Your skin...

is constantly at war with the world. Think about this -

Toners, moisturizers, essence, creams, and ointments all work together to help us replenish and fight back against the imbalances of our day-to-day lives & environments.

Whether it's defending against dryness, UV rays, or even aging - whatever it may be for you - your skin care routine is really just your way of playing defense against life.

And you and I both know that it takes more than just good defense to have great skin. You also have to drink enough water, sleep enough hours, and eat the right foods to really keep your skin supple, nourished and healthy.

Here are two things you definitely don't know about your evening skincare routine that can be the difference between a perfect morning complexion and an unintentionally damaged skin barrier.

60 seconds.

Use it or lose it.

"If you leave your skin bare for more than 60 seconds, moisture will start to evaporate out of the skin, leaving it tight and dry," explains esthetician Renée Rouleau. "Perform your skincare routine quickly, so the moisture in your skin stays put."

One minute is all it takes for a freshly washed face to go from plump & dewy to dry & crispy.

Moisturizers are often applied toward the end of our skincare routines to seal everything in, but if there's less and less moisture to seal in, then it doesn't matter how much product you lather on - dry indoor air will constantly be sapping at what's left of the moisture overnight, disrupting the Zen your skin needs to recover and heal.

I don't know about you, but feeling rushed through my skincare routine is the last thing I want to end my evening on.

The secret? Run a little mist, keep the air around your face humidified, and voilà. 60 seconds becomes as long as you want and as long as you need.

But there's one other thing you need to know that can help you overcome that overnight dryness, regardless of how long it takes for you to go through your evening routine.


Glow with the flow.

Keep a constant stream of mist flowing throughout the night and wake up with that healthy glow you've always thought to be just one of those 'good skin days.'

The longer you sleep, the more time your skin should have to heal, but ...

the longer you're asleep for, the more dehydrated your body & skin become.

Have you ever had a long night of sleep that should have been perfect, and even though you made sure to moisturize, your skin somehow still felt gross in the morning? Meanwhile, there are other times where you've slept less, done less, and felt much better?

If you've ever experienced this, you know that when things get too dry, your skin starts to increase its oil production to try and compensate.

Whether you wake up with some undesired flakes or that oily T-zone, balanced air is the first step in establishing overnight consistency in your routine.



From virus lifespan to allergy relief, there's so much more balanced air can do for you.
