Have you ever used a beauty filter and thought, "Why can’t my skin be like this IRL?" Trust us, we’re with you. The road to clear skin can be a bumpy and an overwhelming one, especially if you don’t know where to start. With this in mind, we’ve curated some of the best tips and products that can help you achieve the clear skin of your dreams. Want the fresh, blurred complexion you get from filters? Read on to see how you can tweak your routine.

Best Skincare Tips and Products for Clear Skin

1. Keep your skin hydrated.

You’d be surprised by how many problems forgetting to hydrate and moisturize your skin can cause. Your skin barrier can become compromised, which can lead to dryness, flaking, and even premature wrinkles. And don’t think you can get away with skipping hydration if you have oily skin—doing so can actually make your skin even oilier since sebum production will need to go into overdrive to keep your skin moisturized.

To hydrate your skin without having to use heavy creams and oils, try Habitude’s Hardworking Miracle Water. This hydrator and makeup remover in one can help tone, hydrate, unclog pores, and moisturize. It’s formulated with galactomyces, a type of yeast known for its antioxidant effects, and rice ferment filtrate, which can help bring a radiant glow to your complexion.

2. Don’t forget to remove your makeup.

We get it: After a long, hard day, it’s tempting to just head straight to bed without removing your makeup. But skipping this important step in your nightly routine could wreak havoc on your skin in the long run. We’re talking breakouts, dry skin, irritated eyes, and clogged pores (yes, even if you do use non-comedogenic makeup!). Turn this step into muscle memory by using products that are fuss-free and uncomplicated.

To remove all your makeup (including waterproof mascara) quickly, try incorporating a cleansing balm into your routine. Personally, we love the Issy & Co. Cleansing Butter. It easily breaks down makeup, dirt, oil, and grime. You just need to massage it into your skin, add water to emulsify it, rinse it off, and double cleanse with your usual facial cleanser.

But if you’re in a real pinch, makeup remover whites are a good option, too! The Blk Cosmetics Collagen + Vitamin E Makeup Removing Wipes can remove your FOTD while also imparting nourishing ingredients like collagen and vitamin E into your skin. They’re also alcohol-free, making them a great pick if you have dry, sensitive skin.

3. Be gentle when addressing breakouts.

It’s tempting to tackle zits with all the acids in your skincare shelf, but being too aggressive can cause irritation, flakiness, redness, and possibly scarring and dark spots. Instead, try a soothing treatment that can banish breakouts as gently as possible. 

The Happy Skin Calming Spot Corrector’s two main ingredients go hand-in-hand in eliminating zits while nourishing the skin. Tea tree leaf water has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, so it can provide immediate relief from irritation while controlling excess sebum and treating active breakouts. Meanwhile, cica helps soothe and repair the skin, making any traces of a former zit completely undetectable.

4. Go for richer products at night.

When you sleep, your skin repairs itself from all the damage and exposure it was hit with during the day. You can help speed up the process when you use products that are meant to promote healing as you snooze.

Try slathering on the Happy Skin ​​Overnight Calming Cream before you go to bed. This intense moisturizing cream is packed with skin-loving ingredients that can help you wake up to clear, bright, and smooth skin. It includes five types of cica, which help soothe sensitive skin, calendula, which helps improve firmness, and a combination of hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and niacinamide, which help hydrate, moisturize, and brighten your skin.

5. Seal in your skincare with a facial oil.

Facial oils can help soften, condition, and seal in moisture in your skin, so we suggest adding it as the last step in your routine. Doing so will lock in all the ingredients and actives from your serums and moisturizers, so you can get the most out of your whole routine.

One facial oil we love is the Pili Ani Self-Care Night Recovery Oil. It has a high concentration of pili and elemi oils, squalane, and sampaguita, which can help revitalize your complexion, protect your skin from irritants, minimize breakouts, and firm up the skin—all on top of moisturizing it, of course.

6. Consider laser treatments.

Sometimes, skincare can only do so much. Dealing with stubborn dark spots, acne, scars, and uneven texture can be frustrating, and if this is how you’ve been feeling, then it might be time to turn to skin experts. Laser treatments are super popular throughout many dermatology clinics, and that’s because they can address a number of different problems in just a few sessions. 

If you’ve been wanting to invest in your skin, we suggest trying Aivee Aerolase Neo Skin Treatment by The Aivee Clinic. It uses a 650 microsecond laser to penetrate the skin and address acne, uneven skin tone and texture, redness, pigmentation, and scars. Talk about an all-in-one treatment!
