Beauty Essentials

Small beauty tips and secrets to make you beautiful, every minute of the day, every day!

Cleansing

Cleansing your face thoroughly is the most important stage in skin care. That’s why you should never forget to cleanse your face morning and evening. And always remember: Cleansing your face well in the evening is of utmost importance!

Always use a special product to remove make-up from the delicate eye area.

Never forget to use a toning lotion after having cleansed your face with cleansing milk or soap, as this helps tone the skin and balances its PH.

You can remove waterproof or long-wearing products from your eyes and lips quickly and easily, using a special product formulated to remove waterproof make-up.

Moisturizing

The skin around the eyes is ultra thin and fragile and requires the use of a special eye cream, formulated specifically for the eye contour area.

If you have dry skin, choose a richly-textured moisturizer that will give your skin elasticity and protect it against the appearance of premature expression lines.

If your skin has already shown the first signs of aging, you should definitely use a night cream, rich in hydrating and anti-aging ingredients, every night.

If the skin on your face shows the first signs of losing elasticity or sagging, you can combat them with the use of Firming Care in the Specifics line, a special firming cream formulated with retinol.

It you are troubled by the fine expression lines on your face, use Antiwrinkle Care, a cream rich in anti-wrinkle ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and natural polyphenol.

Most women, when going through their daily face care routine, neglect certain “tell-tale” parts of their face that reveal their age. One of these parts is the area next to the ear lobes. So, don’t forget to include this area when applying moisturizer, as part of your daily face care regime.

Applying eye cream correctly is of utmost importance for optimal results in skin care. Every time you apply eye cream, spend an extra minute to apply a small amount of eye cream to the "crow's foot" area of the eyes. Then, always using the ring finger, gently smooth the cream in circling motions, starting from the outer corner of the eye and moving inwards, over the brow bone, until fully absorbed.

You don't need to use eye cream in the lid area, as the temperature created by the movements of your eyes will help the product to spread evenly, wherever necessary. Also, using eye cream on the area of the lids could cause irritation to the eyes.

Special Care

Use an exfoliating cream once a week to remove dead skin cells and give your complexion a radiant, healthy glow.

Nourish your skin and give it extra hydration and care, applying a special hydration mask, as often as needed.

For combination skin, apply a clay mask to the parts of the face that are oilier and use a hydration mask for the rest of the face.

If you have oily, acne-prone skin, use the special products in the Clear Skin line by Specifics.

If, during the difficult days of the month, you break out in spots or pimples that stay on your face for days on end, use the special product Spot Stick from the Specifics Clear Skin line of products.

For fair-toned, sensitive skin, or skin with blemishes, always use a sun protection cream, both summer and winter.

And for that special night out, just 10 minutes before leaving the house, apply a clay mask to your face, to give your complexion a youthful, radiant glow.

For the younger ages that show the first signs of puberty (black spots, pimples, oily skin), use the Specifics Clear Skin line products (Gel, Lotion, Stick, Crème). Their specially designed formula includes tea-tree oil, a special ingredient with anti-bacterial and anti-septic properties.

Due to lack of available time, we often neglect to use special products, such as products for peeling, or face masks.

You can easily combine the time you take showering and washing your hair to give your face the special care and treatment it deserves.

You can, for example, apply a special product for peeling on your face, while waiting to remove the mask or conditioner from your hair. You can then remove both mask/conditioner from your hair and the peeling product from your face, at the same time. Or, you can apply a face mask of your choice, shower and then again, wash away and remove both face mask and shower gel at the same time. You will save precious time and you’ll be simply amazed at the results!
