That lustrous, glowing skin that never breaks out. Sure, genetics do play an important role for a healthy complexion, but luck is just a small part of the equation. Most of the time, what seems to be pure genetic luck is a result of a healthy lifestyle, daily maintenance, and good products - a proper beauty routine if you will. Contrary to popular belief, an effective skin care routine doesn’t demand 12 complicated steps, snail-infused sheet masks and an abundance of free time. The essence of a good beauty routine is not combing dozens of complicated products, but rather about finding a
handful of effective ones you can always trust upon - less is more. Here you have a complete mini-guide to a hassle-free, simple, yet effective skin care routine.
Identifying your skin type and your desired result is essential for establishing a
routine that works for you. The skin is the biggest organ of the body and is more complex than you might think, but normal skin types can be categorized as either normal, oily, dry or combination. If you have sensitive skin, taking your time to determine which ingredients and combinations work for you is essential for getting that radiant and
healthy complexion. After having determined your skin type, ask yourself what result you want to achieve. You don’t need to balance your
oily skin if you like that extra glow. We believe that beauty doesn’t have a standard - one size simply does not fit all.
First, remove make-up and surface grime, then deep-cleanse to remove impurities. The multifunctional cleanser, Clean & Calm - Facial Cleanser, is gentle yet effective and results in a radiant, soft and smooth complexion. Use half a pump for both face and décolletage, then rinse off with plenty of water.
The Purify My Skin - Facial Scrub can be used either on its own or mixed together with Clean & Calm - Facial Cleanser for a more tailored, milder effect. The scrub can be used alternately with
the Cell Renewal - Facial Exfoliant, a leave on
exfoliating treatment that opens the pathways for subsequent treatments. It removes dead skin cells that block the skin surface, for glowing, even skin tone, and a soft, smooth texture.
Restore your skin’s PH- balance, hydrate and minimize enlarged pores by layering Moisture On The Go - Facial Mist over the entire face. Either spritz onto the face and décolletage or sweep across the skin with a cotton pad. This spray is also perfect for adding hydration and freshness on the go.
Rehydrate: Starting with the eyes, Eyelighter - Eye Cream is deeply moisturizing with light-reflective, circulation-boosting* properties (*diminishes puffiness). One pea-sized amount is enough for both eyes.
Next, deeply rehydrate the skin by massaging in The Serum - Facial Serum before applying moisturizer... With its anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal properties, The Serum - Facial Serum is the perfect foundation for good skin health. Apply from the hairline down to the décolletage. Follow with the calming and deeply hydrating The Cream - Facial Cream to lock in moisture - you’ll notice the difference immediately.
Use an exfoliant and a face mask one to two times a week to perfect your skin care routine. Using an exfoliant removes any dead skin cells, which block your pores and hinder other products to sink in and work their magic. The superpowers of a face mask smoothen any lines or wrinkles and leaves your skin moisturized, lustrous and cleansed. For when you want an extra intense treatment, use a night mask and wake up with visibly softer and smoother skin.
