The first time I came across the twenty step skin care routine, I thought to myself, “Girl, ain’t nobody got time for that!”. No really.
Being the skin care freak that I am, I’m always on the lookout for new tips and tricks to tweak my skin care routine in a way that will help my skin become better and healthier. If I find something that I feel will enhance my regime, I have no qualms about having an additional step or two. But twenty? That’s too much, at least for me.
So if you’re someone who literally wants to do the bare minimum and still have radiant, glowing and youthful skin, or hardly have the time for more than a few steps, this is just for you.
I’m going to break down the Leovard minimalist skincare routine, consisting of just seven steps in the following paragraphs. So stick around if you want to learn how you can have fantastic skin in the shortest time possible!
Step 1: Cleanse the face
Undoubtedly, the first step of any routine has to be cleansing. Not only does it help to remove dirt and impurities, it enables the unclogging of pores along with providing gentle exfoliation which allows better absorption of the other products. The Leovard Multicleanser, consisting of potent ingredients, including several antioxidant and botanical oils, makes an effective yet gentle cleanser, suitable for all skin types.
The antioxidants ginger, oat kernel and green tea help to fight off free radicals, enabling the skin to remain youthful. The papaya extract provides gentle exfoliation, removing the dead skin cells and gives the skin a radiant glow. The oils of jojoba, olive oil and sunflower provide hydration and moisture, preventing the skin from drying out. Last but not the least, the hyaluronic acid and lactic acid promote collagen synthesis, giving the face a lift while the salicylic acid helps to prevent acne breakout.
All these ingredients work together to prepare the skin for the next step which is toning.
Step 2: Tone and Optimize
An underrated step in any skincare routine is toning. Many people often skip this step, thinking it doesn’t do much. However, nothing can be further from the truth. Even after cleansing your face using the most gentlest of cleansers, the skin can feel agitated due to the rubbing motion.
Toning allows the skin to calm down and reduce any inflammation and redness. It also helps to shrink your pores, giving your skin a smoother texture, enabling better absorption of the rest of the products in the routine.
The Leovard Tonic is a power house of eight antioxidants including aloe vera, alligator pepper, green tea, white willow and witch hazel, which help reduce inflammation, redness, and swelling and have potent healing, nourishing and soothing properties making it a fantastic addition to your routine.
If your skin has stubborn problem areas, like dry patches, blemishes, eczema or nasty razor bumps, you can also use the Leovard Elixir in this step. It consists of the same ingredients as the Tonic, however in a greater concentration, and can help remedy the issue. The roll-on bottle allows targeted application, enabling you to optimize your skin.
Step 3: Hydrate
Now that your skin is cleansed and toned, it’s time to hydrate it by restoring moisture to the skin.
The Leovard Serum consists of several oils, vitamins and is rich in antioxidants that help combat aging and blemishing. The antioxidants, especially chamomile and lavender provide a soothing and cooling effect, while the oils provide extreme hydration. The hyaluronic acid, known for its moisturizing and hydrating capabilities helps to make the skin feel supple and soft.
Step 4: Moisturize
Moisturizing your skin is extremely important. Our skin’s natural ability to produce oils decreases as we age, resulting in dry skin. So it’s a step that one must never skip, even if you have oily skin. Yes, you read that right. If you don’t apply a moisturizer, your skin will try to compensate by producing excess oil, which can lead to the clogging of pores and acne breakouts.
The Leovard Multicream is a lightweight moisturizer, with antioxidants and botanical oils, to give your skin a hearty boost of moisture and hydration, without feeling sticky or greasy.
Step 5: Replenish
A little bit of extra treat never hurt anyone, and that’s what this step is all about. The Leovard Oil Fusion, made up of eleven different organic botanical oils, helps to replenish the skin by improving moisture levels, restoring natural oils and combating aging, making your skin look soft, smooth and youthful.
What’s more, it can also be used on the hair and nails to make them stronger and healthier!
Step 6: Don’t forget the lips
To top it off, apply a generous layer of the Leovard Lip Luster on your lips. It consists of hyaluronic acid which is not only extremely hydrating and moisturizing, it gives your lips a natural plump, making them look fuller and luscious.
Step 7: Sanitize
To end your routine, sanitize your hands using the Leovard Sanitizer, consisting of silver ions and ethanol, which effectively kills germs, viruses and bacteria. It also consists of the hydrating and healing hyaluronic acid, preventing the skin on your hands from peeling and drying out.
All these products are free of harmful toxins, additives and fragrances which make them perfect for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
This minimalist routine helps to simplify your skin care regime by using the best ingredients with the least steps. So no need to fret about not having a routine with several elaborate steps because this minimalist seven step skincare routine will help your skin look and feel youthful, rejuvenated and radiant, unlike ever before.
