Oil-based Cleanser or a Cleansing water. Mostly used in the evening, the first cleanser removes the impurities from your skin such as makeup and SPF.
When you use a micellar water, make sure you double cleanse – the micellar particles remain on your skin and sensibilise it.
Apply an oil-based cleanser with dry hands on dry face – once you start rincing it off it turns into a milky texture, so is easily washed-off.
Morning and evening, the second cleanser deep cleanses your face by removing water-based impurities from your skin such as sweat, dirt and pollution.
Use a Konjac sponge with your cleanser – the fibers of the sponge will massage your skin and promote blood circulation, as well as gently-gently exfoliate your skin to give it an extra glow.
AHAs, BHAs, and acidic forms of Vitamin C exfoliate your skin, gently dissolving and removing excess dead skin cells at the surface of the skin or within the pores and revealing a softer, brighter, and clearer complexion.
AHA exfoliates the surface of the skin for general luminosity, while BHA clears out pores. Vitamin C brightens skin while acting as an antioxidant to reverse sun and environmental damage.

The moisturizer forms a sort of a protective cap, which seals all the previous steps. While sealing moisture, it also pulls it from the inner to the outer layers of the skin, thus maintaining skins’ moisture barrier.
Very generally speaking, emulsions, lotions and gels are “lighter” forms of creams – they are usually water-based and best suited for oily, dehydrated, combination and troubled skin. Creams usually contain more oil and are more convenient for dry and mature skin.
Several times per week, treat your skin with an extra bonus treatement and maximize your beauty sleep!
