Discover makeup artist and Instagramstar Ellise Ferguson’s self-care evening routine with this easy-to-follow video. You’ll see just how Ellise removes her makeup and preps her skin for a restorative night’s sleep. Night-time is when our skin works hardest to repair and rejuvenate, producing more collagen which helps to plump and smooth skin. Harnessing this important time by ensuring skin is properly clean, hydrated and primed with active ingredients will help your skin to stay healthy and strong.
First up, Ellise removes her eye makeup with Bi-Facial Cleanser, a non-oily eye makeup remover that removes all eye makeup including waterproof mascara. Simply smooth across the eye area for fresh, clean eyes.
“It’s perfect for removing waterproof eye makeup and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers like myself.”
Next Ellise reaches for Mousse Éclat, our gently exfoliating foaming cleanser, an airy-foam with an ultra-soft texture that never dries skin out, and works to remove impurities, dead skin cells and makeup.
“It’s water activated and you can see it just melt and breakdown the makeup, leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth.”
Always use lukewarm water to remove your cleanser, water that's too hot can aggravate sensitive skin and make dry skin feel tight and uncomfortable.
Ellise is a huge fan of our bestselling Advanced Génifique Serum, which helps to support the skin barrier with a blend of 7 pre- and probiotics, alongside vitamin C and hydrating ingredients. She smooths the featherlight formula all over her face and neck to help restore her skin throughout the night.
“It contains hyaluronic acid, so my skin feels hydrated and looks more radiant, it’s an essential in my routine.”
CARING FOR YOUR EYES
The delicate skin around the eye area is one of the thinnest areas on the body, so it’s a good idea to give it a helping hand throughout the night with an enriched eye product to help support rejuvenation. Ellise uses our Advanced Génifique Eye Cream which deeply hydrates and delivers visible results for brighter, smoother looking eyes. It contains hyaluronic acid to help hydrate and plump and a complex of 7 prebiotic and probiotic derived extracts.
“Advanced Génifique Eye Cream helps strengthen the eye contour barrier as well as visibly reduce dark circles.”
“When I want an extra little pamper, I like to use a sheet mask,” says Ellise, reaching for Advanced Génifique Melting Sheet Mask. This powerful mask is enriched with the same amount of bifidus extract found in 1 full 30 ml bottle of our Advanced Génifique Serum and gives skin an instant moisturising and strengthening boost.
“It leaves my skin feeling smoother, fresher and more energised, I like to rub any remaining serum into skin and onto the back of my hands.”
All skin types can adopt this daily routine to help strengthen, hydrate and treat skin. Simply follow these steps to enjoy your own self-care routine before bed and you'll wake up looking and feeling refreshed with glowing, healthy skin.
