Skin Preping 101- Are you following the right steps?

I’m sure we don’t all follow the essential steps for cleansing and treating our skin right! Do you??

Here is a breakdown of the important steps we must all take every morning when we wake up and evening right before we go to bed.


I suggest a Milk Cleanser for those who have sensitive, dry or dehydrated skin. Using a cleanser is important if you want to preserve the hydrolipidic film of your skin.

You can also use milk cleanser as makeup remover; you simply pump the milk cleanser into a gauze and gently rub your eyes and face with it. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

Try using Nelly De Vuyst’s Hydrocell Milk Cleanser

For those who don’t like the milk texture, you can use a Foaming Cleanser; a luxurious lather that gently purifies the skin and preserves the delicate epidermal barrier. It cleans your pores and removes dead skin cells.


There are several types of toner for different types of skin but the common use of a toner is to balance the PH of your skin and enhance the absorption of the next step…

A toner can also be used after your makeup application for a fresh radiant look.

What’s the difference between a Serum and Oil you ask?


A Serum penetrates to the dermal layer to correct deficiencies in the skin. Serum’s can come as water or oil based and can treat irritated skin, stimulate cellular renewal, increase circulation and even fight brown marks due to aging, pregnancy, scars and more.

An Oil’s work in a more preventative fashion and works wonders on your skin! Did you know oil makes your skin look and stay younger? Oils help eliminate skin impurities, promotes healing, prevents further breakouts, even out your skin tone, diminish the appearance of redness and can repair and soften your skin.

Try using the Purifying Extract Oil of Nelly De Vuyst. Used in conjunction with Soft Net Cleanser and exfoliate, it will reduce blackheads by 75% on one month!!! Isn’t that amazing?


We often forget to treat our eyes but we shouldn’t! Our eyes are the most sensitive, delicate and fast aging area of our face. Using eye cream day and night will help diminish the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, expression lines, dark circles and it even reduces puffiness and minimizes the risk of allergies.


Using a day and/or night cream is a big must! Creams hydrate and treat your skin depending of its necessities! There are several types of creams with different textures and ingredients.

If you have dry skin! Try using the Dry Skin Cream from Nelly De Vuyst

There are two more steps you shouldn’t forget to follow each month!


Exfoliation removes all dead cells and impurities that accumulates on the surface of the skin. It promotes cell renewal, improves skin texture and brightens the complexion.

I suggest using the 3 Minute Gommage” of Nelly De Vuyst! It works wonders!!!

You can exfoliate up to 3 times a week.

2)  MASK

You can apply a mask 1 to 2 times a week,  depending of your skin needs. A mask can even be used daily to cure  dehydrated  and sensitive skin, balance skin tone, relieve inflammation, restore radiance, improve elasticity and much much more.
