Circularity is an inevitable rhythm of our lives. We sleep, wake up, eat, go to work and take vacations at regular intervals. We plan and live our lives in daily, weekly, monthly periods. One of the most important factors that ensure the source and sustainability of life is cyclicity. Seasons, rains, harvests, migrations, births and deaths continue in a rhythm and harmony in nature. So, how does this cyclicity, which we can briefly call the rhythm of life, affect our body and skin? If we can keep up with this rhythm, the cyclicity, which is the source of life for our skin, will undoubtedly be a unique opportunity for us. It is very important to know our skin and to give correct answers to its different needs in certain periods to prevent premature aging and skin problems. It is possible to recognize the cyclicity of our skin, to support, purify and moisturize the skin metabolism with natural vegetable oils during the self-renewal and repair stages, by applying our right skin care routine. In this article, we will learn how to keep up with the rhythm of our skin, and we will look for answers to the question of what skin care routine should be.

Our skin lives with cyclicity just like nature and our body. Daily skin care routine is one of the most important practices in providing the support our skin needs in this cyclical period. Our skin, which consists of 3 main layers, renews itself as long as we support the youth mechanism. The skin cells in the epidermis, which is the upper layer of the skin, lose their vitality over time due to seasonal and environmental factors, nutrition, sleep disorder and lack of care. Dead cells are pushed out of the epidermis with dandruff or flaking that we see on our skin over time. Thus, living cells are made room and the skin is renewed. Again in this cyclicity, healthy cell metabolism covers the skin surface with a hydro-lipid layer consisting of oil + sweat emulsion. This layer keeps our skin moist and supports its defense against external factors. Here, the skin care routine is the care rituals we apply regularly to support these activities of the skin metabolism in renewing itself. Having a regular skin care routine is essential for a younger, radiant and healthy-looking skin. The skin care routine you will apply with natural skin care products will make you look healthier, younger and more beautiful and help you feel better. Let's take a closer look at the details of the skin care routine to ensure the integrity of the mind and body.


How Should Skin Care Routine Rank?

How Should Your Skin Care Routine Be?
In all skin care products, the order of use should be arranged according to the viscosity of the products. In other words, the basic principle is to use the products in the right order from the fluid ones to the less fluid ones. For example, tonic should be applied before creams. If you are using a serum, the order should be tonic > serum > cream. From another point of view, we can say that it would be more accurate to use it from fast-absorbing to slow-absorbing by the skin. The first step to create a skin care routine should be daily skin cleansing. Purifying your skin of dirt, oil, make-up and toxins is a prerequisite for a natural skin care routine. Afterwards, you can apply the natural skin care products from fast-absorbing to less-absorbing in the above order. Now, let's look for an answer to our skin care routine and the question of how the daily face cleaning routine should be.

Skin Cleansing: We mentioned that the skin pushes out dead cells for its own cyclical metabolism. This can cause dandruff on the skin and eventually pore clogging. In addition, external factors such as make-up, sweat and pollution, which are the environmental conditions we are exposed to on a daily basis, cause the skin to breathe by closing the skin pores and prevent the passage of substances between cells. Our priority should be a gentle and purifying cleansing routine, both to support the skin's natural cycle and to increase the effects of care products. Thus, your skin will be purified, renewed and ready to absorb the healthy metabolisms in natural care products. You can moisturize your face while purifying with Alfheim Geranium Purifying Facial Soap containing vegetable oil, and you can start the day with a lively and clean skin with the care-giving feature of geranium oil.
How to Clean Your Skin
For those who are looking for an answer to the question of how daily facial cleansing should be, Geranium Soap is an ideal helper. It gently purifies and cares for your skin with its natural formula based on Coconut and Sunflower Oil, which does not contain palm oil. Thanks to this product, you do not need to use tonic. With Hemp and Pumpkin Fiber Peeling soap, which does not contain mineral oils that are not absorbed by the skin and cannot participate in the natural metabolism of the skin, you can cleanse your entire skin with the peeling effect, moisturize it and make it ready for your care routine.

Soaps produced with chemical surfactants and cleansers lubricate the hydro-lipid layer of the skin and damage the natural skin flora. Instead of soaps with chemicals that will damage the skin barrier, soaps containing natural and vegetable oils are perfect for skin cleansing. Natural oils in their content naturally support the epidermis and cell metabolism. For this reason, care soaps containing natural oils should be preferred for skin cleaning.

Serum and Oils According to Skin Type and Skin Needs: The post-cleansing step should be to choose 100% natural vegetable oils for our skin type and needs. We mentioned that mineral, that is, unnatural oils, cannot participate in skin metabolism. These oils are obtained by chemical means and are not compatible with the skin. Although they create a temporary feeling of moisture on the skin surface due to their lack of absorption by the skin, they may cause deterioration of biological epidermis functions in long-term use. This will cause your skin to become dependent on artificial moisturizers and eventually to an impaired skin metabolism.
Serum and Oils According to Skin Type and Skin Needs
You can revive skin metabolism and youth mechanism with 100% natural vegetable oils. For this, Alfheim carrier oils, which you will use in accordance with your skin type and needs after cleansing, will help to nourish your skin by being included in your skin metabolism with its nourishing fatty acids and phytochemicals. You can also choose Alfheim Tamanu Oil for your acne skin care routine. For the dry skin care routine, Alfheim Jojoba Oil is nourishing and moisturizing.

Creams and Lotions: After cleansing, it's time to support the skin, which you have nourished and moisturized with 100% natural oils, with creams and lotions. Daily skin care routine should continue with natural ingredients. Therefore, it is important for your skin health to choose creams and lotions fortified with natural oils. As with the selection of oil and serum after cleaning, you should correctly determine your skin type and need in the selection of creams and lotions.

After cleaning with Purifying Geranium Soap, the pure care oils you will choose according to your skin type will provide you with natural and effective skin care.

Night Skin Care Routine

Night care routine is very important. Environmental factors that the skin is exposed to throughout the day, negative effects such as heat, cold, sun and make-up tire the skin. Providing care by resting your tired skin with night care is important for you to get a younger and firmer appearance by delaying the signs of aging in the long run. After purifying cleaning, mix Almond and Jojoba oil in equal proportions and wait for 5 minutes, then add Lavender and Geranium oil at a ratio of 1:100 (1 percent) to the existing mixture and mix again. Thus, your 100% natural care serum will be ready to protect and renew the skin against free radicals and environmental factors. After applying the mixture to the skin with light massage movements, you can wait for it to absorb. In addition, Alfheim Nighty Night Night Care cream, which you will use for your night skin care routine, will make your skin ready for a restful sleep.

Serum

After cleansing, the skin is refreshed with its open pores and is ready to absorb the active ingredients for care. Serums are products that contain valuable ingredients that provide this care. For the long-term health and naturalness of your skin, you can choose valuable carrier oils with rich content. Grape Seed Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil and Fig Seed Oil are some of them. These valuable oils nourish and moisturize your skin with nourishing fatty acids and phytochemicals. Valuable vegetable oils, which are suitable for skin flora and can be involved in skin metabolism, will help your skin look younger and healthier, while helping to remove signs of aging.

Moisturizer

Long-term youth and beauty can be achieved when the daily skin care routine is created with natural products. For this reason, products that do not contain mineral oil should be preferred when choosing a moisturizer. Moisturizers formulated with natural oils ensure the moisture balance of your skin and help protect it all day long.
