From morning facial massages to double cleansing essentials.
My dear friend and beauty expert Clémence von Mueffling once told me to treat my skin the same way I’d treat a silk shirt. Would you vigorously scrub down a silk blouse with harsh, drying chemicals? Probably not.
That piece of wisdom (plus countless other beauty lessons I learned in Provence) totally flipped my skincare routine upside-down. The change was very good.
Because skincare is a hot topic around here (We just launched our first skincare collection!), I decided to breakdown my entire morning and evening routine, and share a few of my favorite tips.
In the Morning...
In the mornings, I’m getting the kids ready for school and also organizing my day, so I have to be quick!
I wash my face, usually with micellar water and 100% muslin cloth pads. They don’t leave any pieces of fluff on the eyes or lashes.
Then, I take the Biologique Recherche P50 with a muslin pad and pat it all over my face and lips to gently exfoliate, and follow up with lip balm.
After that, I immediately put on our new nourishing face and décolleté oil, Elixir II.
I usually give myself a quick facial massage to get the circulation going.
Then, I put on an under-eye cream and tap it around the top of my eyes, too. If I’m heading outside for the day, I finish off with some sunscreen.
In the Evening...
At night, I always begin by taking off any mascara that I can with just my hands and warm water. Then, I always double cleanse.
I take another muslin pad with micellar water and take the rest of the makeup off my eyes and face. Next, I cleanse with the Biologique Recherche Cleansing Milk and wash it off with cold water. Tip: It helps with circulation and skin rejuvenation.
If I need a little skin detox, I’ll apply our purifying clay mask, Beauté d’Argile. It offers a subtle, soft exfoliation and doesn’t dry out the skin like many clay masks.
Then, I usually break out the Biologique Recherche P50 again, finish off with a moisturizer and lip balm, and then head to bed!
