Daily Facial Skincare Routine21/12/2021, Lefay Resorts
A good skincare routine requires regulation and discipline. It demands time, attention and several steps; it is also highly personal as the products that you will use will depend on your skin type and personal needs. Lefay's beauty experts have tried to simplify and summarise this process with the following suggestions below.
The night is a key stage for your skin, as it regenerates while sleeping so it's great to undergo intense treatments at this time, like Vitamin C or acids, thanks to the lack of any sun or exposure to any external agents. Firstly, apply a gentle cleansing milk using a cotton pad (for those who prefer natural methods, drops of olive oil will do) and massage focusing the on eyes and lips. After that, rinse your face with water and a creamy product (avoid foamy fluids). Dab with a clean towel and a face tonic to remove the last residuals of make-up and optimise the absorption of the cream. Lastly, apply your serum and night cream followed by eye contour according to your skin type. The night is also a good time to use specific face masks according to your needs. Also, a small touch of castor oil on your eyebrows and lashes helps to build strength.
During the day lighter serums and creams are a must. Usually, moisturising and soothing are the most appropriate. It is important not to forget them, even if you are tired. Consistency and perseverance will give your skin a brighter and healthier look.
For those who have problems sourcing the best beauty products, Lefay's beauty experts have kindly shared below three different recipes for homemade facial masks, that have been created for different skin types, When applying them, avoid the eye contour area and leave them on your face for 15/20 minutes. Rinse with water and apply your hydrating cream to finish.
Homemade Face Mask For Oily Skin
Egg white has a smoothing effect and stimulates cell regeneration, while lemon brightens and baking soda purifies.
- 35g of egg white
- 1 squeeze of lemon
- 55g of baking soda
Mix until you get a creamy compound. If you feel some tingling, that is normal: lemon and baking soda together stimulate facial circulation.
Homemade Face Mask For Sensitive Skin
For skin which easily gets red or irritated, cucumbers and potatoes offer calming properties. Ginger is anti-inflammatory and yoghurt balances your hydration within the skin.
- ½ cucumber or 1 potato
- ¼ grated ginger
- 1 scoop of natural yoghurt
Add the yoghurt, grated cucumber or potato and grated ginger, then mix until you get a creamy compound.
Homemade Face Mask For Dry Skin
Sugar is a natural wetting product, honey helps nourish and strawberries are an antioxidant.
- 20g of honey
- 1 pressed strawberry (55g)
- 20g of sugar
Press the strawberry and add the honey and sugar. If the mixture is too thick, add some lukewarm water.
