Do you really take care of your skin?

Did you know that the cream is not the most important step in your face routine? In fact, the crucial step is that of cleaning! We dissected each of the stages of a complete routine.

As a bonus, we explain why it is important to receive a facial treatment about 4 times a year. We start immediately with the routine at home.

1st step: Mooffling

This step is obviously for those who make up. There are several makeup remover on the market. It is important to choose one that is suitable for your skin type! For example, Esthederm offers us milk cleansing hydra -Meress and the . The latter is excellent for reducing the redness of sensitive skin.

2nd step: Clean

Removing and cleaning your face are two different things! Cleaning will eliminate bacteria and make the skin clean. Again, it is important to take care to choose its cleanser according to your skin type. If you do not know exactly what is your skin type, do not hesitate to visit us in the living room to speak with our advisers or our beauticians! People with mixed to fatty skin will prefer a gel texture, while dry skin will rather opt for a cream or milk cleaner. As mentioned earlier, cleaning is the most important step in routine! A good cleanser will allow creams and other products to penetrate better and act well. If you don't clean your face, even an excellent cream will not be completely effective! If you like to spoil yourself with good products, make sure you have a good cleaner at first glance!

3rd step: tonic or lotion

A tonic or a lotion is used first to perfect make-up removal, that is to say to remove the residues. It helps to deal with certain issues. For example, it can be calming for strongly reactive and sensitive skin, but can also be astringent, that is to say, tighten dilated pores. Finally, the tonic is also used to balance the pH of the skin.

4th step (optional): Mist or Booster

This step is noted as optional since we believe that it is more important to focus on the basics. On the other hand, if you were looking to add something to your routine which is already complete, the mist can be very interesting! It is used to improve the efficiency of future care. Mist is also an excellent antioxidant. As for boosters, they are used to give a boost to counter a precise problem. Boosters can be added to your cream (step 7).

5th step: Exfolier

Exfoliation is very important, but can severely damage your skin if it is done too often. We recommend exfoliating the face once or twice a week. Exfoliation is used to remove layers of dead cells and allows you to soften the skin. It allows a more depth cleaning that will make the application of products more effective.

6th step: serum

This part is the more treating part of the whole routine. The serum is the most active product of all: it is he who contains the most active ingredients. It is designed to go further in the skin and treat in depth. We absolutely have to superimpose it with a cream because otherwise, the serum will do the work of the cream, which is not desirable. Instead of doing its work in depth, the serum will remain in surface to protect the skin (role of the cream). So, even if it contains many active ingredients, these will not be used at their full potential. Buying a serum without cream is a bit like buying a cream, but more expensive. It is not very interesting! An essence can be a complement to the serum, but if you hesitate between the two, we advise you to go with the serum!

7th step: Cream

Again, your choice of cream depends on your skin type as well as your needs. There are two categories of cream: day cream and night cream. The difference between the two is that the night cream is much richer. As the skin regenerates at night, it needs more hydration than during the day. day cream, on its side, will protect your skin against external aggressions such as the sun, Pollution, environment and free radicals that are responsible for early aging of the skin.

8th step: eye contour cream

Why not put the face cream on the eye area? Because the skin around the eye is much more sensitive! Too active and too fatty creams can cause issues such as the creation of billium grains, that is to say small skin button. The eye contour cream does exactly the same job as the cream, but for the eye area!

This is a complete skin maintenance routine! Looking at the different steps, do you find that you miss something in your routine at home?
