We get a lot of questions about
having a skincare routine and where to start, what products to use, etc, etc, So we have
decided to put together the steps of a skincare routine you can stick with and
our recommendations of products to make it easier for you to choose, as we
understand that with so many skincare products to choose from, choosing the
right combination might seem a little overwhelming! But creating a skincare routine can
be fun! To make sure that your routine works for you, you should first consider
what skin type you have whether it is dry, oily, combination or maybe you’re
very lucky and have neither oily nor dry skin!
makeup If you wear makeup, you should remove it before you go to bed every
day! This is such a vital step in a skincare routine!
- Cleanse twice a day You should wash your face twice a day, once in the morning before you
put on makeup and once at night before you go to bed. You should also cleanse
after sweating heavily as this can also clog pores and cause breakouts (plus I
don’t think anyone would want sweat left on their face!)
We recommend: Guinot – EAU
Demaquillante Micellaire Instant Cleansing Water – Suitable for all skin types
including sensitive skin.
- Apply toner after your
cleanser Toner should be applied once you
have dried your face after cleansing. Pop a small amount of toner onto a cotton
pad, and simply wipe over your face. Avoid the eye area as this area is
extremely delicate as the skin is a lot thinner around the eyes. Let the toner
dry on your skin. Also because toner is cold it will close your pores which
will reduce them becoming clogged. You do not need to rinse off.
We recommend: Guinot – Hydra Beaute
Toning Lotion – For Dry Skin
OR Guinot – Hyrda Fraicheur Toning
Lotion – For Normal Skin
- Moisturize your skin. Your moisturizer goes on after your toner absorbs. You can massage your
moisturizer into your skin using upward circular motions to your face and neck.
Alternatively, you can apply it to your clean palms and gently pat it in – this
is the best technique as the moisturizer can then be absorbed into the skin
more than when you massage it in.
We Recommend: Guinot - Crème Fluide
Hyrdazone Moisturising Fluid Day & Night Cream - For all skin types
- Exfoliate once or twice a
week. You should only exfoliate once or
twice a week, or else you may cause damage to your skin. Be gentle as you
exfoliate. Soft movements are all that are needed. Vigorously rubbing or
scrubbing can be harmful!
We Recommend: Guinot – Gommage
Biologique Peeling Gel For All Skin Types
- Wear sunscreen everyday. Daily sun exposure can cause premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and
other problems. Even if you don’t plan on going outside for long, put on
sunscreen before you leave home even on overcast days! Your
sunscreen should be SPF 30 or higher.
