What if there was a way to turn back the sands of time and stay forever young? That is known as magic, which may be a bit unattainable to most of us. However, the next best thing would be using high-quality, luxurious skincare from Lionesse in your routine. Say goodbye to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! Lionesse skin care reviews show that these products really do pave the path to youthful looking skin.
It is never too late to start using these products. Although experts recommend starting a preventative regime as early as your 20s, it’s okay if you missed the memo. Lionesse offers several sophisticated skincare products that can help with many of the visible signs of aging.
So, you might be wondering…
What are some of the products you should consider adding to your skincare arsenal?
A Good Face Cream
If you use nothing else, a good quality face cream will go a long way in treating and nourishing your skin. Our skin is prone to moisture loss throughout the day, known as transepidermal moisture loss (TEWL).
Has your skin ever felt tight or dry? This is a telltale sign that it isn’t producing adequate moisture on its own, or perhaps it is losing it rapidly due to environmental or intrinsic factors. With a little assistance from a cream, you can prevent skin dehydration while leaving your skin feeling soothed and comforted.
Creams are usually a lot richer and thicker than serums, so it is possible to use them as a stand-alone product. A rich yet non-greasy cream, such as the Black Onyx Cream from Lionesse, will be a treat for the skin. Lionesse skin care reviews show that the cream immediately gives the skin a softer and smoother appearance.
Do You Still Need to Use a Face Cream If You Have Oily Skin?
The idea of applying cream over already oily skin may lack appeal. Is it necessary? We tend to confuse oil and hydration.
Did you know that your skin can be oily and dehydrated at the same time?
Just because your skin is producing oil or sebum, it doesn’t mean that it’s able to absorb water or maintain hydration. Without moisture, the skin can be compromised.
So in short, yes! You should moisturize, whether your skin is oily or dry.
An Antioxidant-Rich Serum
This step usually goes between your cleanser and moisturizer. Yes, you read that right. It doesn’t replace your daily facial cream, but rather is used in conjunction with it.
Serums are usually quite thin and packed with active ingredients.
You’ll find several serums available from Lionesse. The Golden Sapphire Serum is a good place to start, while Lionesse skin care reviews also reveal that the Black Onyx Serum is a favorite among those looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
An Eye Cream
As suggested, this is a cream that you should use around your eye area. You might be wondering: Do you need a separate cream for your eyes? Can’t you simply use your face cream around your eyes?
The short answer is no. While it can be done, it doesn’t mean it should be done.
The skin around your eyes is very different from the skin on the rest of your face. For one, it’s much thinner and far more delicate than the rest of your skin. Secondly, there are significantly fewer sebaceous glands around the eyes, which simply means you need all the additional help you can get.
Around your eyes will be more prone to dryness, resulting in wrinkles, laugh lines, and crow’s feet. Some eye creams are even formulated with caffeine, which is known to reduce the visibility of puffiness that you can sometimes experience when you first wake up in the morning.
Swollen under-eyes can usually be a result of fluid retention. Sometimes, it’s just our anatomy. But whether that retention is caused by genetics, lack of sleep, allergies, lifestyle, one too many alcoholic drinks, or an extra salty meal, the puffiness can be uncomfortable and feel a bit heavy on the eyes.
A good eye cream will be like a cup of morning coffee for your eyes! The Amber Eye Cream from Lionesse is formulated with caffeine and Vitamin E. Lionesse skin care reviews rave about how this formula is a lightweight treat for the eyes.
If you’re prone to a lot of darkness under your eyes, then the Amber Dark Circle Eye Cream from Lionesse will be your best friend. If you don’t believe us, believe all of the Lionesse skin care reviews that say the same. This eye cream also contains Vitamin A, which will reveal an under-eye that looks more youthful and well-rested.
An Eye Serum
Wait, what? Yes, the same principle applies here! While you can safely use an eye cream on its own, using it in conjunction with an eye serum will give you even more benefits.
Apply your eye serum first, before following up with an eye cream. If you don’t yet have a go-to eye serum, listen to the many Lionesse skin care reviews out there. The Amber Eye Serum, which is packed with vitamins, peptides, and botanical extracts, will quickly have your eye area looking tighter and brighter.
Sun protection is a must when it comes to reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It doesn’t just protect you from sunburn and skin cancer. Studies have shown that regular sunscreen use can protect against photoaging – or as we know it, the wrinkling, sunspots, and loss of elasticity we can sometimes experience when exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.
Professionals recommend using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. The Opal Sheer Shield from Lionesse combines the luxury of diamond powder, powerhouse ingredients such as green tea extract, and Vitamin E with the appropriate SPF for a protected, radiant glow. Lionesse skin care reviews show how much customers love this formula!
A Face Mask
A mask should be used as a weekly treat to help your skin. Many people like to do masks closer to events because their skin will feel much fresher, firmer, and appear to be more radiant after a mask.
The right face mask should treat your specific concerns. All of that sounds fantastic already, but masks are also such a luxurious, pampering experience. Like bringing a bit of the spa to your home!
Here at Lionesse, we’ve got several face masks for you to choose from. Lionesse skin care reviews show that the Ultimate Diamond Lifting Mask is a popular choice among those looking to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
How to Correctly Apply Your Skincare Products
Let’s start from the beginning. You always want to start with clean hands. Cleanse your face using lukewarm water and an appropriate cleanser for your skin type. We always recommend using something gentle, with simple yet effective ingredients, such as the White Pearl Facial Cleanser from Lionesse.
Massage the cleanser into your skin for about a minute, then rinse clean using lukewarm water. Pat your skin dry with a clean, soft towel. Next, you can use a toner on a cotton pad.
If you’re using an eye cream, that goes on next. Pat it under your eyes using your ring finger. You should use one of your weaker fingers since the skin around your eyes is thin and delicate. You should avoid tugging the skin around your eyes.
Next is when you should apply your face cream. For your face, you need about a nickel-sized amount of moisturizer. Any more than this will be too challenging for your skin to absorb, and it will probably feel greasy and heavy. If you’re also moisturizing your neck, you should aim for a quarter-sized amount.
Dot the cream around your face – on the cheeks, forehead, and chin. Whatever is left on the hands can be spread down the neck. Using your clean fingertips, massage the cream into your skin using circular and upward motions. You want to avoid pulling the skin downward as this will tempt gravity and encourage sagging.
Always follow with sunscreen! Apply it in the same manner as you did the face cream.
Lionesse has a wide range of products for various skin types and concerns. Whether you need something enriched with collagen and Vitamin A, or you need something a bit more gentle yet luxurious for dry, tired skin, you’ll find it here. Ask yourself: “What does my skin currently need to look and feel its best?” Nobody knows your skin better than you do (except perhaps a licensed dermatologist!), but with the help of Lionesse, you have a great starting point in finding the perfect products for your skin’s specific needs!
