3 Daily Skincare Tips
At E. Burnham Cosmetics customers often ask us how to apply their products. Well, there is a secret trick to get absorption and to give your face the needed workout to maintain smooth, wrinkle free skin… but first here are some other helpful tips.
First thing in the Morning
Gentle cleansing with Retinol Cleansing Milk Lotion, I know you cleansed your face the night before, but give it one more cleansing to start the day. Then apply product in this order…
Step 1: Retinol Correcting Eye Créme
The skin around the eyes is thin and has few oil glands, so it dries out quickly, accentuating lines. Our Retinol Correcting Eye Créme can help both to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, but also lighten the dark areas under the eyes. Apply it first to allow time for it to penetrate the skin to ensure your eye make up (if worn) is not affected.
Step 2: Retinol Vitamin C Face Serum
Experts suggest a serum to help prevent environmental skin damage. Our Retinol Vitamin C Face Serum is for this purpose. Apply to your clean face as potent treatments should be closest to the bare skin for the best absorption and results. Ok ready for the secret – well maybe not just yet.
Step3: Retinol Ultra Skin Care Créme - the moisturizer of choice
Hydrate last to lock in moisture. It will soften skin but won’t make it feel slick as the day goes on. Always then apply a sunscreen if you are going to be in the sun for any extended period of time. We recommend at least a SPF 30.
OK – here’s the secret –
Notice how men’s faces often don’t show wrinkles as early as women – well that is because every day when they shave they are giving their facial tissue a “workout”. Watch a man shave – they go through many contortions to ensure their beard is removed, and they don’t knick their face. So, for us – no I don’t recommend shaving - but I do recommend a facial workout which can be done easily when you apply our products. Always upward strokes – and give it a good strong massage – say 20 or 30 upward strokes, and watch those fine lines and wrinkles disappear and your skin tone improve. You will also see a flush to the skin caused by the friction of the massage you are giving your face, which increases blood flow, removes impurities and will increase the absorption of the products. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
