4 Steps that you must include in your skincare routine for glowing skin
A step-by-step guide to building a skincare routine designed for glowing skin and targeting adult acne.
Regardless of age and gender, a skincare routine is a must in everyone’s daily life, but a lot of people tend to be confused about what products should be used and how many products are required. At Elesya Skincare we have formulated our products and 4-step skincare routine focusing on three stages: cleanse, treat and moisturise.
Cleansing and moisturising may be already second nature for most skincare addicts, but what do we mean by treat? To “treat” our skin, we are talking about using products such as serums with active ingredients and vitamins that enhance the quality of our skin overtime.
Now let’s take a look at our 4-step skincare routine and the products that you will need to have glowing skin and reduce adult acne.
It is very important for us to cleanse our skin and remove any impurities that have come in contact with our face throughout the day. Some of these impurities can cause irritation and inflammation leading to acne prone skin (for more information on causes of adult acne and how to deal with it, check out: 4 things you must do to get rid of adult acne).
Fruit Enzyme Gel Cleanser
When it comes to cleansing, Elesya Skincare has formulated an all-in-one gentle cleanser formulated with white willow bark, papaya, and pineapple enzymes. Our organic natural ingredients are rich with active ingredients such as vitamin C and antioxidants that assist in anti-inflammation and minimises sun and pollutant damage. This gel cleanser can easily remove make up, clear congestion, and improve the brightness, softness, and tightness of your skin without dehydrating it.
Calm & Soothe Toning Mist
To reinforce the work of our cleanser, we recommend incorporating our Calm & Soothe Toning Mist. As cleansing can cause minor agitation to the skin, our toning mist contains aloe-vera and jacaranda flower that has healing and soothing properties that counteract inflammation and calms any redness. A simple spray of the fine mist over your face and neck after cleansing, with its floral scent, can soothe the skin and mind at the end of a tough day.
Facial serums are a very concentrated and fast absorbing product full of active ingredients, capable of enhancing the appearance of your skin with only a few drops. There are different types of facial serums designed to combat various skin problems. For this step we recommend using no more than 2 serums at a time. If you wish to use more than stick to using 2 serums in the morning and another 2 in the evening. This is very important, as using multiple serums at once can confuse the skin with the amount of active ingredients present.
Rule of Thumb
When it comes to using serums always remember to follow a ‘thinnest to thickest’ consistency order of products. After the cleansing stage, apply your thinnest serum to gain maximum benefit then your thicker one.
Personally, when it comes to treating adult acne, I personally use and recommend using our Hyaluronic Acid serum first to deliver a deep burst of hydration to the skin, then our Brightening Serum to improve the tone of my skin. With these serums you will gain youthful, glowing skin in no time!
For a thicker consistency product, consider our Beauty Glow Nourishing Oil right after your first serum to create a dewy and plump look, strengthening the skin to minimise fine lines. A great thing about our facial oil is that you can use it after the moisturising stage as well, by mixing it in with your favourite BB cream or foundation to create a dewy look.
With our final stage, it is all about locking in all the previous steps with moisturisation.
Quench Hydrating Moisturiser
Our lightweight Quench Hydrating Moisturiser is a game changer with hero ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, desert lime and green tea. These ingredients aim to provide your skin with an immediate hydration boost that rejuvenates the skin, enhances its firmness, and revitalises skin tissue. Moreover, the green tea will assist in unclogging pores and reducing inflammation, preventing the occurrence of adult acne.
To maintain the appearance of your glowing skin, remember to apply it to your face morning and night after cleansing, toning and serums.
At Elesya skin we believe in ‘less is more’ and have created products that gives our customers confidence in what they put on their skin. With our 4-step approach to skincare, we hope to provide you with a solution to getting glowing skin.
