I) The definition and foundations of layering

Ah, layering! If you are a fan of natural cosmetics then you have probably already heard of it. But what is it exactly? Coming from an ancestral Japanese ritual, this technique, also nicknamed Millefeuille because of its multiple layers, is the secret to smoother, plumper and luminous skin.

The principle ? Methodically layer treatments to purify the skin, deeply nourish it and strengthen it to face external aggressions. Every skin type finds something to suit it in this ritual which can be infinitely personalized. You can also practice layering in the morning or evening depending on your preferences.

By practicing layering, you apply active ingredients contained in products in an optimized way. Layering is the haute couture of skin care, a true cosmetic choreography where each movement has its importance.

II) The 6 key stages of layering

To succeed with this method, there are 6 steps to follow scrupulously:

  1. The Makeup Remover: Here, the goal is to dissolve impurities and makeup, even the most stubborn.
  1. The Cleanser: After the makeup remover, switch to a gentle soap-free cleanser to cleanse without stripping the skin, thus preserving its hydrolipidic film.
  1. The Lotion: This completes the cleaning and eliminates traces of limescale from the tap water used. This is the transition stage, the lotion prepares the skin to receive the following treatments.
  1. The Serum: Concentrated in active ingredients, the serum targets specific problems such as fine lines, lack of firmness or pigment spots.
  1. The eye contour: This delicate area deserves its own treatment, often richer, to hydrate without irritating and thus avoid fine lines from dehydration.
  1. Moisturizing Cream: Depending on whether it is applied in the morning or evening, you can apply a day or night cream. This seals in hydration and regenerates your skin.

To finish your routine in style, apply a lip balm to fill up on nutrition.
