How to build a skin care routine

If we know one thing, it’s that no skin care routine is the same. We're all so different after all, it’s impossible to say that what works for one of us will work for everyone else. But the foundations you build your routine 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 moisturised skin care routine for your whole body that you'll look forward to doing every day.

Steps on How To Build A Moisturised Skin Care Routine

Step 1: Match Your Products to Your Skin

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.

Step 2: Exfoliating - Out With The Old

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

Step 3: The Magic of Moisturisers

It’s what your entire routine should revolve around. Make your everyday moisturiser something really special. Try his rich formula - it has nourishing shea butter that’s infused with warm vanilla to instantly hydrate your skin, leaving you with replenished, soft, and moisturised skin. Deeply nourished skin that comes with big extravagance.

Step 4: Mix It Up

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 sticking to products that will help you make that a reality. Maybe you want your skin to feel replenished, soft and supple?
