It starts with a clean canvas
Picture your face as a canvas. Like most artists, you want to start your routine with a clean canvas. To start off, it is necessary to remove all the dirt before you start out with your skincare routine.
Everyday our skin gets in contact with dust, sunscreen, makeup, and many other pollutants, especially those living and working in urban areas. Once a while you might want to cleanse your skin throughly by removing all the dirt, dead skin cells and blackheads that has been clogging up your pores.
1. MAKEUP REMOVER / OIL BASED CLEANSER
[first step right after coming back home every night]
Start your evening with removing the top layer, which is all the makeup and dirt (pollution, dust, sweat and bad oils) that has been building up on your face during the day. // An oil based makeup remover is perfect to remove oil based make up and for oily skin types, because water cannot remove oil, but on the contrary, oil can melt away oil.
Always apply an oil-based cleanser to dry skin because oil does not mix with water. Take the oil between the palm and let it warm up before you apply it to face. ~ Once on face, give yourself a facial massage, it not only feels good but this also ensures that the oil will do its job better.
* Do you have oily skin and a lot of pimples and acne? Then try to start your morning with an oil-based cleanser.
2. WATER BASED CLEANSER
[to start your everyday morning and night routine]
To remove the dirt and the makeup residue on your skin. // Lather the product on the palms of your hands and gently massage it on your face in circular movements. Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry your face with a clean towel (make sure to use a clean one everyday). Or remove the water from your face with clean hands.
3. DEEP CLEANSING - EXFOLIATOR
[1, 2 or 3 times a week after cleansing]
By exfoliating, you remove the accumulated layers of dirt, dead skin cells, sebum and flakes that has been settling in your pores. It promotes cell renewal, ensures you a radiant skin and eliminates fine lines.
But never overdo it by such as scrubbing, rubbing too hard or exfoliating too much. This can cause your skin to become irritated, inflamed and even to age faster.
Dead skin cells can be seen as a natural protective layer on your face that protects the skin against the sun for example. -- By removing this, your skin will become thinner and therefore more sensitive to the sun. -- So always make sure to put on the right sun protection (SPF30 or higher) after exfoliation.
Skin improvement is being patient! It is important to give a new skin care routine/product a trial period of at least 1 month since your skin will renew its cells each 28 days. In case you notice (a small) dfference, please try another 2-3 months.
