IRMA’S Step by Step
On how to get a “clear, poreless, translucent complexion

The secret is: A multistep skin-care routine that includes double cleansing, exfoliating and layering on brightening and hydrating products.




  • Look for a FOUNDATION that have an emollient finish (Dior Forever 24 h Wear High Perfection Skin-Caring Foundation )
  • Use a HIGHLIGHTER that rely more on a translucent sheen than on the shimmer finishes of the past. The Chanel Baume Essentiel in Transparent)

USE IT LIKE THIS: use it on the high points of the face: the top of the cheekbones, right below the brows on the highest point of the brow bone, the centre of the top eyelid, the bridge of the nose — never go all the way to the tip of the nose — the cupid’s bow and a hint right on the highest point of the chin, than blend !


  • Drink more than 2 Litres of water a day.
  • Choose foods that have high water content, like cucumbers, romaine, tomatoes and melons. “The water is trapped within the web of nutrients in the food,” and that allows for optimal absorption of water and keeps you hydrated longer.”
  • Sleep, comfortable in a good temperature room without any disruptions.
  • Rested skin appears plumper, better hydrated and better circulated. It definitely has more radiance.
