The Key to a Better Day: Routines

Creating routines that make us feel better is the key to making our days more enjoyable and productive. Personal care and beauty habits, which are an important part of these routines; It first prepares our soul and body for the new day and then allows us to end that day in peace. We listened to Valerie Dayan about her essential morning and evening beauty routines.

“The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is drop four drops from my bottle of A Curated Vibe flower essence. Then, if I ran the day before, I apply cold therapy to my knees and do a short meditation in the meantime. 

The products I use for my skin in my morning routine are not for any therapeutic purpose; it happens to wake up my skin and prepare it for the day. I usually just wash my face with water, but if I wake up with a slight oiliness, I gently clean it with Buly True Ionized Cleansing Water. I dilute Homemade Aromatherapy Rose Vinegar on a wet cotton ball and apply it to my face with tampon movements. If there is no special dryness, I do not apply cream to my skin in the morning; Especially in hot weather, my Zizia Botanicals or Misbahçe face sprays are sufficient. For my eye area, I use The Ordinary Caffeine Solution and Biologique Recherche VIP O2 eye cream, respectively. I feed them both by massaging with my Gua Sha tool; thus, by increasing the circulation, I ensure that the swelling in my eyes is greatly reduced. If I am very sleepy or have an important job, applying ice around my eyes is also effective. I swirl the ice very quickly to prevent it from sticking or damaging the capillaries. Applying Peter Thomas Roth Hyaluronic Cloud Eye Patches or Biologique Recherche VIP O2 mask intensely just under the eyes also refreshes my eyes.

Without a doubt, the most important step in my morning care routine is applying my sunscreen: Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF 30 has been my favorite for years. This product is Biologique Recherche's first SPF 50 Protection U.V., released last year. I use it alternately. At the end of my morning and evening routine, I comb my hair with my YS Park brush. If there is a slight frizz, I apply my David Mallett hair oil only to the ends.

In the evening or at night, when I finish the day and return home, the first thing I do is clean my face thoroughly. Air pollution is not beneficial for our sunscreen pores. I mostly have a two-step cleaning routine. First I use Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel or Epique Detoxifying Foam Cleanser, then an oil-based cleanser. My favorites are Karmameju Cleansing Balm 01 and Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm. If I have no time or if I am very tired, I can finish my evening routine at this point. I usually remove the make-up from my eyes with Bioderma Sensibio or Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil. Next up is my tonic, Biologique Recherche P50, which I think is the love of my life and probably the love of countless women's lives. I use the P50W as my skin is close to sensitive. This tonic, which I have been using for about a year, brightens my skin, tightens the pores, and alleviates the appearance of fine lines. I understand the difference even better when I am lazy or not. I apply an HA serum to the dry areas of my face and Biologique Recherche Dermopure to the oily areas. In my night routine, I usually choose moisture and line-focused products for my eye area. Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair, Tata Harper Restorative Eye Cream, Sisley Paris Sisleya L'Integral Anti-Age Eye & Lip Contour are among my favourites. Augustinus Bader The Cream and Vinter's Daughter Active Botanical Serum are indispensable for moisturizing my skin. Both are in the cult category for me.

After these steps, if I have time, I finish the day by massaging my face with my Karmameju face brush and Gua Sha. This massage helps me wake up to a more rested and healthy-looking Valerie the next morning.
