Step By Step: The Youth Enhancing Skincare Routine

Committing 2 minutes, twice a day to your skin care routine is all that you need to maintain healthy, younger looking skin. A step-by-step routine allows the skin to breathe and makes it more receptive to each product you apply. Read up on, or watch our easy-to-follow four-step skin care routine designed to maximise the effect of your skin care.

1. Cleanse

Cleanser
The first step in the routine is to cleanse the skin from all impurities and remove dead skin cells. This allows products to be better absorbed and deliver optimal results. Use a cleanser morning and evening to remove make-up, excess oil and other impurities.

Toner
Toners soothe and balance the skin’s moisturize level and prepare the skin to better absorb other skin care products. Use a toner to remove final traces of make-up and to leave skin feeling moisturised and tightened, with less noticeable pores.

 

2. Eyes

Eye Cream
The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate which means signs of ageing appear earlier. Eye creams are lighter in texture and penetrate more easily into the skin. They are fragrance free to minimise irritability. Use an eye cream morning and evening to target the eyes’ specific needs such as fine lines, dark circles and puffiness.

 

 

3. Boost

The best way to boost the effect of the day and night creams is to use a serum. Serums contain a higher concentration of active ingredients that penetrate deeper and faster into the skin to deliver even better results. Use the serum every day, before the day and night cream.

 

 

 

4. Moisturise

Day Cream
Finish your morning routine with a day cream, to moisturise and protect the skin against external aggressors such as pollution. Make sure you use an SPF in the morning to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Apply over face, neck and décolletage for maximum protection. Avoid the eye area as it has already been treated with eye cream.

Night Cream
At night your skin is resting and recovering, so it is more receptive to the powerful ingredients in your night cream. Apply to a clean face after the serum, to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance.
