We know this is one of the most confusing things about skin care so we’ve broken it down for you step by step!
STEP 1 | CLEANSE
The base of any great skincare routine! Cleanse your skin morning and evening daily as the first step of your skincare routine. Some people prefer to just use warm water in the morning with a soft cleansing cloth and then use a cleanser specific to their needs in the evening. Make sure the water isn’t too warm - hot water can strip skin of it’s natural oils leaving your skin feeling dry and tight.

STEP 2 | HYDRATE
Regardless of your skin type - oily, normal, combination, dry - your skin needs hydration. Drinking enough water daily is key, but there are a number of products that can help boost your skin's hydration. Try using a serum with Hyaluronic Acid as your first step after cleansing. Working across multiple layers of the skin it can help carry your following products into the skin helping them work more effectively while helping keep skin hydrated, plump and glowing. Another hero ingredient for hydration is Polyglutamic Acid which aids in locking in moisture and helping the skin appear instantly smoother.
STEP 3 | TREAT
We stock number of serums and treatments that each target different skincare needs. When layering your serums, we recommend working from thinnest to thickest consistency, to ensure each absorbs fully into the skin. Start with any exfoliating toners or serums, they help sweep away dead and dehydrated cells from the surface of the skin helping your following products penetrate the skin better.
Use your eye cream around the orbital bone and under the brow - steering clear of your eye lids and gently pat in with your ring finger for the perfect amount of pressure.
STEP 4 | MOISTURISE
Moisturisers help draw and lock moisture into the skin while oils work on the surface of the skin, helping to keep your skin barrier strong, further locking in moisture and improving texture. Moisturisers help seal in the goodness from the serums you've used whilst also working on the surface level of the skin to provide their own nourishment & protection.

STEP 5 | SPF
The most important step in any skincare regimen! Ensure you pick an SPF Suncream with broad spectrum protection for UVA and UVB rays. Not all moisturisers include SPF so make sure you add an SPF to your routine of there is no protection in yours.
