CLEANSE THE RIGHT WAY
Ditch the bar soap and use a facial cleanser suited for your skin type. Cleansing gels, milks, and foam all work differently depending on your needs. If your skin is dry, choose a cleansing milk whereas for oily skin, a cleansing gel is more suitable. Gently massage your face with circular motions and be careful not to scrub – over washing and scrubbing can cause your skin to become irritated. Do not forget to finalise the cleansing process by using a toner which removes the final traces of dirt and makeup and helps balance the skin.
PUT YOUR PRODUCTS ON IN THE RIGHT ORDER
Using a full 4 step routine has both short and long term benefits. It maximises the effect of the products you use, giving you better results while it promotes healthier, younger looking skin. Whatever goes on first penetrates best. The first things you put on your skin should have the lightest texture. Then, work your way up to the heaviest, hard-to-penetrate textures, which should be applied last. Begin by cleansing and toning, then apply your eye cream, followed by the serum and lastly use your day or night cream for best results!
PATTING IS THE WAY TO GO
Patting on products is better than rubbing in on your skincare products. It's gentler, because it doesn't tug and pull at your skin, which will eventually contribute to more fine lines over time.
LEARN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
For eye cream you want to make sure you're patting from the inner to the outer corner of your eyes. Apply the eye cream in the outer perimeter of the eye, avoiding close contact with the eyes. For your face; apply from the jawline upward, or from the nasolabial lines outward.
