    Beautiful skin is the perfect canvas for any makeup! Looking after your skin with a proper skincare routine will ensure the health of your face. The easiest and most effective care for your skin is to cleanse, tone and moisturise. These three simple steps take only a few minutes of your morning and evening, but will help you to look beautiful and youthful for longer.

    The products you will need: Cleanser, Toner, Moisturiser.

    Cleansing

    Find a cleanser that suits your skin type. Cleansing your skin will not only help to remove traces of previously applied makeup, but also get rid of dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other pollutants from the face. Cleansing also helps to unclog pores, which helps to prevent acne developing.

    Toning

    Next, use a skin toner suitable for your skin type. Toner helps to balance and soothe the skin after cleansing and prepares it for a moisturizing cream.

    Moisturising

    At night, your skin needs replenishment after a day of exposure to the environment and makeup. During the day, nourish your skin with a day cream, BB or CC cream.

    Don’t forget to hydrate the eye zone with a very light product designed specifically for the delicate eye area.
