Self-love and healing the relationship with your skin and body is at the forefront of Skin Poem, a skincare company created by entrepreneur Chin Simpson. To love yourself is to love the skin you’re in. After Chin’s brother struggled with a severe case of psoriasis thousands of miles away from his family, Chin made sure to send him positive affirmations and eventually skincare products that would help alleviate the pain of the condition. Skin Poem was the continuation of Chin’s care for her brother through a trying time: products that help heal irritated skin and contain uplifting verses of poetry.
Each product is versatile, as it helps with dry, irritated skin but is gentle enough to suit other skin types. Skin Poem is a product of the work of various chemists and dermatologists, working together to create a sustainable solution for sensitive skin. The products can be used on their own in addition to one’s skincare regime, but they can also make the perfect, moisturizing, and refreshing skincare routine. Here is the five-step routine that follows the vision of Skin Poem, in helping you love the skin you’re in and feel good.
Step One: Exfoliate with Gentle Skin Reset Scrub
In the shower or in the bathroom, put some Gentle Skin Reset Scrub on your hands. Make sure to massage it in, wash it with water, and pat it dry. Exfoliating is an essential part of maintaining healthy and vibrant skin. In general, exfoliation can get rid of dry and flaky patches of skin that are caused by the buildup of dead skin cells. Long-term, it can help aid in collagen production. This Skin Reset Scrub contains volcanic and corundum minerals which aid in brightening and clearing skin. In addition, this scrub helps to unclog pores and help cool the skin down which is ideal for long, hot summer days.
Step Two: Wash your Face with Collagen and Colloidal Oatmeal Soap
Lather up with Skin Poem’s very own Collagen and Colloidal Oatmeal Soap. Make sure to rub the soap well throughout your face, rinse with water, and pat dry! This soap is made with colloidal oatmeal, which helps to soothe the skin, treating dry, itchy, and irritated skin. Oatmeal also contains essential antioxidants which cleanse the skin. The collagen in this soap, imported from Korea, helps to retain the skin’s moisture. In addition, collagen keeps the skin firm, elastic, and soft. This soap can help keep your skin clean without drying it out, which is especially great for those who already have drier skin.
Step Three: Spray All Day with Hydrating and Brightening Mist
The Hydrating and Brightening Mist is best used to moisturize after washing your face. One spritz leads to instant refreshment. However, this mist can be used all throughout the day, even over makeup, the perfect way to cool down and feel fresh. The key ingredient for this mist is Fucodian algae, which is imported from France. This special remedy has anti-aging properties, in addition to increasing antioxidants and protecting from inflammation, perfect for sensitive skin. The Hydrating and Brightening Mist brightens skin and also helps skin to retain moisture for an instant skin boost.
Step Four: Apply FP Series Cream for Instant Relief
Once you’ve finished showering, lathering up, exfoliating, spritzing, and drying off, it is important to moisturize, especially if you have sensitive skin. This is where the FP Series Cream is your best friend. Best used for patches of skin that are itchy and dry, this highly absorbent cream can be used anywhere on the body. Anonna Cherimola imported from Germany, is a key ingredient as it is high in Vitamin C. Vitamin C, a vital ingredient for skin reduces redness and aids in collagen production, hydration, and skin brightening. This cream helps to reduce inflammation and sensitivity, a great way to alleviate discomfort.
Step Five: Lock in Moisture with FP Series Moisturizer
Moisturizer is a key part of any skincare regime. It is best used after washing and misting the face, so once you’ve done every step, rub in FP Series Moistruzier to keep your skin feeling revitalized and refreshed. This moisturizer uses a variety of plant and fruit extracts such as green tea extract for anti-bacterial purposes, lotus flower to get rid of toxins, sunflower/safflower oil to lock in moisture, and olive oil to help reduce discoloration. In addition, the FP Series Moisturizer contains five different ceramides (the skin’s first line of defense against pollutants and toxins) that aid in keeping skin healthy, locking in moisture, and preventing skin aging. A lack of naturally-occurring ceramides leads to dry skin, so the ceramides help with the skin’s dryness and irritation as well. In conclusion, this moisturizer is a great last step for your skincare routine in addition to being a great product to use before bed.
Overall, these five products help with keeping your skin clean, refreshed, and moisturized. Taking care of your skin is a key part of retaining its health and preventing inflammation, dryness, and redness, which cause discomfort. These five easy steps will lead to you feeling revitalized, and the best version of yourself. The message behind Skin Poem is the love yourself, and the skin your in, so heal your relationship with your skin, with poems to inspire your confidence and products to help repair your skin.
