1. a religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order.
There is something very apt about Hungarian-born dermatologist Erno Laszlo’s decision to replace skincare ‘routine’ with skincare ‘ritual’. Because if you use Dr. Laszlo’s personalized system of order twice daily, almost as if religiously, there is a certain restoration of faith that takes place as you witness your skin become more balanced. And once you’ve discovered the Erno Laszlo way, you’re fully devoted to the cause.
The Erno Laszlo Ritual promotes thorough cleansing, gradual exfoliation and stimulating circulation. It gives skin a 24-hour cycle of continual, gentle conditioning and renewal. It’s a way of life that was conceived in 1927 Budapest, light years ahead of its time.
The basic ritual comprises 3 steps. Depending on your skin concerns, there is a bespoke regimen for you.
Step 1 – Cleanse
Combine your skin-specific cleanser with the Erno Laszlo Splashing Technique (more info below) to exfoliate, oxygenate and stimulate blood flow. This step prepares skin to fully benefit from toning and moisturizing.
