daily routine and put some Hand Cream wherever it will help you the most. In the car? Next to the sink? On your desk at work? Your hands will love the extra moisture and you’ll love the soothing aroma. You’ll want to apply it all day, but one or two times is enough!
How about those tootsies? Just like our hands, these babies take a beating! We run around barefoot - even outdoors. We squeeze into cute shoes, just because they’re cute. We pummel them on the treadmill. Well, it’s time to say “thank you” to your feet and give them some moisturizing attention. Our non-greasy formula can be applied in the morning and you won’t be sliding out of your shoes… or you can treat yourself to a little foot massage before sliding in between your sheets. However you decide to put foot care into your routine – morning or night – your soft, refreshed feet will love it.
And don’t even get us started on washing your face before bed. All day your face has been exposed to impurities like smoke, exhaust fumes, maybe even the subway (ewwww!) And if you wear makeup, that’s an even greater reason to cleanse your skin and let it breathe while you sleep. Wash away makeup, sweat and the stress of the day before you hit the pillow. Every. Single. Night. No excuses!
Rethink your routine! Make these steps part of your day and you’ll see a noticeable difference in your skin’s appearance.
