To wipe away the dirt, oil and sweat accumulated whilst you sleep.
Avoid harsh foaming cleansers and choose something gentle such as a creme based cleanser.
Our favourite cleanser is Ikou Recovery Face Cleansing Cream.
It is hydrating, gentle and smells simply divine as it is made of natural plant extracts.
Many people don't use serums as they don't understand their purpose but they really are the most effective products as they get deeper than your moisturiser. So think of your serum as your skins treatment product. It's an active treatment that targets your main skin concern. So choose a serum to target your skin concern (breakouts, redness, dehydration etc). If you aren't sure which serum is best for you start with a hydrating serum as hydrated skin is the secret to beautiful skin and beautiful makeup.
On many beauty editors lists right now as a best seller is La Roche Posay Hyaluronic Acid Anti Ageing Serum.
Our founder Gem swears by Dr Natasha Cook Illuminating and Clarifying serums (one in the morning and one in the evening).
Your skins moisture and protection for the day time (along with your sunscreen).
Oily skin gets dehydrated too so everyone should be moisturising. Simply choose a light weight oil free version if you are particularly oily.
So many people worry their makeup will look cakes but that happens when you skip the moisturiser as your skin is so dehydrated that it tried to drink the moisture from your foundation instead.
If you will be in the sun then please apply sunscreen, it is the most anti ageing part of our regime as the sun causes the most damage.
Our favourite sunscreens for the face include Mecca's To Save Face and La Roche Posay's range (love their anti shine one for oily skin).
