10 tips to maximize
your skin care

Have you finally found products adapted to your skin type? Great! Now you need to know the best ways to use them. Here are the right techniques to get the most out of your beauty care products.

1.
Lightly exfoliate once or twice a week

This way, you eliminate dead skin cells that clog your pores, and maximize your products’ absorption.

2.
Cleanse your face with warm water

Avoid using hot water as it dries and irritates skin. It’s also a good idea to finish your cleanse with a final splash of cold water. The cool water provides a tightening effect on the skin.

3.
Opt for a facial brush

Compared to manual cleansing, these motorized tools allow you to remove more impurities. Use them daily or according to your skin’s sensitivity. Warning: pressing on the brush too hard may irritate your skin. Be sure to go gently!

4.
Spray your face with thermal water

This will prepare your skin to properly receive the cream or serum.
More hydration = better absorption!

5.
Apply your care in the right order

The products applied first will better penetrate the skin and more deeply than those applied last. The logical sequence? Begin with the lightest texture. Your routine should proceed as follows:

6.

Warm your facial cream between your fingers before applying to ensure your skin properly absorbs it.

7.
Thoroughly massage your face

Serums and creams treat deeply and penetrate the skin better when applied with gentle pressure. For care products that act on the surface of the skin, such as sun products, lightly smoothen them onto the skin. And don’t forget your neck!

For an instant boost of radiance, make light circular motions to get your blood flowing, moving outwards from the centre of your face.

8.
Avoid using facial cream around your eyes

As the skin around the eyes is very fine (10 times more than the face!), sensitive and lacking sebaceous glands, it requires special care. Gently apply eye care with a tapping motion below the eye, which also stimulates blood flow.

9.
Avoid reapplying your care during the day

Applying cream to skin wearing makeup is pointless, ineffective and not at all hygienic. However, do feel free to use sun care on skin with makeup, applying it with light pressure.

10.
Be patient

As your skin naturally renews itself every 21 to 28 days (this number increases with age), you have to wait at least a month before knowing whether or not a product is working for you. For products that treat skin more deeply, this takes more like two to three months.
