Protection For Mature Skin

If you have mature skin, it is essential to avoid drying or irritating ingredients like alcohol and fragrance. Look for vitamin A+E, hyaluronic acid, and natural ingredients such as Astaxanthin, mango, aloe vera, chamomile, and olive oil to help minimize wrinkles and inflammation.

The Codex Antu Protecting and Restoring Bundle contains a gentle gel facial cleanser and brightening day cream with anti-aging antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, oleic acid (from olive oil), and vitamins A, C, and K. These ingredients help to strengthen the skin's barrier while reducing inflammation and aging. In addition, hyaluronic acid holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it fantastic for all skin types, especially mature skin.

For deep cleansing and brightening

Try the Serene Face Cleanser, formulated with antioxidants, olive oil, hemp seed oil, sandalwood oil, aloe, and oatmeal, for a soothing experience without clogging pores. It has a creamy, rich consistency that melts into your skin, giving you brightening and nourishing the skin; it also helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and scars!

How to love your oily skin

You'll want to find clarifying products with natural acids like citric acid, stearic acid, and aloe vera if you have oily skin. These will deeply cleanse and clear your skin without drying it out too much. It is still essential to have a hydrating moisturizer for oily skin; avoid products with heavy oils, like coconut oil. Instead, opt for lightweight or water-based moisturizers that won’t clog your pores. 

This Camphor Cleanser has aloe vera & stearic acid. It helps to balance your skin’s pH, dissolves sebum, and removes surface dead cell build-up, impurities, and pore blockage. We highly recommend this gentle face cleanser for acne-prone skin as well. 

skincare routine for oily skin

Rosemary oil can help balance sebum secretion, which in excess, is the cause of oily skin. It even has anti-bacterial properties. This soothing moisturizer has rosemary oil and hyaluronic acid, making it super moisturizing and great for oily skin!

Salicylic acid is another excellent ingredient that helps break down and clear away the excess oils and sebum on your skin. Be careful not to use it daily; 3 to 4 times a week will suffice.

The Vital Clay Mask contains citric acid, salicylic acid, and kaolin clay, which extracts impurities and excess oil. It also has montmorillonite clay - mineral rich and great for clarifying and detoxing. This treatment also softens and hydrates while minimizing pores and soothing skin irritation. 

Soothe dry skin often.

If you have dry skin, you want velvet nourishing skincare without removing too many natural oils. People with dry skin typically load up on moisturizer, but you may not be aware that your cleansing routine is also essential. Many cleansers are too harsh and dry your skin out even more! Instead, seek out anti-aging creams and luxurious serums with natural oils & plant-based butter that provide instant comfort and deep hydration. Always keep a facial moisturizer with you.

inflammation and kill bacteria without irritating your face. Beneficial ingredients to clear pores are aloe vera, jojoba oil, and tea tree oil. In a perfect world, wash products with the above ingredients will purify your skin and speed up the healing process for breakouts.

Looking for a well-formulated blemish remover?

A great anti-blemish product is the Vital Clay Spot Treatment. This clay-based cream can help extract impurities, reduce inflammation, and even prevent new blemishes, making it great as a preventative treatment. It also contains salicylic acid, a natural acid that cleans excess oil from pores and exfoliates dead skin cells.

If you have dry skin and acne, you’ll want to check out the Līhau Face Mist, which has blue tansy, for a simultaneously hydrating and breakout-fighting toner. As we mentioned in Part 1 of The Ultimate Skincare Guide, blue tansy is a botanical skincare ingredient perfect for dry skin. It even prevents psoriasis and eczema due to its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. 

If you suffer from acne scarring, use the Raw Pracaxi Rejuvenating Oil. It has healing properties that help reduce scarring and restore damaged skin. It is also great for aging skin and reduces fine lines, delivering ultimate hydration and helping with the appearance of skin texture.

Balancing combination skin 

For combination skin, you’ll want a few different types of products. Look for favorite cult moisturizers, nourishing serums for dry skin, and lightweight, water-based formulas for oily areas. Check out our suggestions above for both oily and dry skin. 

moisturizers for sensetive skin

If you want a gentle hydrating cleanser, the Pa'akai Cleansing Cream works for all skin types so that it won’t be too heavy for your oily skin. It contains powerful, active ingredients such as Hawaiian cleansing salt, antioxidant-rich hibiscus, calming chamomile, and rose and seaweed extract to strengthen and renew your skin while accelerating the natural skin repair process.

Hawaiian Beauty Water contains papaya enzymes, hibiscus, and Hawaiian sugar, to exfoliate naturally. This is a chemical exfoliant, so it is not abrasive and gentle enough even for sensitive skin. This works well for combination skin; adjust how often you use it to your skin’s needs. For example, if you are on the drier side, use it only 1-3 times per week, but if you are oilier, it can be used up to 5 times per week. 

If you need something for dryness, an excellent choice would be the Gentle Goddess Bundle, which contains a chamomile and myrrh face serum and an extra nourishing balm to spot-treat your extra dry patches.  


Don't skip sunscreen protection!

And sunscreen is always a vital daily skincare step for all skin types! It is easy to forget, but it is the most critical step to protect your skin and prevent premature aging and skin cancer! Protection from UV rays! We love this powder-based formula because you can quickly dust it over makeup or as the last step of your skincare routine. 


What skin type do I have?

There are a few skin types—normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive. Knowing your skin type is essential, as you can choose the best products and treatments to maintain healthy, glowing skin. To determine your skin type, we run a skin analysis using our high-tech machines.

What skincare products I'm able to use while pregnant?

There are many safe products to use while pregnant. However, when considering a product, be sure the ingredients don’t include retinol, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and hydroquinone, to name a few.

How much skincare is too much?

Skincare is essential, but you can overdo it. The perfect balance of products should leave your skin feeling hydrated and soft to the touch. It shouldn’t feel tight, dry, or “squeaky clean.” We recommend discussing how many products to use with your medical provider/aesthetician.

Do skincare products expire?

Skincare products do not last forever. Once opened, these products have a limited shelf life. Exposure to air and bacteria over time can break them down. If used past the expiration date, the product may not be effective or could cause an adverse reaction.

How long before I start to see results?

Results can vary by individual and what products you are using. How consistent you are with your skincare routine plays a vital role in the success of your results.  Give yourself a baseline of 3-6 months for the skin to go from worse to best. Results may be seen sooner than this baseline.

How to know the difference between a day spa and a med spa?

Many treatments are available at either a day spa or a med spa. A medspa can treat more challenging skin issues, and the providers at a medspa have a background in and are usually licensed to perform medical aesthetic procedures. Another difference that separates the two is that, at a medspa, a medical doctor oversees the treatments.

At what age do I start anti-aging treatments?

When it comes to anti-aging products, especially those that contain antioxidants, the general rule is to start in your early 20s. This is because taking preventative steps in your 20s will keep your skin looking younger in the long run.

I have dark skin; should I use sunscreen?

Darker skin does produce more melanin, but that only protects you up to a point. After that, dark skin can get sunburned and develop skin cancer. Therefore, a good UV sunscreen is critical for all skin types.

Why is my skin so dry/oily?

There could be a few reasons your skin is dry or oily. Genetics is a big reason for your skin type. The other contributing factor is hydration. You must drink plenty of water to help your skin stay healthy and balanced.

Topical application of hydrating lotions/creams, a rich cleansing foam may help combat surface dryness. We advise that you discuss suitable products with your medical provider.

What is the difference between an aesthetician and a dermatologist?

A dermatologist attends medical school and can have 12 to 14 years of advanced education. Aestheticians are specifically trained to focus on skincare and delivering non-invasive procedures.

What skincare products work well with chemotherapy?

The best products to use will keep your skin soothed and well-hydrated. Skin creams that deliver antioxidants to nourish while preventing moisture loss can be very helpful.

What products can I use for acne-prone skin?

You will need specific ingredients to address acne. Depending on the skin type and severity of the skin issue, customize products with different ingredients to tackle acne. Products containing ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide help with acne. However, much more is needed to treat the condition and ensure it never returns completely.

Which skincare lines are best for mature skin?

There are several good products available for mature skin. We recommend products like Immunocologie exfoliating and hydrating lotionBosq essential serum and supplementKusum Cosmetics restorative hydrator serumZiziner Organic Eye Lifting treatment, as well as the Bia Hydrating Eye Serum. These products contain ingredients such as retinoids, hyaluronic acid, and moisturizers, including UV sunscreen.

Where do skin tags come from?

Skin tags usually develop in the folds of your skin. No definitive reason is known for why they develop, but it is thought to be the result of skin friction.

Can I use lime and lemon on my skin?

Both lemons and limes contain ingredients used in some skincare products. However, there has been an increase in the abuse of these fruits in topical applications. Therefore, we do not encourage using products on the skin without regulation from relevant bodies to avoid skin irritation.

Before applying a product to the skin, it is essential to do a patch test first. It would be best if you also ruled out allergic reactions. We advise you to consult your provider, who will recommend safe products for the skin.

What is the number 1 dermatologist recommended brand and What is the #1 skincare brand in the US?

Clear Givings is one of the best e-commerce stores in the USA, providing a wide range of carefully curated personal care collections for men and women. All the products are tested, organic, eco-friendly, free from chemicals, gently work on skin, and are ideal for regular use.

What skincare means?

Skin care is a range of practices that support skin integrity, enhance its appearance, and relieve skin conditions. They can include nutrition, avoidance of excessive sun exposure, and appropriate use of emollients.

What are the 5 basic steps of skin-care?

Some of the important points to keep in mind are -

1) Use products that go with your skin type.

2) Don't forget to treat your lips.

3) Go with organic products.

4) Keep your skin hydrated.

5) Always wear sunscreen.

We hope these product recommendations are helpful and give you a better idea of what to look for when shopping for a clean skin care routine that includes moisturizers, facial serums, facial moisturizers, overnight masks, serum night creams, and anti-aging serums for the best skincare routine.
