Summertime face care
May, 2022
Skin care does not need to be complicated, and the perfect routine can consist of just a few products. Here, we will guide you through an effective skin care routine, including how to best incorporate sun protection.

Step by step

Below you will find a step-by-step guide to an effective and thorough skin care routine. Follow the whole guide or choose the steps that you find most useful for your skin.

Step 1 – Cleanse and exfoliate

For the most effective routine, we start by cleansing our skin. Using Our mild cleansing foam will remove impurities without drying out your skin. Another option is to use a face exfoliator with apricot kernels that exfoliate your skin and remove dead skin cells. If you use both, then remember to use the exfoliator second as it is otherwise wasted on removing dirt instead of exfoliating and removing skin cells as intended.

For exfoliating your skin, you have a third, wonderful option – konjac sponges. These small sponges work great for exfoliating your skin and increasing blood circulation, leaving it soft and beautiful. At Meraki we have three different konjac sponges. The black one, gives you a gentle exfoliation and is suited for use on oily skin, the white one which is great for all skin types and the green sponge which is great for aging or sun-damaged skin.

Step 2 – Face mist

Give your face a refreshing boost with a moisturising face mist. Thanks to aloe vera and glycerine, your skin preserves its natural moisture balance and elasticity. Use it as part of your skin care routine or as an instant pick-me-up that adds moisture and gives your skin a radiant complexion.

Step 3 – Serum

All skin types need moisture. Oily skin can actually be caused by a lack of moisture which the skin tries to compensate for. With a serum you can add much needed care and moisture.
At Meraki we have two perfume-free serums: A and H. Serum A has an anti-age effect coming from hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, brown algae and cranberry extract. Serum H adds moisture to your entire face and eye-area and is rich in brown algae and vitamin E which is an antioxidant protecting your skin. Both serums can be used day and night, but we recommend using serum A in the morning and serum H at night. Both should be used on dry, clean skin. Let the serums absorb into your skin before continuing your routine.

Step 4 – Day cream

Finally, the day cream. Our nourishing and moisturising day cream will leave your skin soft, smooth and well-moisturised. Ready to take on a new day. To reduce signs of aging, a brown algae extract protects your skin and stimulates your collagen level. Thanks to hyaluronic acid, betaine and aloe vera, you get an anti-wrinkle effect, as they lock in moisture, reduce fine lines and make your skin supple and smooth. Apply an even layer of the face cream to your face and neck either directly after cleansing or after applying serum.

Step 5 – Sun protection

Sun protection should be an essential part of any skin care routine as the sun’s rays can damage your skin all year round – even in cloudy weather. Our sun series gives you a wide selection of products protecting and moisturising your skin. With our water-resistant Facial Sun Cream with SPF 30, you are well protected in the sun. The chemical UVA and UVB filters absorb the harmful UV rays and do not leave any white residue or greasy feeling. Rich in vitamin E and soothing aloe vera, your skin stays hydrated, soft and supple as you soak up the sun. Apply a generous amount and make sure it is absorbed before going outside. Repeat if you are staying outside for a longer period.
