One of the healthy habits for glowing skin is cleansing, as it removes dirt, oil, and makeup residue, which can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. Use a cleanser that is suitable for your skin type to avoid stripping your skin of its natural oils or further damage. Here at Essenza, we have a wide range of skincare brands with cleansers for all skin types. An example of a brand with cleansers for every skin type is a CLARINS luscious foaming cleanser.
Another way how to take care of your body skin naturally is by exfoliating both facial skin and body. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells and promote cell renewal, revealing brighter and smoother skin. Use a gentle exfoliator 2-3 times a week, depending on your skin type. Use the CLARINS TONIC BODY POLISHER and the CLINIQUE 7 DAYS SCRUB CREAM for all skin types.
Face toner is a secret skincare weapon. It comes in a water-based liquid form that may be infused with skin-soothing ingredients like eucalyptus, peppermint and, aloe. You can often find different formulas made especially for your skin type. A toner's job is meant to gently refresh your skin without stripping it of its natural moisture, also restores your skin's pH level, smooths skin by refining rough patches, and, improves skin tone. This means toner won't irritate sensitive skin or cause excessive dryness. Toner also prepares the skin to drink up your post-cleansing moisturizer and any other skin treatments that you may apply. A good Toner to try is the Fenty Skin Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum, it has all the benefits of a toner and a serum.
USE A SERUM
Serums are lightweight, fast-absorbing, and packed with active ingredients that target specific skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Apply them after cleansing and before moisturizing. Here at Essenza, we retail different skincare brand serums that target different concerns that you can tailor to your skincare routines. A fan favorite is the ESTEE LAUDER Advanced Night Repair
Moisturizing is one of the most important and basic steps for good skin care. And it's about more than just slathering on a lotion or cream. To extract the maximum benefits from the moisturizer you are using, you need to ensure that it addresses your skin's needs and is designed for your skin type Applying a moisturizer correctly boosts hydration in your skin, prevents flaking and dullness, and creates a protective layer of moisture for your skin and, helps seal in the active treatments from your serum. Moisturized skin is healthy and ages slower, keeping wrinkles and other skin issues at bay. A must-have moisturizer suitable for all skin types is the CLINIQUE NEW Moisture Surge™ 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator
