Cleansing ritual: your skin and your mind will thank you

People always say, when performing a proper beauty ritual, that the fundamental step you should NEVER skip is maintaining good hygiene.

Unfortunately, we often are not fully aware of this truth until we are older: raise your hand if, in your youth, you went to bed with your make-up on only to wake up in the morning and discover the pillow covered in mascara and your face not quite as it was the night before.

Dust, pollution, household contaminants, excess sebum and make-up products accumulate day after day and can be the cause of up to 40% of flaccidity, if not properly removed from the skin. What’s more, if your skin is not cleansed properly, your cosmetic treatments won’t be absorbed or achieve their optimal efficacy.

So, if you want to get serious about hygiene, MartiDerm suggests a complete line of 3 daily use products from our Essentials Range:

  • Micellar Gel
  • Micellar Cleansing Oil
  • Micellar Solution 3-in-1

And another 3 products for deep weekly cleansing, also from our Essentials Range:

  • Exfoliating Facial Cream
  • Hydro Mask
  • Pure Mask


The Micellar Cleansing Gel has the same composition as the micellar solution. However, it is applied in the following way: apply to damp skin, massaging into the face before rinsing off with water.

The gel is free from surfactants: it won’t irritate or dry out your skin. This means it is suitable for all skin types.

It can be used prior to the Micellar Solution 3-in-1.



Apply the Micellar Cleansing Oil to dry skin. Massage the face with the fingertips. Following the first massage, massage the face again but with a small amount of water to create an emulsion. This will activate the micelles which will help achieve a more effective cleanse.

To remove the oil, rinse the face with water or use a cotton pad dipped in Micellar Solution 3-in-1 as the final step in the process.



This can be used as a daily face and eye cleanser, or as the second step in the cleansing process following the application of a micellar oil or gel.

The composition of the Micellar Solution 3-in-1, much like the rest of the range, includes:

  • Prebiotics: these encourage the skin’s natural flora, protecting and defending the skin from external agents and factors.
  • Edelweiss flower: antioxidant, moisture, and protection.
  • Micelles: trap dirt and nourish the skin.

It does not need to be rinsed off with water.



One of our most outstanding cleansing products. Not just because it renews skin in a soft yet comprehensive manner thanks to the microbeads, but because it also helps achieve a sebum-regulating effect due to the high salicylic acid content.

We recommend you use the Exfoliating Facial Cream once a week for normal or dry skin. Or twice per week for combination or oily skin.

How to use it: Wet your skin. Apply a small amount of the product to the fingertips. Apply to the skin using gentle circular movement, emphasising the area around the nose and chin.

With this simple ritual, we can eliminate dirt and pollution residue that accumulates day after day.



Our green clay mask is perfect for normal, combination, and dry skin.

We recommend using it on clean, dry skin following an exfoliation treatment.

Once applied, leave it on to take effect for 20 minutes.  Use this time to stretch, close your eyes, and relax. After 20 minutes, gently remove with warm water.

Continuous use of the Hydro Mask guarantees a moisturising and firming effect thanks to the proteoglycans.



Our sebum-regulating mask Pure Mask is perfect for combination and oil skin.

The same as with the Hydro Mask, we recommend you apply it after your weekly exfoliation, leaving it on to take effect over 20 to 30 minutes.

Beyond this point, rinse it off with warm water. The directions for use are the same as for the Hydro Mask.

Use of this mask guarantees a purifying and sebum-regulating action. It also helps to treat spots and blackheads. It achieves a firming effect thanks to the action of the proteoglycans.

Cleansing is the first step to achieving healthy, youthful and beautiful skin. It can also become a ritual through which you can disconnect while loving and pampering yourself. Love yourself a little more each day. You will see the difference. #SmartAging
