Always cleanse twice a day to keep your skin clean and go for a formula suited to your skin type. Look for a cleanser with deep cleansing properties and one that contains vitamin C and salicylic acid to brighten the skin and help to dissolve clogged pores, oil-based impurities, and makeup.
Exfoliating is an instant way to transform the skin. It removes dry, flaky skin and if you do it at least once a week, your skin will be smoother and brighter. Whether you choose a gritty scrub, cloth, or a peel, exfoliate after your night-time cleanse. It’s the key to radiance and the quickest way to get rid of a dull complexion.
Don’t forget the rejuvenating powers of a mask. With so many to choose from you can deal with every skin concern from pigmentation, to dryness, dull and even stressed skin. Packed full of vitamins and active ingredients they are a multi-action treatment that will transform the complexion. Go for ones that add moisture, whether it’s in the form or a sheet mask that you lay over your face, a cream formula that you slather on, or one that you wear overnight. Just use it at least once a week.
Serums are an important step in your skincare routine as they are potent moisturisers that go deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin. Using them every day can help to make your skin firmer, smoother, and increase moisture levels. Look for ones containing antioxidants like vitamin C, anti-inflammatories like aloe vera, and hydrators like amino and essential fatty acids. Apply before your moisturiser.
Hydration is the key to optimising skin plumpness and glow, so make sure you use a moisturiser every day. Look for formulas that provide continuous moisture throughout the day and contain fatty acids, barrier repairing ceramides, and hyaluronic acid. This will help to put back lost moisture in the colder weather.
