Resetting your skin in three easy steps

Resetting your skin in three easy steps - ASSESS, DETOX AND TREAT

Hello, and almost Happy New Year! If you are like us, during the holidays you consume everything in excess...bad foods, alcohol and then the thing you should have in excess, sleep, you get less of which can wreck havoc on your skin! 

As we welcome a new year, it's the perfect time to hit the reset button on various aspects of our lives, including our skincare routine. Whether you've been neglecting your routine over the festive period, (imbibing like us) or want to adopt healthier habits, this is the perfect time to assess your skin's needs and reset your skincare routine.

Here's how to reset your skin in three easy steps: 


Assessing Your Skin's Needs
How is your skin looking and feeling? Is it a little tired after a fortnight of cake, wine and late nights? Is your skin dry, oily or dehydrated? Are you struggling with acne, sensitivity or redness?  

Assess Your Current Skincare Routine
Now delve into your skincare; do the products you're using address your current skin concerns? Are you using the right cleanser for your skin type? Is your moisturizer providing enough hydration?  What about the season? If its winter, are you using the right products to address the weather and how it affects your skin? Assessing your routine allows you to identify areas that may need improvement.  

Not sure where to start?? No need to fret! We're here to provide guidance and support. We're not proposing an entirely new routine (we value sustainability and budget-conscious choices), just some small adjustments that should hopefully do the trick.

Step 2 - DETOX

Just as we cleanse our bodies with detox diets, our skin also benefits from a thorough cleanse and detoxing. Use a gentle cleanser to remove impurities and unclog pores. Consider incorporating a detoxifying mask into your routine to draw out toxins and revitalize your complexion. This step helps create a clean canvas for the rest of your skincare products.

Here are a few of our favorite detoxing skincare products:

Targeted treatments and serums can address specific skin care concerns, such as fine lines, pigmentation, or acne. Consider adding a vitamin C serum for brightening, a hyaluronic acid serum for hydration, or a retinol treatment for anti-aging benefits. Introduce these products gradually and monitor how your skin responds.

We recommend:

Lightweight, stabilized vitamin C serum helps firm and brighten skin tone while promoting collagen production, and deeply hydrating skin with soothing aloe.
