Healthy Skin How-to



We hear a lot of women complaining about uneven, dull-looking skin. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of our personal top tips for revealing your natural radiance!

1.) Exfoliate weekly, cleanse daily. Exfoliating removes the build-up of dead skin cells that accumulate on your face - the culprit of lack-luster skin. Making sure to exfoliate one to two times every week will brighten your skin's appearance. (The Sigma Cleansing and Polishing Tool is just what you need!) Apart from exfoliation, cleansing each day is important to remove makeup and your face’s daily accumulation of bacteria, sweat, dirt and oil.


2.) Tone. A toner removes the excess oil and bacteria that your cleanser might have left behind. A toner can also help to restore the skin’s natural pH balance and are especially helpful for those with oily skin. A splash of cold water can be used in addition to toner to aid in shrinking the appearance of pores.

3.) Moisturize. Moisturizing makes the skin appear soft, supple and hydrated. It can also temporarily eliminate the appearance of fine lines, which ensures a smooth surface prior to applying foundation.

4.) Protect. Dark spots and lines are a direct result of sun exposure. Making sure to use SPF daily, staying out of the sun as much as possible, and wearing protective sunglasses are some of the smartest things you can do for your skin. Start now and your youthful looking self will thank you many years down the road!

5.) Hydrate. Drink 8-10 glasses of water every day to flush out toxins. Without proper hydration, skin can become dry and flaky, resulting in a lack of resilience and an overall dull appearance. Need we say more? - Drink up!

So there you have it – our top tips for achieving healthy skin! Following these tips on a regular basis will not only have your skin looking its best, but will also provide a proper base for flawless makeup application.  

Aside from these five key tips, we also advise cutting back on alcohol and caffeine, and never smoke! But of course you already knew that, right? ;)

Do you have any healthy skin suggestions of your own that we didn’t mention? We’d love to know!

  3. Useful post! A natural ''secret'' that I have is that instead of a toner I use chamomile. My dermatologist suggested me to do so, when I had a breakout during my pregnancy and he didn't allow me to use strong cleansers,toners and creams(like the ones they suggest for acne problems).
    Since then twice a day, after cleansing my face, I apply chamomile with a cotton ball. It hydrates, cleans and keeps my skin healthy!
    Plus, no harmful ingredients!
