Take Care Of Your Face The Right Way

By wochit 20 October 2016

Here's the thing about a daily skincare routine of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing: Since you've been doing it for so long, it's natural to slip into autopilot and assume that the simple moves you've been doing for a decade or more can't be improved upon. But actually, a few simple tweaks of technique can improve your complexion considerably—and don't add any more time. Simone Ciafardini is vice president of global education development for Clinique. She told Elle Magazine, "There's definitely an efficacious way to go through your routine"--and it all starts with taking off your makeup properly. First, use an oil-based makeup remover. Next, put exfoliating lotion on a cotton ball. Sweep it down the T-zone, across the forehead, down the nose, and once over each cheek. It's the sweeping action of the cotton combined with the active ingredient that helps loosen those stubborn dead cells. Be careful not to over-expose: If you're using other exfoliators like retinol or scrubs, alternate them with the lotion to avoid irritation. Finally, moisturize that lovely clean and smooth skin you now have. Take a few pumps of moisturizer or a dollop of cream and apply in an upward motion all over the face. Don't forget your cheeks, which is an often-ignored spot. Get extra credit points for eye cream at night and sunscreen in the morning.
