Routines to beautify your face

April 6, 2021

For many years, the skin has been a great forgotten. Skin care routines and the steps to follow to maintain healthy skin over the years were largely unknown. Fortunately, we are becoming more and more aware of the importance of proper self-care. And we must not forget that self-care also includes skin care.


Daily care for your beauty, your daily routines.

Having specific beauty routines for the face is essential to show off healthy skin and face the effects of time. There are a series of daily cares or routines that do not take more than five minutes in the morning, and five at night, and help to perpetuate the beauty of the face. Let's see the steps we must follow to self-care for our face:

Step 1. The first routine:

Cleansing and removing make-up Thorough cleansing and makeup removal are the basis of facial care. The daily cleaning routine removes dirt, sweat, grease, and makeup. In addition, it prevents pores from clogging and prepares the skin for aftercare. Clean skin can better absorb the active ingredients in care products, so a thorough cleansing is the first step in effective skin care.

As for cleaning, it is increasingly recommended to insist on a two-step hygiene . We will start the first, ideally using cleansers that allow us to remove excess makeup such as cleansing milks or oils, and micellar waters. For the second step, it is recommended to incorporate gels and foams that require rinsing with water to perfect the moment of hygiene.

Also, more and more devices are being incorporated such as sonic facial cleansers and silicone brushes that facilitate the moment of cleaning the face.

Step 2. Apply the tonic

The tonics are a fundamental step in beauty routines of the face, though rarely taken into account. The tonic allows us to return the pH to our skin , a fundamental point to keep it healthy throughout the years. Increasingly, facial cleansers are formulated to respect the natural pH of our skin. Although tonics still play a fundamental role in those skins that have lost their balance and require external help to regain it.

Step 3. Eye contour

The skin around the eyes is very thin and is subject to constant movement, so it is essential to apply products specifically designed for the skin in this area . The skin care routine around the eyes is essential, since it is usually an area where the signs of aging are seen early. In addition, products designed for the eye contour usually contain specific formulas that help to improve dark circles and bags.

Step 4. What is the serum for?

Serums are characterized by having a high concentration of active ingredients , which is why they are usually applied directly to clean skin. They can be applied both day and night, depending on their composition. During the day, those rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E are usually recommended, since they contribute and help protect the skin from external aggressions. At night, it is recommended to incorporate those rich in transforming and repairing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, or retinol.

Step 5. Hydration, a much-needed routine.

Moisturizing the skin is essential to keep it firm and elastic throughout the years. Choose the cream that contains the right ingredients for each need, and apply it with a gentle massage. Ideally, we are looking for a mattifying cream for oily skin, a soothing cream for sensitive skin and an anti-wrinkle cream for mature skin. At night you must repeat exactly the same routine, substituting the day cream for the night cream. Face creams hydrate and nourish, but they also fight blemishes like small fine surface wrinkles , so choosing quality ingredients is important. Each skin requires a special moisturizer, so consulting the experts before purchasing any product is essential.

Step 6. The sun and photoprotection

Ultraviolet radiation is one of the external factors that most contribute to the aging of our skin. The use of sunscreen in our routine every morning is essential if we want to maintain a beautiful, blemish-free face throughout the years. It is very important to incorporate it both in winter and in summer. Sunscreen is not a cosmetic only useful in hot and sunny months. We must protect our skin from the sun throughout the year. Solar radiation includes various spectra of light, and today we know that they are all involved in aging skin and the development of skin cancer over the years. For this reason, in order to achieve correct protection, it is essential to apply a sufficient amount of product and reapply it frequently , ideally every two hours. Likewise, choosing sunscreens that cover us both against ultraviolet A radiation, such as ultraviolet B radiation, as well as visible light is essential. Fortunately, we increasingly find broad spectrum sunscreens (which cover against all radiation) on the market. We must learn to interpret the labels of sun products to ensure that we choose those that offer adequate protection to our skin and are broad spectrum.
