MÁDARA SKIN CAFÉ beauty therapists share 5 simple and proven step-by-step techniques for effective and targeted at-home facials you'll be eager to try tonight.

1 ENERGY BOOST

to restore your skin's vitality, target dullness, and the first fine lines

STEP 1: Apply the BRIGHTENING AHA PEEL MASK all over the face, except the eye and lip area. Leave for 5 minutes. Rinse well and apply a toner.

STEP 2: Mix together SOS INSTANT MOISTURE+RADIANCE HYDRA MASK and ULTRA PURIFYING DETOX MASK (1:1) to boost your skin's radiance with double power. The detoxifying and clarifying mud absorbs pollutants and impurities while the super moisturizing and smoothing ingredients of the SOS mask deeply hydrate and add a healthy glow. Apply plain SOS mask to your lips and in the eye area. Leave for 10 minutes. Rinse well.

STEP 3: Finish the treatment with your preferred moisturizer or SUPERSEED facial oil. Illuminate your complexion and even out the skin tone with a SUNFLOWER or MOONFLOWERtinting moisturizer.

2 TOTAL RECOVERY

for tired and stressed, mature, dehydrated or lax skin; to smooth out the first lines and prevent wrinkles

STEP 1: Apply AHA PEEL mask all over the face, except the eye and lip area. Leave for 5 minutes, rinse well and apply a toner.

STEP 2: Pamper your skin with the super hydrating SOS mask. Apply it all over your face. Leave for 10 minutes. Gently wipe off with a toner.

STEP 3: Infuse your skin with the precious vitamins of sea buckthorn and cloudberry, found in the nutrient-rich and repairing DAILY DEFENCE cream. Apply it to your face generously and leave for 10 minutes. Gently wipe off with a toner. Meanwhile, apply plain SOS mask to your lips and around the eyes.

STEP 4: Finish your beauty treatment with a few drops of SUPERSEED AGE RECOVERY facial oil.

3 SUPER DETOX

to cleanse, comfort and balance oily and acne-prone skin; to minimize enlarged pores and prevent breakouts

STEP 1: Start with the AHA PEEL mask. Apply it to your face thoroughly, avoiding the eye and lip area. Leave for 5-10 minutes, rinse well and apply a toner.

STEP 2: Gently polish your skin with the EXFOLIATING OIL-TO-MILK SCRUB to remove dead skin cells. The active ingredients of AHA PEEL mask soften the bonds between the dead skin cells, while SCRUB ensures even deeper exfoliation, so necessary for oily and clogged skin.

STEP 3: Apply DETOX mask to your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, and SOS mask to your lips and around the eyes. Leave for 5-10 minutes. Rinse well, pat dry. The detoxifying and clarifying mud absorbs pollutants and impurities, helps to reduce inflammation and prevents breakouts. One more tip: DETOX mask can also be used as an overnight spot treatment just put it directly on the breakout.

STEP 4: Finish the treatment with your preferred MÁDARA moisturizer. Illuminate your complexion and even out the skin tone with a SUNFLOWER or MOONFLOWER tinting moisturizer.

4 THE BALANCING ACT

well-considered care for combination skin with dry cheeks and oily t-zone

STEP 1: Polish away the dead skin cells with the EXFOLIATING OIL-TO-MILK SCRUB. Rinse well, pat dry. The scrub will uncover a smoother and healthier skin instantly.

STEP 2: Let's do some multitasking. Pamper the drier areas of your face (cheeks, lips, and skin around the eyes) with the super hydrating SOS mask while balancing the t-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) with the clarifying and pore-refining DETOX mask. Leave both masks for 10 minutes, rinse off.

STEP 3: Finish the treatment with your preferred MÁDARA moisturizer. Illuminate the complexion and even out the skin tone with a SUNFLOWER< or MOONFLOWER tinting moisturizer.

5 NIGHT OUT

instant treatment before a party or date; to boost your glow and remove all signs of fatigue

STEP 1: Polish away the dead skin cells with the EXFOLIATING OIL-TO-MILK SCRUB. Rinse well, pat dry. NB! Never use PEEL mask right before going out, as peeling fruit acids may cause temporary redness.

STEP 2: Pamper your skin with the moisturizing and radiance-boosting SOS mask. Leave for 10 minutes, gently wipe off with a toner.

STEP 3: Finish the treatment with your preferred MÁDARA moisturizer or SUPERSEED RADIANT ENERGY facial oil. Illuminate the complexion and even out the skin tone with a SUNFLOWER or MOONFLOWER tinting moisturizer.
