What does a typical daily skincare routine include?

There are many effective skincare regimes that can be followed. It’s probably better to speak to one of our skincare advisers if you’re unsure how to tailor your regime to your individual needs. Here’s a basic regime as an example:

In the morning:

  • Cleanse excess oil and debris from your skin.
  • Clarify your skin with toner.
  • Lighten and brighten your skin tone with vitamin C serum.
  • Hydrate your skin with moisturiser.
  • Protect your skin from UVA/UVB and, therefore, premature ageing with sunscreen.

In the evening:

  • Repeat the cleansing and toning steps to clean and clarify the skin.
  • Repair, normalise and regenerate the skin with vitamin A (retinol).

It’s not always necessary to apply vitamin A to your skin every day, and you may want to begin adding other products to your regime to alternate with vitamin A such as a hyaluronic. There are also products such as growth factors, or devices that you can use to make your products more effective.

Don’t forget, we’re here to help and able to talk you through our range to help you find the right regime for your individual needs. If you can’t see what you’re looking for please feel free to speak to one of our advisers on 0113 282 7744.
