Bossa Skincare Daily Routine

Bossa Skincare Daily Routine

Game Changer

The Best Morning and
Night time Skin Care Routines

Your skin has different needs in the morning and night. "In the morning, your skin will try to protect itself from all the aggressors such as sun, heat, pollution and dirt—all of which can damage the skin and lead to premature ageing. So, in the morning, we give the skin "tools", active ingredients, to help your skin protect itself from the sun and the oxidative stress," says our skin expert Liv Portugal. "At night, you will repair all the damage, and you need to help your skin after all it went through during the day. It needs hydration, nourishment and repair," says Liv.

It's a quick, easy and super effective bossa skincare routine designed by Dermal Therapist Liv Portugal.

 

Step #1 Cleanse

Cleanse with just a splash of water in the morning and pat dry with a clean towel. You don't need to use a cleanser in the morning because your skin worked hard to repair itself during your sleep, and you don't want to remove all this good work with a cleanser. However, if you feel you need to cleanse your skin with a cleanser, I recommend cleansing with the Balancing Gel Cleanser

Step #2 Beauty Water Mist

Beauty Water Mist boosts hydration and antioxidant protection and primes your skin to serums and makeup. Spray the Beauty Water Mist onto the skin and pat with your fingers. You can also use as a make up set spray, and thought the day for a antioxidant boost and to refresh your skin. It is my favourite product for summer, and it is a must have in my beach bag alongside with SPF. 

Step #3 Antiox Eye Gel

Our Antiox Eye Gel will  soothe and moisturise the delicate eye area, and the antioxidant powers of Green Tea and cafeine will help reducing dark circles.

Using the tips of two of your fingers, pat it underneath your eyes and across top of the brow, gently dabbing your eyelids.

Step #4 Hydraboost B Serum

Hydraboost B serum is a water-based serum and will come before the Vitamin C15 serum in your morning routine. This serum will deeply hydrate your skin, while the niacinamide will help reduce oil production and inflammation and inhibit melanin production. 

Apply a few drops on your hands and using your fingertips, pat serum onto the face, neck and décolletage then smooth it outward.

Step #5 Vitamin C15 Serum

Vitamin C15 serum will protect your skin from environmental aggressors and oxidative stress while reducing signs of ageing and hyperpigmentation. This step is never to be skipped!! 
Apply a few drops on your hands and using your fingertips, pat serum onto the face, neck and décolletage then smooth it outward.
 

Step #6 Hydrate & Protect

Apply the Tinted Moisturiser Mineral SPF30 on your face, neck and décolletage.
If you feel the product s not spreading easily or the color is too dark, you can mix with a little bit of the Hydrating Lotion, or your foundation. 

Step #1 Double Cleanse

In the evening, it is vital to double cleanse your skin. Double cleansing will ensure you remove makeup, dirt and sebum that sits deep in your pores. I love using the Ipanema Glow Face Oil to remove make-up.

#1 Apply a pump of the Balancing Gel Cleanser on your hand and add warm water.
- No fancy tools are needed; use your fingers.
- Rub cleanser in big circles on your cheeks.
- Make semi-circles on the sides of your nose and big circles up and out across your forehead.
- Rinse, then splash with cold water.
- Pat dry with a Clean Towel.

#2 Repeat the #1 process.

 

Weekly Exfoliation

Use the Enzyme Pink Clay Mask or Purifying Mask 1 or 2 times a week.

- Use room-temperature water.

-Apply 1 tea spoon of the mask on your hands and add a few drops of water and mix to create a paste. You can add a few drops of the Ipanema Glow Face Oil in the mask to boost hydration and nourishment. 

- Gently rub product on your face in small, tight circles.

- Focus on areas like your nose and chin, and give more sensitive areas—like the apples of your cheeks—less attention.

- Leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes, or until its dry. 

- Rinse, and gently pat dry. Mild tingle and redness is normal.

 

Step #2 Beauty Water Mist

Spray the Beauty Water Mist onto the skin and pat with your fingers.

Step #3 Antiox Eye Gel

At night, the Antiox Eye Gel will help repair and nourish your eye skin and prevent ageing.

Using the tips of two of your fingers, pat it underneath your eyes and across top of the brow, gently dabbing your eyelids.

Step #4 Hydraboost B Serum

Hydraboost B serum in the evening will help repairing your skin, deeply hydrate and the niacinamide will continue to help reduce oil production and inflammation and inhibit melanin production. 

Apply a few drops on your hands and using your fingertips, pat serum onto the face, neck and décolletage then smooth it outward.

Step #5 Retinol+ Serum

Our Retinol+ serum contains 0.4% encapsulated Retinol and is enriched with powerful Australian Botanicals ingredients to regenerate, repair your cells and improve your skin overnight. 

Apply a few drops on your hands and using your fingertips, pat serum onto the face, neck and décolletage then smooth it outward.

 

Step #6 Hydrate

Dry - Sensitive Skin use Brightening Cream.

Oily - Combination and Acne prone Skin use the Brightening Cream or Hydrating Lotion

Glide and smooth moisturiser onto your skin, gently massaging it into the surface with firmer pressure than you used to apply serum. Putting your hands in a prayer position, move from the middle of your face outward, gliding from your nose out to your ears, your forehead out to your temples, and your chin out to your jawline with your fingertips.

Step #7 Nourish

And lastly apply the Ipanema Glow Face Oil. This oil is perfect to add a dewy look without being too over the top or greasy looking. It’s also great for mature skin because it will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Apply the Ipanema Glow Face Oil on your hands and using your fingertips, pat oil onto the face, neck and décolletage then smooth it outward.

And there you have it! The morning and night Bossa Skincare ritual for gorgeous, healthy skin!
