HOW TO BUILD YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE

Even with no contact to makeup products or grime from the external environment, all skin types need to be pampered both morning and night. But what order should you be using your products in? We have put together a step by step routine for you to achieve glowing, healthy skin at its best.

The accepted rule of thumb for a skincare routine order is to apply your products in order of thickness, starting with the thinnest or lightest products, and finishing with the thickest creams. This allows your skin to absorb each product the best it can.

Step 1. Cleanse

It's important for all skin types to cleanse the skin every morning and night to remove makeup, impurities, dead skin cells and excess oils. Our cleansers offer a wave of freshness by removing excess oils and eliminating the impurities. 

For a more intense cleanse, try double cleansing. This 2-step technique uses two different cleansers to target both impurities of: oil-based and water-based.

Why double cleanse? An oil-based cleanser removes oil-based impurities, including sebum, suncreen and makeup. A water-based cleanser removes water-based impurities, including sweat and dirt.

Step 2. Prep The Skin

This Tri-Phase Essence helps maintain skin balance and strengthens the skin barrier for visibly improved skin quality and a healthy-looking glow. Enriched in powerful Botanicals of Prebiotic, Immortelle Essential Oil and Acmella, this essence acts as the first treatment in your skincare routine to maintain your skin’s balance and strengthen your Microbiome for a more radiant complexion.

After cleansing, shake well to activate the essence, then spray 3 doses directly into the palm of your hand. Gently press the product in a roll and lock motion into your skin. For an even more sensorial experience, follow by an indulgent massage using either your hands or a massaging tool to awaken the skin and stimulate blood flow.

Step 4. Eye Cream

The delicate skin under your eyes is extremely thin and sensitive, and can be one of the first places to show signs of ageing, as well as stress and fatigue. Eye care and eye creams contain targeted ingredients to help keep your eyes glowing.

A light massage of pressure points around the eye can improve the effectiveness of our eye care products. Start at the inner corner of your eyebrow and move outward, then repeat from the inner corner of your eye towards the outer corner.

Step 5. Nourish & Moisturise

Stress, lack of sleep, changing temperatures... Your skin tends to become dull, dry and sometimes itchy. All these external factors should not deprive your skin of its moisture.

Let your skin breathe and offer it the softness and hydration it needs by using a nourishing and moisturising cream, choosing the texture that’s most suited to your needs.
