Our skin needs special care at all times of the day, to protect it from the inclemency of high or low temperatures and from the particles found in the environment. For this reason, at Lostao we believe that maintaining a daily cleaning routine at night is essential to achieve a healthy and luminous skin. We will give you all the advice you need to get there.
Sometimes, we are very lazy to maintain a habit but, if we want to see favorable results, we have the best beauty trick there is: always remove your skin makeup before going to sleep, every day, without exception.
Why is it so important to keep your skin clean from makeup and dirt? The main objective is to remove any makeup residue that may remain on the face but, beyond that, what is achieved in the long term is that the skin looks much healthier, younger and without imperfections. In addition, you should know that if you do not remove makeup and clean it properly, the effect of cosmetics on it can be reduced even by half.
Tips for a correct make-up removal routine
What are the steps for correctly removing make-up from our skin? Follow these tips and you will discover how to do it and the advantages it promotes.
Start with the eyes
The moment you prepare to clean your face should start with your eyes. Follow an order to remove shadows, eye liner, mascara and then go to the rest of the face without mixing dirt from one area to another.
Thus, we recommend that you remove your eye make up with Natura Bissé‘s Eye & Lip Makeup Remover. The best way to use it is by impregnating the make-up removal pad with the product, leaving it on your eyelashes for a few seconds so that the make-up softens and can be removed more easily, without the need to rub or irritate the eyes.
Cleansing gel for the removal of make-up
Use a cleansing gel to remove your makeup properly and not let any makeup escape. Apply to wet face with a gentle massage and then rinse off. This will remove any dirt and revitalize your skin.
From Lostao we propose Valmont‘s Bubble Falls which will help you to carry out a deep cleaning based on saponins, vegetables that care and pamper your skin besides controlling the sebaceous secretion, reducing the open pores, hydrating and illuminating your skin.
We have a tip for you! When rinsing the cleansing gel do not use very hot water because it can remove the natural oils from your own skin, even irritating it. Therefore, the best option is to rinse with lukewarm water and, if you are brave, a last rinse with cold water will revitalize your skin and activate the blood circulation.
Dry your skin with clean elements
It is important that once the skin is completely clean and dry with a new tissue or towel to avoid problems or possible infections. Another important piece of information that you may not have thought of is that it is not necessary to rub it out to dry, as this irritates your skin. Just gently pat it dry.
Always use tonic
You may not feel it is entirely necessary, yet it brings many important benefits to your skin. The tonic manages to soften the effect that water chlorine can have on our skin after cleansing, as well as refreshing, purifying and toning the skin, balancing its pH. If you still do not have a tonic in your toilet bag, we recommend our Active tonic I. Always have one near.
Perform upward movements
Believe it or not, it is very important to take into account the movements you make when applying the products to your skin when removing make-up. If you do it with upward movements, from the neck to the forehead, you will manage to stimulate the microcirculation. By the way, never forget to remove make-up from your neck.
Last but not least, you must know your skin type and its needs in order to use those products that best suit it.
