How to build a skin care routine

If we know one thing, it’s that no skin care routine is universal. We’re all so different, after all, that it’s impossible to say that what works for one of us will work for another. But the foundations you build them on are the same for us all: advanced care, and all of the indulgence and enjoyment you can possibly cram into each step. So, with that in mind, here’s our guide to building an effective, indulgent daily skin care routine for your whole body that you’ll look forward to doing every day.

    Tailor your products.

    How you cleanse sets your skin up for the rest of the routine, so tailor it to you. If you have sensitive skin, you might want to avoid hot water, or if you have dry skin you might want to use a cleanser that’s super-moisturising

    Exfoliating is great for helping rid the skin of dead cells and other dirt and debris (plus, it’s great for getting your circulation going, too). How much of this you do is down to your skin type: you might prefer a gentle daily exfoliation, or a full-on dry body brushing session once a week

    Moisturiser is your skin’s secret weapon. It’s what your entire routine should be built around. Appreciate that moment of peace by making your everyday moisturiser something really indulgent, such as our Purely Pampering Shea Butter & Warm Vanilla Body Lotion

    Try new products.

    Sometimes your skin needs more than nourishment, so get the best out of your routine by thinking about what you want from your skin and using products that will help you deliver it

    Add a little something special to your routine.

    Scents are great for adding a little something extra to your routine – our Go Fresh Nourishment Body Lotion is infused with menthol and has a refreshing cucumber and green tea scent for ultimate invigoration
