STEP TWO – TONE
Toners help to minimise pores and remove unwanted substances that may have been missed. Some toners called ‘astringents’ contain harsh ingredients such as alcohol and parabens, found to increase the risk of breakouts and induce allergic reactions. Make sure yours is not an ‘astringent’ but a ‘freshener’: the mildest, alcohol-free toner that is suitable for all skin types.
If you’re looking to save time in your routine and save a few pennies. Then Micellar water is for you, it is a cleanser & toner in one. Also ideal to use on holiday.
STEP THREE – MOISTURISE
It’s all about protection in the day and keeping the skin hydrated. Dry skin can be caused by a multitude of factors, but a good moisturising regime can keep irritated and flaky skin at bay. But what about if you have regular, combination or oily skin – is this step still important? The answer is yes. If you don’t use a moisturiser, your skin can react by producing an excess oil to rectify the dehydration, creating a vicious cycle. The key is to find the right oil-free, light moisturiser that include humectants to draw water to the surface of your skin.
During your morning routine, try dampening your face with some water before using your moisturiser. This will hold in the water and keep you hydrated throughout the day.
In the winter go for a rich cream moisturiser and in the summer change to a lighter texture. Don’t forget to protect your skin with an SPF 15. We recommend a sun protection factor all year round….in the winter to protect your skin from the wind and the rain, as well as in the summer months.
IN THE EVENING…..Your skin functions differently at night which is why we need to use a product that will work with these repair rhythms. That’s why Decleor night balms are so effective. The unique balm texture will drip feed the skin for 8-10 hours while you sleep. Night Balms leave your skin looking flawless and rested. It’s formula will also help induce a more restful sleep.
