Now that the cold has come, I change my routine a little and add more moisture and nutrition. This is what my morning and evening routine looks like right now and as long as the cold lasts!
I always start the day with a double wash (1. oil wash 2. water-based wash).
Step 1. Klairs gentle black Deep cleansing oil. To remove all oil-based dirt from the skin (from makeup, exhaust fumes in the air and from sunscreen). I massage in this delicacy (mild and soft texture) on dry skin and then add a little lukewarm water, continue massaging until I get a milky white texture. Then I rinse everything thoroughly with lukewarm water. It contains black beans that balance sebum production, black sesame oil that strengthens the skin barrier and oil from black currants that is super rich in vitamins and minerals. Is very gentle and works for all skin types!
Step 2. Klairs rich moist foaming cleanser: Cleanser that also moisturizes. From this I squeeze out 1-2 pumps with cleaning foam and massage for about 60 seconds before rinsing everything thoroughly with lukewarm water. What I love about this is that it not only cleans effectively but that it also contains hyaluronic acid which moisturizes (= you avoid that tight dry feeling after washing) and that it also contains ceramide 3 and olive oil which builds up and strengthens the skin's protective barrier. Works for all skin types and is hypoallergenic, so also works for sensitive skin.
Step 3. Klairs supple preparation facial toner. For a calming and moisturizing effect. From this I pour a few drops off in the palm of my hand, massage in all over the face (even under the eyes) and then pat everything gently over the cheeks in a slightly upward motion. A tip is to pat several layers of this from time to time to really boost the moisture level in the skin and get a plump effect. It moisturizes, removes dirt and sebum while restoring the pH balance after cleaning. Amino acids reduce irritation and moisturize deeply so it is very soothing as well and therefore also suitable for sensitive skin. The toner is so incredibly important (and often underestimated) because it prepares the skin for the next steps in your skin care and helps the skin absorb subsequent products such as serum and moisturizer better!
Step 4. At Wishtrend Polyphenol in Propolis 15% Ampoule. For reduced pores, luster and control of blemishes. I drip this over the skin directly with the pipette. 1 drop in the forehead and one on each cheek and then I gently massage it in with small, round upward circular motions. It contains, among other things, Propolis, which contains lots of antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory, lust-creating, balancing, healing and calming properties. The serum also accelerates cell renewal, soothes the skin and reduces pores. Another exciting ingredient is lizard leaf extract, which is used instead of pure water for its antibacterial, soothing properties, which makes it particularly suitable for acne-prone / oily skin. It also contains witch hazel which helps to soothe oily skin and it is completely free of sulphates, fragrances, dyes and silicones. Suitable for acne-prone skin, oily skin, dry skin and sensitive skin. Tip! Use with advantage with a vitamin c product, or another product with antioxidants for a boosted effect.
Step 5. Klairs Fundamental Watery Oil Drop. For hydration, nutrition and luster. Here, too, I drip with the pipette directly on the skin, 1 drop in the forehead and one on each cheek and then massage in with gentle upward circular movements. It contains, among other things, ceramides, camellia sinensis (Green tea), peptides and fermented ingredients which contain lots of antioxidants and rejuvenating properties that give the skin a natural glow immediately. It has a nice (not at all sticky) consistency that is absorbed quickly and efficiently but at the same time moisturizes the skin quickly and effectively (perfect now in winter!).
Step 6. By Wishtrend Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream. For radiance, elasticity and strengthened skin barrier. I massage this all over the face by using a spatula to take a piece as big as a pea and then massaging it all over the face (also works well under the eyes). This moisturizer contains, among other things, vitamin C (not ascorbic acid so it is not exfoliating) and vitamin E and can be used both as a day and night cream. Ingredients such as sea buckthorn extract, sunflower seeds and macadamia nut oil help the skin absorb Vitamin C more efficiently, therefore it is excellent to use after a vitamin C serum. The cream also strengthens the skin barrier and prevents various signs of aging on the skin and loss of elasticity.
Step 7. For sun protection, base make-up (even skin with radiance) and protection against free radicals. I use sunscreen all year round (the sun and other free radicals in our environment accelerate the aging of the skin even in winter) and therefore I love this combination that protects against all this!
I mix Klairs illuminating blemish Cream with Dr. Ceuracle Cica Regen Anti-Dust Sun Gel by placing a small click of each on the back of the hand and then mixing with your finger. Then I apply with my fingers, but it is of course also possible to use a make-up tool for this step.
Klairs illuminating blemish Cream contains moisture, anti aging, sun protection (spf 40) and foundation in one! It sinks easily into the skin, covers pores and red areas in a natural way and contains hyaluronic acid which moisturizes the skin throughout the day. Works for all skin types, including acne prone and sensitive skin.
Dr. Cica Regen Anti Dust Sun Gel is the perfect morning all-in-one product for moisture, nutrition and sun protection in one product! It contains SPF 50, moisturizes and protects the skin against free radicals (eg exhaust fumes in the air, sun, smoke). It contains, among other things, ingredients such as Actinidia Argute (Kiwi) extract (anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties) that protect the skin from external contaminants. It also contains 1.51% pure Centella Complex which immediately soothes and repairs damaged and sensitive skin.
The light texture sinks quickly into the skin, without any white stickiness as with many other sunscreens. The best part is that it moisturizes so heavenly well throughout the day.
Step 8. Under the eyes where my skin is a little darker and at the nostrils where I easily get red and a little dry during the cold months, I apply klairs creamy natural fit concealer.
Step 9. During the day I have with me Klairs Fundamental Ampoule Mist which I use to replenish moisture during the day (if needed). Sprays at a short distance over make-up and a big plus is that it also gives a nice natural glow. Extra tips! If you want a super moisturized and lustrous look (Glass skin), spray this between each step in your skin care routine and then continue with your make-up. Finish by spraying this all over your face. Voila, a smooth, moisturized skin with a natural glow!
In the evening, my routine looks a little different as I add some extra caring steps and start the routine with a triple wash!
With a cotton pad, I wipe off all makeup with Make P: rem Radiance Me Cleansing Water Oil. This is a multifunctional cleanser with oil-and-cleansing water in one and the same product, which offers a smart way to quickly cleanse the skin from makeup and at the same time give the skin radiance. Contains, among other things, the ingredient Vitaberry 5 Complex which is full of antioxidants and vitamins and which gives a clear skin tone and radiance to the skin. White Berry contains cloudberries, blueberries, sea buckthorn berries, raspberries and blackberries. The ingredients also include birch sap and sunflower seed oil which soothes and moisturizes effectively! I shake this to mix oil and water and then I pour a few drops on a cotton pad. Over the eyes, I let the cotton pad lie for a few seconds before wiping off all the makeup.
Then I continue with Klairs gentle black Deep cleansing oil. I massage it in on dry skin and then add a little lukewarm water, continue massaging until I get a milky white consistency. Then I rinse everything thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Then I continue the cleaning routine with an enzyme powder, Dr ceuracle (Leegeehaam) Pro Balance Night Enzyme Wash by mixing the powder with water and working up a foam. This is adapted precisely for use in the evening thanks to the fact that the coarse-grained powder contains carbon which effectively removes all impurities that have accumulated in the skin during the day and exfoliates the skin and increases the turnover of skin cells.
1-3 times a week I use this scrub (preferably in the bath and leave it for a while before I massage and rinse it off). Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish
1-2 times a week I apply clay mask from Dr. Ceuracle Jeju Matcha Clay Pack, (preferably immediately after the step above with klair's gentle black sugar facial polish) leave it on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing it off thoroughly. A tip is to also use this in the bath so that it then retains moisture and does not become as dry against the skin.
About 3 days a week I use By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water on a cotton pad by swiping it over the face from the inside out. It contains mandelic acid which is milder but just as effective as other AHA acids (glycolic acid or citric acid) and removes dead skin cells, gives soft skin, increases the rate of cell buildup in the skin, reduces pigmentation, gives even skin tone, treats UV damage and soothes acne and infections in the skin. It simply prepares the skin for the rest of the routine so that all products can be absorbed optimally!
I then continue with Klairs supple preparation facial tones. I pour a few drops of this into the palm of my hand, massage in over the entire face (even under the eyes) and then pat everything gently over the cheeks in a slightly upward pat.
I then continue with Dr. CeuracleTea Tree Purifine 95 Essence which contains 95% tea tree extract as well as witch hazel and willow bark which soothes and moisturizes the skin which reduces and prevents blemishes.
In this step of the routine, it's time for sheetmask. One that I love to wear this winter is By Wishtrend Hours Long Moisturizing Gauze Sheet Mask which thanks to its thicker sheet can stay on the skin for up to 40 minutes.
2-3 days a week (days when I do not use step 5, mandelic acid) I use By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 21.5 Advanced Serum. This serum contains a high concentration of 21.5% pure vitamin C (ascorbic acid) which is a antioxidant that helps the skin to even out the skin tone, pale brown spots, prevent the appearance of pigmentation, increase firmness and reduce fine lines and give radiance!
Then I continue with By Wishtrend Polyphenol in Propolis 15% Ampoule (see more details about this during the morning routine during step 4).
The days when I feel that I need extra moisture, I also add to this moisturizing serum Dr. Ceuracle Hyal Reyouth Ampoule. This product contains 6 different types of hyaluronic acid that work very moisturizing, strengthen the skin's moisture barrier, soothe and strengthen the skin's elasticity.
Finishes everything with Klairs Freshly Juiced E-Vitamin Mask. For luster and elasticity! This treat can be used both as a moisturizing mask, night mask or as a day cream, but I prefer to use it as a night cream / night mask. To use it as a night cream, apply an extra thick layer before going to bed. It contains, among other things, Vitamin E which prevents small particles from entering the skin from the outside, which can cause wrinkles. Vitamin E also has emollient properties while reducing inflammation and protecting the skin from sun damage. The cream also contains niacinamide which is a good ingredient for those who have oily, acne-prone skin and work to balance sebum production while stabilizing vitamin C (= good to use in the same routine as vitamin c products). Another incredibly fine ingredient is adenosine, a substance found in every cell of our body that strengthens our skin by promoting collagen production. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it effective in wound healing and skin rebuilding. If you want to work with anti-aging, get a more even skin tone and radiance, then this product is great!
Hope you get a lot of inspiration and get a lot of fun out of my tips!
