Once you finish cleansing your face, we finally enter the skincare step! A toner helps balance the pH level on your skin, takes away any impurities and minimizes pores.
Usually the textures of toners are watery, so it creates a hydrating effect on the skin. When a toner is used with cotton pads, it helps remove excessive impurities and dirt!
Now we introduce our favourite, serums. A lot of people skip this step but this is crucial for your skin health, and you would not want to miss out on it! Serums are like thick gels that provide rich moisture that penetrate deep into the skin layers.
Made up of smaller molecules, serums deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. This is why serums are great for treating specific skincare concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, breakouts or wrinkles.
Emulsions are then applied above the serum. While lotions consist of a thicker texture, emulsions are lighter in texture and more water based.
Emulsions and lotions are the lighter versions of creams and used to moisturize and soften the skin. In the mornings, emulsion may be used as a daytime moisturizer and a cream for a night time moisturizer.
We move back to treating the eyes by applying an eye cream! Eye creams often help decrease visibility of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes while keeping the skin hydrated. Tissue cells near the eye rim are very thin and delicate, so eye creams are specifically designed for such sensitive eye areas whereas creams won’t absorb as well as eye creams.
When applying eye cream, using your ring finger, gently dab the cream around the eyes but not too hard or it would create more wrinkles! It’s also good to apply eye cream to prevent the look of dry makeup.
Once the eye cream is on, we apply the face cream! The cream provides a type of barrier that moisturizes the skin and keeps all the nutrients from all of the above products in place.
Creams are also one of the products with the highest concentration among the line, which means they don't evaporate easily and keeps the nutrients on the skin for a longer period of time throughout the day.
Finally to top everything off, right before you head for your beauty sleep, time to apply a sleeping mask! Sleeping masks are what help repair your skin throughout the night so you’ll wake up to younger looking skin! They can be used about two to three times a week.
