Step 1: Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse
The first step is any skin care routine should be a facial cleanser. No matter your skin type or what cleansing product you use, this is an absolute staple to cleanse your skin and wash any grime away that may be clogging your pores.
In the morning reach for a reviving cleanser to start your day right. The Pure Clay Eucalyptus Purifying Cream Face Wash combines the deep cleansing action of three clays and refreshing natural eucalyptus to purify skin. Simply apply to damp skin and massage in small circles while the cleanser foams and works to remove impurities. Gently rinse and towel skin dry with a clean face washer. While a tempting time saving option, avoid washing your face in the shower as the skin on your face is delicate and the hot water may strip essential hydration.
Your evening cleanse should involve a double cleanse. Your first cleanse is to remove makeup and other environmental pollutants, to cleanse away the day before you wash your skin. We love the Gentle Eyes & Lips Make-Up Remover for effortless removal of even waterproof makeup. After using makeup remover, follow up with another gentle cleanser to get rid of any residue such as the Age Perfect Classic Facial Cleansing Milk enriched with magnesium and vitamin C. This will help cleanse skin directly without having to penetrate a layer of grime or makeup.
Step 2: Apply a facial serum
While a serum may sound (and feel) quite indulgent, it's an important step in your routine, to give your skin a boost, as serums are formulated with concentrated ingredients that deliver results. Your facial serum should always be applied just after cleansing to ensure maximum efficacy. If you need a streamlined routine with only a few products, you can’t go wrong with a hyaluronic serum. The Revitalift Filler Hyaluronic Acid 1.5% HA Serum is the perfect all-rounder suitable for all skin types. Super hydrating without being greasy, this serum helps skin feel hydrated, more youthful and plumped over time. It’s a no-brainer!
If you’re opting for a concentrated eye serum you can always apply this first, wait a moment for it to absorb, then apply your facial serum. We love the Age Perfect Cell Renewal Regenerating Eye Serum for targeted results.
Step 3: Get your hydration on with moisturiser
In the AM, after applying your serum, reach for a moisturiser such as Revitalift Classic Day Cream that nourishes and smoothes skin without feeling too heavy during the day. Day moisturisers are formulated to hydrate without residue to ensure you can easily apply makeup over the top. However, in the evening it’s time to give your skin the royal treatment and treat it to a rich, repairing night cream that will work while you rest. Give the Age Perfect Cell Renewal Regenerating Night Cream a try if you want to wake with refreshed and nourished skin. Make sure when putting any moisturiser on to smooth it gently on your face in an upwards motion and down to your neck – remember, the signs of ageing don’t stop at the face, so your neck and décolletage need targeted hydration too. Apply your moisturiser after your facial serum. Always hydrate skin before makeup application during the day, and as the last step in your routine at night.
Step 4: Protect your skin with sunscreen (everyday!)
Step 5: Make time to use a face mask
Step 6: Exfoliate (just enough)
A face scrub is a physical exfoliant and uses the gritty texture of the formula to gently buff away dead skin cell. We love Pure Clay Red Algae Exfoliating Face Scrub or our natural Sugar Scrubs Glow Face Scrub, which suitable for face and lips and enriched with grape seed oil and vitamin E to nourish skin as it reveals a bright, smooth complexion. Chemical exfoliants work by dissolving the bonds that hold skin cells together, targeting dead cells to reveal the bright, fresh skin beneath.
