Starting any skincare regime with thoroughly cleansed skin is key to making sure the other steps in your regime are as effective as possible.
Try a cleanser that contains an exfoliating ingredient such as Glycolic Acid as this will help remove dead skin cells as well as deep cleansing.
We love Jan Marini’s Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser.
Use an Antioxidant
An antioxidant will go a long way in protecting your skin from free radical damage (in addition to a sunscreen). It also helps repair any existing sun damage and encourages the production of collagen, a key component within skin for helping it stay elastic and supple.
We love SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF.
Keep Skin Hydrated
Skin can dry out quickly so it’s important to keep it hydrated with a moisturiser or hydrator that contains Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural humectant and attracts 1000 times its own weight in water.
We love Medik8s Hydr8 B5.
Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter; it doesn’t matter what season it is, sunscreen should be worn 365 days a year. This is the most effective thing you can do to protect your skin from sun damage which consequently leads to premature ageing.
We love Heliocare Gel SPF 50.
Don’t Use Too Many Skincare Products
Don’t subject your skin to too many products. Overuse of lots of different products will not have the effects you’re looking for and could be detrimental to your skin. Follow the simple steps above and you’ll see the benefits.
