Walking down the skin care aisle may lead you to believe that in order to achieve the appearance of a gorgeous, glowing complexion, you have to stock up on a ton of skin care products. While high maintenance skin care routines certainly exist—and work—a simple three-step skin care routine can be just as beneficial. At the end of the day, three of the most useful skin care products you can use are a facial cleanser, face scrub, and moisturizer. So, if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed about how to approach your skin care routine, take a deep breath and keep reading for a simple yet effective three-step skin care regimen. You’re welcome in advance!
STEP 1: cleanse
One of the most important parts of caring for your skin is ensuring that it’s clean. Throughout the day, dead skin cells, dirt, oils, and impurities can build up on the surface of your skin, and if you don’t wash your face, this can lead to clogged pores—which can lead to breakouts. Choose from one of three facial cleansers below, all of which are formulated to transform from clay to mousse.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser: This facial cleanser is suitable for all skin types and its formula is enhanced with charcoal. It helps purifiy the surface of your skin of dirt, oil, and pollution, and use after use, you’ll notice that dull skin appears brighter.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser: This facial cleanser formula is enhanced with eucalyptus and suitable for all skin types. Have oily skin? This one could be for you! This facial cleanser helps remove excess sebum (a.k.a. oil) from the surface of skin for a refreshed look and feel.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser: This facial cleanser is suitable for oily and combination skin, and its formula is enhanced with red algae. It goes beyond daily cleansing to exfoliate.
STEP 2: exfoliate
If your complexion is looking a little lackluster these days, you could be in need of some exfoliation. Exfoliating is the process of sloughing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Choose from one of the three face scrubs below, and add your chosen face scrub to your skin care routine three times a week post-cleansing.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub: This face scrub leaves skin feeling softer and smoother and looking more refined. Immediately, skin feels smooth and comforted, while skin feels nourished with continued use over time.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub: This face scrub effectively removes dirt, oil, and impurities from the surface of skin and polishes away dead skin. With continued use over time, pores look tighter, unclogged, and less visible.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub: This face scrub gives skin a glowing appearance immediately and leaves skin feeling baby-soft, smooth, and comforted with continued use over time.
STEP 3: moisturize
After cleansing and exfoliating, the best thing you can do for your complexion is to slather on moisturizer while your skin is still damp, as this can help lock in that moisture. To keep your complexion hydrated, smooth on a moisturizer formulated with hyaluronic acid, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal to Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal to Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin.
Interested in using an anti-aging moisturizer? Consider adding the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Cicacream Face Moisturizer Pro-Retinol & Centella Asiatica to your skin care routine. This lightweight, protective cream helps skin feel softer and smoother immediately, while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use over time. Smooth the cica cream onto your face morning and night for best results over time.
