What does your skin really need?
Do you need to apply eye cream?
And what would be a suitable solution to bring an end to all those dark spots on your face?
Truth be told, caring for the skin is not a straightforward task!
Most people became comfortable with embarking on a game of guesswork while trying to figure out the products that work well and cross their fingers, hoping for the best results.
But is there a better way of knowing what is right?
For this reason, we decided to put together this blog to answer the top 3 questions everyone should ask when it comes to proper skincare and our best 3 tips that go with them!
You are welcome!
1. What products should I include in a skincare routine?
It is not surprising that this is one of the most asked questions! With the many products out there, it is easy to get confused.
Trying to figure out small details such as what is best for your skin and when to use a particular product has no clear-cut approach. These shouldn't worry you too much, though.
The best way to deal with skincare products is to divide them into two. Ideally, you will be taking care of your skin in the morning and before you go to bed.
In the morning, we recommend that you wash your skin gently; you can use a face wash or just water. Apply an antioxidant serum and sunscreen. If you are wondering why you should follow this approach, read on to understand why.
Antioxidant serums are vital for the skin. As you go about your daily business, the serum repairs damaged skin cells and provide extra protection for your skin. In essence, it acts as an anti-aging solution!
In the evening, take care of your skin before you turn in to sleep. Wash your face with a mild face wash or cleanser like Lulo's Brightening Face Wash - Sweet Orange & Camu Camu and use an anti-aging serum. Your skin will be free from makeup during the night and will absorb all the benefits of your skincare products.
A topical retinoid is also a good idea if you want to enhance the rate of cell rejuvenation; start with a mild formula every two or three nights and work your way up to daily use.
Now that you have an insight into what you need to do henceforth consider getting Lulo's Revitalizing Face Serum - Papaya & Piña. Within a few days of applying it to your face, you will notice a drastic reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to the great effort of collagen peptides and hyaluronic acid.
The pineapple, mango and papaya extracts ensure an even and bright skin tone, while the coconut oil and mango seed butter keep the moisture locked in for intense nourishment while you sleep!
2. How often should I exfoliate?
This is another question that should be on your mind if you are concerned about proper skin care.
Nevertheless, there is no clear or straight answer to the number of times you need to exfoliate because it depends on your skin type and the type of products you are using in your routine. Luckily, we can address the situation by controlling other aspects such as the product itself, its capabilities and other products that you use along with your exfoliator.
You need to exfoliate if you want to get rid of the dead skin cells that sit on the top layer of your skin. It plays a vital role in sustaining your skin's health, beauty, and glow.
For best results, you need to exfoliate at least twice every week.
Pro tip: Get our all-natural exfoliator
Our luxurious exfoliator introduces a bright tone to your skin. The irresistible ingredients such as calming plant leaves and petals and a great blend of essential oils purify your skin and get rid of excess oil and dead skin cells.

To apply the exfoliator to your face, drop the powder on your hands, proceed by wetting the powder with a little water so that a creamy paste is formed. Apply the paste to your face in gentle patterns while avoiding your eyes. Let the exfoliator work its magic for around 5 minutes then rinse it away.
3. Why should I use eye cream, and which should I use?
Most of us think that eye cream and face cream are synonyms. Unfortunately, that is not the case. We cannot emphasize the importance of eye cream enough. It prevents the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines on your eye area.
Have you ever wondered why you are advised to leave out the eye area while using other skin care products?
This is because the eye area consists of thin skin that needs special products that can penetrate; this delicate skin requires products formulated to treat specific problems, like puffiness and dark circles.
What eye cream products should I use?
You want an all-natural product such as our Replenishing Eye Cream - Mango & Aguacate that contains the following ingredients:
Collagen peptides to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
Organic avocado oil and mango seed butter to condition, tighten and improve the skin's permeability.
Organic coffee seed extract to reduce inflammations.
Organic Lulo fruit extract rich in vitamin A and C to eliminate wrinkles.
For the best results, pat a small amount of the eye cream on your eyelids and the area beneath your eyes, then dab gently. Use your eye cream in the morning and as you go to sleep.
