Our Beauty Editor Marika Zaramella has selected her favorite products containing active ingredients, ideal for your morning and evening skincare. Read on to discover when, why and how to use them.
Two genderless brands with minimal design. Grüum’s Cleanser Kòri is 100% natural with botanical extracts and a light fragrance given by essential oils. It cleanses while exfoliating the skin in a gentle way and its gel consistency is super pleasant. Grown Alchemist’s Face Cream, to be used after cleansing in a basic skincare (composed by detergent + moisturizing cream only) contains vitamin E and peptides, therefore it keeps the skin elastic and healthy.
Huxley’s Secret of Sahara Sleep Mask with its gel consistency is to be applied as the last step of the evening routine (above the cream). It absorbs quickly and does not stick to the pillow. To leave on overnight and to rinse the next morning, this Korean’s treatment leaves the skin super hydrated, fresh and it smells like flower petals.
The Honieh’s Rise & Shine 100% Vegan Anti Aging Mask. White clay and hyaluronic acid based it purifies and hydrates the skin without over-drying it. To be used for a hydration boost and to calm the skin after a stressful day.
A trio for oily / combination skin: Bybi Beauty (ecological and vegan brand) Swipe Clean Oil to remove makeup. After this we recommend a foaming cleanser of your choice. Immediately after Dr Hauschka‘s Clarifying Day Oil, a mix of rebalancing oils that purify the skin. As a last step, the water-based Invisible Shield Sunscreen by Glossier, to be applied every day to protect your skin from sun and pollution.
This Night Cream called Vinoperfect by Caudalìe, is shea butter (very full-bodied) and glycolic acid based. It exfoliates overnight and accelerates cell turnover. The cream lightens hyperpigmentation and revives dull complexion as well.
