Forms a barrier, locks in moisture and nutritients

Once you get all the nutrients on and into the skin layers, you don't want them to evaporate into the air. That's why you should seal it with a firmer product so that the layers before it are better absorbed to do their job.

Not only do moisturizers seal in the previous products, they also moisturize your skin. In addition, they form a barrier against pollutants, making it more difficult for these fine particles to get into the pores.

Moisturizers come in many types of textures. Choose a type according to your skin type and/or needs for each season.

 

Face oils

[massage a few drops on face as a moisturizer, or mix a few drops in other skin care products such as serum, lotion or cream to make it more occlusive] 

A facial oil can be added to the routine depending on the season for anyone who needs an extra boost or wants smoother, softer and more elastic skin with a natural glow. Great for the colder periods and/or for dry, dehydrated and flaky skin.

 

9. EMULSIE - light

[pat the product in the morning or evening after toner and / or boost & treatment]
(oily, acne-prone, summer)

A light moisturizer, usually water-based, sometimes misplaced as a member of the essence / serum / ampoule family. People with combination skin or oily skin often choose this type because it is a bit lighter in texture but still provides enough hydration. - If you have dehydrated skin, you can first apply an emulsion to the skin before a lotion or cream.

9. GEL-CREAM - medium

[pat the product in the morning or evening after toner and / or boost & treatment]
(normal, combination, oily, dry, acne-prone, spring, summer, autumn, winter)

Gel creams are often somewhat firmer than lotion types and have the light and refreshing characteristic of gel types. Since gel creams contain more oils and emollients than gel types, they will also feel firmer on the skin. It is suitable for all skin types throughout the year and ideal for those with sensitive skin that needs a good moisture barrier.

9. CREAM - heavier

[pat the product in the morning or evening after toner and / or boost & treatment]
(normal, combi, dry, spring, summer, autumn, winter)

Creams are often thicker as they contain more oils, therefore a cream will also bring more oil to the skin barrier and is therefore ideal for those with dry / dehydrated skin. It is also excellent to use during the colder days in autumn and winter.
