Simply follow these fundamental principles of a skincare regimen and you’ll be well on your way to glamorously glowing skin all through the upcoming winter season.
1. Cleanse Your Skin
This is the initial step in caring for your skin and should not be skipped because the more time we spend in traffic – basking in the warmth of the air-con – the more perspiration, grease, dust, stale make-up, dirt, and bacteria accumulate on your skin.
Cleansers provide excellent results for your skin (due to the pH levels of each, among other key ingredients) as they disinfect the skin, open the pores, and allows the skin to best absorb the products you will apply thereafter. For make-up lovers, a make-up remover is highly recommended (leave us a comment on our social media pages if you’d like some organic recommendations).
The best, and simplest way to cleanse, is to start by splashing lukewarm water over your face. Then, using a wad of cotton wool, apply the cleanser to your face, and décolletage area, in a circular, upward motion for at least five minutes Remove the cleanser by using a damp washcloth and warm water to ensure there is no product left on your skin.
Toning is crucial as it eliminates any residue on your skin after the cleansing process is completed.

NB: Remember that different types of skin types (oily, dry, sensitive, and prone to acne) require different types of cleansers. We highly recommend using the cleanser best suited for your skin – consult a professional if you are unsure.
(Remember to read the instructions provided with the cleanser you are using).
