The Easiest Ways to Improve Your Skincare Routine

It’s time to elevate your skincare routine. But don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than you thought it would be thanks to expert tips and our Vital Proteins collagen products. Keep reading and start refining your skincare regimen today.

The Easiest Ways to Improve Your Skincare Routine

Always Wash Your Face

It’s never a good idea to go to bed with a face full of makeup. It's important to rid your skin of pore-clogging products before going to sleep. And no, we’re not just talking about using a makeup remover wipe. A wipe is never enough and instead just moves the makeup around your face instead of cleaning it off entirely. Using a gentle cleanser will do the trick.

Another important tip to keep in mind: wash your hands before you even think of touching your face during your skincare routine.

… and While You're at it, Wash Your Pillowcases, Too

Another reason you should be washing your sheets and pillowcases more often than you think: dirty pillowcases can lead to breakouts. Why? Because they accumulate oil, bacteria, and dirt, which your skin is coming in contact with once your cheek hits that pillow.

Drink Collagen Water™!

Proper hydration is one of the keys to a glowing complexion. Vital Proteins decided to give your water a bit of a makeover, courtesy of collagen. This delicious, light, and refreshing water provides all the benefits of collagen to help your body naturally restore and revitalize on the go. Collagen Water™ is made with the juice of real fruit and includes 3g of sugar or less per bottle. It's also free of gluten, dairy, artificial flavors, and sweeteners.

Remember to Exfoliate

Regularly exfoliating – we’re talking two to three times a week – is an important step in your skincare routine. Why? Because it helps to “refresh” your complexion and helps to remove dead skin cells. The key is to be gentle and not to over-exfoliate (i.e. doing it daily.) Follow it up with moisturizer to lock in hydration.

Be Consistent

“The easiest way to improve your skincare routine is to be consistent. Expecting yourself to do 20 steps every day isn't realistic. Instead, simplify your daily routine and do heavy lifting whenever you have time,” advises Danielle Lewis, a Wander Beauty Global Brand Educator. “I do two skincare 'deep dives' every week. The first one is ‘Spa Sundays’ and involves me giving my skin all of the love with tons of treatments, masks and exfoliants. I do the same in-depth routine on ‘Wellness Wednesdays’ to give my skin a mid-week pick-me-up. This helps to improve my routine because it ensures that I get all of the benefits without having to do each step every day.”
