How to Create a Spa-Like Skincare Routine and Experience
Turn your skincare routine into an at-home facial by nourishing and caring for skin with Absolue – an indulgent range of spa-like skincare products.
Giving your skin spa-like treatment is not only a beautiful self-care ritual – but it’s also something sure to benefit your skin. As you treat yourself to luxurious skincare collection Absolue – consider making your skincare routine an at-home spa-like experience. Your skincare routine doesn’t have to be a quick and rushed task you do each morning or before you head to sleep. Rather – look at using your skincare routine as a way to create a spa day at home. Put your phone on do not disturb and block out some time – whether 15 minutes or an hour and get into a mindful state. Set the mood and create a space to relax and treat yourself. Slip on your bath robe, light a few candles and place some roses on the countertop to set a relaxing environment before you get to work cleansing, moisturizing and nourishing your skin.
A Spa-Like Skincare Routine
Cleanse the Skin
The first step of any skincare routine is to cleanse the skin and remove any impurities, dirt, and oils that could be lurking in the pores. Our Absolue Nurturing & Brightening Oil-In-Gel Cleanser with Grand Rose Extracts is a hydrating facial cleanser that gives a pampering spa-like cleansing experience as it gently purifies the skin, effortlessly removing impurities as well as long-lasting and waterproof makeup. Made with a precious blend of cleansing oils and Grand Rose Extracts, this nurturing gel facial cleanser moisturizes skin as it gently removes impurities, sweat and excess sebum. The nourishing oil-in-gel formula protects the moisture barrier and leaves skin feeling smoother, softer and more energized.
To cleanse skin as the first step in your luxury skincare experience:
• Apply a generous amount of the formula onto dry skin, spreading it on the entire face, but avoiding the eye area.
• Using dry fingers, gently massage the formula on skin in circular motions until it melts into an oil.
• Add water and massage again to create a luxurious, milky fluid.
• Rinse off the cleanser to unveil divinely cleansed skin, rinsing from the center to the exterior of the face.
Care for Skin with Serum
Whilst a moisturizer hydrates, a serum helps to target specific concerns or boost a certain quality or attribute. Which serum you choose to incorporate as part of your skincare facial routine will depend on your skin concerns and priorities. If looking to treat yourself to Absolue pick from one of our two serums:
For day and/or night: Absolue The Serum our Skin Surface Cell Renewing Serum, is the ultimate skincare treatment. A luxurious serum that helps accelerate skin surface cell renewal to reveal visibly smoother, plumper, glowing skin, the formula is infused with an exclusive blend of Grand Rose Extracts, Vitamin E, Pro-Xylane, and a gentle Exfoliating Acid Complex. With every application the serum provides a luxurious spa-like experience with its iridescent, transformative formula that emerges from a dense texture to one that absorbs quickly and feels lightweight on the skin.
To create an immersive at-home facial experience apply Absolue The Serum with this spa-like facial massage:
Using massage gestures to apply Absolue The Serum can help increase skin surface cell renewal, to reveal visibly plumper, smoother, glowing skin.
Step 1: Starting with a clean face, dispense 2 pumps of Absolue The Serum onto your fingertips. Blend them together and press onto your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin.
Step 2: Begin at the chin, use sweeping, circular movements up and out across the jawline, up and out across the cheeks and up around the eye area to the center of the forehead.
Step 3: Then at the center of the forehead, repeat up and out across the forehead and repeat all steps 1 more time.
Step 4: Swipe down along the sides of the nose, above and below the lips.
Step 5: Swipe under the chin and finish by massaging remaining product in a downward motion on the neck. Follow with your usual moisturizer.
For the evening time try Absolue Overnight Repairing Bi-ampoule Serum. Inspired by clinical skincare treatments, this concentrated anti-aging serum gives overnight skin surface barrier reparation – its overnight skin repair in a drop. Like a “supercharged serum,” the Absolue Bi-Ampoule is made with a bi-phased formula that provides fast, visible anti-aging results and 24-hour hydration, while repairing skin’s moisture barrier. Its overnight benefits will leave you waking up with glowing, hydrated skin and looking almost as though you had a facial the night before.
Hydrate Skin with Moisturizer
After using a serum it’s important to follow up with a moisturizer to add hydration to the skin. For total hydration and nourishment look to one of our most hydrating moisturizers – Absolue Soft Cream. The luxurious cream infuses skin with intense hydration, leaving skin looking firmer and brighter. As it is applied onto the skin, it transforms into a serum-like lotion that absorbs seamlessly, infusing skin with moisture without leaving a greasy or sticky feel. Absolue Soft Cream leaves skin feeling smoother and suppler, with a more even appearance. If you have extra-dry skin and need a real extra dose of hydration, look to use our Absolue Rich Cream – the indulgent cream visibly revitalizes skin with moisture, firmness and plumpness. The formula starts out as a thick hydrating cream then transforms to a thin serum-like lotion, to a thick layer for plumping skin with moisture – it’s the perfect indulgent treat for ultra-dry skin.
Care for the Eye Area
In any skincare routine, you should pay attention to the delicate eye area. For ultimate hydration and to give your daily skincare routine an at-home facial experience, try to incorporate both an eye serum and an eye cream.
To give total care to the eye area, start with an eye serum like our Absolue Revitalizing Eye Serum -- this revitalizing eye serum targets the delicate skin around the eyes, one of the face's most expressive features. The eye serum reveals eye contours that look rested and rejuvenated for a brighter, more youthful look. Immediately after use, skin looks fresher and feels hydrated, velvety to the touch.
For eye cream look to Absolue Revitalizing Eye Cream -- an indulgent eye cream that instantly diminishes the appearance of eye wrinkles and crow’s feet. Day after day, Absolue Eye Cream provides firmness to the delicate skin around the eye contours and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, crow's feet, and puffiness.
To care for the eye area:
• Apply eye cream twice daily, in the morning and at night, on clean, dry skin or after using your eye serum.
• Using your fingertips, apply small pearls of the cream to the delicate area under the eye, dotting from the outer to inner corners.
• Gently massage the cream on the eye area using small, circular motions.
• Avoid pulling the skin and applying too close to the eyes.
For an at-home facial: Try a Facial Mask
A skincare treatment or facial mask is like a supercharged version of your favorite serum or moisturizer and it’s designed to give a burst of benefits and hydration to your skin. A special product you can look to incorporate into your skincare facial routine a few times a month our Absolue Precious Cells Revitalizing Rose Face Mask is an opulent gel face mask infused with genuine rose petals. After use, skin feels refreshed, smoothed, nourished, and is plumped with moisture.
How to apply a facial mask for an at-home facial:
• After cleansing, apply the mask generously with the fingertips over the face and neck, avoiding the eye contour and mouth area.
• Leave facial mask on for 10 minutes before removing with a damp wash cloth and rinsing any excess.
Apply Lip Balm
As the final step in your at-home facial, it’s important not to forget the lips. For softer, more supple lips apply Absolue Nourishing Lip Balm Honey-In-Rose which wraps lips in a luxurious rich salve. With the combination of Acacia Honey, Beeswax and Rosehip Seed Oil, the balm helps to leave dry lips feeling nurtured, smoother and plumper.
