Building a Great Skin Routine

If you’ve lived long enough you’ll know that anything worth having requires a bit of planning. Nowhere is this more true than with skincare. Looking and feeling great may require a bit of effort, but the results are worth it.

Let us compare the ideal skincare routine to the structure of a house. The foundation of the house can be linked to cleansing and toning. These two steps go hand in hand. Regular facial cleansing and toning is critical in maintaining healthy looking and feeling skin. Throughout the day your skin is exposed to bacteria, viruses, pollutions, dirtand dead skin cells. Daily facial cleansing and toning removes this layer of dirt and grime to give the skin a fresh look and help products to effectively penetrate the skin.

The ground that the house is built on gives it a solid base. Without a solid base the house will collapse. Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in any skincare system and forms the basis to open up the skin for subsequent skincare. Whatever you choose to do next for your skin will be significantly more effective after a basic AHA, BHA and PHA treatment as fruit acids enhance product efficacy. Effective exfoliation should be done regularly, consistently and safely. Peeling with QMS has no undesired side effects. The exfoliants are safe for all skin types and conditions – even sensitive and problematic skin. They can be used all year round because there is no sensitivity to the sunand  do not make the skin ‘thinner’.

The wall of the house gives it structure. Anyone from the age of 25 can benefit from using QMS Day and Night Collagen Serums. They are formulated with an advanced collagen and hyaluronic acid complex to deliver instant and long-term results. All signs of aging are contributed to the loss of collagen, first signs such as fine lines and wrinkles, deeper stagnant lines, and loss of elasticity. Collagen incorporated skincare is a key factor in keeping the skin youthful and QMS collagen products have been formulated with a patented delivery system that has been clinically proven to deliver the following results:

• Outstanding moisturizing effect
• Improvement in skin smoothness and elasticity
• Skin renewal support
• Strengthens the skin’s protective barrier
• Wrinkle reduction
• Reduces overall signs of aging

For existing QMS clients that need a booster treatment we recommend QMS Collagen Concentrate 7-days System. It contains double the concentration of an advanced collagen and hyaluronic acid complex that intensively plumps and moisturises the skin. This special combination evens out the fine lines, provides deep-acting moisture, plumps up the skin from the inside  and gives it new energy.

The eyes are the windows to the soul, but they are also the first to show signs of aging. Incorporating an eye cream into your daily skincare routine can help minimise the appearance of wrinkles as well as tackle other skin concerns like dryness, puffiness, dark circles and pigmentation. The sooner the better! It is easier to prevent signs of aging than to correct them. We recommend investing in an eye cream from the age of 25.

Whether you want to tackle fine lines, treat dark circles, or reduce puffiness, these QMS picks have got you covered:

• Dark circles and puffiness – QMS EpiGen Depuff Pollution Shield Eye Serum
• Dryness and sensitivity – QMS Intensive Eye Care Day & Night Eye Cream
• Multiple signs of aging, sun damage and pigmentation – QMS Advanced Cellular Alpine Day & Night Eye Cream
• Instant renewal – QMS Advanced Collagen Eye Lift Eye Sheet Masks

The roof of the house offers protection. Moisturising and applying a sunscreen every day will go a long way towards protecting your skin and slowing down aging. Within the QMS Moisturiser collection we have something for everyone. QMS moisturisers have been formulated according to your skin type, condition, texture preferences and expected results while targeting multiple skin concerns.

SPF!!! We have saved the most important and fundamental “don’t-leave-home-without” product for last! It is important to use sun protection all year round, especially during summer when the burning UVB rays are much stronger. UVA rays maintains constant throughout the seasons. Applying a broad-spectrum sun cream with SPF30 – 50 will keep your skin in optimal condition long-term. We highly recommend QMS Cellular Sun Shield SPF 50+ to protect your skin from natural and artificial light.

Once the house is built then you can invite guests into your home. Similarly, once you have the right cleanser, toner, exfoliator, collagen serum, moisturiser and sunscreen then you can look at adding a serum, lip care, mask  or neck cream according to your specific needs. Whether you want a comprehensive or simple skincare routine, QMS has the solution for you. QMS skincare products are safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women, all skin types and conditions, men and women and your routine can be tailored according to your lifestyle and needs.
