We all have heard about the tips on how we can achieve beautiful, glowing skin. “Drink water, have enough 8-hours of sleep and limit the sun exposure,” they say. Some of us get lucky and we were born with naturally smooth skin. Some of us are not. So we always end up spending a lot of money every year just for health, skin care and beauty products. Thus, we came up with 5 steps with the best skin care products on how you can get that amazing skin:
Step 1: The Cleaning
How hard it is for you to clean your skin even after you’re wiping it off with make-up remover? Get rid of it. With Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift 2-in-1 Cleansing & Micro-Firming Massage Device. It’s understandable how frustrating it can be to remove all the sweat, dirt and oil on the skin. But washing your face with just your hands will never be enough.
With a cleansing device like Clarisonic, it can easily cover every inch of your face and neck. Most electric face cleansers are equipped in cleaning the pores. Do you remember that smooth skin you feel after a good face scrub? That’s the kind of feeling we are talking about but three times better. Clarisonic Revitalizing Cleanse Brush Head assists in minimizing the pores, thus making the skin feels gentler. It also relaxes the skin by massaging. You can expect the disappearance of wrinkles and dry lines after one week. It does feel like going to the spa, except you’re doing everything at home.
If you stick to a regimented skin care routine, you can expect to be getting the result between week 2 and week 8. Apply your face cleanser to the wet brush and by using circular motion, move the device gently all over your face and neck. Make sure your skin is damp wet. For this step, you can use L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam which contains floral water of Immortelle. The key to choosing cleansing products is knowing what kind of skin you have. If you have oily or combo skin type, this product is definitely worth a try. Since L’Occitane is a plant-based company, you can expect little to none chemicals in the products.
Step 2: Serum-ized Your Skin Part 1
By this time, we expect you have already applied your toner but not your moisturizer. Applying toner right after cleaning your face is important if you have acne-prone or oily skin. TruSkin Naturals Vitamin C Serum is a powerful anti-aging formula. It is filled with Hyaluronic Acid and can make your skin feels more revitalized. If you want to look young, that is exactly what this serum is going to give you. Shrinking the pores, preventing breakouts, clearing up acnes or even minimizing the appearances of acne scars are exactly what this serum will do. Oh, yes. You can use it on your neck and for all animal lovers, fret not. It’s cruelty-free and never been tested on animals.
Step 3: Serum-ized Your Skin Part 2
What is better than applying a serum onto your skin? Yes! Applying two different types of serum. The reason why is because you want to give your skin the full cover of your skin care routine. For a radiant glow and luminous skin complexion, we suggest you try step 3 with L’Occitane Anti-Aging Divine Extract. This serum is best applied early in the morning after washing your face and before your moisturizer. Also, later in the evening before you are going to bed. The essential oils found in this serum are none others than myrtle and immortelle. It helps in preventing your skin from losing the firmness. If you have dark circles or heavy eye bags, this is the exact serum that you will need.
Step 4: Time for Face Cream
Face cleaning, toner and serum are not enough. You have to complete the skin care regimen by applying a face cream. Did you know that without moisturizer, your skin is prone to drying out and sun damage? As we age, face cream has become one of the vital skin care products that everyone should have. For a youthful glow, L’Occitane Anti-Aging Divine Cream seems like a good choice. It was given the award of the Best Miracle Cream in Anti-Aging Beauty Bible 2012. Can you believe that? The active ingredients found in it are all plant-derived, just like most of L’Occitane’s products. This divine cream helps in nourishing, comforting and rejuvenating the skin. Apply it every time after you are applying the L’Occitane Anti-Aging Immortelle Divine Creme onto your skin.
Step 5: Complete It with an Eye Care
Dark circles under the eyes are usually caused by the thinning of the skin or the loss of collagen. If you are taking certain medication, your blood vessels would also dilate. Seasonal allergies, regularly sleeping on your stomach and even rubbing your eyes excessively are all the contributors to why you have dark circles. Most people tend to shy away from having photos of them taken whenever their eyes are exposed. But most beauty and skin care companies are aiming in coming up with some of the best eye creams. L’Occitane Divine Eye Cream has plant-based active ingredients. It helps in diminishing any signs of aging around your eyes. All you need is the smallest drop to cover both of your eyes. Make sure you apply this as the final step of your skin care routine before putting on your make-up.
