A lot of us here at Soko Glam can credit a meticulous 10 step routine to our luminous skin, but there’s another secret behind our great skin. Our moms! Lots of our mothers have glowing skin and we look to them for inspiration and tips on how to keep our skin in the best state it can be.
Below are some of the best tips from the moms of Soko Glam employee’s, as well as their favorite products. Take notes!
Take biotin and wear sunscreen
“Aside from always washing my face at night and using serums, I take biotin every single day to strengthen my hair and my skin, and I wear sunscreen every single day.” —Donna, content manager Renee’s mom
Favorite skin care product: The Missha Time Revolution Night Repair New Science Activator Ampoule “It absorbs into the skin so smoothly and you can feel it working right away. It makes my skin shine with luminosity and I have friends asking if I just had a facial after I use it.”
“One word: HONEY! Raw natural Honey is packed with nutrients and enzymes to nourish and heal skin. It helps to retain and preserve moisture. Women in my culture have been using honey for centuries. In fact, my grandmother used to take honey and milk baths.
One secret that still lives in my family is honey cuticle moisturizer. I mix a teaspoon of honey with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of coconut oil. I then rub the mixture over each cuticle and let it sit for 10 minutes, then rise it off. Coconut oil conditions and protects, while the acetic acid in apple cider vinegar softens hard skin and supports healthy growth by balancing the PH.”—Sima, merchandising manager Raha’s mom
Favorite skin care product: Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Essence “As I have gotten older, my skin has lost its natural oils. I like how this essence is hydrating and smells divine.”
Live a balanced, healthy life
“Good sleep, a healthy diet, yoga, and of course, a consistent, daily skin care routine!”—Chris, senior customer experience manager Mickey’s mom
Favorite skin care product: Neogen Real Ferment Micro Essence “I use it on my models to keep their skin hydrated and plump before I apply their makeup!”
Give yourself a massage
“I massage my face to stimulate it; it feels good and helps minimize lines.”—Nancy, The Klog’s social media and community coordinator Marissa’s mom
Favorite skin care products: Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence Intensive Moist and The Face Shop Rice Ceramide Moisturizing Emulsion
Be consistent with 3 things
“Exercise, water, and sleep are best anti-aging tips.”—Maxine, channel account manager Leiah’s mom
Favorite skin care products: EltaMD UV Clear Broad- Spectrum SPF 46 and the Neogen Bio Peel Gauze Peeling Wine
Don’t neglect your neck and hands
“The skin around the neck is very thin and can be the first to lose elasticity, and your hands are always exposed to the sun so they are the first to gain sun spots. For these two skin concerns, I use sheet masks that help treat the neck area like the Neogen Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit mask, and I also always use a facial sunscreen that has SPF 50+, on my hands!”—Nancy, CEO Dave’s mom
Never forget SPF
“I believe the best skin care tip is to use skin protection from the sun (sunscreen and hats). At my age, I’m trying to correct the damage done by the sun.”—Toni, talent acquisition manager Holly’s stepmom
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
“The secret is cleansing well, moisturizing at night, and moisturizing more during winter months. Also, always wear sunblock during the day and avoid the sun as much as you can.”—Elizabeth, marketing coordinator Michelle’s mom
Favorite skin care product: Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum
Invest in masks
“I try to use the La Mer Lifting and Firming Mask every two weeks when I have the time, and if I can’t, I try to get a facial at least every two months.”—Kim, junior designer Vanessa’s mom
Water is key
“I make sure to drink lots of water and sleep well. I also exercise regularly!”—Regina, director of BD + operations Justine’s mom
Favorite skin care product: Son & Park Beauty Water
