Skincare isn’t complicated (so they say), but if you’ve recently walked down a skincare aisle you’d think otherwise. There are so many products, so many ‘promises’ and an unfathomable amount of active ingredients that are impossible to pronounce... It can be difficult to know where to begin when you’re trying to build a daily skincare ritual that works for YOU.
As a starting point, we would suggest these 5 simple steps daily to get the best results for your skin:
STEP 1: CLEANSE
The first step in your skincare routine is to ensure that it is clean. Did you know that cleansing removes dead skin cells, oils, dirt and excess sebum to ensure that your pores do not become clogged? Once you’ve cleansed, your skin will be left feeling fresh (and even lighter). You have also prepped your skin for the steps to follow. Formulated to naturally cleanse and purify the skin, Face Off is a gently foaming gel featuring a refreshing blend of bioactive ingredients such as lavender oil, avocado oil, mandarin oil and kakadu plum to name a few.
STEP 2: SERUM
Serums are the best way to deliver nutrients to your skin (pro tip: the Glow Roller increases serum absorption by up to 40%). Applying a serum after cleansing is a great way to promote healthy collagen production. Aim for a serum with antioxidant properties as these diminish the skin’s inflammatory response.
Skin Food is a natural blend of antioxidant rich organic extracts and Vitamin C designed to retexturize, brighten, hydrate and replenish your skin. The Vitamin C comes from the native Australian fruit, Kakadu plum. It also contains collagen from seaweed.
STEP 3: EYE CREAM
Where’s the first place that wrinkles appear as we age? You guessed it, our eyes. They are also the first indicator of tiredness or stress. This is because the skin under the eyes is thinner than the rest of your face, and more easily damaged. Applying an eye cream prior to moisturising helps to reduce puffiness and awaken soft, youthful eyes.
No More Bags is a light, non-greasy eye cream that offers a refreshing boost to those de-energized eyes.
STEP 4: MOISTURISER
Moisturising is perhaps the most important step in your skincare routine. Moisture is essential for your skin to constantly repair itself and be protected against the elements. Moisturisers also prevent bacteria growth and maintain elasticity. Applying your moisturiser directly after serum is the best way to lock in nutrients and hydration.
Our original magnesium moisturiser, Fix My Face, was designed to be absorbed over the course of several hours and is most effective when used overnight as a facial treatment.
Our exciting new moisturiser, Nourish My Face incorporates all of the things we love in a moisturiser and is perfect for daily application. Nourish My Face includes delicious ingredients such as cacao butter, sweet almond oil, shea butter as well as our famous topical magnesium which keeps your skins pH levels balanced and also encourages the reproduction of new skin cells so that your skin is always glowing. Perfect for the day time. Perfect for your routine.
(EXTRA) STEP 5: BLEMISH TREATMENT
Your blemish treatment (or Ugly Bits Stick) is essential for skin disasters, such as a giant pimple showing up the morning of a huge event! This must be applied to clean skin to maximise the benefits. For this reason, we recommend applying your Ugly Bits Stick after cleansing, before you moisturise, as well as another 4-5 times during the day for faster results. This clever little stick contains highly concentrated, hygroscopic molecules of magnesium chloride that can help fight off skin tags, acne, sun spots, blemishes, lumps and bumps.
