Now that we are in the middle of the lockdown, a visit to our salon for a wonderful treatment is unfortunately not possible. But that doesn't mean you can't boost your skin! With our step-by-step plan you give your skin a mini treatment at home that will improve your skin in any case.
1. Create time for yourself
Lock yourself in the bathroom and take some extra time for this treatment. Put on nice music so you can completely relax!
2. We start with cleansers
An important step of any treatment is the thorough cleaning of the skin. To make sure your skin is really clean, clean the skin twice. We recommend using the precleanse or precleanse balm, followed by a cleanser that suits your skin type / condition. Rinse your skin with lukewarm water after cleansing.
3. Time to exfoliate
By regularly exfoliating products are better absorbed by the skin, cell renewal is stimulated and impurities are prevented. There are roughly two different forms of exfoliation: mechanical and chemical. The most famous variant is the mechanical one and is also called scrub. Each type works in its own way and has advantages. Chemical exfoliants are especially suitable for sensitive skin and acne sufferers. You can use mechanical exfoliants if you have normal or oily skin. Take a moment to gently exfoliate your skin. Then rinse your skin well with water, unless you have used a leave-on exfoliant such as the Daily Resurfacer.
These are times when you shouldn't exfoliate and skip this step:
- with sunburn.
- after waxing.
- for wounds and scrapes.
- for very sensitive skin.
- after treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peel or laser treatment.
- when using certain skin thinning medications, such as Accutane, Retin-A and Renova.
A mask is an ideal addition to your care ritual and helps solve skin problems. Apply a thin layer of your mask and leave it on for about 10 minutes. Then remove the mask with water, unless you have a mask that you can leave on.
5. Eye cream
The skin around the eyes is thinnest, which is why you see lines and wrinkles the fastest here. It is therefore important not to skip this part of your face! Apply a small amount of your eye cream. We often see an eye cream applied incorrectly. The right way is: start on the outside and end on the inside!
Mix like a pro with a serum & moisturizer
With a serum you ensure that you can easily adapt your skin care to changes in climate, hormonal cycle or lifestyle. A serum contains powerful ingredients that benefit your skin anyway. A moisturizer is a must because it ensures that the moisture balance of the skin is restored while underlying products are “sealed”. In addition, you protect your skin against external influences. Mix your moisturizer with a few drops of serum in your palm. Then apply it to your face in circular motions.
7. Last but not least: SPF!
The last step is to apply an SPF. Even though it is winter now, an SPF is still important to protect your skin against UV radiation. If you already have an SPF in your moisturizer, you can skip this step, and if you go to bed afterwards, of course!
