1) Cleaning:

  • Washing your face is one of the most basic and essential steps in any routine, as our skin is exposed to environmental pollutants, dirt and other factors that need to be gently removed every day.

  • Depending on the skin type, cleansing is recommended twice a day, morning and night, to avoid pore clogging, dullness and acne.

  • Mature Skin: Oily.

3) Moisturizer:

  • The most basic function of a moisturizer is to hydrate and soften the skin; It also helps prevent water loss through the outer layers of the skin.

  • This part of the routine includes specific moisturizing creams for the eyes, lips or expression lines (there are day and night).

What’s up with the eye cream?

  • Although the skin under the eyes is thinner and more sensitive and the use of this product is not mandatory, it is recommended to reduce hyperpigmentation, dryness or puffiness.

  • The difference between day and night creams: The creams you apply in the morning are formulated to protect your skin from environmental aggressors that you will encounter when you leave your home. Night creams, on the other hand, focus on repairing any damage with ingredients like retinol to speed up cell turnover and counteract dark spots.
