How do you take care of your face?
From the right cleansing to facial gymnastics: Our Brigitte editors present their skin care routine.
Because skin matters also have a lot to do with personal preferences and experiences: one topic, four approaches.
Abenaa Namslau: Good care starts with nutrition
It may sound far-fetched, but I believe that good skin care starts from within. I rely on a healthy, balanced diet with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. And from the outside? I swear by peeling cleansers for a glow and good care – and by my Gua Sha stone, which I use to touch up the contours of my face at every opportunity. This not only feels good, but also strengthens a little – and that can never hurt.
Linda Shllaku: Proven instead of too many active ingredients
When it comes to skin care, I mainly stick to two active ingredients: niacinamide and vitamin C. What else has proven itself and gives me a home spa feeling in the bathroom: my cleaning tool with microcurrent and LED light therapy. It really cleans and removes dead skin cells. This allows the active ingredients to penetrate better and the skin has a nice, rosy glow.
Anja Haegele: Good creams and gymnastics against wrinkles
As a teenager, my mother used to take me to the beautician because I suffered from acne. Since then I have been using high-quality creams. A few years ago I took a “Cantienica” course to treat teeth grinding: The muscles in the mouth and neck area are strengthened with gymnastics – and the exercises are also said to work against wrinkles. I think that’s true: my worry lines are smaller if I practice regularly!
Anna-Lisa Blank: Cleaning is underestimated
Water and a simple day cream: That’s all I used to use. Since my young and fresh appearance is fading more and more over the years, I have now integrated a cleansing routine that suits my skin type into my routine: I no longer go to bed without having thoroughly cleaned my face from the dirt of the day – and regardless of whether I wore makeup or not.
