1. Choose a cleanser to suit the season
Now is the time to switch your cleanser. What may have worked during the hot summer months may not quite work in the cooler Autumn weather. Choose a gentle cleanser that will NOT strip your skin of it’s natural PH levels. We recommend trying our Purifying Daily Cleanser. It is a gentle cleanser that will nourish and soothe the skin. We recommend double cleansing twice morning and night to remove impurities, toxins, and environmental pollutants.
2. Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliateeeeeeee
Exfoliating is an ESSENTIAL step in your skincare routine. Whatever the season. Removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores helps prepare your skin for the juicy moisturisers and serums to be applied.
