5 Steps to Flawless Skin
Every woman wishes for a flawless complexion. Impurities, enlarged pores, redness and other blemishes, however, make their dream burst like a soap bubble. What to do? Only when cleansing and care go hand in hand, glowing skin is ensured.
STEP 1: CLEANSING IS A MUST
It is the premise for a beautiful complexion: facial cleansing. Not only does it remove makeup, sweat, sebum and impurities from the skin’s surface, it nourishes the skin at the same time. Due to the overproduction of the sebaceous glands, impure skin tends to be large-pored and oily. In order to improve the keratinized skin structure, cleansing products should not only remove makeup but also reduce the sebum layer.
STEP 2: MAGIC WATER
Refining of the pores is especially recommended when taking care of large-pored, blemished skin. This helps softening the upper layer of the skin. Furthermore, a toner helps remove impurities and possible cleansing residues, whereas the included astringents shrink the pores. Besides, it clarifies and revives the complexion while ensuring that the active components of the following care are easily absorbed into the skin.
STEP 3: LESS IS MORE
Hello summer! With the summer being at the ready and the sun brightening our spirits, the sebaceous glands, too, are awakening from hibernation: Due to the increasing UV rays of the sunlight, the metabolism is encouraged, the hormonal balance changes and the sebaceous glands start to produce more sebum.
This is why a light face lotion – including UV protection! – is the ideal care for normal skin during the summer months. For those who have oily, blemished and large-pored skin, experts recommend using a special facial regimen tailored for the specific needs of impure skin.
STEP 4: NEW SKIN, NEW YOU
The upper layer of the skin, also called epidermis, renews itself every 26 to 28 days. During that time, new skin cells are produced while dead skin cells come off. Unfortunately, the skin then appears pale and dull, or even oily and blemished. A peeling helps to remove dead skin cells and excess sebum, giving the complexion a wonderful glow. Skin feels refreshed, soft and smooth.
STEP 5: CONCEALER
Skin blemishes and redness are easy to conceal using a cover stick from time to time throughout the day; just make sure it’s a well covering texture. When having reddened skin, green cover sticks are ideal to neutralize red spots; apply some skin-colored concealer afterwards to achieve a more natural look. In order to balance bluish shadows under the eyes, a product containing yellow pigments works best to even out the skin tone.
