Get Ready to Love Your Skin

Smart, considered skin care is one piece of the beautiful-skin puzzle.

Say it with us: Aging. Is. Natural.

Purely from a human-being standpoint, if we age, we are lucky. We think it’s time to celebrate the skin we’re in as the calendar pages turn—no looking back, and certainly no “anti-aging” stance. Only forward-thinking and forward-looking skin care that helps us look and feel our best.

Burt’s Bees is a brand that celebrates nature, natural ingredients, and the cycles of renewal that happen in the natural world. We believe in empowering people to care for their skin so that it can be its most beautiful, season after season. We’ve gathered up a few other ways you can help your skin thrive at any age.

A Skin-Celebrating Lifestyle

Hydrate Inside and Out
We all know that drinking water is important for so many aspects of our physical wellbeing. It helps our bodies function and is essential to daily life. But, drinking lots of water won’t directly hydrate your skin—your skin needs to create its own moisture, and you need to support it with smart cleansing and moisturizing day and night. You should reach for a moisturizer that contains a natural SPF of 30 or higher to protect your skin from sun damage during the daytime, and use a night cream that helps lock in moisture while you rest.

Catch Some Zzz’s
Speaking of rest, make sure you’re getting enough of it. When you’re not sleeping enough, it shows on your skin. Exhaustion can lead your body to produce cortisol, the stress hormone which causes inflammation and can activate skin conditions like acne, psoriasis and eczema. Fluid drainage also happens overnight, which means those pesky under-eye bags are more likely to stay puffed when you’re sleep deprived.

Get Outside
Spending time outdoors is something we’re really passionate about here at Burt’s Bees. We call it “re-wilding,” or reconnecting with our natural habitat. But there are plenty of studies that show how being outside is beneficial to your health and overall wellbeing. It decreases stress, reduces inflammation and helps eliminate fatigue—all good things for your skin! (See some of our ideas about getting outdoors here and here.)

Skin-Loving Ingredients

When you’re building your skin care routine, keep an eye out for these ingredients. They can help each formula work a little harder to get your skin looking healthier and happier.

Vitamin A: This is the name of a group of fat-soluble retinoids, including retinol, retinal and retinyl esters. Most commercial retinols are synthetic, made to mimic naturally occurring versions.

Vitamin E: : As a fat-soluble antioxidant, Vitamin E protects the skin from free radical damage and is anti-inflammatory.

Bakuchiol: : This powerful retinol alternative is a plant extract that visibly smooths lines and wrinkles, while being gentle to the skin.

The Renewal Skin Care Difference

Our Renewal skin care line brings a unique set of benefits to your everyday regimen. These luxurious formulas showcase Bakuchiol, a natural retinol alternative that’s gentle by nature.

All-Day Versatility
We created our Renewal formulas so that they could integrate seamlessly into your routine—or, become your entire routine, from cleanser to day lotion to night cream and everything in between. The formulas that feature Bakuchiol (a natural retinol alternative)) visibly smooth lines and wrinkles while being gentle enough to use day or night.

Ageless Appeal
No matter where you are in your life journey or what type of lifestyle you lead, Renewal can bring nature-powered care to your everyday. It’s built to serve you as your life evolves, and to help you look and feel your best each day. And, it’s designed for simplicity: a single routine that serves all of your skin care needs means that you have fewer decisions to make and more time to focus on your overall wellness.

Multi-Benefit Formulas
From start to finish, the Renewal regimen delivers a powerful plant-derived retinol alternative, mineral SPF protection, antioxidant protection, dark spot correction, allover firming and lasting hydration. All with ingredients from nature that you can feel good about using.

Our Renewal skin care line is a daily celebration of you and your skin. Yes, it’s very effective at visibly smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, but it also nourishes the skin and hydrates deeply, helping skin thrive. Try it and see for yourself what a difference Renewal can make.
