Make-up routine

Makeup is unfortunately not enough to make the face shine. It all starts with good skin care at the right times. A 3-step pre-makeup routine will guarantee you a flawless complexion and skin that is more likely to receive make-up.

The 3 steps of the routine:

1) Cleanse your skin

2) Hydrate your skin

3) Apply a treatment

We explain how to do it!

1) Cleanse your skin

Regarding your skin routine, the first step is to cleanse your skin in the morning and evening. This is an essential step for the well-being and purity of your skin. Indeed, the skin is often likely to contain bacteria; with the effect of daily pollution, these can clog pores during the day.

How to do it ?

The best solution to deeply cleanse your face is to perform a double cleansing ( see our blog on layering ), and a homemade exfoliation once or twice a week.

The scrub recommended by the house:

Here is a scrub idea that we recommend with your eyes closed!

In order to prepare your homemade scrub you will need:

  • 30g sweet sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • 10 drops of nigella oil

Mix everything and apply it on your face, gently massaging your skin with circular movements. Rinse thoroughly!

Regular and thorough cleanings will leave you with healthy skin, and will allow preparation for skin care as well as makeup.

2) Hydrate your skin

The second step in the make-up routine is hydration after cleansing. It is necessary for all skin types. A rich texture is especially recommended for dry skin type.

Why hydrate?

To maintain beautiful plump, soft and supple skin, hydration is essential. Your moisturizing cream or serum also helps maintain a hydrolipidic film - the skin barrier that protects the epidermis from all these external elements and limits attacks. Indeed, makeup settles in fine lines and wrinkles and can attack the skin. Hydration serves as a protective barrier between your skin and your makeup. If you choose a moisturizer enriched with SPF, the result is better. Check out our blog on the right reflexes to protect your skin during heat waves .

Our hydration recommendation:

In order to moisturize your face you can put two drops of black cumin oil on your face. A deeply hydrated skin will give a natural and perfect effect to your make-up.

3) Apply a treatment

The last stage of the routine is assigned to facial care.

For optimal skin care, it is important to use serums and creams appropriate for your skin type. Using the right dose is also very important in order to get a better result without any residue on the skin. It is recommended to use a specific cream for the day and for the night. The skin needs different active ingredients depending on the time of day. A good day cream moisturizes, protects from the sun and forms a base for make-up.

At night, on the other hand, the skin regenerates: skin metabolism increases, the skin is nourished and cell damage is repaired. A good night cream nourishes and promotes skin regeneration.

You can add a few drops of nigella to your night cream to nourish and prevent skin aging. Thanks to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of nigella, your cream will be enriched.
