Our skin is unique, and has very specific needs. There is no secret, the success of a radiant and healthy skin certainly lies in the consolidation of its beauty routine.
It is not always easy to develop a skincare routine, the trick is to target your needs as precisely as possible.
To do so, don't hesitate to come and talk to our experts in the boutique. They will be happy to answer your every question and develop a customised treatment routine for you.
Of course, this routine will require you to be rigorous, but you will see that lasting results will come quite fast. These benefits will also have a positive impact on your self-confidence, a real challenge.
Cleansing Milk - La Mer (creamy and soft, can be used with or without water).
Purity of Absolution Cleansing Gel (fresh, desensitizing thanks to oats and roman chamomile).
Cleansing Oil - Whamisa .
Skin cleansing is the most important step. Like the body, the face requires special hygiene. Most of us sweat, put on make-up and live in a polluted environment..
For this step there are several possibilities, but we have noticed a very strong demand for the "Double Cleansing", a technique originating from Asia.
This first step, which is part of your evening routine, consists of dry massaging your face with a water-soluble make-up remover oil.
This is done to dissolve and get rid of make-up, possible sun protection or excess sebum. This will not alter our precious hydrolipidic film (a precious natural protective barrier with antibacterial acid PH). This massage will be done during one minute, before passing your hands under water and emulsifying it on the face and before the final rinsing.
The second (which happens to be the only cleansing step in the morning) consists in choosing the texture of your cleanser according to your skin type and its needs.
The second (which happens to be the only cleansing step in the morning) consists in choosing the texture of your cleanser according to your skin type and its needs. If your skin is rather dry, you'll want to work with a naturally oilier cleansing cream to pre-nourish your skin. If you have combination to oily skin, a mild gel cleanser will do the trick.
Jojoba face scrub - Malin+Goetz
Daily Microfoliant - Dermalogica (enzymatic exfoliant suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive)
No matter how much you invest in the best quality of skincare, until your skin is properly exfoliated, you will never achieve an optimal and 100% satisfactory result.
Indeed, exfoliating your face properly will allow a better penetration of your skin care products. These will concentrate on the cells with a real need for hydration and not the dead cells ready to peel off.
You will be able to refine your skin texture, reduce the appearance of dilated pores and fine lines, blur possible hyperpigmentation spots linked to age and overexposure to the sun, eliminate the "grey mine" and thus play on radiance (hello smokers).
The exfoliant (with or without grains) will cleanse your skin deeply and leave it soft and clear. Exfoliation is not necessary on a daily basis. Generally, twice a week is sufficient. As you go along with your personal experience, you will take the time to observe your skin and understand its reactions to exfoliation. If your skin shows signs of discomfort, space out the exfoliation so that it will not aggresse your skin.

"Grain" scrub (1 to 2X/week) (choose a soft pumice stone grind, or a fruit or nut stone grind)➔parfait for thick, non-sensitive skin.
Enzymatic Scrub (2 to 3X/week on average) Let's take the example of Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant created for daily use, but it may be a bit too much for some more sensitive skin types...
The Daily Microfoliant contains salicylic acid that will cleanse your pores deep down and prevent the appearance of imperfections. Papain extract to even out the complexion and blur hyperpigmentation spots and finally rice bran that will give you a matte finish all day long. It smoothes the skin texture it is great!
Exfoliants with fruit acids for the experts, (AHA BHA ...) often to be applied in the form of a jelly mask (+ / - 5 minutes) or in the form of soaked cotton pads often to be rinsed after 5-10 minutes) 1 to 2 X / week.
Exfoliating your skin will also stimulate cell renewal, yes exfoliation is interesting as an "anti-ageing" action!
TB&Tea Tonic - Aesop (soothes and suits a wide range of people)
The toning lotion, applied with a cotton pad, completes the skin cleansing.
It has the action of cancelling the action of the limestone on the skin, dislodging the remaining impurities and possible residues of cleaning products. Your skin will then be ready to receive the rest of your treatments.
In addition, it will give you an immediate burst of radiance and freshness! There are as many varieties as there are skin types.
Instant Smoothing Serum - Grown Alchemist (a real concentrate of hyaluronic acid, it helps keep skin hydrated from morning to night).
The serum is essential to support the long-term effect of your day cream, it acts in a complementary way with the latter. Each skin type has its own serum, depending on your skin type, you will be able to find the one that suits you the best..
The serum often responds to a problem (hydration, anti-blemish action, anti-gravity, etc.) but in most cases it is not sufficient on its own.
Indeed, having an aqueous texture, it will deliver a real bomb of active ingredients and will literally increase its effectiveness tenfold. This is why, it is necessary to apply in addition a moisturizing cream which, as for it, will come to bring the comfort that a serum alone, will not be able to bring.
Creamy Eye treatement with avocado - Khiel's
Get a sparkling look with a targeted treatment that respects the delicate eye area.
The skin around the eyes is 5 times thinner than the skin around the cheekbones. Hence the importance of never applying more than half a grain of rice per eye to avoid overloading the area with product and thus creating bags.
Don't wait until you have dark circles or fine lines before using an eye contour product. It should be tackled well beforehand to strengthen fragile skin, allow it to stretch and combat the effects of fatigue and time.
The ideal is to start using it at the first signs of age or skin aging.
Advanced Renewal Cream - Malin+Goetz
Regenerating night cream: neuro-peptide & violet leaf extract - Grown Alchemist
Last step which is the basis: the moisturizer. It's sort of there to seal in the moisture, keeping all the previous layers firmly in place. Its usefulness is therefore paramount.
A point of attention that has all its importance!
We are bombarded with UVB but UVA rays also penetrate the clouds and cause premature aging of the skin all year round. But also blue lights that create hyperpigmentation spots over the long term.
Remember to protect your skin from these aggressive factors. The Esthederm products range offers you a whole range of products adapted to this effect.
Having a facial routine means following the evolution of your skin, learning to better understand it and above all, respecting it while offering it appropriate daily care.
It certainly requires a lot of rigour but it is also a moment of relaxation, where we are not in the projection but rather well anchored in the present moment...
