7 Must-Have Skincare Products for Healthy, Glowing Skin

Skincare products have exploded over the past couple of years, mostly driven by marketers taking advantage of people’s insecurities. While skincare is an important part of your hygiene, it shouldn’t be influenced by trends and expensive products. There are valid skincare concerns such as acne, sun damage, dryness and sensitivity that many people are desperate to treat. The good news is that it’s easier than you think and it doesn’t have to take a huge chunk of your monthly budget.

In fact, with just these 7 skincare products, you could achieve healthy, glowing skin that will have everyone begging for your secret.


Washing your face is the first step in every skincare routine. Our faces produce sebum throughout the day, which can mix with environmental pollutants and dead skin cells to create the perfect environment for acne to thrive. By washing your face at least once a day, you’re clearing out all that dirt, leaving your skin fresh and ready to absorb your other products.

It’s important to choose a cleanser that is gentle and that doesn’t strip your skin of necessary moisture. We recommend the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, which contains moisture-replenishing hyaluronic acid and ceramides.


Our skin’s top layer is made up of skin cells that are regularly generated and then die off. Cleansing alone is not enough to get rid of the dead skin cells left on our skin and they can lead to dry and dull-looking skin after a while. Exfoliating helps shed all the dead skin cells, revealing a new radiant layer. Thankfully, this isn’t something you have to do every day – dermatologists recommend that you exfoliate your skin once a week for the best results.

We recommend the Clean & Clear Exfoliating Scrub, which gets deep into your pores to remove stubborn oil, dirt, and makeup in addition to dead skin cells.


A good moisturizer is essential for keeping your skin looking healthy throughout the day. As mentioned earlier, sometimes cleansers can strip our skin of necessary hydration, which a moisturizer can reverse. Moisturizers come in all different consistencies, designed for different skin types. Light, serum-y cleansers are perfect for people with oily skin, while creamy cleansers are ideal for normal to dry skin. Some moisturizers pack in extra active ingredients to target concerns such as acne and eczema – you can even find moisturizers that double as sunscreens.

We recommend the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, which is both non-comedogenic (it won’t clog your pores) and is approved by the National Eczema Association.

Eye Serum

The delicate skin around your eyes requires special care. An eye serum can address concerns like fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. Look for a serum that is lightweight and formulated to target these specific issues. Applying an eye serum in your skincare routine can help rejuvenate and brighten the eye area, making you appear more awake and youthful.

We recommend the Cetaphil Eye Serum, which includes hyaluronic acid, peptides, vitamin B5 and antioxidant-rich vitamin E to fight dark circles and leave you looking younger.


One of the most crucial steps in any skincare routine is applying sunscreen. Sun damage can lead to premature aging, dark spots, and even skin cancer. Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 protects your skin from harmful UV rays. Remember to apply sunscreen every morning, even on cloudy days, and reapply throughout the day if you’re spending time outdoors.

We recommend the La Roche Posay Sunscreen Anthelios 60 Face & Body sunscreen, which has an impressive SPF 60 and absorbs easily into your skin without leaving an unsightly white cast.


Treating your skin with a mask can provide additional benefits beyond your regular routine. Different masks address various concerns, such as hydration, pore cleansing, and brightening. Consider using a clay mask for deep cleansing or a sheet mask for an instant boost of hydration. Incorporating a mask into your skincare routine once or twice a week can give your skin a noticeable radiance and suppleness.

We recommend the Yes To Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask, which uses activated charcoal to draw out excess oil and impurities.

Lip Balm

Lips are the most neglected part of our faces, even though they dry out the quickest. Unlike the rest of your face, your lips have a much thinner layer of skin which means they lose moisture very easily. Over time, dry lips can darken, toughen, and even become prone to painful tears. A nourishing lip balm helps keep your lips soft and moisturized. Look for a balm enriched with natural ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, or beeswax. Regular application will ensure your lips feel and look their best.

We recommend O’keeffe’s Lip Repair, which is specially formulated for extremely dry lips but can be used by everyone.
