Love your skin!:)

Skin is important therefore we should look after it! You should make it routine to look after your skin and this 4 step process will help you keep your skin healthy and looking young!

Step 1: Cleanse

Buy a cleanser and use it at night before you go to bed to clean your pores and free your face from make-up and other dirt. There is no real need to cleanse in the morning as too much cleansing can also be bad for your skin.

If you have dryer skin use cleansers that are creamy and avoid alcohol-based cleansers. For oily skin clear cleanser will do.

Step 2: Tone

After your face is clean and dry, apply toner evenly across your face, be careful around eye area! Leave the toner on your face, it will return your skin pH to normal and kill any bacteria left on your face. If you have dry or sensitive skin buy a sensitive toner.

Step 3: Moisturise

When the toner has dried in your face will feel tight so now its time to moisturise. Apply a small bit of moisturiser and rub in using circular motions over your whole face. Moisturiser is essential for every skin type! It can come in many different types depending on what your requirements are so read the information on the moisturiser to get one to suit you!

Step 4:  Exfoliate

Once a week replace your cleanser with a exfoliator. Apply exfoliator and rub in using circular motions also. Use warm water and a wash cloth to clean the exfoliator off and remove dead skin cells.
