IRMA’s step by step programme brings you the perfectly nourished skin you want, especially during the hot summer months. Our procedure: Balance and protect your skin during the daytime and renew and nourish it during night time. With the right tool, we get even more powerful results.
We had a chat with Paul Peros, CEO of LUNA 2 by FOREO, a new beauty device you should know about.
IRMA: What is the difference between the LUNA and the Clarisonic brush?
PAUL PEROS: Everything – the only commonality is the application itself, and the fact that both use electricity. And even that is not completely true: the LUNA, in addition to facial cleansing, is also a powerful anti-ageing device.
From the operating principle where we opted for gentle, but effective T-sonic pulsations transmitted through hygienic silicone touch points, to the ergonomics of use, the shape, the fact that there is no replacement bristles, the compactness, and the 4-months charge battery performance. We have inspected every single design dimension for the best possible solution in order to bring to the market a product that serves the consumer.
IRMA: How can a brush help anti-ageing?
PAUL PEROS: Well, it can’t, the LUNA is not a brush. While part of the brush paradigm in terms of the facial cleansing, LUNA’s anti-ageing function operates at lower frequencies and higher wave lengths in order to address wrinkle-forming muscles. At the end of the day, our faces look the way we “wear” them with our muscles. In addition, the anti-ageing part of the routine is also excellent for the application of serums and creams.
IRMA: To see a real difference on my skin, how often should I use LUNA?
PAUL PEROS: The LUNA was designed to be used with every cleansing, so most of the time, it is twice per day.
IRMA: Can I use LUNA only for my face?
PAUL PEROS: You can also use the LUNA on other people’s faces. The hygienic silicone makes cleaning of the product very easy and effective. If you are referring to other parts of the body, while the product has been designed primarily for the face, it is also safe to use it for the body.
After cleansing my face with the Luna 2 by Foreo, masks and serums are even more effective. Find a list of my favourite ones at the moment and how to apply them:
DAILY REVIVING CONCENTRATE by KIEHL’S
After cleansing in the morning, I like to use a lightweight facial oil that keeps my skin radiant all day and at the same time defends it against daily aggressors and provides antioxidant protection with a powerful blend of naturally-derived oils, including ginger root, sunflower and tamanu.
CREAMY EYE TREATMENT by KIEHL’S
My eyes need extra care and protection, so I always have my eye cream with me and renew with a very small amount little bits under the eye by tapping the cream in with my fingertips. The effective natural ingredients provide daily hydration.
CILANTRO & ORANGE EXTRACT POLLUTANT DEFENDING MASK by KIEHL’S
A nature-powered mask after a busy day in town or a nighttime mask to purify and protect your skin. Cilantro and orange extract are a powerful combination to help reduce the visible effects of pollution. I use it twice a week either only for 20 minutes under a hot damp towel or all night long in a very fine & thin application.
NIGHTLY REFINING MICRO PEEL CONCENTRATE by KIEHL’S
After a long day when my skin is feeling dull, dry and tired, a few drops of this concentrated micro-peel give it a much-needed reset while I rest. Natural quinoa husk extract has powerful exfoliating properties that revitalize and renew while accelerating skin cell turnover. Nourishing aloe leaf juice hydrates skin to prevent redness and irritation, all good by the time I wake up in the morning and start with my beauty routine again.
