Some years ago, I thought makeup products were the most important issues that I should invest in Beauty. However, I realized that skin care is the key point of everything. But, I understand that without a proper cleansing routine, the nutrition of the skincare products will not be absorbed. The correct cleansing is the first step of skincare. Since then, I realize that having the healthy skin condition is also easier for makeup.
What means “cleaning” to me? When my pores feel fresh and breathable after washing my face, then I think I do it correctly. Here I would like to share with you some of my thoughts that I have learned from my experience.
The proper cleaning way :
There are two kinds of cleansing I do, with makeup and without. In the days when I wear makeup, I remove all colors such as the eyeliner, the mascara and the lipstick with the cleansing oil. And then use the remove milk or cream as the second step to clean the pores. The next, I use the eye remover with cotton pads to make sure the eyes and lips are clean. And then, I wash my face with the cleanser as the last step. In the days without makeup, I only clean with the cleansing milk or cream to remove the dirt from the air pollution or the skin care products that clog my pores.
The proper products :
It does not matter what products you use; they must be gentle and tender to skin after washing. I collect the information I receive from the social media, and then I go to the store asking for testing packs. It is the best way to try new products and find out the proper ones for your skin.
Take it easy and do with hands :
I bought a cleansing machine some years ago; I had felt great in the first several weeks. Afterwards, my skin felt searing and sensitive from the vibrating brush. Not long later, I decided to come back to the most natural way, to clean my skin with my hands. Through massage with my fingers to remove the dirt is a kind of joyful process after a long day. Feeling tender is indeed the point of cleansing.
Give the skin a good scrub regularly :
A good scrub is also the primary routine of cleansing. I give a good scrub twice a week, especially after removing my makeup or before the mask routine. Afterwards, you will realize how smooth the skin is.
Jeanne Piaubert is one of my favorite beauty labels in the recent years; they offer the affordable price range and several categories for different skin types and needs.
I have several cleansing products at home; however, I was looking for cleansing milk or cream for daily using when I do not wear makeup. Last year, I found Jeanne Piaubert has these two cleansing products that are what I need. The cleansing milk is gentle that the skin is tender and hydrating after washing. The scene is light and comfortable; it gives a feeling of doing spa in a beauty salon. I use the eye make up remover water with cotton pads to make sure the eyeliner, mascara and lips are well-cleaned.
We are not able to be younger again through using beauty or skincare products; however, a proper beauty routine that fits your skin type can indeed make your skin brighter and glowing. Since cleansing is the most important step of a skincare routine, we shall spend a bit more time on it and treat it with the tender.
