5 Secrets to glowing skin
I get asked regularly what is the best way and method, or routine, to your apply skincare. As a Cosmetic Chemist and skincare lover I'll let you in on the industry secrets about what is the best skincare routine to follow.
Follow these simple tips are you'll thank me soon when you see amazing results.
Tip #1 - Thinnest product goes on first, and work through to the thickest product last
Step One - Cleanse
Either single or double cleanse - this will be covered in a further blog. I like to splash my face with water before applying the first cleanser, I find it easier to distribute the cleanser over my skin. Massage the cleanser into your skin for 30 to 60 seconds then wash off with warm water and a soft cloth.
Recommendations: Antioxidant Cleaning Oil
Step Two - Exfoliate
Aim to use a mask two to three times a week.
Recommendations: Pink Clay Face Mask
Step Three - Toner
Hydrating Mist penetrates the skin's surface and cleans and closes pours. It gently exfoliates and prepares the skin for the next step.
Recommendations: Chamomile Hydrating Mist Toner
Step Four - Moisturise
During the day I prefer the Golden Jojoba Face Cream, and use Kakadu Plum Night Cream for the evening.
Tip #2 - Wait 10 to 30 seconds between each skincare step
This gives each stage time to fully immerse into your skin.
Tip #3 - Don't forget the décolletage area!
The décolletage (neck and chest area) is a critical cosmetic area and often overlooked. Due to a decrease in collagen production as we age and less elasticity, the décolletage develops wrinkles and thin skin over time. Don't forget to include it with your facial skincare routine. All of our cleansers, masks and moisturisers are perfect for use on your décolletage.
Tip #4 - The evening skincare routine ritual
The evening skincare ritual is my favourite. By removing my make-up (when I wear it!) and nourishing my face it feels like the day is drawing to a close and my skin glows when it is cherished daily. Rather than rushing through your evening routine try using it as a time to connect with your skin and enjoy nurturing it.
Tip #5 - Keep your skincare routine simple and enjoy!
