In the meantime, if any of you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to email, telephone or contact us.
1. A good cleanse
Wash your face thoroughly with a facial cleanser or face wash and pat dry your skin with a clean towel. Do this twice a day in the morning and before you go to bed.
2. 5-minute face mask
Treat yourself once a week to some ‘me time’ by applying a facemask. It should only take 10 minutes and afterwards you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
3. A good moisturiser
Whether you have dry, oily or a combination of the two, make sure you pick a moisturiser that is right for your skin type. We recommend Medik8 which is great if you are suffering from hyperpigmentation.
4. Invest in a good sunscreen
Did you know, 80% of ageing skin is caused by sun exposure? The best way to prevent is to start using SPF daily. We recommend at least a factor 30+ to keep those lines at bay.
5. Drink lots of water
Try to drink at least 8 glasses (2 litres) of water a day. This will help flush out toxins from your body, keep you hydrated and improve your complexion, as well as combating a variety of skin issues such as can help combat psoriasis and eczema.
