For many, the Corona-crisis is associated with fear, insecurity, and stress, which does leave its mark on the skin of the face: dark circles under the eyes, pimples, and redness can develop. That is why facial skin now needs mild but thorough cleansing and soothing care. A mask in the evening and a serum overnight provide additional moisture and make the face look fresher the next morning.
Increased hand hygiene and stress are a challenge to existing beauty routines and skincare. Besides, it also harms the skin. Those who continue to attach importance to well-cared and healthy skin must now reconsider their usual beauty routine.
The skin — our protective shield
The skin is our protective cover. It blocks dangerous environmental influences and stores moisture. The protective acid mantle keeps pathogens at bay and provides a habitat for the bacteria that protect us. The mixture of epidermal and sebaceous fats acts like the body’s cream. However, too frequent (hand) washing leads to the destruction of our protective fat film. To defuse the degreasing effect, we recommend the use of products with refatting agents.
7 effective tips for a well-cared skin
1 Deep and gentle cleansing
The fundamental step of every beauty routine is cleansing. To thoroughly remove sebum and impurities from the skin, we recommend using gentle cleansing milk in the morning and evening. Our Daily Cleansing Milk is rich in soothing plant ingredients and is ideal for soft cleansing of the skin. It removes dirt particularly mildly and cares for stressed skin. As a freshness kick, we recommend to alternate cold and warm water to get the skin going.
2 After-cleansing and toner
After cleansing, you should tone your face with our Daily Balancing Toner or Gentle Rose Toner. To care for sensitive and irritated skin even more carefully, we recommend applying the toner with the fingertips and gently tapping it in. The toner protects and respects the natural skin barrier, refines the pores, and makes the skin feel firmer.
3 Effective allrounder care
As a special highlight after toning the skin, we recommend our Soft Focus Pore Refining Cream. With a mattifying instant effect, this soft-focus cream provides optical skin smoothing, evens out irregularities, and transforms the skin into a velvety, smooth canvas. Pore-refining high-tech functional ingredients from willow herb regulate sebum production and biotechnological hyaluronic acid provides an extra portion of moisture.
Due to the unique properties of the cream, which immediately conjure up a more even skin appearance, make-up may not be necessary. It is especially advantageous in these times, as unattractive blurring and irritation can occur when wearing the face masks. Under the mask where increased sweating occurs, the microbeads of the soft focus functional ingredient also act as first aid to bind this moisture and mat the face.
4 Rich protection for stressed skin
To support the barrier function of the skin, we recommend the use of our Climate Defence Rich Cream. The ceramides contained in the cream help to build up the skin structure and give the skin special protection when wearing protective equipment (goggles, mask).
5 Shining moments
In these times, special attention should be paid to eye care – after all, our eyes are the focus of the other person’s attention, especially when wearing face masks. The Daily Vitalizing Eye Treatment applied in the evening and morning reduces fine lines and makes the eye area shine.
6 Freshness for the skin
To refresh the skin in between, we recommend the Neroli Flower Toner for pale and mature skin or the Gentle Rose Toner for dry and irritated skin.
7 Regenerating night care
For night care, we recommend applying the Intense Skin Calming Mask 1 to 2 times a week after cleansing and the Extra Sensitive Calming Serum daily or, in case of mature, dehydrated skin, the Hyaluronic Age Repair Booster Serum. It soothes stressed skin and intensively supplies it with essential nutrients. For particularly damaged skin, for example, caused by abrasion when wearing protective equipment, the Age Repair Miracle Drops provide regenerating and protective ingredients that additionally support the skin’s barrier function.
Probably our hands need the most attention now. They are thoroughly washed and disinfected many times a day. As a result, they now have special needs: Dryness and irritations can be alleviated by repeatedly applying our hand cream with integrated sun protection Daily Cellular Protection Hand Cream SPF 10. For cleaning the hands, we recommend the delicate and caring hand soap Gentle Caring Hand Wash. Our vegetable surfactants are particularly mild and do not degrease the skin as much.
Intensive care for the hands
For the intensive care of the hands, we recommend applying our Intense Repair Shea Butter in the evening. Shea butter makes a wonderful greasy film on the skin, similar to our own greases, which protects and repairs the skin. Let it work overnight. For a hand pack, put on the linen gloves. This gives the stressed skin time to regenerate. At the same time, your hands will feel firm and smooth in the morning.
An absolute must-have in times of Coronavirus is our Always On Hand Cleanser, an alcohol-based hand spray for on the go. This hand cleanser contains moisturizing, refreshing, and cleansing functional ingredients such as aloe vera, lemon, and thyme, which provide additional gentle care for the skin. The Rinse-Free Hand Cleanser can be sprayed and rubbed onto the hands several times a day as required. Use pure without water.
Alternatively, you can use our Natural Care+ Hand Cleansing Gel. It is also an alcohol-based hand cleansing gel with moisturizing and caring functional ingredients.
