Basic Skin Care Routine:

  1. Remove makeup thoroughly with oil based makeup remover and wash with foam cleanser after. If you use water or makeup wipes, this only removes basic makeup, leaving unwanted residue clogging your pores.
  2. To calm the skin down and to remove any last traces of makeup, make use of a toner.
  3. Use serums before creams. This means eye serum then eye cream, face serum then face cream.
  4. Use sunscreen with at least SPF30/PA+++ or higher to protect your skin against UVA/UVB sun damage. Let’s keep our skin safe!
  5. At least once a week, use a deep cleansing mask. You can alternate this with a mild exfoliating scrub to improve uneven skin tone and to keep skin fresh and smooth.
  6. To further hydrate your skin, put on hydration masks at least twice a week.
