When it comes to facials, it’s not always easy to figure out how to pamper your pretty face. Which products to use, and then, in what order and how should they be applied? Don’t panic! I have prepared you a beauty roadmap for an easy and effective facial care routine. Follow the guide!
Cleaning operation in three steps!
Do you ever get into bed without taking off your makeup? Do you think it is enough to moisten your face with a little water to start the day? Think again! These bad practices promote rather the appearance of imperfections, can clog pores, tarnish the complexion and even accelerate the aging of the skin! By adopting a good facial care routine, you will preserve the health and beauty of your complexion. Why not?
Step 1: cleaning
Use a cleanser adapted to your age and skin type. An oily teenager with imperfections will have different needs than a mature woman with thin, dry skin. Assess your skin’s needs to choose the appropriate cleanser.
A purifying cleanser is beneficial for most skin types, at least a few times a week, perhaps even every day. It removes impurities embedded in the skin to make it clean and refined.
Pro tip: Make-up remover wipes are handy but do not thoroughly clean. Be sure to clean properly after removing excess makeup with the wipe.
Step 2: Tone the skin
Those who do not use toner usually do not understand the important role of this product. Thanks to this one, the cleaning is complete. The lotion removes all traces of cleanser and impurity while rebalancing the pH of the skin, which is 5.5. The pH of the water can reach 9.5 depending on where you live and the hardness of the water. After cleaning, the pH of the skin is no longer balanced; your skin must work hard to correct it. But the tonic lotion restores the pH as soon as you apply it, which soothes the skin.
Pro tip: Apply the toner to the entire face by buffering. Never rub your skin when applying the toner at the risk of irritating it.
I like: Nuxe’s soft rose petal tonic lotion. This cool, alcohol-free lotion is enriched with rose petal floral water extracts. It tones the skin to perfection, instantly revealing the brightness of the complexion.
Step 3: hydrate
Morning and evening, you need to restore your skin’s hydration to keep it fresh, soft and comfortable. You can find all kinds of moisturizers, from light lotions to rich balsams. However, most skin reacts well to a formula that retains hydration.
Pro tip: Daily hydration doesn’t stop at the chin! When you apply your day cream, think about going down into the neck, and going up to the cleavage. In fact, the skin in this place is sensitive like that of the face and it is often visible, therefore subject to the same aggression.
To properly clean your face twice a day, daily:
1. Wash your hands well.
2. for a little cleaner into the palm, then gently rub your hands together to warm the cleaner and produce a creamy foam.
3. Gently make circular movements with your fingers to massage and clean your face. This message will activate the blood circulation, which will purify your complexion and improve its radiance.
4. Rinse your face thoroughly with clear, warm water.
5. Dry the skin by tapping it with a clean, soft towel.
6. Apply a toning lotion with a clean cotton pad. Do not rinse. Your skin is now ready to enjoy the benefits of your day or night moisturizer!
