Here are the products that should be part of your facial routine. Always choose each specific product for your skin type.
1. Remove your makeup
All worthy skin should remove make-up at the end of the day. Keep in mind that makeup is like a layer that covers the skin and does not let it breathe freely. If not cleaned, makeup could clog pores and prematurely age skin. In addition, you can remove your skin in several ways, although the most recommended for a first facial cleaning is to use oil-based facial cleansers since they better remove the remains and residues left by makeup on the skin.
Thus, if you are addicted or addicted to waterproof makeup, for deep and restorative cleaning, consider using biphasic oils to remove makeup from your eyelashes, leftover eyes, or eyebrows, as they are much more effective than other facial cleansers.
2. Cleanse your skin
Play the second cleaning! Choose a water-based facial cleanser to remove any remaining impurities. It can be cleansing milk, facial soap, micellar water for sensitive skin, or even your homemade makeup remover.
3. Exfoliate your skin
First of all, you should know that it is advisable to exfoliate your skin once a week if you have combination or oily skin and once every fifteen days when you have sensitive or dry skin. Based on this information, you can choose the facial scrub that best suits your skin type. Always remember that the choice must be made around how your skin is and do a test to prevent adverse reactions.
Exfoliation is important to remove all blackheads, regulate sebum production and, in general, detoxify the skin of all the concoctions that we use daily.
If you don’t know how to exfoliate your face, here we show you the best tricks, tips, and recommended products.
4. Apply your facial toner
When your skin is clean, apply a facial toner of your choice to calm it and close open pores. One of the tonics that best suits any skin type is the homemade rice water toner.
The way of applying the tonic is very simple. If it is in aerosol format, place the bottle 20 centimeters from your face and spray in the shape of a cross. If your toner is in normal format, apply a little on the palm of your hand and then rub it on your face with light touches.
5. Apply your serum
After the facial toner, you should apply your confidence serum. Serums are products that contain a higher concentration of active ingredients that are very beneficial to combat wrinkles and skin blemishes.
If you have never used it, consider including it in your beauty routine only if you are over 25 years old. You can buy them in any cosmetic store or make your own facial serum based on 100% natural and very effective products.
6. Moisturizing facial mask
As what you want is to repair the skin, pamper it and, above all, hydrate it, it is essential that you have a hydrating mask. The best is undoubtedly tissue-type facial masks, which come with different ingredients and adapt perfectly to the shape of your face. Also, some of them are very inexpensive.
7. Apply your eye contour
Did you know that the skin around the eyes is finer and more delicate than the rest of your skin? Hence, it is very important to know how to protect and care for your dark circles (whether you have them or not).
When you have your eye contour handy, apply with your fingertips, lightly tapping. With this action, you prevent wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Let the product soak in for a few seconds before applying your anti-wrinkle or moisturizer.
8. Apply your moisturizer
We are finishing with this deep and very restorative facial cleansing. And as in any skincare routine, you must apply your moisturizer or your anti-wrinkle cream. Remember that antiaging creams should only be used after they are over 30 or 35 years old.
