We are often asked for our advice when recommending skincare products from our site and it can seem sometimes that whilst searching for that perfect Skin Care Routine that it is easy to fall into the trap of using too many products.
It seems to be a common problem that many people ask on skin care forums on the internet.
We believe that starting off. or returning to, the basics is the best thing to do.
Cleanse – Tone – Moisturise.
These 3 steps should be the cornerstone of all good Skin Care Routines.
The Cleanser will remove all of the debris, sebum and environmental contaminants as well as preparing the skin for the other products that are to follow. The Toner will then add water directly back to the skin followed by the Moisturiser. This should be done twice daily: morning and evening.
Now there are many other types of Skin Care Products which you could now begin to add to your routine but all may not be necessary. There are Exfoliants, Masques (Masks), Eye Creams, Serums, Boosters, Targeting Treatments and many, many more. Each have a distinct role in looking after the skin. We find that some clients need a few and some need more.
We would urge you to seek professional advice from a Skin Care Therapist and try the products first with samples to see if they fit into your Skin Care Routine and if they delivery the results you’re looking for.
If you find yourself surrounded by numerous pots and tubes of all different types of products – take a closer look at each of them and bring it back to basics. Decide what you’re looking for and make sure that the products you are using are delivering the results you deserve.
