How to lose that lackluster winter skin in 10 days? We’ve got you. Sure, it takes at least a month to see real results, but today we’re diving into the tricks and tools to boost skin health and radiance in a week and a half. Consistency is key, so keep with it daily and start the new year with new skin. Who wants in?
Here are the five steps to improve your skin in 10 days:
Your cheekbones aren’t going to contour themselves, and makeup can only go so far. Use your gua sha to highlight your cheeks and jawline while penetrating ingredients in serums deeply into the skin. Plus, it helps with lymphatic drainage (puffy morning-face be gone!).

After using your gua sha, put on your LED light shield mask for 15 minutes. Multitask while you’re masking and catch up on your emails.

If you don’t already know the benefits of retinol for anti-aging then read up on it here. Retinol is a concentrated form of vitamin A, and if implemented into your beauty routine, it can be a skin savior (think: complexion and texture, and decreased appearance of pores and wrinkles).
With retinol, you want to start slowly: apply every third day, at night, then increase to every other night, then build to every night. It’s extremely important to use sunscreen every morning, as retinol can increase your skin’s photosensitivity. We don’t use retinol during the day—and we don’t recommend it, either.

5. Reset your daily cleanser selection
Update your line-up with an option that balances your skin’s pH for a healthy glow-up. Opt for Dr. Elsa Jungman’s Begin Again Cleanser when washing your face at the end of the night. It will remove residue from the day and literally reset your skin’s acid mantle. Yes, please.
