10 tips to freshen up your beauty routine

From your skin and makeup to your colour-treated locks and nails, here are 10 product suggestions (and a few pro tips!) to freshen up your beauty routine.


Revamp your daily skin care routine

Follow these two golden rules:

Choose the right products for your skin. Ingredients and formulas differ depending on whether you have dry, combination, oily, sensitive, or acne-prone skin.

Keep it simple. Applying too many active ingredients to your skin can over-stimulate it and cause redness, breakouts, or itching. To avoid this, use the following three products, morning and night:

  • A cleanser that will gently remove oil, impurities, and makeup.
  • A toner or serum that will target your skin’s main needs: hydration, radiance, reduction of signs of fatigue or aging, etc. (These needs may vary depending on the time of year.)
  • A moisturizer in the form of a cream, gel, or fluid that will lock in moisture and help protect your skin from harsh environmental factors.

Reminder: Apply sunscreen every day! This step is crucial. UV rays can damage your skin even when it isn’t warm or sunny.

Our recommendations:

  1. CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser. Developed in collaboration with dermatologists, this ceramide-enriched product cleanses and quenches your skin without altering its natural protective barrier.
  2. Hyalu B5 Anti-Aging Serum from La Roche-Posay. The hyaluronic acid in this serum gives your skin an extra dose of hydration and helps with toning and radiance.
  3. LiftActiv Collagen Specialist from Vichy. Formulated with peptides, this treatment is specially designed to offset the effects of collagen loss: it maintains the suppleness and firmness of the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Re-stock your makeup bag

Think efficiency! Choose a few versatile staples that you can use to create multiple looks:

  • A lengthening or thickening mascara that suits your lashes. You can apply one or more layers, coat your bottom lashes if you like, concentrate on your outer lashes for a more striking look—there are so many possibilities!
  • A black eyeliner that’s fine enough to draw a subtle line, precise enough to create a cat eye, and intense enough to finish off a smoky look.
  • A moisturizing lip gloss that will hydrate your lips while giving them a pop of colour. Depending on how much you apply, you can opt for a slightly tinted effect or a bold, vibrant look.

Our recommendations:

  1. Air Volume Mega Mascara by L’Oréal Paris. The whipped formula adds volume to your lashes without weighing them down and stays smudge-free for 24 hours.
  2. Maybelline New York Eyestudio Master Precise All Day Liquid Eyeliner. The ultra-fine tip and deep colour make this the perfect eyeliner for precision work.
  3. NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss. This creamy, luxurious product can be worn alone or over lipstick. Luscious lips guaranteed!

Pamper your hair

Like your skin, your hair also needs a good routine.

  • Use a shampoo enriched with keratin or another protein to strengthen your hair without harming it.
  • Apply a conditioner a few times a week to give your hair extra moisture.
  • If necessary, give your locks an intensive treatment with a nourishing mask.
  • If you dye your hair, look for products designed specifically for coloured hair.

Our recommendations:

  • L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise Total Repair 5 Shampoo. Enriched with proteins and cicamide, this shampoo makes hair thick, strong, luscious, shiny, and soft. What more could you ask for?
  • L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise Total Repair 5 Conditioner. This product complements the shampoo by enhancing the effects of its active ingredients.
  • Le Color Gloss by L’Oréal Paris. Easy to use, this salon-inspired product is designed to take care of colour-treated hair while highlighting its natural hues.

Rethink your manicure

Give your nails the royal treatment.

  • Make sure you have the right tools: nail scissors, a quality file, a nail buffer, and a cuticle pusher should all be in your arsenal.
  • Apply a base coat and a top coat: these products will strengthen your nails and make your polish last longer.
  • Whether or not you use a manicure lamp, look for a polish that’s durable and non-streaky.
  • Use an acetone-free nail polish remover that’s gentle on your nails.

Our recommendation:

  1. Essie Nail Polish, a long-lasting classic with a soft, glossy finish.
