New Year New Skin Resolutions
The New Year is here! It’s the perfect opportunity to start the year with good skincare habits and resolutions. It’s always a good time to assess your current routine and products – so to make it easy, we’ve put a list together to make 2020 your skin's best year yet!
Don’t forget your ABC’s!
ABC is the ultimate trio you should be using in your skincare regime.
Vitamin A should be incorporated into your nightly skin regime. Our Retinol Brulee helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and is perfect for anti-ageing, skin regulation and renewal and assists in the delivery of nutrients. Slowly work this into your routine starting every third night.
Our Vitamin B serum, Extreme B 17 is a powerhouse serum formulated with B vitamins that helps in preventing dehydration, evens out skin tone and can balance excess oil. It’s also great for hydration, mattifying, and antioxidant protection.
Extreme C 20 is a powerful antioxidant serum that can help with uneven skin tone, promote elasticity, help with radiance and much more! Our Extreme C 20 helps to promote skin elasticity and illuminate appearance. Use this every day as part of your morning routine.
Use SPF everyday
Regardless of the season or whether the sun is shining, this is one skincare product you must wear everyday of the year. Our Aspect Sun range is the perfect collection of Broad-Spectrum UVA and UVB SPF50 and 50+ to elevate your daily routine. Ultra- hydrating, lightweight and fast absorbing for all year every day use, check out the full range HERE.
Exfoliate & Mask
Exfoliating doesn’t necessarily mean scrubbing away at your skin. It comes in many forms including cleansers, serums and masks. Our Retinol Brulee has a blend of Retinol & Retinyl Palmitate to help regenerate and smooth the skin. If your skin is on the oilier side, our Exfoliating Clay Mask targets excess oil and impurities helping to leave your skin looking clean and clear. Our Fruit Enzyme Mask is suited to all skin types and is a great exfoliating gel mask to help remove lifeless skin cells. If you’re looking to hydrate, our Probiotic Mask or Hydrating Masks are the perfect additions to add to your skin routine.
Build the right night routine
The best time to go that extra step and rejuvenate and revitalize your skin is whilst you’re sleeping. It’s the perfect opportunity to give your skin some extra nourishment. It’s so important to make sure you’re cleansing your skin at night especially if you’ve had make up on throughout the day and this should be your first step in your routine. Our Purastat 5 Cleanser is a gentle exfoliating foaming cleanser which gets rid of dirt, makeup and excess oil plus environmental pollutants. The perfect night cleanser to add into your night time routine!
The next step is including a serum, based on your skin concerns and ensuring you’re using retinol to help refine and improve the appearance of your skin. Our Retinol Brulee is perfect for this. Serums should always be applied from thinnest to thickest consistency for maximum effect. Pair this with our Eyelift 3 which has been formulated to target and minimise the appearance of dark circles, under eye puffiness and wrinkles. Fast absorbing and lightweight to help illuminate the delicate eye area.
Finally, you should be including a moisturiser that is richer than what you’re putting on in the morning as this will elevate your hydration levels. Our Super Moisturising Complex is perfect for night use as it provides extra nourishment and hydration. Phytostat 9 also delivers a surge of hydration to reveal smoother more vibrant looking skin. You can also use this around the eye area for intense hydration.
