Importance of Having a Skin Ritual

Having a skincare routine is extremely important as it helps your skin stay in a good healthy condition.

Cleansing comes first. We shed skin cells throughout the day along with dirt, debris and pollution also getting onto our skin. It is important at the end of the day to remove all of this. We cleanse in the morning as we shed skin cells during the night, to remove any excess product and/or dirt. It also refreshes the skin and prepares it for make-up application.

Second. We Exfoliate. This is done 2-3 times a week, to remove your dead skin cells. This is important to allow your Serum and Moisturiser to penetrate your skin easier.

Thirdly. We Tone. This is done to balance your PH levels back to 5.5. Our toner provides anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which are great for any acne.

Fourthly. We apply a Serum. All Extract serums will balance out your oil production, fill your skin with antioxidants, and help your skin retain its moisture. Depending on what Serum you have chosen it will also help with overactive oil production, skin rejuvenation, or fine lines and wrinkles.

Fifthly. We moisturise. Helping your skin retain its moisture levels is one of the most important steps. Dry skin shrivels up plump skin cells, which can lead to premature fine lines and wrinkles. There are many causes to dry skin such as air conditioning, acid mantle is damaged by overuse of harsh products, fewer natural oils produced, sun damage, or decreased cell renewal.

Lastly, Sunblock. This is the most important step of your skincare routine. The sun gives off ultraviolet (UV) light which damages your skin and causes sunburn. Over time, these rays can lead to fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and other problem areas. The result: You can add years to your looks. Research shows that UV exposure is the reason behind 80% of your skin's aging.

An effective routine can help prevent acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and help keep your skin looking its best.
