Benefits of Gravityl for Skin

Gravityl is a multi-purpose ingredient that can help address multiple skin concerns, namely skin sagging, loss of firmness, loss of elasticity, and dehydration. “The structural foundation of your skin is provided by the dermal extracellular matrix composed of Collagen, Elastin, Hyaluronic Acid, and other critical molecules that help maintain skin structure and plumpness,” explains celebrity dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer.

“Aging and environmental factors can lead to the breakdown of these substances, which in turn causes skin sagging and loss of firmness. Gravity Defying Moisturizer with Firming Complex features innovative technology and world-class ingredients to target these concerns.”

Other Key Ingredients in Our New Moisturizer

Gravityl isn’t the only beneficial ingredient in our Gravity Defying Moisturizer: We’ve also packed it full of other beneficial compounds that will increase the firming and lifting effect. Here are some of the highlights of this moisturizer’s formulation:

gravity defying moisturizer key ingredients

  • Copper Tri-Peptide: This peptide triggers the skin to produce collagen and elastin. By hydrating and rejuvenating skin cells, Copper Tri-Peptides can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help even out skin tone.
  • Acetyl Hexapeptide-8: This peptide is designed to lessen the appearance of wrinkles by preventing muscle contractions. It also stimulates collagen production, which plays a key role in keeping skin firm and smooth.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate: This is a form of Hyaluronic Acid that attracts moisture and reduces inflammation. When applied topically, Sodium Hyaluronate is excellent for reducing dryness and the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Phytosphingosine: This compound supports the skin’s barrier function and has anti- inflammatory and antimicrobial functions.
  • Shea Butter: This all-natural emollient helps skin retain moisture and is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents.

In case you’re curious, here’s the full list of ingredients for our Gravity Defying Moisturizer so that you can see all the beneficial compounds it contains:

Water/Aqua/Eau, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Coconut Alkanes, 1,2-Hexanediol, Squalane, C12-16 Alcohols, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Potassium Cetyl, Phosphate, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Gigartina Stellata Extract, Ceramide NP, Ceramide AP, Phytosphingosine, Cholesterol, Ceramide EOP, Copper Tripeptide-1, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Palmitic Acid, Tocopherol, Coco- Caprylate/Caprate, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Cetearyl Glucoside, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Sodium Phytate, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Limonene.

Who Should Use Our Gravityl Moisturizer?

Anyone of any age who is concerned about premature aging can benefit from using our Gravity Defying Moisturizer. Keep in mind that it’s never too early or too late to start using anti-aging skincare products, so anyone from their 20s into their 90s can benefit from it! Prevention is often more effective than trying to address visible signs of aging, so we recommend getting started with our Gravityl moisturizer as early as possible.

Our Gravity Defying Moisturizer is especially beneficial for dry skin types since it is a rich cream formula. For more information about dry skin, check out our guide that explains why your skin might still be dry even after you moisturize. If you have oily skin and still want to get the benefits of our Gravityl moisturizer, you can use it at night only if you find that it is too heavy for your skin during the day.

Before & After Proven Results

Don’t just take our word for it: The results show that our Gravity Defying Moisturizer is effective at minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin after just a few weeks of use. The before and after images speak for themselves, as do the statistically significant findings that our before and after test found:

  • Statistically significant improvement in the appearance of skin plumping after four weeks of treatment.
  • Statistically significant improvement in the appearance of skin elasticity after 24 hours, two weeks, and four weeks of use.
  • Statistically significant improvement in the appearance of skin firmness after four weeks of treatment.
  • Statistically significant improvement in skin hydration from baseline after 24 hours, two weeks, and four weeks of use.

We also surveyed participants to get their opinions on our new moisturizer. Here’s what they had to say about their experience with Gravityl:

gravity defying moisturizer claims

  • 100% of participants agreed their skin appeared firmer after two and four weeks of use.
  • 100% of participants agreed their skin appeared tighter after two weeks of use.
  • 100% of participants agreed their skin texture improved after four weeks of use.
  • 100% of participants agreed their skin was more hydrated and moisturized after four weeks of use.
  • 97% of participants agreed their skin appeared more radiant just 24 hours after applying it.
  • 97% of participants agreed that their skin felt smoother after four weeks of use.

How to Use Our Gravityl Moisturizer

Our Gravity Defying Moisturizer is a silky, rich cream formula that is suitable for use in both morning and nighttime skincare routines. You will see results more quickly if you use the moisturizer twice a day instead of just once.

Before applying the moisturizer, first remove any makeup and cleanse your face so that you are starting with a clean canvas. If you do use serums as part of your skincare routine, apply those next. Then take a small amount of our Gravity Defying Moisturizer and apply it to your face, neck, and decollete. In the morning, follow it up with sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage caused by the sun.

Perfect Partners for Our Gravityl Moisturizer

Our Gravity Defying Moisturizer is best used in conjunction with a well-rounded skincare routine. If you aren’t already using the Lancer 3-Step Method — which forms the foundation of all our skincare routines — then you should look into that first. We offer several different Method skincare sets that are specifically designed for three distinct skin types (normal-combination, sensitive-dehydrated, and oily-congested) so you can choose the one that suits your skin type best.

To see results even faster, consider pairing our Gravity Defying Moisturizer with one of our other lifting and firming skincare products, such as our dark spot removers. Here are some of our recommendations for perfect partners for our Gravityl moisturizer:

Gravityl and Eye Contour Lifting Cream

Eye Contour Lifting Cream with Diamond Powder

Our Eye Contour Lifting Cream is a triple-action eye treatment and hydrator that targets multiple eye area concerns for a brighter, more youthful appearance. This emollient blend of time-released Hyaluronic Acid and Shea Butter provides a cushion of rich and lasting moisture. 

This cream helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles, and loss of elasticity, thanks to Dr. Lancer’s proprietary Multi-Dimensional Complete Pro-Youth Complex. It’s finished with Diamond Powder and minerals for a photoluminescence to subtly illuminate the under eye area, creating a youthful glow that obscures dark circles.

Gravityl and active rejuvenation serum

Active Rejuvenation Serum with Triple Dermal Complex

Our Active Rejuvenation Serum begins to work immediately for softer, more youthful- and firmer-looking skin. Developed for daily use, this powerful anti-aging serum contains a complex blend of amino acids to help revitalize the skin while providing all-day hydration.

A Guide to Skincare Devices

A Guide to Skincare Devices
At-home skincare devices are often billed as cheaper alternatives to professional treatments at a dermatologist, medical spa, or aesthetician’s office. While these skincare tools are often less expensive than in-office treatments, they do still often represent a significant financial investment. If you use them every day, then the tool will quickly pay for itself — but all too many people leave their at-home skincare devices to collect dust in a drawer after trying them a couple of times. So how can you tell if an at-home skincare device is worth the cost for you, and how do you choose which one is right for your skincare concerns?

Should You Get an At-Home Skincare Device?

First of all, we recommend getting into a regular skincare routine to start. It’s much easier to incorporate a skincare device if you already have a set routine in the morning and at night, instead of trying to begin everything from scratch. If you’re not sure where to start, a curated skincare set like the ones offered by Lancer Skincare will give you all the basic products that you need to start building a skincare routine.

At-home skincare devices are less powerful than in-office treatments, so you also need to be committed to using them consistently (in some cases daily) to see results and get your money’s worth. If you’re not willing to use the device at least somewhat regularly, then it might not be worth the investment for you personally.

We also recommend carefully considering what skincare concerns you want to address, as well as what skin type you have overall. Not all skincare devices address all skincare concerns equally well. Even if a particular skincare device is getting a lot of hype right now, it may not be the best tool for your skincare concerns. For example, facial cleansing brushes are great for deep cleaning the skin and getting a light exfoliation, but they’re not that effective for treating lines and wrinkles or acne breakouts. If those are your concerns, you’d be better off with an LED light wand or a microcurrent device.

If you’re not sure what kind of at-home skincare device would work best for you, your aesthetician or dermatologist will probably have some recommendations for you if you ask. Even if you’re getting regular office treatments done, your aesthetician or dermatologist may even recommend an at-home device to extend your results and maintain your skin in between appointments. In the next section, we will explore all the main categories of skincare devices to help you decide which ones might work for your skin.

At-Home Skincare Devices to Choose From

gua sha stones and jade rollers

Gua Sha Stones and Jade Rollers

Gua sha stones and jade rollers are some of the most affordable at-home skincare devices, making them a popular entry point. Gua sha stones are flat on both sides with rounded edges that are perfectly contoured for different parts of the face. Jade rollers have a spinning barrel attachment that is connected to a handle. 

As the name suggests, both of these devices are typically made from semi-precious stones such as jade. However, you can find them made out of other stones as well as different materials, such as stainless steel and wood. Gua sha stones and jade rollers promote the circulation of blood and length and also encourage the absorption of your skincare products. They can be used with almost any skincare routine and if you’re asking yourself, what skin type do I have? These products are safe for any skin type, making them a versatile and popular skincare tool.

Ice Rollers and Globes

Ice rollers and globes are designed to be placed in either the refrigerator or freezer to cool them down. Once they are ready, you can apply them to your face or body to reduce swelling and puffiness. Ice rollers are made with a stainless steel barrel on the end that quickly cools down, while ice globes are typically filled with a gel substance that freezes when placed in the freezer. 

Many people like to use these alongside other eye care products first thing in the morning to target puffy eyes and any swelling that may have occurred while they were sleeping. They are also very refreshing to use during hot weather and can help you feel alert more quickly first thing in the morning. These products are also very affordable and can be used by almost any skin type.

Facial Cleansing Brushes

Facial cleansing brushes are designed to deliver a deeper cleanse than just your hands are capable of. They also provide an exfoliating effect, helping to remove dead skin cells and reveal an even complexion. 

There are two main types of facial cleansing brushes: ones with silicone bristles built-in, and then others with a bristle head that needs to be removed and replaced at regular intervals. The facial cleansing brushes with the silicone tips are typically more gentle on the skin, and also more sanitary and easier to clean — plus, you don’t have the expense of having to buy new brush heads all the time. Many oily skin types find that they especially benefit from the extra exfoliating effect of facial cleansing brushes, but they may be too stripping for dry skin.

led light at home devices

LED Masks and Wands

LED light at-home devices can have many different benefits for the skin, depending on the color of the light. Red light therapy reduces inflammation and promotes the creation of collagen, which helps to prevent or diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Meanwhile, blue light helps to kill the kind of bacteria that cause acne. Some LED devices have only red or blue light, while others combine both of them for a well-rounded skin care treatment. 

These devices also come in many different sizes, shapes, and price points. LED wands are available in many different sizes, from pinpointed spot treatments to larger wands that cover a bigger area of your face. You can also get LED masks that cover the entirety of your face at once, which reduces the treatment time but costs a lot more and is less portable than a wand. While you can get LED treatments at a dermatologist or aesthetician, many people find it very beneficial to be able to use LED light therapy at home daily.

Dermaplaning Tools

Dermaplaning tools are designed to remove peach fuzz and the upper layer of dead skin cells from your face. They look similar to eyebrow razors, but the blades are typically designed a little bit differently for more effective exfoliation. You can get disposable dermaplaning tools or ones that come with interchangeable blades. Most dermaplaning tools are completely manual, but you can find some battery-powered ones that work similarly to electric razors, which are more expensive than the other types. 

People with sensitive skin or acne-prone skin should be very careful with dermaplaning at home because it can irritate if not done correctly. If you want the benefits of dermaplaning, but aren’t confident about doing it yourself, you can book a dermaplaning appointment at a dermatologist or aesthetician’s office, and a professional will do it for you.

Facial Steamer

You can DIY a facial steamer at home with a kettle of hot water, a bowl, and a towel. However, this experience isn’t super luxurious, and many people appreciate the convenience of a facial steamer at home, which replicates the feeling of a spa. Facial steamers are electronic devices that heat the water and turn it into steam at the perfect temperature for a facial. The devices feature ergonomic funnels perfectly shaped to direct the steam at your face. Many people with dry skin enjoy using a facial steamer at home because it helps to put moisture back into their skin, and also opens up their pores to increase product absorption.

skincare device microdermabrasion tools

Microdermabrasion Tools

Microdermabrasion tools use the rotating attachment to remove the top layer of skin, revealing a newly smooth and glowing complexion. These electronic devices come with different attachments that can be used to achieve different levels of exfoliation. 

For instance, our Pro Polish Microdermabrasion device comes with two diamond tips, a smaller tip for the face and a larger tip for the body. It also comes with disposable filters to trap dead skin and keep the device working and in optimal condition. The three suction settings allow you to customize exfoliation so that many different skin types and skin tones can use it. This award-winning skincare device comes in four different colors so you can choose your favorite!

Microcurrent Devices

Microcurrent devices pass a small electric current through your face to stimulate the muscles and skin. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, making it a great choice for anti-aging skin devices. It also helps to lift and tone the facial muscles, resulting in a younger-looking and brighter complexion. These are among the more expensive at-home skincare devices that you can buy, but many people swear by them. For best results, you need to commit to using it daily if possible. You can also get microcurrent treatments done in the office if you want to try it out first before buying an expensive at-home device.

Pore Extractors

Pore extractors help to remove gunk out of your pores, which is why many people with acne and blackheads tend to use them. The simplest and most affordable pore extractors feature a small loop or a point on the end of a handle that you can use to push around a blemish to extract the pus and dirt inside it. More expensive pore extractors are battery-powered and use either vibration or vacuum-like sucking to remove gunk from your pores. It can be very easy to overdo it with these pore extractors at home, so we recommend talking to your dermatologist before buying an at-home device. You can also get a pore extraction done professionally if you want good results without having to teach yourself how to do it correctly.

at-home microneedling

At-Home Microneedling

Almost all skincare devices can be used safely at home as long as you’re careful, but DIY microneedling devices harbor many potential dangers. Professional microneedling treatments done by an aesthetician or dermatologist use tiny needles to create micro-tears in the skin, which help to improve both appearance and texture. 

Professional microneedling treatments are very versatile and may be recommended for many different skincare issues, including wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks, enlarged pores, acne, hyperpigmentation, and more. However, at-home microneedling devices make it very easy to penetrate the skin too deeply or to create “micro” tears that are actually more like macro tears. 

It’s also very hard to keep at-home devices completely sterilized, which can cause infection and other complications. If you want the benefits of microneedling, we recommend finding a local aesthetician or dermatologist like Dr. Harold Lancer‘s office, so you can get the procedure done safely by an expert.

We hope this guide helped you feel more confident about choosing an at-home skincare device you will use and that will be effective for your skincare concerns. If you want to try out microdermabrasion, then grab our Pro Polish Microdermabrasion device. 

If you’re looking for a new skincare routine to supplement your at-home skincare devices, then check out the many best-selling and award-winning products we offer here at Lancer Skincare. All of our skincare products come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, and they also ship for free within the United States, no order minimum needed.

16 of the Best Skincare Trends to Follow

16 of the Best Skincare Trends to Follow
If you follow social media at all, then you know that there are plenty of viral skincare trends that you should avoid like using sunscreen to contour your face and applying lemon juice as an exfoliator. But what about the healthy, positive trends that are actually worth trying out? We’ve rounded up 16 skincare trends that aren’t just safe to try out — they will make a positive difference in your skin! From skin cycling to skincare products, here are the skincare trends that you should be following right now:

Skin Health

Previously, skincare used to only focus on what the skin looked like. However, over the past few years, a new focus on improving skin health as well as appearance has improved. Consumers now understand that supporting a healthy skin barrier and microbiome will lead to a better complexion, not the other way around. That’s why we have formulated all our skincare products with the high-quality ingredients that your skin barrier needs to stay healthy and strong. Of course, our products will give you a smooth and glowing complexion as well for double the benefits.

healthy skin skincare trend

Sun Protection

Gone are the days when people used to cover themselves in tanning oil and lie out in the sun for hours on end. Today, we understand that sun exposure is the no. 1 contributor to premature aging, which is why sun protection is a skincare trend that’s here to stay. You should be applying anti-aging sunscreen with a protection of at least SPF 30 every single day. You should also apply sunscreen to all your exposed skin, not just your face, but also your ears, neck, decollete, arms, and hands. Reapply every two hours when you are in the sun to ensure adequate protection.

Skin Cycling

While skin cycling started trending earlier this year, this concept has been around for a while, and it’s definitely worth incorporating into your routine. Skin cycling is basically the idea of taking “rest days” in your skincare routine to give your skin a break from powerful active ingredients. For instance, your skin cycling routine might look like exfoliating on night one, a retinol on night two, and a rest on night three to give your skin time to recover. Skin cycling can be tailored to whatever products you are using and your skin’s needs. You might also want to change it up with the weather; some people need more rest days in the winter when their skin is drier.

Gentle Exfoliation

When exfoliation first started trending, many people blasted their faces with harsh chemicals, seriously harming their skin barriers in the process. Now, people are focusing on gentle exfoliation instead as a way to remove the dead skin cells without harming the skin barrier. Products like the Lancer Method Polish are gentle enough to be used several times a week or even every day, depending on what skin type you have. These products prove that exfoliating products don’t have to sting or burn to be effective, and that you get the results you want without a permanently red face.

anti-aging skincare trend

Anti-Aging Skincare

It’s never too early (or too late) to get started on anti-aging skincare; we’re seeing many people in their twenties and even their teens get started on anti-aging skincare early. These products come in many different forms, including anti-aging creams, serums, oils, and more. Choose whichever ones best suit your needs and skin type to start slowing the development of premature signs of aging. Keep in mind that all Lancer anti-aging skincare products come with free shipping, so don’t hesitate to add them to your shopping cart!

Skinimalism

While 10-step routines were trending for a while, now skinimalism is in. Skinamalism, a.k.a. skin minimalism, is the act of paring back your skincare products to the essentials. Instead of using a bunch of different lower-quality skincare products that only do one thing each, skinimalism focuses on choosing a select few of higher-quality, multi-purpose products that contain multiple beneficial ingredients. Skinimalism frees up time, shelf space, and budget so that you can get the most for less out of your skincare routine.

Skincare-Makeup Hybrids

Speaking of multi-tasking skincare products, skincare-makeup hybrids are another trend that you should take advantage of. Skincare-makeup hybrids can take many forms, including skincare products adopting cosmetic pigments and makeup products incorporating beneficial skincare ingredients. Some examples of skincare-makeup hybrids include tinted sunscreens like our Mineral Sun Shield that offer sheer color and lip glosses that include hydrating ingredients. We expect these boundaries to blur further as this trend continues, so keep an eye out for new skincare-makeup hybrid product drops in the future!

niacinamide skincare trend

Niacinamide

Niacinamide is the skincare trend that won’t stop, and we are totally here for it. Niacinamide is a powerful multi-tasking ingredient that minimizes enlarged pores, improves uneven skin tone, smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, and brightens a dull complexion. We’ve incorporated niacinamide into several Lancer products, including the Triple Peptide Drops and the Overnight Brightening Mask, in order to harness the power of these amazing ingredients. In fact, you’re probably already using at least one skincare product that contains niacinamide, even if you don’t know it yet — but if you’re not, then you definitely should grab one of our niacinamide products!

Retinol Alternatives

We absolutely love retinol, but understand that not everyone can use it. It’s not recommended for pregnant people, and some people find that it makes their skin really dry and irritated. That’s why we’re so excited about retinol alternatives like bakuchiol and peptides, which have been trending recently and are used in our Gentle Exfoliating Peel Pads. These alternatives are a great option to explore if you’re not sure about using retinol, and they also make an excellent booster if you’re already using retinol. That’s why we formulated our retinol treatment serum with both bakuchiol and retinol, so that you get maximum results.

Lip Care

Not only is the skin around your lips very delicate, but it’s also exposed to many different irritants in the form of food and drink. So it’s no wonder that premium lip care products have been trending recently! These high-quality lip care items go way beyond the cheap lip balm you pick up in the grocery store checkout line. Choose from lip serums, sleeping, and other super-nourishing products that will give you plump, moisturized lips. For best results, apply these products during the day, not only at night when you sleep.

Menopausal Skin

All those hormone surges cause changes in your body, including in your skin, which means that women need to change their skin care during menopause. However, menopausal skin has been largely ignored in the skincare community — until recently. Now, more and more brands are coming out with products such as hydrating oils formulated for menopausal and mature skin, which is a skincare trend we are absolutely loving. If you’re going through menopause, you now have more skincare options than ever before.

Dermatologist Brands

While celebrity skincare has been around for a while, a more recent phenomenon is dermatologist-created skincare. Lancer Skincare is just one example of a skincare line created by a dermatologist. After decades of treating celebrities and other high-profile clients at his Beverly Hills practice, Dr. Harold Lancer decided to launch a skincare line to make his special formulas more widely available to people who don’t live near his clinic. Needless to say, this is one skincare trend that we have been loving, and we can’t wait to see more of it.

At-Home Skincare Devices

At-home skincare devices used to be bulky, expensive, and not that effective. All that is in the past, however, thanks to recent developments in technology that have made at-home skincare devices smaller, more effective, and less expensive. While they can’t match the power of an in-office treatment, at-home skincare devices like our microdermabrasion tool deliver results when used consistently over time. If you haven’t yet tried an at-home skincare devices, there is no better time than now to start trying one today!

advanced skincare trend

Advanced Skincare

Speaking of advancements in skin care, this is true for ingredients as well as technology. Right now, we are seeing more cutting-edge ingredients being developed every day, and luxury skincare brands like Lancer are leading the way with major investments into research and development. We now have an entire line of advanced treatments that were designed to address different skincare concerns, including a retinol treatment for anti-aging, a vitamin C treatment for radiance, and an eye contour cream for lifting and firming. If you’re not sure which treatments are advanced, just look for the all-silver packaging.

Body Care

While the face has gotten most of the attention in the skincare world, we are seeing body care start to trend as well — and we’re not just talking about applying your face skincare to your decollete, either. Consumers are now looking for elevated body care products, including body washes, lotions, serums, and exfoliators, so that they can glow from top to toe. In fact, we released an entire Lancer Method 3-step Skincare Set for the body so that you can get the benefits of our proprietary system for your entire body.

Skincare Supplements

Supplements have been a big trend for a while now, and they’re finally crossing over into the skincare community. Supplements that are specifically designed to support skin health and appearance are now available, especially with a focus on balancing the gut biome. People are also taking vitamin A, C, D, and E, which can help boost the skin as well as other aspects of their health. This is part of a broader trend of internal skincare, whereby people are treating their skin from the inside out as well as the outside in. Just don’t forget to talk to your doctor before adding any new vitamins and supplements.

If you’re ready to hop on some of these skincare trends, then shop the Lancer Skincare online store today! All of our products come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, so that you can shop for luxury skincare online with confidence.

Everything You Need to Know About Our 3-Step Skincare Routine

lancer 4 piece skincare set

At Lancer Skincare, we model our regimen on a 3-step skincare routine, but we take a slightly different approach from other brands and beauty gurus. To clarify things, we created this guide that explains what the 3-step Lancer Method is and how to figure out which skin type regimen will fit your needs best.

The 3-Step Lancer Method

No matter what skin type you have, each Lancer Method skincare set follows the same three steps: polish, cleanse and nourish. Here’s what you need to know about each of these three steps and why they are essential:

  • Polish: The polish step involves exfoliating your skin. We recommend doing this after removing your makeup but before cleansing your skin for optimal results. Our facial scrubs combine physical and chemical exfoliation ingredients to immediately smooth your complexion out. Quartz crystals, pumpkin and pomegranate enzymes and salicylic acid are just some of the powerhouse ingredients that our scrubs include.
  • Cleanse: The cleanse step involves washing your face. Our cleansers are designed to leave your face feeling fresh and clean, not dry and stripped. Some of the ingredients we use to accomplish this are lilac stem cell compound, rice protein, amino acids and oat extract.
  • Nourish: The nourish step involves moisturizing your face with a lotion or cream. We formulated each of our Nourish moisturizers with a specific skin type in mind. We also incorporated hydrating and soothing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, avocado and olive fruit oils, peptides and oat and chamomile extracts.

You can also add to our 3-step skincare with optional (yet very beneficial) products such as makeup remover wipes, serums, masks, peels and eye creams. These products supercharge your skincare routine and deliver even more effective results than the 3-step routine alone. We offer various skincare lines that target the following skincare concerns: fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots and uneven tone, redness and irritation, loss of firmness and acne and pore size.

Be sure to browse the Lancer Skincare online store to see everything that we offer and curate your best skincare routine possible. Don’t forget to grab a sunscreen that you can apply every morning as well!

The 3 Skin Type Sets

We offer three different Lancer Method sets tailored to three different skin types: oily-congested, sensitive-dehydrated and normal-combination. These sets cover the majority of skincare types and ensure that almost everyone can find a Lancer Method set that fits their needs. Here’s how to tell which Lancer Method set you need:

  • Oily-congested: If you struggle with oily skin and clogged pores, this set is meant for you. Many people who struggle with acne do well with this set, but you will also find these products effective if you are mostly worried about controlling oil rather than treating blemishes. Many people also enjoy using this set in the summer when their skin creates more sweat and oil.
  • Sensitive-dehydrated: On the other hand, you’ll want this set if your skin is prone to dryness, dullness, sensitivity and irritation. We designed these skincare products with soothing ingredients that will help to relieve redness and itchiness while ensuring that your skin gets the moisture and hydration that it needs.
  • Normal-combination: If neither of the above skin types sounds like you, then you probably have normal or combination skin. Your skin is neither too oily nor too dry (though you may have some areas that are slightly more oily than others; hence, “combination” skin). This skincare set is designed to help your skin maintain its natural balance without drying it out or smoothing it in thicker formulations.

If you’re still not sure which Lancer Method regimen is right for you, then consider trying one of our skincare travel kits. These kits are the perfect way to sample our products without committing to the full-size products.

This award-winning, at-home face peel features Caviar Lime Extract, Retinol, 10% Phytic Acid, 10% Glycolic Acid, Pineapple and Papaya enzymes….and that’s just to name a few of the key ingredients that target mature skin concerns without the stressing telltale signs that some chemical exfoliants can leave behind. The result is a brighter complexion along with soft, smooth and supple skin.

To use this at-home chemical peel, first start by cleansing the skin with Dr. Lancer’s The Method: Cleanse. (Pro Tip: you’ll want to skip your polish step on this day since your Caviar Peel application will be the exfoliant in your skincare routine.) By thoroughly removing any makeup, dirt and debris first from the skin you ensure that it is ready to be treated and that there are no barriers such as makeup that inhibit the peel from penetrating the skin deeper, faster and evenly. Next, apply a generous amount to dry skin avoiding the eye area, lips and broken skin.

Remember this is an active chemical peel with potent ingredients to reduce fine lines, smooth texture, or help fade dark spots so a tingling feeling lets you know it is working. Follow up by rinsing thoroughly and patting the skin dry. Use can use 1 to 2 times weekly as tolerated.

How to Soothe Irritated Skin Around My Eyes

The skin around our eyes is very sensitive, and it’s very vulnerable to becoming itchy, red, and irritated — sometimes without cause, seemingly. If you are struggling with swelling, itchiness, and inflammation, here are eight things that you can do to soothe irritated skin around your eyes:

Wash the eye area.

To start, remove any contacts you are wearing and gently remove any sunscreen or cosmetic products using a makeup remover. Be careful not to rub or tug on the skin around the eye area too hard since it is already delicate and irritated. Follow it up with a gentle milk or cream cleanser to remove any last traces of potential irritants. Keep your eyes closed during this whole process so you do not get product in your eyes!

Apply a soothing eye serum.

Once your skin is clean, you want to apply skincare products for red irritated skin, ideally an eye cream that has specifically been formulated for the delicate eye area. Take a tiny amount of product and gently rub or pat it around your eyes using your fingertips, being careful not to get it into the eye itself. Ensure that all product is absorbed before moving on with the rest of your skincare routine.

Avoid potential irritants.

When you are experiencing irritated skin around your eyes, it’s important to avoid things that could potentially make it worse. This means avoiding the use of eye makeup, including eye liner, eye shadow, and mascara. If you wear contacts, consider switching to glasses for at least a few days to see if that helps your symptoms. And if you wear a chemical sunscreen, then you might want to switch to a mineral one. Chemical UV filters are more pleasant to wear, but they are known to irritate the eye area in some people.

Protect against sun exposure.

Speaking of sunscreen, you need to be extra vigilant about protecting irritated skin against sun exposure. Wear a quality anti aging sunscreen with protection of at least SPF 30 and, ideally, higher. Reapply it every two hours, especially when you are outside, in the water, and/or sweating. Seek shade when possible and wear a wide-brimmed sun hat to protect your face even more. You should also wear large polarized sunglasses to protect your eyes and reduce the strain caused by the glare.

Use Our 3-Step Skincare Method

Try cold or warm compresses.

Laying washcloths soaked in hot or cold water over your irritated eyes may be helpful for soothing them. Cold compresses are effective for swelling, which is why they’re also one of our favorite treatments for how to get rid of puffy eyes fast. Meanwhile, warm compresses are soothing for achy, tired eyes that are dried out or crusty. Some people also like to alternate between the two so they get the benefits of both hot and cold therapy.

Use a humidifier for dry skin.

If you live in a dry climate, the lack of humidity in the air might be contributing to the irritation around your eyes. Humidifiers are helpful for treating this because they put moisture back into the air, soothing your skin without even touching it. Try getting a small humidifier for your bedroom and running it while you sleep to see if that soothes your skin.

Treat underlying causes.

There are many potential underlying causes of irritated skin around your eyes, including allergies, eczema, and dermatitis. In these cases, it is important to treat the underlying causes; otherwise, symptoms such as irritated skin will continue to occur. If removing potential irritants from your cosmetic routine hasn’t alleviated the irritation, start exploring other possible causes that might be the true culprit behind your irritated eyes.

See a doctor if necessary.

If you suspect that the irritated skin around your eyes is due to an underlying medical issue, then you might need to see a doctor ro resolve it, such as as your primary care physician, a dermatologist, or an optician. If you’re not sure exactly what the issue is, schedule an appointment with your primary care physician, and they can refer you to the appropriate doctor.

At Lancer Skincare, we offer several different soothing serums and eye creams that are designed to help calm down irritated skin. All of our products come with a 30-day money-back guarantee so that you can shop with confidence, and all of our products ship for free in the U.S. as well.

Tips on How to Hydrate Your Skin

Tired of dry, dull skin that’s covered in flaky patches? Want to achieve a smooth, glowing complexion? Proper hydration is key to plum, youthful-looking skin. In this guide, we’ll cover nine essential tips on how to hydrate your skin no matter the season.

Choose a gentle cleanser.

Cleansing can be one of the most stripping parts of your 3-step skincare routine. If you’ve been using a gel or foaming cleanser, that could be contributing to your dry skin. Instead, switch to a gentle cream or milk cleanser that will remove residue without stripping your skin. If you wear cosmetics, be sure to use a gentle makeup remover as well, such as cleansing balm.

Use a hydrating serum.

Hydrating serums have a thicker texture than toners, making them more moisturizing. Look for a serum that contains hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, ceramides, and peptides. For a selection of Lancer Skincare’s hydrating serums, check out our page of skincare products for dry sensitive skin.

Apply a moisturizer frequently.

Even if you have oily skin, you should still be applying a moisturizer every time you wash or rinse your face — and you should definitely be using an anti-aging moisturizer if you struggle with dry skin. Moisturizers strengthen your skin barrier and help to prevent moisture loss by forming a protective layer on your skin. Look for ingredients such as urea, panthenol, and petrolatum that will help to keep your skin moisturized.

Stock Up on Sunscreen!

Wear sunscreen every day.

Sun exposure will dry out your skin and accelerate the signs of visible aging. To help prevent this, wear quality sunscreen every day with a protection of at least SPF 30. When going outside, protect your face with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses. Seek out shade and try to avoid being in direct sunlight, especially when the sun is brightest between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day.

Consider using a facial oil.

If you have very dry skin, then you might want to consider using a facial oil at night. The facial oil can be applied directly on top of your moisturizer to form an occlusive barrier. You can also mix a couple of drops into your moisturizer before applying it if you prefer not to apply a layer of oil over your face. It’s best to do this at night only since a facial oil might cause your sunscreen to break down.

Get a humidifier.

If you live in a dry climate, the lack of humidity in the air can cause the environment to pull moisture out of your skin. You might benefit from getting a humidifier for your bedroom and running it at night to put some moisture back in the air. If you live somewhere very dry, you might also need to get one for your office that you can run during the daytime too. For more reasons that might explain “Why is my skin so dry even when I moisturize?” check out our blog post on this very subject.

Drink enough water.

If your skin is dry, you need to make sure that you’re hydrating it from the inside out as well as the outside in. To that end, you might want to consider tracking how much water you’re drinking each day. If you don’t like the taste of plain water, try drinking herbal tea or infusing it with fruits and vegetables to give it flavor. Watch out for caffeine and alcohol, which can have a dehydrating effect on your body.

Take short, lukewarm showers.

We love a long, hot shower as much as the next person, but unfortunately that is very dehydrating for your skin. Instead, turn the water to a lukewarm temperature and try to keep your showers as short as possible. Also try to avoid soaking in baths for long periods of time, which will dry out your skin further.

At Lancer Skincare, we offer a wide range of products to help keep skin hydrated, including gentle cleansers, moisturizers, serums, and sunscreens. All of our products come with a 30-day money-back guarantee and all orders ship for free within the U.S., no order minimum needed.
