The Perfect Skincare Routine

The MERME Guide will help you get the most out of your facial care. As a rule of thumb, always apply the lightest products first and then work to the richest.

Only want one routine? We understand! Then commit to an Evening Routine as this is when your skin works the hardest to repair itself and also your products have a better chance at absorbing.

EVENING ROUTINE
CLEANSER

In the morning, skin usually is still quite clean from the night before (no grime or makeup to remove). Just rinse your face with water or use preferred cleanser like a foam or a gel. We use MERME's Nourishing Body Remedy as it will remove any build up on the skin. 

TONER

A crucial step to rebalance the pH of your skin and to allow the following product to penetrate more effectively after. MERME’s Facial Antioxidant Mist can be sprayed directly onto your skin or via a cotton pad or gauze to remove any residue.

VITAMIN C TREATMENT

This step does not need to be applied daily but should still follow this order for proper functionality. To wake the skin up and encourage an even, bright complexion, try incorporating the Facial Brightening Vitamin-C Powder in your routine. It will also protect your skin from free radicals from pollution throughout the day.

COLLAGEN SERUM

Facial Collagen Serum mimics the effect of our body's natural collagen production, making your skin look firmer, fuller and smoother. It not only increases the concentration of collagen in your skin, it also helps your body to stimulate its own collagen production. Spray for a maximum intake 2-3 sprays directly on your clean face.

SERUM

The high active ingredient concentration of a serum is now best absorbed by the skin. Apply a serum, like MERME’s Facial Hydration Serum made of pure hyaluronic acid, and wait until it is absorbed.

EYE CARE

Eye products should be applied before your ‘all over’ hydrator for maximum impact. MERME’s Advanced Eye Therapy comes in a roll-on format and is a very rich oil that is perfect for this delicate area.

HYDRATOR

Apply a facial oil now, such as one of our Elixirs (BeautyBalancing or Healing) to lock in all the other treatments. This is also the step where creams can be applied.

SPF / MAKE-UP

Finally apply your SPF sunscreen before you apply your makeup. We recommend a mineral sunscreen to protect your skin fully from the sun's rays. Follow with your choice of makeup. Or have a make up free day!

EVENING ROUTINE
CLEANSER

For a ‘Double Cleanse’, start with an oil cleanser, like MERME’s Nourishing Body Remedy to remove dirt such as makeup and to break down any other oils. Oil Cleansers are great because they will dissolve all makeup (including waterproof mascara!) yet are gentle enough to not strip your skin. Follow with a foam or gel cleanser to remove excess residue.

TONER

A crucial step to rebalance the pH of your skin and to allow the following product to penetrate more effectively after. MERME’s Facial Antioxidant Mist can be sprayed directly onto your skin or via a cotton pad or gauze to remove any residue.

MASK / PEEL

This is recommended once or twice a week dependant on how clogged your pores are. Try our Deep Clean Facial Mask for a gentle buff and to remove dead skin cells.

TREATMENT

Treatments and masks don’t have to be done everyday but should still follow this order for proper functionality. Try a L-Ascorbic Acid like MERME’s Facial Brightening Vitamin-C Powder. If using our Vitamin-C Powder, either wash off after 20 minutes or keep on for optimal benefits. 

COLLEGAN SERUM

Facial Collagen Serum mimics the effect of our body's natural collagen production, making your skin look firmer, fuller and smoother. It not only increases the concentration of collagen in your skin, it also helps your body to stimulate its own collagen production. Spray for a maximum intake 2-3 sprays directly on your clean face.

SERUM

The high active ingredient concentration of a serum is now best absorbed by the skin. Apply the serum, like MERME’s Facial Hydration Serum made of pure hyaluronic acid, and wait a short time until it is absorbed. While you sleep, water is drawn from the air into your skin to intensively moisturise and smooth it at night.

EYE CARE

Eye products should be applied before your ‘all over’ hydrator for maximum impact. MERME’s Advanced Eye Therapy comes in a roll-on format and is a very rich oil that is perfect for this delicate area.

HYDRATOR

Apply a facial oil now to lock in all the moisture in the skin, such as one of our Elixirs (Beauty, Balancing or Healing). This is also the step where creams can be applied.
