The Key to Balanced Skin: Hydration
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 information through our face.
At HMB we will never get tire of repeating that, both cleaning and hydration are key when it comes to preventing and treating these conditions: Two 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 does this 7 Skin Method consist of? This Korean origin method, deals with the application of between 3 and 7 layers of tonic, floral water or essence on the face, providing it with a hydration shot that keeps the face, 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 type of 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 applications of 3 or 4 layers and gradually increase them depending on the reactions that we observe. 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.
In HMB we have our Herb Mist facial essence, a mist made with active ingredients such as Aloe Vera, calendula, thyme and lavender that, in addition, gives off a delicious aroma from a synergy of essential oils among which are myrrh, incense, vetiver, orange and eucalyptus, among others. This Calming, delicate and revitalizing ingredients will help you to 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.
