Taking care of your skin:the ultimate cocooning ritual

On a daily basis, we generally favor speed in our beauty routine. But what about those days when we could (finally) make time? Weekends, holidays or other moments of respite are perfect opportunities to pamper yourself!

So how do you take care of your skin while enjoying a wonderful moment of relaxation? Veld's offers you its well-being ritual in 5 steps:a selection of pampering treatments to be performed preferably in the evening, to wake up with skin that is more beautiful than ever.

1. Taking care of your skin starts with a steam bath

The steam bath (or facial sauna) is probably one of the most underrated beauty allies. And yet, nothing easier to take care of your skin :in addition to boosting microcirculation, it promotes the elimination of toxins in depth and considerably improves the receptivity of the epidermis to subsequent treatments. It works wonders on all skin types except those that are extremely sensitive or prone to rosacea.

  • Cleanse your face with cleansing oil
  • Fill a flared container with boiling water. You can add some herbs or essential oils to enhance the purifying action of your sauna.
  • Position your face about 20 centimeters from the surface of the water. If it burns you, step back a few more inches.
  • Place a large towel over your head to trap as much steam as possible.
  • Enjoy this wellness ritual for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Continue immediately with the following steps.

2. Exfoliation, essential for clear and soft skin

Now that your follicular pores and ostia are wide open, take the opportunity to dislodge all those impurities that clog them . And to do this, bet on a good exfoliation of the face! Practiced according to the rules of the art, it smoothes the skin texture, prevents the appearance of pimples and boosts the radiance of the complexion.

  • Get your scrub
  • Rub the mixture onto your face, avoiding the lips and eye area.
  • Insist on the T zone:forehead, nose, chin.
  • Rinse and pat dry gently.

3. The mask, to treat minor skin discomfort

The mask is the king of pampering treatments ! Multifunction, it adapts to the requirements of all skin types:acne, aging, dehydration, dryness... DIY enthusiasts can choose powder masks to mix with a little water:these are often masks based on detoxifying clay. To take care of your skin with a delicious cocooning ritual, however, we recommend ready-to-use creamy masks:we love their ultra creamy textures that are so pleasant to spread...

  • Put a dab of the Age2O moisturizing mask (for dry and dehydrated skin) or a purifying mask (for combination to oily skin)
  • Apply your face mask with a brush, avoiding the eye area. Don't forget to go down the neck.
  • Leave on for 15 minutes. Take the opportunity to relax on your sofa with a good book or a cup of tea!
  • Rinse with a wet muslin.

4. Self-massage, your well-being and anti-aging ritual

Taking care of yourself and your skin necessarily involves a good massage! As pleasant as it is extremely effective, the anti-ageing massage is perfect for fighting wrinkles, loss of suppleness and sagging of the face . And to top it off, you only need two things to do it like a pro:a massage base, and your hands. The must:if you want a moment of relaxation for two, ask your spouse to lend themselves to the game!

  • Apply a dab of Age Commando anti-wrinkle balm to your face.
  • Make slow and firm gestures, starting from the bottom of the face and gradually rising towards the forehead.
  • In case of wrinkles, perform a series of movements perpendicular to their direction of progression.
  • Continue massaging for at least 5 minutes.
  • Pay particular attention to the eye area, to decongest puffiness and brighten the look.
  • Your massage completed, finish with a touch of lip balm to plump up your lips and display perfectly nourished skin down to the smallest corners!

5. Feel good, to feel good!
