If you haven’t heard—manuka honey is one of the latest skin care ingredients making its way into the beauty scene. What is manuka honey, you ask? This skin care must-have is a nurturing form of honey, specially sourced from the nectar of the Manuka Tree, naturally found in New Zealand. Oh, and it’s exactly what’s missing from your skin care routine—especially if you’re starting to experience visible signs of aging like dry skin. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial for your manuka honey anti-aging skin care routine.
STEP 1: USE A CREAM CLEANSER
As with any skin care routine, the first thing you want to do is use a facial cleanser. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser, which is made for mature skin, has a formula containing replenishing oils that gently cleanses skin without over-drying. You’ll be left with smoother, softer, more supple skin. To use it, moisten your skin before massaging the cleanser onto your face, working it into a lather. Rinse thoroughly before patting your skin dry.
STEP 2: EXFOLIATE YOUR SKIN
Three times a week, use a face scrub to gently exfoliate your skin. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Resurface and Energize Kona Coffee Scrub will remove dirt, excess oils, and any impurities from your skin. The formula contains three pure sugars, finely ground Kona coffee, almond oil, and coconut oil. Within one week, you’ll be left with baby-soft, smooth, and comforted skin with reduced signs of fatigue. To apply, smooth a small amount of the scrub onto your face with dry fingers. Wet your fingers, then massage the scrub over your skin before rinsing with lukewarm water.
STEP 3: USE A DAILY MOISTURIZER
After cleansing and exfoliating your skin, you want to replenish hydration using a facial moisturizer. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Day Cream is a nourishing day cream formulated for mature, very dry skin. The creamy moisturizer contains nurturing oils, manuka honey, calcium, and antioxidants and provides long-lasting, non-greasy, non-sticky hydration. This moisturizer can be used on your face, neck, and upper chest.
If this is actually your night routine, you can swap the day cream for the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Night Balm. This night balm can be used on your face, neck, and chest, resulting in firmer, stronger, moisturized skin.
STEP 4: AND A MOISTURIZING BALM
Intense hydration is important in any anti-aging skin care routine and this one is no exception. Investing in a moisturizing balm can give your skin the extra hydration it requires. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm - Face/Neck/Chest/Hands relieves mature, very dry skin, leaving it with a more youthful, healthy glow. The balm has an indulgent, honey-inspired fragrance and can be used on your face, neck, chest, and hands.
STEP 5: USE A FACE SERUM
A face serum is another way to help hydrate mature, dry skin, while offering additional anti-aging benefits. Try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This serum contains 1.5% pure hyaluronic acid to leave you with plump, more youthful looking skin. Even better—the formula is fragrance free, paraben free, free of mineral oils, and free of synthetic dyes, making it totally suitable for sensitive skin.
STEP 6: APPLY AN EYE GEL
No anti-aging skin care routine is complete without a skin care product to target your eyes. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel is an eye treatment for mature, dry skin. The gel formula contains manuka honey, calcium, antioxidants, and nurturing oils to cushion mature, dry skin with moisture. The rollerball wand applicator makes this eye gel super easy and convenient to apply. The ultra-gentle treatment also massages away the look of puffiness, bags, and dark circles so you can be left with skin that feels refreshed and appears more youthful.
