Do you have a tiny bathroom? Does it lack cabinet space? Actually, the small shelf unit between the shower and the washer is big enough. What you truly need is a good decluttering!
1 - When it comes to beauty, less is also more
Healthy skin requires 3 types of skincare products: a good cleanser (non-clarifying), and a well-suited moisturizer and serum. The rest is enticing marketing.
2 – Have a look inside jars
A bit of pasty looking cream in the back of a cabinet? Rancid-smelling skin oil or flaky lipstick? Get rid of them. If you have not used a particular product for several months, that means you do not need it. If you have left it in the cabinet to oxidise, you don’t need it desperately all of sudden.
3 - Gentle and effective cleansing will prevent skin damage (and the need for additional products to fix it)
For whatever reason – being late, tired or in a hurry – never go to bed without having removed the layers of pollution that have built up on your skin throughout the day. This includes excess cream or makeup, and environmental aggressors. Skin is a living organ that needs to breathe. Sebum does its own thing; the rest is up to you. And don’t forget your neck.
4 – Learn how to use products
Apply eye contour cream with the tips of your fingers: lightly tap, do not rub. Blend a bit of serum in with your moisturiser in the palm of your hand to warm up the mixture and to further release the serum’s active ingredients. Layering is in and may have a reassuring effect, but it means overloading your skin.
5 – Take time to properly apply products
Self-massaging techniques are effective; you will need smaller product quantities. It makes sense and saves money. Massage using your hands, or a jade or quartz roller to stimulate blood and lymphatic flow, and tighten your face contour. Smooth out skin along forehead, eyebrows, cheek bones, chin, nose contours. Tap gently, massage carefully: hand motion is just as beneficial as the creams themselves. This takes time, sure. But it’s the most natural way to fight it.
6 – Choose tailored care
What is true for the fashion industry, is also (and especially!) true for the beauty industry. In today’s world, anyone can buy practically any product, whenever and wherever. Personalisation and customer experience are what make the difference. When it comes to skin and hair care, laboratories that are able to offer bespoke care products can solely ensure the maximum effectiveness of their beauty protocols.
7 – Knowledge first
No need to have multiple skincare products. Instead, to begin with, it is crucial to know exactly what your skin needs. Specificities vary from one person and environment to the next, and this further depends on life’s different moments. Hormonal variations, (bad) lifestyle habits, stress, excessive exposure to the sun... the list goes on; you have heard it all before. An objective assessment, however, requires scientific expertise. Get advice. We are always surprised and willing to apply the “customer knows best” approach: a soul-searching (and bathroom) process.
