Tired features, dark circles, dull complexion... fatigue has left its mark? Quickly remedy the situation by adopting a skincare et and makeup routine tailored to your skin. Good moisturizing products, a makeup bag and 5 steps: here’s everything you need!
The basics: efficient skincare
1. Sweet dreams for your skin
Every evening, take the time to remove your makeup thoroughly (a must to let the skin breathe, avoid imperfections and preserve your glow) cleanse your skin thoroughly. Then, apply a few drops of serum and cover your face and neck with night cream.
The effect: While you sleep, your skin gets to work, busily repairing the assaults of the day and ridding itself of toxins and accumulated waste. It’s at night that cell renewal and blood circulation are the most active and your skin is most receptive to care! There are so many reasons not to skimp on skin care…
The right choices: Choose formulas rich in moisturizing and regenerating agents, which will promote tissue repair and cell renewal. Give yourself a facial massage by applying your products in small circular movements from your neck up to your forehead, which will relax the muscles and stimulate circulation.

2. Wake up your skin
When you get out of bed, after a gentle cleansing, apply a day cream to your face and neck. One or two times a week, offer yourself a gentle scrub or peeling before applying cream.
The effect: If night care helps your skin repair itself, day care is essential for protecting it. The barrier it creates helps your skin retain water while preventing everyday aggressors (like dust, pollution, sun, blue light, etc.) from causing too much damage. An effective exfoliation helps because the removal of dead cells restores radiance to your skin, enabling it to better absorb products. You get lasting hydration and optimal radiance!
The right choices: be sure to find a cream with a formula and texture suitable for your skin type. This is crucial for the cream to be effective. For exfoliation, use a non-abrasive product that unblocks your pores without causing your skin any undue stress.

3. Let there be light
Start by covering your face with an illuminator: no light, no glow!
The effect: This step will allow you to accentuate the glow of your skin without making it look unnatural. Underneath other products, the illuminator will give the impression that light is coming from within–the very purpose of a beauty routine!
The right choices: Use an iridescent stick to illuminate certain areas of your face (cheekbones, tip of your nose, heart of your lips, chin, brow bone, center of your forehead, etc.), or use a primer mixed with pearly pigments. If you’re short on time, just mix a few drops of liquid illuminator with your day cream.
4. Unifying your complexion
After a base of illuminator comes the anti-fatigue duo par excellence: a thin layer of foundation and a little concealer.
The effect: By reducing imperfections and signs of fatigue, these products will refresh your complexion and brighten your look.
The right choices: light, translucent, moisturizing formulas work best and will go completely unnoticed in the light of day. But be sure to use shades that match your complexion.

5. A TOUCH OF BLUSH
The proverb says it (or not…): well-used blush is your glow’s best friend.
The effect: By adding a touch of colour to the cheeks, the blush will make your complexion appear fresh and healthy.
The right choices: Use a cream or gel blush that will keep your skin supple and moisturized, and that you can also use on your lips. Also, make sure to pick a colour that suits your complexion : per example, choose a soft pink shade if your skin tone is cold, and use a coral hue if it's warm.
Other tips for a healthy glow:
- Drink a lot of water throughout the day; it’ll give your moisturizing products a boost;
- Try to get enough sleep – around six to eight hours – whenever possible;
- Apply sunscreen every day after your makeup (even if your products already contain SPF!) and reapply it as often as necessary throughout the day.
