How to get the most out of your skin care products

Skin care is our best friend. And sure, when we’re busy we might miss the odd ‘catch-up’ but it’s always there and although sometimes it doesn’t go to plan – you can guarantee an unexpected breakout before a big day - but when you get there… boy does it feel good. To help us make the most of the feeling great skin gives us, we think nurturing this special friendship is important. After all, don’t we always look out for our pals?

These tips will make your skincare routine the best it can be…

  • 1

    Apply products at night.

    Make moisturising as important an important step in your routine. Applying skin care products before bed is also a must, as it gives your skin chance to really soak it up

  • 2

    Get to know your skin type.

    Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, or need a moisturiser with anti-ageing benefits, determining our skin type is the easiest way to nail effective skin care

  • 3

    Choose a gentle cleanser.

    You can over wash. Yep, it’s true. Cleaning your skin too much can actually dry it out, so choose a daily cleanser that’s gentle on skin

    Avoid harsh scubs.

    Resist the urge to use a harsh scrub during a spell of dry skin. It can be tempting to rub it into submission but use gentler body care products instead: it's far more effective in the long run

    Don't forget those hard-to-reach places.

    Think of your skin care routine as a body care routine: it should be a top-to-toe experience. (Which means more body lotion all round)

  • 6

    Consider your diet.

    Natural skin care starts from within: eat delicious foods with antioxidants to help protect your skin, as well as massively improving your mood
