How To Stack: Evening Skincare Routine
Written by Kerry Benjamin
The best gift you can give your skin is the gift of routine. Committing to a skincare schedule that incorporates a healthy balance of products will ensure glowing skin and lasting results. Rid yourself of the sweat and dirt from the day and set your skin up for some tender love and care throughout the night.
STEP 1: CLEANSE YOUR FACE
Prep your skin with a gentle, non-stripping cleanser like our PREBIOTIC GEL CLEANSER. Gently wash your face and pat dry, leaving a bit of moisture still on your skin. Our Prebiotic Gel Cleanser helps remove dirt, debris and excess oil that has accumulated on your face throughout the day while feeding your skin’s microbiome for clear, balanced skin.
STEP 2: DERMAPLANE
Use your DERMAPLANING EXFOLIATION TOOL once a week to give your complexion an immediate luminous glow. Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliation technique that gently removes peach fuzz and dead skin cells, giving skin an instantly smoother, brighter look.
For Best Practice: Thoroughly dry your skin after cleansing as dermaplaning is most effective on dry skin, and then glide the tool across your face with light feathery strokes to instantly brighten, soften, & smooth.
STEP 3: EXFOLIATE WITH A PEEL
It's time to apply product! Once a week, exfoliate with our TCA LACTIC & GLYCOLIC FACE PEEL. When exfoliating, toss those harsh scrubs and stick to a simple peel. Our TCA Lactic & Glycolic Face Peel is a gentle yet super effective peel that harnesses the power of 5 different acids to truly exfoliate & brighten your skin.
Use our peel twice a week— our peel is self-neutralizing so you can simply brush it on and leave it on. You may notice some peeling the next day, which is completely normal. The peel is accelerating your cell turnover and revealing your hydrated glowing youthful skin underneath.
STEP 4: APPLY A HEALING SERUM
Apply a layer of our EGF ACTIVATING SERUM. Remember— you always want to apply your serums thinnest to thickest. Apply 5-7 drops of our serum to cover your entire face. When applying product to your face and neck, only use a dime-sized portion, as your skin can only absorb so many nutrients at once. Our EGF Activating Serum is loaded with vegan growth factors that will speed up your cellular turnover, boost collagen production to firm your skin, increase the rate of healing, and lift hyperpigmentation.
STEP 5: PLUMP IT UP
Next, plump your skin with moisture. Ideal for all skin types, our HA HYDRATING SERUM is rich in hyaluronic acid, one of the world’s lightest and most effective hydrators. Capable of holding nearly 1,000 times its weight in water, our fast-absorbing form of hyaluronic acid delivers its moisturizing benefits deep within the skin’s vital layers where it quenches dehydration, controls oil, and visibly plumps fine lines all while you sleep.
STEP 6: MICROROLL
Take your skincare ritual to the next level with our MICRONEEDLING SKIN REFINING TOOL. This gentle micro-exfoliating tool softens skin by removing dull, dead cells that sit on the top layer of the skin, giving it a smoother, plumper, and firmer appearance. Our roller also helps minimize the appearance of fine lines, leaving you with luminous, healthy-looking skin.
STEP 7: LOCK IN THAT MOISTURE
Finally, press a few drops of a lightweight face oil like our SHIUNKO BLUSH FACIAL OIL as the last step in your nighttime ritual. When applied as the last step in your regimen, our face oil acts like a protective shield, locking in all the water from your hydrating serums and creams. Our Shiunko Blush Facial Oil is loaded with fermented natural botanicals that deliver a potent dose of nutrients that dramatically reduce redness, visibly fill in fine lines and wrinkles, and strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier to prevent water loss.
