Because we are beings of habit, we are accustomed to getting into perfumery and taking the same old products we know. Our habit often slows down progress and quality results, especially because the skin changes with age and requires different products to keep it good looking. Once you establish a face care routine with products that suite you, introduce new products step by step and one by one. Avoid taking on too many new products at once. This way, it will be easier to spot an intruder if something doesn’t go according to plan. You need weeks, even a month to see the clear effects of facial care routines. First results can be seen in couple of days, and this is often the first skin reaction to new formulations, but real results come with time.
The first step and the secret to glossy and maintained skin is cleansing of the skin. Wearing makeup as well as accumulated impurities, endanger skins health, so it is important to remove all accumulated gunk and allow further products to absorb into the skin more easily. Cleansing routine can be based on eastern routines that have multiple cleansing steps that include micelle solutions or hydrating oils that will remove make-up, then rinse and clean with products such as gels or cleansing foam. Elemis Superfood facial cleansing gel refreshes the skin with ten green tea and nourishes with its probiotic derivatives.
Strengthen the skin, boost it and give it glow with toner. Most toners are water-based liquids, made up of specific active ingredients, including herbal extracts and essential oils; they are tailored to solve different skin type problems. Very popular toners and widely accepted contain AHA, BHA acids, such as REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA tonic, containing AHA acid for faster cellular turn over, BHA acid which serves to reduce sebum, reduce inflammation and reduce the pore size and azelaic acid that promotes hydration and reduces inflammatory processes.
Essences and various serums that address specific skin problems, whether due to lack of hydration, frequent inflammatory processes or lack of vitamins, are step before hydration. Serums are applied in small amounts, often in strategic locations, and quickly absorbed into the skin. Lock them into the skin, make them work harder and help them in binding other active ingredients that follow in the routine with moisturizers.
The next step is a moisturizing cream. Even if you have the best possible skin, hydration is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Given the fact that modern formulations accompany scientific discoveries, it doesn’t come as a surprise that luxury products have amazing results.
