A Step-by-Step Nighttime Skincare Routine & Why it's so Important.
Nov 07, 2023
It’s no secret that having a consistent skincare routine before bed is important. You may be wondering “why is it so important, though?”. Being consistent with your skincare before bed is important for radiant and healthy skin. During the day, our skin can be exposed to a multitude of different environment stressors such as dirt, pollution, and UV rays. The last thing we want is our pores getting clogged and breaking out because we didn’t “wash the day away” before bed. So, when you have a consistent skincare routine before bed, you can ensure that you’re removing any impurities that have accumulated throughout the day. And going a step forward and not just cleansing your face, but using products that will nourish and hydrate your skin overnight while you sleep, can further set you up for radiant and glowing skin!
What Products Should You Use in Your Nighttime Skincare Routine?
Of course the first step to any good skincare routine is using a quality facial cleanser. Just like we said above, throughout the day your skin can pick up various environmental stressors that can cause breakouts such as pollutants and dirt. When you use a gentle yet effective facial cleanser, you can assure that you’re removing these impurities and prepping your skin for the absorption of the subsequent products in your nighttime skincare routine! Using a facial cleanser to remove the impurities that build up throughout the day will also give your skin a chance to breathe at night. Don't ever skip out on cleansing your face with a good facial cleanser, it's an essential step! For a more in depth look at the benefits of facial cleansers, check out our "Top 5 Facial Cleanser Benefits"
2 - Exfoliators
A product that you should be incorporating into your nighttime skincare routine a few times a week is a quality exfoliator. Exfoliating your skin after cleansing takes it a step further to really unclog those pores and get rid of any buildup from not just the environmental factors, but your everyday make up wear and dead skin cells that buildup as well. Remember, we shed skin cells every 2 - 4 weeks, so sloughing off dead skin to make way for brighter healthier skin, is key to achieving radiance. Not only will using an exfoliator help to improve your complexion, but it will further help your skin to absorb the subsequent products in your nighttime skincare routine!
3 - Toners
Using a non drying facial toner as part of your nighttime skincare routine is incredibly beneficial. Not only will using a toner improve the pH balance of your face, but it will also provide extra cleansing and further prep your skin for your subsequent nighttime skincare products! Using a toner can be thought of as the “last step” of the cleansing of your face, and can remove anything that may have been missed when using your facial cleanser weekly exfoliation. Toners can also provide another layer of hydration for your skin before bed, and can even help strengthen the skin barrier. Overall, using a facial toner will help to cleanse, hydrate, balance your pH, and prepare your skin for subsequent before bed skincare products!
4 - Facial Oils & Serums
Using facial oils or serums before bed is so beneficial for your skin and should be a part of your before bed skincare routine. Facial oils and serums have been known to aid in rejuvenating and nourishing your skin overnight. Did you know that our skin naturally begins a natural regeneration process overnight? Applying a quality facial oil or serum can help give a good boost to this process and can help deliver a high concentration of active ingredients that many facial oils and serums are packed with such as antioxidants, vitamins, and peptides to help aid in specific skin concerns!
When it comes to serums, finding a vitamin C serum can really be beneficial because vitamin C has so many benefits for the skin such as anti-aging benefits, and helps to build collagen production which results in a more youthful appearance. According to Annie Chiu MD, “serums typically offer the highest concentration of active vitamin C and tend to have better skin penetration compared to other products, like creams and cleansers” as noted in this article by SELF.
5 - Eye Cream (If Needed)
The addition of a great eye cream can be beneficial to your nighttime skincare routine. If you notice dark circles, wrinkles, and dullness around the eyes, adding in an eye cream is a must! Ensure that the eye cream you choose also has retinol. Retinol promotes collagen production and improves skin tone and texture. The skin around our eyes are thinner and more susceptible to dryness, so incorporating an eye cream with just the right amount of Retinol in your nighttime skincare routine, can give your delicate eye area a much needed boost in hydration and nourishment!
6 - Moisturizer
Make sure to replenish your face as the last step in your nighttime skin care routine with a quality moisturizer. During the day our skin loses moisture and can become dry. When you finish off your nighttime skincare routine with a nourishing moisturizer, you’re not only hydrating your skin, but you’re also giving it a protective barrier that will help to lock in the moisture overnight, and protect the products that you applied beforehand so you can maximize the benefits of each product! Aside from hydrating your skin, moisturizers can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and promote firmness of your skin.
Your Step-by-Step Nighttime Skincare Routine
Now that you know which products you should incorporate into your nighttime skincare routine, let’s get into the exact way you should layer these products and how to effectively use them!
5 Step Nighttime Skincare Routine
- Step 1: Apply a facial cleanser to damp skin. Cleanse the skin thoroughly in a circular motion and rinse with warm water.
- Step 2: Apply your exfoliator to a damp face and start applying at the cheeks upwards toward your nose and forehead, avoiding the eye area. Use on your face and and/or body 2 – 3 times per week for healthier, smoother, more radiant looking skin.
- Step 3: Apply your face serum. Use 1-3 drops to promote hydration and a radiant glow!
- Step 4: Apply your eye cream by using your ring finger to gently tap the product around the eye area. Start at the inner corner underneath your eye, applying small dots in a semi-circle up to your brow bone.
- Step 5: Apply your moisturizer or a beauty balm to hydrate your skin, and create a protective layer over your skin.
- Step 6: Apply your face oil to lock in all the goodness of your products, and to give your skin an added boost of nourishment with cold-pressed seed oils before bed.
After This Dreamy Nighttime Skincare Routine You'll be Ready to Drift Off to Sleep And Wake With Radiant Skin!
Now that you know all of the products you should be using in your nighttime skincare routine, you’re set for bed and are setting your skin up for rejuvenation and a radiant morning glow! And don’t worry, you don’t need all of these products to make a big difference in your skin.

The Best 2023 Fall Skincare Routine – What to Add When Summer Fades to Fall
Oct 13, 2023
Fall is here as we feel the change with cooler weather, see the days getting shorter, and back-to-school and work schedule ‘hustle’ upon us here in New England. As we look forward to this transition in seasons, we need to consider how to care for our skin when the temperature starts to drop. Summertime skincare products will most likely be shelved, and the richer, more hydrating options will now be at your fingertips. It’s now time to adapt your product lineup to meet the needs of your skin! Lucky for you, we have all of the tips and recommendations on what products you should be using in your fall skin care routine, so let's dive in!
Cleanser and Moisturizer – Is That Enough?
What Steps to Add in your Fall Skincare Routine & What Products to Use
Load Up on The Moisturizer, Including Eye Cream
Which Moisturizer is Best for My Skin?
Maintain Youthful-Looking Skin - Our skin is continuously renewing itself, exposing the new skin to dryness and the elements. The most sensitive areas that also reveal signs of aging are our hands, neck and chest, forehead and under-eye. Keeping these target areas protected with moisture will aid in repairing cells faster, and keep your skin looking youthful. Moisturizers made with natural ingredients such as shea butter, essential oils, and botanicals can pack quite a moisture punch, and really work to maintain skin tone, texture and hydration.
Prevents Premature Aging - With the breakdown of collagen and elastin as we age, wrinkles will naturally appear. You can prolong their appearance by protecting your skin: avoid sun exposure, manage stress, eat healthy foods packed with vitamins & minerals and consistently moisturize with effective ingredients. Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. Starting a healthy natural skincare routine early is key to having long, lasting beautiful skin.
Face Masks For A Boost In Hydration
Benefits of Adding a Face Mask to Your Fall Skincare Routine
Adding a face mask weekly to your routine will provide multiple benefits to the overall healthy of your skin. Aside from a little TLC, let’s uncover what a mask can actually do.
Unclog And Decongest Pores - A face mask formulated with earths precious Clays are the chief ingredient that will help remove dirt and congestion and absorb excess oil produced by the skin. They also aid in sloughing the buildup of dead skin cells, revealing cleaner, fresher, newer skin beneath. Clean pores mean fewer chances of eruptions and breakouts. The right ingredients will detoxify and clarify the skin.
Boost Hydration - Masks help in stimulating blood circulation. Applying a clay mask, letting it absorb, and then removing it expands the blood vessels in our skin. A hydrating mask will deliver an intensive burst of nourishing and therapeutic skin care ingredients in a highly concentrated form to quench your skin.
Gateway to Better Skin - Masks clear the way for your other products to work effectively. They help in aiding those products to now be absorbed correctly into the skin. Why put a beautiful botanical serum and moisturizer on skin that is clogged, congested and dull? Clear the way to getting results by adding a mask to your Fall skincare routine.
Cut Back On the Exfoliating Scrub, But DONT Skip It!
Exfoliation is a necessary step to deep clean your pores and remove dead skin build up without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Our skin exposure to the elements of cold, wind and frigid temperatures weakens the skin barrier, causing our skin to be more vulnerable to irritation and dryness. Reduce your exfoliation to once in two weeks with a gentle scrub, followed by a serum and moisturizer. The combination of finely crushed walnut herbal powder infused with an aromatic blend of organic Lavender and Rosemary essential oil, Grapeseed oil and Vitamin E, will gently polish and wash away dead skin cells, leaving your skin extra soft, clear and lightly moisturized.
Switch to a Hydrating Toner
Add a Serum to Your Fall Skincare Routine
Will You Be Making These Changes to Your Fall Skincare Routine?
Just as you adapt your wardrobe to the change in seasons, the same applies to your skincare routine. Protection and prevention are paramount when it comes to temperature change, so ramping up your routine to fit those needs just makes sense. Go ahead and swap out the cleanser, level-up that moisturizer and add in a serum, mask and ever-so-important eye cream. Your skin will look brighter and healthier, with a radiant, natural glow! Keep an eye out, here soon we will be releasing our NEWEST formula "Replenish Retinol Cream"! This formula will be ready in time for Christmas and will make the perfect addition to your fall and winter skincare routines! Have questions on a fall skincare routine perfect for you?

The Importance of Knowing How Your Skincare is Sourced
Sep 14, 2023
Your Skin Is Your Body's Largest Organ
The Sourcing of Skincare Ingredients
Natural ingredients in skin care products are sourced from plants, minerals, and other natural substances. Some common natural ingredients include aloe vera, coconut oil, shea butter, lavender, green tea, and different fruit extracts. In addition to vitamin content, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds, these ingredients can nourish and protect the skin. For those with sensitive skin or those who are seeking a more environmentally friendly option, natural ingredients are often free of harsh chemicals and synthetic additives.
Synthetic ingredients are commonly used in skin care products for many different reasons. Developed in a laboratory, these ingredients are specifically designed to mimic the substances found in the skin. They can provide moisturization, UV protection, and anti-aging properties. With that being said, some synthetic ingredients may cause irritation or allergic reactions in some people. The long-term effects of synthetic ingredients on the skin and overall health are also being debated. If you plan to use products that contain synthetic ingredients, you should carefully read and research the ingredients beforehand.
The Role of Ingredients in Skincare
Understanding how each ingredient plays into your skincare products is incredibly important, not only because your skin is the largest organ on your body and you should want to know what’s being absorbed into it, but for several other reasons as well!
1. Skin Sensitivity and Allergies: Some ingredients may cause skin sensitivity or allergies. By knowing what's in your skincare, you can avoid products that contain substances your skin reacts negatively to. Some common skin irratants found in skincare are Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Oil, Propylene glycol, Formaldehyde releasers, Salicylic acid, Metals and Fragrance.
2 - Effectiveness: Different ingredients have different purposes for skin conditions. Knowing what ingredients address your specific skin concerns allows you to choose products that are tailored to your needs!
3 - Long-term Health: Some skincare ingredients have potential long-term health effects, such as exposure to harmful chemicals. Being aware of these risks helps you to make informed choices when it comes to your skincare. Believe it or not, you skincare is related to your overall health, and not just the health of your skin!
4 - The Impact on the Environment: Unfortunately, the beauty industry has a significant environmental footprint. The demand for exotic ingredients and excessive packaging contribute to waste and carbon emissions. Some of the worst ingredients for our planet that are commonly found in skincare are, Exfoliating Microbeads, Preservatives like BHA and BHT, Phthalates, Triclosan, Synthetic Fragrances, Silicones and Chemical Sunscreens, just to name a few.
By choosing skincare products with responsibly sourced ingredients and eco-friendly packaging, you can reduce your environmental impact! Here at RENU, this is an incredibly important topic. Most of the ingredients we use in our products are sourced from Brittish Columbia, which adheres to strict regulatory standards. We ensure our ingredients are responsibly sourced, and offer not only the option to ship our products without product boxes, but we use responsible packaging to ensure we aren't only taking great care of your skin, but the environment as well.
The Purity and Efficiency of Small Batch Products
Supporting Ethical Practices
Will You Be Keeping a Closer Eye on Your Skincare Products?
So, in the world of skincare, knowing where your products come from, how they're sourced, and what ingredients they contain is far more important and not just a personal preference. It's about taking responsibility for your skin's health, making informed choices, and contributing to a more sustainable and ethical beauty industry! Next time you reach for that skincare product, take a moment to research and consider its origins! Your skin and the planet will thank you for it. And, you deserve skincare that’s actually good for you!

5. Apply Eye Cream - If you're using an Eye Cream, gently apply the product nightly, using your ring finger around the eye area. Start at the inner corner underneath your eye, applying small dots in a semi-circle up to your brow bone.
6. Moisturize - Complete your pre-makeup skincare routine with a soothing Moisturizer to add hydration to the skin.
7. Nourish - Add a Facial Oil as the last step to lock in all the nourishment!
Better Skincare Means Easy Makeup Application, Which Equals Better Wedding Photos!

Photographs taken at your wedding are sure to be treasured for a lifetime. It is important to have a good skincare routine in order to prepare your skin for its big moment. Skin that is smooth and hydrated looks much better in candid photos and captures the essence of your special day so much better.

Top 5 Facial Cleanser Benefits
Jul 18, 2023
5 Benefits of Using a Quality Facial Cleanser
While there are many more benefits to using facial cleanser as part of your skincare routine, let's get into the top five benefits of facial cleanser and why you should be using one every day!
1. Facial Cleaner Benefits - Removing Impurities:
2. Facial Cleanser Benefits - Balancing the Skin's pH:
Something many may not know is that our skin has a natural protective barrier known as the "acid mantle", which helps maintain an optimal pH level. External factors like pollution, weather conditions, and using alkaline-based products can disrupt your pH-balance. Facial cleansers formulated with gentle, pH-balanced ingredients help to restore our skin's natural acidity, strengthening its protective barrier. By preserving the pH balance, cleansers contribute to healthier, more resilient skin.
3. Facial Cleanser Benefits - Enhancing Absorption of Skincare Products:
It is often overlooked that facial cleansers can improve the absorption of following skincare products. Our skin can better absorb serums, moisturizers, and other treatments when it is free of buildup and impurities. This is why facial cleanser is typically the first step in a skincare routine. Your skincare routine will be more effective if you use a cleanser first. By doing this, you ensure that the products you apply afterwards can penetrate deeply into your skin and deliver their intended benefits!
4. Facial Cleanser Benefits - Preventing Premature Aging:
Besides causing other skin problems, the accumulation of pollutants and free radicals can also accelerate aging. These external factors break down collagen and elastin. This leads to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and even skin firmness loss. It is possible to preserve your skin's appearance while promoting a more radiant complexion by thoroughly cleansing with a quality facial cleanser.
5. Facial Cleanser Benefits - Hydrating and Nourishing:
While facial cleansers primary focus is to remove impurities, many formulations also include ingredients that hydrate and nourish your skin as well. Look for cleansers with moisturizing ingredients that help to replenish your skin's moisture barrier such as RENU Purifying Gel Cleanser. With green tea leaf extract, camellia oil, and honeyquat, this cleanser provides antioxidant protection and moisture retention. As an added bonus, it contains dead sea salts, which are rich in magnesium and boosts the hydration process while strengthening the skin's lipid barrier. Cleansers that contain antioxidants, vitamins, or botanical extracts will provide your skin with additional nutrients!
How to Properly Use Your Facial Cleanser
Now that we’ve covered all of the great benefits of incorporating a quality facial cleanser into your routine, let’s go over how to properly wash and cleanse your face! To maximize the benefits of your face wash, it is important to follow the proper usage technique's. It is recommended to wash your face twice a day, ideally morning and night.
1. Wet your face with lukewarm water to help open up your pores. You'll want to avoid using hot water as this can not only cause inflammation and redness on your skin, but it can strip your skin of it’s natural oils as well.
2. Take a small amount of face wash and gently massage it onto your face while using circular motions. Concentrate on areas that are prone to oiliness and blemishes. Avoid scrubbing too hard so as to not irritate the skin. Be gentle, allowing the face wash to do its job.
3. Rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water to ensure all product residue is cleansed and removed from your face.
4. Pat your face dry with a clean towel and make sure to avoid rubbing aggressively to prevent unnecessary friction on the skin.
What to Use After Cleansing Your Face
Now that we’ve gone over the importance of using a quality facial cleanser and how to properly use it, let’s talk about the products that you should be using after cleansing your face.
Following your cleansing with a toner is always a great idea. Toner will help to protect, refresh and revamp your skin! Our new Renu Rosewater & Hibiscus Toner is an alcohol-free formula that will help to strengthen your skin barrier and deliver hydration and balance to your skin! It’s rich in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Its rose petals contain a variety of polyphenols, which provide anti-aging properties, and minimize the appearance of pores.
Exfoliating after cleansing is also incredibly beneficial. This is especially beneficial during those hot summer months when you’re sweating more and creating more buildup on your face. RENU Hydra Whip Exfoliant is perfect to gently exfoliate your skin while helping to smooth your complexion and crêpe skin on the neck and chest. It allows you to polish, buff and unclog your pores for fresh, smooth, radiant skin!
Following exfoliation, a quality facial oil is a must! Using a light but powerful facial oil like RENU Luxury Face Oil is a great addition to your skincare routine. Our Luxury Face Oil is best known for its ability to actively brighten and increase collagen contributing to pro-aging benefits. It’s packed full of restorative omega fatty acids that will leave skin looking smoother and healthier with a youthful, radiant glow. It will also help protect your skin against everyday free radicals, and provides superpower hydration to help improve cell health long term.

This creamy yet indulgent non-comedogenic beauty balm was created with plant retinoids to smooth fine lines and improve skin’s tone and texture. When you finish your skincare routine with a quality moisturizer or beauty balm, you’re setting your skin up for success.

Top 5 Menopause Skincare Tips to Combat Dry and Dull Skin
Jul 02, 2023
Menopause is a natural process that marks the end of the menstrual cycle in women. In some cases, women can start menopause prematurely. Either way, taking care of your skin during menopause is important as it's incredibly common for women to experience changes in their skin during menopause. During this time, our estrogen levels drop, which can decrease collagen production in the skin. In return, skin can be dry, itchy, and dull, and it requires special care to stay healthy and glowing.
That's why a great menopause skincare routine is vital! See our “How Collagen Helps & Works For Your Skin” blog to dive deeper on the benefit of collagen for your skin! The purpose of this blog is to discuss how to care for menopausal skin, and which ingredients are best for women who are struggling with the effects that menopause has on their skin.

Antioxidants and Their Importance in Your Menopause Skincare Routine

In addition to these ingredients, there are also lifestyle changes that you can make to help keep your menopausal skin healthy and glowing. First, make sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. This will help keep your skin hydrated and plump. Second, make sure to get some sort of exercise in 3 - 4 days a week. Start with just 10 minutes a day and gradually increase the intensity and duration.
Exercising regularly can release the happy hormones called endorphins, which helps relieve menopause symptoms, making irritability and mood swings easier to cope with. Even going for short daily walks or doing some yoga stretches can help keep your body functioning well. Because getting enough sleep is essential during Menopause, getting some exercise in will also help you to get a restful sleep! Lack of sleep can lead to dark circles and puffiness around the eyes, as well as a dull complexion. If you’re having a hard time sleeping, try our soothing Bath Bombs to help you relax before bed. Renu’s bath bombs are made with mineral rich magnesium and sea salt to gently detoxify and re-balance your body, while aroma-therapeutic essential oils soothe your skin and calm your mind! Finally, make sure to eat a healthy diet that is rich in fiber, vitamin D and calcium. Foods that are high in antioxidants and other nutrients are essential for healthy skin.
What Changes Will You Be Making For Your Menopausal Skin?
In conclusion, menopausal skin requires special care to keep it healthy and glowing. To take care of your menopausal skin, make sure to cleanse it properly, moisturize it regularly, and use ingredients such as retinol and antioxidants that can help improve the texture and tone of your skin. In addition to these skincare tips, make sure to stay hydrated, get enough sleep, and eat a healthy diet to help keep your skin looking its best.
