Healthy skin requires a consistent daily routine and the right products for your skin type. Follow our simple facial skincare routine to help you make the best of your skin.
Always wash off makeup before bed as excess makeup and debris will cause the pores to clog. Gently massage your cleanser into the skin then remove with a damp cloth or wash off with warm water.
Tip: We prefer not to use cotton pads or tissues to remove as they can leave fibres behind that dry out the skin.
Exfoliating will remove dead skin cells and help to stop congestion whilst allowing your products to work more effectively. We recommend once a week for normal / dry skin and every 2 weeks for oily / combination skin.
Tip: If your skin is delicate or sensitive, exfoliate every 7-10 days by mixing your scrub in with a milky cleanser.
Toning will remove any excess cleanser, close your pores and rebalance the skin’s pH from the water. Pour a few drops into the palm of your hand and massage in.
Tip: Don’t underestimate a toner, they will help to remove chemicals from harsh tap water which dries the skin out.
4. Apply Serum
Serums have powerful effects on the skin as they have much smaller molecules than a moisturiser and are therefore able to penetrate the skin much deeper.
The skin around the eyes is much thinner than the rest of the face which is why using an eye cream is important. If a cream is too thick, it can cause the area to become puffy.
Tip: Use a grain of rice size per eye and gently pat around the socket. Too much cream too closely to the eye can cause puffiness.
Using the correct moisturiser morning & night will protect your skin against daily aggressions, provide essential hydration and help to address your specific skin concerns.
Tip: It’s a good idea to rotate your moisturiser once in while to treat your skin to a variety of active ingredients.
