Step 1: Deep cleansing
The most important thing when it comes to clear skin and a radiant complexion is removing your make-up. Without exception. That's because tiny make-up particles and pollutants from the air settle in your pores and block them. This is the start of blemished skin. Cleanse your face thoroughly every day, ideally in the morning and in the evening. Whether you use wash gel, lotion, milk or foam depends on your personal preference and your skin type. As a general rule, wash gel is great for oily or combination skin and sensitive or dry skin is best treated with cleansing lotion. Micellar skin-cleansing products are very effective and simple to use. Micellar products are both hydrophilic and lipophilic, meaning they remove both water-soluble and oil-soluble make-up residue or pollutants. Micellar cleansers cling to pollutants like a magnet. This way, you can gently and thoroughly remove make-up residue and the like using a single skin-cleansing product and without scrubbing. These days there are even specific micellar water formulas for any skin type. Cleansing your face with a brush is the most effective. Facial cleansing brushes cleanse thoroughly, remove dead layers of skin and stimulate circulation. They make your skin look more even and give you a radiant complexion.
Tip: To preserve your skin's natural balance of oil and moisture, avoid cleansing your face more than twice a day.

Step 2: Weekly exfoliation
Remove dead skin once or twice a week (but no more than that!) using an exfoliator. Removing old skin cells will encourage new skin cells to grow. To exfoliate, apply a fine-grained paste to your skin, gently massage and then rinse thoroughly.
Tip: It's so easy to make your own exfoliator. All you need is some coarse-grained sugar and honey or olive oil. For sensitive skin, we recommend so-called enzyme exfoliators that contain natural fruit enzymes. Since they contain no abrasive particles, enzyme exfoliators are particularly gentle on your skin.

Professional exfoliating products just like those used in cosmetic studios are now available for home use. We're talking about microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a mechanical peeling method focused on improving your skin's structure. With "a little skin abrasion," as the name of the method suggests, the upper cell layers of the skin are mechanically and gently removed by fine crystals.

Step 3: Toning
After cleaning your skin, it's time to apply your facial toner or tonic. Facial tonics remove water-soluble components such as sweat, dirt and residue from cleansers. Applying tonic restores your skin's natural acidic protective layer. Tonic minimizes your pores and optimally prepares your skin for the next steps of the cleansing process. For oily, blemished skin, use a tonic that contains alcohol to remove oil and disinfect the skin. Sensitive skin, on the other hand, should be cleansed with alcohol-free tonics. The micellar waters mentioned above cleanse and tone your skin in one step. These are a perfect choice if you're in a hurry.

Tip: Steam baths are a great way to cleanse the skin, especially in case of blemishes. Steaming opens the pores so your skin can absorb your care products.

Step 4: Nourish your skin
This step is all about "putting on a mask and relaxing." A nourishing mask does wonders for dry skin, especially in the cold season when temperatures are low and the air indoors is heated and dry. Depending on your skin type, you can choose between rich, nurturing masks or more calming products. You can also make your own facial mask. Just raid your kitchen! Cream cheese, cucumber, banana, honey, coffee powder, olive oil or coconut oil – all are fair game! If you're looking for inspiration, you can find it here.

Step 5: Moisturize
Now that you're thoroughly cleansed and toned, your face is ready for moisturizing skin-care products. Day or night creams are designed to provide moisture without blocking your pores. Choose your facial cream based on the specific needs of your skin type.
Tip: Sleep deprivation, indoor heating, wind, snow and rain – especially in winter, your skin has to deal with a lot. In this cold time of year, your skin may not be getting enough nutrients from your regular care products. In that case, switch to a product richer in nutrients. When temperatures plunge, your skin not only needs moisture but also plenty of oil.
