All of us want to have the beautiful and healthy skin but often we forget that to achieve this goal we need to put a certain effort. Also, many of us lead a busy lifestyle with a little time for ourselves, so visiting a professional beauty salon might not be regular.
Thus, we need to determine for ourselves a clear and simple home skincare routine to stay healthy and glowing. And, in fact, it should be a routine, day by day, as skincare doesn’t work as a surgery:) Some customers of mine, when trying a new product, apply it on the one hand and expect to see the immediate result comparing the appearances of their two hands. No, it doesn’t work like that:) You need a time; depending on your skin condition and result you want to archive, it might be 1-4 weeks.
I tried to be as laconic as possible and marked out just 4 steps:
1. Cleansing. To clean your skin choose the soft and not irritating products such as Cleansing Oil (example: https://www.lukshacosmetics.com/collections/cleansers/products/cleansing-oil-with-licorice-extract-and-vitamin-e) or Cleansing Cream.

After washing your face with a cleansing product, use a toner on a cotton pad (example: https://www.lukshacosmetics.com/collections/cleansers/products/toner-with-organic-rose-water-organic-cranberry-extract-and-organic-aloe-leaf-juice). The toner finishes the cleansing procedure, gently removes the dead cells of the epidermis, calms the skin, normalizes the pH of the skin, and prepares it for the following care.
2. Serum. Facial serums are intensive skincare products which you can apply to your skin after cleansing but before the moisturizing cream. They are made up of small molecules that can penetrate deep into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients to the basal layer of epidermis. This makes serums a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns. Depending on the serum, apply it ones or twice time a day (usually twice).

3. Cream. Apply it after your serum. Depending on your skin type, it might be a light moisturizer or more rich nourishing cream. Often, the same product might be applied day and night; however, if the product contains some specific ingredients such as retinol or fruit acids, it mostly used for night. In addition, the day creams are usually lightweight moisturizers, while the nighttime creams are more rich regenerating/nourishing products.
If you like facial oils, use them instead of the creams (apply a tiny amount on your skin after your serum). You don`t need a cream after that.

4. If you have puffiness, dark circles, or/and fine lines around your eyes, you might need a special product for this area. Twice a day, apply a tiny amount of the eye cream on the area around your eyes with a little putting motion, don’t rub.
For the best result, ones or twice a week use a gentle peeling (it opens the pores, removes dead skin cells, and stimulates regeneration) followed by a moisturizing mask, which calms the skin, speeds up healing, and improves the complexion.
And, last but not least, don’t forget about your body! Choose a light moisturizer with calming agents such as Algae extract, Vitamins, or Aloe Vera and use it every day after the shower. At the summer time we especially need body skincare as our skin is under environmental exposure most of the day.
