Toning your skin is another important part of any good skin care routine. To get your skin ready for the cream, use a mist toner that contains soothing ingredients such as aloe vera, chamomile, coconut, cucumber or damask rose. This way you will eliminate any irritation caused by rubbing your skin with a cotton pad. The skin will be refreshed, smooth and soft. To maintain this effect for as long as possible, you can repeat the application throughout the day.
Massage your face

There is no ideal cream that would suit everyone. To take proper care of your skin, you need to know its needs. It is worth to observe our skin – how it behaves after washing, how it reacts to temperature changes, whether it gets shiny. This will allow us to learn about our skin type, thanks to which we will choose the perfect cream that will provide it with all the necessary ingredients
Use UV filters
UV filters should be used all year round, not only in summer. They protect our skin from harmful rays and help avoid discoloration. You can find creams with high UV protection both in the pharmacy and in the drugstore.
Apply eye cream
Maybe not always eye cream will replace concealer and eliminate all the bruising, but it will certainly reduce the appearance of dark circles. A good cream helps hide the signs of fatigue a bit, moisturizes the delicate skin under your eyes and leaves it supple. For a refreshing and awakening effect, you can put the cream in the refrigerator overnight to enjoy a gently cooling and refreshing effect in the morning.
Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler
You don’t need mascara to define and open your eye, just curl your lashes with an eyelash curler for a fresher look. By curling your lashes upward, they will optically volumize and appear longer
Moisturize your lips
The last step to complete your lip care regimen is to use a lip balm. Not only will it take care of your lips, but it will also give them a subtle sheen and, with some products, even color. Apply it as often as you need throughout the day. You can also use a lip scrub from time to time to remove dry cuticles.
