Cleanse twice

To really help get rid of the dirt your face accumulates during the day and absorb the rest of your regimen, clean your face twice. Use a makeup remover or oil cleanser (like the popular DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, $28) to wipe the makeup from your face, followed by a gentle cleanser to remove dirt and oils left behind. Trust us, your skin will thank you.

Use retinol

Contrary to popular belief, adults still face issues with breakouts (adult acne is real, folks). You may know retinol primarily as an anti-aging ingredient, but it's also a miracle worker when it comes to acne since it helps to normalize skin after breakouts. It aids in skin cell turnover, which means it speeds up the healing process while also helping to keep pores clear. And why not tackle fine lines and zits at the same time? We recommend the Kate Somerville +Retinol Vita C Power Serum, $98, as it also includes complexion-brightening vitamin C.

Aside from keeping your skin from getting dry, moisturizing regularly can minimize acne-causing bacteria and quell inflammations that can lead to premature wrinkling. Moisturizers are meant for everyone to use, regardless of skin type — because it also helps your skin regain the nutrients lost under the sun during the day. To that end, we've been loving Paula's Choice Defense Nightly Reconditioning Moisturizer, $29, since it's packed with nourishing, skin protecting antioxidants.

Take your time

Get the most out of your skin care routine by taking your time. Give your skin at least five minutes to absorb or react to the products before you move on to the next step of your routine — this holds especially true for serums, such as the Peach & Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum, $39. If you're in a rush and you don't have time to go through a lengthy skin routine, keep it simple so your skin still gets the most out of your products.
