Choose a serum that is appropriate for your skin type and concerns, Such as Hyaluronic Intensive, Skin Boost Peptide Elixir, or Willowherb Serum if you are experiencing redness or irritation.
Step 6: Moisturizer
Finish off the routine by applying a moisturizer to your skin. Choose a moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin type, and that can help to seal in moisture and protect your skin from environmental stressors.
This complete routine should be done twice a week, ideally in the evening before bedtime, as it can leave your skin looking a bit red or irritated initially.
Over time, this routine can help to improve the texture and appearance of your skin, leaving it looking brighter, smoother, and more radiant.
