2019 Bright Start: 10 Golden Rules for Skin Care

Many people start a year with new year's resolutions, how about you? Forbes magazine had done a research, saying 60% of people get the habit of writing down new year's resolutions, however, only 8 % of them achieve the goals. 

It's possibly true that DOING is more important than penciling down goals perfectly. Like taking care of our skin, majority of people know the importance of caring the skin daily, but not everyone nail it everyday. Let's start our new year by having a look on the 10 golden rules to help you take care of your skin on an everyday basis:

Rule 1

Specific care for each skin type

Skin Care Routine

In order to take care of and respect your skin, first and foremost make sure to choose products specially designed for your skin type. Dry skin does not have the same needs as oily skin.

Rule 2

Pay special attention to fragile areas

Lip Care

Some parts of your face (eye contour, lips, etc.) have particularly fine, fragile skin. They need specific care, especially the eye contour and the lips. These areas of your face are more sensitive and deserve special attention.

Rule 3

Gentle cleansing

Taking care of sensitive skin begins with make-up removal.  In order not to stress your skin and to respect its natural balance, make sure to use a pH-neutral make-up remover, specially formulated to cleanse your epidermis gently.

Rule 4

Eyes: a risk area

Eye Care

The eye contour skin is ten times finer than the skin on the rest of the face. Choose a specific routine for make-up removal in this area.

Exfoliation is indispensable

Use a suitable exfoliation treatment once or twice a week. It must be effective yet gentle and respectful. Choose a pH-neutral exfoliation product, which is perfect for smoothing and purifying the skin while respecting its natural balance.

Rule 6

Moisturizing is essential

Moisturizing

The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis, 15%. In order to keep the skin well moisturized, it is important to choose daily moisturizing skin care products that balance the level of water within the skin. You may also use a moisturizing mask regularly, removing the excess with a spring water spray.

Rule 7

Preferably hypoallergenic make-up

Natural make up

To avoid the risk of allergies linked to the use of products that are not suited to your skin, choose hypoallergenic make-up specially formulated to meet the needs of all skin and eye types, even sensitive skin.

Rule 8

Sun protection

Sunscreen

Whatever the season, choose daily skincare products that include solar filters. They reduce the harmful effects of the sun, which accelerates skin ageing.

Rule 9

Watch out for external stress

Pollution, smoke, stress… All these have harmful effects on the skin. Use skincare products to protect your skin against these daily stresses before leaving the house and cleanse your skin thoroughly when you come home in the evening.

Rule 10

Don't neglect the lips

As soon as you feel the need, use a restorative cream for the lips.  Do not hesitate to reapply to this particularly fragile area as often as necessary.

Some habits are essential in order to care for your skin and have a radiant complexion all year long!
