Combination Skin

Combination skin is normally when you have dry cheeks and an oily T-zone. It can also be oilier or dryer at certain times of the month or year. If your skin is a little temperamental, then this is the routine for you.

Step 1: Cleanser

A face wash is an effective way of getting rid of the day’s accumulated grime and excess oil so your skin isn’t left congested and dull. This one is also gentle on sensitive skin and fragrance-free, so it won’t leave dry patches or your skin feeling even more parched and irritated.

Step 2: Toner

A toner sweeps away any lingering dirt and oil, as well as restoring your skin’s PH levels. This formula is dermatologically approved and enriched with pro vitamin B5, so it will leave your skin balanced, but also hydrated.

Step 3: Serum

This serum has been specially formulated to be sensitive on the skin, so it’s unlikely to cause irritation (which can make oily patches oilier or dry patches drier!).

Step 4: Mosturiser

Thanks to its built-in serum, this moisturiser absorbs deeply to quench your dry cheeks, while refining fruit acids work to exfoliate and de-congest oily areas.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is lacking in oil, so it can often feel irritated and tight, as well as having a rough, flaky texture.  It’s also prone to fine lines and redness. Treat it with this results-driven regime.

Step 1: Cleanser

As dry skin is more likely to be sensitive, you need to make sure the cleanser you use isn’t too harsh or it will dry the skin out further. This gentle formula ticks all the boxes.

Step 2:

If your skin is dry, it’s often dehydrated. This serum features hyaluronic acid, which works to increase the skin’s water levels, soaking up moisture like a sponge to keep it plumped and happy.

Step 3: Moisturiser

Moisturiser is essential for dry skin, to keep it nourished and comfortable, while strengthening the skin barrier to lock in hydration. This features brightening vitamin C to leave skin looking renewed and to protect it from environmental damage.

Weekly Face Mask

For whenever your skin is feeling particularly thirsty or weatherbeaten, the ‘hero’ ingredient in this mask is shea butter, which is a powerful emollient to leave skin feeling soft and replenished.

Oily Skin

Oily skin tends to produce too much sebum, which makes the skin look shiny or greasy, prone to congestion and spots. Here’s how to take care of it.

Step 1: Cleanser

Foaming cleansers are a good idea for oily skin as they are excellent at removing excess dirt and oil. This contains hydrating niacinamide, so it won’t dry the skin out in the process.

Step 2: Toner

An acid toner exfoliates the skin at a chemical level, to dissolve dead skin cells and excess oil, which can lead to breakouts. This affordable toner features the star ingredient glycolic acid for a clear, radiant complexion.

Step 3: Serum

Just because your skin is oily doesn’t mean you should dry it out (it will only react by producing even more oil!). This lightweight night serum will leave it feeling moisturised - but not greasy.

Weekly Face Mask

Oily skin is prone to looking congested and dull. This hardworking clay mask will help draw out impurities and mop up excess oil, with antibacterial witch hazel to prevent blemishes.
