Hydration: the key to balanced skin
Maskné, redness, flaking, tightness ... who has not heard of any of these problems in recent months? As we have already mentioned on previous occasions, the skin has a powerful ability to reflect our inner world and, the experiences of this year and our way of facing them, are also giving us information through the face.
At HMB we will never tire of repeating that both cleaning and hydration are key when it comes to preventing and treating these conditions: 2 basic and essential gestures aimed at balancing the skin and improving its adaptive capacity to various situations.
Specifically, regarding facial hydration, lately there is talk about the 7-Layer Method. But what is this 7 Skin Method? This method of Korean origin deals with the application of between 3 and 7 layers of tonic, floral water or essence on the face, in order to give the skin a drink, giving it a s hydration to keep it juicy and radiant. Thanks to this new way of using the toner, we achieve and allow the skin to absorb a small amount of essence with each application, hydrating the face in a progressive and lasting way. Say goodbye to flaking, tightness and dryness this season!
The routine is very simple: you just have to clean your face with your usual cleaning product and, preferably with the skin still moistened, apply the first layer of toner with the help of a cotton ball, gently rubbing the skin from the center of the face to the sides. The rest of the layers will be superimposed, leaving a space of between 10 and 15 seconds between them for the absorption of the product, with the help of the hands, by gently touching the face, or with a spray as a mist.
Each skin will require a greater number of layers of essence, between 3 and 7, depending on its current state, so it is interesting to start with the application of 3 or 4 layers and gradually increase them depending on the reactions that we observe before this new how to use our tonic. In addition, something important to take into account when selecting our facial mist will be to avoid the presence of alcohol or synthetic fragrances in its formula, as they could irritate the skin and take us away from the desired goal.
At HMB we have our facial essence All In One Mist, a mist made from ginger, green tea, chamomile and lavender, antioxidant, calming and revitalizing ingredients, to help you avoid dryness and loss of elasticity, hydration and tone of the face. We assure you that with this tonic, you will be able to incorporate this new gesture of beauty and self-care in a safe, effective and very pleasant way, thanks to its natural aromas.
