Having a skin that is cared for every day is not an impossible mission, one that is reserved only for movie stars. Four very simple steps are the beauty secret accessible to anyone.
Taking care of facial skin does not mean spending hours in the morning and evening putting creams behind creams and spending fortunes. There is a very easy routine to follow and it is a true beauty ritual. So simple that everyone can replicate it daily at home.
It consists of only four steps, all of them basic and very fast, repeated in the morning and at night. In total, at the end of the day we spent little more than ten minutes of our time in these gestures that make (much) difference after a few years.
In fact, it is when it comes to the time when age is supposed to be noticed in the face that we give thanks for the ritual that we perform almost without giving. And we realized that all the time spent treating skin was not wasted time but invested.
4 steps: clean, tone, care and protect
The steps to take care of the skin of the face are very simple, but before that it is fundamental to know the type of skin in question to choose the suitable products. As we have already seen, wrong options can have exactly opposite effects. If you have questions about your skin type, you can take the Eucerin test and then just follow these four steps:
1 – CLEAN
Cleansing the skin, done morning and evening is the first step to getting a face taken care of. With cleaning, dead cells and impurities accumulated throughout the day resulting from sweating, sebum, make-up and even air pollution are removed. Clean skin absorbs better the active ingredients present in the products that are applied later, making them more effective.
2 – TONIFY
The use of a toner allows the complete removal of the residue left by the cleanser, helps to refresh the skin and restore its pH, leaving the pores less visible.
3 – CARE
Once cleaned and toned, the skin should be cared for and moisturized. Like the previous steps, this should also be repeated morning and evening. This step can be subdivided, according to the needs of each one:
Special care – It is possible to increase the effect of the day/night cream using products that are called special care ( serums or concentrates), intended for specific situations, for example, spots, wrinkles or dull skin. These products contain a higher concentration of active ingredients, boosting more effective and immediate results. Those who choose to integrate this step into their beauty routine should do so every day, before the day and night creams.
Eyes – This is an area that should be treated with attention, since the skin around the eyes is very thin and delicate, revealing early signs of aging. It is advisable to use a specific cream for eyes, morning and evening. The choice must be made according to the situation that is intended to be resolved or prevented (dark circles, bags or measures, etc.) and according to age.
Hydration – The ritual of care also includes the indispensable moisturizing cream, adapted to each type of skin and age. There are day and night creams as skin needs vary over the hours. For example, some day creams include sun protection factor while those at night are more nutritious in order to help skin regeneration.
4 – PROTECT
Sun exposure is considered the main cause of premature skin aging, so adequate protection is imperative. Several day creams already include sun protection factor (SPF), usually SPF 15, but it is very possible that the skin needs more protection, especially during the months when the UV indexes are higher. The sunscreen should be applied after the day cream or as a substitute.
We suggest the Eucerin Solar Anti-Age Fluid with FPS 50 , a sunscreen with high SPF, specially formulated for the face. It is suitable for all skin types, contains Hyaluronic Acid and can be used as a makeup base.
Now yes. The skin is clean, cared for and protected. Ready to receive the make-up, with the guarantee that it will hold up well, enhancing the desired beautifying effect
