4 Tips and tricks for the correct use of cosmetics

We all know that the higher the quality of the cosmetic product, the healthier and more radiant our facial skin becomes. But even if you buy and use quality cosmetic products without the knowledge of how to use them, you may not benefit by the full therapeutic, restorative and nutritional potential that the product you have purchased offers.

We, at Alona Shechter, decided to guide and help our customers with the proper use of cosmetics. After following  our instructions, you will notice the  improvement of your facial skin as a result of the correct use. It is less wasteful and more efficient and you will notice immediate results.


Check the expiration date on your cosmetic product

All cosmetic products have an expiry date which stipulates the final date that the product may be sold by the supplier. The sign of an open box indicates that the product may be used for a period of 3 - 24 months after opening, as stipulated on the packaging.

The same way you check the expiration date of perishables at a supermarket, you should also check the expiration date of cosmetic products. Use of an expired cosmetic product may cause allergic reactions and skin problems like fungi.

Wash your hands thoroughly before using any cosmetic product

Sounds trivial, right? But I know of cases whereby women have forgotten this little detail.

Use of cosmetic products that are used before washing hands may cause mold and bacteria to appear in the cosmetic product, which, in turn,  may transfer this mold and bacteria to the skin. The result is that the product will become unusable and is detrimental to the skin.

We recommend washing your hands with an antiseptic soap such as Achillea Soapless Soap before applying any cosmetic product such as: serum, moisturizers, nutrients etc.

Create a routine home treatment

As you may know, every 24 hour day has 1440 minutes. All you need is 5 minutes a day to care for your face and body. We women make time each day to care for our children, husband, parents and friends, but we never have time for ourselves. Just like you brush your teeth twice a day there are several things you must do to take care of your skin.

If you don't have a regular routine of facial and body care, the result could become a long term problem.

Routine creates skill. By having a routine and sticking to it builds a commitment which should be applied daily in the mornings and evenings. Your grooming routine should include using a cleansing facial product, serum and moisturizer. If you keep to this routine twice a day, your skin will benefit and you will notice the results over time.

Now that we understand the importance of a routine and that you need only 5 minutes a day It is also important to know the correct way to apply the products. Enjoy the process and you will experience improvement in your facial skin.

Follow the following steps:

In the morning:

1. Cleaning - Use Achillea Soapless Soap which cleans and disinfects the skin at the highest level. Apply on wet skin and rub gently on the face. You can also use a special swab for the maximum effect. This thoroughly removes accumulated dead cells, dirt and grease.

2. Serum - It is highly recommended to apply Classic Serum after cleansing. The serum is used as a kind of intermediary between the skin and the moisturizer which allows the skin to absorb all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients that is in the moisturizing cream and works throughout the day. Apply the serum on your face lightly using dabbing movements with your fingers.

3. Moisturizer - Apply a small amount of Beautyli Day Cream on your face and rub in circular motions into the skin. Do not forget the neck. I recommend massaging for at least one minute. The elasticity and glow of the skin will return and as a result will stimulate the circulation.

In the evening:

1. Cleaning - cleanse the face of make-up with Achillea Soapless Soap and sponge before going to sleep.

2. Moisturizer - in the evening, use a night cream that nourishes the skin while you sleep. Use the same process of moisturizing as mentioned earlier.

3. Vitamin Oil - the role of Vitamin Oil is to reduce the wrinkles in the skin. It enters the skin at night and leaves it looking healthy. Apply 5 drops on all areas where wrinkles appear: forehead, around the eyes, on the sides of the nose and mouth and, of course, do not forget the neck.

Finally - just enjoy the process. Facial Skin Care is our way of taking care of ourselves over time. Looked after skin starts to look radiant, smooth, uniform and full of moisture.
