My #1 Skincare Hack Is Not At All What You Think

I am a licensed esthetician, and I can’t tell you how many of my clients are leaning into quality skincare and seeing great results. But, they still want to know what else they can add to their routine to keep their skin happy, healthy, and glowing. 

Maybe you are someone who has already invested in a great skincare routine and want to incorporate something easy to go the extra mile. You might be someone whose skin feels dull now with the cold weather. Or maybe….you just want this esthetician’s unexpected secret to glowing skin? Well, it might come as a surprise. The easy secret to my happy skin? My Canopy humidifier.

Why is Skin Hydration So Important Anyways?

Keeping your skin properly hydrated is key to a healthy moisture barrier, fighting dryness, and easing skin sensitivity. Just like drinking 8+ glasses a day does your body good from the inside out, a humidifier can create air that hydrates your skin from the outside in. Even better? Hydrated skin absorbs your fancy skincare products better and improves their overall efficacy. It’s easy–all you have to do is turn on your Canopy humidifier. No 10-step skincare routines here.

You know how we estheticians recommend you apply your products to a damp face or mist between layers to help absorption? Same idea here! Over time, skin with proper moisture levels is also less prone to fine lines and wrinkles, too.

Why Canopy?

So why should you invest in a Canopy humidifier over all of those other brands out there? Simply put, this is one intelligent humidifier! It has built-in sensors that adjust the moisture output day and night. It also features dishwasher-safe parts because a clean humidifier is a healthy humidifier. And with a 2.5-gallon tank that runs up to 36 hours? You can look forward to fewer refills and consistently skin-loving air. Another plus of Canopy is that one humidifier covers a room of up to 500 square feet. I like to keep mine in my bedroom, but you could absolutely use yours in your living room.

I have to admit that one of my favorite Canopy features has nothing to do with its skincare benefits. Canopy offers many different essential oil blends. My first blend was the Canopy signature scent Unwind, a beautifully clean blend of bergamot and white tea that leaves my room smelling fresh. Each oil arrives with an aroma puck you place in a diffusion well over the machine’s vent. Add a few drops of the oil to the puck, and enjoy instant spa vibes. You can also sign up for auto-delivery of the scents and paper filters, which makes refreshing your air effortless.

My Recommended Skin Ritual

So, how do I incorporate my Canopy humidifier into my daily skincare ritual? It’s super simple: First, I keep my water tank full – always! I like to have my Canopy running day and night in my bedroom, especially in the colder months when the air is aggressively dry in my house. I can literally feel the difference between my bedroom compared to other areas of my house.

In the AM, I rinse my face with a gentle cream cleanser, apply a vitamin C serum, and finish with an SPF moisturizer. In the evening, I cleanse with an oil cleanser, apply my retinol and my eye cream, and finish off with a heavier night cream to seal in my skin's moisture. I have noticed a significant improvement in my skin’s firmness and radiance after adding my Canopy humidifier to my routine. I also use less product, since Canopy helps my skin absorb products more efficiently. I’m truly obsessed with how little effort it takes to level-up my skincare game (without adding in tons of expensive products).

If you’re looking for an unexpected addition to your skincare routine that also happens to look great in your space, improves your home’s overall air quality, and creates a fragrant and serene space with minimum effort, you really need to invest in a Canopy humidifier. It’s the easiest way to look your best, by far. Your skin will thank you!
