Morning and evening beauty routine: our tips

Facial cleanser, cream and serum, scrub or mask from time to time... Having a beauty routine means adopting good habits to keep your skin beautiful and well moisturized, while providing your face with care adapted to its specific needs (imperfections, lack of moisture, first signs of aging...) and at the right time of day, because your skin doesn't have the same needs in the morning as it does in the evening before bedtime. Here are a few tips to set up an optimal skincare routine for morning and evening!

Why distinguish between morning and evening beauty routines?

A beauty routine consists of several steps, whatever the time of day. Cleansing, facial moisturizing (with a serum and/or cream adapted to your skin type), eye contouring, exfoliation and a complementary mask are a good basis for taking care of your skin. After all, your morning moisturizer will do just as well in the evening, won't it? Well, not quite.

Your skin's needs in the morning

In the morning, your face needs a cream that will not only moisturize it, but also protect it from external aggressors: cold, wind and pollution are all threats to your epidermis. If you're planning to spend time outdoors, you'll also need sun protection, or a moisturizing cream with SPF.

Your skin's characteristics at night

In the evening, while you sleep, your skin regenerates. It's during the night that cellular renewal mechanisms are triggered. Your body produces melatonin, which stimulates the skin's antioxidant defenses. The skin repairs itself, microcirculation is activated and toxins are eliminated. To support this nocturnal regeneration, we recommend the use of night creams that promote skin renewal and help combat skin aging.

Do you need advice and skincare product suggestions to create THE beauty routine that's right for you? Well, we've put together some beauty routines that will give you a gorgeous complexion, whatever your skin type!

Cleansing your face, an essential step

Moisturizing the face, THE key gesture

  • Combination, oily and blemish-prone skin will love NORTHERN LIGHT Smoothing Fluid, which provides long-lasting matification. A richer cream version is available, perfect fornormal to dryskin prone to imperfections or dull complexions.

  • Dehydrated skin will regain comfort and suppleness with our face care products Ice Sourcewith Iceberg Water, Hyaluronic Acid and Polar Algae.

Skin tip: to counter the harmful effects of UV rays (premature ageing of the face, dry skin, brown spots...) remember to slip a sun care product - such as Sun Stick SPF50+ - into your bag and apply it before each exposure!

A beauty routine for the evening?

In the evening, even if you go to bed late, don't skip the make-up removal step. Absolutely essential, even if you haven't worn make-up, it removes sebum, dust and pollution accumulated during the day, and prepares the skin for rest. You can then apply your serum and night cream.
