My skincare routine
Good skincare is definitely very close to my heart, as the skin is the mirror of health. When it comes to skincare routine, I choose quality over quantity.
I discovered two great brands called Dermalogica and Kiehl’s a few years ago. When I start using the products; I was so suprised by its great ingredients and good quality, I didn’t want to change it anymore. It’s like they say “never change a winning team”.
In this blogpost, I explain you my daily beauty routine.
A good daily cleansing of the skin is, as you know, very important. Without a good cleansing, the hydrating gels or moisturizers won’t help. So even if it is in the middle of the night, I start with cleansing my skin with a cleanser of Kiehl’s.
I use ‘midnight recovery botanical cleansing oil’. This product with Prinrose and Lavender essential oil can be used by all skintypes. The lightweight oil emulsifies with water to a cleansing milk, leaving a skin clean and replenished, without over-drying.
After my cleasing oil, I use cucumber herbal alcohol-free toner of Kiehl’s. It is a toner made with the finest herbal extracts for a gentle, balancing, and mildly astringent effect. I use this product with a cotton pad.
Two or three times a week, I clean my skin more deeply with the ‘daily microfoliant ‘ of Dermalogica. It is an exfoliating rice-based powder that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter. It helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation while a super-soothing blend of Green tea, Ginkho and oatmeal helps to calm the skin, leaving it clear and refreshed.
Hydrating is a big part of my skincare routine. Having a rather dry skin, I need a rich moisturizer and oil that hydrates thoroughly without leaving a sticky or greasy finish.
I use the ‘intensive moisture balance moisturizer’ of Dermalogica. It is a ultra-rich antioxidant moisturizer for dry skin that help shield against damage caused by environmental assaults. It smooths away the appearance of dry lines and skin damage.
At the end, I use ‘phyto replenish oil’, also of Dermalogica. It is a feather-light oil that reinforces the skin’s protective barrier.
For my work, I need to get up sometimes very early, so adding some extra pampering from time to time, is needed. When I get up from bed, the first thing after washing my face with cold water, is using a refreshing ‘antioxidant hydramist’ of Dermalogica. This helps to firm and hydrate my skin immediately. It’s a skin protective barrier to fight free radical damage and to prevent the signs of aging.
After that I use the ‘pure light’ treatment moisturizer of Dermalogica. As I want good sunprotection, a high SPF is a must. The pure light moisturizer contains SPF 50, so a great protection against UV-induced hyperpigmentation.
After this, I use my daily foundation and other make-up products as you can read on my previous post about beauty.
Where do you find these products? You have a store of Kiehl’s and Dermalogica in every big city, of course on line you can order every product you want.
