Good Cleansing Routines to Prevent “Bad Skin Days”
Begin the day with ideal cleansing products for your skin type. Then wash off with a soft cloth. If you have a 2 or 3-in-one product (such as a cleansing, tonic and peeling-in-one), you can quickly skip to the next step.
You may be wondering why it’s necessary to clean your face in the morning after you cleaned away your make-up the night before. Well, it’s at night that the skin recovers, which means in the morning you have more dead skin cells to remove, and more excess sebum to emulsify. These can’t be rinsed away with water, and you need to remove them before applying your other products for your makeup to look beautiful and faultlessly even. (Did you know: At night, the skin has an intense repair and regenerations mode. Up to three times faster than during the day.)
Apply a suitable serum for your skin type or specific skin condition. You can use more than one in order to treat and protect your skin throughout the day with, for example, Birch leaf extract or Retinol (firming), Cloudberry (moisturizer Vit E), Beta Glycane (Soothes irritated skin) or Hyalaronic acid (hydration).
After applying serum, it`s time to protect your skin against everything that the day may throw at it. Sunlight, stress and pollution will all slowly break down collagen and cause loose skin, pigmentation and wrinkles.
An eye cream is essential. Use one that targets your specific needs, such as puffiness, dark circles, fine lines & wrinkles.
A good day cream for your skin type is next in line. For example: Zink (unwanted excess sebum) Hyalaronic acid (hydration) or Alaria esculenta extract (anti age).
It´s a smart move to use a day cream with SPF. But if your day cream doesn´t contain it, then please remember to use SPF in addition.
In the evening, it´s important to cleanse the day away. Start with a gentle Make-up remover and follow with a cleanser for a deep clean. Then apply a night serum and oil, moisturizer, and finally, an eye cream with, for example, peptide (Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles). All suited for your needs.
Once a week during your routine, give your skin some extra care by exfoliating with, for example, Walnut shell or Glycolic acid.
