MÁDARA SKIN CAFÉ beauty therapists share 4 simple and proven step-by-step techniques for effective and targeted at-home facials you'll be eager to try tonight.
1 ENERGY BOOST
to restore your skin's vitality, target dullness, and the first fine lines
STEP 1: Apply the BRIGHTENING AHA PEEL MASK all over the face, except the eye and lip area. Leave for 5 minutes. Rinse well and apply a toner.
STEP 2: Mix together SOS INSTANT MOISTURE+RADIANCE HYDRA MASK and ULTRA PURIFYING DETOX MASK (1:1) to boost your skin's radiance with double power. The detoxifying and clarifying mud absorbs pollutants and impurities while the super moisturising and smoothing ingredients of the SOS mask deeply hydrate and add a healthy glow. Apply plain SOS mask to your lips and in the eye area. Leave for 10 minutes. Rinse well.
2 SUPER DETOX
to cleanse, comfort and balance oily and acne-prone skin; to minimise enlarged pores and prevent breakouts
STEP 1: Start with the AHA PEEL mask. Apply it to your face thoroughly, avoiding the eye and lip area. Leave for 5-10 minutes, rinse well and apply a toner.
STEP 2: Gently polish your skin with the EXFOLIATING OIL-TO-MILK SCRUB to remove dead skin cells. The active ingredients of AHA PEEL mask soften the bonds between the dead skin cells, while SCRUB ensures even deeper exfoliation, so necessary for oily and clogged skin.
STEP 3: Apply DETOX mask to your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, and SOS mask to your lips and around the eyes. Leave for 5-10 minutes. Rinse well, pat dry. The detoxifying and clarifying mud absorbs pollutants and impurities, helps to reduce inflammation and prevents breakouts. One more tip: DETOX mask can also be used as an overnight spot treatment just put it directly on the breakout.
3 THE BALANCING ACT
well-considered care for combination skin with dry cheeks and oily t-zone
STEP 1: Polish away the dead skin cells with the EXFOLIATING OIL-TO-MILK SCRUB. Rinse well, pat dry. The scrub will uncover a smoother and healthier skin instantly.
STEP 2: Let's do some multitasking. Pamper the drier areas of your face (cheeks, lips, and skin around the eyes) with the super hydrating SOS mask while balancing the t-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) with the clarifying and pore-refining DETOX mask. Leave both masks for 10 minutes, rinse off.
4 NIGHT OUT
instant treatment before a party or date; to boost your glow and remove all signs of fatigue
STEP 1: Polish away the dead skin cells with the EXFOLIATING OIL-TO-MILK SCRUB. Rinse well, pat dry. NB! Never use PEEL mask right before going out, as peeling fruit acids may cause temporary redness.
STEP 2: Pamper your skin with the moisturising and radiance-boosting SOS mask. Leave for 10 minutes, gently wipe off with a toner.
STEP 3: Finish the treatment with your preferred MÁDARA moisturiser or SUPERSEED RADIANT ENERGY facial oil. Illuminate the complexion and even out the skin tone with a SUNFLOWER or MOONFLOWER tinting moisturiser.
