5 steps to the perfect skincare routine

Starting a skincare routine can be a daunting task, as there are so many products on the market, but it doesn’t have to be complicated.  Here are 5 steps to the perfect skincare routine so that your skin will be healthy, glowing and any skin concerns will be targeted.

Step 1- Cleanse

The first step when it comes to a skincare routine is choosing the right cleanser for your skin type.  Lait Nettoyant Cleansing Milk is ideal for those with super dry skin and can be used on the eyes, lips and face.  Gel Nettoyant Foaming Cleanser is aimed at those with oily to combination skin and works well on teenage skin too.  Eau Micellaire Cleansing Water is also a multifunctional cleanser which can be used on the eyes, lips and face.  It’s perfect for those with skin that’s too sensitive to be rinsed with water.

Step 2- Tone

Next, use the iconic Lotion Yon-Ka to refresh and invigorate the skin. 99% of the ingredients are of natural origin with five essential oils, known as the Yon-Ka Quintessence.  Your skin will love the toning, purifying, hydrating, soothing, invigorating effects.

Step 3- Exfoliate

Adding an exfoliator into your skincare routine like Gommage Yon-Ka Soft Exfoliating Peel ensures that soft, smooth skin is achievable.  It’s a 4-in-1 botanical product that removes dead skin cells, brightens up your complexion while hydrating and rebalancing the skin.  Even those with sensitive skin can use it.  It can be used on the face, neck and the grain-free texture is gentle enough to be used on the eyes too, energising them.

Step 4 – Target

The next step involves targeting your specific skin concerns with a serum.  For hydration, add Hydra No1 Serum into your skincare routine.  It hydrates the skin with hyaluronic acid and antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E intensely nourish the skin, leaving it soft, plump and supple.

For a firming effect, the Advanced Optimizer Serum leaves the skin supple, soft, smooth and toned.  Smoothing and firming Hibiscus peptides help promote collagen and hyaluronic synthesis, while silicium rich horsetail and sweet almond proteins restructure the skin.

If anti-ageing is your skin concern, then the Cellular Code Serum is the perfect addition to your skincare routine.  It’s a  veritable age-defying serum containing Cell Energy complex, a combination of powerful natural active ingredients that fight cellular ageing and help reactivate your skin’s youth code.

If your skin is distressed and in need of repair, you can add Elixir Vital to your skincare routine.  It’s rich in 19 amino acids and a nutritive, soothing, anti-ageing vitamin cocktail which heals the skin, regulates sebum and soothes the skin too.  It allows tired, stressed skin to revitalise itself.

Step 5- Moisturise

With a range of moisturisers available depending on your skin type, you will have no problem finding one.  Hydra No1 Crème is a deep, long-lasting hydrating cream, enriched with hyaluronic acid.  It strengthens the skin’s barrier function and protects the skin too.  Nutri-Defense Intense Comfort Cream repairs and deeply nourishes dry to very dry skin.  It soothes tightness and irritation and brings comfort back to the skin along with suppleness and radiance. Excellence Code Cream effectively treats signs of ageing, pigment spots and loss of firmness and radiance. It smooths fine lines and reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles.
