    5 raisons Pourquoi il est important d'adopter une routine beauté ? - Dado Cosmetics

    Having a skincare routine is your guarantee to have beautiful skin over the long term. The adage that 'we are what we do every day' applies perfectly well. Adopt a beauty routine adapted to your skin type and it will definitely pay off. Here are 5 reasons why you should use a skincare routine.

    1. Having great skin takes time

    And yes, it does not happen overnight. The skin needs time to adapt to care (at least 28 days) and to have a skincare routine with appropriate natural care that meets these needs so that it lights up.

    It is essential to choose a skincare routine corresponding to your skin type and to use it every day. The 2 keys to success are perseverance and patience. This is how you will achieve beautifully even skin and a long-lasting radiant complexion.

    1. We are all different

    Some people have beautiful skin without effort and especially without a skincare routine. They are rare and it's not the reality for most of us.

    Each skin type will have specific needs. For example, oily skin is shiny with grease and this promotes the appearance of pimples. Or even dry skin that experiences real discomfort that is accentuated in winter.

    This is why you need to have a personalized beauty routine. It will meet the specific needs of your skin. Worth it!

    1. We have dead skin cells every day

    Have you ever had a radiant complexion one day and the next day your skin is dull and tired? It is because of the millions of dead cells that rise to the epidermis and settle on the face. This is another reason to adopt a skincare routine - in order to eliminate them and reveal the radiance of your complexion on a daily basis. Your skin is at the top of its beauty and it's good for morale.

    1. Prevention is better than cure

    Taking care of your skin with a good skincare routine saves you money in the long run. Skin problems like hyperpigmentation , deep wrinkles, acne, pimples, and uneven skin tone can be avoided with a good beauty routine. It is therefore important to adopt it before the problems appear. So you wouldn't have to pay a fortune to the dermatologist! Not to mention the emotional aspect. Indeed, when our skin is not at its best, it often leads to a drop in our self-esteem.

    1. Improves our self-confidence

    The face is the first thing you see of a person. Having beautiful skin gives us confidence no matter what we say. Be persistent in using your beauty routine to see visible results all year round. 

    What should your beauty routine contain?

    Now that you understand the importance of adopting a daily skincare routine, you need to know which products to apply. It must be simple, fast, and effective.

    1. The double cleansing

    This is the base and you should never skip it even if you are not wearing makeup.

    It involves removing impurities and makeup with a dedicated treatment. So forget the shower gels that are not suitable for the face.

    Most cleansers contain alcohol and irritating agents that attack the skin. The natural barrier of the skin is altered and its left suffering without protection against bacteria.

    This is why it is essential to practice double cleansing which involves removing impurities and make-up with a cleansing oil such as our cleansing oils with precious oils from Africa corresponding to your skin type.

    Follow up with a bar of natural soap to complete the cleaning like our surgras soaps which is cold saponified.

    2. Toning Lotion

    It helps to rebalance the PH and bring a glow to the skin. It is a real toning treatment and allows better penetration of a serum.

    Choose a toner like La Lotion Tonique that's pure, organic, and most importantly, alcohol-free. It restores the pH of the skin after using surgras soap. There is one depending on your skin type to meet these specific needs.

    1. Face Serum

    Choosing a serum for the skin is a must because it is concentrated in active ingredients. Its formula allows rapid and deep penetration to treat the skin's needs without a greasy effect.

    Moisturizing your skin is essential and possible with vegetable oils. Moreover, this is the most natural thing because we find these plants in nature.

    When choosing your serum, look for one whose composition is clean. The effectiveness is not in the number of ingredients but in their quality. Make sure to choose the one that matches your skin type for visible results.

    For oily skin, choose a light serum with mattifying agents while for dry skin, prefer a repairing treatment that deeply nourishes your skin. It regains its comfort.

    1. Always apply sunscreen

    It will protect you from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays which are the number 1 reason for wrinkles, dullness, and more.

    How to choose your sunscreen? 

    1. Exfoliate the skin regularly.

    Scrubbing or exfoliating is the secret treatment if you want to boost the effects of your beauty routine. It can be used 1-2 times a week to further remove dead skin cells and improve skin texture.

    There are 2 types of scrubs: mechanical and enzymatic.

    The mechanics contain more or less abrasive grains that remove dead cells from the surface of the skin while the enzymatic contains fruits that nibble them.

    Grain mechanics can be irritating to especially sensitive skin. That's why dermatologists recommend those that gently exfoliate without ever irritating the skin like the Mahona 2-in-1 Scrub and Mask.

    With its thick paste, it contains no abrasive grain and reveals a refined skin texture from the first use.

    Perseverance and patience are the keys to beautiful skin. Visible results do not appear overnight, but by adopting a simple, quick, and effective beauty routine, you will achieve a real difference in the long term.

    Are you ready to adopt a simple, quick, and effective beauty routine according to your skin type?

Je veux un gommage pour me débarrasser des boutons et des tâches. Ou bien une lotion. En gros une routine pour le visage au risque de me faire répéter. Je suis teint bronzé. Cela peut me coûter combien?.Merci
