How To Get the Perfect 5 Step Skincare Routine

Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It goes a long way to keep your body safe and regulated. If you want to keep your skin healthy and youthful looking, you will want to look into a skincare routine backed by science. The right daily skincare routine is a great way to improve the health of your skin and continue to maintain that quality. Some people may be intimated by the cost of skincare products. But taking care of your skin is a worthwhile investment that you can integrate into your everyday life; especially when you are using products that actually work.

Why Having a Skincare Routine is Important

There are many factors that support the benefits of keeping a healthy skincare routine. Regularly taking care of your skin can ensure that your skin works better and for a longer amount of time. And there are certain things you should consider if you’re interested in starting a skincare routine:

  • It boosts confidence: Investing in your skin’s health will help give you the confidence to live your best life. And, starting a skincare routine early on, especially as a young person, will help you keep healthy skin even later in life.
  • Your skin sheds every day: Your skin is shedding cells at all times of the day. This means it’s important to take care of it both day and night so the health of your skin is always maintained.
  • Different skin requires different needs: No two people’s skin is exactly alike. What works for one person might not work for someone else. That’s why it’s important to develop a skincare routine that fits your needs.
  • It saves money: Though skincare products may seem expensive, the right products will actually help you save money in the long run. Prevention is the key!  Skin issues such as acne scars, deep wrinkles or discoloration means you will need medical services, along with your products, to correct the damage. This damage will actually be prevented by doing the daily work to keep your skin healthy earlier on.

If you’re looking to find skincare products that you can incorporate into your daily routine, Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging and Wellness has developed a 5 step skincare routine using products that they recommend  through their Smart SCIN Membership Skincare Program for both the AM and the  PM.

Layer Your Skincare – 5 Step Skincare Routine For Healthier, more Radiant Skin


Step 1: Cleanse 

Cleansing your face is incredibly important for BOTH when you get up in the morning and before you go to bed at night. It’s so easy to skip your evening cleanse because you’re tired, but if you do, you’re setting yourself up for clogged pores, skin irritations, allergies, and other skin issues. Ooh la la’s game changing advice below will have you excited to wash your face because it’s so simple!

In the morning….

Use Skinmedica’s Facial Cleanser  which is great for all skin types and leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated. 

Before bed… 

It’s simple!  Use the Colorescience Hydrating Cleansing Cloths to remove any environmental pollutants, excess oil, and make up, and to refresh your skin with ingredients that hydrate and calm and antioxidants that protect.  Leave these wipes right by your toothbrush to remind you how important it is to cleanse at night!

Step 2: Anti-Aging Serum

In the morning AND before bed….

Use Skinmedica’s TNS Advanced + Serum to look 6 years younger in 12 weeks! This is a revolutionary product scientifically proven to improve the appearance of sagging skin, coarse wrinkles, fine lines, skin tone, and texture. TNS Advanced+ is formulated with the most advanced Growth Factor technology to stimulate your body’s collagen production. 

This innovative serum supports rapid, comprehensive skin rejuvenation with significant, noticeable improvements. When used consistently, TNS Advanced+ Serum lifts the appearance of sagging skin and enhances firmness to reclaim smooth, tight and youthful-looking skin. 

Step 3: Treat

Defend all day and repair all night. Get radiant, glowing skin with Lumivive Day and Night. 

In the morning….

LUMIVIVE Day Damage Defense Serum from Skinmedica provides a bio-barrier that protects against blue-light and other environmental aggressors that can damage the skin.

Before bed… 

Apply LUMIVIVE Night Revitalize Repair complex to recharge the skin’s repair process. Lumi Night improves the skin’s ability to repair itself at night leading to brighter, younger looking skin.  

Step 4: Treat & Protect Your Eyes 

In the morning….

Colorscience’s Total Eye 3-in-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35 can be used to visibly improve the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles around the eyes while protecting them from photoaging. The SPF in this product is chemical-free, 100% mineral SPF 35 that defends against UVA/UVB and environmental stressors that contribute to signs of skin aging.

Before bed… 

Colorscience’s Total Eye Concentrate delivers lasting results to the delicate eye area to keep you looking radiant and refreshed. With powerful ingredients, these products work to immediately minimize the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles while delivering lasting results to restore the area around your eyes.

Step 5: Protect 

If there’s one thing you should do for your skin, this is it! 

There’s more to sunscreen than just the SPF. Choosing (and using) the right product to protect your skin is the most important thing you can do to keep it looking young and healthy; but SPF is only one part of the story. Ooh La La recommends Colorescience’s Enviroscreen technology because it’s more than just a sunscreen. Colorescience products do so much more for your skin. They are chemical free, environmentally safe, and pure mineral, to protect from the damaging effects of UVA/UVB, HEV/blue light, Infrared Radiation, and environmental pollution.  Ooh La La recommends replacing your traditional make up with Colorescience because their products not only protect your skin, they also treat imperfections and are elegantly formulated to give your skin a flawless appearance. 

In the morning….

Colorscience’s Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 is a hydrating, antioxidant-rich mineral formula that provides complete protection from environmental aggressors. It’s oil free and hypoallergenic with a weightless texture that blends invisibly into all skin tones.  This is a fan favorite that is more than just a sunscreen!
