AM to PM Beauty Heroes Our Team Stands By

Because we work with beauty brands daily at SkinStore, we’re always exchanging insights and advice—especially as we return back to the office and wonder how some of our teammates have kept their skin and hair looking amazing. Here are a few of the beauty routine essentials we swear by for morning and night, from two of our must-have brands: SkinCeuticals and Slip. 

Our A.M. Essentials 

The Skin-Protecting Pair  

For our morning grind, having good sun protection and anti-pollution skincare is super important to our team. That’s why our favorites include two hero products from SkinCeuticals known for their clinical-grade formulations and high efficacy: C E Ferulic and Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50. 

The C E Ferulic is a gentle yet effective vitamin C serum that shields the skin from age-inducing free radicals, infrared radiation, and ozone pollution. We like to pair it with the brand’s Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50, a 100 percent mineral formula with a sheer tinted finish that enhances skin tone. This high protection zinc oxide sunscreen also contains artemia salina, a plankton extract known to increase skin’s resistance to UV- and heat-induced stress. Studies have shown that the application of topical vitamin C along with sunscreen can provide better protection than sunscreen alone, with vitamin C helping to reduce sunburn cell formation by 40 to 60 percent.  CE Ferulic is now also proven to reduce combined oxidative damage generated by UVA/UVB rays, ozone pollution, and diesel engine exhaust by up to 41%. 

The Secret to Snag-Free Mornings 

Our co-workers who rock their tresses long have been huge fans of Slip’s silk pillowcases, and we can see why they love the brand’s skinnies scrunchies, too. Creating 43% less friction than cotton hair ties and none of the pullings from plastic either, Slip scrunchies help retain the hair’s moisture while preventing snags, bends, and breakage. Our team uses them when doing our 9-to-5 or for keeping our hair away from our faces during our morning beauty routines. 

You can try SkinCeuticals and Slip in our exclusive daytime kits here for elevating your morning beauty routine. 

Our P.M. Must-Haves 

For Better Beauty Sleep 

For after-hours, our team has a variety of nighttime beauty routines they follow to wake up with refreshed skin. Silk has become a must-have to a few teammates for its hypoallergenic, durable softness and anti-aging properties. 

How is silk anti-aging? Pillowcases like Slip’s are significantly less absorbent than other fibers due to silk’s moisture-wicking capabilities, so they can help keep your skincare products on your face, instead of transferring onto your pillow. 

Non-silk pillowcases can also promote face creasing that can lead to the first signs of wrinkles. Silk allows the skin to glide over the surface and reduces friction.. The smooth material has a similar effect on hair, helping to prevent creases, bends, and frizz. 

Restorative Skin Care 

The right evening beauty routine can help boost the skin’s natural time to recover and reverse damage. One of our favorite routine staples is SkinCeuticals’ Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2, an anti-aging cream that improves the texture of the skin while directly addressing age-related lipid loss, repairing the foundation of healthy, glowing skin. It contains an optimal and patented lipid ratio of 2% pure ceramides 1 and 3, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids, which is proven to nourish skin and correct signs of aging 

Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 pairs perfectly with SkinCeuticals Tripeptide-R Neck Repair which features 0.2% pure retinol along with 2.5% tripeptide concentrate and 5% glaucine complex to target the look of lines, crepiness, uneven skin tone, loss of firmness and other signs of neck aging. When used in conjunction with Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2, you get a comprehensive anti-aging approach that allows you to reap the benefits of retinol with less side effects for this delicate skin. 

Another reparative favorite is the A.G.E. Eye Complex for one of the most delicate areas of the face, the eye contour. Many of our teammates love how it combats the most common eye area concerns: fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness. This gem contains optical diffusers to immediately improve the radiance of tired dull-looking eyes. 

Wake up to hydrated skin with one of our exclusive SkinCeuticals x Slip nighttime kits for your best beauty sleep yet. 

Combined together, using SkinCeuticals and Slip has been our experts’ way of elevating their beauty routines from the start to the end of their days. Shop our exclusive SkinCeuticals x Slip bundles here at SkinStore.
