Beginners Guide to Skincare

Identify your skin type


Before starting a skincare routine, there is one essential first step: determine your skin type!

Observe your skin throughout the day. Is your skin shiny and oily by lunchtime, or feels tight and dry to the touch? Whatever the case, these characteristics are indicative of your skin type.

The 5 basic types of skin




3 basic steps for a healthy and beautiful skin


Now that you know what type of skin you have you're ready to build a skincare routine around those 3 basic but essential steps.




Cleansing is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine. It removes makeup, unwanted oil and dead skin cells and it also helps to maintain skin’s natural moisture balance.


Our Top Tip: Always Double Cleanse. Double Cleansing (washing your face twice) has become the new standard for daily skin care routines and it is great to micro-exfoliate the skin on a daily basis. You can also use a facial cleansing brush. It is a great tool to stimulate circulation, complement exfoliation and improve skin tone and texture.
A truly enhanced cleansing experience!




Your skin needs moisture to replenish the water it loses throughout the day. Moisturisers with ingredients such as hydrating hyaluronic acid, illuminating Vitamin B3 or Zinc can restore and enhance skin health.

Even if you have oily or combination skin, it’s still important to moisturise. In fact, a lack of moisture can drive your skin to produce more oil in order to compensate for it, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts.

Applying a moisturiser will maintain skin health all day, giving your skin a healthy hydrated glow.


3-Wear SPF


It’s important to wear sunscreen every day. It prevents premature wrinkles, dark spots and provides protection from the harmful UV rays.

Many moisturisers and cosmetics have added SPF, making it easy for you to get the sun protection you need without applying another product.
