Third step

Use a facial tonic

Following facial cleansing, it is recommended to use a tonic that has a pH-neutral effect and gently removes even the last particles of dirt. Tonics are usually applied with a cotton wool pad in the morning and evening after cleansing and are not washed off afterwards.

If you have sensitive skin, it is advisable to use peelings more sparingly so as not to additionally irritate the skin's protective barrier. But A4 COSMETICS also offers the A4 ENZYME PEELING POWDER, a product suitable for every skin type. In addition, it is recommended to use a facial mask several times a week, depending on your needs: The A4 PERFECT BALANCE MASK shines especially with oily and mixed skin with a clarifying and calming result - the perfect conclusion of facial cleansing.

Further tips for facial cleansing

It is not only the right products and the order that matters, you should also take these points to heart:

  • At best, cleaning should only be done in the morning and evening - not additionally in between. Otherwise, you might deprive it of moisture and thus impair the protective function of the skin.
  • Always wash your face with lukewarm water, because if it is too cold or too warm, it has a negative effect on the skin's appearance.
  • In order not to irritate the skin unnecessarily, do not rub your face dry, but gently dab it with a towel.

After cleaning your face, you should also continue with further skin care - and a radiant complexion is guaranteed. If you suffer from a skin disease such as rosacea, you should take special care when cleaning your face - and consult a dermatologist if necessary.
